    Developer Joonie of Team Rebug has announced today the latest cfw release (following 4.84.2 rex) of the REBUG brand. This is not the iconic REX flavor of PS3 Custom Firmware, which is a hybrid of dex/cex, In order for the creation of REX, the team is dependent and still in search for file's needed for the creation of REX (4.85 DEX PUP). However, they have the LITE version (a CEX based Cobra CFW) ready to go for 4.85 user's seeking a new 4.85 CFW. This is a welcomed update from Team Rebug as the 4.85 PS3 CFW landscape has been a bit light in choices (for 4.85). So having the developer's with one of the best name's in Custom,Firmware development is great to see now as an available option. Also, they have updated the Cobra payload to now version 8.2 & also the Rebug Toolbox has been updated (toolbox addon requires installation in "install package files" pkg is waiting for you there after installing REBUG) You can checkout all the feature's/patche's in the provided list below for this PlayStation 3 Custom FirmWare and then checkout full details/documentation of the release at the official website (direct link found at bottom of article).

    Also note that 4.85 SPY COBRA CFW has also been a good/stable CFW flavor as well , more details on that release can be Seen here. Also note that SPY Cobra CFW will not be using the latest Cobra v8.2 (without an update) as its debuting here on 4.85.1 REBUG Lite.

      Okay, thank you very much Coldheart2236
      I choose to wait for Rebug 4.85 REX/D-REX, then the system can't get any worse at least :)
      Or maybe someone else has the same problem and a fix ;)

      Mister @Joonie, on github forked from project Cobra 7.3 of @aldostools I saw the stage2.cex and the stage2.dex compiled for Firmware 4.85.

      So I ask you if you expect the OFW 4.85 DEX to be released, in order to create the REBUG REX / D-REX ?

      Is it also possible to use Cobra 8.2 on the current REX 4.84.2 Rebug?

      I can replace the stage2.cex and the stage2.dex I have to wait for a release of the current REX Rebug ?

      Thanks, always fantastic.

      I think
      • stage2.cex is stage2.cex.release (finalized version it can't debug output log using socat) and
      • stage2.dex is stage2.cex.debug (which can debug output log using socat to let user see what happens in ps3)
      what rco/sprx/self is called when click on/launch something but maybe i am wrong maybe he create stage2.dex for 4.85 as no changes between firmwae 4.84 and 4.85 (CEX) and he made it for DEX

      I think he always expect to get sooner OFW DEX when new OFW (CEX) is released to make REBUG Full Edition(REX/D-REX) faster but that depends on devs,users,people who own a real debugging station and accept to share/leak OFW DEX PUP to joonie so he can release his REBUG REX/D-REX Edition

      You can replace Cobra files from Evilnat's git he update Cobra 8.2 source for diffrent firmware bins will not cause any harm only it could lead to soft-brick if you do something wrong but lv2*kernel.self need to be replaced in unpacked REBUG 4.84 REX PUP but lv2 kernel can lead to perma-brick if you do something wrong or something happend by accident file can be damaged if you have pc with viruses and this cannot be recovered even if you have hardware flasher as it can kill your ps3 as lv2kernel can call/read/write to diffrent places in ps3 and SYSCON is one of them and those can have no way back to return to working PS3 even if you have valid dump before and HW Flasher so i suggest you to wait for @Joonie maybe he can update REBUG 4.84 with Cobra 8.2 :)

      Nope i think when you do it you will get no display till you pull out your HDD ,one of my friend try that before and he gets his PS3 like it still ON but no display till he format the HDD then he gets his ps3 to work

      In CFW 4.84 I had the error 80028F10 with PSX PAL games.
      In 4.85 I still can't play PSX PAL games. :(

      Have you tried using IRISMAN? I haven't been on PS3 much lately, or tried this version of REBUG, but IRISMAN always worked well for me to play PAL PSX games.

      In IRISMAN they work. When I use 4.83 they work with webman.

      Will it be a bug in CFW 4.84 and 4.85?
