    You simply download the 4.84 CFW (newest Rebug is 4.84.2 - download from here) and install it via USB. What is the problem you're having updating? If you're on CFW already it's as simple as updating via USB on to the newest CFW.

    Edit: I misread. Are you wanting to install another 4.84 CFW (e.g. Ferrox) or a lower firmware version?

    Did you convert to DEX while on Rebug REX? or did you install D-REX? You will need to convert back to CEX if you did.

    Do you mind if I ask why you want to install OFW? If you just want to that's fine, but normally once on CFW there is no need to ever install OFw again.

    Provided you've dumped your eid_root_key in Rebug Toolbox, you should be able to convert from DEX back to CEX, which will allow you to install OFW which is of course retail/consumer (CEX) firmware. I believe this would work, but I'm not 100% as I've only ever converted to DEX (and back again) using REX and as such I've never installed D-REX. Maybe @DeViL303 can clarify this?

    When you convert REX to DEX in the toolbox, then you are on D-REX, no different at all than installing the D-REX PUP. Or when you convert D-REX to CEX , then you are on 100% REX.

    I'm going to slightly edit the thread name to include '(Solved)' just to give others a heads-up. Hope you don't mind. :)

    Edit: and move it to the appropriate section of the forum lol
