PACKAGE MANAGER

Package Manager is a replacement for the standard Install Package Files option under Game in the XMB. It allows for the install and deletion of .pkg files from dev_hdd0/packages, dev_usb/packages and the standard Install Package Files locations. In addition to this, your downloaded PSN content ‘bubbles’ will appear under this option instead of cluttering your Game menu with uninstalled content.

USAGE:
Navigate to Game in your XMB and click on Package Manager (It will be where Install Package Files usually is). You will find three options.

PlayStation®Network Content
Manage your downloaded PlayStation®Network Content.

Install Package Files
INSTALL package files from Storage Devices and your PS3.

PS3 Hard Disk (dev_hdd0/packages)
Package Folder (dev_usb/packages)
Standard Package Location (Standard Install Package Files locations)

NOTE: The Install All Packages is only available by pressing the TRIANGLE button when the Standard Package Location option is highlighted because the PS3 will only install ALL packages from the root of a storage device as of the moment.

Delete Package Files
DELETE package files from Storage Devices and your PS3.

PS3 Hard Disk (dev_hdd0/packages)
Package Folder (dev_usb/packages)
Standard Package Location (Standard Install Package Files locations)

DELETING FILES:
1: Highlight the file you would like to delete and press TRIANGLE. The sidebar should appear.
2: Press CROSS on either Unlink or Unlink(Folder) (Both do the same thing for now).

 

REBUG TOOLBOX

Rebug Toolbox is application designed to complete the full function of REBUG REX EDITION firmwares. Besides from performing the CEX/DEX EID0 and LV2 Kernel Swapping it is also an FTP server and is packed with a bunch of other useful tools.

INSTALL:
1: In the PS3 XMB go to Game menu
2: Select Package Manager
3: Select Install Package Files
4: Select PS3 Hard Disk
5: Select REBUG-TOOLBOX-02.xx.xx.pkg

 

Cobra 7.03

 

What is Cobra 7.XX?
Cobra 6.0 and lower was CobraUSB and needed a USB dongle to use its unique features,. This was the first product by the Cobra Team who is now behind the CobraODE. After the Cobra Team launched the first ODE device, Community News Writer STLcardsWS inquired about the future of the CobraUSB device as it seemed to be shelved (unofficially at the time). STLcardsWS according to the Cobra Team Representative Magneto asked if the device could be made open source for the community, since the team had all but moved onto ODE products. That is when Team Cobra gave in and threw a bone to the PS3 Homebrew Community. Shortly, after that time is when we seen the first official source code release of CobraUSB (link of this story). While this proved to be a huge advancement in the PS3 development community it however was a rough release as it contained all the USB security source code also. While developer’s like u$er was able to use parts and makes sense of some of the functions (which helped create PRX Loader, the first plugin system for the PS3)., most developer struggled with the source as it had alot of unnecessary parts included to protect the USB device when the Cobra Devs wanted to keep this system closed sourced. .

Several weeks later, the Lead CobraUSB developer (who was not aware of the first release when it happened) released the first Dongle-Less Cobra CFW using Rogero’s 4.46 CFW as a base. The developer also updated Cobra 6.0 to Cobra 7.0 with new features and cleaned the source removing all the security garbage (link to this story). Thus making it a complete release with full instructions and details for scene developers. Since that time we have seen its evolve and added to many CFW’s. Below you can view some of the features that are built into Cobra System with some additional explanations.

Cobra 7.03 PS2 Features (4.65 Cobra)

PlayStation 2 on NON-BC Consoles
Software (SW) Emulation:Support for PS2 ISOs in non BC consoles was removed in Cobra 4.30 (usb), due tops2_softemu missing. It has been re-enabled now by hacking of ps2_netemu. You can use it in the same way as before, just load an ISO and launch from disc icon, Cobra core takes care of rest. No need for encrypted isos, isos patched with limg sectors, etc. Just your normal PS2 isos dumped from discs. However, there is no support for optical discs in ps2_netemu.Note 1: Don’t forget to set the memory cards in XMB, in the old memory card utility for PS/PS2, as ps2_netemu won’t let you assign them in game.Note 2: Please use PS2 ISO / Classic Launcher (non-BC only for wireless sync issue) method to fix the issue with wireless pad sync issue. RAP activation via reactPSN is required
PlayStation 2 on BC Consoles
Hardware (HW) Emulation:
PS3 Models: CECHA, CECHB, CECHC and CECHE 
Backwards Compatible (BC) Consoles will still use their respetive emulators(ps2_emu, ps2_gxemu), which have much better compatibility and also support optical discs, original or backup.

 

**IMPORTANT INFORMATION**

COBRA MODE

COBRA mode / webMAN currently disabled by default, if you want to use Cobra 7.03 features, please enable Cobra mode via REBUG TOOLBOX 2.02.02.  Previous Cobra CFW users may experience issues with some games due to improved cobra payload that has updated permission patch, in this case. ***Remove old game data and re-install the game, possibly save game data as well if you run into weird issues. Previous Cobra payload still had its old patches that were used for USB Dongle and mmCM, but not anymore, and this fixes the issue with all non-working games with Cobra. non-Cobra users will not have this problem since their data were not corrupted by old cobra payload.

PS2 ISO / Classic Launcher
(non-BC only for wireless sync issue)

With Cobra core, You can play PS2 ISO rips on NON-Backward compatible PS3, however, there has been an annoying wireless sync issue while playing ps2 games, so we designed this work around to fix the issue with wireless pad sync by following method.

Couple things are required

– multiMAN for PS2 ISO to Classic conversion, not needed if you use PC method

– RAP activation for PS2 Launcher, [Link available for download on the bottom]

PS2 2P0001-PS2U10000_00-0000111122223333.zip

– PS2 Launcher or PS2 Classic Place holder [they both do the same function]

1.Install placeholder and activate the rap file for classic via reactPSN
2. Go to multiman normal mode and click on iso
3. Convert ISO to Classic [ISO.BIN.ENC]
4. Use mm filemanager [mmOS] , look for this path “/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/<gamename>/”
5. Copy or Move ISO.BIN.ENC to “/dev_hdd0/game/PS2U1000/USRDIR/”

6. Create a flag file named “classic_ps2” via mmOS [file manager from multiMAN] or, go to XMB and use webMAN “MOD”‘s toggle; press SELECT+L2+/\
7. Run the game from npdrm legit/placeholder(depending on the option you chose) and maintain one stable sync, this is important to write proper sync data in registry.
8. You can safely close the game, and start mounting PS2 ISO via webMAN

(*Back up registry via TOOLBOX is recommended in case of potential sync issue problem occurs, if the sync issue happens in the future, you can restore your sync data via registry restoration)

QA SUPPORT

QA is supported in all REBUG FIRMWARE. It is good practice to enable QA for a smoother experience on any CFW not just REBUG.

 

OTHEROS++ SUPPORT

OtherOS++ is supported by all REBUG REX EDITIONS and will detect your existing OtherOS HDD partition.

However none of the REBUG REX EDITIONS have emer_init.self patched (create smaller GameOS partition). We are working on a solution to this from GameOS.

In the meantime if you do want to create an OtherOS partition you have two options:

1: Use a 3.55 firmware that already has emer_init.self patched to the size you want.
2: Patch REBUG 3.55.x REX EDITION in PS3MFW Builder

If you choose option 2 we highly recommend that you ONLY patch emer_init.self. Also the resulting PUP will only be able to be installed on 3.55 firmware as the spkg_hdr will be mismatched.

HOW TO Install & Uninstall REBUG

INSTALL:
From XMB install REBUG 4.21.x AND HIGHER over any 3.55 OFW/CFW/MFW or the same or lower firmware version CFW with spkg sig check patched or any firmware version CFW with spkg sig check patched and QA enabled.

UNINSTALL:
From XMB REBUG 4.21.x AND HIGHER can be uninstalled with the same or higher firmware version OFW/CFW/MFW or with REBUG 3.55.x REX EDITION on a QA enabled PS3 or with the ‘999’ DOWNGRADER if QA was NOT enabled.

 Known Bug(s)

*PS2 Pad Sync is currently fixed with  PS2 Launcher work around, however small amount of users may have sync issues,

in this case, Please use toggle ps2 emulation via Standalone Rebug toolbox pkg with original PS2 emulator files.

Download available via link below [REBUG TOOLBOX 2.02.02_PS2]

In this case, PS2 ISO compatibility is disabled, due to usage of the original PS2 emu files without Cobra payload.

*TMAPI is supported on both Cobra / non-Cobra mode, however, ProDG is not fully functional while on Cobra mode,

Game modding is supported while on Cobra mode, but for debugging purpose, disabling Cobra is recommended for stability.
