    Default 4.46.1 CFW Rebug LITE and 4.46.1CFW Rebug REX noob friendly Installation tutorial

    Disclaimer: Install with caution and follow instructions. No one will be held responsible for any damage caused.
    Note: You need to have a USB stick with a capacity of atleast 512MB.
    Note: This tutorial assumes your using Windows OS, however, you will still be able to use this tutorial on any other OS so long as you find a good MD5 checker that is compatible with your OS.
    Note: Always perform MD5 checks!
    Note: Remove all discs now!
    Note: Disable internet connection!
    Note: Using the usb port closest to the Blu-ray drive is recommend, although not mandatory.
    Note: Removing spoofers is recommended.
    Note: Sony is banning CFW users whom connect to PSN, so at this point it is best to avoid PSN.
    Note: Follow the tutorial that suits you.

    MD5 check utility v2.31 - E5A1A4A431C25A1D8B2428066487FC45


    How to check MD5 check sums - Very important
    Spoiler:
    Start the MD5 check utility.
    Copy the relevant MD5 code and click paste in the program.
    Click on browse and select the file you want to verify.
    It will then start checking.
    Results: "The codes Match" - if it says this, then the files are good
    Note: If it says the codes do not match, then do not use that file!, transfer again and run another MD5 check. If it fails again, re-download the file.


    Step 1 - Preparing USB stick (format)
    Spoiler:
    Connect your USB stick to your computer.
    Go to my computer, right click on removable drive and click on format.
    File system = FAT32
    Allocation unit size 32kilobytes (or whatever is available)
    You can quick format or full format, up to you.
    Then hit format.


    Step 2 - Preparing USB stick (folders)
    Spoiler:
    Create a folder called PS3, within that folder create a folder called UPDATE.
    So it will be like this - USB\PS3\UPDATE\


    Step 3 - Transfer files
    Spoiler:
    MultiMan and any other pkg files you need to install should be copied to the root of your USB. (ie in no folder)
    Copy and paste REBUG_4.46.1_REX_PS3UPDAT.PUP into UPDATE folder.
    Rename REBUG_4.46.1_REX_PS3UPDAT.PUP to PS3UPDAT.PUP
    (USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP)
    Now run MD5 checks, very important! (refer to md5 check & sums above)


    Step 4 - Installing pkg files - latest multiMAN, toggle_QA etc...
    Spoiler:
    From XMB (ps3 menu), scroll over to games section and click on install packages.
    One by one click and install all.
    First install multiMAN ver 04.55.00 BASE and so on.


    Step 5 - Dehashing
    Spoiler:

    Note: Dehashing is for 3.55CFW, it won't work in 4.xx CFWs, don't worry, if you're on a 4.xx CFW you can simply skip it.
    Note: Disable any spoofers, or this won't work.

    Go to Game XMB and if you scroll down you should see Toggle_QA.
    Click on it, your screen will go black and it will reboot into XMB.
    Now go to network settings, don't click into it, just hover or highlight over it.
    Then all at once press the following combo - L1 + L2 + L3 (press left stick) + R1 + R2 + dpad_down
    You should see Edy Viewer, Debug Settings, and Install Package Files if done correctly.
    If you do not see it, run the Toggle_QA program again until you see it.


    Step 6 - Nand/Nor backup (skip if you already have a valid backup) - Tutorial by FeintNightmare
    Spoiler:

    Note: You need to have atleast one PS3 game on your HDD.
    Note: If you do not, you can either FTP a game to it or you can run multiMAN, insert any original PS3 game, hover over the game and press triangle, then click on copy.
    Note: Once you've created that backup, take out the disc and proceed with the tutorial.


    1. Insert a FAT32 formatted USB to the right-side port of your ps3 and run multiman.
    2. After it loads , start file manager/mmOS ( its an option that is there in Multiman)
    (NOTE: shortcut to start multiman's file manager SELECT+START)
    If a file manager is not open, click on PS3 root.
    3.when using file manager , go to to /dev_hdd/GAMES/* any game u have*/
    ( example: /dev_hdd/GAMES/CODBOP2/)
    and open the PS3_DISK.SFB file(or the param.sfo file of the game) by pressing 'X' 2 times on it.

    4. after u open the .SFB file u can see a lot of numbers ,shown in a hex-decimal form,
    as shown in the image
    press SELECT and u will get a LV2 View.

    5. when on LV2 view press start , (that is after we pressed select in step 4.)

    6. you will then get a message " Do u want to export GAMEOS LV2 memory to a file",press no, then it will show a message asking " Do u want to export HV LV1 memory to a file" say no for this as well, and then u will get a 3rd message asking "Do u want to export FLASH memory to a file" say yes to this.and it will start the dumbing process.the dumb will be saved to the root of ur usb.
    7. you can now exit multiman, disconnect the usb from ur ps3 and connect it to your pc,
    and inside the USB u can find a file named 201***FLASH-NOR-FW.3.55.NORBIN (if ur ps3 has NOR) or 201***FLASH-NAND-FW.3.55.NANDBIN( if ur ps3 is having NAND).

    Transfer nand/nor back up to your computer and keep it safe.


    Step 7 - Installing 4.46.1CFW Rebug REX
    Spoiler:
    Make sure there is no disc in BD and that no internet connection is available.
    Plug your USB to your PS3.
    Then go to system update in XMB and from there select mass storage.
    You're done installing


    Step 8 - Setup Rebug REX
    Spoiler:
    In XMB - Go under GAME
    Go into Package Manager >> Install Package Files >> PS3 Hard Disk.
    You should see Rebug Toolbox, click & install it.


    Step 9 - Further recommended setup and final notes
    Spoiler:
    In XMB under GAME, you should be able to see Rebug Toolbox, click on it to start it.
    In Toolbox, under Selector, change System Mode to Rebug.
    It will then reboot your PS3, go back into Toolbox and make sure System Mode is Rebug and XMB Operation is Debug.

    You're all done now.
    I know some of you might want to have alternative settings, that's all up to you.
    I would also recommend doing your research before messing with too many options in Toolbox.

    (USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP)
    Now run MD5 checks, very important! (refer to md5 check & sums above)


    Step 4 - Get into recovery menu
    Spoiler:
    First make sure there is no game or any sort of disc inside the PS3. If there is, it is very important you take it out now!
    Now make sure the PS3 is off.
    Hold down the power button until it shuts down again.
    Let go and hold down the power button again, let go when you hear a double beep.
    You can also have a look at this video on how to get into recovery menu: (video by chickensonsticks)
    Spoiler:

    It will ask you to connect controller via usb cable and pressing the PS button, do that.


    Step 5 - Updating to 3.55CFW KMEAW
    Spoiler:
    Once your in recovery menu, plug your USB stick into the far right port.
    Select System update
    Now the rest is easy, accept everything and just follow on screen instructions.
    You're done installing.
    Now follow 'Currently on any CEX CFW3.55/4.21/4.30CFW (not TB/Cobra)'

    MD5 check utility v2.31 - E5A1A4A431C25A1D8B2428066487FC45


    How to check MD5 check sums - Very important
    Spoiler:
    Start the MD5 check utility.
    Copy the relevant MD5 code and click paste in the program.
    Click on browse and select the file you want to verify.
    It will then start checking.
    Results: "The codes Match" - if it says this, then the files are good
    Note: If it says the codes do not match, then do not use that file!, transfer again and run another MD5 check. If it fails again, re-download the file.


    Step 1 - Preparing USB stick (format)
    Spoiler:
    Connect your USB stick to your computer.
    Go to my computer, right click on removable drive and click on format.
    File system = FAT32
    Allocation unit size 32kilobytes (or whatever is available)
    You can quick format or full format, up to you.
    Then hit format.


    Step 2 - Preparing USB stick (folders)
    Spoiler:
    Create a folder called PS3, within that folder create a folder called UPDATE.
    So it will be like this - USB\PS3\UPDATE\


    Step 3 - Transfer files
    Spoiler:
    MultiMan and any other pkg files you need to install should be copied to the root of your USB. (ie in no folder)
    Copy and paste REBUG_4.46.1_LITE_PS3UPDAT.PUP into UPDATE folder.
    Rename REBUG_4.46.1_LITE_PS3UPDAT.PUP to PS3UPDAT.PUP
    (USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP)
    Now run MD5 checks, very important! (refer to md5 check & sums above)


    Step 4 - Installing pkg files - latest multiMAN, toggle_QA etc...
    Spoiler:
    From XMB (ps3 menu), scroll over to games section and click on install packages.
    One by one click and install all.
    First install multiMAN ver 04.55.00 BASE and so on.


    Step 5 - Dehashing
    Spoiler:

    Note: Dehashing is for 3.55CFW, it won't work in CFW4.xx, don't worry, if you're on CFW4.xx you can simply skip it.
    Note: Disable any spoofers, or this won't work.

    Go to Game XMB and if you scroll down you should see Toggle_QA.
    Click on it, your screen will go black and it will reboot into XMB.
    Now go to network settings, don't click into it, just hover or highlight over it.
    Then all at once press the following combo - L1 + L2 + L3 (press left stick) + R1 + R2 + dpad_down
    You should see Edy Viewer, Debug Settings, and Install Package Files if done correctly.
    If you do not see it, run the Toggle_QA program again until you see it.


    Step 6 - Nand/Nor backup (skip if you already have a valid backup) - Tutorial by FeintNightmare
    Spoiler:

    Note: You need to have atleast one PS3 game on your HDD.
    Note: If you do not, you can either FTP a game to it or you can run multiMAN, insert any original PS3 game, hover over the game and press triangle, then click on copy.
    Note: Once you've created that backup, take out the disc and proceed with the tutorial.


    1. Insert a FAT32 formatted USB to the right-side port of your ps3 and run multiman.
    2. After it loads , start file manager/mmOS ( its an option that is there in Multiman)
    (NOTE: shortcut to start multiman's file manager SELECT+START)
    If a file manager is not open, click on PS3 root.
    3.when using file manager , go to to /dev_hdd/GAMES/* any game u have*/
    ( example: /dev_hdd/GAMES/CODBOP2/)
    and open the PS3_DISK.SFB file(or the param.sfo file of the game) by pressing 'X' 2 times on it.

    4. after u open the .SFB file u can see a lot of numbers ,shown in a hex-decimal form,
    as shown in the image
    press SELECT and u will get a LV2 View.

    5. when on LV2 view press start , (that is after we pressed select in step 4.)

    6. you will then get a message " Do u want to export GAMEOS LV2 memory to a file",press no, then it will show a message asking " Do u want to export HV LV1 memory to a file" say no for this as well, and then u will get a 3rd message asking "Do u want to export FLASH memory to a file" say yes to this.and it will start the dumbing process.the dumb will be saved to the root of ur usb.
    7. you can now exit multiman, disconnect the usb from ur ps3 and connect it to your pc,
    and inside the USB u can find a file named 201***FLASH-NOR-FW.3.55.NORBIN (if ur ps3 has NOR) or 201***FLASH-NAND-FW.3.55.NANDBIN( if ur ps3 is having NAND).

    Transfer nand/nor back up to your computer and keep it safe.


    Step 7 - Installing 4.46.1CFW Rebug LITE
    Spoiler:
    Make sure there is no disc in BD and that no internet connection is available.
    Plug your USB device into the far right USB port.
    Then go to system update in XMB and from there select mass storage.
    Follow on screen instructions.
    You're done installing


    Step 8 - Toolbox (optional)
    Spoiler:
    In XMB - Go under GAME
    Go into Package Manager >> Install Package Files >> PS3 Hard Disk.
    You should see Rebug Toolbox, click & install it.

    You're all done

    Rename 3.55-KMEAW-PS3UPDAT.PUP to PS3UPDAT.PUP
    (USB\PS3\UPDATE\PS3UPDAT.PUP)
    Now run MD5 checks, very important! (refer to md5 check & sums above)


    Step 4 - Get into recovery menu
    Spoiler:
    First make sure there is no game or any sort of disc inside the PS3. If there is, it is very important you take it out now!
    Now make sure the PS3 is off.
    Hold down the power button until it shuts down again.
    Let go and hold down the power button again, let go when you hear a double beep.
    You can also have a look at this video on how to get into recovery menu: (video by chickensonsticks)
    Spoiler:

    It will ask you to connect controller via usb cable and pressing the PS button, do that.


    Step 5 - Updating to 3.55CFW KMEAW
    Spoiler:
    Once your in recovery menu, plug your USB stick into the far right port.
    Select System update
    Now the rest is easy, accept everything and just follow on screen instructions.
    You're done installing.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    Spoiler:

    1. Can I use this on my PS3 that has any OFW above 3.55?
    Spoiler:
    No


    2. Can I downgrade my 3.56+ OFW to 3.55OFW/CFW?
    Spoiler:
    You might be able to downgrade it to 3.55 using a hardware flasher such as Progskeet or E3 but you need to check whether your PS3 is capable of being downgraded to 3.55 or below.
    You can check the info page on
    Code:
    http://www.ps3devwiki.com/wiki/SKU_Models
    Make sure you also check date codes and not just model numbers.


    3. Is 4.xx.x CFW Rebug REX stable?
    Spoiler:
    Yes


    4. I'm on 3.55CFW KMEAW or any other 3.55CFW apart from TB/Cobra/Geohot, what do I do?
    Spoiler:
    Follow the tutorial labeled 'Currently on any CEX CFW3.55/4.21/4.30CFW (not TB/Cobra/Geohot)'


    5. I'm on 4.21CFW Rebug REX or any other 4.21CFW, what do I do?
    Spoiler:
    Follow the tutorial labeled 'Currently on any CEX CFW3.55/4.21/4.30CFW (not TB/Cobra/Geohot)'


    6. I'm on 4.30CFW Rogero v1.xx or v2.00 or any other 4.30CFW, what do I do?
    Spoiler:
    Follow the tutorial labeled 'Currently on any CEX CFW3.55/4.21/4.30CFW (not TB/Cobra/Geohot)'


    7. Are you sure I can go straight from 3.55CFW/4.21CFW/4.30CFW/4.40CFW/4.46CFW to 4.46.1CFW Rebug REX or LITE?
    Spoiler:
    Yes.


    8. Some of your posts are contradictory, what do I do?
    Spoiler:
    At the moment there can be no contradictions but at some point if there are a lot of questions and time passes, certain things can change and my advice may differ then.
    So if any of my posts contradict this tutorial, then this tutorial takes precedence.
    This tutorial is kept up to date, the same can not be done for all posts.


    9. Do I need to dehash?
    Spoiler:
    Dehashing is only needed for downgraded consoles but since people do buy pre-owned consoles or get them as gifts, there can be uncertainty as to whether or not a console has ever been downgraded from 3.56+.
    So to avoid any problems, I've included it in the tutorial for all to do, after all it only takes a minute and whether your console is downgraded or non-downgraded, it won't cause any harm.


    10. Do I really need a nand/nor backup, and if so, why?
    Spoiler:
    This backup is for people to keep for the future.
    For whatever reason, if you somehow manage to brick your console, any time in the future for whatever reason, a nand backup may be needed to recover using a hardware flasher.
    This is solely for people to keep in case they ever need it. If you have a nand backup already, maybe one you created yourself or one that some one created for you, then you can skip the step.
    Perhaps you're familiar with the Wii Scene, if so you'll know pretty much all tutorials have a nand backup step, this is similar to that, as in the backup is not needed for the installation itself but it is always highly recommended to have one incase something ever goes wrong.


    11. Will the content that I currently have get deleted?
    Spoiler:
    No


    12. I'm on 3.55CFW, will my current games work?
    Spoiler:
    Your normal unpatched games should work fine, in some cases you might need to update through multiMAN but they will work fine.
    As for your patched/fixed games, some will work and some won't.
    If a 3.55 fixed game does not work, try deleting game data & then updating the game.
    Then if your game is still not working, you'll need to replace the eboot with the original eboot.
    PSN games will most likely need resigning, check the tutorials section. Beharii's tutorial is a good one to look at.


    13. Will my current apps work?
    Spoiler:
    They will most likely need resigning but keep in mind not all apps work as they should after resigning.
    Popular apps do get updated for the newer cfw.
    You can always check the tutorial section for resigning apps and you can check the forums for a resigned or updated app that works with 4.30cfw.


    14. Do we need to patch/fix any games on 4.46CFW like we do on 3.55CFW?
    Spoiler:
    Games up to 4.46 will definitely work.


    15. Are MD5 checks really necessary?
    Spoiler:
    MD5 checks are to check the integrity of the files.
    It tells you whether or not the file is what it should be.
    Lets say I have a file on my computer that I want to send to you.
    The possible errors that can occur without us knowing are during my upload & your download, aswell as during your transfer to any other devices such as a USB stick.
    So if there were any problems, you'd have a corrupt file without knowing, because there had been no MD5 checks.

    Now lets discuss why MD5 are of great importance when it comes to PS3.
    First of all, if you skipped MD5 on pkg files & they were corrupt, then most likely you'd get errors with the app and it wouldn't function as it is supposed to. The fix in most situation would be a reinstall.
    If you skipped MD5 on the CFW(pup), and it was corrupt, you will brick your PS3.
    MD5 checks do not take long & it is worth doing.

    We all know there are currently two CFWs worth using, that's 4.30 Rogero & Rebug.
    We've had Rogero tutorials but no one seems to have made a Rebug tutorial.
    I was interested in seeing the Rebug REX firmware as I've never used it, so I went to from 4.30CFW Rogero v2.05 to 4.30.2CFW Rebug REX via XMB.
    Over the next few days I'll see if I like it

    In the evening I'll post more mirrors and a FAQ.

    Tutorial updates
    -More links for 4.30.2 added
    -KMEAW links added + MD5 checksum
    -Credits added
    -FAQ added
    -Link to my FTP thread "Transfer games...." added

    I will expand upon the updating to KMEAW at some point today.
    Might post some more mirrors for that too, it's just my upload speed sucks and it takes a while to upload stuff.

    hi GSTAR01, first thank you for the tutorial, but i' m having some trouble updating to 4.30.2 cfw, it gives me an error (80029CCA) when i try to install through the system update, and in the recovery menu it won't update eider(it says it can't find any update file)
    I'm on 4.21 dex, lv2 Kernel: Dex Target type: Dex, should i change the configurations in the rebug toolbox? or should i convert it back to cex?
    i'm new to the scene, and i bought the ps3 as it is, with rebug 4.2.1
    thank you!

    So you're not on 4.21 DEX but on 4.21 Rebug REX in DEX mode?
    If so, go into Toolbox >> under CEX/DEX >> Swap LV2 Kernel.
    After you do that, it should display it as LV2 Kernel: CEX.
    I believe Target type will remain DEX and I think you'll need the CEX dump on a USB stick to rewrite target ID in flash.
    You can probably obtain the dump from the previous owner.

    For the moment swap LV2 kernel & then try updating to 4.30.2 Rebug REX.
    If it doesn't work, then you'll probably need to rewrite target ID using CEX dump.

    So LV2 Kernel remains DEX?
    Contact the previous owner and get the dump, he should have it.
    Rename dump to CEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN (16mb) or CEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN (239mb or 256mb) then transfer onto a FAT32 USB stick.
    Stick it in the far right port on your PS3 and in toolbox rewrite target ID.
    Then Swap LV2 Kernel to CEX.

    You might be able to make a DEX dump & convert it to CEX but I believe you need the EID root key which is obtained using 3.55CFW.
    Considering you're in DEX mode, I'd say it's unlikely that the 999 downgrader will work.
    If the previous owner doesn't have the CEX nand/nor dump, then alternatively ask for the EID key/dump, although you preferably want CEX nand/nor dump to avoid any problems.

    The LV2 Kernel is set to Cex, but the target type is Dex.
    After i get the cex dump, rename it, rewrite target id and update to 4.30.2 rebug, should i convert it back to dex or continuing using cex?
