PS3: Official Rebug 4.78.2-REX/D-REX with COBRA 7.3 released

Team REBUG is back with another release of their REBUG CFW for PS3. After we’ve seen Developer Joonie announcing that Cobra 7.3 with fixed PS2 sync issue and more was in the works and Developer Habib adding COBRA 7.3 to his HABIB CFW it was just a matter of time until Team Rebug would update their REBUG CFW with official COBRA 7.3 support. So here it is REBUG 4.78.2-REX/D-REX with COBRA 7.3. It also adds XMBM+ standalone pkg support for both DEBUG and RETAIL Modes of the XMB and fixes the Issue with System Deactivation that has been existing since REBUG 4.75.3 because of a changed act.dat deletion.psx-sceneRebug

Here is the full Changelog:

COBRA 7.3 Support added
(PS2 Launcher is NO LONGER needed to have wireless connectivity with DS3, Huge thanks to our beloved developer Habib and mysis)
XMBM+ support for for both XMB operation Mode [Debug/Retail] added
(XMB Manager Plus developed by Team XMBM now “FULLY” supported via standalone pkgs.)
More info regarding XMBM+ 

webMAN MOD 1.43.27 
(It has many bug fixes and improved features!)

The issue with System Deactivation is fixed
(This issue was introduced since REBUG 4.75.3 due to changed act.dat deletion patch, now it’s fixed!)

Russian language support added for Package Manager
(Thanks to Alex Lightra1n for Translation!)

For a full List of REBUGs Features please have a look at the original Blog Post.

This CFW is only for PS3 Models up to 2,5k. Newer Slim Models and Super Slim are NOT Supported! And of course, you will need to have a CFW already installed or be on 3.55 to install this CFW!

The Download link for the CFW can be found on the bottom of the Post on as always 🙂
If you want to install REBUG on a CEX PS System you will need the REX version. If you want to install REBUG on a DEX PS3 System you will need the D-REX version.

Installation method is the same as any other CFW/MFW/OFW.
Just make a Folder called PS3 on the root of your USB and in that folder make a folder called UPDATE. Just copy the REBUG_4.78.2_REX_e98b19ed459295158dc607c54f6be9b7_PS3UPDAT.PUP or REBUG_4.78.2_D-REX_e8e716782ff026865db65e566eed96ea_PS3UPDAT.PUP in there and rename it to PS3UPDAT.PUP. Then just plug your USB into your PS3 and update via USB.
After installation, the Webman, Cobra mode and XMB CFW Settings will be disabled. You will have to activate it by using these Steps:
 1. Go to the Package installer and install the 02.02.09 Rebug Toolbox which is copied to your HDD after installing Rebug 4.78.1
 2. Install Rebug Toolbox 02.02.09 and launch it.
 3. If you want Cobra, Webman and XMB CFW Settings you need to enable all three settings. After that, just exit and your PS3 will restart.
You now have Webman, Cobra and XMB CFW Settings enabled :)

If any of you have access to upcoming DEX Firmware please get in contact with Team REBUG.
If they can get multiple sources for DEX they can release faster.

I’m rather surprised that Sony didn’t release a new OFW right after Team REBUG released their 4.78.1 D-REX/REX REBUG CFW but like this we can enjoy having the latest FW and all of REBUGs features for a bit longer :). I’m also pretty happy that the PS2 Controller Sync Issue is fixed so fire up your PS3s and play some good old PS2 Games on it 😀

The eagerly anticipated Suyu emulator (aka Yuzu) has been the talk of the town since …


  1. If I buy a ps3 with an old update of D-REX. Would it let me install the new D-REX?

  2. Yea you can go from any D-REX aka DEX CFW to a higher one.

  3. Does the 3.55 ps3 need to be jailbroken to get dex?

    • Nope. You can just install the normal Rebug Rex over it and then change to DEX, Don’t install the D-Rex CFW directly because your Ps3 is still a CEX Console and needs to be “converted” into a DEX PS3 first

  4. Can super slim be jailbreak?
