Team REBUG - Brings PSN back for everyone to enjoy!
This will be a day (May 30th, 2012) to remember forever within the crazy PS3 'scene' world!
Last year, PSN was just being restored by Sony themselves on this day after the big 'hacks' had happened earlier in April 2011, that forced PSN offline for everyone!
But PSN has been offline even longer for Sony Playstation Jailbreak users whom have been stuck with using v3.55 CFW!
Well no longer, thanks to the non-stop hard work by TRUE 'scene' developers called 'TEAM REBUG', they have been able to finally restore PSN access to PS3 systems running CFW, with just a simple PKG and special new form of their 'spoofer' that brings into play all the correct 'key' info that is found within the current legit Sony v4.11 firmware and make it work amazing enough on Sony PS3 consoles that are still running the very outdated CFW v3.55
Now we all know this is not going to last long, maybe a week or two, so its basically being released as a short-term GIFT to all to enjoy (no complaints when its over!), to show to the world there is still a real 'scene' and its very much hard at work, and more is possible around the corner in the near future, it will just take more time, but once a door has been opened and you been able to peek inside and see all the riches it offers, it can never truly be closed by anyone, just some more roadblocks put in place and time has to be on your side and you will be able at some point to again explore behind the previously opened doorway.
***** THIS ALLOWS PSN ACCESS *** USE AT YOUR OWN RISK *****
PART 1/2 --> PSN v4.11 Spoofer - By Team REBUG <--- This release is for people that are NOT using REBUG firmware!
Thought we would give everyone a few days of PSN ACCESS with 4.11 Version Spoofer 2.2 for 3.55 ONLY. It is has reActPSN 2.0 compatibility for both your normal and spoofed vsh.self. The app backs up your current files before activating the spoof, then auto reboots.
Press L1+CROSS to INSTALL 4.11 Version Spoof files to your PS3 ACTIVATE/DEACTIVATE:
Press L1+CROSS to ACTIVATE/DEACTIVATE (System will reboot) UNINSTALL:
Press L1+CIRCLE to UNINSTALL (this will deactivate the spoofer, remove the spoof files from dev_flash and reboot if needed)
NOTE: Please do not email us about game compatibility. Some may just require a simple PARAM.SFO to get past the latest game update, others may not work at all because the game NEEDS the newer files. Also your PS3 will need to be restarted to use reActPSN 2.0 if you HAVE INSTALLED but NOT ACTIVATED the Version Spoofer.

PART 2/2 --> Rebug Update Package 0.7 (3.55.2) <-- This release is for those running REBUG firmwares!
It has been a while between drinks but that doesn’t mean we’ve been doing nothing so without any fanfare here is Rebug Update Package 0.7(3.55.2). This will update REBUG’s version spoof files to 4.11 and enable reActPSN 2.0 compatibility. As usual all previous fixes and updates are included.
Oh.. Did we mention we got you PSN ACCESS back…. Dont hold your breath hoping it lasts though!!!
UPDATER WILL PERFORM THE FOLLOWING TASKS Update the Rebug Selector package to Rebug Selector 1.5.1 and 1.6.1
Update the current version spoof files to 4.11 with PSN access
Add reActPSN 2.0 compatibility
INSTALL 1: Install Rebug_Update_Package.pkg file from XMB 2: Run Rebug Update Package from the [Games] menu 3: Follow the on screen prompts 4: PS3 will reboot if needed when finished
NOTE: Once the PS3 has rebooted you can delete Rebug Update Package from your XMB as it is not needed.
NOTE: Rebug Selector 1.5.1 and 1.6.1 are identical in their function but for some reason on random PS3 Rebug Selector 1.5.1 (Which we consider to be the more user-friendly) freezes. We have included them both just incase.
NOTE: Please do not email us about game compatibility. Some may just require a simple PARAM.SFO edit to get past the latest game update, others may not work at all because the game NEEDS the newer files.
Remember also these releases are NOT perfect, for one it runs on v3.55 and PSN is on v4.11, there will be some games that need UPDATEs installed to connect, without those PATCHs you might get errors or time-out after login to PSN, but there is ALOT of PSN access that does work, you just need to play around and experience on your own free will and see what works, and if you so wish share with other forums users what works and does not, and maybe this release will PUSH other sleeping developers to get off their back and improve on it, of course Sony will also be fast on track to find a way to block it, so just enjoy this GIFT while it lasts and don't forgot whom are truly working for you and the 'scene'.
Now this thread is only to 'give thanks' and general open chatter on the PROs and CONs on these releases, for full official support like problems installing them please check out 'Team REBUG' official release threads linked below.
NOTE #1: It does not work for users with the Cobra CFW firmware installed, due to the way the dongle does internal security checks.
NOTE #2: For it to work on 'True Blue' you need to downgrade your dongle to v2.51 and make sure you running v2 of their CFW
NOTE #3: If you run any problems, remember to try a 'clean' CFW installed, with no reACTPSN or other spoofers or mods added!
NOTE #4: DON'T ACTIVATE/DEACTIVATE your PS3 on PSN to much in ONE DAY or Sony will LOCK you out for a WEEK :sad:
