Q) What is ‘Rebug 3.41E’?
A) An attempt to build a Debug/Retail PS3 firmware with the full features of both
Q) Does it need to be ‘Jailbroken’
A) Yes. It has it’s own payload. But not to use the ‘Debug Settings’ menu. That is always available.
At the moment it has all ‘Retail PS3′ features running except PSN. So installing Rebug 3.41E will not break anything infact you can play your original PS1 games in JB mode and unlike most Debug/Retail hybrids in the past this has functional BD playback (Same as usual though, not in JB mode)..
As far as the Debug functions go you have two seperate ‘Debug Settings’ menus to choose from (As long as you are in JB mode you can swap between them using file manager without restarting) with most of the options working (None of the really good ones yet). But you now have XMB acces to all those xRegistry.sys switches..
Also at anytime if you decide you don’t like Rebug 3.41E you can install ‘Retail 3.41′ through the XMB without any problems..
Rebug 3.41E is stable. It does not crash randomly or for no reason. It has no bugs that I know of at the moment. It does however need lots more work getting the rest of the debug options up and running.
There are a few things close to going into Rebug 3.41E but would have messed with the stability for now so they will hopefully be in the next release. Like BD playback in JB mode (Crashes randomly at the moment so it was left out) and an app to swap the ‘Debug Settings’ menus..
