Rebug Selector is a tool for switching XMB and menus. When you run the tool you will see displayed what MODE, XMB and DEBUG MENU you are using. You will also see that AUTO REBOOT is set to OFF - FAST MENU SWITCHING ACTIVE, which means when you choose an option from DEBUG MENU SELECT the PS3 will exit back to the XMB automaticly speeding up the menu switching process. As soon as you choose an option from either MODE SELECT or XMB SELECT the AUTO REBOOT will set to ON - SYSTEM WILL REBOOT ON EXIT and the user must manually exit the tool using the 'ingame XMB' once they are satisfied with their selections. This is so the vsh.self changes can take effect.
Switches between NORMAL and REBUG mode
NORMAL mode is the default mode after installing Rebug. It uses the DEBUG XMB and allows switching between the two different ★ Debug Settings menus.
NOTE: NORMAL mode MUST be set if you wish to reinstall official firmware through the XMB.
REBUG mode sets the PS3 to the latest available version spoof (updatable in the future) and allows swapping between RETAIL and DEBUG XMB in addition to switching between the two different ★ Debug Settings menus.
Press L1+CROSS to set: [NORMAL MODE]
Press L1+CIRCLE to set: [REBUG MODE]
This option only works in REBUG mode and lets you select either the RETAIL or DEBUG XMB.
Press R1+CROSS to use: [RETAIL XMB]
Press R1+CIRCLE to use: [DEBUG XMB]
DEBUG MENU SELECT:
Gives you the choice of the ★ Debug Settings menu from retail (CEX) or debug (DEX) firmware.
Press R2+CROSS to use: [DEBUG SETTINGS: MENU 1] (CEX)
Press R2+CIRCLE to use: [DEBUG SETTINGS: MENU 2] (DEX)
CREATE PACKAGE FOLDER ON PS3:
For use with Package Manager. This option will exit automaticly if AUTO REBOOT is set to off.
Press SELECT to create [dev_hdd0/packages]
NOTE: No matter what XMB or DEBUG MENU you are using, the debug options you have running will remain active.
EXTRA INFO: Rebug Selector DOES NOT copy any files to dev_flash when performing it's tasks, instead it renames (Much safer and much much faster). All the files are already installed on dev_flash and the tool has more than a dozen checks to make sure nothing goes wrong, including a check to see if it is being used on Rebug firmware. Trying to run Rebug Selector on firmware other than Rebug will cause the tool to auto exit before the user gets to make a choice or see anything on the screen at all for that matter.
