Hey guys, i see a lot of ppl asking on how to debug games like UC2, MGS Zero and other games who will give you black screen if you run it on DEX, this method is old and i have been using it since rebug 4.46, so let's begin to explain this.

  1. You have to be on Rebug DEX firmware, you can't do this on any other CFW!
  2. Leave all the debug option as default:
  • Release Check Mode > Development Mode
  • Boot Mode > System Software Mode
  • Network Settings for Debug > Single Setting
  1. Go to Rebug toolbox and set:
  • System Mode > REBUG
  • XMB Operation Mode > Retail
  1. Restart PS3 and restore your CID like always and start the game.
[WARNING="Warning!"]You have to disable CCAPI and cobra if they are enabled, to avoid any possible brick or infinite loop at system start.[/WARNING]


Happy modding. :p

Everytime i go to the game and add target to the target manager i instantly get your ps3 cannot run correctly please click PS button to restart ps3, its not a loop but it crashes my ps3. So i can't use tmapi on these black screen games?

EDIT: netcheat keeps crashing after "successfully" attaching

Some games have anti-debugging mechanism simply your PS3 will crash and start in safe mode, but there's nothing to worry about just click PS button and forgot about that game =(

netcheat issue might be a bug in the version you are using try to use another version.

So applying this will allow you to use prodg debugger on those type of games?
Yeah it should work on most games.

Different games handle debug settings differently. They usually get stuck trying to load debug stuff like debug save/load functions and debug trophy crap. Then there's games made that the creators created their own debugging tools for and if you start them without having the tools on and ready on your PC, they won't load. Then there's ones that probably leave stuff in place just for the hell of it to cause us problems.

Rebug mode on, other stuff off, don't connect to your PS3 with Target Manager or anything, start the game, and when you are at a point where you want to find a code, connect and find it quick because it triggers debug stuff and you'll likely lose save/load/trophy/whatever else functions and the game might crash somewhere easily.
