    The problem with rebug is that they “release” binaries, not source codes or patches. I would prefer if we provide patches and exploits not so that people can “install” stuff, but that they can tinker with it themselves and improve the work. They are just yet another closed society, for no reason. If they can release binaries, they can release information too.

      PS: When they do. Even for the PS3, then they get my donations.

      They do release things for free, though. No dongles or any of that DRM BS. I hear you on the closed source, but I would think they’d get a bunch of flack from users “tinkering” and ultimately bricking their consoles, blaming Rebug. Closed source also prevents people from confusing other or claiming they are official rebug releases.

      A lot of these types of groups release sources when they are finished with the project.

        I am convinced that you can make arguments that just about anything is somehow legitimate 🙂 I can see the issues you named, though I think they are minor and not actually worth the argument.

        It’s a bit like MS, protecting you from the bad people by sending your downloads to their servers for “checking” them against viruses (smart screen) a giant cluster *** of a privacy invasion and literally almost as bad as anybody breaking into your PC (esp. in the age of snowden) … Or Apple along the same lines of shady consumer-friendly-backdoors and cloud uploads.

        But to reply to the points you made:
        – I could fake and redistribute a “rebug” without issue. I don’t even need their code. I just need to give you an update 😉 What prevents it, is their domain (official channel) 🙂
        – People who tinker, brick sometimes. If you try it, it’s your chance. Add a red blinking warning (1996!), make it some in-the-back page nobody visits (not the fancy release page) or a git repo. Devs care, users don’t.
        – They also use a ton of other peoples open work to make their product better – so not giving back at the same time seems like the wrong attitude.
        – Releasing after the fact is fine (again I will donate) but the value and my interest decreases over time – not because it’s old, but because other people move on, so I got no others to do neat stuff with. I will backlog it, and never get to it. Meanwhile I could have improved it if I had been able to – and learned and had some fun … 🙁
        – Also, a release after the fact is not as easy to grasp. If you had been there when it was created, you would have understood it better – because you can see the steps, trails, trials and errors 🙂 Look at the swift repo – you can literally see a language being created 🙂

        So, while I like their work, I would hope, that they just simply work openly. Nobody will steal their thunder, and the other issues, well as said I don’t buy them 🙂

    REBUG is awesome, its been the most stable CFW provider on PS3. I am sure they will do great on PS4 as well. If anyone from REBUG is reading this, no matter if you can ”hack PS4” or not, thanks a bunch for your past work guys.

  25. Kosgoslav says:

    But the real question is, how we play the games that are online only? For now are few games, but maybe in the future there will be more of them.
