    itskamel's Dummy_BDEMU tutorial for REBUG REX


    This is for people who have a broken blu ray drive but their logic board is still working and are having issues playing some backups. This is only available for use on REBUG REX firmwares 3.55.3 and 4.21.

    Requirements

    1. Pc and a PS3
    2. USB stick (512MB minimum)
    3. Disc Image Generator Software (ps3gen)
    4. Playstation3.iso Dummy BDEMU image
    5. REBUG (REX) CFW 4.21 or REBUG (REX) 3.55.3 operating in DEX mode with DEX lv2_kernel (FULL DEX MODE)


    Step 1.

    Download this and extract it to your desktop

    http://www.sendspace.com/file/gvywpa

    Step 2.

    Connect a USB HDD to your PC to be used for BDEMU

    Step 3.

    On your PC run ps3gen, then click the "show" button in the top right hand corner. Next click "Select File", then locate the "PLAYSTATION3.iso" that you extracted to your desktop earlier. Next click "Save / Emu" button". Then select "Write image to BD EMULATOR HDD". After that you will select your BDEMU HDD, lastly you will pick a slot from the list and click "Write Image".

    Step 4.

    Now moving on to the REBUG firmware, you will need to install the "REBUG TOOLBOX" (this was also in the rar file that you extracted to your desktop.

    install it by putting it on the root of a usb stick and via install pkg files "standard location".

    Step 5.

    Open "REBUG TOOLBOX" and choose the following settings.

    "SELECTOR"

    REBUG MODE / DEBUG XMB / DEBUG MENU

    "DEX / CEX"

    Flash your DEX EID0 NOR/NAND file (DEX-FLASH.EID0.NORBIN or DEX-FLASH.EID0.NANDBIN file on /dev_usb000 stick)

    Now hold down circle to quit the toolbox and restart the PS3

    Step 6.

    Go to debug settings in the xmb and choose the following.

    Blu-Ray Disc Access to BD Emulator (USB)

    Next turn off the ps3.

    Step 7.

    Connect the BDEMU HDD drive/ stick to the far right port on the ps3 (the one closest to the blu ray player), and then turn on your PS3.

    Now you should see "PLAYSTATION3" Game Disc mounted in the XMB game column.

    Step 8.

    Install multiman 4.10.00 via pkg manager (this again was one of the files you extracted earlier).

    Step 9.

    Start up multiman 4.10.00 from the xmb and then load a game from your internal or external HDD (connected to another port)

    DO NOT UNPLUG THE BDEMU USB DRIVE!

    Step 10.

    Start your game from the Disc Icon in the XMB

    Step 11.

    Use the like button if this helped. 3rd tut in 3 days. phew.


    andbey0nd as you requested, hopefully this will help some people. Although it is almost everything you said word for word in your release notes. :p

    So, I successfully changed the kernel to DEX in REX and I formatted my usb stick using the bdemu format utility, but I can't write the image included in the package. I keep getting an error:

    ----------
    Parameters
    ----------
    [Convert]
    Application Type = Emu Image (Plain)
    Input = (Image File) K:\downloads\multiMAN ver 04.10.00 BASE CEX (20121104)\DUMMY_BDEMU\DUMMY_BDEMU.emu
    Output = (BD Emu HDD) \\.\PhysicalDrive8:Image0

    2012-11-04 10:07:47 [Error] Write error in LSN 1535(000005FF).
    2012-11-04 10:07:47 [Info] -- Convert Process Finished. ret=00000005
    2012-11-04 10:07:47 [Error] Process finished with error. err_no=00000005

    EDIT: Think I have it, you need to format the USB on the PS3?

    Yup, it worked. You need to format the drive with the ps3 bdemu format utility

    Wanna know something really funny? Between switching back and forth between cex and dex and adding the bdemu option (using the same usb key for all). One time, after I switched to DEX, I formatted my usb key on the PS3 using the full format option instead of the quick and carried on with mounting the iso on the pc. Decided to go back to CEX to test something and did a quick format on the pc and copied my nand images over (this should have erased the bdemu).

    Well I switched back to DEX after my test and guess what? BDemu is still there--even after formatting the usb on my pc. So the bdemu survives a quick format on the pc......

    Dummy question, is there any chance of (maybe one day) this dummy BD emu could work in CEX side??

    Why cant this be used on CEX ??

    Sorry for the noob questions but would be nice having this working on CEX for those who have broken BD.
