    most features would be rebug rex 4.84, but most up to date and soon to have lots of features is evilnat 4.87.

    btw, you can see the progress on evilnat and cobra 8.30 on psx-place. he and I are friends and used to joke about stalking my man crush on that site bitsbubba using a van outside his house. :P I loved bits.

    I use the ultimate tool box from devil 303, why should the evilnat 4.87 soon have the most features? Incidentally, in the toolbox there is a Rebug Rex 4.84 Cobra 8.2 unofficially from devil303

    I might switch to it once that's done as well. I'm still on rebug 4.84 rex.

    Okay, maybe I wanted to switch again. I hardly ever use it online anyway.

    I think the qa toggle thing is part of cobra 8.30, so unless you're using that, you'll probably need the Habib toggler or rebug toolbox. I always use update debug to install updates, and it should work for anything higher than 3.55. lower than that, you have to use the recovery mode sometimes (it depends on the system). I don't know why, but someone else was trying to downgrade to 2.something and couldn't via the xmb, even with update debug.

    psdevwiki mentions updating through the recovery menu with lower firmware, which worked for him.

    cex or rex if on cex. you can only downgrade to dex if already on dex. dex isn't needed by most people unless you use rtm (real time modding) to make cheat stuff or something.

    I think cfw must also have the spkg signature patch to allow downgrading, so it's not just qa. most cfw should have it though, if not all.

    Spoofing is not so recommended?

    not really much anymore. you could do it with sen enabler, also made by evilnat. I recommend you do update debug though when installing firmware. I have a tutorial on it in my ps3 tutorials. it will make it very easy. you can install up to 20 updates to the internal hdd.

    I've been on ferrox before, but I'm mostly on rebug. I only went to ferrox, when the person I bought the console from had screwed a lot of things up. he had sp int for the network environment for example, when it needs to be np or you won't be able to sign in.

    fyi, sp int is the developer version of psn for developers only; np is retail. I'm not sure if we could ever sign in to sp int. maybe we could at one time. it was his backup system, so it probably hadn't been used in years. I fixed everything with it, so now it's my cfw system.

    So I stayed on Evilnat 4.87.2 because it's enough for me, it's the latest Cex.
