no worries at all mate, it is nice to help out people like you (and others) who give so much to a great forum like this. I hope you have better luck with multiman than me as i cant get it to boot any backups so i am using iris manager at the min.
The above picture of an Cobra ODE getting finalized in-place on a 4K Super-Slim model is taken from page 44 of this huge 46 page manual that is very well written and complete and it shows you how to install the Cobra ODE correctly in all the PlayStation 3 models from original PHAT models to the very latest 4K model.
Finally, from Dracothic: Well I finaly Have the Cobra ODE working for the most part. The manager.iso is spoofed by the manufacturer as God of war III so when you start the manager the ps3 will attempt to download the 1.03 update for the game however no message to this effect will show on the screen.
Workaround 1 - Disable Internet connection - With the internet disconnected the manager will not try to download the update from psn and all should work fine of course with no internet connection
Workaround 2 - Cancel the Update - Even though you cannot see the msg on the screen pressing the O button a few times should cancel the update and the manager will load.
If you are getting a 8002... error when loading the manager simply go into game data and delete the God of War III 1.03 Update and reload the manager and the error should be gone.
Hopefully we shall see an update from the Cobra team soon that fixes the issue.
