Condorstrike from http://tortuga-cove.com/ps3/1189-exclusive-two-great-forces-collidemultiman-and-cobra believes deank is not working for the Cobra USB Team and has stated the following on the IRC logs below discussing it:
- mmCM 03.00.00 (3108 PS3 Covers, 2020 PS2 Covers) (showTIME, ps3SERV)
- PS3SERV PC app: To be used with mmCM file manager /net_host# network folders.
- SHOWTIME PLAYER: Included as SHOWTIME.SELF in mmCM USRDIR/sys folder to enable playback of video files
- BROWSER.SELF: Standalone WWW/FTP application
"We don't have confirmation on that, truth be told... we haven't spoken to Dean in a while, he did tell me a while back that he was going away for a while.
So from my understanding as far as I know, this is Team Cobra's app using Multiman's open source project... so for now, I'd say it's not Dean."
Update: The man himself deank has now made an official statement on the merging of multiMAN and Cobra.
Also, Team Cobra have released a quick update to mmCM to fix a minor bug that was present in mounting PSP ISOs without a disc in the drive. mmCM v03.00.01 update is available now ONLINE ONLY to Cobra USB users via the intergrated update system.
[Abkarino] deank had joind cobra team?
[eussNL] Cobra ~=~ TrueBlue
[eussNL] so if it supports the replaced sub_28fe30 and new section 0x80000000007f0000 that Cobra uses, it means Trueblue support is around the corner...
