To quote: Hey all! I present you my CFW 4.53:

1.) made out of 4.53 ofw
2.) have install package files and app_home
3.) have reactpsn compatibility
4.) patched all coreos ecdsa check
5.) patched lv2 to add peek/poke supoort
6.) patched lv1 to disable lv2 protection
7.) patched lv1 to add peek/ poke support
8.) it can run games signed with keys upto 4.53
9.) can be updated over any cfw
10.) can be updated over 3.55 ofw
11.) added no bt/bd patches
12.) rsod bypass
13.) reactpsn offline patch added
14.) better system stability
15.) psp remaster support added
16.) qa flag enabled by default if ps3 was qa on 3.55
17.) in game screenshot enabled
18.) anti-protection for copy-caters!

Anti-protection:

I edited lv0.elf a little. you'll find my signature on offset 8a5b0 also a folder named habib will be present on dev_flash .pkg files can be read from that folder too.. if any of these features are found in any other cfw its a copy of mine!

Iris 2.62:

Made from the last Open Source Version of Iris Manager which is version 2.60B.

Changes:

1. Payload 4.53 added
2. Payload 450 dex added (not tested!)

Control Fan Utility v2.02:

Hey everyone! This version adds support to the following CFWs:

1.) 4.50 DEX (NOT TESTED)
2.) 4.53 CEX

Update: I forgot to include patched vsh which caused no in-game screenshot, no reactpsn, and some unsigned apps throwing message of error.. its recommended to update:

Now I present you db ofw 4.53:

1.) 2 ecdsa patched to allow installation of CFW over DB OFW of mine

4.53 Downgrade Patches (Rogero):

Here are the 4.53 patches needed for downgrading firmware with a Hardware Flasher and Rogero's PS3 Flash Auto Patcher.

  • For 4.53 OFW downgrading

Update 2: Habib / Cobra 4.53 v1.00 CFW is also released now (via tortuga-cove.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=31981#p31981), with details below.

To quote: PRX loading at startup, iso mounting, ntfs support are working but however i didn't test ps2 as i don't have bc consoles and didn't patch for ps3 slim as ps2 classic and cobra uses same ps2_netemu.

Known bugs:

1. psp of cobra gives black screen but remasters work (might be addressed in future)
2. mmcm (not iris) gives black screen if controller not connected (most likely mm issue as iris loads without a prob)

NOTE:

1. ps2 isos for slim is ps2 classic as cobra and ps2 classic uses same ps2_netemu
2. mmcm shows fw version 4.46 for unknown reason

ALSO: i got no bc console to test ps2 so pls do test and if any issue, i'll try to resolve.

WARNING: DONT TRY TO SPOOF!

All the other patches of a cfw is included.

THANKS:

1. kokotonix for trying to help
2. user for helping me in clarifying some things up (rtoc)
3. deank for his mm
4. naehwert
5. failoverflow
6. all other devs

TO OTHER DEVS: stage0 base needs updating and stage1 flash_mount_446.S.flash mount uses ppc 64 bit instructions found in lv2_kernel and in lv2_dump,if you do not do this or the system cant allocate stage2 then it will kick you in recovery mode.

TO PREVENT COPY-CATERS: signatures on offset 10108 of lv0.elf

WHAT I HEARD: mmcm can work without connecting controller to ps3 by changing its id (BLES80608) TO ANYTHING ELSE. THIS COBRA PORT IS DONE FIRST TIME BY ME, SO I MAY PROVIDE UPDATES OVER TIME.

CHANGELOG:

1. disabled block of peek by cobra which cause black screen if controller not connected through usb (Thanks Deank for your idea )

HABIB COBRA 4.53 V1.02.PUP CHANGELOG:

1. Fixed recovery mode hang.if anyone is stuck in recovery,pls follow these

Instructions:

  • Install a different hdd
  • Follow instructions
  • Install my CFW (the new version of 4.53 cobra or search for 4.46 V1.03A of Cobra)

2. Fixed PS2 bug ONLY on BC Consoles (not tested as i don't have bc console.if it still doesn't work, i need a good tester with bc console)

HABIB COBRA 4.53 V1.03.PUP CHANGELOG:

1. PSP support fixed
2. Restored original ps2 emus. you can use ps2 classic as compatibility is same for cobra and ps2classic for ps3 slim. i can't fix ps2 issue of bc consoles as i don't have any, so compatibility between cobra and ps2classic on bc ps3 will vary...

v1.05 MD5: 66DD52844C559DBC513BA5B8CE4E9C65
v1.05a MD5: 0C0B4AE29774CF489BC3C9F592D7CC95

To quote: Changelog 1.05:

1. PS2 for semi-bc PS3 working as per user by using this method:

1 - Start PS3 with the controller via usb.
2 - Launch PS2 ISO.
3 - The game starts and the controller loses the sync but i'm able to resync it, although its been said its buggy and sometimes games launch and sometime not.

2. PS2 for non-bc ps3
3. Not tested ps2 support for bc console
4. Used Estwald's new core edited by me, check below for changelog...

NOTE: ps2 will have controller synch if used modded emu (see below)

CORE: In this CFW I have by default added original ps2_emus for ps3 so that if you are disturbed with controller sync problem,you can use original emu for ps2. To enable/disable modded ps2 emu,use ps2 flag i've created.

Put a 0 byte file named "ps2" in usb/core_flags/ then put the usb in the rightest port of ps3 and turn ps3 on,if everything goes right, the ps3 should restart and flag ps2 will rename to _ps2 if ps2 emu for bc or semi-bc console doesn't work or you see them buggy, use ps2 flag and swap back to original emu...

PRX loading at startup, iso mounting, ntfs support are working.

NOTE:

1. if you have installed bad plugin etc,pls change fw from cobra(from recovery ofcourse) to different as cobra safe_mode isnt working properly on 4.53

WARNING: DONT TRY TO SPOOF FW VERSION!! All the other patches of a cfw is included.

THIS COBRA PORT IS DONE FIRST TIME BY ME, SO I MAY PROVIDE UPDATES OVER TIME...

Update: There is an issue causing some Cobra Feature to not work properly, best advised to stay on v1.04 until the issue has been sorted.

Changelog 1.05a:

1. PS2 for semi-bc PS3 working as per user by using this method:

1- Start ps3 with the controller via usb.
2- Launch ps2 iso.
3- The game starts and the controller loses the sync but i'm able to resync it.
although its been said its buggy and sometimes games launch and sometime not..

2. PS2 for non-bc PS3
3. My own plugin used for ps2 swapping (see below)
4. Fixed webman plugin bugs which occurred
5. Used my own plugin instead of estwalds core thus nullifying problems with webman....

NOTE: PS2 will have controller synch if used modded emu (see below)

CORE: In this cfw i have by default added original ps2_emus for ps3 so that if you are disturbed with controller sync problem, you can use original emu for ps2.

You need to use my plugin and edit boot_plugins.txt adding this line: /dev_hdd0/habibplugin.sprx put the sprx in dev_hdd0/

SIGNS OF CORE: 3 beeps or reboot=SUCCEED! once you hear 3 beeps, reboot PS3...

Update #2: Guys you won't need that habibplugin on my latest cfw 4.53 v1.05a by using this: [Register or Login to view links]

Controller synch won't appear on classics BUT will give you controller synch prob in iso... it wasn't thoroughly tested, i'm just posting it, at a glance, it was all good and yeah its for non-bc ps3 only... as cobra files is same on steven one too, you can use it.
