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.

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

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. 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...

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.

Any 4.50 or higher can be installed. Again like other post you made, use the downgrader pup first, then change CFW

Hi, i used this and i think it may have bricked my ps3. After restart my ps3 turns on normally but i get no signal and my controller lights flash for 6 seconds then stop. Any chance of recovery ?

Edit: Was lucky enough to get into recovery menu thankfully, Reinstalling cfw from usb if thats no good ill try other options from the menu
