HABIB COBRA 4.55 V1.01

Luckily emu on 4.53 and 4.55 is same so support for Semi-BC PS3's is added.

Changelog:

  • safety feature for plugins have been re-added.to use it just re-install fw and it is fixed (from recovery)
  • plugins are now loaded from dev_habib, boot_plugins.txt resides there.as a result, habibplugin is built in and safety feature now work
  • semi-bc ps2emu support

Please post your results... Also don't forget on how to use habibplugin, it's now built inside the firmware.

Update: HABIB COBRA 4.55 V1.02A

  • 2 persons reported for a black screen.
  • The size dev_flash was taking big so i lowered it. It fixes those issues.. tested on 3 consoles and so far, no error.

Update #2: HABIB COBRA 4.55 V1.02B

This is public release. And forget v1.02A, 1.02A was for that guy to test. I have reverted some things and now its working good.1.02B is builted from 1.00 with semi-bc support only.

1. up to user you use habibplugin
2. no more boot_plugins.txt in dev_flash (now resides where it should (dev_hdd0))
3. re-builded from v1.00
4. semi-bc ps2 support.
5. BUG FIX!!! (for old phaty models)

Update #3: HABIB COBRA 4.55 V1.03

HABIBPLUGIN: No need for 0 byte file, instead, use this combo: L2 + R2 + Select and you will get a message of the progress on the right corner of ps3.once done, PS3 will reboot.. this combo can be applied in xmb and in-game xmb (like every plugin).

CFW: Supports for PS2 for all PS3's (for semi-bc and bc PS3 you need to connect controller through usb and then you can disconnect it, controller will work wirelessly).. controller bug is partially covered by using old, fixed PS2 emu for bc and semi-bc PS3.

can I install on Rogero 4.50 directly? should I have to downgrade to 3.55?

"Do not try to spoof"

Well that also means you cant use WebMan or MultiMan as they both spoof by default.

To quote: HABIB 4.53: Cobra Edition v1.04

prx loading at startup, iso mounting, ntfs support are working but however i cant fix ps2 for bc consoles as i don't have bc consoles and didn't patch for ps3 slim as ps2 classic and cobra uses same ps2_netemu for ps3 slim

NOTE:

1. ps2 isos for slim is ps2 classic as cobra and ps2 classic uses same ps2_netemu and i cant fix issue of bc consoles as i don't have any bc console
2. if you have installed bad plugin etc, pls change fw from cobra (from recovery of course) to different as cobra safe_mode isn't 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

SRC: it is included in download pkg. i have done partial work of ps2 too but it won't work. i hope you will make a good use of it.

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...

CHANGELOG v1.04:

1. FIXED CONTROLLER ISSUE ON SOME GAMES (THANKS TO REPORTERS OF THIS ISSUE)
2. STABILITY IMPROVEMENT (A LITTLE)
3. ADDED CATEGORY_GAME.XML FOR WEBMAN BY DEFAULT

CHANGELOG v1.03:

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 cant fix ps2 issue of bc consoles as i dont have any,so compatibility between cobra and ps2classic on bc ps3 will vary....

CHANGELOG v1.02:

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

  • Install a different hdd
  • 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)

CHANGELOG v1.01:

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

Does this mean i can install a CFW on a CECH-2501B console with 4.53 OFW. Looking at two different consoles to buy right now. the other is cech-2001a possibly with current OFW. Should I buy and will I be able to run backups of my game discs?
