  • SHOWTIME PLAYER: Included as SHOWTIME.SELF in mmCM USRDIR/sys folder to enable playback of video files
  • BROWSER.SELF: Standalone WWW/FTP application

Condorstrike from [Register or Login to view links] believes deank is not working for the Cobra USB Team and has stated the following on the IRC logs below discussing it:

"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.

From IRC:

[Abkarino] deank had joind cobra team?
[flash67] LOL

[TehRuler] LOL
[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...

Unself the vsh.self (try using MAGIC PKG 1.0), then HexEdit the vsh.ELF and replace the 8 bytes at the following addresses:


Then use self_rebuilder (also available in Make PKG 1.0), to rebuild the vsh.self

I would wait for further comment or release tends before really speculating on Dean's stance in the scene. I'm not mad at him either way, but I just hope he doesn't set himself up for associative attention.

Its dean's work, he can sell HIS work and get remuneration for it. ITS HIS TIME, the question here is who is paying, because WE DIDN'T pay for his time.

I really think he is the one that enjoys the least his work, because the hundreds of hours he invests in coding don't give him time to get some gaming, sad but true. Thanks dean for what you could give us as long as you could, you deserve at least a couple bucks to get your testing equipment for free and THATS nothing compared with what you worked for. Imagine all those hours at a modest ($50USD) pero hour and you tell me if free equipment is worth it.

my 2 cents.

Yes, guys... Agree with everything that was said. If we could have one of this freakin dongles with stable CFW (like kmeaw), support for PSX, PS2, PSP isos, homebrew compatible, multiman mounted and TB payload for newer games... well... THEN I WOULD REALLY GET IT. LLOOOLL!!!

Oh, I forgot... And the dongle MUST talk with sexy lady voice. Damn!

I would like to hear directly from dean as well not just speculation... I have followed his MM program for a long time and loved the updates, then the updates just stopped coming, does that mean without the dongle their will be no more updates?

Sad, but understandable in the POV of Dean, I don't know his job, place of residence, if he has a family to provide for, or his living standards so yeah if you understand that he is a human being there is no reason to be angry with him, unless he publicly says screw everyone that supported him or others accrediting to his program.

In short I really don't want to buy a freakin dongle I spend enough money, MILKING COWS DOESN'T PAY FOR EVERYTHING.

There is no PSP support on the new update (4.2) It basically took away support from what I tested. I used the new Multiman (Cobra Edition) and I plugged in my PSP like it said I could... but nothing happens. Leading me to believe it has no support anymore.

It lied about allowing you to boot games from the PSP. Unless someone can confirm and tell me how the hell you do it. Because I just spent like 12 minutes trying to get it to work. And when I tested a PSP game off a usb.. it errored telling me to "install" the PSP launcher... again? I already have it installed but I get that error every time.
