Package contains:

  • mmCM 03.00.00 (3108 PS3 Covers, 2020 PS2 Covers) (showTIME, ps3SERV)

  • 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:

[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:

Today Cobra USB Firmware 4.0 for PS3 is released for those who own the device... with the changes detailed below as follows: 04-10-2011 - Cobra Firmware v4.0

  • Added initial support to play PSP games in iso format. Please read the user manual for instructions. The emulator is not perfect and it currently fails in saving/loading data, but there are several games playable at full speed. We've fixed some bugs in the emulator, and it loads now more games that it originally did. In the future, we will continue to improve the compatibility of the emulator and fix the savedata issue.

  • A new version of cobraflash has been released, and is required to install firmware 4.0, that uses a new format. You can find it in the download section. Drivers remain the same, there is no need to update them.

  • New update format is more secure against bad writes, and it will be compatible with cobra updater for PS3 which will be released along with firmware 4.1.

Today several users have confirmed that Netflix is working again on JailBroken (Backwards Compatible) PS3 consoles with a PS2 Netflix Disk (SLUS21949) via Cobra USB for those who own the device.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

To quote from: ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/884-Netflix?p=8148#post8148:

Nodieza: So I was on Blackcats checking out the new releases and I came across a "PS2 netflix disk" uploaded by a fellow Blackcats member named mredfield.

So I gave it a shot on my Cobra USB enabled PS3 and sure enough.... it works! Yes it's lacking all the HD glory of the PS3 version but it works!

Apparently this is a very rare disk so I shall upload it for all to enjoy.

"This is verified a legit release from Brazil. I called netflix today and talked on the phone. They said netflix for ps2 is available only in Brazil which is why no info is available, this means it isnt a hack, it wont steal info, ect."

It's also a padded ISO so don't be surprised by the extraction size. Also I am assuming this will only work on PS3's with native PS2 support.

It's hard for me to tell because I have my NTSC PS3 hooked up to a computer monitor (as far as I can tell it's staying at 60hz). I didn't have to do a Y Fix pal conversion on the iso or anything like I've had to do on some PAL games... so I assume it should work on any NTSC tv.

Also for those wondering I live in North America and my Netflix account works fine despite it being a Brazilian based Netflix disk. And everything is in English.

lukethomasx: I can also confirm this working on my fat NTSC ceche PlayStation 3 with my American netflix account. Thank you very much for the heads up +1

For those who own one, Cobra USB Firmware 3.2 and 3.3 are now released with the following changes: 05 - 09 - 2011

Cobra Firmware v3.2 More Features and bugs fixed:

  • Added support for PS2 backups in optical discs (CD-R/DVD+-R)
  • PS2 original games are now region free too.
  • Fixed a bug that caused incompatibility with several PS2 backups in iso format.
  • Fixed some remaining PAL/NTSC problems in PSX games.
  • Cobra USB Manager will output now a mds file too when dumping a dual layer DVD or PS2-DVD. This file is not used by Cobra at all, but it can be used for burning to a dual layer DVD+-R while keeping original layer structure. This is mandatory when burning dual layer PS2 dvd's.

  • Fixed a bug introduced in 3.2 that made some systems unstable when starting a PSX game.

I would buy this if JFW wasn't being made.

They must have some real talent onboard their team, considering the features they have with it, and the water tight security (so far) on the device. I'm also very surprised that it hasn't been cloned yet as its been ages.
