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:

[Abkarino] deank had joind cobra team?
[flash67] LOL
[TehRuler] YEP
[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...
[flash67] exactly
[middleman] i see deank sold out eh, that mustve been the big news tortuga was talking about
[TehRuler] no wonder he's been hiding
[middleman] yeah, went in hiding to make multiman for cobra, blah

Finally, below are the changes, as follows:

  • Added MultiMan for Cobra in the download section.

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

Cobra ODE FW 2.2 Beta by magneto is now available with details below, as follows:

We are releasing a beta firmware for the version 2.2 of the Cobra ODE.

You will need to have the 2.1 firmware before applying this update, and we are only releasing the mcu.rom image for v3.x and v4.x boards at this time. We will release the update for v5.x boards once we release the final 2.2 version.

This update will make your Cobra ODE work with the 4.60 firmware for PS3 superslim 4k models, including games that have been updated.

Instructions:

  • Download and run extractps3swapfiles: [Register or Login to view links]
  • Download and run genps3swapdisc: [Register or Login to view links]
  • Burn the swap disc to a BD-R or BD-RE disc.
  • Download and run convertps3iso on each of your ISO files: [Register or Login to view links]
  • Download and install the 2.2 Beta firmware for v3.x and v4.x boards: [Register or Login to view links]
  • Edit the cobra.cfg file and add the following lines:

Test your games. If you have installed an update to a game, this firmware will still allow you to run the game, but you will need to swap the discs twice.

If you have any issues, report back here so we can fix them before release. If it works without any problems, let us know as well.

To everyone complaining about the swap method for older models: The Cobra Team has been working hard to give you a solution in order to keep playing online and keep using the ODE. Online capabilities were never guaranteed, and no one is being forced to buy a BD burner.

If it is too expensive for you, then you can stay on 4.55 and enjoy your ODE, or you can update to 4.60 and enjoy online. If you want to enjoy both, then the Cobra Team has a solution for you, it is your choice whether or not to use that solution.

Remember that online play was never guaranteed and the anti-ODE security measures introduced in 4.60 were added by Sony to protect their intellectual property, it is not Cobra's fault. You may be disappointed, but that is out of our control.

Will there be any reason to update to Firmware 2.2 for 4k system owners on non-4.60 OFW? Are there any additional improvements other than 4.60 compatibility?

Yes, firmware 2.2 adds other improvements such as:

  • Increase USB read speeds by 40% for v5.x boards (now over 16.5MB/s)
  • Better swap disc reliability for some brands of BD-R
  • Fix a bug in PS1 game mounting
  • Add support for automatic region patching of PS1 games
  • Fix PS2 games and BD movies support when manager.on_reboot option is enabled

30 - 7 - 2014: Cobra ODE News - Information

We are pleased to announce that we will be releasing an update in the next week or so for 4k users which allows all versions of Cobra ODE to function on 4.60 OFW including all game updates. A swap disc is still required. This makes us the first team to confirm full support of 4.60 OFW with 4k consoles.

We are currently developing methods to bypass 4.60 OFW on PATA phat, 2k and 2k5/3k systems. A news update will follow again shortly, stay tuned!

The update for 4k users to bypass 4.60 OFW will be bundled with several other improvements and a couple of added features in the 2.2 update.

In addition, we can now confirm that shipments of the 5.30A complete version of the Cobra ODE took place over the weekend and stocks should be available from your local resellers over the next couple days.

Play PSN Games in Cobra ODE by Making ISO of PKG Files Tutorial by IamImtiaz

If you guys facing problem making iso file of PSN Games than follow this video tutorial...





You need these softwares:

1. PkgView_1.3
2. ODDE Eboot Resigner
3. ISO Tool

I made a ISO of PSN Game (RESIDENT EVIL UMBRELLA CHRONICLES) and it worked

Note:- The ISO will be made without IRD so it wont be 1:1 so do go online...

From Mogwai: Yeah, 4.7 does behave a little quirky.

Here is the stable 4.6.10:
