Cobra PS3 USB Dongle Reversed by Zadow, Payload Development


96w ago - Following up on the recent PS3UserCheat dongle hacking news, today PlayStation 3 developer zadow28 has updated his ongoing work with some reverse-engineering and payload development research on the DRM-infected Cobra PS3 USB dongle.

Download: Cobra USB Payloads and Other Essential Files (77.33 MB) / Cobra USB Payloads and Other Essential Files (Mirror) / Cobra USB Payloads and Other Essential Files (Mirror) / Cobra USB Update v1 (350.88 KB - place these in the Cobra-USB_PS3_Updater_v1_0\CBUP43210\USRDIR directory) / cipher.ppu.elf.txt (954.98 KB)

It's important to note that these files are not end-user friendly yet, work still needs to be done by those familiar with PS3 PPU / SPU coding in IDA Pro by other PlayStation 3 developers to further develop payloads for dongle-free PS3 scene solutions.

Finally, below are some recent related Tweets via Twitter (linked above), as follows:

If you cant uses the stuff i post carry on. as promised i post all i find compared to others. Like secrets Hens that work on 4.11

Its my findings regarding the cobra, lot off reversed, and decrypted. Shouldn't be any trouble porting this to any device

Ohh almost forgot one off the most important ones goes in the Cobra-USB_PS3_Updater_v1_0\CBUP43210\USRDIR

Don't think Dean is gonna be very happy.but but.

Just an little test off whats ill be sending tomorrow. will explain also there

We're getting there... But don't pay for a dongle, with patience all comes free...

And then there will be PS4 and we started over again...

Today we have a little snipesd of the COBRA dongle with a few interesting parts of code they proof that what we sayed is true and that you can turn a normall retail ps3 into a debugger one or at least into debugger mode. Enyoi reading and have fun



flags -> 0x8x

-> load /apphome/liblv2.sprx

/devflash/sys/external/libv2.sprx

sys process elf

sys prx user

sys prx kernel

elf fixed

it's a patch !!

real time patch

elf -> LV2



and after they said that cobra/tb2 are not related to debugger

Version -> 0x08X the PS3

revision -> boot mode



selfdecrypter ??


hmmm

That new display mode looks awesome, it's simple and easy to use. I'm also glad they added new themes, the ones that came with the first mmCM weren't that good.

Below is a mmCM (multiMAN Cobra Manager) v04.00.01 Base (20120126) update for those with the dongle, with the changes outlined as follows:

Download: mmCM (multiMAN Cobra Manager) v04.00.01 Base Update

26 - 01 - 2012

  • Added new display mode (Board 5x4x5), replacing the oldest "Game list (plain)" mode

  • "Board" display mode shows ICON0.PNG game images by default. You can use covers by changing the option "XMMB Icon Swap" in Settings

  • Improved File Manager visuals when used in SD resolution (480p/576p)

  • Fixed an issue, which prevented operation on CFW/MFW 3.41

  • Added support for showing PSN titles in all display modes from internal/external HDD (PSN titles cannot be loaded and you have to put empty RELOAD.SELF in game's USRDIR folder to make it show!) (requested)

  • Added lastGAME2 and bdRESET applications

  • Added 11 new themes to the theme download section (total of 14 now)

  • Updated 15 language files

  • Added separate background images for Board and XBDM display modes (PSVBG.JPG and XBDBG.JPG)

  • Updated mmCM Original Theme (includes new images PSVBG.JPG, XBDBG.JPG, PBOX0.PNG, PBOX1.PNG)

  • Preparations to support loading of network PS3, DVD and Blu-ray ISO files

  • Preparations to support firmware version spoofer (auto-spoofing to latest official FW or to user-defined fixed version)

  • Required Cobra USB update will be announced when network ISO and firmware spoof support is available

Q: So what's the advantage of lastGAME2 over the original LastGame app?

A: There are 3 versions actually:

1) The original lastGAME works with mM 01.13.* - 02.09.02.
2) lastGAME2 works with mM 04.00.00+.
3) lastGAME2 for CobraUSB works with ISOs (DVD/PSX/PS1/PS2/PSP/PS3/BD-movies), too.

There is no way to play PSP games without it unless it is a PSP Mini game from PSN that works on CFW (someone correct me if I'm wrong). PSP games are mountable on the PS3 though (http://www.ps3news.com/ps3-hacks-jailbreak/psp-games-mountable-on-ps3-reports-snowydew-of-gitbrew/).
