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

As far as I know Multiman has great compatibility with lots of ps1 games built in without any dongle required, Cobra are planning to support multidisk games too though which will be the only ps1 bonus to Cobra owners, if that gets released, it probably will, then the free scene will get it too not long after.. same old story!

the only thing you'd really want the dongle for is to play your legally owned ps2 backups, well that's what i'd get it for anyway. otherwise, multiman and kmeaw is just as good!

Surely he 's using it without dongle. Guys, please, wake up. Without dongle, doesn't do nothing more than what old version always did plus a lil more tricks..

I cant really help much with that as im on Rebug 3.55. Some more info might help others figure it out, I assume you are using the new cmMM 4.00?

Do you have the Cobra dongle? does it happen EVERY time you exit MM or only with certain games mounted etc?
