78w 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.
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

Shame on the coder for patched games. I'm not a skilled programmer but i know that this is just a offset thing to add. And i doubt that he is really working on that, just adding new code but it seems that dean himself is not really interested in. I think that he only implemented the usage of the psp/ps1 emulator and doesn't try to improve the hole thing.
Also we get no information on that kind meaning why this or that don't work. Looks like he still try to put a mass of things into the app without thinking on other things.
I doubt it would help. The last update did nothing to improve capability for PSP games. And I highly doubt this will. If I update and test the games I tested before and if they blackscreen... then it proves me right. Not just that but there is no game covers... I never was able to download game covers in it. So I doubt this would fix that.
Reporting back, what a surprise... it still can't play patched games.
