48w 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
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

To quote: Dean has come through and updated multiMAN to version 4.40.00. This quick update makes it compatible with REBUG's released 4.41 LITE CFW As well as any future 4.41 CFW's that are eventually released.
Added support for 4.41 CFW
All specific features (like BD Movie region Change, BD-Mirror, DYNAREC, PS1 BIN+ISO backups, PS2 Classics, discless, etc) work.
multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE (20130502).zip (104.59 MB) Includes:
multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE CEX (20130502).pkg (37 MB)
multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE DEX (20130502).pkg (32 MB)
multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE STEALTH (20130502).zip (35 MB)
Note: If you ran multiMAN on 4.41 before this update, you will need to re-enable the BD-ROM emulator (bottom option in settings) and restart multiMAN for it to work.
Note 2: lastGAME, gameDATA and stDISC won't work. bdRESET should still work. The function in mM for ext.game data works. If you have gameDATA installed you can switch back to HDD mode.
Update: Dean has compiled a new mM compatible version of Showtime. Showtime 04.03.211 [CEX] for multiMAN: Replace it (via FTP or mmOS) in /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/sys/:
Update 2: multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE CEX (20130503).pkg is also now available above with the following additions:
Updated Showtime for mM to 04.03.211
Updated PS1 Emulator (ps1_emu.self) to 4.41 (it will be used on 4.40 and 4.41 CFWs)
Updated PS1_NET Emulator (ps1_netemu.self) to 4.41 (it will be used on 4.40 and 4.41 CFWs)
Now mM will use ps1_emu/ps1_netemu from 4.41OFW (patched of course) when launching PS1 ISO/BIN+CUE backups if your PS3 is running 4.40CFW/4.41CFW. I didn't change the mM version, but if you wish better PS1 backups compatibility and newer Showtime - update to this BASE version.
You can install this version either from scratch or update any installed mM version.
Finally, mMTools has also been updated for PS3 4.41 CFW with details below, as follows:
I had an old phat ps3 here a cecha01 that had no hard drive and red light of death. So I put a HDD and re flowed it works great. I am at Rogero 4.40 v1.02 right now and I can't get multiman to work all I get is a black screen what am I doing wrong. I installed full 4.04 and 4.06. Then 4.14 full and 4.30 base nothing?
