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

yeah, this emulator is old and does not work well but it's a good progress still. more interested in PSP emulator working, that works better from Cobra.

the real hope for PS2 emulation on PS3 is hacking the new emulator being used in the new PS2 PSN classics. Those are working great.

Yes, cool. But how will the games play.

I already tried playing PS2 Original games using Cobra on Non BC Compatible PS3 and it sucks big time believe me. I can't see this method any better, but who am I too say.

PS1 Original games play anyway on any PS3.

it should. it just bites the compatibility is less than stellar. i mean, the psx one is near perfect, so i imagine with some tweaking, people should be able to boost this on up a little more.

Finally , funny thing is I just bought the game XIII for my PS2 but just realized my memory card was stuffed up so I couldn't save. Hopefully this will work well.

This well let me play original PS2 games on my PS3 though, right?
