More Mirrors (via mateogodlike.com/2013/05/ps3-multiman-044000-upd-base-cex-dex.html):


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.

Changelog:

  • 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:

And here are the remaining tools:

Included:

  • lastGAME6.pkg (requires mM 04.40.00 if used for PS1 backups)
  • gameDATA6.pkg
  • bdRESET6.pkg
  • stDISC4.pkg

All tools should now support 4.41 CFW. Older firmwares 3.55 / 4.21 / 4.30 / 4.31 / 4.40 (CEX / DEX) are supported, too.

The server issue is that there is no more a server. You should have no problems playing retro roms with any mM version.

28 - 2 - 2014: Cobra ODE News - Update

COBRA ODE 2.0 fw Release for V3 and V4/V4 QSV Cobra PCB's including OFW 4.55 Bypass

We are pleased to present for release the Cobra fw 2.0 which has many new features and also initial support for OFW 4.55. Whilst the support for OFW 4.55 is not as convenient as on previous OFW's, it provides a solution for those who accidentally updated or wish to use 4.55 directly on SEN.

We suggest that users remain on 4.53 or lower if they wish to benefit from the full convenience of an ODE solution. That being said we are researching other possible methods for compatibility with the 4.55+ firmwares and will keep our users posted through the news on this site and various other forums.

Before using the Cobra ODE kindly refer to the 4.55 Bypass manual carefully. Please be sure to follow the prerequisite steps and ensure that you have updated the firmware on the ODE hardware properly first. Kindly note that 1 wire must be soldered to the drive door, which is detailed in the updated installation manual. The newly launched V5 QSV Cobra does not require a wire to be soldered for controlling the 4k series drive door, since it is bundled with a special adapter which takes care of this functionality via the included ribbon cables.

In addition to the 4.55 OFW support, we have included many new features which are sure to excite users and demonstrate the power of the Cobra ODE.

New features in 2.0 fw:

  • On the fly generation of browser menu system (no pc app required)
  • LED configuration
  • Full 4k auto eject system added
  • XMB enabled passthrough system added, use of hardware switch not required
  • Configuration of eject delay added
  • AES performamce increased by 100%
  • Disc dumping via manager added
  • + Many other tweaks and performance benefits added

We have also freshened up our user manauls to make installation and detailing of the full functionality of the Cobra ODE easier to understand.

As you can see the 2.0 fw release is a massive leap forward. You can be sure to expect more from Team Cobra in the months to come.

2.0fw for V5 QSV users will be released in the following week... Read "User Manual v2.0" and follow Bootloader update procedure prior to use FPGA update from MCU v2.0. Thanks for your continued support.

Download:









Finally, from SDeath comes an updated Easy Batch Generate/Merge COBRA ISO's Tool (Including OFW 4.55 ISO's + Swap Disc) with direct download links below.

To quote: And a whole new update of my tool came together with the 2.0 COBRA ODE update. To make sure you can convert all those games for the 4.55 bypass more easily. And also supports the merging of the games dumped by the new Manager.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

Changelog: 28-02-2014 (dd-mm-yyyy):

  • Updated to latest version support files released today by the COBRA Team.
  • Added support for OFW 4.55 Bypass batch ISO creation.
  • Added support to generate the OFW 4.55 Bypass SwapDisc.
  • Added support to batch merge game ISO's either dumped using the new 1.6 COBRA Manager, or split with genps3iso.
  • Added Check to see if source folders are empty.
  • Generated a exe from the script.

Only people with a 4k PS3 and are on OFW 4.55 need to use the swap disc and will need to rebuild their games!!

All others don't need to do this, they can still update to COBRA ODE 2.0 firmware to enjoy the new features.

Tutorial: How to Dump a Game with Cobra Manager 1.6

  • Connect a FAT32 USB drive to the front ports of the PS3.
  • Uncomment this line in the cobra.cfg: disc.unsupported=ignore
  • Start the Manager (this won't work on the Browser).
  • Switch to the disc you want to dump (also unsupported discs can be dumped when switched when the manager is running).
  • Press triangle.

After it's done you can use the Easy Batch Generate/Merge COBRA ISO's Tool (Including OFW 4.55 ISO's + Swap Disc) to merge them again into one ISO file.

Known Issues:

I've seen crashes after it's done dumping, you need to hard reboot the PS3 to get it to work again.

Tutorial: How to Prepare the HDD (with Preconfigured Packages)

This will replace the Tutorial: How to Create the Cobra Browser, with the 2.0 update of the Cobra ODE, things have changed how the Browser behaves and how it's created, it all does it on the fly.

So therefore a Browser Tutorial is not needed anymore, but to make things easy for you I have setup 3 pre-configured HDD packages to prepare your HDD, this way you are sure all the needed files are there on the HDD.

The Packages:


*Stealth will show the Cobra Browser in the Games and Video section of the XMB, SuperStealth will only show the Cobra Browser in the Video section.

All 3 packages include the Browser and the Manager, from update 2.0 onward it's very easy to switch between the two, just a small edit in the cobra.cfg. The differences between the packages is just how the cobra.cfg is setup. The Manager now also supports disc dumping so that's why I think it should also be included in the Browser packages.

Instructions:

01 - Download one of the above packages.
02 - Extract the contents to the root of the HDD.
03 - Copy the games to the folder PS3_GAMES.
04 - Adjust the cobra.cfg to your needs, on default it will show the Return to Manager option in the XMB, the other options like 4.55 or LED disable you need to adjust yourself.
05 - Safe eject the HDD and connect to the external PCB USB port. Done!

Tips

If you downloaded one of my Browser packages you can switch easily to the manager by changing this line:

To this:

And if you used my Manager package you have to do the revers to switch to the Browser so change this line:

To this:


  • File versions used: Browser/Manager 1.6, cobra.db 28-02-2014.

I got a Cobra Usb dongle last week on the strength of it being apparently plug in and play and non-invasive procedure for the console. I've found it isn't easy.

As a total novice I need a step by step idiot proof guide how to hack the ps3 so I can actually use it. I've so far installed all the drivers and latest 6.0 firmware on the dongle and come to a grinding halt.

I've downloaded all the files and followed the user manual but am stuck. In various forums I've read about installing flashing devices but I thought using the Cobra you don't.

I need to open the console. I need massive and simple help on what to do. I'm on a PS3 original 60gb uk pal with latest OFW 4.55 installed. Any help gratefully received.

Remember I'm a complete novice and need simple untechnical "do this", "do that" instructions. Thanks in advance.

12 - 2 - 2014: Cobra ODE News - Update

From Cobra manufacturer Max Louarn: We have successfully tested a performance update for 4.20 and 4.30 which rectifies freezing issues reported by some users. We have also implemented a fix for BMD-061 drive control boards on 2k consoles and auto eject on 2k.

Please follow the instructions in the README.TXT carefully.


From PS3 scene profiteer Gary Wayne Bowser (aka GaryOPA):

Don't worry Cobra's solution will be a lot better then E3's half-ass encrypted bootdisc swap-disc.

Cobra's mainboard can do 'encryption on the fly' so if there needs to be a bootdisc with special headers before the iso is loaded, then they will be able to without the need of using an actual Blu-ray.

From magneto: Information update: Only super slim models are affected. The 4.55 update has a specific protection against ODEs. We are lucky to have found a way to bypass this new protection, as Sony have historically only released fixes that cannot be bypassed. We also have a working solution that we're working on, but it is very similar to what E3 has. We are aware that the current 4.55 fix is not user friendly and we are trying to find an alternative solution.

We are trying to make the disc swap solution much more convenient for users before we release it. Some of you should learn to be patient. The team is working around the clock to fix the issue for you, be considerate. Running an IRD-built iso that is the same as the bootdisc you have in the drive should work. Those who reported that some game is working for them, can you confirm that it is a different game than the bootdisc you are using ?

If it isn't, can you upload the iso or specify how it was generated (with IRD or not, which version of genps3iso you used) and specify which bootdisc you used with it and if it works with other bootdiscs ? We expect to have an update available in the coming week.

We have a fix for we are currently testing for those who get the 80010017 error. It will be released with the 2.0 update.

Update: 15 - 2 - 2014: Cobra ODE News - Information

Cobra 2.0 release imminent - features explained (Including initial support for 4.55):

Cobra Team have been hard at work 24/7 preparing the next firmware release for our users. The incoming Cobra 2.0 is once again a massive update and packed with innovative new features.

After the massive features (PS1, PS2, BD/DVD movies and IRD 9 support) added in the recent Cobra 1.90 update, we're back with yet more cool features in 2.0 which will be released in the coming week:

2.0 will pack these features:

  • Initial support for OFW 4.55 (Please read further information in news paragraph below)
  • Auto-generate browser from the MCU, no more need for genps3extra
  • Dumping of original games using the BD drive is now possible through the Cobra Manager
  • Added support for XMB enabled Pass-Through mode, meaning user no longer has to use slide switch to swap modes and in addition playback of burned PS1 discs when used in combination with the game.disc_type=ps1 configuration option
  • Increased AES encryption module performance by over 100%, now there is no lag in playback of IRD generated ISO's
  • Added support for updating PS3 firmware without needing to switch to PT mode
  • Eject now possible on 4k systems, without need for user to open console cover
  • Added support for "eject.delay" option to specify delay in milliseconds before reinsertion of disc after it has been ejected on QSB systems (default value of 1000ms)
  • Added support for "leds.disable" configuration option to disable specific LED colors

We have been working on a solution for OFW update 4.55, which will fix the added anti ODE measures. The current approach will be more streamlined than solutions currently offered by other teams, however it is not as convenient as using the ODE on pre 4.55 OFW's. Our R&D focus is now concentrating on other possible solutions to bypassing the 4.55 checks.

The current working solution for OFW 4.55 will be released in the coming week. We advise users to use this update if they have accidentally updated to 4.55. Others who have not yet updated may want to consider keeping their consoles on 4.53 or lower until a better solution is available to benefit from the user convenience of the ODE on these firmwares.

We can now also confirm that only 4k Super Slim series consoles are affected by the 4.55 update. Those who have 3k / 2k5 Slim or earlier consoles are safe to update to 4.55.

Cobra MCU 2.0 Changelog:

  • Added support for manager.type=browser configuration option -> Auto-generate browser from the MCU, no more need for genps3extra
  • Fix DISC.ISO dumping corruption -> Dumping of original games using the BD drive is now possible through the Cobra Manager
  • Added support for XMB enabled Pass-Through mode -> Allow access to the boot disc from the manager or browser and enable PT without touching the PT/EMU switch -> Allow playback of burned PS1 discs when used in combination with the game.disc_type=ps1 configuration option
  • Added support for game.pt=1 configuration option to force software-emulation Pass-Through
  • Increase AES encryption module performance by over 100% -> Playback of IRD generated ISO will not lag anymore
  • Added support for updating PS3 firmware without needing to switch to PT mode -> Still not recommended to update to 4.55 for super slim users
  • Added support for eject.add_menu=1 configuration option to add a menu to return to manager when game iso is loaded -> useful for 4k which don't have Remove Disc option in XMB
  • Added support for "eject.delay" option to specify delay in milliseconds before reinsertion of disc after it has been ejected on QSB systems (default value of 1000ms)
  • Added support for "mcu.underclock" configuration option -> Allows underclocking the MCU to further limit power consumption
  • Added support for "leds.disable" configuration option to disable specific LED colors -> Feature requested by forum user DarkKitarist because LED light was brightening up his room at night -> 1=blue, 2=red, 4=green, can be added to disable more than one color, leds.disable=6 disables red and green, leds.disable=7 disables all led colors -> Disabling a color can affect LED color in combined situations, for example, disabling green will show a purple color if you select a DVD or BD movie (normally white)
  • Fix freezing on 4.20 and 4.30 boards

To all the impatient people who can't appreciate the work we're doing and the burnouts we're having from preparing this next release to you: thank you for your encouraging words and for bringing up our motivation in working more than 24h per day for your enjoyment and for fixing your mistake of updating before receiving the green light from the team.

For the others, here is an update on the status of the 2.0 release: The release is almost ready, we are doing QA and trying to get rid of some bugs The changes in the 2.0 firmware are massive with a lot of new features that everyone will appreciate. We do not want to rush this release and have it fail for half our users so we must test it properly. A couple more days of work and if no new bugs are found, the release will be ready. In the meantime, please be patient.

Finally, below are some new PCB Cobra ODE pictures with include Version 5.10B. The new PCB boards are shorter than previous models.

From magneto: The new v5 boards are being shipped now, they are much smaller than previous boards. As SDeath said, you can compare the size with the clipon PCB. They will run cooler so should not have overheating issues, and will be much faster for game loading and for IRD games.

I believe they will also work with the CECHL BMD-21 drives, but I cannot confirm that at the moment.

No, burning and using the swap disc is only needed if you have 4.55 firmware and a 4k model and that mode will only be enabled if you enable the appropriate option in cobra.cfg, otherwise, it will work as before.

It will be one disc for all your games. You will need to burn a bluray disc to play games on 4.55, if you are on 4.55, you can play online. What the other user asked for was if he stayed on 4.53, he can't use online, and wanted to know if he could use his ODE on 4.53 without burning discs.

Yes, 2.0 is universal, you can use it on any model, any firmware version. There is no need for duct tape, that is only for E3. For Cobra, you don't need it, but you need to solder one wire and the installation manual was updated with instructions on how and where to solder it.
