The strings from cobra.elf


From CrashSerious: Case in point: (first 8 lines of the cobra driver)


The device ID and Vendor ID should be useful eventually, but it's so easy to get I'm not sure it's worth mentioning. (Though, it is documented in the wiki.) The device GUID is simply a windows thing so the libusb drivers can be found in the registry, etc.

From lewy20041: Cobra PC update and Debugging Tools for Windows

I have used Debugging Tools for Windows when the proces cobraflash.exe were used to flash Cobra-USB_Firmware_v5.0.cba to dongle and here is the outcome to open this file you need to install Debugging Tools for Windows. maybe some one can look at this. there are wery interesting info about cobra update process on pc.. have fun.

Some of it:



I used 7 zip on cobra.elf ([Register or Login to view links]), inside there are some more files without extensions.. ran it in ida pro and they are also regenized as PPC elf 64 and now the strings look little different: [Register or Login to view links]

From blazek566: Got this from the cobra1 file.. tell if its any good [Register or Login to view links]

Finally from zadow28: Been testing my new tracker on the cobraflash and got some visual results with big difference in security. you can see the results here.

first download: [Register or Login to view links]

small guide to open the visual files, then download the visual files: [Register or Login to view links]

just open the files with the guide. i would recommend cobratrack first. blue spot is start, and you scroll in with mouse. this is from start, too when i load the different images.

its show the way with fake loops, as they are in the software (encryption) the path. it speaks for themselves.
