Following up on the previous MultiMAN v04.60.00 CEX (Base) official release by deank, today PlayStation 3 developer Isleofdoom made available an unofficial port of MultiMAN version 04.65.00 PKG for Habib v1.02 PS3 CFW 4.65 with details below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] (Error 80029564) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror #2) / [Register or Login to view links] (Removed due to Payload Issue)

To quote: Actually I have a version of multiman that works with this fw but had to modify it to work. Ok I will upload it later on tonight when I get the time. To add a better speed compatibility resign games using makeself latest version as I found it boost the speed of loading.

I am not the only one who has been modding his work as I've seen kakaroto version of mm as well. From what I have heard this isn't kakaroto that we know but someone else using his name.

I am aware it's closed source but we each have our own methods of doing things and I managed to get 4.60 to work on 4.65 but did take a bit of work.

Feel free to comment and let me know if there is any issues and I will have a look into fixing them. I will sit down tonight and see if I can port it for all other fw as I also found a PSX bug related to controller when starting FF7.

Install this from clean install and make sure your games are in iso format as I haven't done the emu for 4.65 yet.

Finally, from Zarh: Here is your process:

  • Take the original MM 4.60 CEX: [Register or Login to view links]
  • Unpack it
  • Then remove "lang" directory
  • Change in PARAM.SFO the "PS3 SYSTEM" from "3.40" to "4.65"
  • Change in PARAM.SFO the "APP VERS" from "4.60" to "4.65"
  • Resign EBOOT.BIN with 4.20-4.65 keys (original keys are 3.40-3.42)
  • Repack the pkg - rename it: "MM Mod by XXX.pkg"

I'm sorry but this is not really a "Mod", you just resign it.

PS: The best way to make JB games working with MM in 4.60+ is to force MM to use BDmirror mode. To do that you have to remove or rename the file /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/sys/AIOMOD.BIN then to active the BDemu in the game option screen.

You also need the 465emu in the system folder.

10 - 9 - 2014: Cobra ODE News - Information

Team Cobra can now confirm that all Cobra ODE versions (v3/v4 and v5 hardware) are functional on OFW 4.65 whilst using Cobra 2.2 fw on 4k series consoles.

10 - 9 - 2014: Cobra ODE News - Information

Pictured below is the new DMC module for PHAT PATA, SATA PHAT, 2k, 2k5 and 3k consoles which enables use of all versions of Cobra ODE (3.xx/4.xx and 5.xx) on 4.60 OFW. A swap disc is required in line with current usage of Cobra ODE on OFW 4.60 and 4k consoles.

s3nint3!The DMC module has an Actel FPGA on board which controls the optical lens' units disc eject motor, thus enabling us to insert and remove discs without detection by the drive controller. The onboard FPGA is linked to a USB PHY which enables full reprogramming of the FPGA at any time via USB connected to your PC.

The Cobra DMC connects to the Cobra ODE (all models) via the JTAG 24 pin FFC port on the Cobra ODE and the "main" port on the Cobra DMC. All necessary cables are included.

The Cobra DMC can be mounted adjacent to the optical drive of your PS3. The module then connects to the eject motor inside your drive, without soldering via FFC cables.

The suggested retail price of the Cobra ODE DMC is USD 29.99 or less.

First shipments of Cobra DMC will be with resellers by September 30th latest. Please pre-order early to avoid disappointment.

The 5.1B and 5.3A Cobra ODE devices can also be purchased bundled with the DMC module for 20 USD extra approximately.

The Cobra Team is now testing the recently released 4.65 OFW to confirm compatibility, verification results will be posted soon.

Notes:

  • 4k consoles - CAN RUN BACKUPS ON OFW 4.60/4.65 WITHOUT THE DMC - BUT IT NEEDS THE SWAP DISK.
  • FAT, SLIMS 2K, 3K - THEY CAN NOT WORK ON OFW 4.60/4.65 (BACKUPS WILL SHOW ERRORS) UNLESS YOU BUY THE NEW DMC MODULE AND YOU WILL NEED A SWAP DISK. IT'S HIGLY RECOMENDABLE THAT YOU STAY ON OFW 4.55 - NO SWAP NEED
  • COBRA FIRMWARE - ALL USERS, REGARDLESS OF THEIR PS3 MODEL CAN UPDATE TO LATEST COBRA (PCB) (version 2.2) FIRMWARE AND ENJOY NEW FEATURES - WITHOUT THE SWAP DISK.
  • UNLESS THAT THEY UPDATE TO OFW 4.60/4.65 FOR FATS AND SLIMS 2K AND 3K, OR IF YOU OWN A 4K AND UPDATED TO 4.55 OR 4.60/4.65 YOU WILL ALSO NEED THE SWAP DISK.
  • You will just need DMC and swap disk ONLY ON older consoles (FAT, SLIMS 2K, 3K ) if you update to 4.60 or 4.65.

HCL - Humble Cobra Laucher v0.4 by Roor

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

Hi. As promised (again), here's the fourth weekly update of HCL (Humble Cobra Launcher).
This week I didn't have much spare time, and couldn't dedicate more than a couple of hours... so there's little I was able to add to HCL.

And I had even less time for beta-testing... I hope no "big" bugs were left in this version. Sorry for that...

HCL is a Cobra ODE manager. If you want to use it, just replace the original "cobra manager" (manager.iso) and make sure that your "cobra.cfg" is already set to use homebrew.

Here are the most important changes in this version (HCL V0.4):

  • Improved PKG Installer. Now you can install "cracks" and other stuff. Please read below for further info.
  • New Emulators Section. Here I will be adding emulators for different systems, so you will be able to run ROMS from any USB Stick.
  • NES/Famicom Emulator. I included a NES Emulator (Fceu), just select it from the "emulators" section, then just "browse" and select your .NES rom.
  • SNES/SuperFamicom Emulator. I included a SNES Emulator, just select it from the "emulators" section, then just "browse" and select your .SMC rom.
  • Sega Genesis Emulator. I included a Genesis/Megadrive Emulator, just select it from the "emulators" section, then just "browse" and select your .GEN rom.
  • Alternative Installation. If you do not want HCL to put stuff inside your internal HDD, you can place a USB stick into the zero USB Slot (the one to the right). If HCL detects a file named "hcl.cfg" inside it, it will use the Stick for storing datafiles instead.

Coming features (in following weekly updates):

  • Disc Ripper (present right now, but seems that doesn't work in ALL Cobra ODE, I'm still investigating the issue).
  • Better PKG Installer (support for game updates and DLC installs)
  • Param.sfo Viewer.
  • Image Viewers.
  • Better and more Emulators.
  • Sound Effects.

About EMULATORS:

I can't take credit for the emulators nor for Elleganz, nor for the bugs they may carry.
I'll try to make sure that HCL gets the best version available for each, and of course that they run fine with Cobra ODE.

I noticed, for example, that the "font size" for the NES one is "extremely" small, and so...
I'll try to work our these issues for next version, and "recompile" and modify the emulators from their latest source if necessary.

About PKG INSTALLER:

  • PKG Installer, for now, only allows you to install Games, Demos, Homebrews, and others. But it WILL NOT allow you to install Game Updates nor DLCs (nor PS1 games, nor PS2 games... ONLY PS3/PSN GAMES); Although now you can "overwrite" folders and files in order to install DLC, or cracks; HCL will tell you and ask if you want to "overwrite stuff". Take into consideration that everytime you overwrite something there's a chance you "break" the previously installe game.

  • The INSTALLER does not "crack" the games for you. Most PSN content, if not cracked before install, will just run in "demo mode" or not run at all.

  • The INSTALLER will NOT install PS1, PS2 classics content and others (only PS3 GAMES); this kind of packages cannot be installed with HCL yet (they might have crash HCL).

  • After installing a PKG, you need to enter into GAMEDATA TOOL menu of PS3, this will force XMB menu to update, and then it will display the icon to the stuff you just installed.

  • If you want to add more files to an already existing installation, I suggest to use the File Browser and copy the files as needed.

Please write feedback.

Cheers.

Update: Sorry. I've been away since last week; and wasn't able to do much progress. Next update will have to wait until October the 6th; so I can prepare something that's worth so much wait.

Please let me know if there's any specific improvement that you expect for next update. Some I'm already preparing:

  • Updated version of bundled "Eleganz".
  • More and better "emulators".
  • Better support for PS1 and PS2 covers.
  • Miscellaneous "usability" improvements.

OR download from the attached files... You Should have a good flash drive... if you follow these steps you will be able to update your Cobra Ode with this chip (v5p10B10.spi) successfully without and problems and you will be able to play games without errors.

*Disconnect your ps3 from the Power and put the updates one by one... every update should finish with green Led... when it finish with green Led put the next update... and so on

just, thank me.

Finally, from jarmster: Well I just tried my 4.65 mfw with the anti-ode patch... And it works

It still suffers from the same issue of games with updates not running but I'm running street fighter right now.

I compared habib 4.60 ode lv2 with 4.60 OFW lv2 in a hex editor and was able to locate his 2 patches.

I then disassembled all 3 lv2's. I located and compared his edits and was able to relocate the offsets in 4.65. I patched 4.65 and just finished installing and testing...

Like I said, games with updates will not work but at least we know that there isn't a second check and his original patches work on 4.65.

These are the patches for 4.60 and 4.65...
