Finally, below is how to launch PSN games via multiMAN for those interested from sealhealy (via psx-scene.com/forums/content/tutorial-2280/):

Launch PSN Games from multiMAN like any other PS3 backup:

1. Install your PSN package game like you normally would
2. In multiman go into file manager and navigate to /dev_hdd0/game
3. Find the corresponding game folder to the game you just installed eg. 'Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell HD' = NPEB00527
4. Copy this folder to your USB game folder /dev_usb000/GAMES
5. Now rename the copied folder to something meaningful eg./dev_usb000/GAMES/NPEB00527 becomes /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527
6. Inside the [Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527 folder create a new folder called PS3_GAME eg. /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527/PS3_GAME
7. Now move all files inside /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527/ into the PS3_GAME folder.
8. Go back to your Game list and refresh it, the new game will appear
9. Mount the game
10. When kicked back to XMB start the game from App_home not the disc icon

Notes:

  • You don't always need to copy all files sometimes just creating the file structure and copying the eboot.bin and param.sfo is enough.
  • I also think the reverse maybe true for some other games that don't work copying only eboot.bin eg. leave behind only eboot.bin param.sfo TROPDIR in the /dev_hdd0/game folder.
  • Creating a shadow copy of the USRDIR may also work? Nope

Hello, i bought a ps3 with ode and i need to know where to start!

I read about Firmwares and i don't know what kind is mine... It's a 4.53, but i don't know if it's OFW or CFW ...

then, i think i need to install, for example, Habib CFW 4.53 right? Then, i need multiman for better experience right? Using showtime etc ...

I really don't know what to do, if i can upgrade firmware by software only or so ...

Can someone help me start please??

Thanks a lot

We have updated the 2.2 fw archives for Cobra ODE v5.30A with chipset "M2S010" to correct a problem which prevented updating from 2.1 to 2.2.

All 5.30A users should therefore update to 2.2 with this update.

Note: This UPDATE require 2 steps:

1: Copy "v5p30A10_step1.spi" to your USB key.

2: Rename file on USB key to "v5p30A10.spi" and use ("safely remove hardware") from windows.

3: Proceed with UPDATE. *Refer to Cobra_ODE_V5_Update_Process_(_README_FIRST_).pdf *

4: When process is done with "solid GREEN LED" then then remove USB key and (Unplug PS3 power cable).

5: Delete file on USB key and copy "v5p30A10_step2.spi" to this last.

6: Rename file on USB key to "v5p30A10.spi" and use ("safely remove hardware") from windows.

Also from Roor today comes an update to HCL - Humble Cobra Launcher as follows: Today I'm making the second release of HCL.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

Here are the most important changes in this version (HCL V0.2):

  • Graphical enhancements. Most glitches are fixed. Better Icons.
  • Better autodetection of PS1 and PS2 titles and covers.
  • Added File Manager in Tools section. Now you can copy/move/delete folders and files.
  • Added FTP Server in Tools section. Now you can access your PS3 through wifi using any FTP client, including Windows Explorer.
  • Integrated Showtime in Tools section. Just select it, and enjoy your movies.
  • Initial Disc Rip support in Tools section (doesn't work well yet, though).
  • Settings and stuff now are saved INSIDE your PS3 HDD. HCL remembers the last game you mounted, and loads faster.

Coming features (in following weekly updates):

  • Disc Ripper (fully functional).
  • PKG Installer (great progress has been made, but not stable enough for release yet)
  • Integration with some Emulators and Players.
  • Sound Effects.

In this opportunity, I'm posting some screenshots. Please write feedback. Cheers.

Update: HCL - Humble Cobra Laucher v0.3 by Roor

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror #2) / [Register or Login to view links] (HCL v0.3 without PS1 and PS2 Covers, and without Eleganz) / [Register or Login to view links] (HCL v0.3 removed the still unused 3 gamecode databases)

Hi. As promised (again), here's the third weekly update of HCL (Humble Cobra Launcher).

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 V0.3):

  • PKG Installer. (yes, you now can install demos, games and homebrews from PKG files - read bellow for further information).
  • Hex Viewer. Now you can open any file from the File Manager and have a look at its binary contents.
  • Better File Manager. Now it has icons, allows to execute .self files (correctly located and signed), install .pkg files and Hex Viewer.
  • Graphical enhancements. And better resolution backgrounds.
  • Faster load time. Once installed, HCL takes less than 8 seconds to start and allow access to your games!

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.
  • Integration with some Emulators.
  • Sound Effects.

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. This is because a "safety" measure I implemented that doesn't allow the installer to write over "already existing content" inside your PS3. This feature, after further investigation, might be added in next update.
  • You can install PKG from the File Manager. Just "select" it, and you will be asked if you want to install the file.
  • The PKG INSTALLER from TOOLS menu, will ask you to place the file you want to install in a USB Drive and it must be named INSTALL.PKG . Remember that the USB Drive must be formated as FAT32. Also, you can install the same file through the FILE MANAGER if you want (it's exactly the same internal procedure).
  • 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 install PS1, PS2 classics content and others. But the games will surely not work, because their licence is surely "not activated".
  • 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.

Please write feedback. Cheers.
