What's new in multiMAN 04.06.00:

  • multiMAN celebrates 2 years. CONGRATULATIONS!
  • Added support for 4.21CFW (CEX) (syscall 6-10 required):
  • "Standard" BD-Emulator option (sc36) (Hermes not supported yet)
  • Direct Disc Access (LV1&LV2 patched for Storage Manager access)
  • Raw access to optical media (PS1 backups & Showtime access to BD/DVD/CDs)
  • BD-Movie Region Changer
  • BD-Mirror for INT/EXT games

! Not fully tested with Red Power's 4.21CFW (Hermes payload used and syscall 1021 required)

What's new in multiMAN 04.06.01:

  • Added support for 4.21CFW (DEX) (syscalls 6-7 required):
  • "Standard" BD-Emulator option (sc36)
  • BD-Mirror for external / USB games

Finally, below are some related comments on the multiMAN v04.06.00 update as follows:

From Lightyear: multiMAN has supported 4.21 for a LONG time. now it's just CEX 4.21 support... it's really not that different. and deank releasing mm that supports 4.21 does NOT mean a completely 3rd party scene group is working on a new 4.21 CFW! they are not even working with dean... they have their own backup manager, according to their posts. *facepalm*

FWIW, multiman automatically worked on 4.21... dean didn't change anything to make that happen. someone just tested it out and realized it worked. just like PSX support. that was just a native thing that someone just "discovered" was working one day.

From deank: I see no mentions of DEX in the "What's new"/change log, quite the contrary. And - no - the mM update server is not hacked.

I just woke up and read some posts about some chinese shtty dongle for 4.21... Just to make it clear - the mM update has nothing to do with it and doesn't need a dongle if used with 4.21cfw. It is a pure speculation I guess, because there are a lot of people around who won't allow another dongle to surface anyway. I don't believe that their dongle (which I doubt it exists at all) will see the light of any day!

Why do you ask me about their stuff? I don't know any of them nor do I know what they're going to do. Someone leaked a file from their 'promo system' (the eboot.bin they use to launch that old multiMAN version), I took a look at it, I saw what patches they use for 4.21 and implemented some of them in mM and added syscall36. As simple as that - that way nothing is hidden in 'their system/manager' and is available in the regular public mM version. I know for sure that their firmware uses hermes because I saw how the payload and stuff is loaded in that leaked eboot.bin, hence I mentioned it in mM's changelog.

I already posted what I think few pages back. In addition to that - I think it will be a huge mistake if they decide to sell dongles.

I added some additional checks to make mM recognize when it is running on peek/poke-enabled 4.21CFW. Then it adds syscall36 just like it does on 3.55, which means that games should work without patching.

When asked why update MM to a hypothetical 4.21 his reply was quite arrogantly: Because I can, no other reason.

Also from deank when asked why 4.21 CFW support was listed if not fully tested yet: Ah, just don't tell me what and where I should put.

Finally a few weeks later he partially comes clean, revealing what used to be open source code and making the following statement for those interested.

Today several users have confirmed that Netflix is working again on JailBroken (Backwards Compatible) PS3 consoles with a PS2 Netflix Disk (SLUS21949) via Cobra USB for those who own the device.

To quote from: ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/884-Netflix?p=8148#post8148:

Nodieza: So I was on Blackcats checking out the new releases and I came across a "PS2 netflix disk" uploaded by a fellow Blackcats member named mredfield.

So I gave it a shot on my Cobra USB enabled PS3 and sure enough.... it works! Yes it's lacking all the HD glory of the PS3 version but it works!

Apparently this is a very rare disk so I shall upload it for all to enjoy.

"This is verified a legit release from Brazil. I called netflix today and talked on the phone. They said netflix for ps2 is available only in Brazil which is why no info is available, this means it isnt a hack, it wont steal info, ect."

It's also a padded ISO so don't be surprised by the extraction size. Also I am assuming this will only work on PS3's with native PS2 support.

It's hard for me to tell because I have my NTSC PS3 hooked up to a computer monitor (as far as I can tell it's staying at 60hz). I didn't have to do a Y Fix pal conversion on the iso or anything like I've had to do on some PAL games... so I assume it should work on any NTSC tv.

Also for those wondering I live in North America and my Netflix account works fine despite it being a Brazilian based Netflix disk. And everything is in English.

lukethomasx: I can also confirm this working on my fat NTSC ceche PlayStation 3 with my American netflix account. Thank you very much for the heads up +1

For those who own one, Cobra USB Firmware 3.2 and 3.3 are now released with the following changes: 05 - 09 - 2011

Cobra Firmware v3.2 More Features and bugs fixed:

  • Added support for PS2 backups in optical discs (CD-R/DVD+-R)
  • PS2 original games are now region free too.
  • Fixed a bug that caused incompatibility with several PS2 backups in iso format.
  • Fixed some remaining PAL/NTSC problems in PSX games.
  • Cobra USB Manager will output now a mds file too when dumping a dual layer DVD or PS2-DVD. This file is not used by Cobra at all, but it can be used for burning to a dual layer DVD+-R while keeping original layer structure. This is mandatory when burning dual layer PS2 dvd's.

Cobra Firmware v3.3

  • Fixed a bug introduced in 3.2 that made some systems unstable when starting a PSX game.

Easy Cobra USB v3.3 Installer

Easy Cobra USB Updater v3.3 Installer (MOD) for Noobs. Cobra USB is for PS3 Jailbreak OFW3.41 or MFW COBRA 3.55 PUP.

I would buy this if JFW wasn't being made.

They must have some real talent onboard their team, considering the features they have with it, and the water tight security (so far) on the device. I'm also very surprised that it hasn't been cloned yet as its been ages.

Maybe everybody waiting for the jailcrab-dh firmware and maybe no one moved to clone it.
