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.

I'm very surprised this hasn't been cloned yet!

I understand it's supposed to have some sort of on-board security, but since when has that stopped anyone

For those who own one, Cobra USB Firmware 3.1 is now released with the following changes:

Cobra Firmware 3.1 is out, minor release to fix bugs.

  • Fixed stability problems. Cobra users are advised to update to this firmware as soon as possible.
  • Fixed compatibility issue with Mortal Kombat.
  • Fixed PAL/NTSC issues in psx games.
  • Bugfix: some few specific psx titles such as Langrisser Final Edition wouldn't play in other regions.
  • Fixed a possible discless bug under very rare circumstances.
  • Cobra USB Manager can now understand the ".001, .002, ..." name convention used by hjsplit and other similar programs and rename them automatically to ".0, .1", name convention. Users can use hjsplit or any other similar tool to split iso files in the PC.
  • Added functionality to the core to implement a cobra firmware updater in the PS3.

As far as I know every PS3 model is capable of PSone emulation but not every model is PS2 backwards compatible.

Cobra USB however can enable PS2 emulation on every PS3.

Here is an update for Cobra USB users by johnnydoe of the Cobra USB v3.55 patched with Kmeaw features: ps3crunch.net/forum/threads/355-Cobra?p=3474#post3474

To quote: Hi everyone! i have patched the cobra firmware with the usual stuff like lv2 peek/poke etc both their core os files are patched so it should work with or without the dongle.

If you wanna unpack it and have a look or try it you can download it here: [Register or Login to view links]

From the ReadMe file: This is cobras 3.55 firmware patched with peak/poke for lv2 on both coreos files and the usual vsh/nas_plugin and install package file option.

Finally, confirmed by PS3 hacker Cyberskunk stating there: It is what it says it is but you would still need the dongle to use the cobra features. I have not installed it though..

I'm confused about this part. "Integrated support to play PS1 game ISO’s from HDD". Would this mean for backwards compatible PS3's on 3.55? I have one of the newer slims sadly lol.
