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.

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.
