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.

Below is some more Cobra ODE news and a warning, as follows:

24 - 6 - 2014: Cobra ODE News - Warning

PS3 ofw 4.60 has been released. All Cobra ODE users should avoid updating to 4.60 ofw until further notice.




















Note: This only works with the few games that don't need an update!

Cobra ODE 4.30A / MCU 2.1 / OFW 4.60 from Joonie86

Game with no update [1.00] Swap method works
Confirmed game: FFX HD Remaster

Game with update [1.01] Swap method doesn't work
Confirmed game: Beyond two souls.

Some of you may have noticed that all the videos of OFW 4.60 didn't use game updates. If these guys want to inform something, they should've made things clear.

However my 5.10 QSV doesn't work at all. [M2S025] board, currently stuck at a halfass FW [between 2.0-2.1] I can show you video proof at the end of the night, I tested three different systems with two boards [4.30A/5.10QSV] so do not update OFW 4.60 yet.

Update: CECH-4001C [US]

Cobra ODE 4.30A
MCU 2.1
OFW 4.60
bypass.4.55=1

Bootdisc = PES2008 / BLUS30111
Swapdisc = SONY BD-RE 25GB / RITEK-BW1-001

Games run fine with no update, 80010009 error with game update.

Interesting feature added on OFW 4.60 - You can update your game without launch (convenient but it would've been better if it was available on OFW 4.53 instead for users don't use bypass method).

CECH-4001C [US]

Cobra ODE 5.10 QSV [M2S025]
MCU 2.0
OFW 4.60
bypass.4.55=1

Bootdisc = PES2008 / BLUS30111
Swapdisc = SONY BD-RE 25GB / RITEK-BW1-001

It doesn't even make it to Swap disc, Red/blue flashing and then immediately fails,

Game with NO update = 80010017
Game with Update = 80010009

Soft-PT mode works fine. So, there is still hope, I guess Team Cobra can come up with better swap method to get around with game update issues.

24 - 6 - 2014: Cobra ODE News - Information

We are now accepting pre orders for the new 5.30A complete version of Cobra ODE pictured below, which supports PATA PHAT consoles, SATA PHAT and 2K/2K1 SATA consoles and 2K5,3K/4K SATA QSB consoles.

Finally, below is a Spoofing to Latest PS3 Firmware with PSN Patch for Cobra CFW's Tutorial from atreyu187 (via psx-scene.com/forums/f339/tutorial-123454/)

So Sony pushed out another update and your waiting on a spoofer? Why wait when you have the tools to spoof and be right back online with Cobra CFW's. Simply locate your "psnpatch.cfg" which can be located in these places

  • dev_usb000:/
  • dev_hdd0:/games/BLJS10018
  • dev_hdd0:/games/PSNP11001

Open it with notepad or any text editor and changed the highlighted field to the latest firmware version out by Sony or higher like 9.98 to avoid accidental updates but don't go above Sony's latest version to go online. The reason for not using 9.99 is it will allow downgrading PUP's to still work in case of emergency as they are set to 9.99

Here is a follow-up from magneto to the previous Cobra ODE 2.1 Public Beta for those interested:

We are releasing a public beta for the 2.1 firmware which is soon to be released. This beta is for v4.20, v4.30 and v5.10 boards only. Unfortunately, we are still finalizing the FPGA images for v3.x boards. You can download the beta from here: v2.1_beta.rar
For v4 board users, make sure you flash both FPGA images correctly.

For v5 board users, you MUST update to the 2.0 firmware before using this beta. If you did not update to 2.0 already, then the 2.0 firmware file is included in the beta archive.

Update 1: The beta image in the above file will not work on v5.x boards. Please use this beta file instead: [Register or Login to view links]

Here is the changelog:

  • FPGA1 : Fix timing issues in AES core
  • FPGA3 : Improve stability
  • Fix encryption issues causing 80010017 errors for v3, v4 and v5 boards
  • Fix bypass method for MPX001 motherboards
  • Fix issue when BD-RE disc is detected in drive
  • Added support for bypass.delay option (default is 10000 in milliseconds)
  • Enable mcu.underclock by default
  • Set default manager type to browser
  • Enable eject.on_selection by default
  • Enable eject.add_menu by default

Small changes are required, the browser, eject on selection, eject add menu and underclock are enabled by default, so in order to disable them you would need to use: mcu.underclock=0 or eject.add_menu=0 for example in cobra.cfg

Update 2: 2.1 Beta 9 Files: Link 1 (mediafire): [Register or Login to view links] / Link 2 (dropbox - mirror): [Register or Login to view links]

Comment: Both mediafire and dropbox files are identical one is just a mirror ...

Update procedure:

1. First update the .spi in the FPGA folder (reboot the ODE after the flash, it will finish after the reboot).
2. Then update the .spi in the root folder.
3. If you brick it, unbrick it with the procedure here: [Register or Login to view links]
4. Try step 1 and 2 again... (also some users and me (DarkKitarist) first updated to 2.0 from the official site and then updated to 2.1 beta 9)

Update 3: 14 - 6 - 2014 Cobra ODE News - Update

We are proud to present the 2.1 release, firstly we're updating the firmware to Improve stability and performance as well as fix bypass method not working for some PS3 models and we have made the Cobra browser the default game manager as well as displaying the firmware version in the browser and added new configuration options.

We haven now updated the bypass tools, the genps3swapdisc tool will now be able to update an existing swap disc when new eboots are added to it and previously converted isos will not need to be re-converted for the new swap disc. The EBOOT folder has also been updated, now with 5760 total eboots files.

The database has also been updated, and The user manual has now been updated illustrating new
config options.

A small number of 5.1B early production boards had a manufacturing issue which caused them to corrupt data and the PS3 would show an error when trying to run games.

We are releasing an update specifically for those boards which have issues and which should fix the problem, although we cannot guarantee every board will be fixed by the update. We recommend anyone with a defective board to return it for replacement after making sure the issue they are experiencing is caused by a defective board.

If the normal 2.1 firmware does not work for you and you get error 80010017 or 80010007 in the XMB, but the error disappears after you use the special 2.1 firmware for defective boards, then your board has the defect and you can request a replacement.

Cobra ODE 2.1 (Non-Beta) Changelog:

  • FPGA 1 : Fix AES encryption timing issues causing some encryption errors
  • FPGA 3 : Improve stability
  • V5.x boards : Update USB driver
  • V5.x boards : Fix race condition on USB reads causing error
  • Add support for bypass.delay configuration option
  • Add support for folders.ps3_games configuration option
  • Add support for folders.ps2_games configuration option
  • Add support for folders.ps1_games configuration option
  • Add support for folders.bd_movies configuration option
  • Add support for folders.dvd_movies configuration option
  • Fix issue with uninitialized configuration on ODE boot causing software pass-through mode to be enabled by default until valid HDD is inserted
  • Change default manager type to browser
  • Set eject.on_selection=1 option as default
  • Set eject.add_menu=1 option as default
  • Set mcu.underclock=1 option as default
  • Fix issue of disc not showing if PS3 boots with a BD-RE disc in tray
  • Display firmware version in XMB when using the browser
  • Fix bypass method freezing for 4k systems with MPX001 motherboards

Downloads:


Finally, from Joonie86: Here's the important files of swap disc tool, I just created a new swap iso files.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

Path: D:\
891de28e99a099034174676fb4346ab2 SWAP.iso 150.0 MB (157,286,400)

TOTAL: 1 files - 150.0 MB (157,286,400 bytes)

This is really small and fast, I'm currently testing if all my previous ISOs are OK with new swap disc I just burnt. I'll also try different bootdisc as well without conversion.
