multiMAN 04.15.00 Changelog: This is only an UPDATE version (you need 04.14.00/04.15.00 BASE or FULL installed).

  • Updated PC application "ps3netsrv" to support fast folder-data retrieval
  • Greatly improved loading of remote /net_host folders (up to 4096 entries in mmOS and 2048 in other modes)
  • Greatly improved loading of remote Retro ROMs folders with covers
  • Added support to access remote PS3 system in mmOS or in game modes via /net_host
  • You can access all data of a remote PS3 to view/play photo/music/video files, transfer files/folders (and load ISO games/movies PS3/PSX/DVD/BD if used with Cobra CFW)
  • Added option in "Settings" - "Connect to Another PS3" - it allows full remote control (screen/pad) of another PS3 running multiMAN 04.15.00 and later
  • Added option in "Settings" - "Remote Access Permissions" (Disable/Files/Screen/Full) to restrict remote connnections to your PS3
  • Added support for mmRAS - PC application by Aldo (aldostools) which allows remote access to your PS3 (screen/pad) while running multiMAN
  • Screenshot feature in multiMAN (START+R2) will now save screens as JPEG.

The key features of this release:

  • The improved PC ps3netsrv application allows much faster access speeds when retrieving data from folders in mmOS or when browsing photo/music/video/ROMs from remote /net_host. You can now browse a remote folder with roms+covers and it takes a fraction of the time it took before.
  • The Remote Access feature allows you to connect to another PS3 anywhere in the world (be it in the other room or across the country) and copy files/folders, play Retro ROMs, view photos and play music and video files (after caching)
  • The Remote Access Control (PS3) feature allows you to connect to another PS3 running multiMAN and view its screen and control it with your pad. It allows you to minimize the current session and work with your own PS3 (to transfer files to the remote PS3 for example) and then return to the other PS3.
  • The Remote Access Control (PC) feature via aldostools mmRAS client allows you to connect to your PS3 (or any other PS3 around the world running multiMAN) from your PC. You can change the encoding quality of the picture, take screenshots in JPG (PrintScreen button) and control the PS3 with your keyboard and mouse. Click the [?] button for more information of the keyboard mappings.
  • The option in "Settings" (Remote Access Permissions) allows you to configure the access to your PS3. You can completely "Disable" it, you can allow remote connections only to access your "Files", you can restrict it only to remote control "Screen" or allow "Full" access for files and screen control.
  • The Remote Access Control provides 960x540 resolution (it doesn't depend on the remote PS3 resolution). The best results/quality and fastest response is achieved when server PS3 is running in 1920x1080.
  • To be able to use these features you have to configure your remote peers in "Settings" -> "Network Servers".
  • Any configured /net_host can be used for file access (PC and PS3) and for remote control (PS3)
  • If you are connecting to a PC you must have ps3netsrv application running on the PC side
  • If you wish to restrict access to your PS3 - change the setting in "Remote Access Permissions"
  • If you wish to connect to another PS3 configured as /net_host - use the "Connect to Another PS3" function in "Settings"

While connected to another PS3 you can 'minimize' the connection and work with your own PS3 and then resume the remote control. You will see the live minimized remote screen in the lower corner. To switch between local/remote control use [START]+[SQUARE].

To terminate a connection to a remote PS3 use [START]+[CIRCLE]. All other buttons you press will be sent to the remote PS3.

MANY thanks to aldostools for creating the PC application to connect to a remote-control-enabled PS3.

From aldostools comes a quick tutorial, as follows:

0- Run PARAM.SFO Edit.exe as Administrator to associate .SFO/.SFX extensions. Close it.
1- Backup your save data folder to a USB storage device (/PS3/SAVEDATA) or download them to the PC from /dev_hdd/home/0000000x/savedata via FTP
2- Backup your savedata folder in a ZIP/RAR/7z (just in case you make a mistak and corrupt your saves)
3- Start the Bruteforce and browse to your local savedata folder
4- Browse to a savedata with your account id and "Use PARAM.SFO as template" (you can do this manually copying the PARAM.SFO as "template.sfo" into the folder of Bruteforce)
5- Browse to a savedata with a foreign account id.
6- If the game has a key in the database it will be displayed, otherwise you will need to bruteforce it double clicking on the game and providing the ELF of the game (EBOOT or another self)
7- Once you have the key for the savedata to be resigned, press "Update Account ID" to update the PARAM.SFO with the account id in the template.
8- Press "Patch SFO" if the game is copy protected (it says YES in the Protected column)
9- Select all the files from the PFD using Ctrl+A and press "Decrypt PFD"
10- Use "Update PFD (Partial)" or "Update PFD (Partial update without Game setting) to update the hashes in the PFD. If you have the disc_hash_key for the game, you can use "Updae PFD (Full)".
11- Once the PFD is updated, select all files usingCtrl+A and press "Encrypt PFD"
12- Press "Verify PFD" to check if everything is OK.
13- Copy the resigned savedata to a USB storage device (/PS3/SAVEDATA) or transfer them from the PC to /dev_hdd/home/0000000x/savedata via FTP

Finally, from M@tsumot0: nice job master, i waiting for update STEALH version.

Put [Register or Login to view links] to your root usb go to install package file (Rogero 4.30 v2.03) on "APP_HOME/PS3_GAME" and push start for update your multiman 04.14.XX STEALTH to 04.15.00 STEALTH.

Enjoy.

19 - 8 - 2014: Cobra ODE News - Update, Cobra ODE v2.2 Released

We are happy to release the 2.2 update for all Cobra versions including the 5.1B and 5.3A PCB revisions V5.x boards, we have increased USB read speeds by 40%* and further improved the success rate of swapping discs for the bypass.

Furthermore, we have added support for 4.60 ofw bypass and new bypass tools (applicable to all Cobra ODE versions v3.x, 4.x and 5.x)

We have also added a another nice features, auto region patching for psx games.

Various fixes for stability and configuration have been added, please refer to the changelog in the mcu update folder.

V5.30A users please note that a bug has been fixed in the 2.1 firmware which caused ISO's not to load if the drive door was not toggled open and then closed. Please ensure you update to the 2.2 Cobra ODE fw asap.

We have now successfully bypassed 4.60 ofw on older PS3 consoles (PATA, SATA FAT, 2k, 2k5 and 3k models). An additional hardware module (Cobra DMC) is required and will be sold bundled with 5.10B or 5.3A versions of the Cobra ODE.

The Cobra DMC hardware module also supports in tradition with Cobra philosophy all previous versions of the Cobra ODE (V3.x and 4.x) hardware and may be purchased from your local reseller soon.

Resellers may contact us at: [email]sales@team-cobra-ode.com[/email] to order the additional Cobra DMC hardware modules.

The cobra 2.3 firmware will be released simultaneously with release of the DMC hardware module.

Photo's of the Cobra DMC will follow next week.

NOTE: Cobra ODE v3.x and 4.x users already on 2.1 firmware can ignore the FPGA update files.

cobra.cfg Config Tool v2.2 by SDeath

I have made a new program for you guys so you can create the cobra.cfg in a few easy steps. It is setup with default settings and you can just click the options you want.

I have 2 sections, Basic Settings and Advanced Settings, only use the Advanced settings if you where told to do so by a member with more experience or if you know what you are doing.

All options have tooltips if you want to know more about what they do. By default the following is set:

  • COBRA Browser
  • Eject Disc On selection in Browser/Manager
  • Add "Return to Manager" in XMB
  • MCU Underclock

For users on a 4k and on OFW 4.55 and everybody else on OFW 4.60 enable that option too in the basic settings. If you want to use the Manager just enable that.

After setting the right settings press Generate and select the destination of the cobra.cfg so the COBRA folder on the external HDD, if it already exist it will be overwritten.

v2.2 Changelog:

  • Added support for the latest config options introduced in firmware 2.2, 2.1 and 2.0.
  • Changed version number to the same as the firmware version it reflects.

Tutorial: How to Prepare the HDD (with Preconfigured Packages) by SDeath

To make things easy for you I have setup 3 pre-configured HDD packages to prepare your HDD, this way you are sure all the needed files are there on the HDD.

The Packages:

  • HDD Package 2.2 Browser Stealth* (recommended): [Register or Login to view links]
  • HDD Package 2.2 Browser SuperStealth*: [Register or Login to view links]
  • HDD Package 2.2 Manager: [Register or Login to view links]

*Stealth will show the COBRA Browser in the Games and Video section of the XMB, SuperStealth will only show the COBRA Browser in the Video section.

All 3 packages include the Browser and the Manager, from update 2.0 onward it's very easy to switch between the two, just a small edit in the cobra.cfg. The differences between the packages is just how the cobra.cfg is setup. The Manager now also supports disc dumping so that's why I think it should also be included in the Browser packages.

Instructions:

01 - Download one of the above packages.
02 - Extract the contents to the root of the HDD.
03 - Copy the games to the folder PS3_GAMES.
04 - Adjust the cobra.cfg to your needs, since FW 2.1 most used options like Return to Manager and Eject On Selection are enabled by default, the other options like 4.55 or LED disable you need to adjust yourself.
05 - Safe eject the HDD and connect to the external PCB USB port.
Done!

Tips:

If you downloaded one of my Browser packages you can switch easily to the manager by changing this line:

To this:

And if you used my Manager package you have to do the revers to switch to the Browser so change this line:

Changelog v2.2:

  • Updated to the new 2.2 firmware, the packages also include the files for PSX auto region patching

File versions used:

  • Firmware 2.2
  • Browser/Manager 1.6
  • cobra.db 14-06-2014

Cobra ODE FW 2.2 Beta by magneto is now available with details below, as follows:

We are releasing a beta firmware for the version 2.2 of the Cobra ODE.

You will need to have the 2.1 firmware before applying this update, and we are only releasing the mcu.rom image for v3.x and v4.x boards at this time. We will release the update for v5.x boards once we release the final 2.2 version.

This update will make your Cobra ODE work with the 4.60 firmware for PS3 superslim 4k models, including games that have been updated.

Instructions:

  • Download and run extractps3swapfiles: [Register or Login to view links]
  • Download and run genps3swapdisc: [Register or Login to view links]
  • Burn the swap disc to a BD-R or BD-RE disc.
  • Download and run convertps3iso on each of your ISO files: [Register or Login to view links]
  • Download and install the 2.2 Beta firmware for v3.x and v4.x boards: [Register or Login to view links]
  • Edit the cobra.cfg file and add the following lines:

[Register or Login to view code]

Test your games. If you have installed an update to a game, this firmware will still allow you to run the game, but you will need to swap the discs twice.

If you have any issues, report back here so we can fix them before release. If it works without any problems, let us know as well.

To everyone complaining about the swap method for older models: The Cobra Team has been working hard to give you a solution in order to keep playing online and keep using the ODE. Online capabilities were never guaranteed, and no one is being forced to buy a BD burner.

If it is too expensive for you, then you can stay on 4.55 and enjoy your ODE, or you can update to 4.60 and enjoy online. If you want to enjoy both, then the Cobra Team has a solution for you, it is your choice whether or not to use that solution.

Remember that online play was never guaranteed and the anti-ODE security measures introduced in 4.60 were added by Sony to protect their intellectual property, it is not Cobra's fault. You may be disappointed, but that is out of our control.

Will there be any reason to update to Firmware 2.2 for 4k system owners on non-4.60 OFW? Are there any additional improvements other than 4.60 compatibility?

Yes, firmware 2.2 adds other improvements such as:

  • Increase USB read speeds by 40% for v5.x boards (now over 16.5MB/s)
  • Better swap disc reliability for some brands of BD-R
  • Fix a bug in PS1 game mounting
  • Add support for automatic region patching of PS1 games
  • Fix PS2 games and BD movies support when manager.on_reboot option is enabled
