To quote: Getting PlayStation 2 Software Emulator working

Method (on Firmware 3.55, without! Cobra-USB Dongle or Downgrade) for all consoles (fat & slim).

1. Replace following files on your consoles /dev_flash/ with the ones included in this archive p3dwik-ps2compatfiles.rar
2. Get into Factory Service Mode (FSM Tool/Dongle)
3. Insert your Original PS2 Game Disc
4. It will run.

Note: Backups won't work. You're getting the compatibility of the 2.60 software emulator with all of its bugs.

A possible compatibility lists:

  • ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Talk:Emulation#PS2.2FPStwo

PS2 Compat. flag

All consoles have hardware information. In GameOS you can call Lv2 Syscall 393 (0x189) sys_sm_get_model to get your consoles information. In Lv1/Hypervisor its in the repository nodes sc 0x5B lv1_get_repository_node with Parameters "sys","hw","config" usually noded as "sys.hw.config#0" or something.

Result examples:

In binary formation:

XMB checks this flag and if == 0, it will give following message: "This model of the PS3 system is not compatible with PlayStation 2 format software."

Those interested in running PS2 games on their PS3 console may also wish to check out the previous Open PS2 Loader v0.8 for PS3, PS3 USBLD Loader Source Code and USBAdvn Patcher and PS2 HDD Support & Discless ELF Launching from PS3 XMB articles as well.

Hi I just make a debug app that use some syscalls to do a reset into PS2 Lpar like boot_ps2 does, it should work on dex 4.11 or 4.20 but in these fw there is ps2 netemu instead of softemu so i need someone with an original disc of playstation 2 inserted on bd-drive and launch this test app and see what happens.

I am on 4.11 DEX but i don't have any original disc from PS2... This is basically the same thing that boot_ps2 does on 3.55 but there is a new emu file on dex 4.11 or 4.20 introduced on 3.70 with the use of PS2 Classics on PSN... This is not brick-risk, thanks to anyone who help me with this. Greetings...





1st - Download the file
2nd - Copy the file PS2 Evo v1.0.pkg to the root of a USB drive formated in FAT32
3rd - Install the .pkg from *Install Package Files*
4th - Insert a original PS2 disk on the BD
5th - Run the app and enjoy

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.

The Cobra 5.30A complete will be sold in parallel with Cobra 5.10B QSV version.

Resellers can reserve their pre-order qty's by e-mail.

  • Added multiMAN priority ON/OFF
  • Added Newer custom icons for webMAN (plus brunolee's folder icons)
  • Added aldostools newest XMBM+ Mod

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
