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:

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.

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

Another update from PS3 scene profiteers Max Louarn and Gary Wayne Bowser (GaryOPA): Cobra ODE - Shipping This Week to Resellers

Cobra ODE is shipping to resellers this week.

At the same time we feel it necessary to bring to the public's attention that some competitors are spreading lies and attempting to bully customers into purchasing their products. We have remained pretty quiet on these issues until now. However when the competition stoops too low, then its time to set a few things straight

Firstly, to say that Cobra ODE will be "easily blocked" is a very untrue. From time to time an update may be required to our product to ensure best performance and compatibility. We fully expect to roll out frequent updates to our product, which is the very reason our hardware platform is upgradable.

Whilst the competition uses a different approach to us, and this may or may not be less visible to big brother, it is also less flexible and relies on a database of titles in order to play the desired ISO. If your desired ISO is not in their database, then you are unable to play it...

Cobra ODE does not have this restriction. You can play an ISO without the need for it to be in a database...

Furthermore, much noise is being made about wifi connectivity, which requires a wifi dongle on the competing product. Remote control via wifi and even bluetooth of our UI could be made possible in the future through a homebrew web server running on any PS3 (including 2K5/3K and 4k) via our ODE platform, without the need for a wifi dongle.

There are many reasons to purchase Cobra ODE, including the fact that we support both PATA and SATA consoles with a single device as opposed to a range of adapters, and not forgetting that we have an easier install on 2k5/3k and 4k consoles.

As for HW based AES encryption, we support AES encryption and decryption in hardware on our Smart Fusion device as well as a bunch of other neat features.

Cobra ODE is not a cheap device, granted. However one only has to look at the number and calibre of components used to realize that we offer a flexible, feature packed and versatile platform, which is what you'd expect from the Cobra Team.

In my case,
1. dump the EID0 key on CFW 3.55 and flash on CFW 3.55
2. change the region
3. flash it with multiman 355CEXFLASH.EID0.NANDBIN or 355CEXFLASH.EID0.NORBIN
4. profit

suggest : if you on CFW 3.55, flash it with multiman 04.04.04base

Try rename to: CEX-EID0.NANDBIN.BIN or CEX.EID0.NANDBIN {EID0 ~ use zero}

Hey guys, I am trying to change the IDPS in flash for my PS3. I dumped the EID0 key in 3.55 then reupdated to 4.46 rogero. I dumped my flash successfully via multiman, then used the IDPS Changer application and patched my flash with a new console ID and a new MAC address, and no errors were given. The new IDPS I had a different region, console model and check, so I changed those bytes to reflect my original values in the banned IDPS.

I tried to reflash my patched dump in MULTIMAN, and I named the dump to CEX-FLASH.FULL.EID0.NANDBIN , but multiman complains that the dump is not compatible with the system. What gives? Can anybody help me out? Thanks.

How can I load psn games off usb? I Don't have the original pkg files. Just the folders in usb. I last the icons which game data mode used to work ie the swap between broken grey icons in hdd mode and the proper ones when in usb mode.

I tried adding ps3_game to the folder path and moving only file in the then the folders too, also tried direct boot and/or bdmirror but I always get unsupported data for the bluray disk

Just the 4.40.00 Base Cex is fine over 4.20.00 Full. No need for 4.40.0 cex.

Yes it works on 4.46 CFW, that is the reason deank updated multiman to 4.46.01

Any help would be great.

That's because Deank uses his own server for updates. May or may not be working or slow because many users.
