To quote, roughly translated: Good friends here I leave the last revision PS2Classic with the new changes and additions by me with the help of Flatz and aldo.

PS2Classic Final Changelog:

  • ISO9660 Check
  • LIMG Support (Check / Creation)
  • VMC Decryption / Encryption fixed with the help of flatz by making new py script to rehash stuff so i can port it and now without. the need to use a root key to encrypt or decrypt your vmc's, thanks to aldo too by helping me in the process.
  • Now you see the progress being maded by decryption or encryption, so is more easy to wait.

It will rehash every change in the blocks and now it should work. About encrypting and decrypting ISO.BIN.ENC or CONFIG nothing changes about user commands because all the change was internal, so is the same.

If you don't want to use this cmd version is better to wait to the new version of Aldo Gui tool because it will have this added and some better gui improvements. Thanks to flatz, aldo and many others helping in the process.

Here also included something for those who want to modify or ripearlas isos more easily and are functional in the PS3. The process is very easy and simple using Expert 1.3 since the 2.0 version tends to have flaws with these images ISO9660 corrupting and ends.

Ripping or modification of any PS2 game

1. Crack the ps2classic ISO.BIN.ENC with great command line or GUI aldo.
2. Expert Runs 1.03 and continues to work the following order:

  • Extract LBA
  • Extract files (It will extract every file from the game in a folder with the iso name)

Now you can make your changes to the game(But obviusly you cannot just delete stuff because the LBA has an order you need to make some dummy file and rename it to the file you want to delete for example), you can mod everything too if the game have some modding tools for sure like gta sa, vc, etc.

  • Rebuild files (Now it will make a ISO with the game folder extracted previusly modified)
  • Rebuild LBA

3. Just encrypt that Game ISO modified with new tools like this new ps2classic command line tool or with new Aldo gui Ps2classic tool with new changes (Because this tools will now remake the LIMG section too). Now use the new ISO.BIN.ENC on the PS3 and check your changes.

Greetings

From CrUmp comes a PS2 ISO Renaming Tool called PS3CTool v1 (linked above) for PS2Classic v 1.0 with details below, as follows:

I only test with my mac. if you install python 2.7 on windows this should work too. i don't know if it's ok to put key file in this, so I didn't include it. put your ps2.key file in the same location, and include this folder in your $PATH like:

PS2 ISO Renaming Tool for PS2classic v 1.0 - PS3Classic: To encrypt PS2 ISO to PS2Classic image.

The best way to play your PS2 games on your PS3 console is to convert them into PS2 Classic Games. With Multiman and PS2Classic container, you can have unlimited PS2ISOs loaded into your PS3. With [gameID] Game Title naming convention, Multiman will download the game cover if avaliable.

This tool finds gameID from within PS2ISO, and compare with online database to rename the ISO file names

This script works with ps2classic command line tool to make it more convenience to convert mass ISOs.

21 - 8 - 2014: Cobra ODE News - Update

We have updated the 2.2 fw archives to correct errors in the names of the update files for Cobra ODE ver 5.30A and files relating to PSX auto patching. The PDF for 5.xx board include in archive have been updated as well. We have also updated the user manual to reflect these changes.

Users kindly ensure that update files should be named as follow for 5.30A Hardware:

Chipset M2S010 file name should be v5p30A10.spi or Chipset M2S025 file name should be v5p30A25.spi

Also from Roor comes HCL - Humble Cobra Laucher with details below as follows:

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

Hi. Since last week I've been working on my own Cobra Manager. I begun it because I wanted a fast-loading, easy to use Manager for my games; that I feel comfortable with.

It is still "under development" but it already does all what the official Cobra Manager does, more and in a faster way.

If someone is interested in testing, please let me know and I'll send you a first "private" beta tomorrow night. I'm quite limited in testings, as I only have one PS3. So it has only been tested with Cobra ODE 4.30A in my Slim PS3.

I'm posting some pictures I took with my phone last night (my screenshot capability is zero right now).

Thanks in advance,

Roor.

Update: Hi. After being tested by some users, I'm releasing my first version of HCL (Humble Cobra Launcher).

Basically another homebrew that works in the line like SonicMan, Cobra Manager, GameSonic and similar.

It was created during last week, and designed specifically for Cobra ODE. My plan is to make a couple of weekly releases until I find myself satisfied with the product; and then to make updates from time to time based on new Cobra ODE releases and features.

In order to use it, just place the manager.iso file in your COBRA folder, and make sure to set your Cobra.cfg to use homebrew.

If you have a PS3 Slim, like me, I recommend setting your EJECT.DELAY=10000 in Cobra.Cfg and set your PS3 to to auto start games when discs are inserted.

Here are the current features (HCL V0.1):

  • Compatible with the latest Cobra MCU.
  • Very fast loading times, compared to other Managers.
  • PS1 and PS2 game covers included. (covers are autodetected based on GameVolume name. Will be improved later).
  • Separate menus for every Cobra flavour : PS1, PS2, PS3, DVD and BLURAY.
  • Many integrated tools (disabled on this first release).
  • As stealth as possible. HCL is recognized as "PS MOVE STARTER PACK". And doesn't touch PS3 HDD at all.
  • Cache mode: If you plug a FAT32 formated USB Drive, Covers, Icons and even Cobra's Fodlers are cached into your USB. It takes a bit longer the first time, but it makes HCL boot a lot faster from then on.
  • Some graphical glitches, which will be fixed on next release.

Future features (weekly updates expected):

  • File Browser (ready right now, but being tested).
  • Disc Ripper (ready right now, but being improved with "multithreading" in order to make it even faster).
  • PKG Installer (still under study)
  • Integration with some Emulators and Players.
  • Automatic detection of PS1 and PS2 covers (right now you need to set the "disc names" to the name code, in order to get this working).
  • Save Settings and Cache inside PS3 HDD (once it is considered stealth enough).
  • Sound Effects.
  • Graphical Enhancements.
  • Faster navigation.

Please write feedback.

Cheers.

i was attemp to play Sengoku Basara 4 but the game seem to be not working and freezed at the loading screen. after that, my friend told me to go to game setting menu in multiman's game selection screen and tick all the choices at the left except BD Mirror, Discboot and USB patch.

i then booted the game at xbm screen and the screen showed a bunch of japanese and cannot process further so i quit the game. after i quit the game, i couldn't find my multiman icon anymore.

now i am stuck and cannot play any games at the moment. Is there anyway to fix this ?

Update: i installed multiman and sorted out the problem.

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:

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

File versions used:

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