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

# PSNPATCH Configuration File

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.

Hey guys!

Recently I bought PS3 Slim 12 GB and installed the latest version of Cobra ODE. What I didn't know when buying my PS3 was the fact that most of the games will install files to your internal HDD even if you run those games from CD or from your external HDD as in the case with Cobra ODE.

Is there any hacker solution to change the location of game data to the external HDD or to avoid the installation of game data at all?
