  • The PSN games that require a compatible NPDRM 3.56 without updating.
  • Executables do not need to be signed.

And the video of JFW DH: The video shows the personal side with a CFW Coldboot / Soundboot changed and a new category "RetroLaunch" Minis are supported and saves them (PS1/PS2 games and their backups will also be part of this category).

Those who wondered what the icon is black "JaiCraB", it must match the Firm USB Loader. DemonHades invites us to participate in their topic in order to advance the project as still no publication date.

I read about Firmwares and i don't know what kind is mine... It's a 4.53, but i don't know if it's OFW or CFW ...

We have updated the 2.2 fw archives for Cobra ODE v5.30A with chipset "M2S010" to correct a problem which prevented updating from 2.1 to 2.2.

All 5.30A users should therefore update to 2.2 with this update.

Download: Cobra ODE Firmware v2.2 Fixed2

Note: This UPDATE require 2 steps:

1: Copy "v5p30A10_step1.spi" to your USB key.

2: Rename file on USB key to "v5p30A10.spi" and use ("safely remove hardware") from windows.

3: Proceed with UPDATE. *Refer to Cobra_ODE_V5_Update_Process_(_README_FIRST_).pdf *

4: When process is done with "solid GREEN LED" then then remove USB key and (Unplug PS3 power cable).

5: Delete file on USB key and copy "v5p30A10_step2.spi" to this last.

6: Rename file on USB key to "v5p30A10.spi" and use ("safely remove hardware") from windows.

Also from Roor today comes an update to HCL - Humble Cobra Launcher as follows: Today I'm making the second release of HCL.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

Here are the most important changes in this version (HCL V0.2):

  • Graphical enhancements. Most glitches are fixed. Better Icons.
  • Better autodetection of PS1 and PS2 titles and covers.
  • Added File Manager in Tools section. Now you can copy/move/delete folders and files.
  • Added FTP Server in Tools section. Now you can access your PS3 through wifi using any FTP client, including Windows Explorer.
  • Integrated Showtime in Tools section. Just select it, and enjoy your movies.
  • Initial Disc Rip support in Tools section (doesn't work well yet, though).
  • Settings and stuff now are saved INSIDE your PS3 HDD. HCL remembers the last game you mounted, and loads faster.

Coming features (in following weekly updates):

  • Disc Ripper (fully functional).
  • PKG Installer (great progress has been made, but not stable enough for release yet)
  • Integration with some Emulators and Players.
  • Sound Effects.

In this opportunity, I'm posting some screenshots. Please write feedback. Cheers.

Update: HCL - Humble Cobra Laucher v0.3 by Roor

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror #2) / [Register or Login to view links] (HCL v0.3 without PS1 and PS2 Covers, and without Eleganz) / [Register or Login to view links] (HCL v0.3 removed the still unused 3 gamecode databases)

Hi. As promised (again), here's the third weekly update of HCL (Humble Cobra Launcher).

HCL is a Cobra ODE manager. If you want to use it, just replace the original "cobra manager" (manager.iso) and make sure that your "cobra.cfg" is already set to use homebrew.

Here are the most important changes in this version (HCL V0.3):

  • PKG Installer. (yes, you now can install demos, games and homebrews from PKG files - read bellow for further information).
  • Hex Viewer. Now you can open any file from the File Manager and have a look at its binary contents.
  • Better File Manager. Now it has icons, allows to execute .self files (correctly located and signed), install .pkg files and Hex Viewer.
  • Graphical enhancements. And better resolution backgrounds.
  • Faster load time. Once installed, HCL takes less than 8 seconds to start and allow access to your games!

Coming features (in following weekly updates):

  • Disc Ripper (present right now, but seems that doesn't work in ALL Cobra ODE, I'm still investigating the issue).
  • Better PKG Installer (support for game updates and DLC installs)
  • Param.sfo Viewer.
  • Image Viewers.
  • Integration with some Emulators.
  • Sound Effects.

About PKG INSTALLER:

  • PKG Installer, for now, only allows you to install Games, Demos, Homebrews, and others. But it WILL NOT allow you to install Game Updates nor DLCs. This is because a "safety" measure I implemented that doesn't allow the installer to write over "already existing content" inside your PS3. This feature, after further investigation, might be added in next update.
  • You can install PKG from the File Manager. Just "select" it, and you will be asked if you want to install the file.
  • The PKG INSTALLER from TOOLS menu, will ask you to place the file you want to install in a USB Drive and it must be named INSTALL.PKG . Remember that the USB Drive must be formated as FAT32. Also, you can install the same file through the FILE MANAGER if you want (it's exactly the same internal procedure).
  • The INSTALLER does not "crack" the games for you. Most PSN content, if not cracked before install, will just run in "demo mode" or not run at all.
  • The INSTALLER will install PS1, PS2 classics content and others. But the games will surely not work, because their licence is surely "not activated".
  • After installing a PKG, you need to enter into GAMEDATA TOOL menu of PS3, this will force XMB menu to update, and then it will display the icon to the stuff you just installed.

Please write feedback. Cheers.

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.
