Video: OpenCobra Cobra USB Dongle PS3 Payload by Oct0xor Demo


Sponsored Links
84w ago - Following up on the PS3UserCheat and True Blue unnecessary DRM-infected dongles being hacked alongside zadow28's work, today PlayStation 3 developer oct0xor shared a video of his OpenCobra Payload which aims to render the current Cobra USB dongle from Max Louarn useless.

Below are the details from his [Register or Login to view links], as follows: "First I am going to say that this is not going to be an article, just a first blog post and some info about my recent project.

Finally I got my hands on cobra it was quite a lot of time since I touched this last time. There was s good things happened since then eg. I reverse engineered usercheat and true blue, had done a lot ps3 and not ps3 related hacking. There was a bad things eg. BlueDiskCFW, lv0 leak, a lot of devs leave the scene...

Cobra was for me really "the last" thing I have to do.

The last time when I worked on this I didnt had a dongle, and all what I had was a dump by JaiCraB. I reverse engineered it as much as possible, figure out almost all tricks, encrypton and etc. And figuare out that it reads a lot of data from dongle, and I cant do much without dongle itself. Thats why I put this project to the back burner.

Well... I had never buyed anyone dongle, and I never was not going to. All my dongles was donated (thanks again ) but not that time.

it was hard for me to make this decision but a few days ago cobra finally shipped to me...

3 days and now its all over.

Security is good enough, but not without big security risks. But it still the best crypto/obfuscation what I had seen on ps3. Sony have something to learn from this guys, especially now.

Cobra / True Blue almost identical, have the same source code, if you ever hacked 1 thing, 2nd wouldnt be a problem. The main functionality, honestly, not changed since original jb. Thats a shame. Thats why I cracking them like nuts





On the fourth day I taked a decision to make my own "OpenCobra" payload. only clean code without drm and garbage, to be able to port it to any new firmware, and change/add features. It taked 2 days, 3000 lines of asm, and you had seen the result.

Atm it based on 4.1 payload, plans for future is check/add new features from 4.4/5.0. Port to a new firmware (if cobra will not do this for me), and realize all nice innovations from new version of psp emu, such as better emu accuracy, 3D and etc...

In video you had seen Payload Loader. Thats the all code it has:

This tag related patches handled by mngr. So far I want to move it in payload. First I have to check how it handled in 4.4 / 5.0

Not sure yet when it will be released, if it will be, but we will see.

Keys!

If this subject will be interested for people, maybe I will write a full article about True Blue / Cobra analysis and hacking.

btw: Me and ~ some psp mysterious dark figure ~ reverse engineered algo for generating valid psp isos back to jule. But saves and a lot of games dont work without patching. So cobra's patched emu much better there imho."

Below are some additional pics from his blog which simply states: Usercheat + Cobra = <3

From flat_z: Here is some explanations to make things more clearer. If you read my twit about ps2_netemu you can see that I reverse-engineered it. It includes almost all things which are required to make custom disc images of original PS2 discs and run them on the PS3 if everything will works fine. So it can lead us to the process of remastering PS2 discs which includes making of ISO.BIN.ENC (the encrypted version of original image which can be read by the PS3), creation and encryption of .VME files (virtual memory cards), ISO.BIN.EDAT (includes the title ID of disc).

The only thing which is not currently known is the format of decrypted CONFIG file (I can decrypt the file and encrypt it back but it have a complex format). It is optional and can be empty but I'm afraid that some games requires it to run on the PS3. My plan was the creation of PS2 remastering tool and I wanted to share it. Although I even not sure will it work or no but there are many chances that it will.

But something happened before I started to do it. My HDD on the laptop died and I have all information regarding PS3 on it. Although I was able to restore some important files but not all. So I need a time to buy components for a new computer and build it. For the same reason, I have a delay on my real job (I'm working as a free-lancer) so I will going to do my job before I start to do something new for PS3.

P.S. I see many questions about compatibility. You don't need a backward compatible PS3 console to run PS2 games through ps2_netemu because it is software emulator and doesn't require any PS2 hardware components. Also I think that ps2_netemu is more better and stable than ps2_softemu but this statement requires testing.

Finally, from naehrwert (via twitter.com/naehrwert) comes some related Cobra ODE EID0 information (ECDSA from pastie.org/6169158) , as follows:

While this is definitely interesting news, odds are it's just a ploy for the Cobra Team to release a new dongle that will be 'required' for their upcoming PS3 4.3x CFW unfortunately or the PS3 ODE in order to further line their pockets with PlayStation 3 sceners' hard-earned cash once again... as always, time will tell for sure.

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.

  • 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

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.
