I made an Minecraft fix including 1.01-1.05 update as well as all unlockable contents, any one try this and please confirm if this works. I suggest 2 methods to run Minecraft:
1. Install Minecraft official pkg [about 87mb] and then install my pkg [via SonicMAN ODE 3.0]
If this fails:
2. Install Minecraft Official pkg and then install my pkg and finally try PSN PKG to ISO conversion method and launch it from Cobra ODE manager/browser to run it, it should work and unlocked.
It seems like people were already doing it long time ago, although I haven't tried this method yet. It seems like edat needed to placed in dev_hdd0/game/ folder instead of dev_hdd0/home folder.
GameSonic Manager v2.70 PS3 Game Manager Update is Released
Following up on the previous updates, today Italian PlayStation 3 developer Orion (via Acid) has made available GameSonic Manager v2.70 PS3 Game Manager followed by SonicMAN v3.00 with the updated changes outlined below.
Tutorial: Install PS3 DLC with SonicMAN V3.01 via Cobra ODE
Tutorial: Install PS3 DLC with SonicMAN V3.01 via Cobra ODE by jxly_14
To quote, roughly translated: Hello to all Spanish-speaking people of the forum, took 3 months with the ode charge and I do not regret the investment. While the ODE works with most physical games , with digital and dlc have presented several difficulties.
So far I have been unable to install any PSN game with crack included , to continue the tutorial continue to q , the result is the same. The user Joonie86 says he found a method , which left a brief and detailed explanation , so q will ask users to manage the English q asked to do a tutorial to play the PSN.
Moreover, regarding the dlc , I found a very simple method that is using the Sonicman (manager of ISO 's manager replaces q Cobra).
What we need to install dlc 's next:
1 - dlc pkg format
2 - Pendrive
3 - Sonicman (do not know if it works with all versions , I used the V3.01 can be downloaded from here: SonicMan cobra ode V3.01.zip)
Initial clarification , to install the necessary q dlc has previously used the game even once for creating the respective folders on the hard drive of the console. I tried this method with the dlc 400 days of the game " The Walking Dead"
1 - Download the DLC to install pkg format
2 - Place it in the root of the pendrive ( the place is not relevant, but it is easier to access )
3 - Insert the flash drive in the usb console
4 - Open Sonicman Sonicman and go to paragraph (first from left to right) and choose File manager.
5 - You see an arrow similar to that of a mouse pointer , diriganse the right column and choose the option by pressing X dev_usb00X standing (the last number varies depending on q usb port have placed)
6 - That directory will open with the contents of the flash drive, if you followed my recommendation to put the pkg on the root will see highlighted in red. Select with X.
7- is a screen where open our confirmation request , which affirm selecting yes.
8- hope to finalize and conclude by clicking ok
9- Enjoy the DLC
Final note: I do not know if it will work with all dlc , that would be good qa q with q you say dlc work was to be putting together a list.
To quote, roughly translated: The developer Orion returns with a new update of Gamesonic manager v2.91.
This time I got to test out various PS3 CFW with 4:55 to customers and I riscontarto a significant processing speed with 4.55 Rogero CFW-Ferrox (Alexander and I thank the dev Rogero for their wonderful work), the staff recommends that you use the manager mated to one of those 2 CFW for a better gaming experience.
Global menu and Tools menu re-ordered.
Added dev_flash utility Menu from which you can assemble or disassemble dev_flash.
Coverflow Gui fixed.
Now the manager can read a file like settings.ini was IRISMAN (Thanks Aldo Vargas).
Temporarily deleted retroarch (we are looking for a way that does not weigh the user this feature).
Now the Ps2classic can be started from the game list but even this feature is bug (I would like to thank the dev Mussonero for support and the dev code CapitaCPSX).
Now the internet browser will be launched directly from the games list.
Removed option to download webman.
In fact completely removed the utility menu (too many useless app).
Source Code cleaned up and updated.
Makefile updated with the auto-RELOAD.SELF.
Option to the gui change updated and cleaned up.
Fixed all bugs that you had with the CFW 4.55 Habib/Cobra v 1.03.
FTP server can now browse, delete, send filer to NTFS drive (Thanks Aldo Vargas for the useful function).
Showtime updated to latest version.
Fixed a stupid bug char prevented the display of the console id.
Network tools updated for greater stability on CFW 4.46 cobra.
Now the manager is fully compatible with the CFW 4.50 DEX/Cobra Ps3ita v2.3.
Fixed bug with the CFW 4.50 DEX/Cobra Ps3ita v 2.3 now the dev_ps3ita will not be removed.
Finally, below is a preview video of SonicMAN v3.03.03 by mussonero as follows:
Self-generation of file "boot_plugins.txt" with plugin paths already written.
Plugins which may be installed are webman MOD developer Matsumoto & habibplugin
If you're not on CFW cobra and the manager detects Prx Loader, the plugin you will install webman to work with Prx Loader.
Now the dev_ps3ita will not be disassembled on CFW 4. XX DEX
Retroarch is no longer included, gamesonic manager is a backup manager for ps3 games (ps1-ps2-psp) and must do this job, so I will not longer, also saw that there is no good way to implement it.
Plugin installer Guide
You can just go to the menu Tools Advanced Tools > > Plugin Installer and click X. The manager will install the plugin and will ask you if you restart the PS3. You restart and reboot you will have the habibplugin and functional webman.
To quote, roughly translated: Gamesonic Manager v2.93 Changelog:
After the farewell to the PS3 scene for Cobra of the dev Mussonero dev (personal problem), Orion continues his run with a new Gamesonic Manager update in version 2.93.
In this new release and was again included Retroarch after a lot of requests from users of the PS3 scene and fix some bugs.
Fixed bug that kept the number of grids set by the user.
Fixed bug that would crash the console when you went out from an iso.
The plugin installer will detect if the CFW 4.50 dex Cobra/ps3ita install the plugins released by the team for this CFW + webma.
Fixed bugs that delayed the launch of a few seconds.
The ps2classic can be launched only from the file manager and not from the games list (due to a bug).
Reinstated support for retroarch.
Re-inserted the file "libfs_patched. sprx.
Gamepad test moved to the submenu "Advanced Tools".
To install the Orion developer Retroarch has developed a small app called "Retro-installer" that allows the user to install retroarch in gamesonic manager.This method resolves the issue of the heaviness of the manager due to retroarch, which didn't like users, and after installing retroarch you can delete this app safely.
Install the application.
Wait 5 seconds (required for copying and initialization files).
Just end the gamesonic process manager starts automatically.
i have a 2tb hdd ext with all the iso files. and on this drive i have also some other folders for backup. when the manager scans the ext drive it slow and sometimes it loads all the iso and sometime hangs and i have to restart the system.
the last version that works fine is the 2.4 and also the latest iris manager works fine.
any ideas what changed after 2.4???

To quote, roughly translated: Gamesonic Manager v2.94 Changelog:
Following the magnificent work of our friends openmodding.net with the release of the CFW 3.55 Ferrox NO BD, I decided to update gamesonic manager to provide all users who want to keep this CFW, or the future 4.55 Ferrox NO BD on console without reader, the possibility to start the games with the highest compatibility without reader.
Submissions discless file for CFW: 3.55-4.50.
Fixed small bug with the Mamba payload, caused by an incorrect reading of the file "libfs_patched.sprx."
Before anyone asks me, I have not included the files for the discless for CFW CFW 4.46-4.53-4.55 intentionally because they have access to the payload mamba that already do a great job.
Thanks to the guys openmodding, especially to the developer for these magnificent alexander CFW.
Here friends, Retro Installer v1.1. Nothing significant, I just rebuilt the pkg as GD (game date) so that you install on gamesonic manager directly without having to make many passages, as I was advised by Aldo. Thanks Aldo Vargas
Sorry guys I made a small mistake, however I think that is fine as the installer, or if someone wants to help me to improve it is welcome
To quote: Hi guys, after a week and a half of work I present the plugin manager v1.00 for CFW cex.
This homebrew has as its basis the "CFW Setup", developed by the team for their ps3ita cobra CFW 4.50 dex, but has completely different functions.
As you can see from the picture you have 5 options:
1) Install and activate * Webman v1.29.3
2) Install and activate habibplugin.sprx
3) Create the file boot_plugins.txt empty (no plugin directory written)
4) Remove all plug-ins in the console and leaves the file empty boot_plugins.txt
5) Save and exit dall'homebrew.
* = For active means that the path to the plugin will be written to the file boot_plugins.txt.
For users uninformed, pressing the start button on one of the options, you can view a detailed explanation of the selected option.
Automatic acquisition of the language set in the console (Peer now only in Italian and English, are already working to French and Spanish).
Ability to install / uninstall Webman and habibplugin.
Auto-creation dle file boot_plugins.txt.
When you install a plugin via the path of this homebrew plugin is written to the file boot_plugins.txt.
