so guys with this you can play the newest games without the dongle ??
This is just the way multiman reads its music for the theme. I was trying to answer the question above my post. multiman looks for a sound.bin file. it must be a .mp3 file renamed to .bin.
You are right , under normal circumstances it would make the file unreadable but not in this case. .bin is used for lots of things like firmware updates for dvd drives etc, its basically just raw sequential data in a .bin file.
NO. Simple as that!

For those with the Cobra USB dongle, coveman has made available an Open PS2 Loader ISO File via tortuga-cove.com/hacking/31-ps3/2611-open-ps2-loader-iso-file.
Download: Open PS2 Loader (ISO) (1.27 MB)
To quote: I created an "Open PS2 Loader" ISO file, so you can just load it from Cobra Manager or multiMAN.
Just extract the .rar and transfer it to your internal HDD to /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO
- You don't need SWAP MAGIC
- You don't need any optical disc at all in your PS3
- Works on PS3 non-BC (tested on my SLIM) (CobraUSB required)
I included the cover so you can either put it in /covers_retro/psx/SLES_806.08_COV.JPG or rename it to "Open PS2 Loader.jpg" and put it along side the ISO in PS2ISO folder.
You need to extract the .ISO file in the .RAR download and then move it to your internal HDD (/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO) using a file manager or FTP program. Then it should show up in the "Retro" column on multiMAN and you can play it. (You need the Cobra USB to use it on your PS3).
This is great from Slim PS3 and Cobra USB owners since most PS2 games will now work flawlessly on it.
has anybody got this to boot on a non bc ps3?
tried it on my 160gb non bc phat and all i get is the ps2 gameboot sound and then a black screen.
Can the newest version play FFVII : Crisis Core (PSP game) WITHOUT the dongle? Yes/No
