    Cobra ODE 2.1 Public Beta

    Sponsored Links
    Today magneto has made available the Cobra ODE 2.1 Public Beta with changelog below, as follows:

    Download: v2.1_beta.rar

    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.

    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 crash when disc dumping finishes
    • 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

    "Custom" Paid Content on OFW Tutorial by zecoxao (via tortuga-cove.com/forums/viewtopic.php?p=28304#p28304)

    Confirmed working tutorial. For this tutorial you'll require:
    • A PS3 with OFW
    • Activated account
    • Bought Mini/Remaster/Psx Classic (Must be activated!)
    • PSNStuff (Optional, but highly recommended)
    • Edat Tool GUI
    • mangoose by doobz (only if you want to run a psp game)
    • method to overwrite /dev_hdd0/game (data transfer/ODDE)

    Steps

    1. Get an already activated content on PSN (this will be used as placeholder) and the correspondent rap (for OFW users, you have to find an alternative way to obtain it, as currently there is no access to the internal HDD in OFW. you can use psnstuff for this)

    2. Get the pkg of the content you'll use as a replacer and fetch its rap aswell (you can use psnstuff for this, same as above)

    3. Extract the pkg of the replacer and decrypt the edat(s) on it with its own rap (Optional-PSPtoPS3) If the replacer is a psp pkg, get the eboot and use mongoose on it

    4. Reencrypt the edat(s) with the placeholder rap. in PSPtoPS3 case, encrypt the BINs.

    5. Replace the edat(s) and eboot of the placeholder with the ones of the replacer (you can use ODDE for this with ftp/backup manager, or alternatively, you can use data transfer with the content in cfw)

    6. Test your new game. It should boot.

    EBOOT/SELF/SPRX Resigner for ODE by Joonie86

    Hi everyone, this is Joonie. I would like to introduce this useful tool for ODE users.

    I've seen some EBOOT resigners for ODE that resolves the issue with 80010017 error due to the non-original eboot, but it seems that no resigners could resign self and sprx files for ODE users unless the files are renamed to EBOOT.BIN instead.

    Lots of games like Cod, God of War, FFX 10/10-2 HD, has tones of files including EBOOT.BIN, *.SELFs and *.SPRXs needed to be resigned for lower FW to work with.

    This tool can be useful for people who use lower FW version, but the game requires higher FW,
    I think this is very helpful for 4k users who use OFW 4.53 but willing to play future release game that requires 4.55+ FW.

    Some of games can't work without properly resigning all of those files if the game has been touched for CFW, or you're trying to convert PSN games to DISC type.

    Games like Lost in the rain [PSN] does not work without resigning sprx files [it has about 26 files to be resigned as NO-DRM]



    How to use:

    1. unpack the zip file
    2. choose the desired folder to resign each file
    3. put the file you want to resign, if it's EBOOT.BIN put that inside EBOOT Resigner folder, if it's Self file then inside the self.

    *it does not support multiple self / sprx files, so please do it one file at a time

    4. run the batch file [EBOOT Resigner] [SELF Resigner] [SPRX Resigner]
    5. it'll be automatically delete the original file and create new file that's resigned with 3.55's key in order for ODE to work.



    *This tool originally had Chinese translated gui interface, but I removed it, if that's needed I can add it upon request.

    Usage of EBOOT/SELF/SPRX Resigner for ODE

    1. Resolves the issue with the game due to the missing original EBOOT.BIN/*.SELF/*.SPRX [80010017 error fix]
    2. Modded EBOOT.BIN to enable some cheat codes.
    3. Homebrew/PSN pkg conversion to Disc type ISO file.
    4. Lowering PS3 System software requirement from 4.XX to 3.55 [It can be very useful for 4k users who wish to stay on 4.53 but willing to play future release games]

    *Regarding resigning npdrm psn pkg eboot/self/sprx. In order for those npdrm files to be resigned, first it has to be NO-DRM type, you can make those file "RAP" free by using True Anscestor Eboot Resigner 1.91. As long as it's NO-DRM EBOOT/SELF/SPRX, It should work with this resigner for ODE. Because this resigner does not support NPDRM files [requires RIF KEY]

    Non-supported feature:

    1. Batch resign for multiple files. This resigner can only resign one file at a time.

    Download: EBOOT/SELF/SPRX Resigner for ODE download (COBRA_ODE.zip)

    I originally found this from Chinese forum called Duowan. This tool is kinda similar to JjKkYu's older version of True Anscestor Eboot Resigner. Unfortunately I couldn't figure out who originally made this tool.

    All I did was adding "SPRX" resigner to support more files. Please remind me if anyone knows who built this tool originally, I'd like to give him many many thanks.

    Special Thanks

    naehrwert [scetool], Team Cobra, The person who originally built this tool.

    P.S. SDeath, Can you make batch script for this tool to support multiple self / sprx files? games like FFX HD has about over 1000 sprx files.. ;; I really enjoy your batch tool for ISO. Please consider this if that's possible.

    How to Install and Play PSP Remaster PKG on the Cobra ODE by Joonie86

    Hi this is Joonie, today I want to introduce this tutorial to show you how to play PSP games on PS3.



    About a year ago, this method was discovered by the well known developer zecoxao and since then all the scenes got hyped and as a result, lots of great tools were developed, but sadly, due to the its compatibility issue with games, lot of people have lost interested in doing this. I personally confirmed this PSP remaster work on OFW by data transfer from CFW to OFW.

    But at that time, I did not have ODE and Cobra ODE was still in developing stage, so probably because of that, people have forgotten about this PSP Remaster conversion. So today, I'd like to bring it back here so hopefully it helps some people who really want to play PSP games on PS3.

    First of all I would like to send my thanks to everyone that contributed to this forum as it has taught a lot on the topic and I doubt I could have done this without them!

    Requirements:

    1. Sonicman ODE v1.01
    2. PSP to PS3 Conversion tool
    I use Aldostools' PSP2PS3 2.1.2 "mod" updated on 2013-05-09! Based on the awesome scripts created by szczuru, and the tools created by Pink1, arnold (swapperneger), zecoxao, tpu, doobz, sandungas among others devs. This "mod" tries to streamline the process of conversion of PKG/ISO/CSO/PBP to PSP package for PS3. Latest versions include a GUI and improved compatibility.

    3. Compatible PSP Game ISO files for PS3

    PSP to PS3 conversion's compatibility is not really good, probably as much as PSN Game to ISO, which means I'd say 50% of the chance you may get it to work. Before you begin, you could look at compatibility list:

    [Register or Login to view code]

    4. FAT32 Formatted USB Stick or HDD [Big enough to contain PSP PKG Games minimum 2GB
    5. Cobra ODE

    How to:

    Step 1: PSP iso to PS3's remaster PKG Conversion

    For this example i will use the following:

    GAME ISO: Parasite Eve: The 3rd birthday
    Disc ID: ULES-01513
    Unpacked size: 1.36GB
    Image Format: .ISO



    Drag the ISO file to the file Path and it will automatically process and fix ISO file properly for Conversion, In the middle of the process it will ask if you want to fix EBOOT, MINIS2,EDAT and such, Just click "YES" so it will continue.

    Soon you will see this screen below:



    Then click "MAKE PKG" and it will start process. As soon as you're done, you'll see the message saying "Process finished" and then find the where the result is by clicking black folder icon and open the results folder:



    Copy the pkg file to External USB FAT32 HDD or STICK, and plug it to PS3's front USB ports.

    Then launch the SonicMAN ODE. You DO NOT have to change your Cobra.cfg setting to make it as default setting, you can just put that manager.iso file inside PS3_GAMES folder on your NTFS HDD for ODE.

    Step 2:

    Launching SonicMAN ODE and Install the pkg.

    This multiMAN fork called SonicMAN ODE has pkg install feature, and it does not matter if the PKG file is repacked or not. It can unpack the PKG file without going thru PS3's signature check, and gets registered inside the system so you do not have to put your system on Recovery mode and data rebuild like old way, it's really easy to install pkg just click and go.

    *A little tip for DLC install. I know it's off topic, but it is very useful tip for people who want to install DLC pkgs as well other than PSP pkgs.

    With the same method, you can install DLC pkgs too, but since it unpacks everything from the package including PARAM.SFO, you may eventually face the issue with the particular game you want to play, so the best way to do is, if it is possible, after the installation of DLC pkg, manually install game update at the very last, so that way you can overwrite the PARAM.SFO over DLC's:



    Select the SonicMAN ODE from the browser and mount, then launch it!



    Open the File Manager:



    Click the dev_usb00X [the number depends on which port you use from [S3]



    Fine the package and double click:



    Click Ok to unpack the package.





    As soon as you're done exit to XMB. If the game doesn't appear right away, try to eject the disk and mount any PS3 games on ODE Browser.

    As soon as the game is mounted, it will refresh the system and PSP game will appear. Once it's appeared, you don't need to use SonicMAN ODE anymore, it's permanent like homebrew, you don't need bootdisc or SonicMAN to launch it.

    If you use Superslim PS3 and enabled 4.55 bypass, whenever you launch PSP game, your Clipboard's LED will blink as if it was doing bypass process, do not worry, you don't need to swap any disc, you can just leave the bootdisc.

    It will launch no matter what. Again, you will see lots of games will have issue, eventually freeze, or blackscreen, so please check the compatibility list first and then try, if you try many times and fail, you will feel so frustrated.

    Games that are confirmed by me:
    • Final Fantasy 0
    • Final Fantasy 7 Crisis Core
    • Parasite Eve The 3rd birthday
    • CPGX




    *How to make your PSP games run in full screen:



    Go to the game setting from XMB.




    Video: Examples of three different bypassing behaviors on OFW 4.55 (Only 4k models)












    Since OFW 4.55, Sony made changes on PS3's Official Firmware to block ODE, but for some reason, only the 4K/4.2K models are affected and as a result, Team Cobra successfully managed to bypass the anti-ode check on OFW 4.55.

    Unfortunately, To be honest with you all, running back up games on 4K/4.2K models is not as easy as before, but, ODE still does its job and allows you to play back up games no matter what.

    Bypassing procedure is a little bit different depending on the game title, so in this video, it will show you how it is different.

    Basically there are three different behaviors.

    1. A game with no update [1.00 version] : Only requires one swap [Boot disc -> Swap disc]
    2. A game with update [1.0x version] : Requires two swaps [Boot disc -> Swap disc -> Boot disc]
    3. A game with update but does not check LIC.DAT [license data] [Boot disc ->Boot disc]

    In this video, there are three games that show each case of bypass procedue.

    1. Dynasty Warrior 8 Extreme Legend US release [1.00 version with no update]
    2. Dai-3-Ji Super Robot Taisen Z JP release [1.01 version with game update patch]
    3. Metal Gear Solid 4 Guns of Patriots US release [2.00 version with game update patch but no LIC.DAT]

    Tested system setup:

    PS3 CECH-4001C
    Cobra ODE 4.30a
    MCU 2.1 Public Beta
    Bypass Enabled
    Cobra ODE Browser 1.6
    OFW 4.55
    WD Elements 1.5TB
    Bootdisc : BLUS30111 PES 2008 US
    Swapdisc : SONY BD-RE 25GB SL
    BD Disc's MID : RITEK-BW1-001

    Finally, from Joonie86 comes a Cobra Manager 1.6 [Stealth version] with details below:

    Download: manager.iso



    This is as the same as Cobra Manager v1.6 that's on the official Cobra-ODE's Web site, but properly spoofed. I saw the ban report recently and decided to make proper spoofed version of Cobra Manager.

    I can not guarantee if this will prevent ban from PSN, but one thing I can tell is this won't be flagged as Cobra Manager, but Kung fu rider instead.

    I extracted PS3_DISC.SFB / LIC.DAT / PARAM.SFO from the original game. so it's almost as close as the original game.. but I didn't put the original ICON,PIC files because I don't think that's necessary.

    I haven't tried this with my system yet since it's more work for me because I have to re burn new SWAP disc.

    If someone wants to try this out please replace the manager with this one and report back.

    SDeath mention that whatever file that you put inside the COBRA folder as manager.iso, on XMB it would be shown as "Cobra Manager", but I believe it won't be flagged as "Cobra Manager" because I saw how Sonic-man-ODE was flagged as Sonicman ODE instead of PS MOVE Starter Edition unlike Multiman for ODE.

    Again, this is NOT Cobra ODE "Browser" but Manager which is useful for people who want to dump their own game discs.

    Solution for a Limited Hard Drive

    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?

    Cobra ODE 2.1 Public Beta / Non-Beta Follow-Up

    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: v5p10B10.spi

    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): Cobra_ODE_(V5.10B)_FW_V2.1 Beta_9.rar / Link 2 (dropbox - mirror): Cobra_ODE_(V5.10B)_FW_V2.1 Beta_9.rar

    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: http://www.ps4news.com/forums/ps3-ha...tml#post464747
    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: Swap_disc_tools_MCU_2.1.RAR

    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.

    16 - 6 - 2014 - Cobra ODE News - Update

    Download: Cobra_ODE_Bypass_455_v1.2.rar / Cobra_ODE_Bypass_455_v1.2.rar (Mirror) / Cobra_ODE_Bypass_455_v1_2.rar (Mirror #2)

    • The EBOOT folder has also been updated, now with 5760 total eboot files.

    Update: Cobra CFW Tools v2.00 by bitsbubba is now available, with the changes outlined below as follows:

    Download: Cobra CFW Tools 2.00.pkg

    Cobra CFW Tools (v2.0 Changelog):
    • Added 4.46 REBUG/Cobra support
    • Added Plug in installer (webMAN/webMAN MOD/PSNPatch/Habib/Ingame screenshot~music)

    • Added multiMAN priority ON/OFF
    • Added Newer custom icons for webMAN (plus brunolee's folder icons)
    • 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

    [Register or Login to view code]

    Once you change the spoof version just save the new changes in the CFG file and replace it from the folder you initially took the CFG file from like above. Run PSN Patch again and re-spoof your firmware again. Reboot and enjoy PSN access again!!

    Update #2: Spoofing Cobra CFW to 4.60 Tutorial by kokotonix

    Spoofing Cobra Systems to 4.60

    As you probably know cobra version spoofing stopped working for a PSN Connection some days ago.

    The solution (at least for cobra habib 4.55) is quite easy:

    A) Disable any cobra version spoofing in use (psnpatch, webman, etc...)
    B) Install and run Spoof 4.60 for all CFW CEX Standard 4.55 by ARCH

    Regards

    Finally, from Habib (aka smhabib): PSP won't work and some other problems will arrive. I don't recommend this. Use the new SEN Enabler 5.5.1 since it changes the hash too.

    Arrow Cobra ODE News and a Warning

    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.

    The Cobra 5.30A complete will be sold in parallel with Cobra 5.10B QSV version.



    Resellers can reserve their pre-order qty's by e-mail.
