Help I'm very puzzled. I know how this work when I'm at Rogero 4.46 w Cobra 7.0 mixed. Now that I'm Habib Cobra 4.55 v1.03 no matter how I try it doesn't seems to work.

ntfs hdd/BDISO/Movie.iso
Loads w/ multiman or with Simple NTFS ISO Mounter

It loads back to XMB, no disc icon for the mounted iso movie.


heheh I'm desperate.

Any 4.50 or higher can be installed. Again like other post you made, use the downgrader pup first, then change CFW

Hi, i used this and i think it may have bricked my ps3. After restart my ps3 turns on normally but i get no signal and my controller lights flash for 6 seconds then stop. Any chance of recovery ?

Edit: Was lucky enough to get into recovery menu thankfully, Reinstalling cfw from usb if thats no good ill try other options from the menu

I know this is subjective but Habib Cobra 4.55 v1.02A and v1.02B or Rogero_CEX_4.55_v1.00b?

Could someone tell me the pros/cons over the other please.

*also my ps3 is a slim so its not BC or even semi (whatever that means) BC

There are consoles that have ps2 backward compatibility (BC). There are full BC (hardware emulation) and semi (software emulation). So, hardware are CECHA and CECHB, and software are CECHC and CECHE.

P.S. This is what I remember, sorry if I'm not right.
