Habib Cobra 4.53 V1.05 CEX Edition PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) Out


Sponsored Links
62w ago - Following up on his previous revision and PS2 Games on Non-BC PS3 Consoles update, today PlayStation 3 developer Habib has updated his PS3 Custom Firmware to Habib Cobra 4.53 V1.05 CEX Edition CFW followed by v1.05a with the changes detailed below.

Download: HABIB COBRA 4.53 V1.05 CEX.PUP / HABIB COBRA 4.53 V1.05 CEX.PUP (Mirror) / HABIB COBRA 4.53 V1.05A.PUP / HABIB COBRA 4.53 V1.05A.PUP (Mirror) / habibplugin.sprx / ps2_netemu.self

v1.05 MD5: 66DD52844C559DBC513BA5B8CE4E9C65
v1.05a MD5: 0C0B4AE29774CF489BC3C9F592D7CC95

To quote: Changelog 1.05:

1. PS2 for semi-bc PS3 working as per user by using this method:

1 - Start PS3 with the controller via usb.
2 - Launch PS2 ISO.
3 - The game starts and the controller loses the sync but i'm able to resync it, although its been said its buggy and sometimes games launch and sometime not.

2. PS2 for non-bc ps3
3. Not tested ps2 support for bc console
4. Used Estwald's new core edited by me, check below for changelog...

NOTE: ps2 will have controller synch if used modded emu (see below)

CORE: In this CFW I have by default added original ps2_emus for ps3 so that if you are disturbed with controller sync problem,you can use original emu for ps2. To enable/disable modded ps2 emu,use ps2 flag i've created.

Put a 0 byte file named "ps2" in usb/core_flags/ then put the usb in the rightest port of ps3 and turn ps3 on,if everything goes right, the ps3 should restart and flag ps2 will rename to _ps2 if ps2 emu for bc or semi-bc console doesn't work or you see them buggy, use ps2 flag and swap back to original emu...

PRX loading at startup, iso mounting, ntfs support are working.

NOTE:

1. if you have installed bad plugin etc,pls change fw from cobra(from recovery ofcourse) to different as cobra safe_mode isnt working properly on 4.53

WARNING: DONT TRY TO SPOOF FW VERSION!! All the other patches of a cfw is included.

THANKS:

1. kokotonix for trying to help
2. user for helping me in clarifying some things up (rtoc)
3. deank for his mm
4. naehwert
5. failoverflow
6. all other devs

TO OTHER DEVS: stage0 base needs updating and stage1 flash_mount_446.S. flash mount uses ppc 64 bit instructions found in lv2_kernel and in lv2_dump, if you do not do this or the system cant allocate stage2 then it will kick you in recovery mode

TO PREVENT COPY-CATERS: signatures on offset 10108 of lv0.elf

THIS COBRA PORT IS DONE FIRST TIME BY ME, SO I MAY PROVIDE UPDATES OVER TIME...

Update: There is an issue causing some Cobra Feature to not work properly, best advised to stay on v1.04 until the issue has been sorted.

Changelog 1.05a:

1. PS2 for semi-bc PS3 working as per user by using this method:

1- Start ps3 with the controller via usb.
2- Launch ps2 iso.
3- The game starts and the controller loses the sync but i'm able to resync it.
although its been said its buggy and sometimes games launch and sometime not..

2. PS2 for non-bc PS3
3. My own plugin used for ps2 swapping (see below)
4. Fixed webman plugin bugs which occurred
5. Used my own plugin instead of estwalds core thus nullifying problems with webman....

NOTE: PS2 will have controller synch if used modded emu (see below)

CORE: In this cfw i have by default added original ps2_emus for ps3 so that if you are disturbed with controller sync problem, you can use original emu for ps2. To enable/disable modded ps2 emu, use ps2 flag i've created. Put a 0 byte file named "ps2" in usb/core_flags/. Then put the usb in the rightest port of ps3 and turn ps3 on, if everything goes right, the ps3 should restart and flag ps2 will rename to _ps2 if ps2 emu for bc or semi-bc console doesn't work or you see them buggy, use ps2 flag and swap back to original emu...

You need to use my plugin and edit boot_plugins.txt adding this line: /dev_hdd0/habibplugin.sprx put the sprx in dev_hdd0/

SIGNS OF CORE: 3 beeps or reboot=SUCCEED! once you hear 3 beeps, reboot PS3...

Update #2: Guys you won't need that habibplugin on my latest cfw 4.53 v1.05a by using this: ps2_netemu.self

Controller synch won't appear on classics BUT will give you controller synch prob in iso... it wasn't thoroughly tested, i'm just posting it, at a glance, it was all good and yeah its for non-bc ps3 only... as cobra files is same on steven one too, you can use it.

can I install on Rogero 4.50 directly? should I have to downgrade to 3.55?

"Do not try to spoof"

Well that also means you cant use WebMan or MultiMan as they both spoof by default.

To quote: HABIB 4.53: Cobra Edition v1.04

prx loading at startup, iso mounting, ntfs support are working but however i cant fix ps2 for bc consoles as i don't have bc consoles and didn't patch for ps3 slim as ps2 classic and cobra uses same ps2_netemu for ps3 slim

NOTE:

1. ps2 isos for slim is ps2 classic as cobra and ps2 classic uses same ps2_netemu and i cant fix issue of bc consoles as i don't have any bc console
2. if you have installed bad plugin etc, pls change fw from cobra (from recovery of course) to different as cobra safe_mode isn't working properly on 4.53

WARNING: DONT TRY TO SPOOF FW VERSION!! all the other patches of a cfw is included..

1. kokotonix for trying to help
2. user for helping me in clarifying some things up (rtoc)

SRC: it is included in download pkg. i have done partial work of ps2 too but it won't work. i hope you will make a good use of it.

TO OTHER DEVS: stage0 base needs updating and stage1 flash_mount_446.S.flash mount uses ppc 64 bit instructions found in lv2_kernel and in lv2_dump, if you do not do this or the system cant allocate stage2 then it will kick you in recovery mode.

TO PREVENT COPY-CATERS: signatures on offset 10108 of lv0.elf

THIS COBRA PORT IS DONE FIRST TIME BY ME, SO I MAY PROVIDE UPDATES OVER TIME...

CHANGELOG v1.04:

1. FIXED CONTROLLER ISSUE ON SOME GAMES (THANKS TO REPORTERS OF THIS ISSUE)
2. STABILITY IMPROVEMENT (A LITTLE)
3. ADDED CATEGORY_GAME.XML FOR WEBMAN BY DEFAULT

CHANGELOG v1.03:

1. PSP support fixed
2. Restored original ps2 emus.you can use ps2 classic as compatibility is same for cobra and ps2classic for ps3 slim.i cant fix ps2 issue of bc consoles as i dont have any,so compatibility between cobra and ps2classic on bc ps3 will vary....

CHANGELOG v1.02:

1. Fixed recovery mode hang. if anyone is stuck in recovery, pls follow these instructions:

  • Install a different hdd
  • Install my CFW (the new version of 4.53 cobra or search for 4.46 V1.03A of Cobra)

2. Fixed PS2 bug ONLY on BC Consoles (not tested as i don't have bc console.if it still doesn't work, i need a good tester with bc console)

CHANGELOG v1.01:

1. Disabled block of peek by cobra which cause black screen if controller not connected through usb (Thanks Deank for your idea).

Does this mean i can install a CFW on a CECH-2501B console with 4.53 OFW. Looking at two different consoles to buy right now. the other is cech-2001a possibly with current OFW. Should I buy and will I be able to run backups of my game discs?

i'm not saying anyone to give me repu. 'im not saying that use my cfw. i'm not saying that there weren't great people behind. if you don't like it pls don't use it. the work i've done for me, i'm just sharing to my cfw lovers. also that signature which by you is so called "bs" does not affect your ps3

pls don't say something you dont know. ldrs contains keys. and the KEYS ARE OBFUSCATED WHICH ARE SAME FROM 4.21+ AND THE ALGO HAVE BEEN RELEASED TO DO ITS WORK!!

if ldrs get changed you can compare the old instructions or opcode and locate them and patch them...

nothing wrong with the guy adding this, too many lamers c/p and claiming "own" work

the cfw isn't behaving any diff with the added sig in lv0, all these people releasing cfw's should at least be capable of patching the files manually
