HABIB COBRA 4.55 V1.01

Luckily emu on 4.53 and 4.55 is same so support for Semi-BC PS3's is added.

Changelog:

  • safety feature for plugins have been re-added.to use it just re-install fw and it is fixed (from recovery)
  • plugins are now loaded from dev_habib, boot_plugins.txt resides there.as a result, habibplugin is built in and safety feature now work
  • semi-bc ps2emu support

Please post your results... Also don't forget on how to use habibplugin, it's now built inside the firmware.

Update: HABIB COBRA 4.55 V1.02A

  • 2 persons reported for a black screen.
  • The size dev_flash was taking big so i lowered it. It fixes those issues.. tested on 3 consoles and so far, no error.

Update #2: HABIB COBRA 4.55 V1.02B

This is public release. And forget v1.02A, 1.02A was for that guy to test. I have reverted some things and now its working good.1.02B is builted from 1.00 with semi-bc support only.

1. up to user you use habibplugin
2. no more boot_plugins.txt in dev_flash (now resides where it should (dev_hdd0))
3. re-builded from v1.00
4. semi-bc ps2 support.
5. BUG FIX!!! (for old phaty models)

Update #3: HABIB COBRA 4.55 V1.03

HABIBPLUGIN: No need for 0 byte file, instead, use this combo: L2 + R2 + Select and you will get a message of the progress on the right corner of ps3.once done, PS3 will reboot.. this combo can be applied in xmb and in-game xmb (like every plugin).

CFW: Supports for PS2 for all PS3's (for semi-bc and bc PS3 you need to connect controller through usb and then you can disconnect it, controller will work wirelessly).. controller bug is partially covered by using old, fixed PS2 emu for bc and semi-bc PS3.

Only if you have the System Update setting to Automatically ON

Main features in system software update version 4.50
You can now set the group of players who can see your trophies. You can also specify for each game whether to show trophies.

See details:

The PS3™ system can now perform the following operations when you set Settings [Settings] > System Settings [System Settings] > [Automatic Update] to [On], even if you do not subscribe to PlayStation®Plus. When this setting is [On], the PS3™ system will automatically start each day at the specified time, perform these operations, and then turn off.

Uhm... Sony implemented automatic firmware updates from this version on, don't forget this ! If not patched and you are connected they can update your CFW to OFW whenever they want.

Well that didn't take too long, although afraid to really get out of my comfort zone of Rogero at the moment, maybe when I hear some more feedback or if multiman supports it.
