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.

metzen you are right and bit wrong , fat models have been NOR as well in fact all models from CECHHxx onwards are NOR

Is your ps3 a phat or slim? Slim = NOR

The hard drive is held in by one blue screw on the slim. You need to first lift the small square covering on the bottom of your unit and then you will see it. Once you have removed that screw the front faceplate where the hard drive is slides out to the right.

Below is a video explaining the process:




Hope it helps and good luck

first i think you should click restore default while in safe mode then reboot then click restore ps3 then use a downgrader pup file or a 4.53 cfw like mine or stevens or someones

M8 just 2 posts lower is nearly same thing , why ppl go to 4.53 its pointless and bricks building up , try other 4.53 cfw , try rebuilt database , if console is NOR try swap hdd , otherwise is hardware flasher.

Hello everyone,

I updated my ps3 with HABIB's 4.53 CEX CFW update and my PS3 failed to update. Now it reboots every time into safe mode, and i have tried updating with any other CFW update, but it wont work.

Any suggestions on what to do? And how do i get my PS3 back into "normal" again?

Help will be very appreciated

My console AND account got banned because I went online with it. I did NOT play games online, just was on PSN with a CFW console and they banned me.

So if you want to risk going online to play backups its always your own risk. They will ban you for the smallest thing. As I said I did nothing just have CFW installed and got banned.

It was 3.55CFW that I had installed. The one that if you flashed OFW3.55 there was no proof a CFW was installed at all and they banned me.

My PS3 is at the moment on Rebug 4.46. Is it possible to play online with an actually Custom Firmware like Habib 4.53?

I mean play with backups.

You still need to be on 3.55 to install any cfw, but these consoles cech-2501b and 2001a can be downgraded with a flasher.. but if your ps3 is already on 3.55 you can this cfw or any other.

If you wanna run backups i recommend rogero 4.50 or rebug.. rebug cfws are the best in my opinion
