It is recommended that, after a successful installation of custom firmware, run:

how to install ferrox 4.66 with no BD on the ps3 slim cech2003 with no BD drive. because when i try to install it from recovery mode with no BD drive plug in it just spinning nonstop on cheking the usb tumbdrive, but when i use any BD drive on it, it can be done.

is it the normal procedure or did i miss something here? i use irisman 3.33 & game sonic3.37 it wont let me play the game like god of war 3 and no Disc icon appear like when you have BD drive plugin.

This is my first time installed on ps3 with no BD so i am really confuse. i might miss something... please can any one explain to me about it?

MD5: CBA9DDE792AA73B3738179A587F72376

To quote, roughly translated: On idea of our staff, we have recommended to Alexander create a CFW 4.66 Cobra "Lite Edition".

Surely many of you do not make use of the PS2 and PSP games (I first game only with ISO PS3) so we decided to create a version of the Cobra CFW Lite, removing the function to play ISOs PS2 and PSP.

So we can play with PS3 ISO and PSX games, even from NTFS HDD. Plugins can be loaded as a conventional Cobra. Here are the details:

It requires installation by RECOVERY MODE.


  • Built on an OFW 4.66.
  • Lite Edition [ISO PSP and PS2 disabled].
  • Disabled the CoreOS and control ECDSA.
  • LV1: patched to remove protection LV2.
  • LV1: patched CoreOS Hash Check (prevents brick consoles downgradate not dehashed).
  • LV1: Peek & Poke.
  • LV2: Peek & Poke.
  • Compatibility PSP Remastered.
  • Compatibility PSP Minis.
  • Key 4.66 (start games with keys 4.66 EBOOT / SPRX)
  • PSN / SEN Enabled.
  • RSOD Screen Bypass for consoles suffering from RSOD. The RSOD is not resolved, but only BYPASSED.
  • BT Remote PS3 patch.
  • Support Remote Play Feature.
  • PS3 BluRay DISC patch.
  • Wireless Connectivity Supported on console not only compatible with the back-PS2Classic.
  • Compatibility with the latest version of REACTPSN.
  • App_home / PS3_GAME *.
  • Package Manager *.
  • Possible Downgrade with QA activated.
  • Upgradable from any CFW's from Recovery Mode.
  • Support XMB InGame ScreenShot Feature.
  • Stability as nell'OFW 4.66.
  • Ability to downgrade from any custom firmware with QA activated.
  • Functionality COBRA 7:00 Implemented. (Thanks to Habib / Joonie / Team Cobra)
  • Compatibility PS2 games (Only with Placeholder)
  • Support ISO PSX.
  • Support ISO PS3.
  • Support DVD ISO.
  • Support ISO BluRay.
  • Support HDD NTFS.


  • Added Patch ODE DRM (Thanks Habib)
  • Added patch to speed up the start of the Backup / Blu-Ray (Thanks Habib) - With these patches is to prevent errors: 8002292D / FFFFFFFF / 80,010,017.
  • STAGE2.BIN (Fix Dishonored) Thanks Deank.


The installation of the CFW goes exclusively made by Recovery. Remove any discs from the PS3. Once installed enter again in Recovery and Restore the Database and File System.


  • CECH 2004A - Tested and Working. (Thanks REIZA72)
  • CECHG04 - Tested and Working.
  • CECHL-01A - Tested and Working.
  • CECH-2501 - Tested and Working.
  • CECH 2504A - Tested and Working. (Thanks Orion / Vittorio)
  • CECHC-04 - Tested and Working.
  • CECHL-04 - Tested and Working. (Thanks Sniper)



  • Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare - Working. (ISO / FOLDER)
  • Dishonored - Tested and Working (ISO / FOLDER)
  • Far Cry 4 - Tested and Working (FOLDER)
  • Gran Turismo PSX - Tested and Working. (ISO)
  • The Legend Of Dragoon PSX - Tested and Working. (ISO)


Special thanks to Habib, Joonie & the team Cobra. Without them, this would not have existed. Thanks also go to SNIPER / Victor / REIZA72 / Orion who tested out our Cobra in all possible ways.

I hope that this alternative to Cobra "Standard" will please you, and maybe make happy users who do not play the Retro Games.

I originally wanted to release the full version of the cobra. Then some users of the forum, they gave me the idea of ​​releasing a "LITE". This version is only for those who use the functions COBRA exclusively for PS3 games and does not use retrogame. In addition, there are the extra patches.

Surely I will release a version of the full cobra, but stops me the fact that there is already an excellent Darknet. So I wanted to create something different.

A user after having updated the new STAGE 2 reported these problems:

  • Daemon Souls: Black screen (Webman / Gamesonic / multiMAN)
  • Alien Isolation: Black Screen (Webman / Gamesonic / multiMAN)
