183w ago - Today Cobra PS3 Firmware v4.2 is released for those who own the USB dongle alongside MultiMAN PlayStation 3 Backup Cobra USB Manager v03.00.00 below.

Download: Cobra PS3 Firmware v4.2 Update / multiMAN Cobra Manager v03.00.00 (dongle required) / multiMAN Emulator Pack (SNES GENP FCEU FBAN VBAN - 49.96 MB)

Package contains:

  • mmCM 03.00.00 (3108 PS3 Covers, 2020 PS2 Covers) (showTIME, ps3SERV)
  • PS3SERV PC app: To be used with mmCM file manager /net_host# network folders.
  • SHOWTIME PLAYER: Included as SHOWTIME.SELF in mmCM USRDIR/sys folder to enable playback of video files
  • BROWSER.SELF: Standalone WWW/FTP application

Condorstrike from Tortuga-Cove.com believes deank is not working for the Cobra USB Team and has stated the following on the IRC logs below discussing it:

"We don't have confirmation on that, truth be told... we haven't spoken to Dean in a while, he did tell me a while back that he was going away for a while.

So from my understanding as far as I know, this is Team Cobra's app using Multiman's open source project... so for now, I'd say it's not Dean."

Update: The man himself deank has now made an official statement on the merging of multiMAN and Cobra.

Also, Team Cobra have released a quick update to mmCM to fix a minor bug that was present in mounting PSP ISOs without a disc in the drive. mmCM v03.00.01 update is available now ONLINE ONLY to Cobra USB users via the intergrated update system.

From IRC:

[Abkarino] deank had joind cobra team?
[flash67] LOL
[TehRuler] YEP
[TehRuler] LOL
[eussNL] Cobra ~=~ TrueBlue
[eussNL] so if it supports the replaced sub_28fe30 and new section 0x80000000007f0000 that Cobra uses, it means Trueblue support is around the corner...
[flash67] exactly
[middleman] i see deank sold out eh, that mustve been the big news tortuga was talking about
[TehRuler] no wonder he's been hiding
[middleman] yeah, went in hiding to make multiman for cobra, blah

Finally, below are the changes, as follows:

  • Added MultiMan for Cobra in the download section.
  • Support for games with split files.
  • Bugfix: special keys of bdremote weren't working in showtime.

Multiman for Cobra changelog:

  • Full Cobra support (PSX, PS2, PSP, PS3, ISO, BIN, CUE, BDM, DVD)
  • PSP UMD game support when PSP connected in USB+UMD mode

Unself the vsh.self (try using MAGIC PKG 1.0), then HexEdit the vsh.ELF and replace the 8 bytes at the following addresses:

Please help !! I installed the latest version (full) of multiman, this went well but when loading the system freezes and shows a screen with a laughing face. When trying to remove this version aI end up with a corrupted icon in the list. I can't install an earlier version because system says that there is already the latest version installed.

How do I completely remove multiman and what can i do to get it working again. I'm on CFW 3.55.

Thnx

Today condorstrike has made available a Metro mmCM PS3 Theme for those interested with details below, as follows:

Download: Metro mmCM PS3 Theme

To quote via tortuga-cove.com/hacking/31-ps3/6572-solar-v41-and-metro-mmcm-theme-released: I took a couple of days off from working on Solar and got bored quickly, so I made an mmCM theme called METRO, 100% compatible with the latest version 04.02.00, but I really don't have time to make themes, so I won't be making any more...
