Sponsored Links
170w 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] 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...

With the PS3 already being wide open, why would people PAY for something that will end up being FREE like the rest of the PS JailBreak and PS Downgrade "exclusive" features anyway?

As always, once it gets into the hands of PS3 hackers these new features will end up being ported to existing JailBreak methods, CFW, etc.
