182w 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.

Finally, puchin has made available a VSH.Self Patched for Cobra 3.55 based on the Cobra 3.55 original and details on how it was done below, as follows:

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

Then use self_rebuilder (also available in Make PKG 1.0), to rebuild the vsh.self
Drag and drop the original vsh.self and the edited vsh.elf

Got a spare ps3 i was able to jailbreak and is now running 4.66 darknet cfw.

I have had IRISMAN on it and it has picked up my ntfs drive no problem and found my backup iso's on it. Although some of them were not showing up even though converted and checked with IRD files etc changed file names and still not picked up by irisman.

So i thought i would try multiman as i want to use the same external drive for my other console which has a cobra ode installed. I cannot get it to detect the drive on the multiman xmb but if i go into mmos file explorer it see's the drive.

I have put iso's in 'GAMES' & 'GAMEZ' on the root of the drive and it will not detect them.

Have i got the folder system wrong?
At the moment it is:
Root:GAMES\GAME.ISO
Should it be:
Root:GAMES\GAMENAME\GAME.ISO
??

Or if anyone knows why irisman is not detecting some of my backups, ff13 lightning returns and need for speed rivals are 2 of the ones not working but they are detected and play fine on my cobra machine.

Also, everytime I reinstall multiman via mmOS and opening report_data.txt (renamed to report_data.self) from MM4.66.06, it turns bd-emulator to enable until I choose one game. I can play the game for half an hour or so before it sends me back to XMB and If I check Multiman again, bd-emulator is back to NONE and UNAVAILABLE.

change to normal cfw
