July 5, 2011 // 4:14 pm - Following up on his previous work, today Hansi has scanned the Cobra USB 2.0 USB traffic with his Beagle USB 480 Protocol Analyzer v1.00 and shared the resulting dump in total phase data center format.

Download: Cobra USB 2.0 Boot Scan TDC File / Cobra USB 2.0 Boot Scan TDC File (Mirror) / PSGrooPIC Cobra v2.00

To quote: Cobra USB dongle arrived today, thank you VERY much goes to span who donated a dongle to me! (let me know if you need it back, or I'll keep it if there is a need to scan again if there is any updates)

We upgraded the Cobra to v2.0 and booted a 3.41 phat PS3 with the Beagle 480 USB protocol analyzer attached between the Cobra and the PS3. The resulting data file is attached.

I hope the developers in the community have some use for this. Cobra usb dongle med PS1 support!!

Also, from an0nym0us on IRC today: payload_groove_cobrav2.o and some ASM:

[an0nym0us] sure the payload .bin file is there

Shortly following, Noltari has released a PSGrooPIC compile of the code. To quote:

Here's my compilation for PSGrooPIC. I haven't tested it because my PS3 is on FW 3.66 (online FTW). Remember that according to Cobra you must be on 3.41 official and you mustn't remove the dongle.

P.S: It may not work! Cheers!

For people unwilling to go back to 3.41 wouldnt it be easier to just use mm with your NTFS HDD?

Since 2 years ago, the source code was released for the Cobra USB dongle, and developers created COBRA 7.00 (unofficial) Released & Implemented into Rogero 4.46 v1.00, and since them many Cobra CFW have been developed with no dongle being needed.


no he said it supports up to 3.50 but it has to be on 3.41

I merged your post into our ongoing thread, and to answer your question all the related files can also be found within it but to save some time searching here is a link to all of the attached files of this thread:

http://www.ps4news.com/forums/misc.php?do=showattachments&t=118726

This is the last news from their site as well:

Based on that, chances are if they plan to push new products they will probably renew their domain or get the site back online soon anyway.

Unfortunately, no CFW possible for CECH-3000 and up (and CECH-2500 with 3.60 stock), only ODE.

17 - 9 - 2015: Team Cobra is proud to present the next generation of ODE, the 5.10C.

Compatible with 25xx, 3xxx and 4xxx series consoles to 4.65 OFW. The 5.10C has inbuilt DMC (Drive Motor Controller) circuitry. We have greatly reduced the size of the PCB, with many optimizations in terms of components used. We are now running our own SATA core which allows for further speed increases and much more flexibility.

We have also worked hard to pass on the component cost savings to the end user, so you can expect a lower RRP from retailers. In short, the Cobra 5.10C ODE is much more compact, Flexible and faster design at a lower price!



We expect to start shipping soon, during October. Please reserve your 5.10C in advance by pre-ordering through Cobra resellers.

I don't think there is as classics need full CFW and ode is just emulating physical bd drive, better/cheaper option would be getting second hand ps2 and using ESR with FMCB, or getting fat model and adding network adaptor + installing hdd
