Following up on the recent PS3UserCheat dongle hacking news, today PlayStation 3 developer zadow28 has updated his ongoing work with some reverse-engineering and payload development research on the DRM-infected Cobra PS3 USB dongle.

Download: Cobra USB Payloads and Other Essential Files (77.33 MB) / Cobra USB Payloads and Other Essential Files (Mirror) / Cobra USB Payloads and Other Essential Files (Mirror) / Cobra USB Update v1 (350.88 KB - place these in the Cobra-USB_PS3_Updater_v1_0\CBUP43210\USRDIR directory) / cipher.ppu.elf.txt (954.98 KB)

It's important to note that these files are not end-user friendly yet, work still needs to be done by those familiar with PS3 PPU / SPU coding in IDA Pro by other PlayStation 3 developers to further develop payloads for dongle-free PS3 scene solutions.

Finally, below are some recent related Tweets via Twitter (linked above), as follows:

If you cant uses the stuff i post carry on. as promised i post all i find compared to others. Like secrets Hens that work on 4.11

Its my findings regarding the cobra, lot off reversed, and decrypted. Shouldn't be any trouble porting this to any device

Ohh almost forgot one off the most important ones goes in the Cobra-USB_PS3_Updater_v1_0\CBUP43210\USRDIR

Don't think Dean is gonna be very happy.but but.

Just an little test off whats ill be sending tomorrow. will explain also there

Just a quick note to people, the movement of the windows is super sensitive.

Over all though, amazing work. Can't wait to see what else he is able to add to the OS or mm itself.
