Yet another update from Max Louarn and Gary Wayne Bowser (GaryOPA) as follows:

26 - 08 - 2013 - Cobra ODE News - Download

Today we are releasing the Cobra ODE Manager + Llibrary with the list of compatible boot disc and more.

NOTE: You need to use GenPS3iso to patch your rip.

  • Cobra ODE Supported Boot Discs (Mirror:
  • Cobra ODE Manager (Mirror:
  • Cobra ODE Library (Mirror:
  • GenPS3iso (Mirror:

Finally, from Dracothic: Well I finaly Have the Cobra ODE working for the most part. The manager.iso is spoofed by the manufacturer as God of war III so when you start the manager the ps3 will attempt to download the 1.03 update for the game however no message to this effect will show on the screen.

Workaround 1 - Disable Internet connection - With the internet disconnected the manager will not try to download the update from psn and all should work fine of course with no internet connection

Workaround 2 - Cancel the Update - Even though you cannot see the msg on the screen pressing the O button a few times should cancel the update and the manager will load.

If you are getting a 8002... error when loading the manager simply go into game data and delete the God of War III 1.03 Update and reload the manager and the error should be gone.

Hopefully we shall see an update from the Cobra team soon that fixes the issue.
