From his site (linked above) on the PC application: It's a remote game mounter for PS3 DEX consoles. Requires the ProDG Target Manager to work. A x64 version is also available.

Finally, in related PlayStation 3 homebrew news andbey0nd has also released RCP_BDEMU v1.00 which essentially is a faster way to manage games on PS3 DEX consoles.

Download: RCP_BDEMU v1.00 / RCP_BDEMU v2.00 (10/15/2012)

From the author: Here is a separate standalone tool to serve the BDEMU communication on the PC side. It is small, fast and command-line type and will be included in mmDM 02.01.00 by aldo. It loads the BDEMU games in mM virtually at mM startup, mounts the games in 3-4 seconds and displays debug information in the command window.

[Register or Login to view code]

It requires that you pass the IP address of your PS3 as a parameter. You can pass a number for the number of BDEMU partitions as second parameter - the default is 4 (0..3).


Update: RCP_BDEMU v2.00 (10/15/2012) is now available (linked above) via deank with the following changes:

[Register or Login to view code]

If you don't set input parameters (IP and number of partitions) rcp_bdemu will try to auto-detect the IP and will assume 10 slots, but that only works if your PS3 is currently in "System Software Mode", otherwise you'll have to provide your PS3 IP address when you start rcp_bdemu.exe.

Today the PlayStation 3 scene profiteers behind the Sony protection circumvention device Max Louarn and Gary Wayne Bowser (GaryOPA) have announced (via that some new features are coming for their PS3 Cobra ODE including no restart.

Below are the details, as follows: The Cobra team is preparing to release a new update for the Cobra Ode, necessary upgrade that allows you to validate the selection of the game without having to restart the console.

The team seems to want to follow in the footsteps of the infamous E3 Ode Pro, even if the new firmware still requires removal and reinsertion into the drive, a process that would lead to ruin the player if used diligently.

We want to emphasize some of the problems that have been reported to us in the Official support forum, and the desire to let you know that we are working to release a fix as soon as possible.

The team is currently working to fix various bugs found in some hard drives that are not recognized by Cobra Ode when the data is formatted in NTFS, at the time just waiting for the fix to format the disk in FAT32.

For several backup if there is installed an update that stops working, the team said they had identified the problem and will soon release a new version for the instrument GenIso, the operation involves the use of the famous file IRD recently viewed on 3k3y Ode.

When you try to update the firmware of the PlayStation 3 in order to avoid problems it is recommended to switch from EMU mode PT and disconnecting any USB connection from Cobra Ode, will soon release a patch to fix this problem.

15 - 09 - 2013: Cobra ODE News - Update and known issues

We are releasing update version 1.1 of the COBRA ODE firmware. This update will allow you to validate the game selection without rebooting the console. Once the game selection is done through the manager, the game will be loaded after ejecting and reinserting the disc in the drive. Selecting the game by rebooting the console will also work as before.

Follow the update instructions from our updated user manual. We also want to point out some of the issues that have been reported to us in the official support forum, and want to let you know that we are working on releasing a fix for them as soon as possible.

  • There seems to be an issue with some specific hard drives that aren't recognized by the COBRA ODE when they are formatted with NTFS. While this only affects a small number of hard drive, it is a high priority bug that we will fix as soon as possible. In the meantime, if you are experiencing this issue, you can format the drive in FAT32 and it will work.
  • For some games, if the game update has been installed, the game will refuse to launch. We have identified the issue as being caused by the ISO file being badly generated, and an update to the Geniso tool will be released shortly that fixes it. The updated Geniso tool will give you the choice of using an IRD file to rebuild the ISO. It is however optional, and you can still generate ISO files without the IRD file, for those titles which do not have an IRD file, or for homebrew applications.
  • If installing a PS3 firmware update, the update will sometimes fail when the COBRA ODE is installed and in EMU mode. We recommend you switch to PT mode and disconnect USB device from Cobra ODE while doing a PS3 firmware update Online or from PS3 front USB , until this issue is resolved.

Soon after this update was release, I noticed a few people have problems, the most common mistake is plugging the FAT32 USB stick with the update in the front PS3 ports, this is not a PS3 update, it is Cobra update so it goes into the back USB port that the Cobra ODE device adds to your PS3, and second magento which has been very helpful pointed out the following, that made everyone have success in installing this update:

From magneto: Make sure you remove the power cable from the PS3 entirely, then plug it back in, the update only happens when the PS3 gets powered on, not when it's turned on.

The update takes a few milliseconds to finish, so it will seem instantaneous to you. The LED should flash very briefly, maybe unnoticeable, then becomes solid red to indicate there is no manager or database on the usb stick, or green if the fat32 drive you're using also contains the manager and cobra.db

17 - 09 - 2013: Cobra ODE News - Update

Minor correction for the user manual to clarify update process.

Cobra ODE User Manual v1.1b (English) is attached below.

19 - 09 - 2013: Cobra ODE News - Cobra ODE 1.2 update

We are releasing another update today to the COBRA ODE firmware as well as an updated manager and 3rd party integration library.

The problem reported earlier about the ODE not recognizing some NTFS drives was actually caused by drives using the non default cluster size. We have updated the user manual to specify that we recommend 4096 allocation unit size. Also, with this update, the ODE will now support drives with a cluster size of 2048, 4096 and anything above that.

We have also added another new feature. Now our manager reports the ODE MCU firmware version. The COBRA manager will now print the version of the COBRA ODE firmware. An update to the third party integration library will allow third party managers to display this information.

Downloads attached below:

  • Cobra ODE Manager v1.1
  • Cobra MCU update v1.2
  • Cobra ODE Library v1.2
  • Cobra ODE User Manual (English) v1.2

GenPS3iso v2.1 released for Cobra ODE users

Download: GenPS3iso_v2.1.rar

This release fixes up errors people were having in converting their CFW backups into proper ISO format. Team Cobra announced the new version of this PS3 iso tool for all of you that have your PlayStation 3's hacked.

We have been informed about a new update of the GenPS3iso, version 2.1 released today by the Team Cobra. Check it out:

20 - 09 - 2013: Cobra ODE News - Update GenPS3iso v2.1

Hello! We are pleased to announce that V2.1 of the Genps3iso tool is now available to download. The new version solves the error relating to game updates (8001003e) which some users had encountered. ISO's can now be regenerated with the Genps3iso V2.1 tool to solve this issue.

We are now also working on IRD support to be included in an upcoming Genps3iso tool release, which will be released soon.

Another update from PS3 scene profiteers Max Louarn and Gary Wayne Bowser (aka GaryOPA):

01-09-2013 Cobra ODE News Manager update:

Fixing an issue regarding game updates.

Download: Cobra ODE Manager Fixed (Mirror:

MultiMAN running on OFW v4.46 thanks to Cobra ODE hardware:

Download: Showtime 04.03.479 - COBRA ODE.iso / multiMAN 4.46.01 BASE (for BD-R and ODE).iso


Changes in Showtime 04.03.479 for Cobra ODE Version

  • This versions adds support for Cobra ODE

Changes in multiMAN 4.46.01 BASE for Cobra ODE Version

  • Supports games from /dev_bdvd/COBRA folder (that is .iso files in /PS3_GAMES folder of your usb hdd)
  • You can replace the original manager.iso with mM and have it as default ODE manager
  • It uses PS3 Demo Disc game ID and installs on your PS3 as "Game Data"

Both apps were tested by users with Cobra ODE and confirmed working fine on OFW 4.46.


1. Rename this ISO to manager.iso and place it in the /COBRA foldder
2. Place all you ISO games in /PS3_GAME
3. Run multiman.

Since you are on OFW after selecting the game you need to manually power off the ps3 and boot back up.

Senaxx recently received his Cobra ODE unit, and right away got to work on figuring how to get homebrew running on it, and with the help of DeanK, and Senaxx as a beta-tester, they worked together over the last 2 days and have gotten both ShowTIME and multiMAN running fine now on Cobra ODE hardware, and the best thing is you can now use multiMAN as a replacement for the Cobra ODE manager, it will find all your GAME ISO's and build a list of them, so even better!

multiMAN Running:

ShowTIME Running:

Our many thanks to DeanK for helping Senaxx in getting his Cobra ODE running homebrew, now he can finish off a full Cobra ODE review for us, and now everyone else can enjoy using multiMAN and ShowTIME on their ODE's.

Finally, from Dean Kasabow (aka deank):

For those of you who still use the builds I compile:


Download: SHOWTIME


  • Showtime 04.03.479 [CEX].pkg
  • Showtime 04.03.479 [DEX].pkg
  • SHOWTIME.SELF (for multiMAN)

and Showtime 04.03.479 [CEX].pkg (5.94MB)

Download: Showtime 04.03.479 [CEX].pkg

Both available for download in mM's WEB column.

So, I am using Rogero CFW4.46 v1.01 and MultiMan 04.46.01 (the latest version).

When I load up MultiMan for the first time it says "multiMAN cannot enable BD-ROM emulator. Functionality may be restricted! Error: Unsupported system firmware"

The weird thing is, the firmware is supported, and now I can't play backups from BD-Mirror, as the BD emulator is not working, when I go to the settings > BD-ROM Emulator, it gives me 2 options, None and (Unavailable). Please help me to find a solution to this, re-installing MultiMan didn't work.

Oke, now I did a re-install, and rebooted the PS3. It gave me now the options "None" and "Enable". Still it doesn't work with Enable

I did Enable again and rebooted, It works fine now! And now it says (Unavailable) again

Hmm, I found out that after using PSNope the BD-ROM emulator is not working anymore, I will try to find a solution.

EDIT: So I think it is because of the "Remove CFW Syscalls" option in PSNope, can there be made some solution for this?
