Finally, below is how to launch PSN games via multiMAN for those interested from sealhealy (via psx-scene.com/forums/content/tutorial-2280/):

Launch PSN Games from multiMAN like any other PS3 backup:

1. Install your PSN package game like you normally would
2. In multiman go into file manager and navigate to /dev_hdd0/game
3. Find the corresponding game folder to the game you just installed eg. 'Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell HD' = NPEB00527
4. Copy this folder to your USB game folder /dev_usb000/GAMES
5. Now rename the copied folder to something meaningful eg./dev_usb000/GAMES/NPEB00527 becomes /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527
6. Inside the [Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527 folder create a new folder called PS3_GAME eg. /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527/PS3_GAME
7. Now move all files inside /dev_usb000/GAMES/[Splinter Cell HD]-NPEB00527/ into the PS3_GAME folder.
8. Go back to your Game list and refresh it, the new game will appear
9. Mount the game
10. When kicked back to XMB start the game from App_home not the disc icon

Notes:

  • You don't always need to copy all files sometimes just creating the file structure and copying the eboot.bin and param.sfo is enough.
  • I also think the reverse maybe true for some other games that don't work copying only eboot.bin eg. leave behind only eboot.bin param.sfo TROPDIR in the /dev_hdd0/game folder.
  • Creating a shadow copy of the USRDIR may also work? Nope

27 - 12 - 2014 - Cobra ODE News - Update

We hope all our loyal supporters and users had a Merry Christmas!

We are happy to present Cobra 2.3 fw which adds DMC support across all version of Cobra ODE.

Installation instructions will follow over the next few days.

Download: Cobra_ODE_Firmware_v2.3.rar

In addition we are releasing a new accessory for 4.30A, 5.10B and 5.30A users. Instead of using the external clip on pcb to connect a USB storage device, you can now solder the Emu USB QSB to the second port of your PS3, which allows you to use your second USB port to connect USB storage for Cobra ODE.

If the USB storage is not present at boot of PS3, the port can be used for PS3 controller or normal XMB usb access. Check out the pictures below of the Emu USB QSB:


Also below is multiMAN ver 04.66.08 BASE CEX (20150104) PKG from deank with the following changes:

Download: multiMAN ver 04.66.08 BASE CEX (20150104).pkg (39.82 MB) / Showtime 04.09.021 [CEX].pkg (7.50 MB) / Latest multiMAN Cover Packs by ZOMBIEKILLAH

Also available online (and from the WEB column).

Changes:

  • Fixed issues when using more than one external USB HDD on Cobra CFWs (4.46-4.66+)
  • Fixed issues with homebrew locks/blackscreen/invalid-discs and other weird errors (CFW 4.65CEX/DEX and 4.66CEX)
  • Removed habib's patches and added two different ones to improve compatibility
  • JB games from FAT32 USB HDDs will be mounted as /dev_usb (and not as /dev_usb***) - this issue appeared in CFW 4.20. /dev_usb is always the first usb hdd which the ps3 manages to mount. When it happens that your game is not on the first/fastest usb hdd it caused problems. "Reset USB Bus" was introduced to multiMAN more than a year ago, but it is now added to mmCM, too, without actual reset of the bus.

If you're running pre-patched CFW (4.65/4.66) I suggest that you use a clean one. wM/mM try to restore lv2 to original state, but sometimes it may not be possible.

I already posted about the 1st change, and the second (for now) is to ignore PARAM.SFO and a faulty LIC.DAT processing when launching a homebrew (the PS3 tries to check these files from /dev_bdvd). I don't like this patch, but all the tests I performed are positive and all games worked.

This was all I can do for this weekend. When I find more time I may try to make it more robust and nice, but it will do for now. Please post back with your results.

IMPORTANT: if you are using webMAN and multiMAN/mmCM - UPDATE BOTH to the latest versions and restart your PS3 to start clean.

multiMAN ver 04.66.09 BASE CEX (20150107) PKG:

Download: multiMAN ver 04.66.09 BASE CEX (20150107).pkg (39.82 MB) / MultiMAN.CEX.Full.MEGA.RePacK.04.66.09.Plus.12,216.Covers.v6.8-ZMK.pkg by ZOMBIEKILLAH

multiMAN 04.66.09 is now available, too (online within mM and from the WEB column).

  • Fixed minor issue (mmCM) (regression from 04.66.07)
  • Added prompt to launch multiMAN if mmCM finds itself in non-cobra mode (fixes tiefputin1 issue)




multiMAN ver 04.66.10 BASE CEX (20150110) PKG:

Download: multiMAN ver 04.66.10 BASE CEX (20150110).pkg (39.82 MB) / multiMAN ver 04.66.10 BASE CEX (20150110).pkg (Mirror) / MultiMAN.FULL.12688.PS3.PSN.PS2.PSX.Covers.v7.0.(01.17.2015)-ZMK.pkg / MultiMAN.SMALL.x134.PS3.PSN.Covers.v7.1.Update.(02.01.2015)-ZMK.pkg

Changes in 04.66.09-10:

  • Fixed game covers for split ISO games
  • Fixed game backgrounds for ISO games
  • Fixed few issues introduced in .08
