To quote from deank: Here is a quick update to multiMAN: Since my old server has no chance of going up again I decided to use my home "server" to restore the covers / themes / webcolumn / game-updates functionalities.

Please do not abuse it - it may get slower from time to time, but this is all I can do at the moment. This is the only change in this version (new update / online server) along with SHOWTIME.SELF 04.03.240 for mM and as standalone.

multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE (20130602).zip Includes:

  • multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE CEX (20130602).pkg
  • multiMAN ver 04.40.00 BASE DEX (20130602).pkg
  • Showtime 04.03.240 [CEX].pkg

  • bdRESET6.pkg

Hi All,

I'm new to PS3 and this forum.

I purchased a PS3 CECH-4208A PS3 (12GB) OFW 4.55 and installed Cobra ODE 5.30A. Red LED is glowing when i power on PS3 and I dont see any cobra ode manager in PS3.

I did only hardware install. do i need to do anything from software end?

I formatted pen drive in NTFS format and created folders as per the guide still no good

Please advice.

Thanks

thanks for the files, also from MixeryMaxe comes S-DMC, a Selfmade DMC for Cobra ODE users with details below:

Hallo comm

I would like to present an user project from two friends (GamersRS & esprit1711 from psXtools) and me. Around october 2014, a friend asked about the possibility of a microcontroller based project. And i just said "of course" Chipwelt from psXtools had built a "switchmod" as alternative methode to the DMC and GamersRS asked me about a "microcontroller based switchmod".

So the idea from the S-DMC was born

I had built a microcontroller (PIC16F628A) based circuit and had written a software in asm. The prototype looks ugly but it works


And here esprit1711 comes into play. He designed a real "eye candy" PCB and then the big tests began.


After finishing the big tests esprit1711 had kills few bugs on the PCB and i made an optimization the software for the PIC.
The final version was finished.









The S-DMC is for Slim models. The installation is simple, there are just 4 wires to soldering (+ 2 optionale, 1 LED for swap-magic signaling) and one little cut one the power PCB of the PS3. The S-DMC simulate the switch positions from bd-drive so you are able to swap the disc and the PS3 don't get it

Despite of the cuts on the power PCB i was able to preserve the original PS3 eject function. Function of the S-DMC are:

  • 1 click on eject button = normal official disc eject
  • hold eject button(~10sec) = normal official bd-drive reset
  • double-click on eject button = swap-magic for cobra ode

The official release was in early 2015 and until today there are no problems.
The end product works like a charm

More information:

  • First present thread: psxtools.de/index.php/Thread/65463-S-DMC-by-psXtools-f%C3%BCr-CobraODE-UPDATE-02-04-2015/
  • Official support thread: psxtools.de/index.php/Thread/66781-SUPPORT-S-DMC-f%C3%BCr-Slim-PS3s-excl-bei-psXtools-de/
  • Installation instructions: psxtools.de/index.php/Thread/67969-Tutorial-offizielle-Anleitung-f%C3%BCr-S-DMC-by-psXtools-de/

Credits goes to:

  • Chipwelt
  • GamersRS
  • esprit1711

Have fun

Update: Hi, today i received new information from Chipwelt. Ok as i said, i don't have a ODE and i don't use the S-DMC.

It can also be used without ODE to swap psx (and *ps2) backups even on OFW.
e.g. insert an original psx game in the ps3 and wait until the disc icon is appear in xmb, than double-click on eject button (for swap-trick) and now you can insert any psx backup and play again, EVEN on OFW .... crazy that i didn't know that.

*ps2 backups of course only on bc models. But in the same way as with psx games. Ok, at this time the S-DMC is only for slim models but this can be changed if there is a demand

Chipwelt released a video in november 2008 with a switch-mod and show a ps2 swap on a cecha model

7 - 3 - 2015 Cobra ODE News - Update

We are pleased to present the Cobra ODE FW 2.4 wich properly adds support for the Emu USB QSB and addresses a number of small bugs we found in particular with the drive door support for 4k consoles. We have updated the DMC triggering mechanism for enhanced performance.

The game database file has also been updated to include many new titles.

We are unable to fully support FAT PATA consoles with DMC owing to issue with BD recordable media compatibility and a multitude of different bluray drive daughterboards. FAT SATA consoles with BMD-31 will remain supported. If you have purchased DMC for PATA FAT consoles, you may return it to your reseller for a refund.

DMC will be kept fully supported on FAT SATA (BMD-31), 2k/2k1, 2k5 and 3k consoles.






Since we have removed the Hardware Passthrough mode from ODE FW 2.4, we suggest that users use ODE FW 2.2, if they wish to update the OFW of their console to 4.66. ODE FW 2.2, still has the option to enable HW Passthrough mode providing you are using the USB Clip on PCB. After updating the console OFW to 4.66 you can update to ODE fw 2.4 again.

Finally, from coalchamber1022: (DMC + OS 4.7 + CECH-2001A)

Hi Guys, Formalities...

PS3 OS: v4.7

ODE FW: 2.4
DMC: v1.0
Boot Disc: ModNation Racers (BCAS20105)
Swap Disc: Verbatim 25 GB 6x SL (LINK)

I got things hooked up, loading a game is still a bit of a PIA but it works.

  • After plugging in my HDD with my games on it I plug my PS3 into power then boot it up.
  • I then put in by Boot disc I see the cobra menu and select a game.
  • I then get a what looks to be a video of just the cobra icon at that time I eject my boot disc then just put the boot disc back in. It then loads up the game selected in the XMB
  • I then hit 'x' to start the game the bootdisc then pops out then the ode flashes red/blue so i leave the boot disc and let it suck back in.
  • Then in a few seconds it ejects again then ODE flashes green/blue I then pop in swap and BADABOOM it loads up.




With that many ejects and loads I am anticipating my BD drive to crap out soon. Hopefully cobra team can lower the number of ejects but in any case it works!!

I just upgraded my old Cobra to a newer updateable version today!

On 4.66 it seems Sony are catching and winning the race with ODE's. Anyway, I do have a swap disk which means I am sorted for now...

All Cobra ODE users should avoid updating to OFW 4.70 until Cobra Team has carried out extensive testing.

Some videos on 4.70:

I do not think it worth buying it go with what we have today with all PS3 already possible and with the minimum of expense.
