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
  • Showtime 04.03.240 [DEX].pkg
  • lastGAME6.pkg

Today Cobra USB has announced that 3.55 compatibility is coming next week, as follows:

We’re pleased to announce that development work is drawing to a close for our Cobra USB 3.55 solution. As previously announced, the new firmware pack will allow users running 3.55 cfw’s to install a new firmware console and dongle side which will enable use of the Cobra USB functionality, as well as allowing users to retain standard 3.55 cfw functionality.

Owing to testing and security implementation, the development cycle lasted a little longer than expected, but we are on track to release the new firmware pack sometime next week. Enjoy the new release and look forward to the next, there’s plenty more features and surprises on the way from the Cobra team...

Also below is a Cobra USB Manager Reskinning Guide from gliitch for those who own the dongle itself:

BEFORE:


AFTER:

Cobra USB Manager Reskinned Tutorial:

PART 1:

To make things easier please make sure that the following programs are installed before hand.

The pictures MUST be in 1920x1080 for this to work. A quick google will bring up aload of images in that resolution. If you have a picture that isn't in 1920x1080 you can create it with Infan View.

1: Once you have the picture you want, load up Watermark Image, this is where you'll be able to layer on top of the current image. Anyway, upload the picture you have chosen, untick "Resize Images" and "Use 3D depth map."

Where it says Output Format make put it up to 100, then change the output format to PNG. Click "File", you'll then be asked to upload the picture. Now click "Select Preview Image" This will bring up an image of the picture you have chosen.

IMPORTANT: If the picture is of the wrong resolution and not [1920x1080] the teplate will turn your picture black. Now, where it says "Image used for watermarking".

It is best to keep everything in one directory so you know where it is. On your computer navigate to the "Templates" directory, select "Template 1" and use that. So now you should have your chosen photo overlayed with the template you've just selected.

Once you've created the templates, you will need to rename them as

  • "back1.PNG"
  • "back2.PNG"
  • "back3.PNG"

Then FTP them into /dev_hdd0/game/CBUM01234/USRDIR/

Overwrite the exsisting files. Below is an explanation of whateach of the templates do.

Templates Explained:

Template 1:

  • X - Load
  • Square - Change mode [Games PS3 Blu-Ray DVD PSX PS2]
  • Circle - Copy
  • Triangle - Delete

Template 2:

  • X - OK, Circle - Cancel
  • Copies Disks to HDD

Template 3:

  • X - OK, Circle - Cancel
  • Settings

As I am a very avid fan of Final Fantasy VII and to show my appreciation, i've decided to go with a FFVII Based Skin. You can use your own images, but they need to be 1920x1080 also in full color. it's due to the manager itself the wording doesn't show up properly if you use a white or light based background ] We haven't found a way to change the fonts, or the colors used yet, but once we/ i have, this will be updated to reflect these changes.

PART 2: MAKING BACKGROUND & ICON

These 2 must be in PNG format, the Background should be in 1920x1080, which should be named PIC1. Any Icon can be used but it has to be name as ICON0

PART 3: MAKING THE BACKGROUND MUSIC & MAKING IT LOOP.

Now open up Audicity select the audio you would like to use [MP3] and drag the little finger icon across to where you'd like your music to finish. Go to "Edit" "Delete" so you are now left with a part you wish to use as your background music.

If you would like your music to fade out select the end, 3 seconds will do, and then go to effects and select fade out. Now go to "File" and "Export As MP3" you will need to install the lame_enc.dll file, which also be included in the pack.

Once this is done, fire up Goldwave, go to File and select "Save As" and select WAV. then scroll down and select ATRAC3 66kbs. Now click save.

Finally click on to GWAT.exe, drag and drop the pre-made X.wav file into it. Press "Goldwave" it will then say "X.wav looped" but it will save it as "Looped X.at3"

PART 4: USING PS3SFO EDIT TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THE MANAGER.

Fire up FTP on your PS3 and whatever program you use, to FTP into it. Go to the following directory /dev_hdd0/game/CBUM01234. (i'm not joking that is the cobra directory >_

I updated the first post with another video (also below) from DemonHades, with the following rough translation: demonhades.org/foro/viewtopic.php?t=4833&f=297
DH JFW entering the official Store

Nothing guys, as it has been speculated that it all was not true, that Thégra with JFW and DH are the really same as the other CFW, so here I leave a video with what we have and can do.

And thanks to everyone and especially for the video PS_Juan, sorry for chompy video because of rushing I took.

Soon the truth, only to see how the DH JFW while entering the store on 341 , and is dedicated to dospiedras pdnked EOL.




It appears to be in response to this "Dospiedra modified firmware" video by pdnked:

Rebug 3.66 CFW (Spanish) PUP: http://www.multiupload.com/KO3JZ2688N / http://www.megaupload.com/?d=8LWD3YNU (Mirror) / http://www.multiupload.com/KO3JZ2688N (Mirror #2)

Rough translation: Dospiedra modified firmware.

Details to note:

  • Only user-3.55 (no matter if CFW or OFW)
  • No turning back, pass over to 3.66 with all that that entails. Only you can downgrade to INFECTUS (dospiedras method).
  • No syscalls / payloads ... so that the burden of copies is disabled. For what is agreed is a firmware guy ... GeoHot.
  • The 3.55 homebrew installed no longer work.
  • There is no package installer (for now).
  • Full access to PSN.
  • Works on both Fat and Slim (as shown in the video), no tricks hardware and could suggest a user in the comments.

Of course, install under your own responsibility, nor do I Dospiedras not responsible for any errors or omissions performed by the user.

It has always been possible to add the 3.55 keys to any of the lower firmwares in order to achieve this. It isn't a 'spoof' - the keys are actually available for decryption.

The Cobra USB which allows playing of PSX and PS2 isos runs on 3.41. That feature would be included in this CFW. Plus, 3.41 currently allows the choice of several different payloads, which 3.55 CFW doesn't. The big feature of 3.55 cfw up until now is that you didn't have to patch or swap eboots for 3.55 games, but reading the feature list of this cfw would seem to say that it spoofs 3.55 well enough to run 3.55 games from disc.

  • ps2 only on bc ps3's ps2 sofware emu was a gimmick but never implemented on any ps3
  • psx backups on all ps3's slim / fat
  • no psn access
  • 3.41 v2 required but all 3.56fw req games will work incl 3.60 patched < 3.55cfw

i for one hope this comes to light

Adrianc1982 Afaik all can run with the software emulation found/fixed earlier, (CFW that is) but theese that only use softwares sucks i think that i mean really sucks, but atleast there is. (might be wrong, but i remember about it some weeks ago)

This is going to be one truly awesome CFW anyone knows why they choosed 3.41 over 3.55 ? if there is any advantages i missed?

Thanks for all the devs hard work

I dont think so, I think they are referring to those that have a backward compatible console that can play ps2 games will be able to boot backups, since the current firmwares are messy solutions.
