March 15, 2013 // 9:32 pm - Following up on his previous update and Flat_z's release earlier today, Spanish PlayStation 3 developer MiralaTijera has now made available the PS2 Classics keys and Cobra 6.0 4.30 PS3 CFW payload from the DRM-infected USB dongle by the notorious scene profiteers.

Download: PS2 Classics Keys / Cobra 6.0 4.30 PS3 CFW Payload (via / Cobra 6.0 4.30 PS3 CFW Payload (Mirror)

For those naive, it's no coincidence these PS2 keys and Cobra payload are just now mysteriously being released as the PS3 capitalistic pigs Max Louarn, Paul Owen and Gary Wayne Bowser (aka GaryOpa) ready their next ripoff product for market this month and (once again) their True Blue cycle repeats on even more unsuspecting victims unfortunately.

To quote, roughly translated: payload 4.30 cobra 6.0 xDDDDDDDD

base = 0x8000000000540000

From haz367: Just for testing this payload..loaded the "payload.bin" using his 4.31CFW and Core 2.6.5 /update4 and it seems to inject payload into kernel, comparing lv1/lv2 dumps is a mess cuse it's always different.. log of payload loaded into kernel.. then what.. lol.. back to my psu.

17 - 9 - 2015: Team Cobra is proud to present the next generation of ODE, the 5.10C.

Compatible with 25xx, 3xxx and 4xxx series consoles to 4.65 OFW. The 5.10C has inbuilt DMC (Drive Motor Controller) circuitry. We have greatly reduced the size of the PCB, with many optimizations in terms of components used. We are now running our own SATA core which allows for further speed increases and much more flexibility.

We have also worked hard to pass on the component cost savings to the end user, so you can expect a lower RRP from retailers. In short, the Cobra 5.10C ODE is much more compact, Flexible and faster design at a lower price!

We expect to start shipping soon, during October. Please reserve your 5.10C in advance by pre-ordering through Cobra resellers.

I don't think there is as classics need full CFW and ode is just emulating physical bd drive, better/cheaper option would be getting second hand ps2 and using ESR with FMCB, or getting fat model and adding network adaptor + installing hdd

hello guys.. just wanted to ask if there's anyway to play a ps2 classic on a cobra ode?

i downloaded fatal frame 2 ps2 classic and GOD HAND from PSN stuff along with its rap... if i tried to resign edat file within each game like i did with most of my ps1 games that downloaded from psn stuff will it work?

and if not is there anyway to make it work? i have Superslim 4.53 cobra MCU 2.2

i tried the resigning way with all of ps1 games and it worked awesome without any use of fix or crack so hoping for a ps2 too

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 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:
  • Official support thread:
  • Installation instructions:

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
