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.

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

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.

Every developer has the right to protect his/her work by using dongle protection (most of them pretty poor at best).

As seen many o' times over on the GSM scene, dongles are being cracked/hacked/exploited for their contents. It's only a matter of time. Look how quickly all the other dongles were phased out - in what, about 12 months (less I think) we were pretty much dongle free (except FSM)

I'm glad someone can see how much 'work' exists in zadow's releases.

From Wololo (via PS3 Zadow's release a useless repost?

Yesterday I posted what appeared to me as a massive breakthrough in the PS3 scene, a bunch of files decrypted from the Cobra dongle, one of the DRM encrypted piracy dongles for firmware 3.55. The files had been released by user zadow28, who seems to have a fairly good reputation on some of the scene’s websites.

I have been contacted since then by several veterans of the PS3 scene, who told me these files are, in essence, garbage.

They didn’t explicitly tell me the word “fake”, but rather, it seems the files posted by Zadow are basically useless information, which in addition has been publicly available for a while. None of them told me “where” that information actually can be found, which for now I interpret as “it is so useless that we will not even bother to tell people where they can find the information in the first place”.

I do not have the tools, the knowledge, or the time to confirm if Zadow28 is a fraud, but I can say I am seeing a pattern I’ve seen in the past on the psp and the vita scene: unknown guy gets semi famous by posting lots of garbage that looks like the real deal, famous devs call him out for a faker, random people start some conspiracy theories about old devs trying to get all the credits, other random people tell the old devs that they should collaborate with the new guy instead of bashing him, old devs have a hard time explaining that it is impossible to collaborate with a dude who has the IQ of a banana. (I’ve been through that so I know how people like kakaroto feel.

So, if I’m to choose a side, I’ll go and trust the old dudes. If they say it’s useless, I guess they’re right.

From defyboy: Thanks but these were mostly available already. With the exception of your IDA DB of course.

Why do I constantly find things newsed as a release when it's just copies of the stuff the developers made available on the wiki long ago. This isn't a gift for developers, it's another cry for attention. The developers either already have this stuff, or know exactly where to get it.

I made a mirror on the wiki for anyone who wants his files:

From euss: At least I won't be needed to give zadow unself/ungpkg with sources and precompiles like his last readself2/3/4/5 fail (so much better to use scetool anyhow)... (which btw are all on wiki, /files and gitorious too)

I do not know who incepted this thread with nonbased remarks about Atmel AVR/Micochips PIC, but they should look closer to the content and what is needed for such target. There is nothing AVR/PIC related inside the filesets, just plain unself/ungpkg'ed files which where ran through IDA and exported i64/db files. It also does not make any sense to even /want/ it as a dongle, because if you have the PPU/SPU changes, it would make alot more sense to distribute it as patches (MFW Builder TCL) or live patcher: payload (payloader3) then a stupid dongle.

From CrashSerious: First, I've had some concerning health issues and haven't touched this for several months. Also, priorities were re-alligned in the process and haven't had a chance to pick it back up. So I have nothing to report... on to the main reason for posting.

I had a big long email started (about halfway done) detailing every file in there and just gave up due to the number of things that were junk.

Mostly, it looks like files we already have, unselfed eboot.bins (congratulations on using unself or scetool), a corrupt ida database, some meaningless/worthless logs and who knows what else.

I did look at the corrupt idb to make sure it actually "looked like"an idb. It actually did at a glaqnce--- so at least it's not like the last time and he was trying to pass off a linux binary as lv0 decrypted or some crap like that... oh wait... he did do that, didn't he defyboy .

Probably a better use of my time if I stopped dissecting the gift any ways. Zadow’s files are still available here if you want to give them a look, but it’s probably not the breakthrough I initially thought it was.

Finally, from flat_z: I am very sad looking at all news sites about ps3... when they keep posting any "shocking" news about such noobs as zadow28 and exposing him as the greatest hacker in the world

Hmm, cobra dongle payload hasn't been completely reversed by zadow, because he simply doesn't have the skills for doing that stuff, what he released is something anyone can do on their own, so it's of zero utility to get payload hacked.

yeah, with the improvements he done on MM I think he deserves to work on something that he can get something. He release stuff for free for over a year already, but I do hope that dean wont get mad on us who uses the dongle-less cobra.

I already have a Cobra, but if this leads us to a hybrid CFW with both features then it will surely be nice to be dongle free again.

i didn't know dean from multiman was behind the cobra dongle and selling it. i dont think its bad at all in his case. he deserves something he gave us multiman for hmm sake.. lol

i won't be using a Z pirate version of cobra out of respect to him but i don't really need cobra anyways. this guy is ding good stuff decrypting the dongles. thanks for the news

The perfect Cfw would have them all built into it. But this a start. Good job.

That's funny. I came on to see if I could find a way to make multiman play ps2 games without the dongle (I have a b/c ps3, so getting the dongle just for backed up ps2 games seems.. a little pointless).

I highly doubt it.
