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.

This needs to be on the main page boss I almost mist this one. Thanks.

Our device has an advanced integrated Actel encryption engine to prevent device cloning. We also have several other hidden features which will prevent others from cloning our device. lol.

Nice, at least we now know their ISO format is standard so it'll make playing large backups from external a lot easier, and I won't have to re-rip all my old PS1 & 2 games. I'll still wait for an opensource (and hence free) solution for 3.55 CFW but playing PS1 & 2 backups is something my old fat PS3 needs and could get me through the summer games drought

Here is another update from their page with Cobra USB Firmware v2.0 and PS2 Support:
We have released Cobra Firmware v2.0 and Cobra USB Manager v2.0, which are both available from the downloads page. Changes in this release include:

  • Added the ability to play PS2 ISO backups from CECHC and CECHE backwards compatible consoles. Support for the remaining backwards compatible models, CECHA and CECHB, will come in a future update

  • PS3, PSX, DVD and BluRay ISO's can now be played without a real disc inserted in the PS3. Support for discless PS2 backups will come in a future update

  • Added an option for those users without a PS2 backwards compatible PS3 (including Slims) to test PS2 original games and ISO backups using the PS2 software only emulator which is by default included with all PS3's. Please note however that as the software only emulator is slow and very buggy, this feature is disabled by default and is only intended as a gimmick

  • Cobra USB manager can now make PS3 ISO's from backups in the standard "Jailbreak" directory format, using the copy function

  • Cobra USB manager is now less strict with cue/bin filenames

  • Bugfix: Cobra USB Manager was unable to get the PSX CD-ROM/CD-R title, and displayed "PSX-CDROM" instead

  • Bugfix: Under rare circumstances, Cobra USB Manager could dump invalid PS3 discs

The user manuals have been updated to reflect the changes in the v2.0 release. In addition, we have released a PC-side genps3iso tool which can convert backups dumped in the standard "Jailbreak" directory format to the ISO format supported by Cobra. As mentioned above, this is also supported directly within Cobra USB Manager however the process is faster and in our opinion easier to perform on the PC.

There is a video in the first post HERE of it in action, but I still can't see paying for something that will end up being free (like the PS JailBreak and Downgrade) so here it to hoping it makes it into the hands of some sceners.

Another update on the Cobra USB from their site:
We are pleased to announce that we are currently working on a solution to enable Cobra USB on PS3 firmware 3.55, with the release expected to take place a few weeks from now.

This will bring all of Cobra USB's ground breaking features to the more up-to-date firmware, with the added bonus of removing the need to perform the power/eject cycle to enable the dongle - this will become totally automated.

Support for 3.55 will be provided simply as a Cobra USB firmware update, meaning ALL Cobra USB dongles will be supported without the need for a new hardware revision. We will make further details available as the release draws near, keep an eye on this website for updates!

Me too. I'm mostly interested in general .iso support.

That's all kinds of awesome, I'll still wait for a free alternative though.

But PS1 and PS2 backup support is definitely a feature I've been waiting on for a while, given it only works with backwards compatible consoles it's pretty safe to say it uses the built in emulators and modifies gameOS to support loading the games in jailbreak mode. Definitely interesting how it uses .iso images and manages to avoid the reset problem.

They have updated! :-) PS2 .iso support coming.
14 - 05 - 2011

Support to load ps2 backups in iso format without the need of any other product will be added in revision 2.0 of the firmware and Cobra USB Manager. We're in the process of implementing this feature and expect to release 2.0 in 10-14 days. This feature applies only to models with backwards compatibility: CECHB01, CECHA01 and CECHE01.

Samples are on the way to review sites and initial pre-orders have been shipped out already. Stay tuned for reviews worldwide.....
