109w ago - 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 pastie.org/private/ugnucdtw6dcb0bjjhxbq) / 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

MiraElCobra what next?

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.

Finally, from ing_pereira (via elotrolado.net/hilo_informacion-sobre-ps2-classics-en-ps3_1862516_s40#p1731967660):

Here I leave the source published by Flatz (Proof of concept of ps2 classics decryption, the. ENC, the encrypted virtual memory cards. VME and CONFIG file tweaks) with notes in English and the script. Py python already prepared with keys of miralatijera again who does or leaves much of the work.

The binary klicensee no texts as always, I remind you need python and well maybe the code has errors at some point but this desconosco it since I am still in the process of testing a classic ps2.

This advanced for devs and theme they want to take a look at the issue of ps2 classics and encryption and decryption. Flatz With its analysis and work on the subject, miralatijera by keys.

Here are the Cobra USB PDF guides and files if anyone is seeking to tinker with them...
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.

Cobra USB Manager has been released. Can someone get it to run without the dongle?

Seem like they're using a modified Gaia as their BM.

Well I think before we see a CFW that copies it (or patches for existing CFW) we'll probably see payloads for existing dongles that add the same features. The ISO mounting is interesting because replacing eboots in an iso (cobra requires 3.41) will be a major pain for a lot of people and a split iso will be an even bigger pain to manipulate.

Thanks for the update barrybarryk and +Rep, as usual most will probably just wait until a free solution is available for CFW users I'm sure.

Ok there's been a bit of an update on the cobra usb site: cobra-usb.com

In the download section the user manuals (attached below) have shown up. Some notable bits of info are:

When making a PS3 Game Backup
4. You will be asked if you want the dump in iso or in the standard format. Choose the desired option and wait for the copy to complete. Pros and cons of iso format compared to the standard directory based format:

Pros
Support of backups with files bigger than 4 GB on external drives is possible. Iso files with a size bigger than 4 GB are split in parts.
Less files on hard disk, it can help to reduce fragmentation.

Cons
It is a less standard format for ps3 backups.
It always requires a ps3 disc game inserted.

So it handles games with +4GB files on external by creating one big iso file and splitting that into parts

Regarding blu-ray backups
Warning: although Cobra USB Manager allows original blu-ray movies to be copied, backups won’t work because of AACS copy protection. However, you can transfer these backups to your PC, decrypt them using some tool such as AnyDvd HD, DVDFab, etc, and transfer the decrypted iso back to the PS3.

If you have a blu-ray reader on your computer, you may want to do the full process there instead.

So again it just makes an image of the disc so they'll still need decrypting (Same for DVD movies with CSS protection)

And about PSX support
The first time a psx backup is going to be played, you will be prompted to install psx support. This process overwrites a system text file only used in jailbreak mode, and it only needs to be done once.

So it looks like it actually uses the in-built emulator and instead modifies one of the related files to allow launching it in JB mode (also supports both bin/cue and iso formats)

There's some more stuff in the guide that kind of adds to the validity of their claims but if you're interested you should have a look at the actual user guide. I just want to know what file it modifies to allow psx backups

I don't barryk, I have it in my ps2 but it would be a little inconvenient to reupload the images to my internal sata NTFS on pc and then rerip them to an internal w/e file format the ps3 uses for internal drives... I was thinking something more along the lines of an ide hdd enclosure and the usb 2.0 ports on the ps3... Or maybe network the ps2 to ps3 and load and play games that way.
