Boys is a bit 'of time we have ready a cfw ps3ita 4.50 dex with patch cobra.. BUT we can not release it if we do not solve this problem..

The PS3 games (in format ISO and JB) are not mounted in disk-less mode, seems that device types is not recognized as valid... Debug log (when i try to mount a ps3 iso from iris manager):

Thanks for this info/news, I have a friend who's going to be very interested in this especially as he's stuck on PS3ITA 4.50 and I know for sure would benefit from the Cobra features!

Glad it's finally out in the wild. Thanks to all the devs who made this happen!

New_core replaced the file sys_init_osd.self, it responsible for initiating the System Manager, change of console id and removal of the stage0 and stage1 if mode NORMAL is active.

The CFW can be installed over OFW/CFW 3.55 DEX and each CFW DEX with spkg check patched (example: PS3ITA 4.50 DEX, PS3ITA COBRA 4.50, PS3ITA 4.55 DEX)


  • Removed ecdsa check from appldr, isoldr, lv1ldr and lv2ldr
  • Removed "lv2 memory protection" of appldr
  • Patched lv1 to add support to lv1 peek, lv1 poke and remove Core OS Hash Check
  • Patched lv2 to add lv2 peek, lv2 poke, lv2_lv1 peek, lv2_lv1 poke and lv2_lv1 call

The homebrew CFW Setup allows you to configure the CFW:

  • Change between COBRA and NORMAL mode
  • Enable or disable webMAN (only if COBRA mode is active)
  • Enable or disable System Manager (only if NORMAL mode is active)
  • Change the fan speed (only if normal mode is active)
  • Re-enable the options "Backup Utility" and "Media Server Connection"
  • Change the console id. The inserted console id is applied automatically at boot time.
  • Restore the original console id (EID5)


  • Install or remove the spoof 4.70 on the CFW 4.50 DEX, 4.50 COBRA DEX e 4.55 DEX


For a more detailed description, in the homebrew CFW Setup press the START button on the desired option.


COBRA (enabled of default)

Adds many features to the CFW:

  • Support to PSP, PSX, PS1, PS2, PS3 ISO
  • Network support to PSP, PSX, PS1, PS2, PS3 ISO
  • Auto-boot of plugins (sprx) at boot time (ex. webMAN)
  • Support to HD formatted in NTFS


If the NORMAL mode is active the CFW acts like a normal CFW DEX and you can use the System Manager.


webMAN enabled of default. Allows to boot your backup directly from the XMB and automatically regulates the fan speed.

Do not recommend it.. but.. if you want that the fan speed is adjusted from ps3 system (syscon), only enter in the webman setup and uncheck "Dynamic fan control"


  • ISO PS2: the usually infamous wireless pad sync issue on PS3 not backward compatible!
  • Some (few) original game disk seems does not work in the cobra mode, to solve the problem change the mode to normal..


Team Rebug (especially to Joonie), Malin, Estwald, The Three Musketeers, Graf Chokolo, failOverflow, Aldo Vargas (webMan MOD), Deank, Miralatijera, Naehrwert, All testers, thank you very much guys!!


Carlo (for having donated us a PS3 Slim and test the CFW) and Pablo (for having donated us a PS3 FAT) Thanks guys!!! Without you we will never have finished the CFW.

Update: PS3 CFW PS3ITA Cobra 4.65 DEX v1.1 - Fix for Game Disc in Mode Normal (error 0x8001003D)

  • Install and start new version of CFW Setup (v5.0.1) wait the reboot of console..
  • Try games that did not work before

NOTE: The procedure must be done only one time.

If you have not yet installed the CFW you can skip this procedure, the fix has been integrated into the CFW v1.01:

Use one of these Backup Managers:

NOTE: Ps3ita Manager does not support this CFW!!!

  • No it doesn't support new ps2 iso method
  • Removal of stage1 and restore of stage0 is done from new_core..
  • No lv1_peek full was not added
  • We also remove old lv2 patches (psgroove style) from stage2 and replace it with those of Iris Manager..
  • Webman is copied to /dev_hdd0 after the first install of CFW and file boot_plugins is created..
  • Some patch in modulepatch.c was removed..
  • Ah.. only source of new_core is not updated yet at last version.

Update #2: PS3 CFW PS3ITA Cobra 4.65 DEX v1.2

We have updated the CFW and CFW Setup. This should fix the compatibility issue between webMAN and CCAPI. No more freeze at boot of console!

NOTE: If you have installed CCAPI and use the cfw in Mode NORMAL, the System Manager will be disabled. This is because CCAPI going to affect the proper functioning of the System Manager. Unfortunately we did not find a remedy to this, if we had source of CCAPI we will be able do something.

To install the fix you have 2 options:

  • Install and run CFW Setup v5.0.2
  • Install the new version of CFW PS3ITA COBRA 4.65 DEX (1.0.2)


If you install the new version of CFW4.65 DEX (1.0.2) to change the options used version 5.0.2 of the CFW Setup (DON'T USE OLDER VERSION!

Following yesterday's PS3 4.70 Firmware Update by Sony and their previous release, today Italian PlayStation 3 developer Rancid-o released PS3 CFW v4.9.9 Setup Spoof for PS3ITA 4.50 DEX, 4.50 DEX Cobra and 4.55 DEX Custom Firmware with details below.

Download: cfw_setup_v4.9.9.pkg / cfw_setup_v4.9.9.pkg (Mirror) / SRC-cfw_setup_v4.9.9.rar / SRC-cfw_setup_v4.9.9.rar (Mirror)

To quote, roughly translated: SPOOF 4.70 PER CFW PS3ITA

We only found a way to make a true spoof to fw 4.70!

The VSH has not been replaced with that of the firmware 4.66 (or similar crap), we only applied a small patch at VSH (two NOP and the magic is done)

The spoof is compatible with the following CFW PS3ITA: 4.50 DEX, 4.50 DEX COBRA, 4.55 DEX. You can install it using the new version of CFW Setup (v.4.9.9).

Installation is very simple:

  • Download CFW Setup v4.9.9 from here (linked above).
  • Install it on your PS3
  • Run it
  • Select the option "Install Spoof 4.70"
  • Wait the restart of console
  • Enjoy

IMPORTANT!! The risk of BAN is always high (perhaps even increased). Ps3ita assumes no responsibility for any ban of your account or console. Everything is at your own risk. If you do not want be banned not connect your PS3 to PSN! You have been warned!

See you soon guys.. (the release of CFW PS3ITA COBRA 4.65 DEX is really close )


Get an hex editor, search in the VSH the bytes 409E003C 48000010, replace it with 60000000 60000000.


From kokotonix: There are new certs, new changes, some unknown. At this moment, using a version spoofer, not considering all the changes introduced in 4.70, is asking to be banned ! We should wait for the new cfws (that already started to appear).

PlayStation 3 developers FM|T Enstone also privately released a PS3 4.70 Spoof Fixer for Custom Firmware (CFW) users with a demo video and details below.


My Theme-Lines.qrc and Rebug XMB Logo Installer:

Download: My ps3 theme Rebug logo An Lines.qrc.7z

Full Lines.qrc Thread Custom lines.qrc Thread

About This Video

  • You need to have one of FMT's mod menus from
  • Once got, download the menu the psn fixer will be with the menu in a serparate folder.
  • Sign in an go to my applications to download your purchased menu. The fixer will be inside the rar.
  • If you already have a menu go to applications an re-download the menu an the fixer will be in the rar file.

Warning: If you have any kind of pkg spoof or modified VSH re-install your CFW from XMB. Remove any physical PS3 disk an disconnect PS3 from Internet before installing any CFW.

And then follow the video.. Enjoy. Thanks to FM|T and Enstone for the fix.

From DjSpikelton: PS3 4.70 Spoof for HABIB Cobra (100% working)


So as you guys can tell, Sony just released OFW 4.70. Since most spoofers for non-cobra users are useless right now, it still works for people using COBRA CFW.

PSNPatch 4.66.3 by KW EDITED TO 0470 SPOOF using the one: PSNPatch Updates

  • Install the PKG file that comes with the download and install on ps3.
  • PLACE PSNPATCH.cfg file on the root of usb and plug into PS3.
  • Go onto PSNPATCH and at the bottom it should say cobra toolbox open that and there should be an option to spoof to 4.70.


1. Delete psnpatch (for others who have tried and it didnt work)
2. Reinstall psnpatch but dont run it yet
3. Navigate to dev_hdd0/game/BLJS10018/USRDIR/ (Using multiman) and paste the psnpatch.cfg file
4. Start up psnpatch, now press select, now DISABLE/REMOVE webMAN, as webMAN is also spoofing to 4.66 yet the PS3 is going to 4.70 and is creating a Conflict.
5. Press Left on D-pad, then press Start, then X. PS3 will restart, webMAN is now gone (you can get it back)
6. Now go back into psnpatch and re-do the spoof, now it will work.
7. redo the spoof if you enable webman but you will need to disable everytime to spoof to 4.70

CREDITS go to other people around the Web but sadly i cant get it to work, this is the only way i have been able to get it to work.

IF YOU GET X.XX YOU HAVE DONE IT WRONG.. after webman is disabled you need to restart psnpatch and press select where it says cobra toolbox then triangle then start.

PLEASE post below if you got it working and i haven't tried other homebrews on it yet so please post what you got to work and what you haven't.

From Joonie86: Thanks all for trying hard on your own way to work things out, however Team REBUG will not support high risk method of spoofers for older CFWs. I would rather take a nice break until I get a hold of DEX OFW 4.70.

4.66.1 was ready a month ago but we did not intend to release. Currently old method of 4.70 Spoof works fine on 4.66.1 REX/D-REX but I would prefer not to release anything until I gather enough feedback from other cfws or spoof and etc..
