July 8, 2011 // 7:27 pm - As a follow-up to the initial news on JFW DH PS3 CFW, today DemonHades has shared a video alongside some details via Bhaal of their upcoming JFW DH PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware in action.

To quote, roughly translated: Here is how we are editing categories and relocating to give it more content and content management deployments. It really is not no big deal, but that you may know the new categories that would incorporate this new Custom.

First before anything we want to clarify that this thread is dedicated to community members and therefore DHorg the comments made about what this information is or is no longer cause is nothing more than mere envy, oppression, or that are to dispute. For outside the dates of publication and that are linked to circumstances that can slow or speed up the publication.

  • Back of the 3 RAW Flash to external media (USB)
  • Flashing copies from an external drive (usb).
  • Update the Preloader
  • Home of the flash write access (not necessarily more alejandro or substitutes)
  • The advantages are not required reinstalling all the PUP (from hardware checks) do not need to do: composite or go through the recovery

Services Packs

  • These packs include the basics in order to use plugins, loaders, ftp, etc.

Compatibility with Games and Applications

  • JFW DH uses a 341v2 core, this does not mean not being able to play all over now without patching.
  • The JFW DH is compatible with games that include between 3.56 down, including the current patched to 3.55
  • JFW DH runs natively games until 3.56 (original disks) without having to upgrade.
  • PSN games that require npdrm 356, are also supported without upgrading (the current cfw not give this support)
  • No need for a valid signature on the executable
  • Not going to make a port to 3.55 of this JFW DH, since it includes much more than himself 3.55

Members of the Project

  • Payload Cobra 50%
  • Linux 90%
  • Preloader 90%
  • Categories XMB 90%

  • Mounting partitions Flash write
  • The preloader can be updated.

TheGrid: TheGrid is a new category that includes a plugin manager, service packs, but also the name of the loader plugins. The plugins can launch tasks in the background.

Various details:

  • JFW The DH is based on the Firmware 3.41 v2 but is fully compatible with games requiring firmware 3.56 and earlier (3.55 patched games included).
  • Game discs that require firmware 3.56 or earlier without having to spend to update the console.
  • The PSN games that require a compatible NPDRM 3.56 without updating.
  • Executables do not need to be signed.

And the video of JFW DH: The video shows the personal side with a CFW Coldboot / Soundboot changed and a new category "RetroLaunch" Minis are supported and saves them (PS1/PS2 games and their backups will also be part of this category).

Those who wondered what the icon is black "JaiCraB", it must match the Firm USB Loader. DemonHades invites us to participate in their topic in order to advance the project as still no publication date.

Yet another update from Max Louarn and Gary Wayne Bowser (GaryOPA) as follows:

26 - 08 - 2013 - Cobra ODE News - Download

Today we are releasing the Cobra ODE Manager + Llibrary with the list of compatible boot disc and more.

NOTE: You need to use GenPS3iso to patch your rip.

  • Cobra ODE Supported Boot Discs (Mirror:
  • Cobra ODE Manager (Mirror:
  • Cobra ODE Library (Mirror:
  • GenPS3iso (Mirror:

Finally, from Dracothic: Well I finaly Have the Cobra ODE working for the most part. The manager.iso is spoofed by the manufacturer as God of war III so when you start the manager the ps3 will attempt to download the 1.03 update for the game however no message to this effect will show on the screen.

Workaround 1 - Disable Internet connection - With the internet disconnected the manager will not try to download the update from psn and all should work fine of course with no internet connection

Workaround 2 - Cancel the Update - Even though you cannot see the msg on the screen pressing the O button a few times should cancel the update and the manager will load.

If you are getting a 8002... error when loading the manager simply go into game data and delete the God of War III 1.03 Update and reload the manager and the error should be gone.

Hopefully we shall see an update from the Cobra team soon that fixes the issue.
