Para o correto uso do Cobra ODE com o Firmware 4.55 do PlayStation 3, além da atualização 2.0, também é preciso fazer uma pequena modificação na instalação que evitará que ao trocar o disco de boot o console anule essa troca. O trecho abaixo é parte integrante do manual oficial de instalação do Bypass que está disponível para download (em inglês) na seção do Cobra no nosso site e que abaixo também estará traduzida para o português.

É uma modificação super simples e que pode ser feita só com a abertura da tampa superior do console (lembrando que ela só é necessária nos PS3 CECH 4xxx), consistindo basicamente numa ligação através de um fio simples de um ponto do Cobra ODE até o sensor da tampa. Se estiver seguro, você pode fazer a instalação apenas se orientando pelas imagens.

Super Slim (4xxx Models) cover switch installation (4.55 Bypass) / PS3 Super Slim (CECH 4xxx) instalação do mod do sensor da tampa

On PS3 Super Slim (4xxx models), from 4.55 official firmware update onwards, in order to bypass the new drive protection added in the 4.55 firmware update, it is required to solder a wire between the drive’s cover switch and the ODE main PCB / Nos Ps3 Super Slim (CECH 4xxx), a partir do firmware oficial 4.55 é preciso fazer a solda de um fio entre o sensor da tampa do drive e a placa principal (PCB) do Cobra ODE.

 Now you have to solder a wire (you can use any wire as long as it conducts electricity) between the left pin of the cover switch (Figure 2.17) and the RDX pin hole on the main ODE PCB board (Figure 2.18, close-up Figure 2.19) /Você deve soldar uma das extremidades de um fio – de qualquer tipo – no ponto detalhado na imagem abaixo.

The wire soldered to the cover switch (the color of this wire is different because it is two different wires connected into one, using one wire is recommended thou) can be seen on Figure 2.21. / Não repare na diferença das cores dos fios nas fotos mas eles estão ligados fazendo a devida conexão.

COBRA ODE 2.0 fw Release for V3 and V4/V4 QSV Cobra PCB’s including OFW 4.55 Bypass

We are pleased to present for release the Cobra fw 2.0 which has many new features and also initial support for OFW 4.55. Whilst the support for OFW 4.55 is not as convenient as on previous OFW’s, it provides a solution for those who accidentally updated or wish to use 4.55 directly on SEN. We suggest that users remain on 4.53 or lower if they wish to benefit from the full convenience of an ODE solution. That being said we are researching other possible methods for compatibility with the 4.55+ firmwares and will keep our users posted through the news on this site and various other forums.

Before using the Cobra ODE kindly refer to the 4.55 Bypass manual carefully. Please be sure to follow the prerequisite steps and ensure that you have updated the firmware on the ODE hardware properly first. Kindly note that 1 wire must be soldered to the drive door, which is detailed in the updated installation manual. The newly launched V5 QSV Cobra does not require a wire to be soldered for controlling the 4k series drive door, since it is bundled with a special adapter which takes care of this functionality via the included ribbon cables.

In addition to the 4.55 OFW support, we have included many new features which are sure to excite users and demonstrate the power of the Cobra ODE.

New features in 2.0 fw:

On the fly generation of browser menu system (no pc app required)
LED configuration
Full 4k auto eject system added
XMB enabled passthrough system added, use of hardware switch not required
Configuration of eject delay added
AES performance increased by 100%
Disc dumping via manager added
+ Many other tweaks and performance benefits added

We have also freshened up our user manauls to make installation and detailing of the full functionality of the Cobra ODE easier to understand.

As you can see the 2.0 fw release is a massive leap forward. You can be sure to expect more from Team Cobra in the months to come.

2.0fw for V5 QSV users will be released in the following week…

Read “User Manual v2.0″ and follow Bootloader update procedure prior to use FPGA update from MCU v2.0 (mais…)

cobra5.10b

Eis o novo Cobra QSV 5.10 B (para consoles CECH 25xx, 3xxx, 4xxx). Compacto e otimizado. Em  breve mais detalhes.

Furthermore, we are now shipping the 5.10B QSV Cobra which is more compact and runs on accelerated hardware giving faster performance. The Cobra 2.0 firmware will be released for 5.10B next week.

Numa revoada que teve aqui perto há pouco, um passarinho azul me disse que o Team COBRA deve soltar o MCU 2.0  - atualização de FW para resolver o problema de OFW 4.55 nos consoles SuperSlim (CECH 4xxx) – ainda hoje.

Sem mais detalhes, apenas que será preciso de um disco de boot extra, gravado em BluRay nos consoles SuperSlm, estamos ansiosos pela confirmação da notícia.

Blu-Ray

Tão logo tenha acesso aos arquivos disponibilizarei para vocês.

  • This CFW can be installed fine from XMB Update over OFW3.55 or any CFW ver <= 4.55

  • HDD can be swapped/changed and the CFW will re-install without any problem.

  • Patched LV1 to disable LV2 Protection.

  • Patched LV1 to add peek/poke support.

  • Patched LV1 Core OS Hash Check (to prevent Bricking on non-dehashed downgraded consoles)

  • Patched LV2 to add peek/poke support.

  • QA Flag enabled by default to allow for easier downgrading using Recovery Menu.

  • RSOD screen bypass patch for RSOD machines (it won’t fix the RSOD but allows the PS3 to boot fine into XMB)

  • PSN/SEN access is available but it’s not recommended.

  • It can run games signed with Keys up to version 4.55 without any Eboot/Sprx patching needed.

  • The CFW can be used for Downgrading with Hardware flashers with PS3 Flash Tool v4.55

Claro que a principal boa notícia é a compatibilidade com o firmware 4.55 oficial da Sony para o PlayStation, mas são tantos novos recuros que só mostram como o Team COBRA está investindo no seu produto, vamos a elas:

2.0 will pack these features:

  • Initial support for OFW 4.55 (Please read further information in news paragraph below)
    Suporte para o OFW 4.55, veja detalhes no parágrafo final

  • Auto-generate browser from the MCU, no more need for genps3extra
    Browser gerado automaticamente pelo MCU (firmware) não será mais preciso do genPS3extra!

  • Dumping of original games using the BD drive is now possible through the Cobra Manager
    Geração das ISOS de jogos originais direto pelo drive de Bluray pelo Cobra Manager!

  • Added support for XMB enabled Pass-Through mode, meaning user no longer has to use slide switch to swap modes and in addition playback of burned PS1 discs when used in combination with the game.disc_type=ps1 configuration option
    Adicionado suporte para modo PT (Cobra Desativado) pela XMB e execução de jogos de PS1 com o uso da opção game.disc_type=ps1 no arquivo de configuração

  • Increased AES encryption module performance by over 100%, now there is no lag in playback of IRD generated ISO’s
    Melhora (dobro) na performance no módulo de criptografia AES para eliminar o LAG em ISOs geradas com IRD

  • Added support for updating PS3 firmware without needing to switch to PT mode
    Suporte para atualizações oficiais do PS3 sem ter que colocar o chip no modo PT

  • Eject now possible on 4k systems, without need for user to open console cover

  • Added support for “eject.delay” option to specify delay in milliseconds before reinsertion of disc after it has been ejected on QSB systems (default value of 1000ms)
    Suporte para opção de definir o tempo de eject do disco em milisegundos antes do recarregamento em consoles com QSB instalado

  • Added support for “leds.disable” configuration option to disable specific LED colors
    Adicionado suporte para desabilitar os LEDS e redefinir cores na opção “leds.disable” no arquivo de configuração

We have been working on a solution for OFW update 4.55, which will fix the added anti ODE measures. The current approach will be more streamlined than solutions currently offered by other teams, however it is not as convenient as using the ODE on pre 4.55 OFW’s. Our R&D focus is now concentrating on other possible solutions to bypassing the 4.55 checks. The current working solution for OFW 4.55 will be released in the coming week. We advise users to use this update if they have accidentally updated to 4.55. Others who have not yet  updated may want to consider keeping their consoles on 4.53 or lower until a better solution is available to benefit from the user convenience of the ODE on these firmwares.

Em linhas gerais eles explicam que o time vem trabalhando arduamente para terminar o suporte para o OFW 4.55 e que este já vem na semana que vem e será melhor do que a solução já encontrada por outros times (talvez falando do E3 Team que vai exigir um disco de boot) mas não será tão prática como era antes do lançamento deste firmware. E recomendam quem ainda não atualizou para a 4.55 segurar um pouco pois pode ser que outra solução seja encontrada.

We can now also confirm that only 4k Super Slim series consoles are affected by the 4.55 update.

Those who have 3k / 2k5 Slim or earlier consoles are safe to update to 4.55

Apenas os consoles da série superslim (4k – CECH 4xxx) foram afetados pelo update 4.55 e quem tem consoles de modelos anteriores podem atualizar sem problemas para a 4.55

Só relembrando quem for atualizar o console para seguir esses passos para o drive receber a atualização necessária:

1) desligar o console;
2) passar o console para o modo normal (no caso do Cobra passar a chave para PT);
3) atualizar, preferencialmente, via USB.
