Lots of update for Cobra ODE users this week as they hit v2.2. Along with the updates they announce Cobra DMC which allows bypassing of OFW on older PS3 models.
[Souce 1, 2]
We are happy to release the 2.2 update for all Cobra versions including the 5.1B and 5.3A PCB revisions V5.x boards, we have increased USB read speeds by 40%* and further improved the success rate of swapping discs for the bypass.
Furthermore, we have added support for 4.60 ofw bypass and new bypass tools (applicable to all Cobra ODE versions v3.x, 4.x and 5.x)
We have also added a another nice features, auto region patching for psx games.
Various fixes for stability and configuration have been added, please refer to the changelog in the mcu update folder.
V5.30A users please note that a bug has been fixed in the 2.1 firmware which caused ISO’s not to load if the drive door was not toggled open and then closed. Please ensure you update to the 2.2 Cobra ODE fw asap.
We have now successfully bypassed 4.60 ofw on older PS3 consoles (PATA, SATA FAT, 2k, 2k5 and 3k models). An additional hardware module (Cobra DMC) is required and will be sold bundled with 5.10B or 5.3A versions of the Cobra ODE.
The Cobra DMC hardware module also supports in tradition with Cobra philosophy all previous versions of the Cobra ODE (V3.x and 4.x) hardware and may be purchased from your local reseller soon.
The cobra 2.3 firmware will be released simultaneously with release of the DMC hardware module.
Photo’s of the Cobra DMC will follow next week.
NOTE: Cobra ODE v3.x and 4.x users already on 2.1 firmware can ignore the FPGA update files.
