  1. Hate to say it but graphical issues of that nature are usually due to the gpu seperating from the mobo... aka the rrod. It's fine if you don't want to believe me, and I'm not going to argue about this or defend this, I'm the only one who has answered you and this is the most likely reason you are having these specific graphical issues that apparently persist through the dash into games and even the xbox dash.

It allows for the install and deletion of .pkg files from dev_hdd0/packages, dev_usb/packages and the standard Install Package Files locations. In addition to this, your downloaded PSN content ‘bubbles’ will appear under this option instead of cluttering your Game menu with uninstalled content. USAGE: Navigate to Game in your XMB and click on Package Manager (It will be where Install Package Files usually is). You will find three options. PlayStation®Network Content Manage your downloaded PlayStation®Network Content. Install Package Files INSTALL package files from Storage Devices and your PS3. PS3 Hard Disk (dev_hdd0/packages) Package Folder (dev_usb/packages) Standard Package Location (Standard Install Package Files locations) NOTE: The Install All Packages is only available by pressing the TRIANGLE button when the Standard Package Location option is highlighted because the PS3 will only install ALL packages from the root of a storage device as of the moment. Delete Package Files DELETE package files from Storage Devices and your PS3. PS3 Hard Disk (dev_hdd0/packages) Package Folder (dev_usb/packages) Standard Package Location (Standard Install Package Files locations) DELETING FILES: 1: Highlight the file you would like to delete and press TRIANGLE. The sidebar should appear. 2: Press CROSS on either Unlink or Unlink(Folder) (Both do the same thing for now). REBUG TOOLBOX Rebug Toolbox is application designed to complete the full function of REBUG REX EDITION firmwares. Besides from performing the CEX/DEX EID0 and LV2 Kernel Swapping it is also an FTP server and is packed with a bunch of other useful tools. INSTALL: 1: In the PS3 XMB go to Game menu 2: Select Package Manager 3: Select Install Package Files 4: Select PS3 Hard Disk 5: Select REBUG-TOOLBOX-02.xx.xx.pkg Cobra 7.02 Auto-Boot: Plugin System (sprx) ISO Suppport: PS1/PS2/PS3/PSP/DVD/BluRay Network Support: PS1/PS3/DVD/BluRay PS3 games with files > 4GB on external USB HDD (FAT32) Blu Ray Movie region free functionality[/size] NTFS HDD Support[/size] PS2 ISO Support for BC (HW) / non-BC (SW) Consoles[/size] Syscall 11 – Toolbox CEX/DEX Support *PS2 Support on Internal HDD ONLY: dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/ General Cobra Plugin Information Support for plugins at boot time:The number of vsh plugins has been increased from 1 to 7 slots. Slot 0 is reserved for use for iso plugins (netiso.sprx and rawseciso.sprx). Slots 1-6 are for boot plugins. Plugins are loaded in the following way: text file: /dev_hdd0/boot_plugins.txt shall contain a plugin path per line. How to Install a Plugin: Copy plugin_name.sprx to you internal ps3 hdd (ex: /dev_hdd0/). Create or Edit boot_plugins.txt in the root of the hdd (/dev_hd00/boot_plugins.txt) and add a line for the new plugin. Assuming you placed the sprx also in the root of the disk, add: /dev_hdd0/plugin_name.sprx). Add a new line for each plugin. Then Reboot PS3 Console! In the event of a bad plugin that crashing the system and causes a pseudo-brick A Safety System has been designed: Enter PS3 Recovery Mode and select the option “Rebuild database“. The recovery process, emer_init.self, will mount dev_hdd0 for a short moment, Cobra core will detect that and it will delete boot_plugins.txt. Cobra core won’t load vsh plugins when there is not VSH: like for example, in recovery and update modes. Cobra 7.02 PS2 Features (4.65 Cobra) PlayStation 2 on NON-BC Consoles Software (SW) Emulation:Support for PS2 ISOs in non BC consoles was removed in Cobra 4.30 (usb), due tops2_softemu missing. It has been re-enabled now by hacking of ps2_netemu. You can use it in the same way as before, just load an ISO and launch from disc icon, Cobra core takes care of rest. No need for encrypted isos, isos patched with limg sectors, etc. Just your normal PS2 isos dumped from discs. However, there is no support for optical discs in ps2_netemu.Note: Don’t forget to set the memory cards in XMB, in the old memmory card utility for PS/PS2, as ps2_netemu won’t let you assign them in game. PlayStation 2 on BC Consoles Hardware (HW) Emulation: PS3 Models: CECHC, CECHE, CECHA and CECHB Backwards Compatible (BC) Consoles will still use their respetive emulators(ps2_emu, ps2_gxemu), which have much better compatibility and also support optical discs, original or backup. IMPORTANT INFORMATION QA SUPPORT QA is supported in all REBUG FIRMWARE. It is good practice to enable QA for a smoother experience on any CFW not just REBUG. OTHEROS++ SUPPORT OtherOS++ is supported by all REBUG REX EDITIONS and will detect your existing OtherOS HDD partition. However none of the REBUG REX EDITIONS have emer_init.self patched (create smaller GameOS partition). We are working on a solution to this from GameOS. In the meantime if you do want to create an OtherOS partition you have two options: 1: Use a 3.55 firmware that already has emer_init.self patched to the size you want. 2: Patch REBUG 3.55.x REX EDITION in PS3MFW Builder If you choose option 2 we highly recommend that you ONLY patch emer_init.self. Also the resulting PUP will only be able to be installed on 3.55 firmware as the spkg_hdr will be mismatched. REBUG 4.21.x AND HIGHER INSTALL: From XMB install REBUG 4.21.x AND HIGHER over any 3.55 OFW/CFW/MFW or the same or lower firmware version CFW with spkg sig check patched or any firmware version CFW with spkg sig check patched and QA enabled. UNINSTALL: From XMB REBUG 4.21.x AND HIGHER can be uninstalled with the same or higher firmware version OFW/CFW/MFW or with REBUG 3.55.x REX EDITION on a QA enabled PS3 or with the ‘999’ DOWNGRADER if QA was NOT enabled.

  3. according to the E3 wensite and forum 4.55 is the ODE blocker. So if you really only need 4.50 you should be fine. http://www.e3-tech.net/index.asp for better help you might try here http://e3forums.net/index.php?board=23.40 in situations with ODEs and unhacked systems your only 2 options are update or go without. There is no way to fix the game to work on lower fw without peek/poke
  4. What ODE is it? What model PS3? Need to know that before even attempting to help.
  5. Cobra ODE News - Update The much anticipated 1.6 firmware update is now available for download. The biggest feature of this update is the addition of the new auto-eject feature. You can now switch games without rebooting and without ejecting discs. All from the comfort of your couch. The new auto-eject feature does not require any modifications to the ODE, nor does it require any new accessories or soldering, it is now available to all ODE users, from all models, with the simple update of your Cobra ODE. We have also added periodical polling of the HDD to prevent hard drives from going to sleep mode which made some games freeze if they had been paused for a while. The HDD polling can be disabled or configured from the cobra.cfg file. When Cobra ODE was first released, we had seen a huge amount of positive feedback, although many users had two major concerns, the first being the use of homebrew to achieve game selection, and the second being the need to reboot or eject discs in order to switch games. With the Cobra ODE browser support which was added in v1.5 and the auto-eject feature added in v1.6, we have resolved both of these concerns for our users. Today, the Cobra ODE looks like a brand new device with a completely new user experience, which we think will make most of you happy. The Cobra Team is the first to bring true "no eject, no reboot" feature to the PS3 ODE world for all models and we will continue to bring you new exciting features in the future.You can now grab the 1.6 update form the downloads section. Please refer to the user manual for updated instructions on how to use the auto-eject feature. We are also releasing an update to ps3genextra tool which generated the Cobra ODE Browser, please use this version with the 1.6 update. Concurrently, we are releasing an update to the Cobra ODE Manager which adds support for the auto-eject feature and in parallel releasing an update to the third party integration library which allows third party managers to use the auto-eject feature. Enjoy Tortuga Cove's updated review. Cobra has released their 1.6 MCU update which added a couple impressive features. 1. No longer required to reset or eject the system on game change. To do this you press the PS button then navigate to the disc icon on the XMB press triangle and select "remove disc" which takes you back to the XMB and enables a new game selection. (note: For superslim 4xxx model users, the “Remove disc†option is not available in the XMB, you can enable the “manager.on_reboot=1†configuration option in the cobra.cfg file and reboot the console or you can open and close the drive cover to switch back to manager mode.) 2. No longer requires a homebrew app launch to select games. So today I downloaded all the required files to update the ODE to latest MCU fw and then ran the required "genps3extra 1.1" The "genps3extra 1.1" app is a required PC app that enables game selection via the XMB, via a custom generated manager it builds based on the iso list in your game directory. To be absolutely honest I found the instructions in the manual requiring how to use this a little confusing, so let me break it down. When they say select the "COBRA_ODE_BROWSER" directory they mean the folder that comes in the genps3extra 1.1 archive. Then you select the COBRA folder on your USB drive. This must be done every time the ISO list changes on the drive. A small thing worth noting is the new manager is kinda hefty in size with mine taking 334mb. Upon testing it functioned exactly as they said with the game loading seconds after selecting, and a flawless return to the XMB upon selecting remove disc from XMB after mounting. These are great additions and made a good product even better. I stand firmly behind my previous review stating this is a good hardware solution for people who either want ntfs game mounting support on cfw or people on OFW 3.56 with no downgrade options. For additional info please see my first review for full info about this product, as this review should be considered a addendum to that review. ~igor242 (review was done on mcu update 1.6 and Cobra Browser) All links below link directly to Cobra's official webpage.

  6. I know many people aren't fans of ODEs, but here is our review. First off Cobra ODE boasts a feature list of: Supports virtually all PS3's including previously "unbreakable" 2k5,3k and 4k systems! Homebrew now possible on previously "unbreakable" 2k5,3k and 4k systems! Play games on SEN in pass-through or emulation modes**! On screen selection of games through Cobra ODE manager in XMB Emulation or pass-through modes Advanced Smart Fusion AES encryption and decryption engine on board Fully updatable high speed FPGA's and high speed secure MCU on board Updatable via USB storage Expansion ports for future proofing Simple and easy to use High quality components used throughout Built at a high tech facility Solderless installation on FAT*** and SLIM (2xxx and 21xx) series Easy installation on 25xx,3xxx and 4xxx series Slim and Super Slim series consoles with QSB (quick solder board) Easy setup for PATA or SATA consoles Advanced software onboard and frequent free updates BD Movie support to follow (In a future update) PS1 and PS2 ISO support to follow (on BC consoles in a future update) PS3 BD game disc dumping on all PS3 consoles is supported and can be enabled through third party managers (dumping throughput will be improved in future updates) **We cannot guarantee the longevity of this feature owing to the use of homebrew app to achieve it. As you can see a couple of the features aren't yet working so I was unable to review those. Consoles Supported: FAT: CECHA (PATA) CECHB (PATA) CECHC (PATA) CECHE (PATA) CECHG (PATA) CECHH (PATA) CECHK (PATA) CECHL (SATA) (most consoles)*** SLIM: CECH2XXX (SATA) CECH21XX (SATA) CECH25XX (SATA) CECH3XXX (SATA) SUPER SLIM: CECH4XXX (SATA) ***FAT consoles (SATA) CECHL, CECHM, CECHP and CECHQ with drive controller BMD-21 will be supported in a future hardware iteration If you have one of the consoles in red, its not supported at the moment nuff said. Ok on to the actual review. Cobra sent me a sample to review, and I tinkered with it hard. It has a couple problems, but nothing that makes it awful or unusable, we'll get to those later. First off lets go over install: I installed this on a CECHA01 that was running 3.55.4 rebug rex cfw. On this console Cobra ODE is in fact plug and play. A minor issue is that the FCC ribbons they send in package are a bit too long, and require bending to make them work and taping to secure the extra lengths, also the ODE must be placed in the proper location or the ribbons can be knocked loose by the ridges coming off the underside of the top shell piece. The location in the install guide was actually a bit off for me, and I had to spend a while tinkering with it to get it installed properly. A warning: Just because the cobra is functioning doesn't mean its installed properly or securely. Double check your connections, then check them a third time just to be sure. Turn the consoles main power on but don't start the console and check the red led in the back while replacing the top shell. If the led goes out, the ODE board is in the wrong place, and is being moved by the shell panel. Furthermore, using the ODE in a unstable setup can cause freezing and other issues related to game play, I personally had a unstable install for a while and wasnt aware, when the game froze the system became unresponsive causing me to kill power at the switch at the back. When i turned the console back on, the file system on the internal hdd was corrupted beyond recovery and i lost all data on it. UNSTABLE CONNECTIONS ARE BAD MM'KAY! Now then, knowing 3K3Y supports GUID partitions (hard drives with larger then 2tb on a single partition) I tried one on cobra ODE, they are not supported. The ODE didn't see the hard drive at all. Since this is not a feature they advertise anyways, consider yourselves warned. A 2tb WD elements hard drive formatted to NTFS with default windows cluster sizes worked fine however. How it works: Cobra's main manager is not pretty, but fully functional. You insert the hard drive with the proper files in the proper directorys into the rear USB port on the ODE (this is all covered fully in the user's manual). If everything is functioning the led should turn green. Once it turns green your ready to play. Boot the console, and insert one of the many supported discs (a full list can be gotten from them and its quite massive and they support a lot of games.) I personally had at least 3 that I have owned for years, including the USA releases of "Resistance", "Resistance 2", and "Genji: Days of the Blade". Once you insert a supported disc, the disc icon should come up stating "Cobra Manager" unless the ODE is in pass through mode. Pick a game or homebrew that's been built to function as a .iso, and the manager will tell you to either "eject the disc or reboot the console." Do one of those 2 things and when you reach the XMB again the iso you picked is now the Disc icon on the XMB. Pretty simple, and you're now ready to enjoy the game you chose. Updating: Updating the ODE is simple, turn the console off at the main power switch on the back, wait 5 seconds and you just place the mcu file in the root of a compatible hdd or thumbstick. Insert the storage decive you used into the usb port on the back of the console and turn the main power back on. It will flash a series of lights if it sees the update file then go back to either solid red (if you only have the update file on it) or solid green (if its on the root of the storage device you keep the cobra ODE files located). If you update the console while the ODE is installed, (I updated to 4.46.1 rebug rex after installing the ODE) YOU MUST PLACE THE ODE INTO PASSTHOURGH MODE Failure to do so will cause the system update to fail with a error code related to the BD rom drive. That's it for the ODE itself. However another thing Cobra did, was release the libraries needed to compile other managers to work with it. People have already discussed Multiman as a alternative manager, But I'm going to discuss Eleganz released by KaKaRoTo. While his manager is also simple, it boasts one important feature. After selecting a game when the "eject or reboot" text comes up. Simply quit Eleganz via the xmb, and the console will reboot on its own. You are now ready to play. In the end, Cobra ODE is a nice functional product that does 1 very nice additional feature in allowing homebrew that doesn't rely on specific cfw syscalls to function on non-softmoddable ps3's. It's a bit sad not all boasted features are available now, but im sure they will be supported in later updates to the ODE. All in all this product is a good product, and while many will complain about the price. Its not much more expensive then other ODEs on the market and I like it. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to either save space on their internal hard drive and not have to split files for external, or looking to avoid compatibility issues with internal/external hard drives with games, or looking for a easy method to mod ofw 3.56+ consoles, that doesn't require hardware flashing and possibly remarrying the BD drive. ~igor242 (review was done on mcu update 1.2 and manager version 1.1) All links below link directly to Cobra's official webpage.

  7. I think the hatred is people who have contributed nothing at all to anything, showing up out of the blue demanding the system change to fit your need's. LiNK is maintained in peoples spare time, as a hobby. As such it is always gonna be prone to downtime when errors occur as real life comes first. Furthermore adding a paywall defeats the entire purpose of link. so yea.... P.S. that whole VMware thing has about 0 chance of happening. It's not even possible as far as I know as to how LiNK works, and splintering the userbase is a lame idea anyways.
  8. You can buy the mod board by itself if you already have a 360 controller you want to use. On the 360 you have to solder that board to the controller. They also sell pre modded controllers. But I can't recommend you get either.
  9. Today I am reviewing Talismoons Wolf Controller 'Macros Mod Board' that also functions as a rapid fire mod. Wolf Controller Site (Please note: neither I nor any other staff of tortuga-cove support or condone cheating on xbox live, psn or any other online service. However what you do in your single player games is up to you) OK so for this review, I've decided that the best format is "The Good, The Bad The Ugly" Lets Start with the good. Wolf Controller boasts a feature list of: Talismoon Wolf Controller is the best of what rapid fire mods can offer: - Blue Tooth enabled : Log into your Wolf from any PC or Android device - Control over 17 buttons - Easy, drag and drop macro creation - Upload your macros to the Wolf and download them from the net - Record macros, live, in the game you are playing - Design how you want to swap macros, with the combination (or voice command) YOU selected - Configure your Wolf from any PC or Android device (with iOS and WP8 coming soon) - Wolf Pack mode for single player games: Add one, two or three additional Wolf Controllers to your ‘Pack’ and all other controllers can play in the single player game at the same time! - Voice commands!!! : Control your Wolf by simply speaking, from simple ‘Reload’ to complex macros with just the sound of your voice - Play old classic games from PS3/Xbox 360 market place with your PC Keyboard/Mouse or Android device - Lights: Wolf comes with beautiful blue Leds that you can configure on/off/flashing - Coming soon: Reload pedal add-on an more surprises! Some of these features sound really awesome, and even I had high hopes for this controller when I got the news announcement. On my controller the LED's work exactly as advertised. For a lighted controller mod it functions well. However This brings us to the bad, and the ugly. THE BAD Simply put, the GUI for the wolf controller is horrible. Its a mess to use, its not very intuitive, and adjusting the length of time each button is pushed, or even verifying the controller's programmed macros tested my patience to no end. That said, programming your own macros via recording button pushes is easy enough, and unlike the rest of the GUI this actually functions well. Also bad is the fact that Wolf Controller requires 3rd Party software to use the voice commands. Something not specified in the feature list. (They recommend: Dragon Naturally Speaking) However I don't own any Voice Recognition software so was unable to review that function. I also found the instruction manual to be kind of convoluted, and had a hard time finding the exact info I needed when a problem arose. When all is said and done, this is all arguably subjective and I may not have negatively reviewed the mod on a whole except for....... THE UGLY On the test sample I received the Down Arrow didn't function at all with any macros. This may not be universal, I don't know. When I sent a email to the "questions" address provided, I got 0 reply 24 hours later. This is a major flaw, because this rules out the feasibility of any macros that use multi direction inputs.(for instance a simple set of macros I tried to program was 1 button login/logout for all the profiles on my 360 these failed when directional inputs failed to be sent properly) Not only that but little to no customer support, to a reviewer no less, doesn't bode well for the average user. Also causing my to give them a negative rating here as this is a example of either their FW, or their install abilities, which is worth reviewing since they now sell the Wolf Mod Board pre-installed. Since they never got back, I don't know where the exact issue lies. I do know the GUI's test function shows everything working. "- Play old classic games from PS3/Xbox 360 market place with your PC Keyboard/Mouse or Android device" This also failed to work well, using the mouse means clicking on the picture of the button you want to hit. 9/10 times this resulted in the board recognizing a command but no actual command being sent through the controller to the system. Out of 30-40 different input attempts, I got 2 successful. Major flaws also include the mod board turning off if you plug in the Charge and Play cable, (thanks steveo187 for the heads up on this) I did verify that it's true. The controller is prone to dropping connection's via blue tooth, and the range of blue tooth is severely limited. (mine lost total connection about 5ft or roughly 2.8 meters from my PC) All this said, the Wolf Controller has the potential to be a awesome mod board, provided the flaws and issues I bring up are fixed, but as it stands now it feels more like a test build they are passing off as a complete product, and I have serious concerns about their ability to provide decent install jobs consistently. Also I take a little offense to their claim you can play using Keyboard and mouse, and their customer service really needs to improve. End Result Like I mentioned earlier, as a light mod board it works amazing however a price of $60 is a bit extreme for a simple feature like LEDS, as a rapid fire/macros mod my controller fell flat. Like I said it feels more like a test build they are passing off as a complete product. Serious bug-fixing and overhauls need to happen before I can stand behind and recommend this Mod. Igor242, This review was done using the latest FW and software on their site as of May 2nd 2013. Source
  10. Hello! We're pleased to present pictures of the final Cobra ODE hardware - Main PCB assembly. As you can see there are two switches which enable configuration of PATA (FAT consoles)/SATA (FAT CECHL consoles) and 2k,2k5k,3k and 4k series slim and super slim consoles. Cobra ODE is the first truly universal PS3 ODE bringing maximum convenience to end users and resellers alike. As you can see we've designed everything to be connected via FFC cables directly between ODE and console or console, ODE and daughter boards in the case of the 2k5,3k and 4k series consoles. A great deal of effort and time has been put into designing a system with best performance and maximum convenience for installation. We're working hard on the finalization of the software, stay tuned for further information.... More info on http://www.cobra-ode.com Cobra ODE

  12. 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.

  13. The talismoon fans in the slim are a different product, and outside the scope of my review.
  14. (note: This review was done using 100% fan speeds on both OEM and 3rd party fans) So, like most people with a phat 360. I have issues with noise off the fans. To see what could be done about this, I ordered and installed a Whisper fan from Talismoon Mods which claimed to have increased air flow with less noise. So taking a chance I bought and installed some Talismoon Mods Whisper fans for my 360. The install: The fans were well made it seemed. The plastic is strong and the fans didn't feel flimsy. The basic shape of them was the same as the OEM fans with only a slight issue getting the top metal piece to snap into place over the plastic clips and stay there. Overall it fit fine. How they stand up: Initially I was pleased. The fans were slightly quieter, with almost all the high-end whining noise gone. However regarding thier promise of increased airflow, the fans did not perform as advertised. I noticed a 5 Celsius degree increase on all sensors. While not ideal, it seemed like a decent trade (slightly higher temps for slightly less noise) However today, when i booted my 360 it became obvious quickly that the bearings were already shot. Shot in less then 2 weeks of use. While it may have been just my fans. I am unwilling to throw another set inside because those bearings could go at a time when the 360 is under heavy load effectively killing my box. I personally am unable to recommend these fans to anyone, if you use them, use them at your own risk.
