    Nice to see development continuing. When these USB dongles originally came out I wondered if they would see updates and support, or if they would just be novelty, so it is nice to be proved wrong.

    The PSP support is definitely a nice addition. I also like the previous additions of full PS2 support with both ISO and discs being supported, and region free. That for me would be my biggest reason for utilising this.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!

    Cobra USB was updated again, better compability with PSP games and able now to save PSP data.

    25 - 10 - 2011

    - New firmware update, mainly focused on improving PSP support.

    - Improved compatibility with psp games. Some of the games that crashed early now run.

    - Added support for PSP savedata. Please note that in the previous release, savedata worked for isos that were generated from psp minis games. However, those savedata are incompatible with this new firmware. You can see psp savedatas under the ps3 savedata section in the XMB, not under the minis one.
    If savedata still doesn't work in some game, please send us a message to our support email address.

    - Cobra USB Manager will now give an error when trying to load a prometheus patched PSP iso, as those aren't compatible with the PSP emulator.

    - Added Cobra USB PS3 Updater to the download section. With this tool you can update the dongle using the PS3, require Cobra Firmware 4.0+ to work. Refer to the manual for instructions..

    4.3 released:

    07 - 12 - 2011

    Cobra-USB Firmware v4.3 CHANGELOG


    - Increased the compatibility of games in JB directory format (fix for the so called black screen games, that were only working in iso format). In Cobra USB, you don't need to set any special option or key combination in multiman for these games to work, just start them normally. Unlike in regular CFW, in Cobra USB these games work also in internal hdd.
    - At the request of customers, vsh.self of Cobra USB CFW can now be replaced by the ReactPSN one (only by the one of 3.55k folder) without loosing any Cobra functionality.

    Multiman for Cobra 03.01.00 CHANGELOG


    - Improved loading of PSP ISO files when no disc is inserted

    - Support for cover art for PS2 ISO/CUE+BIN in Retro column
    - Support for cover art for PSX CUE+BIN in Retro column and for PSX discs
    - New THEME format (.thm). One theme - one file. Easy installation within mmCM without going to XMB to install theme pkg files.
    - mmTM - Easy to use PC application to create thm files from folders (separate download).
    - mmCM will try to read disc volume labels and display in VIDEO column (BD/DVD entry) and in other display modes.
    - >>> ISO images created from such discs (BD/DVD/AVCHD) will get the disc volume label as file name for the ISO.
    - Fixed extracting ICON0.PNG from PSP ISO images saved on external USB drives
    - Added indication (rotating refresh icon next to the column icon) when mmCM is loading/extracting title thumbnails (XMMB mode)

    - Added pop-up notification when mmCM successfully connects to nethost folders during startup (/net_host# in File Manager)

    - Added support for copying big (4+GB) files in File Manager to USB drives. mmCM will split source file when copying to USB.
    - Added "Copy" function to SIDE menu for BD/DVD/PS2/PSP/PS3 ISO images (supports joining and splitting depending on source and destination drives)

    The newest version v5 has again very nice features added, such as ISO games playable via network, and much more like "Added dynamic firmware version spoofer capabilities."

    In further releases:

    From network:

    * PS3 games in JB directory format (planned for 5.1 release)
    * PSP isos (planned for 5.1 release)
    * PS2 isos (planned, but we cannot estimate the version)


    Now that would be the ultimate!!

    EDIT: Btw, I just ordered one now, cannot go wrong with 33,80€ and free shipping

    Changelog of Cobra USB Fw 5.0:

    - Added support to play isos from a PC using network connection. No more waste of time copying between PC and ps3, play directly from the files on your computer!

    Requires to run the supplied ps3netsrv server application (it is inside mmCM 04.01.00 download) on the PC, a version for windows and linux is provided (mac users can use the windows version with wine
    Note: when using wine, we recommend to run directly the command line ps3netsrv.exe and not the gui).

    Currently the following items can be played from network:

    * PS3 isos
    * PSX cue+bin or isos
    * Blu-Ray isos
    * DVD isos

    Currently the following items cannot be played from network:

    * PS3 games in JB directory format (planned for 5.1 release)
    * PSP isos (planned for 5.1 release)
    * PS2 isos (planned, but we cannot estimate the version)

    Although Cobra doesn't restrict the isos from being loaded through wifi, wifi is too slow for most uses, we recommend to use a wired connection.

    - Optimized a bit the read of PS3 isos (15-20% gain in external disk, not noticeable in internal disk)

    - Added dynamic firmware version spoofer capabilities. You can set the spoof in mmCM settings. As Sony release new firmwares, the spoofer can be updated by updating mmCm, without
    need of updating Cobra USB fw. No system files are modified by the version spoofer, all take place in ram.

    Changelog of mmCM 04.01.00:

    * Changed: Nethost PC server application "ps3serv" is replaced by new windows/linux application "ps3netsrv"

    * Added support for playing PS3 and PSX games in ISO/CUE+BIN format from remote net_hosts (PCs connected to the LAN)

    * Added support for playing Blu-ray and DVD-Video movie titles in ISO format from remote net_hosts

    ! NOTE: For best performance and compatibility of the new net_host interface, a WIRED network may be required (Wi-Fi is also supported)

    ! NOTE: Root folders served by remote hosts must contain /PS3ISO, /BDISO, /DVDISO and /PSXISO folders to enable remote content

    * Added new option in SETTINGS column: "Network Servers" for setting up to 10 remote nethost IP:PORT values

    * Removed: *nethost* settings from options[_default].ini are ignored and no longer supported

    * Added new option in SETTINGS column: "System Firmware Version" for "spoofing" current FW version to 4.00 or higher

    * Added support for thumbnail images for remote BD/DVD/PS3/PSX ISO/BIN+CUE files (*.jpg / *.png)

    * Added support to copy files from one net_host to another

    * Added support to delete folders from remote net_host

    * Added support to view files in TextViewer from remote net_host folders

    * Added support to copy games and ISO images to remote host from SIDE menu ([TRIANGLE] in XMMB/XBDM/BOARD display modes)
