It has been quite impressive seeing the progression of the COBRA payload over time, COBRA originally debut on the PS3 way back in 2011 as the CobraUSB (by Team Cobra) this refers to version 1.0 - 6.0 of the payload. This is the period that the device was closed sourced and locked down to Cobra's USB dongle. After the device was put aside and shelved by Team Cobra, it laid dormant for sometime, not keeping up with firmware updates and leaving user with many bugs for the early 4.2x CFWs. There was some public pressure for the team to release the source code and with Team Cobra at the time launching a new product in the ODE, the team folded to public pressure and we seen the source code release(s) and the Open Source Cobra (usb-less version) refers to v7.0+ (which currently we stand at version 7.52)
Since that source code release we have seen the likes of @Joonie, @habib, @KW, @deank, @_NzV_ & @aldostools. make various improvements to COBRA and the evolution continues with release and progression of version 7.52 by Joonie that has added various new elements to the payload like the new Homebrew Blocker (by KW & aldostools) that blocks various homebrew when CFW syscalls are disabled from being executed when connecting to PSN, user' have the ability to create custom cfg list to add any additional homebrew then the defaults offer (details listed in the release quote below). Also in v7.52 a fix was provided by Habib that repairs lv1 peek support within multiMAN.
Joonie, has an additional surprise as updating COBRA just got alot easier for REBUG user's as an update has been released for REBUG Toolbox with a new feature: that will allow you to download/update the payload directly from the toolbox, see the easy tutorial (w/ pics) that Joonie has provided. Please take note that this is ONLY for REBUG 4.81.XX CFW user's you should not use this on lower version or other COBRA CFW such as Habib's.
I updated the COBRA revision to 7.52 from 7.51 the source is available in this commit: https://github.com/Joonie86/COBRA-7......
The Following Changes have been added:
By default, COBRA can block following apps from being launched "ONLY AFTER" Syscalls are disabled by stealth plugins and homebrews
- BLES806XX Multiman and assorted tools are in the format BLES806**
- BLJS10018 PSNPatch Stealth (older versions were already detected as non-NP/BC/BL)
- BLES08890 PSNope by user
- BLES13408 FCEU NES Emulator
- BLES01337 Awesome File Manager
- BLND00001 dev_blind
- NPEA90124 SEN EnablerAnd custom config files can be used for white/black listing apps/homebrews/games as you need
Here's the original quote by @kokotonix about this feature:
So after disabling syscalls, launching homebrews will result following
and also, I realized many people having hard time updating their COBRA binaries, I decided to add a new feature to REBUG TOOLBOX
COBRA Payload Updater
Currently the toolbox has a detection for lower revisions of COBRA.
So any version "below 7.52 and 4.81.X" will be supported [REBUG REX / D-REX 4.81.1 and 4.81.2] REBUG 4.80 and below are NOT supported, neither NON-REBUG (Meaning CFWs like HABIB,FERROX and such). AGAIN NOT DECR!!
Here's a little tutorial that can help you understand how it works:
- REBUG 4.81.1 or 4.81.2
- COBRA 7.31~7.51
1. Firstly make sure you're on REBUG 4.81.X [1 or 2] and COBRA must be active prior to the update, otherwise the option will NOT be shown
Here's the quick summary and the download link for the new toolbox 2.02.13
1. COBRA Payload 7.52 including
- @habib's bug fix for lv1 peek support for multiMAN,
- @deank's backup disc support for PS3 games
- KW and @aldostools's homebrew blocker thanks to @kokotonix for informing
2. COBRA Updater for REBUG 4.81.X
REBUG 4.80 and below are NOT supported, neither NON-REBUG (Meaning CFWs like HABIB,FERROX and such) AGAIN NOT DECR!!

TheFlow cracks Vita Firmware 3.67 ("Will Release" but "Not Soon")TheFlow has brought some clarity on the recent updates (commits) made to VitaShell suggesting 3.67 Support, It is indeed true that 3.67 is now exploitable for the PS Vita and sibling devices the PlayStation TV (Vita TV). The dev has now confirmed on his official twitter (tweets below) that user and kernel access on Vita's 3.67 Firmware has been achieved, However, do note before you get too excited, the developer won't release till end of year, in what seems to be a move to wait out any future Vita firmware updates that may be on the horizon,. The dev has also stated (if time allows) the possibility to update HENkaku Enso to 3.65 for existing Vita user's, but in the future we might see all vita devices with a new window for exploiting .Its unclear if the recent Vita Bootloader Hack aided or had anything to with this hack but details are sure to emerge in the coming weeks and months What ya think about this announcement from TheFlow?

Something good is going on in the PS Vita SceneIt appears "Something good is going on in the PS Vita Scene" says psx-place's own kozarovv, As the recent commits by xyz (team molecule member) and then TheFlow (VitaShell Creator) Github pages some rather interesting discoveries were found in those recent commits as also The_Hero (of Games&Consoles) points out about some new commits arising following the news from last week when Yifan lu (a member of Team Molecule) disclosed the new HENkaku Enso Bootloader Hack to the Vita Community. Since, it now appears there are some rather interesting developments coming to fruition in the Vita's ecosystem. Are we are likely in store for something big for the Vita Community, like 3.67 breakthroughs? It sure looks that way, currently, we are only making suggestions and concluding details from the commits across these Open Source Projects from elite vita devs. As these changes are signaling something is on the horizon. @kozarovv laid out some of the important bits of information that can be gather from those recent commits made available -STLcardsWSContinue reading
