      Am I misunderstanding this? PSN access is not possible with these Cobra builds?
    3. Fuzion9
      I'm in the same boat. Not sure what to make of it?
    4. darkjiros
      All DARKNET 4.70 CFW version PSN-connect support
    5. Fuzion9
      Thanks :) So are the psnpatch stealth extensions included or do we just use psnpatch to disable syscalls etc as always?
      Just want to make sure lol
    6. urdandy
      Thank you for hard work. They are awesome!
      I'd like clarification on what you mean by "Re-added spoof code into Stage2 And add other code (stage2.bin : 75.6KB) [This won't enable PSN but..." on the description of Cobra 7.03. Does added spoof code have some problem?

      Very Very good !
      thank you [MENTION=156]darkjiros[/MENTION] :)

      It supports built-in Cobra version spoofer for next FW update, however it won't allow PSN access, and this has been patched a long ago by SONY, you would have to wait for patched VSH.self, index.dat,version.txt and updated stage2.bin with 64bit hash for vsh for Full COBRA functionality.

      So don't worry about this until new SONY's OFW update.

      Thank you for kind reply.

      So what would be the benefit of the Cobra 7.02 over 7.03? Just seems like a step back, not that there is anything wrong with choices just curious as to why you made both. Though I am greatful for the work that much is for sure.

      BTW tested on four models today for friends all using the Cobra 7.03 build all flawless.

      CECHB-01, CECHL-01, CECH-2100 and my CECH-2500

      Somehow the thread was closed. (may of checked the box by mistake) anyhow back open and my apologies

      I think i found an incompatible game with this firmware (maybe with the antiode patch's):

      BLUS31140 Call of Duty BlackOps 2, for some reason the game only shows the first loading icon and BAM!! Black Screen. I used to play this game on COBRA 4.46 without problem.

      Ps3 CECH2511 Darknet 4.70 Cobra 7.03. Game: BLUS31140 iso parts (.iso.0, .iso.1, . . .)

      I don't know if only this version of the game is problematic maybe somebody with this game and diferent version can confirm.

      I try with my original copy of this game and works like a charm.
    14. kozarovv
      Delete game data (not save) and install again. Should help.
    15. afreeman
      can it work with CECH-2006B ?
    16. kozarovv
      Yes, if you have 3,55 ofw or any cfw instaled now.
    17. jowiflow
      ok im new on this and this is my first time posting.

      When i try to update my ps3 with the usb i get an error 8002F957

      My Ps3 4.70 version and console CECH2501B

      What shuld i do to solve this?
    18. Tranced
      If your are running official firmware 4.70 then you will need to downgrade your console to install custom firmware. You cannot install CFW over official firmware.
    19. jowiflow
      Thanks Tranced for fast response.

      Where i can find the downgrade version 3.55?
