    As mentioned several days ago in my "The PlayStation 3.5" write up, I wrote a bit about why NoBD Custom Firmware is a great (only) solution for the consumer of a PlayStation 3 Console that has a malfunction (broken) BD Drive and/or BD Logic Board. You would think that with those broken items you could still execute your digital content, as its just an optical feature that is broken. Well, this simply is not the case, basically you are left with the XMB only Console, so in other words a fancy screensaver, Netflix is not going to launch or any other digital service. Well, no worries you have many PSN Games you bought and installed on HDD. Well, to bad those won't launch either with these drive related issues. There must be a solution right?

    NOBD CFW is the only solution to bypass these BD checks that is preventing you from using the hardware that is still working and intact. These firmware have all the functionality of the non-NOBD versions, but without the use of a disc drive on the console.

    The latest NOBD CFW comes to us from CFW developer Alexander as he releases a COBRA (v7.3) based NOBD firmware, view details of this latest 4.80 release from the Custom Firmware developer:




    • Features & Patches within FERROX (COBRA v7.3) NoBD Edition;

      As you know, the CFW COBRA are the most desired by all. This is because many have additional functions compared to a standard CFW.

      Let's see;
      1. Great ease of use, related to many factors, also to the fact that it does not need the MAMBA, Application creates inconvenience for the connection to the PSN.
      2. Loading Plugin to Boot automatically, through boot_plugins.txt File to 'internal dev_hdd0.
      3. Support for ISO PS3
      4. Support for ISO PS2

      • Take a USB FAT32 formatted, and create a new folder called PS3, inside this create another 'other still called UPDATE, and inside latter' inseriteci the PS3UPDAT.PUP File, which would be the custom firmware.
      • Insert the USB in the far right of the PS3 port.
      • Be sure to: Remove any disc from the player Ps3, Remove any games loaded with any Manager, Disable Internet Connection.
      • Ok. You can choose to install the CFW from the XMB or from Recovery.

      Wasn't cobra not working with nobd patches? @Joonie, please provide some insight on this one!
    5. Joonie
      Games don't work on external devices if I remembered correctly.

      I do not recommend cobra payload running on the system without bd module.

      But for those systems that have the unmarried drive, noBD will work just fine with Cobra

      it;s not working file is correpted
    7. baileyscream
      hang on
      nobd is cfw with the bluray drive firmware removed. thats been the term since this started
      mlt penned the term BdEMU for this type of drive bypass so psn / homebrew etc would still work
      so this cfw is NOT NoBD its BdEMU
      its going to get confusing if the same term is used for both instances
