    Alexander released his 4.81 CFW FERROX Standard Edition (v1.1). Standard CFW mean there is no cobra payload integrated into CFW, but MAMBA can be used instead if needed. Changes are done only on visual side, so if you are on v1.00 and you are happy, there is no need for update. New features comparing to version 1.00 is Package Manager instead of Install Package Files, and integrated Graphic Mod Installer.

      I thought that the No-BD patched firmwares did not work with Cobra or at least there was issues of some sort correct?

      We tried it on some consoles with broken logic and cobra functions seem to leave without problems. ISO PSX / ps3 / ps2 and psp

      Are you sure @Alexander?
      Just a noBD patch, you tested this on fat or slim up to 210x without logic board & Cobra worked?
      Many tried to get Cobra to work on ps3 without logic board & failed, this topic has been discussed so many times that this surprises me.
      As you can see, I am not alone in being surprised either [emoji6]

      We tested on the console:
      CECH 2004A and CECH G04 without logic and cobra functions worked without any problems. Obviously they are not able to estimate a success rate of 100%.
      Any other feedback on other consoles, it would be appreciated.
