    CFW SPY 4.85 COBRA 8.01

    Is rare situation that i'm posting stuff like that, but looking at other releases i think we can safely post it here. CFW was tested on NAND and NOR, so is free of brick bugs. Please test, and point out eventual bugs. Tests on Polish forums proved there are none of them, but more people test, better. Is quite standard cobra CFW, like i said above tested on few NOR, and NAND ps3's. CFW is made by @darekspy using publicly available patches, and knowledge.

    Features:

    • Based on OFW 4.85
    • Embed COBRA 8.01
    • Included payload for COBRA TOGGLE in LV2
    • Package Manager instead IPF
    • Added ReactPSN support
    • Run games signed up to 4.85
    • Can be installed on any CFW
    • Can be installed on 3.55 OFW or on 4.85 OFW using ps3xploit flasher (ONLY CFW COMPATIBLE MODELS)
    • Removed Cinavia for HDD, BDMV, BDVD content
    • QA flag enabled by default if was enabled earlier
    • RSOD bypass
    • Patched LV0 to remove integrity checks for COREOS
    • Patched LV2 to add Peek/Poke
    • Patched LV2 checks in LV1
    • Patched LV1 to add Peek/Poke
    • Removed epilepsy warning
    • Added gameboot, and few other graphical changes
    • Added patch to disable internet firmware update from XMB
    • Support for PS3, PS2, PSX, PSP iso
    • Removed C00 check in VSH
    • Fixed Polish font in PS2 emulator (Asian users can have minor issues with fonts due to that, for them font file change is required)
    • Added PSP DRM removal patch

    I'm not associated with that CFW release, and also please don't suggest yourself that is somehow my recommendation to use it. Specially don't think that i suggest it as psx-place moderator. I just thought that posting it here is good idea, looking at other releases.

    Yeah, but rebug seems to not gonna happen in next few weeks. Also i didn't heard that @habib plan to release cfw anytime soon. Not bad time to give chance new/less known developers. Specially that CFW seems to be free of bugs.

    I have used his CFW before amd they are pretty solid. This isn't his first, second or even third attempt. Even subscribe to his YouTube. It is the best option out there if you want an up to date CFW. As kozzy stated we aren't going to see Rebug or even Starbugged in the coming weeks.

    It's nice but I have prepared mods especially for REBUG or STARBUGED and I don't have time to change it to another soft. So I'll wait, but I can recommend SPY some xmb custom is and to change something without spoiling xml files you have to bury some in files.

    All of my mods from 4.84 work on 4.85 due to the minor changes Sony made. Only edit I needed to do was a few quick XML edits. But 4.84 is fine as we can spoof 4.85 to get back online or even use the Android/PC versions of PS3 Proxy if we need.

    My mods dont work on overflow and ferrox, replacing files in dev_blind in SPY results in missing xmb.

    I can't test for very long due to work but here's what I was able to test so far...

    • Installed through XMB with no issues
    • I like the custom boots. Very nice and not too flashy
    • Installed PS3 PKG backups boot from /dev_hdd0 & PS3 ISOs boot from dev_ntfs/PS3ISO with no issue with webMAN MOD
    • PS2 backup boots from /dev_/hdd0/PS2ISO using webMAN MOD
    • I was able to go back to REBUG 4.82.2 from the XMB update option

    I'll mess around with it more later on after work and I'll try reverting back to Rebug through XMB as well

    Unfortunately I'm new to all this and can't give you any real insight about critical issues. But if it plays muh games, I'm cool with it :D

    It doesn't offer anything extra but that is how it should be so we can mod as we choose. He has been doing this since 4.65 was the first CFW I saw from him. He isn't flashy and died this for himself. If others can enjoy it fine but doesn't need any extra attention which I find to be a quality that isn't seldom seen.

    Agreed. I personally don't need anything extra. Does it play my games, launch homebrew and remain stable? If so I'm good. Anything extra I'll add myself and what I like about that is I get to learn something new while doing it.

    I was able to go back to REBUG 4.82.2 from the XMB update option. I think I'm going to reinstall spy though.

    Now if I could just figure out how to change the background to black without a wallpaper... :onthego:

    Just installed it as it looks to be what I'm looking for in a 4.85 CFW. Thanks for sharing!

    Still going strong.
    I think I'll be using this one for a while. I ended up installing it on my slim as well :D

    I've played multiple PS3 PKG games from hdd0 and ISO from hdd0 & NTFS without an issue. And I was able to mount my PSP ISO backup from hdd0 with ManaGunZ & wMM and boot it with the launcher included in the OP. :pineapple:

    Appears reports are suggesting this has been the most stable CFW currently for 4.85.
