    About MAMBA (last update):


    -PS3netsrv is supported
    -DVD and BD ISO are supported
    -DVD and BD movie region free functionality
    -Split ISO Support on fat32 drives

    To be more clear it have all the features of COBRA but without PS2 and PSP support (If i am not wrong MAMBA can also mount PS2 games but cant launch them like in COBRA)

    Note: mmCM will now work with MAMBA too

    I had the idea of this thread the other day right about when PSNpatch added auto booting plugins. So i kind of thought a list to show the differences of the two was in order and you did such a great job of duplicating those features in your project. It made me change aot of things lol :) .. Great to see the progress :)

    Changes made on the list also thanks

    Made some new changes above and threw REBUG REX in the mix.

    Iris&Mamba dev avoid the support of PSXISO because Iris has its own method/payload to load it, he thinks is the best. Also avoid the support of PSP and PS2 ISOs because he was not interested at the moment. If you want to add PSXISO support to Mamba you can choose between Iris or Cobra payload.

    Cobra and Mamba looking very similar with the latest developments that has brought PSP Support to MAMBA
    PS3ITA Releases MAMBA / PRX Autoloader Version 3.1.0 (Unofficial MAMBA Release) - PSX Place
    and PS2 Support last month:
    Mamba / PRX Autoloader v3.0.0 (unofficial) - PS2 ISO SUpport Added by Team Ps3ITA - PSX Place

    -----------

    CyberModding - Unofficial MAMBA PRX Loader v3.1.0 - Supporto ISO PSP!!
    [Scena PS3] Rilasciato Unofficial Mamba/PRX Loader (autoloader) v3.1.0BiteYourConsole

    What are the odds of all of us having the same table format? the same order of content? even in some cases same icons used? Its amazes me how we all can think the same? :)

    PS3MAPI is an important addition to Cobra/Mamba that is missing in this list.

    Also this list implies that Cobra/Mamba are identical... but some differences are: Mamba can be installed at any moment after boot, Cobra can't. Unlike Cobra, Mamba is available for almost all CFW (CEX/DEX).

    "Split ISO Support on fat32 drives" is also supported on internal HDD, NTFS (using Iris Manager forks or prepNTFS) and on /net host using the latest ps3netsvr (from december 2015).

    "netISO" is not limited to ISO, ps3netsvr can create virtual ISOs from mounted folders (useful for remote PS3 games in JB format).

    In addition to "PS3/BD/DVD/PSX ISO/CUE+BIN from network", video/audio/pictures/packages and other files (including PUP) can be streamed as well.

    If I understand the table correctly, it is not comparing "MAMBA vs COBRA vs REBUG REX" as the title says. It is comparing "Standard CFW w/Mamba 3,1 vs Cobra 7.x CFW vs Rebug REX".

    Thanks for the added information.

    When I started this it was to show just the differences between the 3 types. As this was right before _NzV_ advancements. So the differences were huge back then and these were the major differences and not much was needed to outline. but yea as things have progressed the added differences would be wise to add add as suggested.

    You mean with a backwards compatible ps3?
    Or using Cobra/Mamba on non BC consoles..?

    The only CFW that allows you to change region semi permanently is Rebug.

    Yes, with a Backwards compatible ps3.
    CobraUSB 3.55 was allow to run ps2 dvd from alien region on BC console without any region manipulations.
    Does it work on modern CFWs?

    Where does Overflow fit on this chart? I had Ferrox Standard 4.82 but webman wasn't working so I switched to REBUG 4.81.2 and now I'm factory resetting for a fresh start, etc. I kind of want to use REBUG since it seems to be the most feature rich, but it really irks me that there isn't an official 4.82 out yet. I know you can QA and go back, etc. but it just doesn't seem clean doing that.

    Standard cfw need mama to load plugins, thats why webmanmod doesnt work if u dont install mamba on it, on cobra cfw you dont need it, youu can start using plugins right from the start. overflow as standard and cobra, same as ferrox standard would need the mamba to load plugins

    rebug rex as alot of options but maybe you dont even use half of them or even not use them at all, also if thats your choise better read trough the guides of toolbox before starting using it

    There is nothing clean or unclean about toggling QA.
    QA is an official feature, not a hacker trick..
    Moreover QA requires to be enabled anyway to get all the features in Rebug working!

    New 4.82 CFW with Cobra will be out very soon. In order to make a new Rebug REX, the team needs access to a DEX PUP file. As long as nobody provides one, no new REX but maybe a LITE version soon...

    Just be patient or learn how to create a cfw yourself.

    Oh I am in no rush, sorry if it seemed I am impatient. When I said it irks me that there isn't a rebug 4.82 yet what I meant is that using the "wrong" fw version number irks me not that there's not one released already.

    It seems like overflow is fairly popular, so my suggestion to add it and maybe 1 other to this chart still stands.

    I am trying it out right now mainly because the dev seems like a nice guy.

    Ferrox or Overflow makes no difference really.. It's only for a few more days until better releases come out...

    IMO, unless you need to use the updated BD certificates for new BD movies, there is no real good reason to move on to 4.82 cfw atm. Better remain on 4.81 (Ferrox, habib or Rebug) & use SEN Enabler to spoof the fw version if ever you need to access PSN. (Remember to remove the spoof before updating to 4.82 when new cfw come out).
