    The PlayStation 3 (PS3) CFW development and really just development in general has been stuck in high gear after an initial slow start with the release of 4.84 OFW but developer's now seems to be rolling along at a rapid pace with new advancements around every corner and that has not stopped as it seems everyone is getting a little love on the PS3 .This time around those that have DEX FW needs on your debug units, CFW developer @Joonie has you covered with a new flavor of PASTA (DEX) COBRA CFW that now includes the once again updated COBRA payload to the NEW version 8.1, all details surrounding the changes and this latest DEX Cobra CFW can be found in the release notes provided by @Joonie.

    Also see the other PASTA flavors here (such as a standard version)


    • COBRA 8.1 Edition
      MD5 : 8e0d3abd82d5ba44ceb6e56e9ddc1336 Release date : 03/28/2019!qYIAxASJ!h8fIFiYMtw3_zERctroftRF2Has0d_TCqdhcOId7-Pw

      Patch notes:
      • Font fix (some old games that use system font now display all letters correctly, Polish letter fix is removed due to this change )
      • PS3Xploit support (The old webkit is brought back to allow PS3Xploit support, HAN can be used)

      Cobra 8.1 (Enabled by Default)
      1. Stage0 now supports kernel & VSH plugin on both Cobra and non-Cobra mode.
      Cobra mode
      *dev_hdd0/boot_plugins_kernel.txt* required for kernel plugin
      *dev_hdd0/boot_plugins.txt* required for VSH boot plugin​

      non-cobra mode
      *dev_hdd0/boot_plugins_kernel_nocobra_dex.txt* required for kernel plugin
      *dev_hdd0/boot_plugins_nocobra_dex.txt* required for VSH boot plugin​

      (Rebuilding database can remove these two flag files to disable plugins.)

      2. loadoptical flag is created when stage2 is not running even after HDD format
      *non cobra mode only, this is only beneficial for BC/Semi BC users who do not use Cobra*)

      Thanks to @habib

      On the XMB my Install Package Files folder doesn't work, when I go into it it just shows nothing, I have to use IRISMAN to install packages. Is there any way to not display the Connected from/Hostname info on the bottom right? Also, when I tried to install this version, Pasta Cobra V2, from Rebug REX it wouldn't appear, I first had to install the standard Pasta then this, I dont know if that was intentional or not. I came from Rebug REX 4.84.1. I like this CFW.

      @Joonie where do pkg files go in internal hard drive so they appear on xmb install package files? tried packages and PKG folders in hdd0 and neither worked
    3. Coro
      PACKAGES (in uppercase)
    4. psydefx
      didnt work

      Check how it's written in /dev_flash/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/category_game.xml it should say something like:

      /dev_hdd0/packages (all in lowercase)

      ok so i added line to category_game.xml and even tried one from a habib cfw and still pkg files dont seem to be read from hdd0/packages. pkg files from usb appear fine though

      Try /dev_hdd0/pkg or pkgs. If all else fails I I think that's where it reads on my 4842 rebug dex converted.

      have you tried reinstalling the cfw pup?
    10. psydefx
      dont think it would help really

      iirc, dex has package installer in category_game_tool2.xml, not category_game.xml. could be wrong as it's been years, but that's what I'm thinking.

      no internal path, only the root of dev_usb00x/ or app_home/ via net (ProDG/TM)

      sorry i thought you were saying pkg manager disapeared. i understand now.
    14. psydefx
      ok. can it be added though?
    15. pinky
      I noticed that as well. I took the liberty of downloading the pup to check if I remembered correctly. yes, package installer is in category_game_tool2.xml.

      you may have to add an hdd segment. I don't know what will happen if you just amend that normal packages segment. it might work. rex is separated into three segments for each of the install locations. the hdd segment is a valid one to use.
    18. psydefx
      adding after usb7 should work:
      <Query class="type:x-xmb/xmlpackagefolder" key="host_provider_hdd0" src="host://localhost/q?path=/dev_hdd0/packages&suffix=.pkg&subclass=x-host/package"/>
    19. pinky
      did it work?
    20. psydefx
      tested and working :)
