    It's pretty much inspired by @Rancid-o 's PS3iTA except this does not come with "CFW Setup" homebrew neither "Package Manager". I know the demographic is very little for this type of CFW but I could image this this would be still useful for those who do not want COBRA neither REBUG.

    The features are pretty basic.For PSN, you will either have to use CCAPI or webMAN to spoof IDPS if your unit is converted retail

      nice work~

      PS2ISO get black screen by mamba,
      replace rebug's ps2_netemu.self can work
      esc0rtd3w and n00b like this.
    4. Joonie
      I didn't touch ps2_netemu at all. Mamba requires patched ps2_netemu.self to run ps2 iso.

      Managunz can patch this on the fly.

      This is exactly what I've been looking for in a CFW. My only request is, can you please remove the Game Quit, & Fake Save Data Owner notifications. Thank you for all your hard work :)
    6. dazzaXx
      How identical is this to actual DEX firmware? Besides the changes specified in the patch notes.
    7. Joonie
      The PUP is built out of DEX OFW and everything that's patched is noted in the patch notes.

      Grab game_ext_plugin from REBUG 4.84.1 REX or D-REX and your annoying messages will be gone.
    8. dazzaXx
      Coolio, btw nice work, definitely gonna try this out.

      Mama mia, now this its definitely a firmware worth checking, and DEX peperoni included :)

      Nice work @Joonie

      thanks @Joonie,
      The name "PASTA" is Original for tribute Italy Custom firmware.
      As an Italian, I would have preferred Colosseum.

    11. Joonie
      The original idea was to imply "Copy&Paste" I didn't even think of Italian reference haha.

      @Joonie I’m really loving this CFW. I was just wondering if you could release a COBRA version, or tell me which files I need to take from REBUG in order to add COBRA myself (if that’s even a possibility).
    13. sandungas
      Is pesto d-pasta, with very few ingredients in the recipe :D
      But thats pesto + meatballs

      I'm going to quote/change a few lines from the original author's post.

      To mix COBRA 8.01 with a 4.84 DEX CFW, replace/add the 7 following files:

      • CORE_OS_PACKAGE: lv2_kernel.self (replace with the one from REBUG 4.84.1 D-REX)
      • /dev_flash/ps2emu/ps2_emu.self (replace)
      • /dev_flash/ps2emu/ps2_gxemu.self (replace)
      • /dev_flash/ps2emu/ps2_netemu.self (replace)
      • /dev_flash/rebug/cobra/stage2.dex (add)
      • /dev_flash/ps2emu/ps2hwemu_stage2.bin (add)
      • /dev_flash/ps2emu/ps2gxemu_stage2.bin (add)
      But I do not recommend this if you don't have a flasher yourself since a simple mistake can lead bricking your system.

      I actually thought about a COBRA version of this FW. So I'd say just wait for a few days.

      Thank you for your reply, especially about the brick warning. I’ll just wait until you release a COBRA version :)

      Just a quick question, i've attempted to install webMAN MOD as it states its supported in the patch notes, but inside the webMAN category is just blank.
    17. Joonie
      webMAN doesn't work out of the box without COBRA or MAMBA that supports plugin support. you need a working prx loader that can load webMAN.

      @Joonie can post cobra 8.01 files on github ??
    19. Joonie
      The source's already available. if you want the binaries, you can grab them from REBUG 4.84.1 REX or D-REX.
