Today we are very proud to present Gateway firmware OMEGA 2.3b BETA to our beta testers!
For this update we focused on bringing support back for recent games and applications that use the new encryption method that was introduced in System Firmware 7.x and higher.
It took us a while before it was ready, but here we are today. We always deliver as promised!
But we also want to make a few observations:
* We have noticed that some recent games have started to use features only present on System Firmware 7.x or higher.
Firmware spoofing no longer works for these games, and emunand is currently required for these games to run.
* Classic mode will only boot emunand 8.x or higher if you have a genuine Gateway card inserted. You can still continue without, but
support for emunand 8.x or higher will not work.
Our next focus will be revising the savegames subsystem. We think a lot of our savegame editing and retail gamecard users will be pleased with what we have planned!
Following various remarks on the forum and elsewhere, I decided to make a small program for all the beginners who want to jailbreak their console. PS3 Console Compatibility v2.00 is a small software that allows you, PS3 owners, to know whether their model is compatible with the PS3 jailbreak.
To find out, simply enter the model of the console in question, the software will take care of all the necessary information out to the console.
As a forum member, you can contact me and leave me your feedbacks / advises /bugs report / errors directly via PM, clicking here .
- Added GUI interface, entirely rebuilt software.
Here is two screenshots to show you the user friendly software :

Thank to copy the same link if you decide to share my software.
For about 48 hours, a rumor runs about the jailbreak of the PS4 by Hishamage. You have to know that we have deliberately not relayed this information because we believe it is wrong ! Even if the author is a little bit known for its PS3 CFW, this time, the info is not verifiable.
On his facebook, he announced having jailbroken the console but it do not want to reveal the flaw. He is afraid of Sony he says. Yet he is not afraid to publish his Sony PS3 CFW ? In addition, the video is running on Youtube cropped and very "fuzzy", not really serious ! I let you see the screens that are running on the web :
As you can see, it's pretty dirty ! Now give him the benefit of the doubt in case it unveil something to silence the rumors ... Meanwhile, the wait & see still required, we never know ...
Message from Yoshee : Following a failed validation, I edited the news completely to give you a perspective on the current situation ! Indeed, the author of the news wanted to share the jailbreak of the PS4. I do not believe the rumors, I edited and I created my news on his...
The team Cobra ODE has released its long-awaited final version of the 2.2 firmware. This is valid for all versions of the Cobra ODE including 5.3A and 5.1B...
The program includes new features and enhancements :
The team Cobra also announced that they completely bypassed the OFW 4.60 on the "old versions" of PS3 (PATA, SATA, FAT, 2k, 2k5 and 3k), but this requires adding an additional module : the cobra DMC. Firmware 2.3 will be available simultaneously with the DMC module that will be unveiled next week.
We are happy to release the 2.2 update for all Cobra versions including the 5.1B and 5.3A PCB revisions V5.x boards, we have increased USB read speeds by 40%* and further improved the success rate of swapping discs for the bypass.
Furthermore, we have added support for 4.60 ofw bypass and new bypass tools (applicable to all Cobra ODE versions v3.x, 4.x and 5.x)
We have also added a another nice features, auto region patching for psx games.
Various fixes for stability and configuration have been added, please refer to the changelog in the mcu update folder.
V5.30A users please note that a bug has been fixed in the 2.1 firmware which caused ISO's not to load if the drive door was not toggled open and then closed. Please ensure you update to the 2.2 Cobra ODE fw asap.
We have now successfully bypassed 4.60 ofw on older PS3 consoles (PATA, SATA FAT, 2k, 2k5 and 3k models). An additional hardware module (Cobra DMC) is required and will be sold bundled with 5.10B or 5.3A versions of the Cobra ODE.
The Cobra DMC hardware module also supports in tradition with Cobra philosophy all previous versions of the Cobra ODE (V3.x and 4.x) hardware and may be purchased from your local reseller soon.
Resellers may contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to order the additional Cobra DMC hardware modules.
The cobra 2.3 firmware will be released simultaneously with release of the DMC hardware module.
Photo's of the Cobra DMC will follow next week.
NOTE: Cobra ODE v3.x and 4.x users already on 2.1 firmware can ignore the FPGA update files.

I've tested it out on every console from 2006 till late 2010 and will install over any CFW I don't care what devs and people or Rogero think its time to release it, it been out for 29 days now. I know I will get stick for this guys but who gives a fvuk as my mate Greg Rasputin said go for it.

Just so you know it does work well with IrisMAN but sound and some games when you upload or transfer your PS3 to another TV the settings will change, you have to reset the HD settings back.
Pauline I had faith in you... but leaker is a leaker. This is why devs leave, you won't see Rogero make another one...!!
Just a note: As it a test PUP and that Rogero, or Tortuga-Cove will not be responsible for bricks or issues!! Just a warning!! Still a lot of bugs in this firmware...!!
It still has other issues not just MultiMAN works on other CFW, it's the payload it's still in testing... purpose its not fully finished or perfect still has issues like PS1 AND PS2. I won't go into much detail anyway it's leaked now good luck to anyone installs it...

It works in IrisMAN and GameSonic no problem, but MultiMAN you need to use BD mirror because deank hasn't updated to 4.60 Rogero yet.
Of course, no link to this CFW will be accepted on LS.
We finally did it! We are the first and only team to add support for the latest games and applications that make use of the new 7.x and 8.x encryption.
We are currently in the process of wrapping it up in a nice Launcher file and we will be releasing it in the coming weeks.
As always, here is a little teaser video to show the new feature in action…
WAY-launchers v1.01 - GUI pour NORway, NANDway & SPIway scripts.
WARNING : the use of this program is at your own risk !
The author can not be held responsible for the consequences of its use.
GUI for running the scripts NORway, NANDway and SPIway for flash hardware PS3 and PS4 with Teensy++ 2.0.
- Auto-détection of COM port of the Teensy
- Teensy programmation (loading of .hex files clicking on the pict of the Teensy)
- Binary comparison of the dumps (if multi-dumps) .
- Windows XP Professional SP3 + ".NET Framework 3.5 SP1" (http://www.microsoft...ails.aspx?id=22)
- Windows Vista SP2 + ".NET Framework 3.5 SP1" (http://www.microsoft...ails.aspx?id=22)
- Windows 7 SP1 (pas besoin d'installer framework 3.5, il est déjà intégré)
- Windows 8 or 8.1 avec ".NET Framework 3.5" activé (http://msdn.microsof...(v=vs.110).aspx)
- Install python, pyserial, Teensy drivers, scripts... based on instructions by Judges's (https://github.com/hjudges/NORway)
- Paste the "WAY-launchers.exe" file in the same folder as NORway.py / NANDway.py / SPIway.py.
Bug fixes in the Multi-dumps and the binary comparison (thanks to Joris 73)
Suppression of the integrated console due to redirection troubles of the output flux of the python scripts.
Now the scripts run in a conventional Command Prompt window.
"Save screen" buttons and "Kill process" have been deleted.
You can execute a copy / paste of the console content and stop while processing with the Ctrl+C.
Added programmation of the Teensy from the GUI: loading .hex files clicking on the Teensy's picture.
Modification of the dumps files extension: it was "*.x.bin", now, it is *.bin" if only one dump and "*_x.bin if multi-dumps.
v1.00: First release
1. no copyrighted material may be used
2. fyi top screen resolution is 400x240
3. we haven't come up with a final name for the menu yet, so feel free to be creative. "3DS homebrew menu"/"3DS homebrew channel" is probably what we'll end up going with unless we get better suggestions
4. you have about a week to come up with something
5. you're doing this work for free and are releasing your work to the public. you'll be properly credited and all but that's pretty much as good as it'll get in terms of "remuneration"
6. i'd rather everyone post their work here, but if you want to keep it secret for the time being feel free to instead send it to this email address : email@example.com (or via PM)
7. noone's name/nick/whatever should be part of the logo screen. that includes my own name, your name or anyone else's. again you'll be properly credited (as will anyone who's contributed to the effort); just not on the logo screen.
