pleased to present pictures of the final Cobra ODE hardware -
Main PCB assembly. As you can see there are two switches which
enable configuration of PATA (FAT consoles)/SATA (FAT CECHL
consoles) and 2k,2k5k,3k and 4k series slim and super slim
consoles. Cobra ODE is the first truly universal PS3 ODE
bringing maximum convenience to end users and resellers alike.
As you can see we've designed everything to be connected via FFC cables directly between ODE and console or console, ODE and daughter boards in the case of the 2k5,3k and 4k series consoles. A great deal of effort and time has been put into designing a system with best performance and maximum convenience for installation.
We're working hard on the finalization of the software, stay tuned for further information....
Release date is a
little delayed since we're ironing out the last remaining bugs
with the software and hardware in preparation for release. This
has taken a longer than expected due to the extended range of
consoles we support.
Some pictures and further information about our hardware will follow over the next few days. Stay tuned for further info!
The Cobra Team are famous for their Cobra USB device which brought tons
of unique features to the PS3 scene! Now we're proud to announce
the imminent release of our Cobra ODE device, which again will
be at the forefront of cutting edge innovation for PS3 users.
One hardware revision supports all. Our hardware has been designed to both fit inside and interface with the Super Slim version of the consoles, as well as the SLIM and older FAT systems. If you upgrade at any time from a FAT to a SLIM or a Super SLIM, then there's no need to buy a new device....
Support for the newer consoles such as 25xx, 3xxx and 4xxx to run ISO's will be included at release.
Functionality will be added shortly after release of the device via a firmware update. Ripping speed will be almost as fast as that reached by connecting drive to PC and users will benefit from the convenience of a hassle free game ripping experience! Rip games directly on PS3 to an external USB HDD in ISO format.
Additionally we will provide a PC app at time of release of the product to market which allows conversion of JB game dumps to ISO format, so users can simply download games from the net and convert them with our app. The app will patch additional data required to create necessary ISO format.
Cobra ODE website is launched! Cobra brought ground breaking
