PS3 developer Evilnat made a new update of his CFW 4.89 Evilnat Cobra 8.3 (CEX) with a number of new options like his previous build 4.88.2. Some of the features in the CFW include a built-in File manager in XMB, Option to toggle Cobra debug/normal versions, disable CFW syscalls, block PSN login if CFW syscalls are enabled, offline activation of PSN account, QA Flags, FAN Tools, Savedata conversion and several fixes and improvements.

Planned features for the next release

  • Dump full RAM (256mb)
  • New icons/label to know if Cobra is enabled/disabled and cobra version release/debug is loaded
  • OtherOS
  • xai_plugin with support for 4.84.3 Rebug (Unofficial)

    To avoid issues, make sure you have the latest version of your favorite homebrews like, webMAN MOD, ManaGunZ, multiMAN, Movian, etc…​

    If your console is on OFW 4.80 or higher, and it is a CFW compatible model (all phat, slims 20xx, 21xx or 25xx with min ver 3.56 or lower), follow this Guide by Coro for jailbreaking your PS3 with Bgtoolset directly from your PS3 Internet Browser.

    para usuariois con consolas estropeadas

    The overclock version is way too unstable right now, my temps are fine but allot of features have gone kaboom,
    for example : Cursor not showing in browser, the keyboard to type is completely wiped off planet, and bassically i havent found any other but this has to be fixed for it to be atleast somewhat functionable.

    however beta is fine

    July 8th, 2022 at 7:09 pm

    4.89.2 beta has applied the fix for SD display by sandugas.

    If you use 4.89 (not beta) you should install the fix. You first have to enable /dev_blind to apply it.
