Cobra ODE –
I've been waiting on the ODE, but they seem to keep delaying it so I'm starting to wonder if it's vaporware.
Basically, just from the vast difference between the generations of hardware, I'm finding it difficult to figure out a way that they would actually be able to interface with them in any meaningful way.
Is anyone else getting this vibe? I've been looking at the 3k3y ODE for a long time, and this is the only thing stopping me from getting into that, as being able to use the Cobra ODE on my slim PS3 instead of having to use my PS3 phat would be a boon.
Honestly I'm starting to feel the same way!

Said it will be released at April. Hopefully it isn't a
April fools prank
I'm having it preordered myself but I must admit I don't have a good feeling about it myself.
I also don't buy the pcb quality BS they are giving as reason for the delay.
Since 3k3y did manage to come out an deliver I'm tending to think the issue lies in the only thing their feature set is different, namely support for consoles not currently on 3.55 or cfw.
Either they ran into trouble with that claim and can't deliver on that promise ( which would effectively bury them and their bussiness completely ) or worse even, they are trying to implement some obscurity into their method so the competition can't duplicate it.
I'm leaning towards the latter myself.
They didn't provide any proof of the device
So Idk what to think. If we were to see proof
Of the ode then I would be convinced. I remind you
3key provided proof Prior to the release
But there have been no pictures, videos or anything
Just empty promise with broken deadlines
They updated the site with a picture of the board. but they have yet to finish building the software for the device.

Cobra ODE Hardware - Main Board pictrures
We're 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....
