Any benefit still for using Cobra?
Any benefit still for using Cobra? –
Hey all! Happy Cobra USB user here. I have noticed that now, PS2 ISO backup and playback is possible within MultiMan without using the Cobra. That begs the question now: is there any benefit to using the Cobra now?
The only thing I can think of is PSP emulation. Is that correct? Or is there something else I may be missing?
Psp can be ran now without Cobra as well. Compatibility is slightly higher using Cobra but not enough to warrant use of their crappy CFW IMO 4.30 their 3.55 is solid. Mine is used to go into service mode only now. Even then I do not even have it as I loaned it out to my buddy that refuses to leave 3.55.

Back online thanks to Primee for the legit PSID!!
4GB+ backups from external and playing backups over your local network.
By the way, 'begging the question' is a logical fallacy where the basis of an argument is presented within a question. Though most people use it the way you did. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Begging_the_question . Sorry, just a pet peev of mine.
Thanks so much guys. So it seems like there's literally no reason to use the Cobra. The PS2 compatibility is identical between the Cobra and not using the Cobra? I have a launch 60 GB PS3 with full BC.
If that's the case, what's the best way to go about going from Cobra to whatever the best CFW is right now?
No, I listed two featues that can't be found elsewhere.

either way it use the emulator, which uses the hardware in you're machine (depending on the hardware) I have the same model and I actually find that the PS2 ISOs look and play better converted to PS2 Classics

I have a launch 60gb Fat PS3. I was messing with Open PS2 Loader for a while but videos were just to slow. I picked up a Cobra yesterday just to be able to play PS2 ISO's without the "classics conversion" and then having to use a "place holder". Call me lazy... it was just too much work for me. Now I drop the iso in the PS2ISO folder and that's it. Worth It??? Hell Yeah!!! The Cobra only cost me $20 since the guy I bought it from just didn't have use for it...but he also didn't have a BC PS3.
I was originally holding off buying one because there was news the Cobra was finally hacked.... What happened with that??? I was sure that some Dev would have used the payload in a new firmware and we'd all be laughing.
Until then I guess i'm now a Cobra user.
I don't think it's lazy to not want to convert all your ISOs to the classic format. I have nearly a terabyte of PS2 ISOs and I'm not about to start converting them all over.
It's funny, it seems like every 4-5 months somebody comes out saying that they hacked the Cobra dongle and nothing ever comes from it. I'd love to ditch the thing and have it's functionality on Rebug. Ideally though, I'd like to see the PS2 classic method work with unencrypted ISOs. That way we get the graphical enchancements bitsbubba mentioned without the conversion hassle.
Now I guess a better question would be is there anything I am missing from being on Cobra 4.3 that users of Rogero are currently enjoying?
