Following their Ferrox PS3 Custom Firmware 4.82 v1.01 Cobra 7.55 update, today PlayStation 3 developer @Alexanderss released Ferrox PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) 4.82 NoBD Cobra 7.55 for those with broken, faulty or missing Blu-ray drives. :cool:

To quote from LizZo on, roughly translated: Release - Custom Firmware FERROX 4.82 NoBD COBRA 7.55

Here is also the NoBD version as usual! This version of the FERROX Custom Firmware is designed for anyone who has a failed reader. In fact, the NoBD completely disables the reader, and with this the console returns to work fully. You can start Games and Homebrew without any mistake!

The FERROX NoBD COBRA 7.55 version imitates the normal COBRA version, with just the addition of the NoBD Patches. So I report the news in the new version COBRA 7.55 in case you missed them.

Install twice to ensure that the NoBD Patches are installed correctly!
  • Download the CFW at the top of the page. Rename the .PUP file exactly in: PS3UPDAT.PUP and compare the MD5 with the one you find at the bottom of the page! You can use the md5sums tool that you find online!
  • Take a USB formatted in FAT32, and create a new folder called PS3, inside it create another one called UPDATE, and inside this last insert the PS3UPDAT.PUP File, which would be the Custom Firmware.
  • Insert the USB into the rightmost port on the Ps3.
  • Be sure to: Remove any disc from the Ps3 player, Disassemble any Games loaded with any Manager, Disable Internet Connection.
  • Ok. You can choose to Install the CFW from the XMB or from Recovery.

In tests for the COBRA 7.55 we tested many PS3, PS2, PSP and PSX games, in all formats. Some of the games tried in the spoiler.


Thanks go all to the Developer Alexander for the continuous work on FERROX at every opportunity. Acknowledgments also due to all members of the Cybermodding Staff to conduct tests before release (-:

Remember again that this version is to be used only if you have a broken reader. If you do not have the faulty reader, use the normal COBRA version (-:

There are no differences between the COBRA version and the COBRA NoBD version. There is only the NoBD Patch to differentiate them !!
