Could be news-worthy for at least some of you. Article Source: PSX-Scene The gist of it? After some poking and prodding, and likely due to the expanded support that their new ODE has compared to the USB dongle, the existing Cobra USB dongle code will be going open source. Source link details what is needed to compile the source, as well as what would be included when it is released. I'm not sure about others, but I for one am very much looking forward to this. While I don't have access to the necessary tools (yet), I know one thing I would hope for is to see this finally R.E.'d so that these functions are available without requiring the dongle, particularly - since I still have my CECHA - being able to play ps1 & ps2 disc backups that the real dongle and its associated CFW allows. THEN I could finally retire my existing mod-chipped PS2.
