Well i took some time browsing thought different websites and i found 2 that already have the product to *pre-order*. Problem is that most of them they are pretty unclear when Cobra ODE will be ready, also that there’s no price tag. What’s even funnier that some sites like this one, which i found very reliable made this following statement = Set your own price! (If i have to set price = 24 dollars)
To show how retailers seems that don’t have a clue or some direct feedback with Cobra’s HQ, check this screenshot:
ETA february 2013 and date subject to change make all of this even more confusing.
I searched also about 3k3y but i found same *dates* problems.
What you think?, device is ready but some feedback problems between Cobra with distributors or they are just waiting until 3k3y make their first step?.
Since confusion is getting worse i will quote what COBRA/3K3Y/E3 officially stated about their devices working on 3K and 4k models:
1) Cobra stated in their own site (ODE) that when they release the product = Support for 3/4K
Support for the newer consoles such as 25xx, 3xxx and 4xxx to run ISO’s will be included at release.
2) 3K3Y stated this on their official website:
** Currently firmware 3.55 is required for exctracting the drive key. Once the key has been extracted the PS3 can be updated to any official or custom firmware. We are working on hardware methods for extracting keys from PS3′s already on 4.x firmware.
3) E3 = E3 station:
This is an independent small size chip with cheaper cost. It does not need additional hardware like the E3 Station . We have succeeded in glitching the PS3 3K and 4K a few months ago,all we need is some time to improve boot rate.
