Yes but in retrospect you don't need the hardware. They claim you can use it on newer models...which means they found an exploit on current systems.
So it's either BS and they're trying to get more sells, or they've hidden it for a long time. There was a thread about cfw scans and what they look for. Even with the ODE they still scan folders.
If Treyarch / Activision have permission to scan ps3 directories, Sony can easily do the same and more efficiently thanks to that last maintenance.
Cobra doesn't do anything different that couldn't be done via software alone...yes hardware needs software to work, but in this case you don't actually need the hardware.
