News Update!  Cobra Team are now developing a solution for 3.60 in light of the exploits discovered recently, which will lead to much greater flexibility, menu system running directly on the Vita and a bunch of other exciting console side features.. We would ask anyone currently using BlackFin to remain on 3.57 OFW until we announce completion of development, at which point you can update to 3.60 OFW. Anyone currently on 3.60 OFW should not update to 3.61, since current exploits are already blocked.

News Update! 

We are concurrently introducing a lite version of the BlackFin retail pack which contains only the Cobra BlackFin Card Emulator and the BTLE USB Dongle with a suggested retail price of 69.99 USD, and the standard retail pack including reader will remain available with suggested retail price of 89.99 USD. The new revised lower pricing and lite retail pack bring massive savings to customers and there are many many features in development which will bring great enjoyment to our users.

Cobra Team will now develop support for Android devices which support BlueTooth Low Energy connectivity. Most new mid range Android devices support this functionality, which means soon you will be able to enjoy BlackFin with Vita on the go!
We are also developing further features and improvements for the PC and Android BlackFin applications such as:

*Ability to format Micro SD cards to BlackFin format and transfer Vita ISO's to the Micro SD via the BlackFin application, without the need for the BlackFin reader, simply using any MicroSD card reader for PC.

*Support for Unicode characters; Japanese and Chinese character file names for ISO's

*Improved game dumping stability

*Enhancements to the User Interface system

Stay tuned for further updates, Cobra Team will continue to innovate and support BlackFin with many new enhancements.
The Vita scene has only truly just begun, and with the dawn of homebew loaders on Vita many new possibilities can be explored! We will be at the forefront of scene development and bring great features to our users, as you would expect from Team Cobra.
We have received the list of game names available through the Asian BlackFin servers by anonymous contributors and another 30 titles are expected to follow within the next 2 weeks...
The list of games will grow as Blackfin is adopted by more and more users..

News Update!  Cobra Team have been hard at work again with further improvements to the BlackFin software. We have uploaded a new BlackFin 1.12 application pack which improves stability for using multiple BlackFin readers on a single PC. Especially useful for those who want to set up their own server networks! BlackFin 1.12 is available here:

  • BlackFin software v1.12 (includes Reader firmware update)
  • News


    News Update!  We have uploaded a new BlackFin 1.11 application pack which includes some essential .dll files. If you downloaded the previous version, kindly download the updated pack, available here:

  • BlackFin software v1.11 (includes Reader firmware update)
  • News


    News Update!  We are back with another quick update BlackFin 1.11, which further improves stability of authentication over the network. Please be sure to use the latest BlackFin 1.11 for fastest and most reliable authentication of games. Stay tuned for further updates coming soon...

  • BlackFin setup and user guide v1.1 (applicable to BlackFin 1.10 and 1.11 application)
  • BlackFin software v1.11 (includes Reader firmware update)
  • News


    News Update!  We are pleased to announce that we have been hard at work on the BlackFin 1.1 software application, which further improves stability and robustness of the authentication system across networks. The 1.1 release also includes a BlackFin reader hardware update which ensures stability on pc's when running multiple readers. Furthermore, and most importantly, we have added a preferences dropdown menu which allows you with a couple mouse clicks to define the server location closest to you to ensure lowest latency possible, which is important for stable authentication of games. Americas, Asia and Europe are now covered with our server locations, ensuring global reach for users and fast authentication times. Check out the updated user manual for details which includes screengrabs of the settings configuration menu:

  • BlackFin setup and user guide v1.1 (applicable to BlackFin 1.1 application)
  • BlackFin software v1.1 (includes Reader firmware update)
  • Team Cobra has many, many more features plannned which will continue to bolster the power of the BlackFin product and bring flexibility to users.

    We are seeking resellers for South America, Europe and other regions. Please contact us for further details, we will support our official resellers with preferential terms and other benefits. Contact us at:



    News Update!  A few select resellers have started receiving Cobra BlackFin units! We wish to inform those resellers and all potential customers that we are adding server coverage for Asia and the Americas which should help to ensure that you can authenticate games over the severs in those regions without any possible time out errors which you could experience using current European server. Cobra BlackFin can be used on your own PC (localhost) to play any of your own game cards, over the BlackFin servers for maximum number of titles, or on a friend's private network by setting the IP address in the config to that of your friend's PC IP address. We will be adding an easier config drop down to the BlackFin PC software in the next week or so to allow easily swapping between localhost, Asia, Americas or European server or input IP address of your friends server. Should sites decide to review BlackFin before the additional server coverage is in place, we would emphasize the importance of testing the device over a private network (such as between two pc's on the same IP address or a friend's PC in the same region. Please ensure you open respective ports on the LAN or wifi routers.) in order to properly test the BlackFin hardware. :) Of course we will post an additional news over the next few days when additional server coverage is in place. The process is already underway, so it will be very soon. We have heard that close to 100 different titles have been acquired by contributors for use by all on the the Asian servers and similar will follow on the European and Americas servers shortly after.



    News Update!  We have been hard at work finalizing the BlackFin software the past few months. We are pleased to announce that this is now complete and the BlackFin hardware system is now available to order with immediate shipment available :) We have uploaded the BlackFin-1.0 software package and the BlackFin user manual to the downloads section. Samples are being sent to review sites over the next few days, so you can expect to see reviews appearing on related sites in the coming days. Resellers may contact us to reserve stocks or place an order



    News Update!  There was an error in the mailto script on the contact page. This has now been remedied. Please visit the contact page to contact us via e-mail



    Cobra Black Fin Website Launched!  The flash card revolution for Vita has begun......

    What does Cobra Black Fin do?

    The Black Fin allows Vita and Vita Slim Wifi and 3G users to share their Vita games over the internet.

    The Cobra Black Fin Emulator card stores game ISO's on Micro SD and the Black Fin Card is then inserted into the Vita/Vita Slim console

    When connected to the Black Fin servers authentication of the Vita game is performed by matching the ISO on your Micro SD card to the same original game running on a peers' Black Fin reader connected to his PC and the Black Fin servers or friends'  servers.

    You might ask why it is necessary to authenticate the game you wish to play using an original card connected to a server?

    Vita has a very secure card authentication mechanism, which to date has not been penetrated and is based on secure cryptography. It is unlikely that a direct authentication method which avoids having to use a peer to peer system will appear any time soon. As a result Cobra has designed a unique and cutting edge peer to peer sharing device which allows users to share their favourite games with friends over  an internet network.

    Vast resources have been poured into designing a flash card which is the same size as the original Vita card itself. Yes, the Cobra Black Fin squeezes all of its technology into a card no bigger than a Vita game card with tons of features and packing serious hardware power! When you look at the circuit board design and components used you start to understand the expertise and time required to pull off a design of this magnitude.

    Here's a quick video of the BlackFin in action on the latest Vita firmware 3.51!

    Expect release of the Cobra BlackFin end of December 2015..

    Resellers can reserve their stocks in advance by e-mailing:

    Initial batch is sure to sell out fast, so be sure to reserve your stocks in advance to avoid disappointment.

    Stay tuned for more information and further picture and video presentations.


    What's included in the Cobra Black Fin set? 

    1 unit Cobra Black Fin Emulator card for Vita

    1 Unit Cobra Black Fin Reader for PC

    1 Mini USB to USB A cable for connecting Black Fin Card Reader to PC

    1 BlackFin USB dongle
