Some notes on IRISMAN.pkg (v3.25+) from aldostools and the updated PRX Mamba Loader.pkg:
This is an "unofficial" version of Iris Manager 2.93 by Estwald/D-Skywalk. This version includes all the new Cobra/Mamba payload and ISO features added by Estwald.
The changes that I made are mainly related to the user interface (buttons layout are more XMB-like, quick access to File Manager, progress bar when game list is scanned or file permissions are applied, colors, 16 gui modes, etc.).
It also includes the Payloads from Rancid-O's PS3ITA Manager, Joonie and Habib. The most notable feature is that unlike the official version, it scans GAMES/GAMEZ on the external drives.
Now PS3 ISOs are playable on all these CFW without need of Cobra support.
IMPORTANT: If you use webMAN on Cobra CFW, unmount any mounted game before launch IRISMAN.

Added mamba support for 3.55 DEX and 4.31 CEX (Ported by Joonie)
Supported CFW using mamba are: CEX: 3.55/4.21/4.30/4.31/4.40/4.41/4.46/4.50/4.53/4.55/4.60 and DEX: 3.55/4.21/4.41/4.46/4.50/4.53/4.55
IRISMAN can be used *with limited functions* even if the CFW syscalls are disabled (e.g. by PSN Patch or webMAN-MOD). (Games cannot be mounted and some other features may not work properly)
Added option to mount PSX ISOs with SELECT+X if the CFW supports Cobra or Mamba. (This option uses Cobra method, instead of the direct launch using the PS1 emu)
What's New in 3.19:
Added mamba support to 4.21DEX. Ported by Joonie
Removed non-working mamba payloads (3.41/3.55DEX) from EBOOT
What's New in 3.18:
Added mamba support for 4.53 DEX (Thanks to Joonie)
Updated the translation for Chinese Simplified (thanks to 小悠)
Fixed an awful bug where the PSX ISO was replaced with the config file when the settings were saved

Discless Addons now includes a fixed explore_plugin_460.sprx by Orion90

Small update to version 3.15 - Popcorn Edition
The "Scanning games" message is now displayed everytime the game list is refreshed.
Fixed a couple of minor regressions.
The menus options are now more transparent.
Changed the label "Mount BDVD" to "BD Mirror" (to standardize the terms)
Updated SHOWTIME.SELF from 4.5.328 to 4.7.95 (mod by deank)
What's New in 3.15:
Faster list of games and movies stored on ntfs devices (almost instant vs. +10 seconds in earlier versions)
Better support for direct play of movies stored on ntfs/ext (now all audio/video can be played directly, instead of only *mount* MKV or ISO as dev_bdvd)
New filter by name (e.g list only all games or movies that start with 'M')
Create ISO from File Manager
Faster creation of ISOs (removed some unnecessary code)
Added new ftp SITE COPY/PASTE to the FTP Server protocol
Improved Hex Editor (e.g. select bytes to copy with [ ])
And other things that I may have forgotten
BONUS TIP: While testing the movies on NTFS I noticed that some movies played fine while for others Showtime returned an error about invalid content. It was a weird error due, while a movie stored in a folder played fine from IRISMAN, another copy *of the same movie* returned the error. So definitively it was not an encoding bug.
The solution that I found is: make a COPY the "corrupted" movie to another folder with the File Manager and the new copy will start playing fine Then you can delete the one with problems. I hope this tip help some users that prefer watch movies
What's New in 3.14:
Fix in File Manager for the "0.00 MB free" space left reported after copy.

Fixed issue displaying the free space on multiple devices in the File Manager
Added option to jump to root pressing SELECT+/\ if the cursor is over
What's New in 3.12:
Added display of free disk space for all devices on File Manager.
Fixed issue creating LV1 / LV2 in File Manager: Dumps will be created on the selected device.
Fixed issue that limited some functions on File Manager by Parental Control.
Added French & Spanish translation to some labels on Global menu. (Thanks to littlebalup)

Added fix ATTRIBUTE for games with PS3_EXTRA.
Fixed bug in prxloader.self
What's New in 3.10:
Fixed a regression from 3.09 in the BD Emu functions (aka BD Mirror).

Added the patches for errors 8001003C, 8001003D, 8001003E from webMAN (by DeanK).
Fixed an issue listing NTFS games only and listing NTFS devices on FTP.
In related PlayStation 3 homebrew news aldostools also released PS3 Get CFW Symbols 1.4 with the changes detailed below.
About: This new tool is for DEVELOPERS only!! It helps to find the memory offsets of the CFW functions (aka symbols). Although the tool cannot find all the symbols, it's able to find up to 80% of them, leaving more time to the developer to focus on other more productive tasks.
This tool helped me and Joonie to port the mamba payload to 3.55, 4.21, 4.30, 4.31, 4.40, 4.41, 4.50. This means that now you can play ISOs on these versions of CFW using IRISMAN and even on other Iris forks.
New is v1.5.3:
Fixed a bug parsing "patch_func2_offset".
New is v1.5.2:
Added Ctrl+G to go to an specific address in Interactive mode.
New is v1.5:
Fixed a stupid bug finding the syscall_table_offset for DEX. Added shortcut to the calculator, and new commands to find syscalls.
Now can find the RTOC offsets thanks to a new method provided to me by Joonie. THANKS to him!!!
Added a new interactive mode to search an entered symbol and display the found symbol and values in hex viewer format.
Finally, PlayStation 3 developer aldostools made available some updates to WebMAN below, as follows:
The webMAN in Both packages include the Habib’s fixes that solve the errors 80010017 and 8001002b when running ISO with updates with disc inside.
They can be loaded on 4.60 using PRX Loader 1.05 (unofficial) or the upcoming 4.60 Habib Cobra. They work also on the existing Cobra and non-Cobra CFW previously supported.
Credits to DeanK who helped me to figure some syscall addresses (he's also the original creator of this masterpiece). Matsumot0 who helped me to fix some bugs that I had in his awesome mod. Joonie, EvilNat & Habib for the symbols for 4.60. Also Orion90 & checcolin for the tests and reports.
The WebMAN 1.29.5U4 now fixes the SELECT+R3 not working and I also changed the combo to disable CTRLFAN from R2+L3+Triangle to R2+L3+SELECT (to prevent a conflict with PSNPatch that also uses R2+L3+Triangle for Safe mode).
If you have webMAN already running:
1. Download this file: deanbg.com/category_game.zip
2. Extract the category_game.xml included in the zip to a folder on the PC
3. Go to the setup page of webMAN on the browser e.g.: http://your_ps3_ip_address/setup.ps3
4. Put a check mark on: Enable /dev_blind (writable /dev_flash) on startup and save the options.
5. Restart the PS3 (Only needed if the option was unchecked!!)
6. Open an FTP Client and access your ps3 at ftp://your_ps3_ip_address:21/
7. Browse to /dev_blind/vsh/resource/explore/xmb
8. Upload and replace the category_game.xml with the one extracted on step 2.
9. Reboot. Enjoy!
webMAN MOD 1.30.22 Multi 19 (2014-8-27):
Added support for CFW 4.65 CEX
From aldostools: This is an English-Only version of the Cobra build of webMAN-MOD 1.30.22. So it doesn't have the option to load the language files in the setup (and the external language files are not needed by this version).
As result, the uncompressed ELF is almost 20KB smaller than the multi-language version. Thus, theoretically it should be a bit more memory efficient for the users that don't need the multi-language feature.
webMAN-Mod v1.30.23 by M@tsumot0 / aldostools
webMAN MOD is a M@tsumot0's modified version of webMAN 1.30 plugin developed by deank.
Changelog for webMAN MOD 1.30.23 Multi 19 (2014-9-12):
Fixed issues with PRX+Mamba Loader on 4.65 and added support for 4.65 Cobra
Changed LV2 memory protection offset for 4.55 (It was using offset for 4.53).
This fork provides additional features like user-friendly smart installer/updater for Cobra and NonCobra, IDPS/PSID spoof, support for 19 languages using external files, disable cfw syscalls, remote peek/poke/find in LV1/LV2, remote backup to HDD and from HDD to USB, among other improvements.
