96w ago - Following up on Iris Manager 2.65 and PS3ITA Manager v1.30, today PlayStation 3 developer Evilnat has updated the PS3 open-source homebrew application to Iris Manager 2.7 (Unofficial) to support the recently released CFW 4.41 DEX compatible Custom Firmware releases.

Download: EVIPS3-IMANAGER4_00-00PKG0BY0EVILNAT2.pkg / Iris Manager 2.7 by Evilnat (Unofficial) (Mirror) / EVIPS3-IMANAGER4_00-00PKG0BY0EVILNAT2.pkg.938.v2.70.pkg (Mirror #2) / irismanager-4-x-master_LAST.rar (Source Code) / irismanager-4-x-master_LAST.rar (Mirror)

This latest update is intended for PS3 CFW 4.41 DEX Custom Firmware, such as those from Gunner54 and Rancid-o.

To quote, roughly translated:

v2.7 Changes:

  • adding the payload for Custom Firmware 4.41 DEX (Evilnat);
  • adding the payload control fan for Custom Firmware 4.41 DEX

In related PS3 DEX news Hells Guardian shared a method for DEX consoles to Access Services such as Netflix, Hulu and many others without the need to block anything. It is said that this method should only be used for banned bonsoles, as they kick you off their network.. now you have kicked them off your PS3.

Access Services Hulu/Netflix etc without blocking anything!

Read the title folks this is quite handy for the netflix/hulu users out there who have been banned from the PSN. This will cause anything related to the PSN from logging in to creating an account to browsing the store and even the whats new section to simply return a DNS error 80710104. This also Bypasses all game update checks too!!!!

First you must be running a DEX firmware (rebug is my personal choice.) Steps to enable the bypass (this may work on some older CEX firmwares with QA flag but not on 4.30 but should work on all dex firmwares.)

1. go to debug settings and find the setting NP Environment
2. change the NP Environment setting to a blank entry delete whatever is there.
3. reboot your console and enjoy

Thanks for reading and enjoy.

Finally, from atreyu187: Ok this is weird, after doing this and reverting back to CEX since i have dual boot anyhow. Hulu and Crackle still work without PSN. Netflix ask for access to PSN still. And Amazon hasn't needed PSN since the CEX bypass was needed since it was just adjusting a ini file.

Ok I found out why it works. After the activation it allows you to stay signed in, reverting back to my old xregistry files Hulu asked for PSN access. Seems once you get banned like all legit purchases it becomes disabled.

Update: An UPDATED quote from Hells Guardian (updated on July 31st): Access Services Hulu/Netflix etc without blocking anything!

Read the title folks this is quite handy for the netflix/hulu users out there who have been banned from the PSN. This will cause anything related to the PSN from logging in to creating an account to browsing the store and even the whats new section to simply return a DNS error 80710104. This also Bypasses all game update checks too!!!!

1. Must Start on DEX Convert it using the guides for rebug CFW..
2. In rebug toolbox under selector section set the following
Mode: rebug
XMB operation mode: Debug
Debug Menu: DEX
3. Go to debug Settings
4. Find the setting Update Server URL and change to anything (I used www.fckyousony.net)
5. Find the NP environment setting under Debug Settings
6. Change NP environment to a blank/invalid entry
7. Restart
8. Try to sign in to make sure you are blocking PSN access

The Following is optional:

9. Using the rebug toolbox revert back to CEX
10. Follow the on screen instructions to reboot (if it dosent just do so)
11. Try signing in. you should be greated with the same DNS error as when on DEX with an invalid NP.
12. Enjoy your CEX machine with a PSN bypass.

Simplicity is a modified version of the well known backup loaded “Iris Manager”. The source version I started with is v2.58 by Estwald.

  • Background colors have been removed, leaving a simple black.
  • Music has been completely removed.
  • Date, Time, Temp, and Device Space has also been removed.
  • In cover flow mode game sorting by console has been removed.
  • FTP Icon’s color has been changed
  • Other minor GUI changes were made.
  • Navigation controls have been altered (“X” is accept, “O” is back, “Triangle” is game settings, “Square” is not used, “Select” is global settings “, “Start” is not used)
  • The rest stayed the same.

Changes for Simplicity v2.58.1:

  • added back the USB overlay

Other changes will be coming... Thanks you for your support!!

Changes for Simplicity v2.58.3:

  • removed game config*icons*(Direct Boot & Requires Disc) from game selection
  • made adjustments to the grammar throughout...
  • removed unnecessary notifications
  • removed the "Favorites" function
  • changed the font to the default PS3 font
  • added support for DEX versions 4.41, 4.46, and 4.50

  • PSX> PS2: Sample first PSX games in alphabetical order and then the PS3 in the same way (ie, separating the groups and shows first PSX)

The settings are stored: note that it is not the same as pressing L3/R3.

Recharging Icons:

12 remains maximum slider although samples 5 to 7, depending on the width of these (covers Multiman format, fit 7). Recharge is improved by assigning icons in priority cargo from hdd0, then USB and finally that of BDVD in the background.

The system has been considering looking for speed and agility when looking for the game.
