July 23, 2013 // 2:24 pm - 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.

IrisMAN 3.47.1 Changelog: (via openmodding.net/T-ps3-ps3-irisman-3-47-1-unofficial-update-by-alexander?pid=100796#pid100796) attempts to fix the following glitch:

From Charlie.bucket: freezing after starting any mounted game, forced to hold power button for 30 seconds, after 3 times of freezing/resetting i got caught in a restore database loop and had to re-install ferrox 4.75 v1.00.

  • Updated new MAMBA of _NzV_
  • Updated patches deank with those of M @ tsumoto

Special thanks to aldostools to his manager and I hope you come back soon on the scene. The boys MiZiO90 , SNK , REIZA72 (Beta Tester).

Without a valid DUMP you can not get IDPS, LV2MOUNTADDR .... For the rest of the lv2kernel.elf it has everything, or almost.

I'm working on porting the 4.75dex (IrisMan Unofficial). If you might be interested, to integrate them into webmanmod in a future release of 475 DREX.

Please test and report any issue.
