February 3, 2013 // 10:17 pm - Following up on his previous update, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald (aka Hermes) has updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 1.60 Beta 2 with the changes below.

Download: Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 2 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 2 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 2 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #2)

To quote, roughly translated: Well, given that D_Skywalk is "low" paternity and asked me to open a new thread, to update it, that I do, taking advantage we have new version

First of all, I would like to put three conditions:

1) I do not carry version control, because in github I canceled, I have no desire to go back to those bastards and git all problems are often under Windows, as not handle http addresses. So I'll post a RAR and point and if someone wants to take control of versions, back on, but for now, I'm not.

2) The official version is that we D_Skywalk and me. Your contributions are welcome, within a limit, it has been said that the GUI should be the same, basically, and not be breaking the application schema. That does not mean that you may not go it alone and break it in your own way, you will have to call but then otherwise your application, by request of D_Skywalk.

Obviously, if the changes are minor, no need to change the application name, but it is not in competition, if not collaboration. If that is respected, I have no objection to lend you aid, etc.

3) The third condition is rather a request that anyone who drives the Wiki, should be an entry "Iris Manager" to link it in this post and facilitaros the task if you or any morning for example, I abandoned the project.

And now, to the point: What's new:

  • Added PSX emulation syscall level: it is no longer necessary to patch the emulators and versions can delete "patched"
  • Works with ps1_netemu. Moreover, it is my choice RECOMMENDED smoother and games will I have to go wrong with ps1_emu, here are perfect
  • Files are needed. Cue with the same name as the. Bin. Img, etc, to describe the audio tracks. If it contains only the binary data, Iris Manager generates its corresponding TOC. psx_storage default also generates a TOC enough for this type of game. As I can complete wakefulness psx_storage operation.
  • Ability to load an external ROM to allow access to the transmission Memory Card (getting into a file dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4 ps1_rom.bin).
  • If you press CIRCLE + EQUIS with external ROM enabled, runs ejected disc so you can access the PSX MC Manager without having to disconnect the USB device. Unplugging / replugging once, the disc will be mounted and run.

More details IMPORTANT iso.txt psx 1.60, within the file Rar.


Finally, from butnut comes some related feedback, as follows: With version 1.60 beta 2, Chrono Cross does not freeze when you go into the status screen, and Vigilante 8 has working music too (V8 requires .cue file)

Today aquilino has made available a PS3 JFW DH MA Debug JMB Selector v1.0 alongside a demonstration video of it in action for Custom Firmware users.

Download: PS3 JFW DH MA Debug JMB Selector v1.0 / PS3 JFW DH MA Debug JMB Selector v1.0 (Mirror)

To quote, roughly translated: Hello fellow for here I leave my bit for this firmware that has the potential juju. Based picker rebug author jjolano.

Selector is a QA or debug menu instead of using an addon for each menu I joined the two addon and you only have to choose. The interface is simple console like the way I do not know, reminds me of "Startpatch" of the Wii still in line console mode.

It is in English if that change is Spanish for the people. Created PSL1GHT SDK. This slim JFW tested on my DH and all ok, not tested on fat. Notice that writes to the flash homebrew, I take responsibility for its misuse.


  • Start button: QA mode
  • Button select: debug mode
  • Button x: we went to the PS3 menu

As stated in the logo only for JFW DH.

Video demonstration of their functioning:

Hello, here I (aka Blackdeath) bring users a PS3 BD Tool add-on utility for JFW DH 3.56 MA CFW, which allows you to quickly and simply obtain the information of the PlayStation 3 BD reader from JMB without Linux.

Download: PS3 BD Tool: JFW DH 3.56 MA CFW Add-On

How It Works:

This tool will take out the HRL both the default reader as currently used by the console and leave you in a log with all the information pertinent to this besides dumps an important part of them to USB, plus it also includes the possibility that if a movie BD inserted before running this tool you MKB_RO.INF the dump in the usb along with HRL and the log where you can cap your version have direct current MKB.

Mode Of Operation:

  • If you are going to use the tool you ought to connect a usb port closest to the reader (dev_usb000), It will dump you there the HR
  • It is not compatible with the rest of CFW.

More details are available on the DH site here with a rough translation below:

Good friends, this time with another utility come more attuned to those researching on the subject or more BD playback on BD so here you have an addon for MA only with a simple but useful power and this addon will allow MA to get information about the BD quickly and easily from the JMB without linux as before with the sg3-utils.

This tool will take out the HRL the reader both the default (empty) as currently used by the console and leave you in a log all the information relevant to this besides dumpearos an important part of them to USB, plus it also includes the possibility that if a movie bd inserted before running this tool you MKB_RO.INF the dump the USB with the HRL and the log where you can cap have your version of MKB directly today.

This can be used in addition to guide recovery of reproduction to stop here:

As you see new facilities unique to MA for community members to research the BD.
