February 4, 2013 // 5:16 pm - Following shortly after yesterday's revision, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald has updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 1.60 Beta 3 followed by Beta 4 with the changes detailed below.

Download: Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 3 / Beta 4 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 3 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 3 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #2) / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 4 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 4 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #2) / Iris Manager Wiki

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

What's new:

1.60 Beta 3 Changelog:

  • Improved emulation ps1_emu. Fixed some bugs, besides adding security enhancements. There is no sound cuts so annoying, anymore.
  • Fixed problem with Internal_MC that were wrong (which should have got 0xa0 instead of 0x0a )
  • Added ability to create a formatted Internal_MC (Video / Others)
  • Added the ability to run ps1_netemu.self and ps1_emu.self from Iris directory (if they are copied to /dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4. This opens the possibility (with a proper resign), to use emulators from a upper firmware in a lower one, and can be used patched or not)

1.60 Beta 4 Changelog:

  • Improveed ps1_emu emulation . now work games like Vagrant Story or Resident Evil
  • Added mode 3 to payload_storage to let launch the ISO for the cheats disc having a PSX disc on the drive. Just attach a pendrive, run with cheats and at the appropriate time, eject the ISO removing the pendrive. That works at least with Xploder 4 (if it’s necessary, you’ll have to eject the disc and insert it again: as soon as you detach the pendrive, the payload is disabled and the disc will work normally).
  • Fixed some bugs, like copying file when the USB is almost full.
  • All the payloads were modified to add a detection flag. That let you restart the console, for example, if you used multiMAN and the syscall 8 is inactive.

We continue in testing phase. In particular, I'm interested in receive reports from people that is having problems with black screens when they start the emulator (I got a check to see if the area of LV2 where I install is clean, but it could be the fcking of the instruction cache, therefore I have increased the number of cycles of the routine copy [+ laughs])

Regards

Will this allow the running of games that include the 3.6x keys in their boot files? (ie Portal 2 and NCAA foOtball 12)

Some people use software to convert psx games into eboots for the psp. Would there be anyway to convert those into being compatible with the PS3?

wow ps2 games and PSN access this sound like the best thing in a long time happening to my PS3, I hope PSN solution works for long but guess that would be stupid to wish for any way PS2 games running will be fun.

This upcoming CFW is the most exciting news in a long time. The license generator for PSN games especially caught my attention, one of my PSN games hasn't been functional since 3.41, so perhaps this could take care of it. As for activating the 8th SPU, too bad it won't do any good for games considering they're programmed to use a maximum of 6 so I suppose it'd only be good for homebrew. Would it be possible to disable the hypervisor security that runs on 1 of the SPUs? Having all 8 SPUs available for the lulz would be nice.
