March 3, 2013 // 10:40 pm - Following up on his previous release, PlayStation 3 developer Estwald (with help from D_Skywalk) has updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.16 with the changes detailed below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.20 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v2.20 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / Iris Manager v2.20 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #2) / Iris Manager v2.20 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #3) / Iris Manager v2.20 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Animated Icon) / Iris Manager v2.20 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (USB Game Launcher - homelaunc1) / GIT

To quote, roughly translated: v2.20 Changelog:

  • New payload v8 syscall eliminating the syscall 36 and used instead to 8 redirections. The syscall 8 works in a hidden in applications, thus respecting the other use that gives the syscall 8 in certain firmwares (LV1 Peek)
  • Added multiMAN method for disc-less from / APP_HOME (thanks for commenting DeanK how it works). This increases the compatibility.
  • Added patched explore_plugin.sprx method to launch the games from road / dev_bdvd when selecting / app_home/PS3_GAME. This method connects when “No Controller BDVD” and requires that each CFW patched module (see explore_plugin_notes.txt within patch_tools_libfs_exploreplugin.rar). Grid is a game thus far.
  • Fixed all (fcking) problems and other productions, as authentication based disks using CFW 3.41, 3.55, 4.21 and 4.31 (yes, I’ve been to them all)
  • Now HDD0 mounts are safer, both for the method how it can be accessed only “/ dev_bdvd” in reading.
  • Added ability to restart by pressing TRIANGLE on the main screen
  • Iris Manager now works in two ways, thinking about those who have BDVD operational unit and the voiceless.
  • New homelaunc1 (must be installed because the former will not work)

This is a summary of the disk operating modes: Available options are:

Requires Disc:

  • With controller, disk not only asks “Yes” if no blocking routes / APP_HOME. This may prevent it from interfering with games.
  • No Controller: obviously hard but never require it to “No” will be provided / APP_HOME (some games with trophies bug report, if this option is set to no). For riding HDD0 is protected.

BD Emu:

  • Mount BDVD: connects libfs_patched.sprx if present and mount the device as a unit / dev_bdvd. No controller is the most compatible option, especially with the “Required Disk” to “No”. With controller, disk required (but not cancel / APP_HOME itself)
  • LIBFS: simply connect the module and reroute the game / dev_bdvd and / APP_HOME if applicable. No controller is less compatible than “Mount BDVD”. With controller, disk required (but not cancel / APP_HOME itself)
  • Off: simply redirects the game to / dev_bdvd and / APP_HOME if applicable. It can work with or without disk, depending on the game

START-> Tools (Tools):

  • With BDVD controller: To work with or without disc. In mounting options using USB drives or in the case of a patch HDD0 / dev_ps2disc. When activated, it goes to the XMB (to be activated to reenter)
  • No controller BDVD: HDD1 is mounted in place. When activated, the unit is expelled if I had a disc inside.

NOTE: there should be no disk in this mode. No controller mode works well without reader (mine is unplugged right now) in 4.3 CFW bdemu Miralatijera with flag on). “No parent” when required disk mode, connect seeking explore_plugin.sprx that can be easily prepared by extracting from the flash, txt following notes:

The explore_plugin is used to launch games from /dev_bdvd in disc ausence. The CFW 4.31 Miralatijera includes the flag “bdemu” to work without BDVD controller, but you need also one path to launch the games: this is the path

  • Extract /dev_flash/vsh/module/explore_plugin.sprx using FTP or from PUP
  • Copy to the patch_explore_plugin.bat folder explore_plugin.sprx, scetool (scetool.exe, zlib1.dll and folder “data” with the appropriate key)
  • In the case of CFW 3.41 use patch_explore_plugin_for_3.41.bat because it patch the game category to debug too
  • Run patch_explore_plugin.bat or patch_explore_plugin_for_3.41.bat as the case
  • Rename explore_plugin_patched.sprx as explore_plugin_341.sprx, explore_plugin_355.sprx, explore_plugin_355dex.sprx, explore_plugin_421.sprx, explore_plugin_421dex.sprx, explore_plugin_430.sprx or explore_plugin_431.sprx to correspond with the firmware
  • Repeat: explore_plugin must to correspond with the firmware!!!
  • Copy the explore_plugin to Iris Manager folder (/dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4)
  • Enable BD-Emu options in Iris Manager “Without BDVD Controller” (press START, Tools) to work. With preference, uses “Mount BDVD” option because it moves the game to the root of the device (don't worry, the fake /dev_bdvd device is write protected)
  • Without explore_plugin patched you can not connect / app_home/PS3_GAME with / dev_bdvd and the mode is useles. Working on this

Thanks for the Update! But i wonder if theres a chance the PS2_DISC-flag gets enabled again?

Was designed for SingStar in v1.41.08 and seemed to work quite well (just tested that on latest rebug)

I just got this right now. I use multiman so would anyone prefer Iris instead?

webMAN MOD 1.42.02

  • Support 4.75 DEX, thx to Alexander to porting offsets patches, i'm to lazy to do it
  • Now control fan is disabled by default on the first boot of webMAN MOD (requested by lot of users)
  • Updated Italian xml file

webMAN MOD 1.42.03

  • Complete support for 4.60 DEX
  • Added new memory footprint profil MAX+ (1280KB)
  • Corrected some offsets patch for 4.75dex
  • Added Osirisx's changes for his plugin (PS3XPAD)
  • Redirect net_host/PKG to app_home to allow install pkg files using the combo for net0/net1
  • BD/DVD regions now also show the country/region (in addition to code)
  • Now XMB is sorted by first 6 letters, instead of first 4 letters.
  • The function that read the registry is now a general purpose function (with small optimizations)
  • Changed some hard coded numbers to defined constants (e.g. SC_COBRA_SYSCALL8, MAX_XMB_ITEMS)
  • Small bug fix in line that says: //net0/net1/net2
  • Other small fixes that I don't remember

I've updated the lasted version of 1.42.03 with 2 major fix with the help of aldostools. I suggest to use the lasted binary files or pkg, available on github.

Thanks aldo for his personal changelog.

webMAN MOD 1.43.01

  • Support 4.76 CEX (thanks Sony, for this biggest fw update...)
  • Control fan system is better than before (more explanation below by aldotools)
  • The game list is now sort by CD# (e.g FF PS1)
  • Local IP with adapter is now displayed (config and popup)
  • Offsets improvement for fix game compatibility
  • Updated Italian & Russian lang files

It supports Rebug 4.75.1. Let me try to explain how it works:

  • webMAN's fan control tries to keep cool CPU and RSX.
  • If one of them reach the target/max temperature (e.g. 66 C), the fan speed will be increased gradually (+2) until the temperature start to decrease.
  • If the temperature is 1 degree or more higher than the target/max temperature, then the fan speed is increased even more faster.
  • When the temperature start to decrease, the fan speed is decreased gradually (-1). This is done that way, because we want to keep the temperature as cool as possible and avoid the "yo-yo" effect.

Deank added additional heuristics to manage some special conditions, but
in simple terms this is the algorithm. So i decrease the fan speed faster under the following conditions:

  • If the temperature is 3 degrees below the target/max temperature, it decreases the fan speed -1. if the fan speed is higher than 66%, it decreases -2
  • If the temperature is 5 degrees below the target/max temperature, it decreases the fan speed -1. if the fan speed is higher than 50%, it decreases -2

webMAN MOD 1.43.02

  • Support 4.76 DEX
  • Added virtual pad support - webpad at (all build)

From aldostools: Thank you OsirisX for your tweaks... I tested the "web pad" feature with my smartphone and with the PC/keyboard and it's working great.

I used the following GUI (updated for webMAN 1.43.02)... anyone can make a custom GUI with all the buttons/analog stick/etc. Movian Remote [Showtime Media Center Remote Controller]

Thanks again! Good job OsirisX. The source code includes the latest changes made by Matsumot0.

P.S. I love how it behaves with the XMB's video player.

TIP: For Movian, use the light theme... The dark theme now doesn't behave properly due the double commands. If you still want to use the dark theme, press F2 to toggle the "web pad".

webMAN MOD 1.43.03

  • Added support for _hold / _release parameters in /pad.ps3 (for faster/better response in virtual pad)
  • webPAD GUI for PC support this in "Game Mode"
  • was updated to also support "Game Mode" using keyboard
  • A new theme GUI:
  • Updated the libraries in "vsh" and "lib" folders (Mysis & 3141card)
  • Fixed a couple of compilation warnings
  • /popup.ps3 (without parameters) now shows the system info popup (select+start)
  • Updated wm icons for XMBM+
  • Updated Russian lang files.

Thanks to aldostools

webMAN MOD 1.43.04 (via

  • Code refactoring main.c has been split into 32 separate modules, grouped by category
  • Added the shutdown.ps3 option to webMAN.xml & webMAN_ES.xml
  • Combo L3+R1+O to restart using VSH method and added L3+R1+X to shutdown using VSH method
  • Updated Russian lang file again
  • Updated German lang file
  • Updated webMAN_XX.xml files
  • New icons has better definitions + some new

/shutdown.ps3 uses the syscall power off (like before).
/shutdown.ps3?vsh now uses the VSH method (performs a standby). Any parameter can be used (e.g. /shutdown.ps3?standby)

/restart.ps3 now uses VSH restart (instead of lpar restart).

/reboot.ps3?vsh does the same as restart.ps3
/reboot.ps3?quick performs lpar restart
/reboot.ps3?soft performs soft restart via syscall
/reboot.ps3 performs hard reboot via syscall

Notice: There is an important difference between VSH shutdown and syscall power off. The syscall turns off the console completely. The VSH leaves the console in standby if Settings > Remote Play Settings > Remote Start is turned On. If the option is Off, the console turns off completely.

webMAN MOD 1.43.05 (via

  • Added http commands: /mkdir.ps3 and /rmdir.ps3 (without parameters they create hdd folders for ISOs)
  • /dev_bdvd/PS3_UPDATE now is redirected when the plugin is loaded (and when a game is mounted) This is intended to prevent an accidental update if a game disc is inserted in the drive
  • XML: Improved sorting of titles that include numbers (e.g. Uncharted 2, Uncharted 3)
  • Fixed bug fixing game folders with many subfolders (+6 levels)
  • Fixed filter games by title (/games.ps3?title and /index.ps3?title)
  • File manager now shows total size of devices in bytes & MB
  • Moved code from main.c to 2 new include modules: combos.h and fancontrol2.h (poll_thread)
  • Added menu selection using keyboard on slider mode (mobile.html)
  • Added syscall 38 to remove_cfw_syscalls() in stealth.h
  • lv2 peek/poke now are the last removals in remove_cfw_syscalls()
  • Fixed icons copy cachefiles.png & filemanager.png for XBMB+ (updater pkg)
  • Updated Italian, French and Slovak lang files
  • Update urls in web panel (New subdomain ( PS3 Remote Controller for webPAD)

webMAN MOD 1.43.06 (via

webMAN MOD 1.43.06 is live:

  • Fix cache issue on PS3 browser with certain http commands (e.g. restart.ps3). Thanks to Dino05.
  • Added delete mode to File Manager (requires JavaScript enabled)
  • Added option to save plugins currently loaded to /boot_plugins.txt and other boot files.
  • Installer now auto-enable stage2.bin if Cobra was disabled.
  • Updated simplified chinese.

Finally, from RabinoVich: Thx for update. But seems 'simple bug' at some languages not fixed. Pls include these files (linked above) to next release.

  • fixed internet-shares option for some languages
  • new russian translation, add some string and more edited, correct mistakes

P.S. Inside PARAM.SFO of 1.42.03 written 1.42.02.

From SNK: New Icon setup created by MiZiO90:

Download: WebMAN MOD 1.43.04 [MxM]


Install WebMan 1.42.03.pkg mod, then install NeW ICON.pkg. The latter will replace all of the classic icons of WebMan with those made by MiZiO90. Compatible with all CFW 4.xx.

Installation of Rebug 4.66.01 and 4.70.01

If WebMan has already enabled you need only install the package NeW ICON.pkg. If you want to install the latest version of mod WebMan you have to turn off the integrated CFW Team rebug from the toolbox, install the updated version, and install the new icons.

All credits go to Matsumot0 for version 1:42:02 and Alexander for the porting of the offset on CFW Dex. Thanks Aldo Vargas for corrections made in version 1:42:03 and MiZiO90 for new icons.

The UP0001-IRISMAN3_47_1kk.pkg files linked HERE should be mirrors for it, even though they are renamed differently.
