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

  • Fixed freeze mounting games in 1.34.08

prepNTFS v1.05 by deank

Download: prepNTFS 1.0 (297 KB) / prepNTFS 1.0 (SELF) (273 KB)

Prepare NTFS drives for webMAN access. prepNTFS reads the /PS3ISO, /PSXISO, /DVDISO and /BDISO folders (PS3 Games, DVD Video and Blu-ray movies) in your NTFS external drive and allows to mount and play your ISOS using webMAN 1.24 and later.

Folders - Content:

  • /PS3ISO - PS3 Games
  • /PSXISO - PS1 Games
  • /DVDISO - DVD Video
  • /BDISO - Blu-ray Video

Update 2013-12-11:

  • prepNTFS is updated to clean the .ntfs* files from the wmtmp folder

To grant NTFS access to webMAN you will have to use prepNTFS. You can either install the prepNTFS.pkg application or launch prepNTFS.self from multiMAN's mmOS. In either case prepNTFS will scan all connected USB drives and will generate data for all PS3ISO/BDISO/DVDISO entries in /dev_hdd0/tmp/wmtmp.

NTFS entries have .ntfs[PS3ISO] / .ntfs[BDISO] / .ntfs[DVDISO] suffixes - 64KB each - this is what webMAN will use to mount the games/videos.

You have to use prepNTFS if you add new content to your NTFS formatted USB HDDs. Do not forget to use [Refresh XML] / [Refresh HTML] to refresh webMAN's data.

Note: Do not launch the prepNTFS.self with NTFS mode (PFS driver) enabled in multiMAN/mmCM.

If you really want to see something naughty, check this: github.com/aldostools/webMAN-MOD/commit/181ce8ad9b2707390156b668e74700b429fd5499

btw the webchat doesn't need any external component... only ~50 lines of code were added.

Changelog for webMAN MOD 1.34.10 Multi 23 (2015-01-02):

  • Fixed issue with webMAN Games not showing (due change from localhost to 127.0.0.1)
  • Added ability to use a custom IP address on XMB links (defaullt 127.0.0.1)
  • File Manager now can display more files
  • File Manager use now relative links (makes html smaller)
  • Added link to /cpursx.ps3 to search current game on google (url can be customized)
  • mygames.xml now is always generated if it doesn't exists
  • Added webMAN MOD PS3 Manager API v1.0.2 edition by _NzV_ (cobra+multi23+ps3mapi+rebug+webchat)

PS3M API edition requires PRX Loader 1.08U mod by NzV or with Cobra version of PS3M API.

Download: PS3M API Tool Client for PC

Installation:

  • Copy /dev_hdd0/game/UPDWEBMOD/USRDIR/webftp_server_ps3mapi.sprx to /dev_hdd0/game/PRXLOADER/USRDIR/webftp_server.sprx
  • Load with PRX Loader 1.08U mod by NzV on nonCobra CFW or with Cobra CFW disabled.

For Cobra version of PS3M API:

  • Copy /dev_hdd0/game/UPDWEBMOD/USRDIR/webftp_server_ps3mapi.sprx to /dev_hdd0/webftp_server.sprx
  • Add /dev_hdd0/webftp_server.sprx to /dev_hdd0/boot_plugins.txt (if it is not already added)

Rebug users using PS3MAPI should replace /dev_blind/vsh/module/webftp_server.sprx

From Rudi Rastelli: Short how-to:

1. Copy "webftp_server_webchat.sprx" to root of "dev_hdd0"
2. Add line "/dev_hdd0/webftp_server_webchat.sprx" to "/dev_hdd0/boot_plugins.txt"
3. Reboot PS3
4. In chat click on "guest"-button and enter your name

How can i leave the chat ? Reboot ?

Regards
Rudi

From aldostools: Just leave /chat.ps3

You never are logged in. The service logs only what you post and keeps refreshing the log every 10 seconds. If the log grows too much, it truncates the first 4kb. Simple, efficient and effective
