Iris Manager v2.20 PS3 Backup Game Manager Updated By Estwald


Sponsored Links
108w ago - 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

when i go on options and select game manager files the external hdd appears and i can run the Iso's from the folder i create (GAMEZ), but the games dont show on iris manager only the one i have installed on internal hdd , i try to change directory , but seems like program only search in internal hdd , is there anyway to make the games appear on iris manager through my external drive ?

My external hdd is on NTFS and i have a GAMEZ folder on it with some ISO games, on iris manager appears hdd0, it should show usb0 no?

Give me some lights please and thank you by the way!

Best regards !

Did you tried putting all .iso files inside PS3ISO folder? Folder struture should be (external drive root)/PS3ISO/.

Following up on his previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developer Aldo Vargas (aka Aldostools) made available IrisMAN PS3 Backup Game Manager v3.31 alongside Last Play v1.01 and WebMAN MOD v1.30.33, WebMAN MOD 1.30.34, WebMAN MOD 1.30.35 Updater (with M@tsumoto) and WebMAN-MOD 1.31.00 Test Build with the changes outlined below.

Download: IRISMAN.v3.31.pkg / IRISMAN.pkg (Mirror) / LastPlay.v1.01.pkg / webMAN_MOD_1.30.33_Updater.pkg / webMAN_MOD_1.30.34_Updater.pkg (Test Version) / webMAN_MOD_1.30.34_Updater.pkg / webMAN_MOD_1.30.35_Updater.pkg / webMAN_MOD_1.30.35_Updater.pkg (Test Version) / main.c (Source Code) / webMAN_MOD_1.31.00.rar / updater.rar / IrisMAN GIT / WebMAN Mod GIT / IrisMAN Tools (Includes BDUnmount.pkg, FileManager.pkg, IRISMAN.pkg, IRISMAN_Discless_Addon.pkg, IRISMAN_Lite.pkg, LastPlay.pkg, PRX Mamba Loader.pkg) / Aldostools GIT / WebMAN 1.31 by deank

Changelogs: IrisMAN v3.31

IRISMAN 3.31 has been updated with support for 4.65 DEX (4.65 rebug rex with dex kernel or 4.65 rebug d-rex) - Thanks to Joonie.

The source code of IRISMAN 3.31 and webMAN-MOD 1.30.33 are available on github (linked above).

This is an "unofficial" version of Iris Manager 2.93 by Estwald/D-Skywalk. This version includes all the new Cobra/Mamba payload and ISO features added by Estwald.

The changes that I made are mainly related to the user interface (buttons layout are more XMB-like, quick access to File Manager, progress bar when game list is scanned or file permissions are applied, colors, 16 gui modes, etc.).

It also includes the Payloads from Rancid-O's PS3ITA Manager, Joonie and Habib. The most notable feature is that unlike the official version, it scans GAMES/GAMEZ on the external drives.

New mamba payloads for 3.55 / 3.55D / 4.21 / 4.21D /4.30 / 4.31 / 4.40 / 4.41 / 4.41D / 4.46 / 4.46D /4.50 / 4.50D / 4.53 / 4.53D / 4.55 / 4.55D / 4.60 / 4.65 / 4.65D. Now PS3 ISOs are playable on all these CFW without need of Cobra support.

IMPORTANT: If you use webMAN on Cobra CFW, unmount any mounted game before launch IRISMAN.

Changelog 3.31 (Oct 30/2014)


Last Play v1.01

This is an alternative for multiMAN's Last Game based on IRISMAN. Main features:

  • Based on IRISMAN to reduce the conflicts with payloads for IRISMAN/Iris forks users.
  • Support for all CFW payloads already supported by IRISMAN (including mamba and 4.60/4.65 CEX)
  • Support all media supported by IRISMAN (PS3/PSX/PS2/PSP/etc.)
  • Support both multiMAN** and IRISMAN last played games

**Some features in the LASTPLAY.BIN configuration file are not supported.

Changes in 1.01:

  • Fixed BD-Mirror games. LastPlay was not returning them to their original folder. Therefore they failed to mount.
  • Added mamba payloads to the installer.
  • Read the fan control settings from IRISMAN00

WebMAN-MOD v1.30.33

WebMAN MOD is a M@tsumot0's modified version of webMAN 1.30 plugin developed by deank.

This fork provides additional features like user-friendly smart installer/updater for Cobra and NonCobra, IDPS/PSID spoof, support for 19 languages using external files, disable cfw syscalls, remote peek/poke/find in LV1/LV2, remote backup to HDD and from HDD to USB, among other improvements.

Changelog for WebMAN MOD 1.30.33:


Changelog for WebMAN MOD 1.30.34:

  • Added Danish language (Thanks to Assassins at psx-scene)
  • Reverted the code for reduced memory usage introduced in 1.30.30 (it seems it was causing issues) fb.xml is now always created (even if content scanning is disabled at start up)
  • Small speed up improvement generating mygame.xml when some usb devices are not selected for content scanning.
  • The updater should be able to update the rebug's internal webMAN on dev_flash (untested)
  • Fixed net games not being listed on XML if one of the usb devices was unchecked.

Changelog for WebMAN MOD 1.30.35 Multi 21:

  • Fixed a bug in copyfiles function (this prevented the cache of the ICON0/PARAM.SFO for iso stored on ntfs and nethost)
  • Added habib's antiODE patches to Cobra version of webMAN on cfw 4.6x. (These patches should reduce the blackscreens for games stored on external hdd. Thanks to Joonie for the workaround)
  • Don't show bad IDPS/PSID when syscalls are disabled
  • Load last game is now off by default

It seems anti-ODE on 4.65 is causing issues with some games on external hdd. Please try with webMAN-MOD 1.30.35 and report back your results... This test build applies the habib's anti-ODE patches on the Cobra's version of webMAN. Also includes some old patches suggested by Joonie.

The test results are mixed, but in general it seems this build works better than 1.30.34.




PS. It also fixes a bug that prevented to cache the icons/param.sfo from the ISOs when the MM's covers are not used.

From kokotonix: 2 quick notes that may interest:

1. I'm using rebug 4.65.1 in system mode Rebug. When using webman updater pkg, it updates webftp-server.sprx in /dev_hdd0/ but not in /dev_flash/vsh/module (for Rebug) I've tried this with dev_blind mounted and not-mounted.

2. A strange issue: I'm using an external WD ESSENTIALS 1TB hdd fat32 formatted. Webman mod detects well the contents. But if I disable the webman startup message, it fails detecting the games in The external disk.

Changelog for WebMAN MOD 1.30.35 (Test Version):

From littlebalup: So, if i understand well (not sure at all), the problem is comming from the presence of the boot_plugin.txt in /dev_hdd0.

[Register or Login to view code]

From aldostools: Yes, in part the issue is due that code... and due the a bug in Cobra stage2 of rebug 4.65.1 that allows to load webMAN twice (from /dev_flash and from /boot_plugins.txt).

The reason of that check is because I didn't want to touch the /dev_flash if the user is already loading plugins via /boot_plugins.txt.

In a next release I'll make it delete webftp_server.sprx from hdd0 if the file was updated on dev_flash.

This is a test version of the webMAN updater with the suggested changes implemented. Here is the source code (if someone need to check the changes).

Changelog for WebMAN MOD 1.31.00 (Test Version):

  • Added support to scan isos stored on subfolders on PS3ISO/PS2ISO/PSXISO/BDISO/DVDISO (e.g. /PS3ISO/My Game/My Game.iso)
  • Added support to scan multiple isos grouped by single letter subfolder (e.g. /PS3ISO/M/My Game.iso)
  • Fixed cache of ICON0.PNG when game is mounted.
  • Prevent double loading of webMAN on rebug (updater deletes /dev_hdd0/webftp_server.sprx if webMAN is installed on /dev_flash)
  • Added Czech (cestina) & Slovak (slovencina) translations (Thanks by ps3haxcz.com)
  • New modified version of prepNTFS with subfolders support on PS3ISO/PSXISO/BDISO/DVDISO

Please test and report any issue. If everything is working fine I will release it officially.

Note: The source code is also included in the rar. Thank you for the bug report. Could you check this code and tell me if you find something wrong? I can't find the issue (unless you have the sprx with a different name). Anyway I made a little update (source code included), if you want to test it again.
