March 3, 2013 // 9:40 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

Following their previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.95 followed by v2.96, v2.97 and v3.00 with details below.

Download: irismanager-4-x.rar (v2.95) / irismanager-4-x.rar (v2.96) / irismanager-4-x.rar (v2.97) / irismanager-4-x.rar (v3.00) / GIT

To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.95:

Hey there, I allowed myself to add some changes to Iris, things people "neglected", fixes bugs, etc:

New in version 2.95:

  • Fixed Iris ISO tools and PC (now generates MGS V iso correctly)
  • Fix Error 009 now works to firm 4.90 (for games over console firmware)
  • Added support for new firmware Mamba (NZV thanks), and added new firmwares supported LIC.DAT fix for the firmware 4.55 (thanks Alexander, Aldo, Pelayin_5, Faxtron ...)

(Sorry I can not upload the file to the server EOL, but can not access via ftp for quite [+ laughs])

Well, notes on the subject:

First, I continue with the firmware 4.55 (that's why it has fixed the error and fix LIC.DAT 009, I needed). The issue of ISOS, the ruling was that when calculating the space sector could be added with more empty entries ... something that for example, if I create an ISO and extract, copy files, etc, gives no problem but if it gives certain games when copying your data, they input any invalid file or something appears. Anyway, it seems solved.

About support new firmware, in theory it works until 4.76. I say theoretically because obviously I could try being in 4.55. The Mamba support includes firmware that are not supported by Iris Manager in practice, curiously, like the fan control. That opens the possibility that if someone adds those missing firmware, because there is already the work done .

I think that a FW I have not used, I can not test and that probably is obsolete because, well ... it's about what you need to add, as in my case: that at 4.55 and I see that I need a patch and I see you looking, someone added 4.55 (in Irisman specifically version of Alexander).

By the way, returning to Mamba ... I have not reviewed and do not remember things I would have changed by bugs or compatibility: added as it is new, I have not noticed any problem and how it works, let my old binary Mamba but opto by new, since it is the present / future line.

As far does not play anything of scene and do not know where the wind goes, etc, I beg you to apologize if I make some fallito or someone who thinks he should be in the credits, it is not. It has not been easy to find things and it was a surprise to see the work of NZV on github (which Curran [+ laughs])

PS: One comes home for Christmas, well specifically heavy gigs yesterday ... but not in my plans again, just do specific things to notice ... as of now. Being cows, if you touch something, I have time [+ laughs]

PD2: I think it was not necessary to mention it, but all the changes have to source on github.

What's New in version 2.96:

  • Added Controlfan from sm.sprx for Mamba / Cobra (if sm.self not active).

What's New in version 2.97:

  • Added monitor temperature during the game, using monitor.prx (thank WebMan for the libraries used (a deank and others involved sceners))

Use:

In the XMB (press the PS button during gameplay):

  • SELECT + L2: On / Off display temperatures
  • SELECT + TRIANGLE: download monitor.sprx system module

What's New in version 3.00:

NOTE: After installing the PKG is recommended restarting the console, if you've already pre-loaded Iris Manager

  • Sm.sprx and monitor.sprx unified and compatible with sm.self.
  • Added new functions to monitor and "Monitor Settings" screen new Iris Manager (Press START to enter the "Global Options" -> "Tools" -> "Monitor Settings".

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)
