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 up on Hybrid Manager v1.00, today PlayStation 3 developer BillGates returns with Hybrid Manager v1.02 followed by Monster Manager v1.02 by faxtron, which are new Iris Manager forks with details below.

Download: hybrid_manager.pkg

To quote, roughly translated: HYBRID Manager Update 2 (Oct.04.2014)

  • Updated files ENGLISH and SPANISH language.

In HYBRID options User Interface (GUI) is in ENGLISH only because in that part of the original code IRIS does not use language files. I have corrected this and added those lines of translation.

The other languages ​​are included in the measure can someone translate these would be the lines of text to be translated:

[Register or Login to view code]

From Faxtron (via elotrolado.net/hilo_aplicacion-iris-manager-v2-93_1862716_s4430#p1738360342 and elotrolado.net/hilo_aplicacion-iris-manager-v2-93_1862716_s4650#p1739139449 and daxhordes.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=126068#p126068) comes Monster Manager which is also a direct port of Iris Manager 2.93 compatible with PS3 CFW 3.41 to 4.75.

Download: MONSTER MANAGER.pkg / MONSTER MANAGER 1.01.pkg (Mirror) / MONSTER MANAGER 1.02.pkg / Monster-Add-Ons_4.75.pkg / MONSTERMR Priority ON_OFF.rar / MONSTERMANAGER-master.7z

Rough translation: Here I leave the upgrade manager Iris fork that I have and leave again in case any of you used as the preferred Hybrid arrives. Iris is still basically in disguise but with support CFW not supported by the original version, including the new 4.70.

This compiled and prabado in my console with Cobra CFW 4.66 but is supposed to work perfect in 4.70 including fan control because you add their corresponding payloads / mamba.

Now I have not tried at 4.70 because I'm not on installing new CFW until you see a cobra CFW 4.70. If anyone is in 4.70 and want a prostitute Iris without there you have it.

All thanks to Estwald as usual we can not forget is your project not mine. Greetings!

Monster Manager 1.02 Monster add-ons for:

  • explore_plugin_475.sprx
  • libfs_patched.sprx
  • ps1_emu_patched2.self
  • ps1_netemu.self

Priority on and off for this manager (linked above).

Thanks to brunolee for the priority on and off tool. This fork is made by me.




v1.01 Changelog:

New on Monster Manager v1.01:

  • Support for all CFWs
  • Support for new CFWs 4.70
  • Support for all CFWs mamba and for new CFWs 4.70
  • Support fan control for all CFWs and for new CFWs 4.70
  • Habib already tested on CFW 4.70 and fixed a bug in CFW 4.70

.SPRX modules patched to 4.70 cfw scoring two modules .sprx inside the main folder of the manager in question (and Irisman monster, and incorporates gamesonic), then restart the manager, these modules give you greater compatibility disc-read JB games.

v1.02 Changelog:

  • Updated support for CFW 4.66 DEX.
  • Updated support for CFW 4.70 DEX.
  • Updated support for CFW 4.75.
  • Put default values Estwald fan control

Iris Manager remains a support CFWs 2.93 with the official does not offer.

Finally, Play Manager is also based on Iris Manager v2.93 official and recompiled by _Slash_ (via elotrolado.net/hilo_aplicacion-iris-manager-v2-93_1862716_s4480#p1738493009 and daxhordes.org/forum/viewtopic.php?p=127115#p127115 and elotrolado.net/hilo_aplicacion-iris-manager-v2-93_1862716_s4650#p1739138462) as a direct port of Iris Manager.

Download: Play Manager.pkg / libfs_explore_plugin.7z / Play Manager v1.04 Fix.pkg / explore475.7z

Rough translation: From what I see I am not the only one tired of seeing other managers based on iris lose the essence of the masterpiece that left us Estwald, so I gave myself the task of adding support for CFW that no current iris.

After several weeks doing tests, I leave my small contribution that baptized him as Play Manager and the new features included are:

  • Added support for DEX CFW 4.46, 4.53 DEX, DEX 4.55, 4.60, 4.65, 4.65 DEX, 4.66, 4.66 and 4.70 DEX.
  • Added support for CFW 3.55 Mamba, DEX 3.55, 4.21, 4.21 DEX, DEX 4.30 4.30, 4.31, 4.40, 4.41, 4.46 DEX, 4.50, 4.50 DEX, 4.53 DEX, DEX 4.55, 4.60, 4.65, 4.65 DEX, 4.66, DEX 4.66 and 4.70.
  • Previous music files were removed to add 3 new songs.
  • The defaults of the fans for a more aggressive were modified.
  • The path to the folder "iris" used to copy files to the folder USB Manager by "play" device was changed.

An example of the last point: If using loose games folders (jailbreak) and copy the patched need for greater compatibility (libfs_patched.sprx and explore_plugin_xxx.sprx) files, only created in the root of your USB device the "play" folder within it copied the files before and later mentioned in the manager (having already connected your USB device on the PS3) enter "Tools" and select the "Copy from / dev_usb / play the Play Manager folder" and began to copy the files to the folder manager.

Assuming you are in the 4.66 CFW files would be as follows:

[Register or Login to view code]

This process also serves to add wallpapers, within the capeta "play" have to create a new folder called "pictures" and within the funds placed copied. Example:

[Register or Login to view code]

They can also add your favorite song (in case you do not like the songs you add) with this method, just put the song in the "play" folder with the name "music.mod". Example:

[Register or Login to view code]

All this they can do it in one step, thus saving considerable time to copy all the files that you add.

I leave the download links and Play Manager and explore_plugin libfs several files and patched CFW (linked above).

Update: I leave the corrected version of the Manager Play (Play Manager v1.04 Fix, linked above) now no longer gives black screen at startup.

New in Fix Play Manager v1.04:

  • Updated support for CFW 4.75.
  • The choice of profiles for fans is added.

Greetings.

Following up on Iris Manager 2.93 (Unofficial 4.65 CFW Support Update) by BillGates and IRISMAN.pkg (v3.30+) by Aldostools, today PlayStation 3 developer BillGates returns with a new Iris Manager fork dubbed Hybrid Manager v1.00 with details below.

Download: hybrid_manager.pkg / hybrid_manager.pkg (Mirror)

To quote, roughly translated: I personally prefer that this thread is still active and not create another to not that Estwald back and not see that happening, this is the thread of IRIS, here is where I was born and live the true spirit of IRIS and its people, here I started D_SKYWALK, followed Estwald, ALDO and then you all good.

And finally I've never been but I get daring and wonder like crazy and sometimes I get sidetracked but hey at least this time I came out something useful and functional, as aldo said the thing was in COPY / PASTE (and a little beyond that everything copied did not work the same on both sides).

Well there goes the IRIS_2.93 with support for CFW_465 MAMBA, with 2 or 3 slight modifications to my taste but only at the interface level without interfering with the original classic IRIS, is a PKG that installs pre-configured to IRIS DISCLESS user so that the newly-arrived less intrepid and have no problems with the ISO support.

Also I include values ​​FAN threshold temperature a bit different (more aggressive) than those of Estwald but very useful in the area of ​​the CARIBBEAN where I live, if you want to return to the classical values ​​just have to Restore Defaults in the menu CONTROL FAN.

Advice: If the covers are hand JPG MULTIMAN style that copied to "HD0 / game / HYBRIDMAN / covers /" the visual style or add GUI looks better in this mode.

Then this would come to be the LITE version, I have created a FULL version which includes all the covers to MULTIMAN but the resulting PKG is around 100mb and I have bandwidth to upload it, soon I will, I promise.

GREETINGS!

Hybrid Manager v1.00 by BillGates

Hybrid Manager is another fork of Iris Manager, based on the original version 2.93 with added support for 4.65, pre-configured for Discless and more aggressive settings for the fan controller.

Changes in v1.00:

  • Changed name to HYBRID Manager and title id to HYBRIDMAN
  • Added MAMBA support for CFW 4.65
  • Added 4.65 CFW Support

Changes in v1.01:

  • Added option to switch from the Japanese Standard buttons (button behavior “CIRCLE” mode
  • Added option to disable the screen “Welcome or Splash Screen” (these 2 new options are in the menu to change the GUI)
  • Correction minute details in the user interface BIG_COVERS_FX
  • The “FTP Server” is not pre-configured to start after installation (in previous versions the installer HYBRID autoiniciaba the FTP server, this could lead to nuisance warnings if RED was not (good) set)
