112w 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

IrisMAN Changelog 3.36 (Jan 2/2015):


IrisMAN Changelog 3.37 (Jan 4/2015):

  • Updated the patches by deank for 4.65/4.66 (fix errors 80010017/8001002B/ignore LIC.DAT/proper anti-ODE patch).
  • Added reset USB bus for usb games launched on Cobra/Mamba (thanks to deank)

IrisMAN Changelog 3.38 (Jan 6/2015):

  • Removed the reset USB bus introduced in 3.37 (it was causing conflicts and delays)
  • Updated mamba payloads with the newest versions from PS3 Manager 1.1.1 by _NzV_

IrisMAN Changelog 3.39 (Jan 23/2015):

  • Added shadow copy when installing PKG as bubble from hdd0
  • File Manager: Added support to install all the selected PKG files as bubble
  • File Manager: Added option to mount folders as /dev_bdvd (like webMAN) TIP: For NTFS, instead of install the pkgs as bubble, copy the packages to /dev_hdd0/packages, mount the folder as /dev_bdvd, then use Install All Packages
  • File Manager: Added support to replace /dev_hdd0/webftp_server.sprx with the selected webftp_server_*.sprx
  • Create /dev_hdd0/classic_ps2 when a PS2 Classic is mounted

IrisMAN Changelog 3.40 Beta (Jan 28/2015):

In my tests it fixed the issue with /PSXGAMES. This beta has also a major internal change (some functions now use only the ntfs functions to access the files, instead of lv2 + ntfs functions).

Additionally I added the option to load any sprx in the slot 6 through the File Manager (like webMAN MOD does).

Thanks to: Estwald, Joonie, Habib, deank, u$er, Cobra Team.

LastPlay v1.03 Changelog:

  • Based on IRISMAN 3.37 (deank's patches for 4.65/4.66/Reset USB Bus on Cobra)

webMAN MOD 1.41.00 Changelog:

  • Added auto-fix of PS3 games in ISO/game folder formats (4.20-4.66) (needs more testing)
  • Added shortcut SELECT+O to unmount current game
  • Added more translations webMAN.xml (DK, PL)
  • Merged changes made by deank in webMAN 1.41 (official)
  • Reset USB bus (usb games now are mounted from /dev_usb)
  • New blackscreen patches (ignore LIC.DAT and fix errors 80010017/8001002B)
  • Support for .svg files
  • Trimmed spaces in CSS style
  • Removed cobra_lib_init()

Note: The binaries of webMAN 1.41 official are now included in the pkg.

webMAN MOD 1.41.01 Changelog:

I have updated webMAN MOD 1.41.01. The version 1.41.00 had a bug calculating the PS3_SYSTEM_VER of the PARAM.SFO and the game fix was always fired when a PS3 game was mounted.

  • Fixed an important bug in version detection fixing games

webMAN MOD 1.41.02 Changelog:

  • Merged code from PS3MAPI 1.11 (Jan 5, 2015) (Thanks to NzV)
  • Fixed folder naming during backup of PS3 game mounted on /dev_bdvd
  • Added missing game fix feature to nonCobra editions
  • Added Quick and Forced game fix options (Thanks to kokotonix for the idea)
  • Function get_title_and_id_from_sfo() now receives a buffer of 4KB as
    parameter, instead of allocate it internally.
  • Fixed label "Refresh XML"
  • Add disable syscall 11

"Quick" game fix will scan only USRDIR on game folder, instead of all subdirectories (the default "Auto" mode). "Forced" will force the fix of the next game mounted. Then the setting will be changed to "Quick" mode, to avoid an unwanted game fix by mistake.

Also prepNTFS 1.06 was updated followed by prepNTFS 1.07 (webMAN MOD Edition). It now also extract the ICON0 and PIC1 on multiMAN's cache folder.

PrepNTFS v1.09 (webMAN MOD Edition):

The new prepNTFS 1.09 adds another neat feature for the users that have their isos on FAT32 and want to move them to NTFS. Former versions of prepNTFS only supported non-split ISO images. If the game was stored as split iso, the user was forced to join the files to be able to play the games with webMAN. Now, split ISOs can be mounted with webMAN on both drive formats (fat32 & ntfs)... Credits to Estwald for all these features.

Download: prepNTFS_1.09.pkg

Update 1.08 2015-01-15:

  • Added support to scan 1 level of subfolders on PS3ISO / PSXISO / BDISO / DVDISO (previously only 1 letter subfolders was allowed or iso with the same name of the folder)

Update 1.09 2015-01-30:

  • Added support to scan split iso (.iso.0) on NTFS

webMAN MOD 1.41.03 Changelog:

  • Fixed issue navigating files through webMAN's File Browser on MSIE.
  • Fixed access to files with ".html" extension on Chrome
  • Fixed detection of games named like: "Name (4.xx).iso" on NTFS

webMAN MOD 1.41.04 Changelog:

  • Added support to show multiMAN's covers for PS1/PS2 using the title ID on the file name of the iso
  • Improved title id detection when it is the format: XXXX-YYYYY
  • Updated translations: russian, chinese
  • Fixed regression in the installer when the plugin is installed in /dev_hdd0/plugins

webMAN MOD 1.41.05 Changelog:

  • Added support to mount .MSF .IMG .BIN files for PSX/PS2 (they will be mounted properly if a .CUE is not needed)
  • Reverted file listing buffer to 512 bytes (to support longer file names)
  • Html code in file listing is now auto-simplified when the buffer size is exceeded. If the file name is too long, the file entry will be ignored to avoid html errors.
  • Detection of iso in game use less strstr calls (thus a bit faster)
  • Display plugin edition on rebug editions
  • Avoid launch loop if autoboot is PS2
  • Improved display the icon displayed on html when a game is mounted
  • Swap PS2emus now backups the current emus on Rebug Toolbox
  • Various shortcut combos related to dev_flash are disabled by default (fool proof)

webMAN MOD 1.41.06 Changelog:

  • Fixed issue mounting PS3 games after having mounted a PSX game
  • Fixed regression mounting /net games (from 1.41.05)
  • Added extra delay 2 secs before report error mounting a game

webMAN MOD 1.41.07 Changelog:

  • Added webGUI for ps3mapi editions (thanks to NzV) webGUI can be accessed from any device with a browser. The PC Client is not longer needed.
  • Multiple optimizations. Refer to github for details.

v1.41.08 Test Build (webftp_server_singstar_test.sprx):

This is a *test build* for .08 (still says .07). The new feature is: support to mount "extracted ps2 discs" as /dev_ps2disc (The concept is based on WuEpE's idea, but implemented in a different way and different source code).

Some background info:

  • SingStar is a cross platform game that allows to play PS2 content (songs) on the PS3 version of the game.
  • multiMAN supports this feature mounting of the related PS2 game as /dev_ps2disc.

How to setup the files:

The PS2 game should be copied as files (not as ISO) inside the game's folder with "[PS2" as tag label in the folder name of the ps2 disc's folder.

Example: /dev_hdd0/GAMES/SingStar [BCES00030]/[PS2] SingStar 80s

If the game is an ISO, the "[PS2] disc folders" should be copied into /dev_hdd0/PS2DISC

How to mount the game:

Select the SingStar game through the HTML interface of webMAN. Once the game is mounted, a list of the related [PS2] discs will be listed under "Game loaded successfully."

Start the game through the Bluray disc icon. To swap the disc a PS2 disc, mount one of the [PS2] discs listed on the browser. The PS3 disc will be unmounted and the selected [PS2] disc will be mounted as /dev_ps2disc.

I don't have this game to test this feature. Maybe it is not working as expected. The description of the swap method used in the webMAN MODē build made WuEpE requires 2 physical discs (1 ps3 and another ps2 for detection). Maybe the discs are still required.

This include 2 new web commands: /mount.ps2 and /mount.ps2/unmount

Unlinke WuEpE's method, the unmount button (/mount.ps3/unmount) will unmount all disc types (ps2/ps3/psp/iso/ntfs/etc.). So the command /mount.ps2/unmount is only needed if you want to unmount only /dev_ps2disc

If the test is successful, a workaround could be implemented for mounting the [PS2] disc via XMB.

For the tests, it's initially intended for SingStar, but the feature can be used with any ps2 disc that must be mounted as /dev_ps2disc.

Currently the PS3 ISO games only detect the games in the folder /PS2DISC if the name contains the word "Sing". I may change that in the release version (if everything works fine).

Also I have updated the sprx to support the command /mount_ps2/ (unlike mount.ps2, it will unmount the /dev_bdvd and mount /dev_ps2disc). For the tests, this command should be called manually (replacing the "." in mount.ps2 with "_" in the generated links).

webMAN MOD 1.41.08 Changelog:

  • Added support to scan 1 level of subfolders on PS3ISO / PS2ISO / PSPISO / PSXISO / BDISO / DVDISO (previously only 1 letter subfolders was allowed or iso with the same name of the folder)
  • Added support to filter games by name/path on html game list (This feature allows to search games grouped by genre or by any other category) Use: /index?name-to-be-searched
  • Removed redundant code adding entries in file list (html)

webMAN MOD 1.41.09 Changelog:

  • Change: Display multiMAN cover (if available) instead of disc icon when mM covers are disabled and game has no ICON0.
  • Smaller memory footprint (~1.8KB less than 1.41.07)
  • Improved /net games in html listing (encode title, title with link)
  • wmconfig.bin now read the size of the file (if the size of the struct is larger).
  • Added display of MAC address from LV1 at 0x71C1B0
  • Temp/fan speed ranges are validated in a better way
  • Improved fix_iso with changes suggested by kokotonix
  • Integrated dump/peek memory to webGUI of ps3mapi
  • Added > to memory viewer (/peek.lv)
  • Increased allowed lv1 memory address
  • Fixed issue that was breaking the plugin when SELECT+R1 or SELECT+L1 was pressed.

webMAN MOD 1.41.10 Changelog:

  • Build 1.41.09 has issues with some users due a buffer was too small.
  • Reverted a change in the html syntax of "checked" that caused bugs in PS3 browser.

Thanks to Joonie that helped me to find the cause of the issues.
