April 4, 2013 // 11:48 pm - Following up on their previous updates, PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk (with help from Miralatijera) have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.25 which now includes a File Manager with the changes detailed below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.25 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v2.25 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / Iris Manager v2.25 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #2) / Iris Manager v2.25 (Animated Icon) / GIT

Iris Manager v2.25 Changelog, roughly translated: New: in version 2.25

  • Added support for installation. PKG over 4GB and from HDD0 (in / dev_hdd0/IMANAGER4/PKG).
  • Added "File Manager / File Manager" (under "Tools / Tools"), with ability to create folders, delete, copy, move from file / folder or by group selection.

Example: copying to a USB device in the x: \ iris \ PKG PKG the fragmented (.666 xx files generated by split4G.exe, for example).
From Iris Manager, go to "Tools" use "Copy from / dev_usb / folder iris Iris" and "Install. PKG" unplugging USB storage devices, to show the / the. PKG / dev_hdd0/IMANAGER4 / PKG. Normally install.

It also has the ability to:

  • mount / unmount "/ dev_rewrite" (device / dev_flash with writing),
  • make dumps of LV1 (CFW that support only LV1 peek / poke) and LV2,
  • hex editor,
  • launch. SELF
  • install PKG

Hold Start for one second to access help and know the function of the various buttons

More details: Upon entering, we find the split screens or windows identical sections, A and B. Both are shown at the top, all devices in the system and to change section we use L1/R1.

With L3/R3, we can rotate quickly to current section list, devices, Iris Manager directory or the current directory of the other section. At the top of the window shows the full path at all times and free space on the drive, so you do not lose the orientation

Of course, clicking on folders or devices we listed the following directories / files, provided in alphabetical order and by some new routines that allow us to quickly handle the character set UTF-8 Japanese font and used it for titles.

The sense of having two windows, is obvious: it is easily to provide a source and a destination to copy / move things. The origin is always the currently selected window, obviously.

The root folder, which displays all devices, is special: there no control of our actions and only allows us to select the device with EQUIS, to work from there

The Circle button is used to select / deselect files or folders groups one by one, while the square select / deselect groups all files / folders in the directory. Some actions like copying files or Movement respond to this selection in a group or if there is none, to the folder or file pointed to by the cursor (always overrides group selection, even if only a selected file)

EQUIS button serves to list the / device or perform actions on selected files, then describe.

With the SELECT (eye, go into any device before, it does not work on the screen devices) to the menu of options. Remember to always refer as the source currently selected window (the one with the letter blinking) and target the other.

  • New Folder: Create new folders

  • Rename: To rename files / folders

  • Copy: Copy files / folders. This action is considered 666 xx fragmented files to unite or if the device is not the hard drive, the files fragment xx large as 666. It makes checking available space before copying (copying routine is different to that used in other tasks so far, by the way) and error checking.

  • Move: This option behaves differently if it is to the same device (in which case moving files / folders directly and quickly) or if they are different devices (in which case it behaves first copied to the destination and then if no errors, deleting content source)

  • Delete: Delete files / folders. If you do not know what you do, the option of upsets XD

  • Mount / Unmount dev_rewrite and / dev_rewrite: Mount the device / dev_flash writable (and can cepillaros / dev_flash comfortable XD)

  • Dump LV2: Dumpea in the current folder the Game OS (with its descriptive name, date, etc.)

  • LV1 Dump: Dumpea LV1 in the current folder. This option only works for CFW> = 4.21 LV1 functions using PEEK and POKE. At 3.41 and 3.55 is more cumbersome and simply do not feel like it has something to do for a small utility ...

  • Exit: exit option. Also it comes with SELECT and TRIANGLE

Well, these are the choices overall. A particular level depends on the type of file.

Pressing EQUIS:

  • About. SELF: the run
  • About. PKG: Install PKG. Now let PKG above 4GB
  • On another file: Hexadecimal Editor

Files. SELF and. PKG can be curioseados with the hex editor, using a trick: before pressing CIRCLE to activate group selection.

Hexadecimal Editor (Is what is holding me by the way )


  • Modify files: The editor is simple, always amending current presentation, running some action to change it, we are asked to save the changes. This action depending on the context, means the loss if the changes are not saved or prevents new action that would cause such changes. We recommend, strongly, to proceed first to create a backup of the file to modify, for obvious reasons.

To modify the files, we have a series of buttons:

  • L1/R1 Decrease / increase in current selected one byte. It has ability to auto repeat
  • Decreases EQUIS nibble (half byte) currently selected
  • Increases CIRCLE nibble (half byte) currently selected
  • SQUARE: Restores the original value of the currently selected byte
  • START: Restores the original value of all bytes of the window

To move, we have the following buttons:

  • LEFT / RIGHT / UP / DOWN to move the cursor over the window. Exceeding the limit address above or below 16 moves in 16 bytes. If the window is changed and the changes are not saved in the option that appears not scrolls. It has auto repeat.
  • L2/R2 to quickly scroll through the file. It has auto repeat and speed is increased exponentially, to keep the buttons pressed.
  • Absolute jump to the address described in the next section.
  • Press SELECT to the menu of options. Here it should be noted that if changes are not saved are lost immediately.


  • Go to Address: Option absolute jump: it shows a window with a keyboard where enter hexadecimal addresses easily. With LEFT / RIGHT / UP / DOWN we move through the keyboard, with EQUIS enter number with SQUARE remove the digit from the end, with L2/R2 we can move into the number and accept the jump with circle. With SELECT close the window.

  • Find Hex: Search hexadecimal values ​​(down). We can look for from 1 to 8 bytes. By default, it shows 4, but with L1/R1 can reduce or increase the number of bytes to seek. With LEFT / RIGHT / UP / DOWN we move through the keyboard, with EQUIS enter number with L2/R2 we can move into the number and accept the quest CIRCLE. With SELECT close the window. Press L3/R3 can repeat the search backwards and forwards, in hexadecimal editor

  • String Find Search strings (down). Press L3/R3 can repeat the search backwards and forwards, in hexadecimal editor (note: this option is not yet implemented)

  • Exit: Exit

I think with these options is enough for a hex editor "campaign" with which to make small arrangements from within the PS3

Apart from this, now you create a folder inside the folder PKG Iris Manager: from there you can install PKG with the option to "Install. PKG" if we copy one (without being inside another folder, eye) and we have no USB device connected (if we have one, normal thing if we just copy from there, unplugged)

The idea is this: the "Copy from / dev_usb / iris lets you create a folder on the USB device called iris / PKG and fragmented files and supports 666 xx, it can upload files larger than 4GB to be composed as one in HDD0. then when unplugging USB devices, the PKG is visible only have to be moved to where it finally settles in an instant.

In order to see what you think the new options and if anyone can make a summary pitinglish, to go forward job, I appreciate everyone.

PS: As you can see, the options are in English and will not be translated: English is a very basic and many of the options, may have no use for an ordinary user.

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)

webMAN MOD 1.42.02

  • Support 4.75 DEX, thx to Alexander to porting offsets patches, i'm to lazy to do it
  • Now control fan is disabled by default on the first boot of webMAN MOD (requested by lot of users)
  • Updated Italian xml file

webMAN MOD 1.42.03

  • Complete support for 4.60 DEX
  • Added new memory footprint profil MAX+ (1280KB)
  • Corrected some offsets patch for 4.75dex
  • Added Osirisx's changes for his plugin (PS3XPAD)
  • Redirect net_host/PKG to app_home to allow install pkg files using the combo for net0/net1
  • BD/DVD regions now also show the country/region (in addition to code)
  • Now XMB is sorted by first 6 letters, instead of first 4 letters.
  • The function that read the registry is now a general purpose function (with small optimizations)
  • Changed some hard coded numbers to defined constants (e.g. SC_COBRA_SYSCALL8, MAX_XMB_ITEMS)
  • Small bug fix in line that says: //net0/net1/net2
  • Other small fixes that I don't remember

I've updated the lasted version of 1.42.03 with 2 major fix with the help of aldostools. I suggest to use the lasted binary files or pkg, available on github.

Thanks aldo for his personal changelog.

webMAN MOD 1.43.01

  • Support 4.76 CEX (thanks Sony, for this biggest fw update...)
  • Control fan system is better than before (more explanation below by aldotools)
  • The game list is now sort by CD# (e.g FF PS1)
  • Local IP with adapter is now displayed (config and popup)
  • Offsets improvement for fix game compatibility
  • Updated Italian & Russian lang files

It supports Rebug 4.75.1. Let me try to explain how it works:

  • webMAN's fan control tries to keep cool CPU and RSX.
  • If one of them reach the target/max temperature (e.g. 66 C), the fan speed will be increased gradually (+2) until the temperature start to decrease.
  • If the temperature is 1 degree or more higher than the target/max temperature, then the fan speed is increased even more faster.
  • When the temperature start to decrease, the fan speed is decreased gradually (-1). This is done that way, because we want to keep the temperature as cool as possible and avoid the "yo-yo" effect.

Deank added additional heuristics to manage some special conditions, but
in simple terms this is the algorithm. So i decrease the fan speed faster under the following conditions:

  • If the temperature is 3 degrees below the target/max temperature, it decreases the fan speed -1. if the fan speed is higher than 66%, it decreases -2
  • If the temperature is 5 degrees below the target/max temperature, it decreases the fan speed -1. if the fan speed is higher than 50%, it decreases -2

webMAN MOD 1.43.02

  • Support 4.76 DEX
  • Added virtual pad support - webpad at (all build)

From aldostools: Thank you OsirisX for your tweaks... I tested the "web pad" feature with my smartphone and with the PC/keyboard and it's working great.

I used the following GUI (updated for webMAN 1.43.02)... anyone can make a custom GUI with all the buttons/analog stick/etc. Movian Remote [Showtime Media Center Remote Controller]

Thanks again! Good job OsirisX. The source code includes the latest changes made by Matsumot0.

P.S. I love how it behaves with the XMB's video player.

TIP: For Movian, use the light theme... The dark theme now doesn't behave properly due the double commands. If you still want to use the dark theme, press F2 to toggle the "web pad".

webMAN MOD 1.43.03

  • Added support for _hold / _release parameters in /pad.ps3 (for faster/better response in virtual pad)
  • webPAD GUI for PC support this in "Game Mode"
  • was updated to also support "Game Mode" using keyboard
  • A new theme GUI:
  • Updated the libraries in "vsh" and "lib" folders (Mysis & 3141card)
  • Fixed a couple of compilation warnings
  • /popup.ps3 (without parameters) now shows the system info popup (select+start)
  • Updated wm icons for XMBM+
  • Updated Russian lang files.

Thanks to aldostools

webMAN MOD 1.43.04 (via

  • Code refactoring main.c has been split into 32 separate modules, grouped by category
  • Added the shutdown.ps3 option to webMAN.xml & webMAN_ES.xml
  • Combo L3+R1+O to restart using VSH method and added L3+R1+X to shutdown using VSH method
  • Updated Russian lang file again
  • Updated German lang file
  • Updated webMAN_XX.xml files
  • New icons has better definitions + some new

/shutdown.ps3 uses the syscall power off (like before).
/shutdown.ps3?vsh now uses the VSH method (performs a standby). Any parameter can be used (e.g. /shutdown.ps3?standby)

/restart.ps3 now uses VSH restart (instead of lpar restart).

/reboot.ps3?vsh does the same as restart.ps3
/reboot.ps3?quick performs lpar restart
/reboot.ps3?soft performs soft restart via syscall
/reboot.ps3 performs hard reboot via syscall

Notice: There is an important difference between VSH shutdown and syscall power off. The syscall turns off the console completely. The VSH leaves the console in standby if Settings > Remote Play Settings > Remote Start is turned On. If the option is Off, the console turns off completely.

webMAN MOD 1.43.05 (via

  • Added http commands: /mkdir.ps3 and /rmdir.ps3 (without parameters they create hdd folders for ISOs)
  • /dev_bdvd/PS3_UPDATE now is redirected when the plugin is loaded (and when a game is mounted) This is intended to prevent an accidental update if a game disc is inserted in the drive
  • XML: Improved sorting of titles that include numbers (e.g. Uncharted 2, Uncharted 3)
  • Fixed bug fixing game folders with many subfolders (+6 levels)
  • Fixed filter games by title (/games.ps3?title and /index.ps3?title)
  • File manager now shows total size of devices in bytes & MB
  • Moved code from main.c to 2 new include modules: combos.h and fancontrol2.h (poll_thread)
  • Added menu selection using keyboard on slider mode (mobile.html)
  • Added syscall 38 to remove_cfw_syscalls() in stealth.h
  • lv2 peek/poke now are the last removals in remove_cfw_syscalls()
  • Fixed icons copy cachefiles.png & filemanager.png for XBMB+ (updater pkg)
  • Updated Italian, French and Slovak lang files
  • Update urls in web panel (New subdomain ( PS3 Remote Controller for webPAD)

Finally, from RabinoVich: Thx for update. But seems 'simple bug' at some languages not fixed. Pls include these files (linked above) to next release.

  • fixed internet-shares option for some languages
  • new russian translation, add some string and more edited, correct mistakes

P.S. Inside PARAM.SFO of 1.42.03 written 1.42.02.

From SNK: New Icon setup created by MiZiO90:

Download: WebMAN MOD 1.43.04 [MxM]


Install WebMan 1.42.03.pkg mod, then install NeW ICON.pkg. The latter will replace all of the classic icons of WebMan with those made by MiZiO90. Compatible with all CFW 4.xx.

Installation of Rebug 4.66.01 and 4.70.01

If WebMan has already enabled you need only install the package NeW ICON.pkg. If you want to install the latest version of mod WebMan you have to turn off the integrated CFW Team rebug from the toolbox, install the updated version, and install the new icons.

All credits go to Matsumot0 for version 1:42:02 and Alexander for the porting of the offset on CFW Dex. Thanks Aldo Vargas for corrections made in version 1:42:03 and MiZiO90 for new icons.

The UP0001-IRISMAN3_47_1kk.pkg files linked HERE should be mirrors for it, even though they are renamed differently.
