April 16, 2013 // 8:08 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 2.35 with the changes detailed below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.35 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v2.35 (Animated Icon) / GIT

Iris Manager v2.35 Changelog, roughly translated:

What's new on Iris Manager 2.35

  • Ported all console presentation to support UTF8 instead of ANSI
  • Added improvements to "Archive Manager": ability to edit LV2, RAM, select a piece of code, copy it (max 1MB), paste it on other place(file/memory), use it to find matches (max 512 bytes) or create a new file with that content.
  • Added procedure Write HTAB (thanks to Miralatijera for the assembly code) to make LV2 executable and other stuff [+ laughs]
  • Added Disc-less mode that runs games from a simulated disc in XMB, using BD EMU, patched explore_plugin and patched libfs, has successfully launched all the games I've tried, without addressing /APP_HOME in CFW 4.40 Miralatijera. This mode doesn't work for those who have a broken BD-Drive or don't have a working lector


  • Modules explore_plugin and libfs must be patched.
  • A USB flash drive, memory card or USB storage device connected (recommended method)
  • On Iris Manager, press START to "Global Options", go to "Tools" and select where it says " With/Without BDVD Controller" the "Disc - Less payload" option.
  • Restart Iris Manager and select a game: to have a better compatibility, use BD EMU with patched libfs.sprx or patched explore_plugin.sprx.

Virtual mounting system:

There are three ways to get the disc mounted:

  • On Iris Manager or XMB, insert a USB flash drive, USB storage device, or memory card, and then launch the game.
  • Before to run Iris Manager, insert a USB flash drive, USB storage device or memory card, then run Iris Manager, select a game and the disc will be mounted on XMB automatically.
  • Without a USB device or memory card: Run Iris Manager, select a game and on XMB, run another application, such as "Homelaunc1", that get in and get out quickly. With that, the game will be mounted on XMB.


  • This has been tested in CFW 4.40 Miralatijera: in theory, It should work on other CFW, since the code was created considering the portability (ability to locate the code on any place and re-define the necessary calls).
  • Notice again that there is no support for those who have a broken BD-Drive or simply do not have a working lector. (I'm really sorry, but I have no technical resources to find out what's wrong and it's an achievement that I have made this in that way [+ laughs])
  • Obviously, this is a full disc-less mode: you can't pretend to insert a real disc with the syscalls simulating another, so you must restart the PS3. It's compatible with the PSX ISOS from Iris Manager.

  • Fixed freeze mounting games in 1.34.08

prepNTFS v1.05 by deank

Download: prepNTFS 1.0 (297 KB) / prepNTFS 1.0 (SELF) (273 KB)

Prepare NTFS drives for webMAN access. prepNTFS reads the /PS3ISO, /PSXISO, /DVDISO and /BDISO folders (PS3 Games, DVD Video and Blu-ray movies) in your NTFS external drive and allows to mount and play your ISOS using webMAN 1.24 and later.

Folders - Content:

  • /PS3ISO - PS3 Games
  • /PSXISO - PS1 Games
  • /DVDISO - DVD Video
  • /BDISO - Blu-ray Video

Update 2013-12-11:

  • prepNTFS is updated to clean the .ntfs* files from the wmtmp folder

To grant NTFS access to webMAN you will have to use prepNTFS. You can either install the prepNTFS.pkg application or launch prepNTFS.self from multiMAN's mmOS. In either case prepNTFS will scan all connected USB drives and will generate data for all PS3ISO/BDISO/DVDISO entries in /dev_hdd0/tmp/wmtmp.

NTFS entries have .ntfs[PS3ISO] / .ntfs[BDISO] / .ntfs[DVDISO] suffixes - 64KB each - this is what webMAN will use to mount the games/videos.

You have to use prepNTFS if you add new content to your NTFS formatted USB HDDs. Do not forget to use [Refresh XML] / [Refresh HTML] to refresh webMAN's data.

Note: Do not launch the prepNTFS.self with NTFS mode (PFS driver) enabled in multiMAN/mmCM.

If you really want to see something naughty, check this:

Binary: webftp_server_webchat.sprx

btw the webchat doesn't need any external component... only ~50 lines of code were added.

Changelog for webMAN MOD 1.34.10 Multi 23 (2015-01-02):

  • Fixed issue with webMAN Games not showing (due change from localhost to
  • Added ability to use a custom IP address on XMB links (defaullt
  • File Manager now can display more files
  • File Manager use now relative links (makes html smaller)
  • Added link to /cpursx.ps3 to search current game on google (url can be customized)
  • mygames.xml now is always generated if it doesn't exists
  • Added webMAN MOD PS3 Manager API v1.0.2 edition by _NzV_ (cobra+multi23+ps3mapi+rebug+webchat)

PS3M API edition requires PRX Loader 1.08U mod by NzV or with Cobra version of PS3M API.

Download: PS3M API Tool Client for PC


  • Copy /dev_hdd0/game/UPDWEBMOD/USRDIR/webftp_server_ps3mapi.sprx to /dev_hdd0/game/PRXLOADER/USRDIR/webftp_server.sprx
  • Load with PRX Loader 1.08U mod by NzV on nonCobra CFW or with Cobra CFW disabled.

For Cobra version of PS3M API:

  • Copy /dev_hdd0/game/UPDWEBMOD/USRDIR/webftp_server_ps3mapi.sprx to /dev_hdd0/webftp_server.sprx
  • Add /dev_hdd0/webftp_server.sprx to /dev_hdd0/boot_plugins.txt (if it is not already added)

Rebug users using PS3MAPI should replace /dev_blind/vsh/module/webftp_server.sprx

From Rudi Rastelli: Short how-to:

1. Copy "webftp_server_webchat.sprx" to root of "dev_hdd0"
2. Add line "/dev_hdd0/webftp_server_webchat.sprx" to "/dev_hdd0/boot_plugins.txt"
3. Reboot PS3
4. In chat click on "guest"-button and enter your name

How can i leave the chat ? Reboot ?


From aldostools: Just leave /chat.ps3

You never are logged in. The service logs only what you post and keeps refreshing the log every 10 seconds. If the log grows too much, it truncates the first 4kb. Simple, efficient and effective
