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.

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

Requirements:

  • 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.

Notes:

  • 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.

It works with REX 4.65 and IRISMAN. You need to enable BD-MIRROR.

Finally, in related PS3 homebrew news PlayStation 3 developer Joonie made available a WebMAN 1.31.00 Test updater (linked above) with the changes below, as follows:

Test Version

  • Support: CFW Syscall Disable (R2+Triangle)

Update: From aldostools: WebMAN Mod v1.31.01 (Multi 23) Updater PKG Changelog (2014-11-28):

  • Added 4.66 CEX detection in cobra build
  • Addressed bug displaying icons for split ISOs
  • Added option to only delete history (without clean syscalls)
  • Added buffers optimization for MAX/STANDARD memory footprints when some content is not scanned
  • Games now are mounted before display the web response, to allow to display the cached icon
  • Removed "hybrid" version of webMAN MOD for mamba (it partially solves the issue of webMAN for cobra mounting folder games on mamba)
  • Replaced habib's anti-ODE patches with the deank's patches from webMAN 1.31
  • Other internal changes in the structure of the source code.

And this is a new *test* build of mamba payload. It is for 4.65CEX and 4.66CEX.

It can be tested on IRISMAN or PRX+Mamba Loader... This is the source code of mamba (WIP). It adds the opcode SYSCALL8_OPCODE_MAP_PATHS needed to support the function sys_map_path.

The symbol cellFsUtilNewfs_symbol is currently defined only for 4.65 (and other few versions).
