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

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.

Because I've been trying to find a way to get PSX games to work on it, and I'm still not sure where I'm supposed to properly store them.

PSXGAMES folder on usb SILENT HILL folder bin.cue or iso + COVER.JPG (1024max).

Go to manager (PSX are showed in the grid) settings done. Much better than MM to run psx games.

Some multi .bin/tracks games should be ensembled and converted to iso to run, ex. RAGE RACER.

Use Monster manager or PLAY manager, are pure iris fork to 4.70 (see EOL). Add libfs to the manager (go to that option in manager menu) to run some ps3 games on 4.70 like COD AW and SNIPER Elite 3. Need nothing more.

It's been awhile since his previous update, but today PlayStation 3 developer Estwald is back with a 4.70 update to PS3 System Manager followed by another revision with details below.

Download: sm_new_up_4.70.rar / sm_new_up_4.70_(2).rar / new_core_v1.3.zip (Mirror) / GIT

To quote, roughly translated: Well, it's done

In git you have new_core changes. Also in the attached (and I do not have access to FTP EOL) where besides the source, attached the sm.self already compiled, with patches to CFW 4.70 (I advise caution: expert someone else try it first).

How does it work ? So basically, when the temperature change, instead of setting the value directly, is reached it is trying to reach the target speed from wherever you are in a series of steps.

Usleep as the loop is 400 ms, that means a step forward every 400 ms, as indeed I have left (there is an internal counter that counts to 5 and at position 1 makes the temperature reading and tries to adjust steps in relation to the tables and no one moves every turn.

If this I want to play, you there. In principle, it is matched up to a maximum of 5 steps, but as a decimal precision is lost, there may be more, of course.

Anyway, I try it to see if you like more. And no, I have not seen. It's just that one day is a day and a forum where people get around a theme and no one program, the thing is nothing less. So there you have a variant [+ laughs]

Update: You can try from the Iris own to make a jump temperatures something big to be enough to return to the lower limit and see how it behaves.

If you want to make the most progressive leap, add number of steps or make adjustment step by step with a lower frequency of 400 ms (adding a counter that makes setting one in two or more cycles) to see what you like best. To me as it is, that's fine.
