April 23, 2013 // 10:04 pm - Not long after their previous revision, PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk (with help from Miralatijera) have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.36P with the changes outlined below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.36P for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v2.36P (Animated Icon) / GIT

Iris Manager v2.36P Changelog, roughly translated:

What's new on Iris Manager 2.36P:

1) Added Persian language to the main menus only under test / Added persian language only in main menu in test phase (NOTE: It is possible it is not good persian language translated: it is released only for test purpose and to Provide a line to work for others person with the source code. Thanks to Reza684 to aid for this support)

  • Language.ini support now = ON REVERSE token for Persian / Arabic languages ​​written left to right to be displayed rgiht to left. English words (ASCII characters) are not order reversed, so if Arabic / Persian phrase is written as "HELLO [fed] [cba]" it is displayed as "[abc] [def] HELLO"
  • The sign "-" is used to do reverse one phrase: TOKEN =-Display this left to right

NOTE: System dialog Correctly do not support the UTF8 charset and add one space before of one Persian / Arabic character in my system. Because this problem and others problems derivated from left to right western writing, Persian support is only partial

2) Added a new function mode "Payload No Disk" to support automatic event CFW VSH other than 4.31CEX and 4.40CEX. Added a new function for "Less Payload Disc" mode to support automatic event from different CFW VSH of 4.31CEX or 4.40CEX.

  • It works as follows: when plugs the first time a USB storage and Iris Manager screen appears announcing the event, the event is recorded with Iris Manager options and then uses that ID to be able to get event automatically. This event is generated if having a USB device crashes to XMB or if you press the "PS" in Iris Manager application.
  • It works as follow: when you plug an USB massive storage from Iris Manager, it show one screen and record the event ID for future use. So, more later, you can mount the fake disc plugin With An USB device or without one, pressing "PS" from Iris Manager button to launch a game before (when it shows XMB, you cause the Necessary event)

NOTE ABOUT IRIS MANAGER AND ME: remember you Iris Manager is open source: you can modify it and start other different project based In this source code (if you are thinking in other different GUI, etc.) or Contribute with languages ​​translation, etc..

For me it is not easy to write in English, but under my point of view, I am donate my work to the community and I am tried to bring all my thoughts and knowledge acquired (working too much) Provide trying to others All These Things in easy form:

If other people want a different application, THEY can do it using existing code without any problem, but Iris Manager is "AS IS" and I don't have obligation to change a comma to Satisfy some users, porque is not my job and I have release the source code (complete source code) and Necessary tools to compile it in github thinking in others developers With Different ideas. Greets.

bigvern1979 inside the RAR of the official Iris Manager, you will find the following archive: patch_tools_libfs_exploreplugin.rar

Follow the instructions found in libfs_notes.txt and explore_plugin_notes.txt

The gamesonic manager already includes these sprx already patched.

If you use Cobra/Mamba, the explore_plugin is not necessary. If you use ISOS or NTFS (that only can play ISOS), the libfs is not necessary either, except for games in JB folder format stored in dev_hdd0.

Following up on the previous update, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.70 followed by v2.70-1 and v2.70-2 and v2.70-3 by aldostools with the changes detailed below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.70 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / irismanager-4-x.rar (Mirror) / GIT / IRISMAN.pkg / IRISMAN.pkg.194.v2.70-1.pkg (Mirror) / IRISMAN.pkg.581.v2.70-2.pkg / IRISMAN_src.rar by aldostools / IRISMAN.pkg.624.v2.70-3.pkg

To quote, roughly translated: What's new in version 2.70:

  • Added 'Mamba' support for CFW 4.46 (non Cobra) and 4.53 (Habib)

'Mamba' is a version of the Cobra payload (stage2) that can be launched from the Iris Manager itself to support ISOs, PS3 games and some of the features of Cobra payload (load plugins internally, it ignores the list) but does not support the PSP and PS2 emulators.

'Mamba' is not exclusive to a possible CFW + Cobra: Cobra detects f there is a Cobra payload loaded and is inhibited in that case. It can also be differentiated by sys8_mamba ( ) (if returned 0x666, is Mamba).

  • Fixed some minor bugs (file sizes shown on Archive Manager and a forgotten BDVD unmounting /mounting).

For Developers

The 'Mamba ' source code adapted with a minimal compiler for PS3 (Everything else, use my PSL1GHT build environment, well known), can be downloaded from this link: mods.elotrolado.net/~hermes/ps3/mamba_v1.0.rar

Please remember to publish the changes and/or additions you make, so that everyone can work from that base.

From aldostools on IrisMAN v2.70-1: Changelog 2.70-1:

  • Added all the changes from Iris Manager 2.70, including the 'Mamba' payload from Iris Manager 2.70 to support ISOs on CFW 4.53 & 4.46 non-cobra and the fixes for PS2 games
  • Added option to game scanning on /host_root and /dev_hdd0/video (for users using m@tsumoto's stealth version of multiMAN)
  • Fixed display of JPG/PNG on File Manager when grid 4x6 or 6x8 is selected.
  • Fixed the auto-mount of NTFS drives on File Manager

Changelog 2.70-2:

  • Changed file icons in File Manager.
  • Fixed icon display for ISOs in grid 4x6 and 6x8.
  • Minor changes in hex editor.
  • Moved blinking FTP icon.

Changelog 2.70-3:

  • Changed icons for PSX isos & PS2 isos
  • Fixed error when the launching mounted PS2 isos on Cobra
  • Added scan of /PSXISO to the game list.
  • Added option to launch ISOs stored in /PSXISO from File Manager
  • Fixed issue with game options menu of PS2 ISOS
  • Removed faulty date from Coverflow screen
