May 14, 2013 // 6:19 pm - Following up on their previous update, PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.41 with the changes below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.41 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v2.41 (Animated Icon) / GIT

Iris Manager v2.41 Changelog, roughly translated: New: Version 2.41

1) Italian language update (thanks to AlexanderPs3Mod)

2) Added Simplified and Traditional Chinese languages support ​​(thanks Liqianyu)

3) Added syscall 879 emulation (Bd Media ID) for DiscLess Payload

4) Improved discless mode in 3.55, 4.21 and 4.30 CEX CFW. With a USB device, it mounts on exit; without USB device, use the "PS" in Iris Manager to display the disc. If your CFW requires mounting a USB device for disc-less, remember that pressing START (Global Options) and then SELECT display and record the generated Event ID.

5) Added fixed DEX and CFW 4.41 payloads, corresponding to patches from PS3 ITA Fan Control Manager (thanks to Zz_SACRO_zZ , Rancid- o for contributing and greetings to the rest of the PS3ITA Team for initiating a project based in Iris Manager)

6) Also added the method to fix Error 0x80010009 in CFWs sharing the same keys (from 4.21 to 4.41) when a executable is greater than that of CFW. In this case, I made a custom implementation code from ITA PS3 Team:

  • The games and updates are patched to use "Check Files" option (Test Game) that in my opinion, is the right choice for this
  • Instead of using fixed offsets to read the version, its taken from the SELF / SPRX header offset to prevent a possible change in position of the data (which would leave the executable unusable) and simplify the routine, which will serve to all executables.
  • Instead of patching to version 3.41 which can lead to confusion and perhaps create problems in the future, we patching the same version of the detected CFW. This way, it always informs a compatible version with the same keys.
  • It manages all file errors that may occur.

7) Using Sandungas suggestion, it uses / dev_hdd0/GAMES/covers and / dev_hdd0/GAMEZ/covers as potential places to find cover art to avoid duplication of data between Iris and Multiman. Iris will not look for covers on external drives because the process will be slow and complicated and we can all easily copy (using the File Manager) content to the internal disk.

Media ID on BD

In anticipation of a possible check BD Media ID (Export 0xEF666B52 in liblv2 and syscall 879) has been carried out for inclusion in the payload Disc emulate Less.

To get it you need to be in "With BDVD Controller" (With BDVD Controller) and insert the disk after running Iris Manager. Failure to do so, the syscall return Error 0x80010005 and it will not be possible to obtain the ID. Press SELECT on the disc icon, we see in the options "BD ID: XX XX ..." in blue because it is a Bluray disc and yellow when it comes to a game on the hard drive to recover the information.

My original disk MGS4 seems to not have BD Media ID and returns all data to 0 and error 0x80010006: This will be the default mode of operation of the emulation, then possibly some old games lack it.

When you insert a disc, you create a file in / dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4/config containing the ID and extension. Did. For example, for Kill 00081.did BCES-Zone 2, which is used as temporary store ID.

Later when launching the game dede hard disk (internal or external), or entering their options with SELECT, Disc-Less mode that ID is taken and stored in the file BDMEDIA_ID in your root directory (for example, in my If, on / dev_hdd0/GAMES/Killzone2/BDMEDIA_ID) and stored by the syscall function 7 in the payload 40 to be used from the syscall 879.

In short: if the BD Media ID is 16 bytes to 0, it will return the ID and error 0x80010006. If by syscall 40 keep an ID function 7 average, returned the ID without error.

Thus, if a game is to check if it is running from the original disk using that facility, will give you the correct ID and avoid problems.

IrisMAN 3.47 Changelog:

IrisMAN 3.47.1 Changelog: (via attempts to fix the following glitch:

From Charlie.bucket: freezing after starting any mounted game, forced to hold power button for 30 seconds, after 3 times of freezing/resetting i got caught in a restore database loop and had to re-install ferrox 4.75 v1.00.

  • Updated new MAMBA of _NzV_
  • Updated patches deank with those of M @ tsumoto

Special thanks to aldostools to his manager and I hope you come back soon on the scene. The boys MiZiO90 , SNK , REIZA72 (Beta Tester).

Without a valid DUMP you can not get IDPS, LV2MOUNTADDR .... For the rest of the lv2kernel.elf it has everything, or almost.

I'm working on porting the 4.75dex (IrisMan Unofficial). If you might be interested, to integrate them into webmanmod in a future release of 475 DREX.

Coming Soon... Full support mamba, 475dex, control fan and much more...

From Joonie: Just in case you want to compare with my port, btw for MAMBA I suggest using the offsets on my COBRA source, I verified them 4 times already unless you want to double check for me

Download: payload_475dex.c

IrisMAN 3.48 Unofficial (4.75 DEX) Changelog:

  • Added support payload 4.75dex

IrisMAN v3.50.3 Changelog:

  • Added support for new cores in RetroArch 1.2.2 Unofficial Beta 1.3
  • Updated mamba with new opcodes for PS3MAPI that allow peek/poke lv1/lv2 through syscall 8 (to keep access to peek/poke while syscalls are disabled) and extended protection of detection of syscall 8 adding a security key that allow access to syscall 8 only by an authorized process when syscalls are partially-disabled.

IrisMAN v3.50.4 Changelog:

  • Fixed new PS3MAPI opcodes for peek/poke LV2. (Not used by IRISMAN)

prepNTFS 1.11 Changelog:

  • File Manager now remembers the last used folders

prepNTFS 1.12 Changelog:

This is a new *test build* for prepNTFS 1.12.

  • It now scans ISOs in ext0/ext1/ext2/ext3 devices, in addition to NTFS
  • Now PS3 ISOs that require a higher firmware are auto-fixed. It may take a longer time to scan, but the games that require a higher firmware now should work. Before this update, webMAN was not able to play these games stored on NTFS unless they were fixed using IRISMAN or fixed manually on the PC.
  • /MOVIES, /VIDEO, /PKG and /Packages folders are now scanned and create a fake .ntfs[BDFILE] for any file with extension .pkg, .mp4, .mkv, .avi, .mpg, .flv or .wmv
  • Any file placed in /BDFILE will be cached as .ntfs[BDFILE]. This can be useful to copy files to HDD, install PUP, etc.
  • Other bug fixes.

Please test and report any issue.

Finally, from pinky: an even easier pkg install for that theme:
