Following up on Hybrid Manager v1.00, today PlayStation 3 developer BillGates returns with Hybrid Manager v1.02 followed by Monster Manager v1.02 by faxtron, which are new Iris Manager forks with details below.

Download: hybrid_manager.pkg

To quote, roughly translated: HYBRID Manager Update 2 (Oct.04.2014)

  • Updated files ENGLISH and SPANISH language.

In HYBRID options User Interface (GUI) is in ENGLISH only because in that part of the original code IRIS does not use language files. I have corrected this and added those lines of translation.

The other languages ​​are included in the measure can someone translate these would be the lines of text to be translated:

From Faxtron (via and and comes Monster Manager which is also a direct port of Iris Manager 2.93 compatible with PS3 CFW 3.41 to 4.75.

Download: MONSTER MANAGER.pkg / MONSTER MANAGER 1.01.pkg (Mirror) / MONSTER MANAGER 1.02.pkg / Monster-Add-Ons_4.75.pkg / MONSTERMR Priority ON_OFF.rar / MONSTERMANAGER-master.7z

Rough translation: Here I leave the upgrade manager Iris fork that I have and leave again in case any of you used as the preferred Hybrid arrives. Iris is still basically in disguise but with support CFW not supported by the original version, including the new 4.70.

This compiled and prabado in my console with Cobra CFW 4.66 but is supposed to work perfect in 4.70 including fan control because you add their corresponding payloads / mamba.

Now I have not tried at 4.70 because I'm not on installing new CFW until you see a cobra CFW 4.70. If anyone is in 4.70 and want a prostitute Iris without there you have it.

All thanks to Estwald as usual we can not forget is your project not mine. Greetings!

Monster Manager 1.02 Monster add-ons for:

  • explore_plugin_475.sprx
  • libfs_patched.sprx
  • ps1_emu_patched2.self
  • ps1_netemu.self

Priority on and off for this manager (linked above).

Thanks to brunolee for the priority on and off tool. This fork is made by me.

v1.01 Changelog:

New on Monster Manager v1.01:

  • Support for all CFWs
  • Support for new CFWs 4.70
  • Support for all CFWs mamba and for new CFWs 4.70
  • Support fan control for all CFWs and for new CFWs 4.70
  • Habib already tested on CFW 4.70 and fixed a bug in CFW 4.70

.SPRX modules patched to 4.70 cfw scoring two modules .sprx inside the main folder of the manager in question (and Irisman monster, and incorporates gamesonic), then restart the manager, these modules give you greater compatibility disc-read JB games.

v1.02 Changelog:

  • Updated support for CFW 4.66 DEX.
  • Updated support for CFW 4.70 DEX.
  • Updated support for CFW 4.75.
  • Put default values Estwald fan control

Iris Manager remains a support CFWs 2.93 with the official does not offer.

Finally, Play Manager is also based on Iris Manager v2.93 official and recompiled by _Slash_ (via and and as a direct port of Iris Manager.

Download: Play Manager.pkg / libfs_explore_plugin.7z / Play Manager v1.04 Fix.pkg / explore475.7z

Rough translation: From what I see I am not the only one tired of seeing other managers based on iris lose the essence of the masterpiece that left us Estwald, so I gave myself the task of adding support for CFW that no current iris.

After several weeks doing tests, I leave my small contribution that baptized him as Play Manager and the new features included are:

  • Added support for DEX CFW 4.46, 4.53 DEX, DEX 4.55, 4.60, 4.65, 4.65 DEX, 4.66, 4.66 and 4.70 DEX.
  • Added support for CFW 3.55 Mamba, DEX 3.55, 4.21, 4.21 DEX, DEX 4.30 4.30, 4.31, 4.40, 4.41, 4.46 DEX, 4.50, 4.50 DEX, 4.53 DEX, DEX 4.55, 4.60, 4.65, 4.65 DEX, 4.66, DEX 4.66 and 4.70.
  • Previous music files were removed to add 3 new songs.
  • The defaults of the fans for a more aggressive were modified.
  • The path to the folder "iris" used to copy files to the folder USB Manager by "play" device was changed.

An example of the last point: If using loose games folders (jailbreak) and copy the patched need for greater compatibility (libfs_patched.sprx and explore_plugin_xxx.sprx) files, only created in the root of your USB device the "play" folder within it copied the files before and later mentioned in the manager (having already connected your USB device on the PS3) enter "Tools" and select the "Copy from / dev_usb / play the Play Manager folder" and began to copy the files to the folder manager.

Assuming you are in the 4.66 CFW files would be as follows:

This process also serves to add wallpapers, within the capeta "play" have to create a new folder called "pictures" and within the funds placed copied. Example:

[Register or Login to view code]

They can also add your favorite song (in case you do not like the songs you add) with this method, just put the song in the "play" folder with the name "music.mod". Example:

[Register or Login to view code]

All this they can do it in one step, thus saving considerable time to copy all the files that you add.

I leave the download links and Play Manager and explore_plugin libfs several files and patched CFW (linked above).

Update: I leave the corrected version of the Manager Play (Play Manager v1.04 Fix, linked above) now no longer gives black screen at startup.

New in Fix Play Manager v1.04:

  • Updated support for CFW 4.75.
  • The choice of profiles for fans is added.

Following up on Iris Manager 2.93 (Unofficial 4.65 CFW Support Update) by BillGates and IRISMAN.pkg (v3.30+) by Aldostools, today PlayStation 3 developer BillGates returns with a new Iris Manager fork dubbed Hybrid Manager v1.00 with details below.

Download: hybrid_manager.pkg / hybrid_manager.pkg (Mirror)

To quote, roughly translated: I personally prefer that this thread is still active and not create another to not that Estwald back and not see that happening, this is the thread of IRIS, here is where I was born and live the true spirit of IRIS and its people, here I started D_SKYWALK, followed Estwald, ALDO and then you all good.

And finally I've never been but I get daring and wonder like crazy and sometimes I get sidetracked but hey at least this time I came out something useful and functional, as aldo said the thing was in COPY / PASTE (and a little beyond that everything copied did not work the same on both sides).

Well there goes the IRIS_2.93 with support for CFW_465 MAMBA, with 2 or 3 slight modifications to my taste but only at the interface level without interfering with the original classic IRIS, is a PKG that installs pre-configured to IRIS DISCLESS user so that the newly-arrived less intrepid and have no problems with the ISO support.

Also I include values ​​FAN threshold temperature a bit different (more aggressive) than those of Estwald but very useful in the area of ​​the CARIBBEAN where I live, if you want to return to the classical values ​​just have to Restore Defaults in the menu CONTROL FAN.

Advice: If the covers are hand JPG MULTIMAN style that copied to "HD0 / game / HYBRIDMAN / covers /" the visual style or add GUI looks better in this mode.

Then this would come to be the LITE version, I have created a FULL version which includes all the covers to MULTIMAN but the resulting PKG is around 100mb and I have bandwidth to upload it, soon I will, I promise.


Hybrid Manager v1.00 by BillGates

Hybrid Manager is another fork of Iris Manager, based on the original version 2.93 with added support for 4.65, pre-configured for Discless and more aggressive settings for the fan controller.

Changes in v1.00:

  • Changed name to HYBRID Manager and title id to HYBRIDMAN
  • Added MAMBA support for CFW 4.65
  • Added 4.65 CFW Support

Changes in v1.01:

  • Added option to switch from the Japanese Standard buttons (button behavior “CIRCLE” mode
  • Added option to disable the screen “Welcome or Splash Screen” (these 2 new options are in the menu to change the GUI)
  • Correction minute details in the user interface BIG_COVERS_FX
  • The “FTP Server” is not pre-configured to start after installation (in previous versions the installer HYBRID autoiniciaba the FTP server, this could lead to nuisance warnings if RED was not (good) set)

Following up on his previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developer Aldo Vargas (aka Aldostools) made available IrisMAN PS3 Backup Game Manager v3.30 / v3.30+ alongside BD Unmount and PS3 File Manager Tools and more with the changes outlined below.

Download: IRISMAN.pkg (v3.30+) / IRISMAN.pkg (v3.30) / IRISMAN.pkg (Mirror) / BDUnmount.pkg / FileManager.pkg / IRISMAN_Discless_Addon.pkg / IRISMAN_Lite.pkg / LastPlay.pkg / PRX Mamba Loader.pkg / IRISMAN (Latest Versions) Folder / GIT / Iris Manager 2.93 (Unofficial 4.65 CFW Support Update) by BillGates / PS3.Tools.Collection.v2.7.38-(02-28-2015)

Changelog 3.30+ (Sep 28/2014)

  • Increased size* of selected icon on Coverflow *Size is configurable via settings.ini. Example: CoverflowSize = 5
  • Added Habib's boot speedup patch on 4.60/4.65 (performance increase is barely noticeable)

Changelog 3.30 (Sep 17/2014)

  • Fixed a bug accessing the some ISO menus when display of PIC1 as background is disabled
  • Added option to load the old anti-ODE patch by habib (like it was before 3.25+)

For this, change habib_patch = 2 to 3 on settings.ini:

0 = disabled
1 = new patch
2 = new patch except 4.65 Habib Cobra
3 = old patch

I created some new tools based on IRISMAN:

BD Unmount

  • It's like BD Reset made by deank. This tool supports all CFW versions currently supported by IRISMAN (3.41, 3.55, 4.21 to 4.65)

File Manager

  • It's a repack of IRISMAN 3.29 Lite Edition that starts directly in the File Manager and returns to XMB, instead of the Game List.

Last Play v1.01

This is an alternative for multiMAN's Last Game based on IRISMAN.

Main features:

  • Based on IRISMAN to reduce the conflicts with payloads for IRISMAN/Iris forks users.
  • Support for all CFW payloads already supported by IRISMAN (including mamba and 4.60/4.65 CEX)
  • Support all media supported by IRISMAN (PS3/PSX/PS2/PSP/etc.)
  • Support both multiMAN** and IRISMAN last played games

**Some features in the LASTPLAY.BIN configuration file are not supported.

Changes in 1.01:

  • Fixed BD-Mirror games. LastPlay was not returning them to their original folder. Therefore they failed to mount.
  • Added mamba payloads to the installer.
  • Read the fan control settings from IRISMAN00

PRX + Mamba Loader v1.01 (similar to PRX Loader)

This tool can be used to load webMAN with PS3 ISO support on non-Cobra CFW.

The tool is based on IRISMAN. It simply loads the CFW payloads & patches, installs the mamba payload in memory and starts the VSH PRX loader with webMAN-MOD.

Edit the included plugins.txt found in /dev_hdd0/game/IRISMAN01/USRDIR to load additional plugins.

Thanks to: Estwald, u$er, Joonie, Habib, deank, Cobra Team


  • Currently load: webMAN 1.30.26
  • Fixed the issue with idps/fan controller on 4.65

Note: More updates to WebMAN are located at the bottom of the article HERE as well.
