November 18, 2013 // 6:07 pm - Following up on the previous update, today PlayStation 3 developer aldostools updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.60B-1 followed by some unofficial updates with the changes outlined below.

Download: UP0001-IMANAGER4_00-VER260BMOD000001-A0100-V0100-PE.pkg / IrisManager_2.60B-1_(mod)_src.rar / IRISMAN.pkg / IRISMAN_src.rar / IRISMAN.pkg (v2.60-B4) / IRISMAN.pkg (v2.60-B4) (Mirror) / IRISMAN_src.rar (v2.60-B4) / IRISMAN.pkg (v2.60-B5) / IRISMAN_src.rar (v2.60-B5) / IRISMAN.pkg (v2.60-B6) / IRISMAN_src.rar (v2.60-B6) / IRISMAN.pkg.239.v2.60B-7.pkg

To quote: well, as everyone is creating his own fork... I decided to make my own fork.

It is not intended to be a competition entry nor a replacement of any manager. I made this fork just for FUN (and for educational purposes)... Do not expect any new fancy feature... it is basically the same 2.60B (with all the Cobra stuff added by Estwald) with IMHO a better button layout and a couple of cosmetic changes. For respect to the original dev, I didn't use a different name and just added the term "(mod)".

Holding L2 or R2 when the program starts you can go directly to File Manager. Some of the changes are:

File Manager:

  • Select + Start access the File Manager (like multiMAN)
  • L1 / L2 in File Manager scroll by page
  • Left Dir / Right Dir changes to focus to left/right (top/down) panel (formerly L1/R1)
  • Select + O prompt if you want to exit to XMB from File Manager
  • O on the Game List asks if you want to exit to XMB
  • Triangle is menu (like in XMB)

Game List:

  • Select + O on the Game List asks if you want to reboot the PS3
  • Triangle is menu (like in XMB)
  • O is cancel (like in XMB)
  • L2 + Start switches between coverflow/game list

I was going to keep it for personal use, but I think someone could find it useful and use the changes that I made to improve the Manager.

Update: Ok, I changed the ID to IRISMAN00.... For the moment I "changed" the name to "Iris MANager (mod)". Obviously the "MAN" in uppercase is a direct allusion to multiMAN (most of the changes were made to resemble it). If someone can suggest a better name... I can change it....

PS. the version with the new name has now 3 GUI modes: grid 6x4 from PS3ITA, the original grid 4x3 and the recent coverflow.
PS2. Although the file name still says "IMANAGER4", the content ID is "UP0001-IRISMAN00_00-VER260BMOD000003"

Changelog 2.60B-1:

Holding L2 or R2 when the program starts you can go directly to File Manager. Some of the changes are:

Buttons / Function

File Manager

  • Start + Select: Access the File Manager (like multiMAN)
  • L1 L2: In File Manager scroll by page
  • Left / Right: Changes to focus to left/right (top/down) panel (formerly L1/R1)
  • Select + O: Prompt if you want to exit to XMB from File Manager
  • O: On the Game List asks if you want to exit to XMB
  • Triangle: On the Game List asks if you want to exit to XMB is menu (like in XMB)

Game List

  • Select + O: On the Game List asks if you want to reboot the PS3
  • Triangle: Is menu (like in XMB)
  • O: Is cancel (like in XMB)
  • L2 + Start: Switches between coverflow/game list

Changelog 2.60B-2:

  • Added option to disable the integrated fan control utility (it does not try to load the payload)

Changelog 2.60B-3:

This is an unofficial version of Iris Manager 2.60B. This version includes all the nice Cobra features added by Estwald. The changes that I made are mainly related to the user interface (buttons layout are more XMB-like, quick access to File Manager, progress bar when game list is scanned, colors, 3 gui modes, etc.).

It also includes the Payloads for 4.41DEX/4.46DEX/4.50DEX and the grid 6x4 from Rancid-O's PS3ITA Manager. The most notable feature is that unlike the official version, it scans GAMES/GAMEZ/GAMES_DUP/GAMES_BAD on the external drives.

  • Now scans for PS3 games in the following folders: /GAMEZ, /GAMES, /GAMES_DUP, /GAMES_BAD (external drive)
  • The Yes/No dialogs can be cancelled with CIRCLE
  • Added payloads for 4.41DEX, 4.46DEX, 4.50DEX from PS3ITA (all the credits to Rancid-o / Zz_SACRO_zZ)
  • In File Manager, the O now acts like multiMAN's mmOS (show file menu) (exit to Game List with Select + Start -> same as multiMAN)
  • Now there is a progress bar when games are being scanned
  • Quicker access to the File Manager with L2 or R2 when the program starts (now it does not scan the game list)
  • Exit from File Manager does not scan the game list unless there was a copy/delete/move activity (use R3 if you need to refresh the list)
  • Now it also has mode 6x4 from PS3ITA for a total of 3 modes (coverflow, 6x4, 4x3). (I had many freeze issues with the mode 8x6, so I didn't add it)
  • Changed the Tilte ID to "IRISMAN00" to avoid conflict with Iris (official version).

Changelog 2.60B-4:

  • Auto preview images in FM (.png, .jpg)
  • Support to .ISO.0 (uppercase) in FM
  • Custom ftp commands (SITE SHUTDOWN, SITE REBOOT)

Changelog 2.60B-5:

  • Added auto-launch of PSX ISO if found in /USRDIR/ps1_iso/ (now you can create your own bootable PSX isos on non-cobra CFW or replace the self+eboot in PS1toPS3's USRDIR folder to run it on CFW 4.46-4.50).
  • Fixed bug: ISOs were listed 4 times
  • Improved mount last game (holding L1 when the program starts)
  • Improved PSX ISO split list: now can be cancelled, use UP/DOWN to select
  • File Manager is more responsive, EBOOT and ISOs are listed in green
  • Fixed freeze accessing Game Option from grid 4x6.

Changelog 2.60B-6:

  • Added GUI mode 8x6 from PS3ITA (now there are 4 GUI modes)
  • Added memory card configuration launching IRISMAN and holding L1/R1 when a PSX ISO exists in USRDIR/ps1_iso/
  • More bug fixes.

Changelog 2.60B-7:

  • Fixed a bug that caused an exit to XMB while changing the settings in the GUI modes 6x4 and 8x6.
  • Added a progress bar to Fix File Permissions.

Following up on his previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developer Aldo Vargas (aka Aldostools) made available IrisMAN PS3 Backup Game Manager v3.31 alongside Last Play v1.01 and WebMAN MOD v1.30.33, WebMAN MOD 1.30.34, WebMAN MOD 1.30.35 Updater (with M@tsumoto) and WebMAN-MOD 1.31.00 Test Build with the changes outlined below.

Download: IRISMAN.v3.31.pkg / IRISMAN.pkg (Mirror) / LastPlay.v1.01.pkg / webMAN_MOD_1.30.33_Updater.pkg / webMAN_MOD_1.30.34_Updater.pkg (Test Version) / webMAN_MOD_1.30.34_Updater.pkg / webMAN_MOD_1.30.35_Updater.pkg / webMAN_MOD_1.30.35_Updater.pkg (Test Version) / main.c (Source Code) / webMAN_MOD_1.31.00.rar / updater.rar / IrisMAN GIT / WebMAN Mod GIT / IrisMAN Tools (Includes BDUnmount.pkg, FileManager.pkg, IRISMAN.pkg, IRISMAN_Discless_Addon.pkg, IRISMAN_Lite.pkg, LastPlay.pkg, PRX Mamba Loader.pkg) / Aldostools GIT / WebMAN 1.31 by deank

Changelogs: IrisMAN v3.31

IRISMAN 3.31 has been updated with support for 4.65 DEX (4.65 rebug rex with dex kernel or 4.65 rebug d-rex) - Thanks to Joonie.

The source code of IRISMAN 3.31 and webMAN-MOD 1.30.33 are available on github (linked above).

This is an "unofficial" version of Iris Manager 2.93 by Estwald/D-Skywalk. This version includes all the new Cobra/Mamba payload and ISO features added by Estwald.

The changes that I made are mainly related to the user interface (buttons layout are more XMB-like, quick access to File Manager, progress bar when game list is scanned or file permissions are applied, colors, 16 gui modes, etc.).

It also includes the Payloads from Rancid-O's PS3ITA Manager, Joonie and Habib. The most notable feature is that unlike the official version, it scans GAMES/GAMEZ on the external drives.

New mamba payloads for 3.55 / 3.55D / 4.21 / 4.21D /4.30 / 4.31 / 4.40 / 4.41 / 4.41D / 4.46 / 4.46D /4.50 / 4.50D / 4.53 / 4.53D / 4.55 / 4.55D / 4.60 / 4.65 / 4.65D. Now PS3 ISOs are playable on all these CFW without need of Cobra support.

IMPORTANT: If you use webMAN on Cobra CFW, unmount any mounted game before launch IRISMAN.

Changelog 3.31 (Oct 30/2014)


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

WebMAN-MOD v1.30.33

WebMAN MOD is a M@tsumot0's modified version of webMAN 1.30 plugin developed by deank.

This fork provides additional features like user-friendly smart installer/updater for Cobra and NonCobra, IDPS/PSID spoof, support for 19 languages using external files, disable cfw syscalls, remote peek/poke/find in LV1/LV2, remote backup to HDD and from HDD to USB, among other improvements.

Changelog for WebMAN MOD 1.30.33:


Changelog for WebMAN MOD 1.30.34:

  • Added Danish language (Thanks to Assassins at psx-scene)
  • Reverted the code for reduced memory usage introduced in 1.30.30 (it seems it was causing issues) fb.xml is now always created (even if content scanning is disabled at start up)
  • Small speed up improvement generating mygame.xml when some usb devices are not selected for content scanning.
  • The updater should be able to update the rebug's internal webMAN on dev_flash (untested)
  • Fixed net games not being listed on XML if one of the usb devices was unchecked.

Changelog for WebMAN MOD 1.30.35 Multi 21:

  • Fixed a bug in copyfiles function (this prevented the cache of the ICON0/PARAM.SFO for iso stored on ntfs and nethost)
  • Added habib's antiODE patches to Cobra version of webMAN on cfw 4.6x. (These patches should reduce the blackscreens for games stored on external hdd. Thanks to Joonie for the workaround)
  • Don't show bad IDPS/PSID when syscalls are disabled
  • Load last game is now off by default

It seems anti-ODE on 4.65 is causing issues with some games on external hdd. Please try with webMAN-MOD 1.30.35 and report back your results... This test build applies the habib's anti-ODE patches on the Cobra's version of webMAN. Also includes some old patches suggested by Joonie.

The test results are mixed, but in general it seems this build works better than 1.30.34.




PS. It also fixes a bug that prevented to cache the icons/param.sfo from the ISOs when the MM's covers are not used.

From kokotonix: 2 quick notes that may interest:

1. I'm using rebug 4.65.1 in system mode Rebug. When using webman updater pkg, it updates webftp-server.sprx in /dev_hdd0/ but not in /dev_flash/vsh/module (for Rebug) I've tried this with dev_blind mounted and not-mounted.

2. A strange issue: I'm using an external WD ESSENTIALS 1TB hdd fat32 formatted. Webman mod detects well the contents. But if I disable the webman startup message, it fails detecting the games in The external disk.

Changelog for WebMAN MOD 1.30.35 (Test Version):

From littlebalup: So, if i understand well (not sure at all), the problem is comming from the presence of the boot_plugin.txt in /dev_hdd0.

[Register or Login to view code]

From aldostools: Yes, in part the issue is due that code... and due the a bug in Cobra stage2 of rebug 4.65.1 that allows to load webMAN twice (from /dev_flash and from /boot_plugins.txt).

The reason of that check is because I didn't want to touch the /dev_flash if the user is already loading plugins via /boot_plugins.txt.

In a next release I'll make it delete webftp_server.sprx from hdd0 if the file was updated on dev_flash.

This is a test version of the webMAN updater with the suggested changes implemented. Here is the source code (if someone need to check the changes).

Changelog for WebMAN MOD 1.31.00 (Test Version):

  • Added support to scan isos stored on subfolders on PS3ISO/PS2ISO/PSXISO/BDISO/DVDISO (e.g. /PS3ISO/My Game/My Game.iso)
  • Added support to scan multiple isos grouped by single letter subfolder (e.g. /PS3ISO/M/My Game.iso)
  • Fixed cache of ICON0.PNG when game is mounted.
  • Prevent double loading of webMAN on rebug (updater deletes /dev_hdd0/webftp_server.sprx if webMAN is installed on /dev_flash)
  • Added Czech (cestina) & Slovak (slovencina) translations (Thanks by ps3haxcz.com)
  • New modified version of prepNTFS with subfolders support on PS3ISO/PSXISO/BDISO/DVDISO

Please test and report any issue. If everything is working fine I will release it officially.

Note: The source code is also included in the rar. Thank you for the bug report. Could you check this code and tell me if you find something wrong? I can't find the issue (unless you have the sprx with a different name). Anyway I made a little update (source code included), if you want to test it again.

Thx for your answer ,

So to see the games on iris manager when i open it , i need to installing them to my internal hdd ?? i was thinking i can run the games through external HDD, and i can but when i make search for games only appears /dev Games , /dev Gamez from my internal , this CFW have support to NTFS and run only iso that's what i think , i dont know if i'm wrong....

Hi,

you write that your external HDD is NTFS thats wrong, you must format it to Fat32. The Gamez folder ist correct, but it can be named too Games.

Same Games have Bigfiles over 4GB, some Games doesn't works so. It must be install internal.

The Games must be copy the files directory direct to the harddrive and not ISO, but this can work if you use a Cobra FW.

Than you must creat a directory called PS3ISO, but her you can not patch any file if its want. (Cheating and so)

NTFS can be worked, but you must install a NTFS acress tool or you can use Multiman to enable this funktion. This is only to copy files from externel to internal or a external Fat32 HDD.

Hope can help

It sounds like you are experiencing ylod. Your ps3 will need to be reflowed and thermal paste changed (always use arctic silver 5).
