75w ago - 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 the his previous revision and the last official update, today Italian PlayStation 3 developer Alexander has updated Iris Manager to Iris Manager 2.66U (Unofficial) PS3Mod with the changes below.

Download: IRISMANAGER_UNOF_266U_DISC-LESS_430.pkg (Iris Manager Unofficial v2.66 4.30 Fake Disc) / IRISMANAGER_UNOF_266U_DISCLess_446.pkg (Iris Manager Unofficial v2.66 4.46 Fake Disc)

To quote from cosimo98, roughly translated: Hi guys, today Alexander has released an unofficial Iris Update Manager, the current version is 2.66U.

I tested it personally and it is virtually perfect. In this Update Alex has eliminated the need to patch the file to start the games without the disc, therefore, do not need to do is enable the payload discless and games will work without having to start from the disc.

Another novelty is the fan control utility, time will be set by default on syscon and not of payload. Now I leave you with the words of Alexander.

In order not to confuse our users or those in general, we decided to release our versions updated by Iris Manager, based on original sources Estwald under the symbol "U" at the end. All our versions will have the build number as well. (IrisManager 2.XXU, 3.XXU).
This is to be understood that the version you are downloading is that Unofficial, and then released by the team PS3Mod.

All of our versions will be differentiated by the color of the logo (Blue color with the writing U in the upper right.) With this I apologize also HERMES / Estwald, since I was the first to release that version, but not "invent" something that could serve to distinguish the different versions, although I've always written that my versions were those UNOFFICIAL.

Regards, Alexander.

Iris Manager v2.66U Changelog:

  • Updated languages ​​(Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese) - Thanks to liqianyu-LS.
  • Fixed the problem AUDIO output Dolby Digital 5.1 or 2 channels (and not HDMI) - Thanks to Chameleon for reporting.
  • Fixed error 0x80010009 on CFW's 4.46 Habib 1.13/Rogero 1:00 1.01/FERROX
  • Add Payload 4:41 CFW console DEX
  • Adding Portuguese Language Thanks to Rancid-O for both sources
  • Fixed some sources of Payload 4.46
  • Disc Fake 100% Working (Full Disc mode / USB) There are two versions of Iris 266U, one for 446 and 430. (IRISMANAGER_UNOF_266U_DISCLess_446.pkg & IRISMANAGER_UNOF_266U_DISC-LESS_430.pkg)
  • Updated some portions of the language (to be translated) in: ITALIAN, FRENCH, GALEGO, GERMAN, NORWEGIAN, PERSIAN, SPANISH, PORTUGUESE
  • Changed the install destination from "IMANAGER4" to "IMANGER4U." This will serve to not overwrite the official from non-official PS3Mod. (I hope this installation address becomes a starting point for all other versions Unofficial TEAM).
  • Cleaning sources from unnecessary parts.

Special Thanks BETA TESTERS:

  • Reiza72
  • Luca
  • franci97

I'd like to request a new feature to implement, if possible...

To prevent YLOD and overheating problems it would be very nice, if the implemented Fan Control could change the Fan speeds based not only on the CPU temperature, but on the GPU temperature too.

While playing with graphics heavy games the GPU can overheat very fast, while the CPU still won't be that hot... and since the Fan Control only monitors the CPU temperature it won't increase the Fan speed! So, it would be great, if there would be an option to change the fan speed based on the GPU temps too, also the perfect solution would be, if both could be monitored at the same time, and the Fan speeds could be automatically changed if one of them is too hot.

Following up on Iris Manager 2.65 and PS3ITA Manager v1.30, today PlayStation 3 developer Evilnat has updated the PS3 open-source homebrew application to Iris Manager 2.7 (Unofficial) to support the recently released CFW 4.41 DEX compatible Custom Firmware releases.

Download: EVIPS3-IMANAGER4_00-00PKG0BY0EVILNAT2.pkg / Iris Manager 2.7 by Evilnat (Unofficial) (Mirror) / EVIPS3-IMANAGER4_00-00PKG0BY0EVILNAT2.pkg.938.v2.70.pkg (Mirror #2) / irismanager-4-x-master_LAST.rar (Source Code) / irismanager-4-x-master_LAST.rar (Mirror)

This latest update is intended for PS3 CFW 4.41 DEX Custom Firmware, such as those from Gunner54 and Rancid-o.

To quote, roughly translated:

v2.7 Changes:

  • adding the payload for Custom Firmware 4.41 DEX (Evilnat);
  • adding the payload control fan for Custom Firmware 4.41 DEX

In related PS3 DEX news Hells Guardian shared a method for DEX consoles to Access Services such as Netflix, Hulu and many others without the need to block anything. It is said that this method should only be used for banned bonsoles, as they kick you off their network.. now you have kicked them off your PS3.

Access Services Hulu/Netflix etc without blocking anything!

Read the title folks this is quite handy for the netflix/hulu users out there who have been banned from the PSN. This will cause anything related to the PSN from logging in to creating an account to browsing the store and even the whats new section to simply return a DNS error 80710104. This also Bypasses all game update checks too!!!!

First you must be running a DEX firmware (rebug is my personal choice.) Steps to enable the bypass (this may work on some older CEX firmwares with QA flag but not on 4.30 but should work on all dex firmwares.)

1. go to debug settings and find the setting NP Environment
2. change the NP Environment setting to a blank entry delete whatever is there.
3. reboot your console and enjoy

Thanks for reading and enjoy.

Finally, from atreyu187: Ok this is weird, after doing this and reverting back to CEX since i have dual boot anyhow. Hulu and Crackle still work without PSN. Netflix ask for access to PSN still. And Amazon hasn't needed PSN since the CEX bypass was needed since it was just adjusting a ini file.

Ok I found out why it works. After the activation it allows you to stay signed in, reverting back to my old xregistry files Hulu asked for PSN access. Seems once you get banned like all legit purchases it becomes disabled.

Update: An UPDATED quote from Hells Guardian (updated on July 31st): Access Services Hulu/Netflix etc without blocking anything!

Read the title folks this is quite handy for the netflix/hulu users out there who have been banned from the PSN. This will cause anything related to the PSN from logging in to creating an account to browsing the store and even the whats new section to simply return a DNS error 80710104. This also Bypasses all game update checks too!!!!

1. Must Start on DEX Convert it using the guides for rebug CFW..
2. In rebug toolbox under selector section set the following
Mode: rebug
XMB operation mode: Debug
Debug Menu: DEX
3. Go to debug Settings
4. Find the setting Update Server URL and change to anything (I used www.fckyousony.net)
5. Find the NP environment setting under Debug Settings
6. Change NP environment to a blank/invalid entry
7. Restart
8. Try to sign in to make sure you are blocking PSN access

The Following is optional:

9. Using the rebug toolbox revert back to CEX
10. Follow the on screen instructions to reboot (if it dosent just do so)
11. Try signing in. you should be greated with the same DNS error as when on DEX with an invalid NP.
12. Enjoy your CEX machine with a PSN bypass.

Following up on PS3ITA Manager v1.20, today Italian PlayStation 3 developer Rancid-o has updated his fork of the PS3 homebrew application Iris Manager to PS3ITA Manager v1.30 with the changes outlined below.

Download: PS3ITA_Manager_v1.30.pkg / PS3ITA_Manager_v1.30.zip (Source Code)

Improvements:

  • Possibility also further lower the values ​​of the mode "Payload".

Improvements:

  • Updated language "CHINESE_SIMPLIFIED" and CHINESE_TRADITIONAL. Thanks to "Liqianyu"!

  • A simple transcription error did not work properly it.

Thanks to "Liqianyu" for reporting both problems!!
