December 12, 2013 // 4:04 pm - Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.65 followed by IrisMAN 2.65-2 (Mod) by aldostools with the changes detailed below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.65 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v2.65 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / GIT / IRISMAN.pkg / IRISMAN_src.rar

To quote, roughly translated: What's new in version 2.65:

  • Added supports for CFW 4.50 DEX and 4.53.
  • Added tools to create, extract and patch ISOs (Error 0x80010009) from PC (with source code and can be compiled at least from MinGW and Cygwin).
  • Added the ability to create, copy, delete ISOs (except in EXTx ) and extract ISOs from Iris Manager.
  • Added Error 0x80010009 fix for updates and ISOs (except EXTx) from the "Check Files" option.
  • New rawseciso (source code included in the. rar) with some bugs fixes and improvements against errors (even allows disconnect/reconnect the device), and includes support for HDD0, USB00X through a new mode (see launch_iso_game () in Iris Manager source code) and a mixed mode file/list of sectors for the Build ISO (see launch_iso_build () in Iris Manager source code).
  • In Archive Manager now supports Build ISO in all devices (FAT32/NTFS/EXTx) and detects extensions .mkv, .avi, .mp4, .ogm, .mpg as multimedia video files to launch "Showtime".
  • Now the current game is saved to return to that game during the game refresh and the last game launched to show when connect the device that contains it.
  • Added exception in the Archive Manager to detect if an ISO launched from a "BD ISO" folder is taken as Bluray Video.
  • Fixed several bugs like filenames too long in Archive Manager and added other small details and optimizations (such as now when a device with NTFS/EXTx partitions is detected, the USB icon appears blue during the waiting time before mounting.

Cobra Mode

Cobra mode only activates when Iris Manager is configured in *Payload without Disk* and syscall 8 de cobra in 4.46 is detected. In the mode is not necessary to patch explore_plugin.srpx but could be neccesary to patch libfs.sprx.

Supported Features

  • From NTFS, EXTx, /dev_hdd0, /dev_usb00x. drive:

PS3 games ISOS:

You can find them in folder "/PS3ISO". ICON.PNG you wil see it from the ISO itself but you can use a .PNG (wide) image or .JPG (stretched) with the same name of the ISO like a external caratule. That same caratule (i will have to fix this...) (The ones from Multiman with Titled ID). You could use splitted ISOS (if you need it) with the following extension: name.iso.0, name.iso.1,... name.iso.9 (2048 bytes/sector). ISOS can be inside /PS3ISO.

ISOS from DVD:

You can perform this only from "Archive Manager" (default mode). ISOS could be splited (if you need this) with the following extension: name.iso.0, name.iso.1,... name.iso.9 (2048 bytes/sector)

ISOS from Blu-ray:

Only from "Archive Manager" (Autodected of UDF by default, all in the same folder BDISO). ISOS could be splitted (if you need this) with the following extensions: name.iso.0, name.iso.1,... name.iso.9 (2048 bytes/sector)

  • From /dev_hdd0, /dev_usb00x drive:

PS3 games with scrambled files: Same mode with, Cobra's mount.

PS1 ISOS: Uses Iris manager support.

  • From /dev_hdd0 drive:


CD (without audio tracks and only ISO of 2048 bytes/sector) and DVD (2048 bytes/sector). Not supported USB flashdrives in this mode. ISOS could be inside /PS2ISO folder.

  • From any NTFS and EXTx drive and in Archive Manager:

From ANY device:

PS3 ISOS, BD and DVD from any folder. Using Autodetect.

Dinamic creation of ISOS:

Select one file, push SELECT and use "Build ISO from file" option to go back to XMB with Data DVD, ISO.

Dinamic creation of ISOS, with Showtime launch:

Select and push X over a file extension .avi, mp4 or .mkv (I created a DVD ISO of 32 GB). If Showtime is already installed this will execute automatically, select Bluray drive and done. (Showtime is slow to recognize and then play that file, but then plays faster)

Note about dinamic creation:

The trick is to create a small file in HDD0 with the name "iris_manager.biso" which contains ISO information and then add data sectos from the file.

Note on ISOS: It's VERY IMPORTANT that those files not be FRAGMENTED to avoid problems.

  • Archive Manager:

Has certain capacity to detect ISOS to mount them from any folder (avoid using PS1 ISOS), Creating ISOS dynamically, having only one file (SELECT and "Build ISO from files) or just executing from Showtime with files .avi, .mp4, .mpg, .ogm y .mkv. ISOS must be 2048bytes/sector and have .ISO extension or if it's fragmented in many parts, use extensions like: .iso.0, .iso.1.... .iso.9...

  • Options of ISOS in the GUI:

If you push SELECT we can select an ISO as favourite or unmount if it's NTFS or EXTx.

PS3 favorites are taken as preference to show them/execute them to /dev_hdd0, then ISOS and last /dex_usb00x

We can create, copy, delete and extact ISOS, we can patch them (except in EXTx) via "Checking files" depends disposible options for each game.

  • PSP games: No support.
  • Creating PS3 games ISOS:

From Iris manager, the last new tool *makeps3iso* (included in the .RAR files as PC ps3iso utilities (with src).zip or with Cobra ODE tool. You can do this from scrambled files:

NOTE: Is recommended to use patchps3iso with the latest version of your CFW, then create the ISO in your PC. This will modity PARAM.SFO and SELF/SPRX in case of this you need it.

Some examples:

patchps3iso my_iso.iso 4.46 -> Just for one file.

patchps3iso my_iso.iso.0 4.46 -> for split ISOS

Finally, from aldostools:

New in 2.65-1:

  • Added most (if not all) the features of Iris Manager 2.65, not annoying ads,
  • Display of file sizes in File Manager,
  • Added support for SITE MMQUIT in FTP to quit to XMB using my FTP Client,
  • Cobra plugins are not unloaded unless you hold X when the manager starts.

New in 2.65-2:

  • Fixed label for Build ISO menu.
  • Menu now use for: O = Cancel, X = Accept, /\ = No.
  • Added ability to abort in the “calc_entries” stage of the build ISO process

Thanks for the Update! But i wonder if theres a chance the PS2_DISC-flag gets enabled again?

Was designed for SingStar in v1.41.08 and seemed to work quite well (just tested that on latest rebug)

webMAN MOD 1.42.02

  • Support 4.75 DEX, thx to Alexander to porting offsets patches, i'm to lazy to do it
  • Now control fan is disabled by default on the first boot of webMAN MOD (requested by lot of users)
  • Updated Italian xml file

webMAN MOD 1.42.03

  • Complete support for 4.60 DEX
  • Added new memory footprint profil MAX+ (1280KB)
  • Corrected some offsets patch for 4.75dex
  • Added Osirisx's changes for his plugin (PS3XPAD)
  • Redirect net_host/PKG to app_home to allow install pkg files using the combo for net0/net1
  • BD/DVD regions now also show the country/region (in addition to code)
  • Now XMB is sorted by first 6 letters, instead of first 4 letters.
  • The function that read the registry is now a general purpose function (with small optimizations)
  • Changed some hard coded numbers to defined constants (e.g. SC_COBRA_SYSCALL8, MAX_XMB_ITEMS)
  • Small bug fix in line that says: //net0/net1/net2
  • Other small fixes that I don't remember

I've updated the lasted version of 1.42.03 with 2 major fix with the help of aldostools. I suggest to use the lasted binary files or pkg, available on github.

Thanks aldo for his personal changelog.

webMAN MOD 1.43.01

  • Support 4.76 CEX (thanks Sony, for this biggest fw update...)
  • Control fan system is better than before (more explanation below by aldotools)
  • The game list is now sort by CD# (e.g FF PS1)
  • Local IP with adapter is now displayed (config and popup)
  • Offsets improvement for fix game compatibility
  • Updated Italian & Russian lang files

It supports Rebug 4.75.1. Let me try to explain how it works:

  • webMAN's fan control tries to keep cool CPU and RSX.
  • If one of them reach the target/max temperature (e.g. 66 C), the fan speed will be increased gradually (+2) until the temperature start to decrease.
  • If the temperature is 1 degree or more higher than the target/max temperature, then the fan speed is increased even more faster.
  • When the temperature start to decrease, the fan speed is decreased gradually (-1). This is done that way, because we want to keep the temperature as cool as possible and avoid the "yo-yo" effect.

Deank added additional heuristics to manage some special conditions, but
in simple terms this is the algorithm. So i decrease the fan speed faster under the following conditions:

  • If the temperature is 3 degrees below the target/max temperature, it decreases the fan speed -1. if the fan speed is higher than 66%, it decreases -2
  • If the temperature is 5 degrees below the target/max temperature, it decreases the fan speed -1. if the fan speed is higher than 50%, it decreases -2

webMAN MOD 1.43.02

  • Support 4.76 DEX
  • Added virtual pad support - webpad at (all build)

From aldostools: Thank you OsirisX for your tweaks... I tested the "web pad" feature with my smartphone and with the PC/keyboard and it's working great.

I used the following GUI (updated for webMAN 1.43.02)... anyone can make a custom GUI with all the buttons/analog stick/etc. Movian Remote [Showtime Media Center Remote Controller]

Thanks again! Good job OsirisX. The source code includes the latest changes made by Matsumot0.

P.S. I love how it behaves with the XMB's video player.

TIP: For Movian, use the light theme... The dark theme now doesn't behave properly due the double commands. If you still want to use the dark theme, press F2 to toggle the "web pad".

webMAN MOD 1.43.03

  • Added support for _hold / _release parameters in /pad.ps3 (for faster/better response in virtual pad)
  • webPAD GUI for PC support this in "Game Mode"
  • was updated to also support "Game Mode" using keyboard
  • A new theme GUI:
  • Updated the libraries in "vsh" and "lib" folders (Mysis & 3141card)
  • Fixed a couple of compilation warnings
  • /popup.ps3 (without parameters) now shows the system info popup (select+start)
  • Updated wm icons for XMBM+
  • Updated Russian lang files.

Thanks to aldostools

webMAN MOD 1.43.04 (via

  • Code refactoring main.c has been split into 32 separate modules, grouped by category
  • Added the shutdown.ps3 option to webMAN.xml & webMAN_ES.xml
  • Combo L3+R1+O to restart using VSH method and added L3+R1+X to shutdown using VSH method
  • Updated Russian lang file again
  • Updated German lang file
  • Updated webMAN_XX.xml files
  • New icons has better definitions + some new

/shutdown.ps3 uses the syscall power off (like before).
/shutdown.ps3?vsh now uses the VSH method (performs a standby). Any parameter can be used (e.g. /shutdown.ps3?standby)

/restart.ps3 now uses VSH restart (instead of lpar restart).

/reboot.ps3?vsh does the same as restart.ps3
/reboot.ps3?quick performs lpar restart
/reboot.ps3?soft performs soft restart via syscall
/reboot.ps3 performs hard reboot via syscall

Notice: There is an important difference between VSH shutdown and syscall power off. The syscall turns off the console completely. The VSH leaves the console in standby if Settings > Remote Play Settings > Remote Start is turned On. If the option is Off, the console turns off completely.

webMAN MOD 1.43.05 (via

  • Added http commands: /mkdir.ps3 and /rmdir.ps3 (without parameters they create hdd folders for ISOs)
  • /dev_bdvd/PS3_UPDATE now is redirected when the plugin is loaded (and when a game is mounted) This is intended to prevent an accidental update if a game disc is inserted in the drive
  • XML: Improved sorting of titles that include numbers (e.g. Uncharted 2, Uncharted 3)
  • Fixed bug fixing game folders with many subfolders (+6 levels)
  • Fixed filter games by title (/games.ps3?title and /index.ps3?title)
  • File manager now shows total size of devices in bytes & MB
  • Moved code from main.c to 2 new include modules: combos.h and fancontrol2.h (poll_thread)
  • Added menu selection using keyboard on slider mode (mobile.html)
  • Added syscall 38 to remove_cfw_syscalls() in stealth.h
  • lv2 peek/poke now are the last removals in remove_cfw_syscalls()
  • Fixed icons copy cachefiles.png & filemanager.png for XBMB+ (updater pkg)
  • Updated Italian, French and Slovak lang files
  • Update urls in web panel (New subdomain ( PS3 Remote Controller for webPAD)

webMAN MOD 1.43.06 (via

webMAN MOD 1.43.06 is live:

  • Fix cache issue on PS3 browser with certain http commands (e.g. restart.ps3). Thanks to Dino05.
  • Added delete mode to File Manager (requires JavaScript enabled)
  • Added option to save plugins currently loaded to /boot_plugins.txt and other boot files.
  • Installer now auto-enable stage2.bin if Cobra was disabled.
  • Updated simplified chinese.

Finally, from RabinoVich: Thx for update. But seems 'simple bug' at some languages not fixed. Pls include these files (linked above) to next release.

  • fixed internet-shares option for some languages
  • new russian translation, add some string and more edited, correct mistakes

P.S. Inside PARAM.SFO of 1.42.03 written 1.42.02.

From SNK: New Icon setup created by MiZiO90:

Download: WebMAN MOD 1.43.04 [MxM]


Install WebMan 1.42.03.pkg mod, then install NeW ICON.pkg. The latter will replace all of the classic icons of WebMan with those made by MiZiO90. Compatible with all CFW 4.xx.

Installation of Rebug 4.66.01 and 4.70.01

If WebMan has already enabled you need only install the package NeW ICON.pkg. If you want to install the latest version of mod WebMan you have to turn off the integrated CFW Team rebug from the toolbox, install the updated version, and install the new icons.

All credits go to Matsumot0 for version 1:42:02 and Alexander for the porting of the offset on CFW Dex. Thanks Aldo Vargas for corrections made in version 1:42:03 and MiZiO90 for new icons.

The UP0001-IRISMAN3_47_1kk.pkg files linked HERE should be mirrors for it, even though they are renamed differently.
