December 12, 2013 // 3:04 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:

PS2 ISOS:

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: http://www.cobra-ode.com/downloads/Cobra_ODE_GenPS3iso_v2.1.rar

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

Following their previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.95 followed by v2.96, v2.97 and v3.00 with details below.

Download: irismanager-4-x.rar (v2.95) / irismanager-4-x.rar (v2.96) / irismanager-4-x.rar (v2.97) / irismanager-4-x.rar (v3.00) / GIT

To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.95:

Hey there, I allowed myself to add some changes to Iris, things people "neglected", fixes bugs, etc:

New in version 2.95:

  • Fixed Iris ISO tools and PC (now generates MGS V iso correctly)
  • Fix Error 009 now works to firm 4.90 (for games over console firmware)
  • Added support for new firmware Mamba (NZV thanks), and added new firmwares supported LIC.DAT fix for the firmware 4.55 (thanks Alexander, Aldo, Pelayin_5, Faxtron ...)

(Sorry I can not upload the file to the server EOL, but can not access via ftp for quite [+ laughs])

Well, notes on the subject:

First, I continue with the firmware 4.55 (that's why it has fixed the error and fix LIC.DAT 009, I needed). The issue of ISOS, the ruling was that when calculating the space sector could be added with more empty entries ... something that for example, if I create an ISO and extract, copy files, etc, gives no problem but if it gives certain games when copying your data, they input any invalid file or something appears. Anyway, it seems solved.

About support new firmware, in theory it works until 4.76. I say theoretically because obviously I could try being in 4.55. The Mamba support includes firmware that are not supported by Iris Manager in practice, curiously, like the fan control. That opens the possibility that if someone adds those missing firmware, because there is already the work done .

I think that a FW I have not used, I can not test and that probably is obsolete because, well ... it's about what you need to add, as in my case: that at 4.55 and I see that I need a patch and I see you looking, someone added 4.55 (in Irisman specifically version of Alexander).

By the way, returning to Mamba ... I have not reviewed and do not remember things I would have changed by bugs or compatibility: added as it is new, I have not noticed any problem and how it works, let my old binary Mamba but opto by new, since it is the present / future line.

As far does not play anything of scene and do not know where the wind goes, etc, I beg you to apologize if I make some fallito or someone who thinks he should be in the credits, it is not. It has not been easy to find things and it was a surprise to see the work of NZV on github (which Curran [+ laughs])

PS: One comes home for Christmas, well specifically heavy gigs yesterday ... but not in my plans again, just do specific things to notice ... as of now. Being cows, if you touch something, I have time [+ laughs]

PD2: I think it was not necessary to mention it, but all the changes have to source on github.

What's New in version 2.96:

  • Added Controlfan from sm.sprx for Mamba / Cobra (if sm.self not active).

What's New in version 2.97:

  • Added monitor temperature during the game, using monitor.prx (thank WebMan for the libraries used (a deank and others involved sceners))

Use:

In the XMB (press the PS button during gameplay):

  • SELECT + L2: On / Off display temperatures
  • SELECT + TRIANGLE: download monitor.sprx system module

What's New in version 3.00:

NOTE: After installing the PKG is recommended restarting the console, if you've already pre-loaded Iris Manager

  • Sm.sprx and monitor.sprx unified and compatible with sm.self.
  • Added new functions to monitor and "Monitor Settings" screen new Iris Manager (Press START to enter the "Global Options" -> "Tools" -> "Monitor Settings".

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)
