February 25, 2014 // 7:32 pm - Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.93 followed by v2.93-1, v2.93-2, v2.93-3, v2.93-4, v2.93-5, v2.93-6, v2.93-7, v2.93-8, v2.93-9, v2.93-10, v2.93-11 and v2.93-12 Mods by aldostools with the changes outlined below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.93 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / iris_manager.pkg.842.v2.93.pkg (Mirror) / irismanager-4-x_animated.pkg.527.v2.93.pkg / GIT / IRISMAN.pkg / IRISMAN_src.rar / Iris Manager 2.93 (Unofficial 4.65 CFW Support Update) by BillGates

To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.93:

  • Updated the ISO tools ( to patch ISO games with required FW version up to 4.60 in patchps3iso
  • By request of Lustar ( GameTDB ) I have introduced a new system to update the covers (covers): Iris Manager now use the User Agent "IrisManager - v2.93" to access that server.
  • In the game updates, the User Agent was changed also to simulate a PC
  • Added support ( for Cobra / Mamba ) for Bluray movies, DVD Video and MKV (using "BluRay Drive" on Showtime).
  • In the "Homebrew" category the homebrews/PSN are listed first and in the new "Films" category (only the movies are listed)

NOTE 1: As a reminder, pressing R3 / L3 you access the various categories.

  • Supports internal (hdd0) and external hard drives in NTFS, EXTx or FAT format.
  • The bluray movies should be in the root folder /BDISO, the DVD movies in /DVDISO (as in multiMAN). Subfolders are allowed and a JPG with the same name as the ISO is supported as cover (e.g. my_film.iso -> my_film.jpg as cover). The display name is taken from the file itself, so it is recommended to edit it if it is too long or non descriptive.
  • The MKV should go in the root folder /MKV. Subfolders are allowed and a JPG with the same name as the ISO is supported as cover (e.g. my_film.mkv -> my_film.jpg as cover). The display name is taken from the file itself, so it is recommended to edit it if it is too long or non descriptive. After selecting a movie, an ISO is created dynamically to associate with the BDVD unit, then Showtime is launched to play it.

NOTE 2: For films the Options menu (accessed with SELECT) is not available.

NOTE 3: We have also made ​​other changes to the code level, such as inclusion in main.h of the tags that define the internal flags for the games / movies. Hope that I have not screwed it up in the translation of the code.

NOTE 4: In principle, the support for /BDISO and /DVDISO was included thinking on those who have a broken the Bluray drive. Since we were doing this, MKV support was added (creating a dynamically ISO) if someone wants to use such films using covers. Showtime can play perfectly these movies with its NTFS support and it also allows you to navigate freely between directories: this option is mainly for geeks.

IrisMAN v2.93-1 Mod Changelog:

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, 15 gui modes, etc.).

It also includes the Payloads for 4.41DEX/4.46DEX/4.50DEX/4.53CEX/4.55CEX from Rancid-O's PS3ITA Manager. The most notable feature is that unlike the official version, it scans GAMES/GAMEZ on the external drives.

Changelog 2.93-1:

  • Added the features from official Iris Manager 2.93
  • Added support for Blu-ray and DVD ISOS and MKV videos on Cobra/Mamba (4.46, 4.53, 4.55)
  • Use separated icons for MKV and DVD ISO
  • Scan /VIDEO and /MOVIES folders.
  • /MKV path can be customized in settings.ini

Side note: The integration of these changes was very hard this time, due Estwald updated a lot of code in 2.93 documenting the internal flags. I had to analyze a lot of code that was already implemented in IRISMAN

Changelog 2.93-2:

  • Fixed a bug reading the path for covers from settings.ini
  • Moved settings.ini to USRDIR (to make it easier to update using a PKG)

Changelog 2.93-3:

Changelog 2.93-6:

  • Fixed the patches of PSID and Console ID (idps) on 4.55.
  • Also fixed the broken feature that allows to auto launch a PS1 game stored in USRDIR/ps1_iso.

Changelog 2.93-7:

  • Fixed a freeze issue when the NTFS device is mounted and the cached list already contained NTFS games.
  • Fixed the display of ICON0 when browsing dev_hdd0/GAMES folder in File Manager
  • Added support to display ICON0 when browsing the /dev_hdd0/home folder in File Manager
  • Added shortcut SELECT+L3 / SELECT+R3 to refresh the game list (L3 / R3 alone were mapped to select the game list mode: Favorite/Homebrew/Films)

Changelog 2.93-8:

  • Added support for .VM1 / .cfg saved in the same folder of the PSX isos stored in /PSXISO and /ps1_iso folders (previously they were using a common file for all isos)
  • Removed the annoying "PSX Options Saved" message when saving a memory card option.
  • More bug fixes for the cached game list.
  • Fixed display of covers for PSXISOs.

Changelog 2.93-9:

  • New background mode that auto-displays the PIC1.PNG of the selected game.
  • The settings.ini now is not replaced when the manager is updated. The default settings are now stored in settings_default.ini
  • Added option to hide the Sort Mode label displayed at the bottom of the Coverflow

In this version, the PIC1.PNG is allowed to be displayed for NTFS (ISO) games. If you experience any freeze issue, change the ShowPIC1 to 2 in settings.ini (e.g ShowPIC1 = 2) Please report back if I have to revert the option to the previous default: ShowPIC1 = 1

Changelog 2.93-10: (Update - MAR/31/14)

  • Added support to display covers from multiMAN's covers_retro folder (PS1/PS2).

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)

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.
