Special thanks to aldostools to his manager and I hope you come back soon on the scene. The boys MiZiO90 , SNK , REIZA72 (Beta Tester).

Without a valid DUMP you can not get IDPS, LV2MOUNTADDR .... For the rest of the lv2kernel.elf it has everything, or almost.

I'm working on porting the 4.75dex (IrisMan Unofficial). If you might be interested, to integrate them into webmanmod in a future release of 475 DREX.

Coming Soon... Full support mamba, 475dex, control fan and much more...

From Joonie: Just in case you want to compare with my port, btw for MAMBA I suggest using the offsets on my COBRA source, I verified them 4 times already unless you want to double check for me

  • Added support payload 4.75dex

  • File Manager now remembers the last used folders

prepNTFS 1.12 Changelog:

This is a new *test build* for prepNTFS 1.12.

  • It now scans ISOs in ext0/ext1/ext2/ext3 devices, in addition to NTFS
  • Now PS3 ISOs that require a higher firmware are auto-fixed. It may take a longer time to scan, but the games that require a higher firmware now should work. Before this update, webMAN was not able to play these games stored on NTFS unless they were fixed using IRISMAN or fixed manually on the PC.
  • /MOVIES, /VIDEO, /PKG and /Packages folders are now scanned and create a fake .ntfs[BDFILE] for any file with extension .pkg, .mp4, .mkv, .avi, .mpg, .flv or .wmv
  • Any file placed in /BDFILE will be cached as .ntfs[BDFILE]. This can be useful to copy files to HDD, install PUP, etc.
  • Other bug fixes.

Please test and report any issue.

Finally, from pinky: an even easier pkg install for that theme:

Download: EP0001-LOSTSPACE_00-LOSTINSPACETMEME.pkg (7.64 MB)
