April 20, 2014 // 7:00 pm - Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developer Aldo Vargas (aka Aldostools) made available an IrisMAN v3.00 Easter Edition with details below.

Download: IRISMAN.pkg / IRISMAN_src.rar

To quote: 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.

IMPORTANT: If you use webMAN on Cobra CFW, unmount any mounted game before launch IRISMAN.

Changelog 3.00: (Apr 20/2014)


  • Read/write access to NTFS devices from FTP server
  • Support to customize ftp port (default: 21) – Changing the port (e.g. 2121) you can use IRISMAN and webMAN’s ftp servers concurrently.
  • Added SITE RESET command for soft reboot


  • Audio/Videos can be launched and played directly (This feature uses deank’s version of SHOWTIME.SELF)

IrisMAN 3.47.1 Changelog: (via attempts to fix the following glitch:

From Charlie.bucket: freezing after starting any mounted game, forced to hold power button for 30 seconds, after 3 times of freezing/resetting i got caught in a restore database loop and had to re-install ferrox 4.75 v1.00.

  • Updated new MAMBA of _NzV_
  • Updated patches deank with those of M @ tsumoto

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

  • 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:
