103w ago - Following up on Iris Manager v2.40, this weekend Italian PlayStation 3 developer Rancid-o has shared a fork of the PS3 homebrew application dubbed PS3ITA Manager v1.00 with the new features and changes detailed below.

Download: PS3ITA_Manager_v1.00.pkg / PS3ITA_Manager_v1.00.zip (Source Code)

To quote, roughly translated: We are delighted to announce the first public release of our backup manager: Ps3ita Manager.

Ps3ita Manager was not created from scratch, on the contrary, is a simple fork of Iris Manager, initially for fun and then by the need to include some essential functions (fix for the error 0 80010009) for our cfw (and not only..)

Gradually, the project has caught on, other changes were made to the manager, until the meat to the fire was enough to justify a first release .. It was not created anything revolutionary.. but we think that some additions can be enjoyed by more people..

Changelog v1.0, 12/05/13: Based on Iris Manager 2.40

New Features:

  • Added Payload 4.41 CEX (CFW Rebug 4.41.2 & Rogero 4.41 are now supported).
  • "Control fan" now also supports the CFW 3.55 DEX, 4.21 DEX, 4.30 DEX and 4.41 CEX.
  • Added function that automatically fixed the error 0x80010009 in games and updates.
  • Added Menu "Setup Video" and options "Grid 6x4/4x3". This last one allows you to choose if display 24 or 12 games on one page screen.
  • The manager on first boot detects the language setting in the PS3 and if the language is present in Ps3ita Manager set it as default.
  • Added option "Fix fw version in psn/update games" in the menu "Tools". This fixed the error 0x80010009 in ALL PSN Games and Update installed. Note: The option for obvious reasons is displayed only if you use a cfw from version 4.21 to 4.40.

Problem fixed:

  • Fixed bug in payload 3.55 DEX and 4.21 DEX (wrong offset in the functions lv2_unpatch_storage & lv2_patch_storage).
  • Fixed "bug" in the payload 4.30 DEX (was not present the "patch" to remove the lv2 memory protection). This was causing shutdown of the ps3 if you used the CFW Rebug 4.30.2 with target id set to DEX.

ReadMe: PS3ITA Manager - PS3ITA Manager is a simple fork of Iris Manager..

Author: PS3ita Team (in alphabetical order):

  • Airart (graphics, tester)
  • Kyrt (tester)
  • Rancid-o (code)
  • twingolover (tester)
  • Zz_SACRO_zZ (code, language)

Thanks: Thanks you to all members of PS3ITA forum

Special thanks: We sincerely thank Estwald (Hermes) and D_Skywalk for creating this fantastic manager and having shared source to the world.. Thank you guys!!!

Following up on the previous update, today PlayStation 3 developer aldostools updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.60B-1 followed by some unofficial updates with the changes outlined below.

Download: UP0001-IMANAGER4_00-VER260BMOD000001-A0100-V0100-PE.pkg / IrisManager_2.60B-1_(mod)_src.rar / IRISMAN.pkg / IRISMAN_src.rar / IRISMAN.pkg (v2.60-B4) / IRISMAN.pkg (v2.60-B4) (Mirror) / IRISMAN_src.rar (v2.60-B4) / IRISMAN.pkg (v2.60-B5) / IRISMAN_src.rar (v2.60-B5) / IRISMAN.pkg (v2.60-B6) / IRISMAN_src.rar (v2.60-B6) / IRISMAN.pkg.239.v2.60B-7.pkg

To quote: well, as everyone is creating his own fork... I decided to make my own fork.

It is not intended to be a competition entry nor a replacement of any manager. I made this fork just for FUN (and for educational purposes)... Do not expect any new fancy feature... it is basically the same 2.60B (with all the Cobra stuff added by Estwald) with IMHO a better button layout and a couple of cosmetic changes. For respect to the original dev, I didn't use a different name and just added the term "(mod)".

Holding L2 or R2 when the program starts you can go directly to File Manager. Some of the changes are:

File Manager:

  • Select + Start access the File Manager (like multiMAN)
  • L1 / L2 in File Manager scroll by page
  • Left Dir / Right Dir changes to focus to left/right (top/down) panel (formerly L1/R1)
  • Select + O prompt if you want to exit to XMB from File Manager
  • O on the Game List asks if you want to exit to XMB
  • Triangle is menu (like in XMB)

Game List:

  • Select + O on the Game List asks if you want to reboot the PS3
  • Triangle is menu (like in XMB)
  • O is cancel (like in XMB)
  • L2 + Start switches between coverflow/game list

I was going to keep it for personal use, but I think someone could find it useful and use the changes that I made to improve the Manager.

Update: Ok, I changed the ID to IRISMAN00.... For the moment I "changed" the name to "Iris MANager (mod)". Obviously the "MAN" in uppercase is a direct allusion to multiMAN (most of the changes were made to resemble it). If someone can suggest a better name... I can change it....

PS. the version with the new name has now 3 GUI modes: grid 6x4 from PS3ITA, the original grid 4x3 and the recent coverflow.
PS2. Although the file name still says "IMANAGER4", the content ID is "UP0001-IRISMAN00_00-VER260BMOD000003"

Changelog 2.60B-1:

Holding L2 or R2 when the program starts you can go directly to File Manager. Some of the changes are:

Buttons / Function

File Manager

  • Start + Select: Access the File Manager (like multiMAN)
  • L1 L2: In File Manager scroll by page
  • Left / Right: Changes to focus to left/right (top/down) panel (formerly L1/R1)
  • Select + O: Prompt if you want to exit to XMB from File Manager
  • O: On the Game List asks if you want to exit to XMB
  • Triangle: On the Game List asks if you want to exit to XMB is menu (like in XMB)

Game List

  • Select + O: On the Game List asks if you want to reboot the PS3
  • Triangle: Is menu (like in XMB)
  • O: Is cancel (like in XMB)
  • L2 + Start: Switches between coverflow/game list

Changelog 2.60B-2:

  • Added option to disable the integrated fan control utility (it does not try to load the payload)

Changelog 2.60B-3:

This is an unofficial version of Iris Manager 2.60B. This version includes all the nice Cobra 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, colors, 3 gui modes, etc.).

It also includes the Payloads for 4.41DEX/4.46DEX/4.50DEX and the grid 6x4 from Rancid-O's PS3ITA Manager. The most notable feature is that unlike the official version, it scans GAMES/GAMEZ/GAMES_DUP/GAMES_BAD on the external drives.

  • Now scans for PS3 games in the following folders: /GAMEZ, /GAMES, /GAMES_DUP, /GAMES_BAD (external drive)
  • The Yes/No dialogs can be cancelled with CIRCLE
  • Added payloads for 4.41DEX, 4.46DEX, 4.50DEX from PS3ITA (all the credits to Rancid-o / Zz_SACRO_zZ)
  • In File Manager, the O now acts like multiMAN's mmOS (show file menu) (exit to Game List with Select + Start -> same as multiMAN)
  • Now there is a progress bar when games are being scanned
  • Quicker access to the File Manager with L2 or R2 when the program starts (now it does not scan the game list)
  • Exit from File Manager does not scan the game list unless there was a copy/delete/move activity (use R3 if you need to refresh the list)
  • Now it also has mode 6x4 from PS3ITA for a total of 3 modes (coverflow, 6x4, 4x3). (I had many freeze issues with the mode 8x6, so I didn't add it)
  • Changed the Tilte ID to "IRISMAN00" to avoid conflict with Iris (official version).

Changelog 2.60B-4:

  • Auto preview images in FM (.png, .jpg)
  • Support to .ISO.0 (uppercase) in FM
  • Custom ftp commands (SITE SHUTDOWN, SITE REBOOT)

Changelog 2.60B-5:

  • Added auto-launch of PSX ISO if found in /USRDIR/ps1_iso/ (now you can create your own bootable PSX isos on non-cobra CFW or replace the self+eboot in PS1toPS3's USRDIR folder to run it on CFW 4.46-4.50).
  • Fixed bug: ISOs were listed 4 times
  • Improved mount last game (holding L1 when the program starts)
  • Improved PSX ISO split list: now can be cancelled, use UP/DOWN to select
  • File Manager is more responsive, EBOOT and ISOs are listed in green
  • Fixed freeze accessing Game Option from grid 4x6.

Changelog 2.60B-6:

  • Added GUI mode 8x6 from PS3ITA (now there are 4 GUI modes)
  • Added memory card configuration launching IRISMAN and holding L1/R1 when a PSX ISO exists in USRDIR/ps1_iso/
  • More bug fixes.

Changelog 2.60B-7:

  • Fixed a bug that caused an exit to XMB while changing the settings in the GUI modes 6x4 and 8x6.
  • Added a progress bar to Fix File Permissions.

To quote: Simplicity v2.58 - A Simple Kind of Loader - Brought to you by StephenCapes

Simplicity is a modified version of the well known backup loaded “Iris Manager”. The source version I started with is v2.58 by Estwald. The main reason for this fork was to simplify the GUI and make it look a little more polished. This is my first PS3 Homebrew release so go easy on me and let me know areas I could improve.

Changes from Iris Manager:

  • Background colors have been removed, leaving a simple black.
  • Music has been completely removed.
  • Date, Time, Temp, and Device Space has also been removed.
  • In cover flow mode game sorting by console has been removed.
  • FTP Icon’s color has been changed
  • Other minor GUI changes were made.
  • Navigation controls have been altered (“X” is accept, “O” is back, “Triangle” is game settings, “Square” is not used, “Select” is global settings “, “Start” is not used)
  • The rest stayed the same.

Changes for Simplicity v2.58.1:

  • added back the USB overlay

Other changes will be coming... Thanks you for your support!!

Changes for Simplicity v2.58.3:

  • removed game config*icons*(Direct Boot & Requires Disc) from game selection
  • made adjustments to the grammar throughout...
  • removed unnecessary notifications
  • removed the "Favorites" function
  • changed the font to the default PS3 font
  • added support for DEX versions 4.41, 4.46, and 4.50
  • cleaned up some of the coding and changed version to 2.58.3 (2.58.2 was a beta for DEX support)

Other changes will be coming...

  • Added .png/.jpg small viewer pressing X on these files.

  • Fixed error of recurring copy when copy to the same unit, at a lower level folder.
  • Added libntf_ext latest changes that allow to use functions like fopen() for NTFS/EXTx drives.

Following up on the previous update, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.56 with the changes outlined below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.56 for v4.XX PS3 CFW

To quote, roughly translated: IMPORTANT: After installing the PKG , restart the PS3 , if it was loaded before Iris Manager

What's New in version 2.56:

  • Added support for devices with NTFS (Windows , read / write)) and EXT2/3/4 (Linux , read only) from "Archive Manager" (support to EXT2/3/4 filesystem partitions in external devices (only read access) from "Archive Manager")
  • Added support for BD Emu PS3_GM01 activated (support to "direct multiboot" discs using the disc structure: dev_bdvd/PS3_GM01/ in "BD emu" mode)

NOTE: Remember that writing is experimental support and assume risks when using it: check with "chkdsk " to ensure that no data is lost or corrupted.

With the partitions "ext" to be in read, no problem that can corrupt anything.

1) plug in the device and wait 5 to 10 seconds for it to mount. If not, unplug and re- plug. Multiple devices can be plugged.

2) the partitions are displayed as " ntfs0 :" a " ntfsX "

3) Remember that it is important to mount the device before unplugging: from the root option "Archive Manager" or leave Iris Manager

  • Added support asynchronous copy to speed up file copying in "Archive Manager"
  • Added option in "Archive Manager" (press SELECT) "Get file / folder info " for information on the number and size of files required to copy.
