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 2.90 followed by v2.90B alongside an IrisMAN 2.90-1 and 2.90-2 Mod revision from aldostools with the changes outlined below.

Download: Iris Manager v2.90 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / irismanager-4-x_2.90[455support].rar (Mirror - Iris Manager Version 2.90 including Mamba 1.1) by haz367 / irismanager-v2_90_animated.pkg.221.vv2.90.pkg / Iris Manager v2.90B for v4.XX PS3 CFW / GIT / IRISMAN.2.90-1_MOD.pkg / IRISMAN.pkg.110.v2.90-3.pkg / IRISMAN.pkg / IRISMAN_src.rar

To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.90:

  • Added support CFW 4.55 (tested on Habib v1.0) + 'Mamba'

I have tried several things and seems to work well, although it has been a little mess with both offset changed site (It has been a good marathon, carrying the payload between Iris and Mamba)

The new sm.self necessary, you have it here: new_core_v1.2.rar / GIT

The source of 'Mamba' code adapted with minimal compiler for PS3 used to compile (then else, use my build environment PSL1GHT, well known), can be downloaded from this link: mamba_v1.1.rar

Please remember to publicize the changes and / or additions you make, so that everyone can work from that base.

PS: From now on I am again semi-retired Tomorrow I start studying and we'll see how long I can spend on other things ... I will try to follow the thread, but ...

IMPORTANT: After installing the PKG, restart the PS3, if Iris Manager was loaded before.

What's New in version 2.90B:

  • Fixes a small bug in CFW 4.55 to win in disk access permissions.

Changelog 2.90-1:

  • Added the changes from official Iris Manager 2.90: Now IRISMAN should support 4.55 CEX and Mamba.
  • Added option to hide the Showtime / Internet Browser icons (Press Start, select Change GUI Mode and press L1 or R1)
  • Internal changes to the source code: Added variable names to flags.
  • Updated offsets to spoof IDPS on 4.55

Changelog 2.90-2:

  • Changed PKG download folder from /dev_hdd0/game/IRISMAN00/PKG to /dev_hdd0/packages (Update packages now can be installed with Rebug’s Package Manager or XMBM+)
  • The option to hide Showtime / Internet Browser icons is now persistent.
  • Added option to navigate pictures in full screen mode in the File Manager.

Changelog 2.90-3:

  • Added the changes from official Iris Manager 2.90B related to a bug in the CFW 4.55 payload to get permissions to disk access.

Iris Manager always loads the fan control payload when the manager is started and the payload stays running until the next restart.

In IRISMAN, 'disabled' means that the manager will not load the fan control payload. The system will continue using the current fan control method (e.g. SYSCON or webMAN's dynamic fan control it is enabled).

so with the control fan utility payload disable would this make the fan run like when i i didn't have it installed?
