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...

Awesome update.

But when I click on check for updates on my irisman it says I got the latest one and it isn't this version 3.35 (it's lower).
