Improvements

  • Added support for CFW 4.55

PD: Sorry for a simple thread, but it doesn't have too much data.

Update: Fan Control Utility (ISO/No GUI) 2.03 by aldostools

This is an unofficial version of Fan Control Utility by Estwald that auto-quits immediately to XMB after set the fan policy. Hold X for 10 seconds to enable the GUI. The settings will be saved in the internal HDD, if the included PKG is installed and dev_hdd0/game/CTRLFAN00/fan_speed.dat exists.

New in 2.03:

  • Added payload 4.55CEX from Estwald's official Iris Manager 2.90.

Note: The AUTOBOOT.ISO for COBRA 7 auto-quits. There are 2 PKG files: one has no GUI, the other always shows the GUI. If you use 4.46 COBRA 7, you can use the Dynamic Fan Control option in webMAN 1.29

Credits: Thanks to Estwald for the payload for 4.55CEX, PS3L1GHT environment and the open source project. Thanks to HABIB for the payloads for 4.46/4.50/4.53CEX.

Gamesonic Control Fan Utility 2.0 (Italian version)

Changelog:

  • Added 4.55 payload
  • Fixed bug that caused the flameout on cfw 4.46 rebug and 4.53 habib
  • Fixed bugs of missing audio after setting the control fan on cfw 4.50
  • Fully translated into Italian.

Thank you: Estwald, Habib. Guys if help me won't be translated into all languages.

Following up on his previous revisions, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald released PS3 Fan Control Utility v1.6 for CFW CEX 3.41, 3.55, 4.21, 4.30, 4.31 and 4.40 with details below.

Download: Control_Fan_Utility_v1.6.rar / Control Fan Utility v1.6 (RemotePlay).pkg by samson / Control_Fan_v1.6_Silent.pkg by adygt

To quote, roughly translated: I just uploaded version 1.6. Fixes a bug in the comparison of a record and add other things I hope to help solve the problems of crashes (one of the things I do is move the pointer I need to read, you will surely be in the stack, if is where the problem ASHI)

If you have a crash, it is important to tell if it responds to button off or not which game gives you, etc.. Note that the nature of the problems can be diverse and random, so if you do not give me up to the smallest detail ...

Anyway, I exhaust the possibilities: how good of doing this is through a background task, as I can do on CFW 4.40 with the new Core and yet it may interfere like any other application, logically. On the subject of which can lead to small cuts sound or some frame drop point, that if I can not do anything at all (consume his time reading, that drawer)

PD: But you try from this application, I am testing the payload from within Iris Manager, you already have all the support made (I've also enabled manual mode, but watch the values ​​that you put, when I do release, clear ) Regards



From adygt comes a Control Fan Utility v1.6 Silent (linked above) who states the following: Hello guys, I don't know if anyone is interested, but I have just recompiled this great utility (v1.6) from source to make a more silent version for those who find the safety limit in mode 2 (lowest possible speed - 0x5F) a bit too strict and noisy.

What are the changes? I changed the lowest possible speed in mode 2 from 0x5F to 0x4A, everything else remains untouched.

WARNING!!! Since the safety limit was lowered, it is now much more easier to cause the PS3 to overheat and/or get an YLOD! This is intended only for those who think their PS3 can handle a bit more extra heat in exchange for a more silent fan. Use this at your own risk. I am in no way responsible of frying your PS3 or anything else that might happen by using this application.

All credits go to Estwald, many thanks for making this possible! I hope you enjoy

Finally, get ready for an incoming integrated Iris Manager update, as follows:

From Estwald: Other than putting it in the official thread I've updated the System Manager, I have added this thread to have it reference.

Integration with Iris Manager is already done and working: just how I am testing with payload and SM'm delaying because, in case I have to correct some of the payload or the same Iris. If you do not see anything unusual, version 2.40 will be released tomorrow.

Estwald released a new more stable version that is cross-compatible with many cfw's. Seems this is more compatible with older ps3's. Ideal for fatboys, but there are still compatability issues with slims.

There needs to be other CFW versions of this for the rest of us.

I'm also on 4.21.2 REX as for me its the most stable and compatible CFW.

its not written for 4.41... read the headline. The risk of brick with every new firmware is enough for me to play around with. Heat is NOTHING to play around with. I have to pass on this one... And if he does integrate this into Iris, I will have to just compile my own versions with this disabled. Its a neat trick... but so is thePSVibe
