Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.72 followed by v2.72-1, v2.72-2, v2.72-3 and v2.72-4 by aldostools with the changes detailed below.
To quote, roughly translated: IMPORTANT: After installing the PKG, restart the PS3, if Iris Manager was loaded before.
What’s New in version 2.72:
Fixed bugs found in makeps3iso, patchps3iso and extractps3iso tools and their equivalents in Iris Manager.
Fixed bug date
Added support for game updates (Game Update):
You will find it in the game Options. First it will let you choose the updates that it finds (considering if the .PKG is already downloaded in the directory and the current version of the game) and then it will proceed to download them all (in the /PKG directory of Iris, i.e /dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4/PKG). Finally, it will open the Archive Manager in the directory to give you option to install them.
For developers: you needs my http and ssl changes to compile it (github.com/Estwald/PSDK3v2)

i use this manager and think its great no problems at all just a quick question when its mounted game i get something about 4.50 sprx plugin not found may reduce game compatibility how do i get this plugin? many thanks
bigvern1979 inside the RAR of the official Iris Manager, you will find the following archive: patch_tools_libfs_exploreplugin.rar
Follow the instructions found in libfs_notes.txt and explore_plugin_notes.txt
The gamesonic manager already includes these sprx already patched.
If you use Cobra/Mamba, the explore_plugin is not necessary. If you use ISOS or NTFS (that only can play ISOS), the libfs is not necessary either, except for games in JB folder format stored in dev_hdd0.
Iris Manager v2.74 PS3 Backup Game Manager by Estwald Updated
Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.74 with the changes detailed below.
Iris Manager v2.80 PS3 Backup Game Manager by Estwald Updated
Following up on the previous revision, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.80 followed by IrisMAN v2.80-1 and v2.80-2 Mod from aldostools with the changes detailed below.
To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.80:
The ISOs now will take the title name from PARAM.SFO (so far took the file name) and also will show the background image of the game in the Options dialog.
New support for PSX Cobra / Mamba from "Disc-Less Payload" : works with the same versatility as the old, but adding PSX support PSX for NTFS/EXTx units, thanks to the new plugin that allows you to change up to 8 ISOs of PSX ( unplugging / replugging the device NTFS / EXTx in the latter case to change iso)
Changes for PSX in Cobra / Mamba "Disc-Less Payload" mode with respect to the old are:
1) All Games now use the plugin by default. The games stored in /dev_hdd0 and /dev_usb00x can use the old emulation (PSX payload) selecting "old_emu" or "old_netemu".
2) To eject/insert a disc, the changes are as follows (remember that only from the Cobra/Mamba plugin in "Disc-Less Payload" mode):
If the game is in NTFS / EXTx, you must unplug / plug the USB device.
If the game is stored in /dev_hdd0 or /dev_usb00x, it will use the first device found with a FAT partition (device '/dev_usb' ) and if this fails, then it will use the first non-FAT USB device connected (NTFS / EXTx for example). Remember that unpluging the LED will flash.
3) If the ps1_rom.bin is used and L2 button is held down on the pad when the game is launched, it is also possible to run the rom from NTFS / EXTx without a CD to copy/delete the data from the memory card that is using the game (this is useful for handling Internal_MC.VM1). You must exit from the emulator after finishing, as the old PSX payload used.
4) Leaving the PSX emulator it is possible to launch the game from the disc, but in doing so, the video will be set to PAL/NTSC depending on the region of your system, and you must select the memory card from the emulator and keep in mind that if the game does not belong to your region, it will freeze.
Added changes from official Iris Manager 2.80
Added "Download Latest webMAN" under Tools menu (Cobra CFW only)
Increased the font size in File Manager
Added display of the path for the selected game to Options menu
