DemonHades Announces JBM 3.55 PS3 CFW Now in Development


95w ago - This weekend the Spanish PlayStation 3 developers at DemonHades have announced that JBM 3.55 PS3 CFW is now in development, which will offer the best of JFW DH 3.56 MA in a new Custom Firmware.

To quote, roughly translated: Making decisions for the future of JFW-DH

Hello friends first of all like demons to thank you for trusting in JFW356MA as custom of your PS3, as you well know the PS3 scene is going through difficult times because of the dominance of DRM dongles, these dongles are set to 355, for structure and kernel.

As you know many of you in MA you have had problems when running certain applications mainly due to this reason which we have all we can to resolve, but we are aware that this balance in trying to adapt all our MA giving us more work to realization of new and abundant applications for JFW.

We have been thinking about these obstacles in which we double slaughter, we play in making new things and other things that appear in portage other devs submitting to more pressure and therefore more cramped.

As happened a few days with the PSN and spoof, had it not been for that we have been watching Black ubiesemos us as if other custom could, and I as a responsible community dh I can not want it to happen.

Yesterday was published the USERCHEAT, which only works on FW 355 canceled leaving us because we have to be 2 things again, and which work for portearlo takes time and patience ... and that is not profitable.

PUP reinstall either, nor recasar readers etc... making a calculation are more impediments to improvements in the 356.

And I freaking have to be me who has to say this, but in statistical framework and the 356 gives us more problems when it comes to offer diversity in short-term progress.

So the thing is so, it will create the JBM355 with all the best with the 356MA, thegrid, preloader, service packs, plugins, etc. and so and you will not be canceled and which will stay at ease and can focus solely on the accomplishment of tasks for JFW and no more ports.

If the TB, COBRA or other drops will be the first to have the 355 and that does not forgive me dejandos without the possibility of having the same or more.

So the thing is so, we will make a collective downgrade JBM355 cease to provide support to 356MA, waiting for so more people can know our fantastic custom and is much easier to return to another 355 by a pup.

I know this is not going to like some people, but if you read carefully will know the reason for this decision, because it is better to change the direction that never crash and demons

But I want to thank everyone who every day have been helping and giving their PS3, as kike, kiki, maki, Cheko, alvaro and of course the devs that created without rokiski MA, JaiCraB, blipi, and I blackdeath what little they could do but at heart would not be possible to have everything we have in MA, so I want to thank you.

1saludo and look forward to all your support for me and the team that formed the JFW we will continue to bring you many new things cane but this time in the JBM355

Update: Checko, do not be HURRY TO DOWNGRADE BECAUSE THE BEST WE WOULD WAIT FOR THE FIRST VERSION OF JBM 3.55

The time will put everyone on your site ... and while attentive to the site.

Following up on the previous updates, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald has updated the Iris Manager PS3 game backup manager to version 1.49.1 followed by 1.49.2 and v1.49.3 with the changes detailed below.

Download: Iris Manager v1.49.1 / v1.49.2 / v1.49.3 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager 1.49.1 PKG (Animated Icon) by faxtron / Portuguese (BR) Language.ini Translation by LoboGuara

To quote, roughly translated: Well, then here goes: I have included notes (many) so you have any idea what I've played and that: basically control power off by temperature (90 seconds above 79 degrees) and idle time (60 minutes without touching the pad and provided they are not doing file transfers that we can touch morality) is in routine pad.c reading pad

I think it basically means operation: for not being overloaded reading, I do that every 16 tics read the timer and temperature using syscall, do the necessary checks and if the old timer is not zero and go overtime, catapum Chimpun ( without a word))

I've grouped all that well is not lost [+ laughs]. And now the explanation for users:

  • Now to have an hour of downtime in Iris console off
  • As I said, in Iris temperature alarm: 90 seconds without the temperature drops below 80 C in either CPU or RSX and the console is turned off.
  • The addition of the callback Disc allows're not constantly checking whether there is a disc in and it allows the reader to rest.
  • Added support for redirection libfs.sprx: copy by ftp or via usb (usb :/ gets into iris) libfs_patched.sprx, which is generated by patch_libfs.bat (do not forget to put keys in the data folder!) And games like COD4: MW to operate from internal BD-Emu mount
  • In Tools (press START) the "Copy from / dev_usb / Iris to Iris folder" will make life easier to move things to the installation directory of Iris Manager. For example, if you put "covers" of Multiman within the USB folder, you copy your own content or libfs_parched.sprx we talked about. The option uses asynchronous copying to gain speed.

IMPORTANT: This new option may damage the Iris Manager installation if not used with head, for logical reasons.

NOTE: Obviously, there is no option to delete anything that is copied, except by FTP or pulling or uninstalling other programs (which will render the games settings, etc.) Enjoy it!

v1.49.1 Changelog (translation by aldostools):

  • After one hour of inactivity in Iris the console is turned off
  • Temperature alarm in Iris: if temperature remains above 80 C for 90 seconds in either CPU or RSX, the console is turned off.
  • Added support for redirection of libfs.sprx: copy by ftp or via usb (to usb:/iris) the libfs_patched.sprx generated using patch_libfs.bat (don't forget to put the keys file in the data folder!) and games like COD4: MW will play from internal HDD with the BD-Emu mounted.
  • Added a callback for Disc check, that prevents constant polling if the disc is inserted or not, giving a rest to the BR drive reader.
  • In Tools (press START) the option "Copy from / dev_usb / Iris to Iris folder" will make life easier letting to move things to the installation directory of Iris Manager. For example, if you put "covers" of multiMAN or the libfs_parched.sprx we talked about within the USB folder, Iris will copy the content its folder. The option uses asynchronous copying to gain speed.

IMPORTANT: This new option may damage the Iris Manager installation if not used with head, for logical reasons.

v1.49.2 Chagelog (translation by aldostools):

  • Fixed a bug mounting the BD-Emu when certain disk changes occur (for example, inserting certain PSX games, eject then put a BR disc).
  • Removed patched libfs load when BD-Emu is used from external disc (COD black screen 4: MW similar to that which occurred from internal)
  • Added warning messages in shutdown functions (in one case can be cancelled, in the other is non-cancelable for obvious reasons: if there is overheating, we must be forced to turn off the PS3)

v1.49.3 Changelog (via elotrolado.net/hilo_3-55-4-30-iris-manager-v1-38_1842936_s340#p1731400119):

  • If you load a game for PS3 (not PSN, a disc game), some data are stored in a file (lastgame). Holding down L1 on startup, when Iris Manager is loading again, it will load automatically the last game, unless their presence is not detected or error.
  • If in the root directory of the game (where usually the PS3_DISC_SFB is found), you put a file name containing ps2disc.txt with the destination path (eg. /dev_usb000/dataps2 or /dev_hdd/GAME/dataps2), that folder is mounted as /dev_ps2disc.

This feature can be useful for games like Sing Star, that can read tracks from PS2 discs.

Glad to see an update from these guys. Been using Iris Manager for a while now. Not too shabby How's MultiMan different? Sorry for asking, I'm new to all of this

Been using Game Backup System to backup my games, proven to be quite a killer combination with Iris Manager

MultiMan works perfectly on all of Rebug's CFWs. I don't know how you guys are having perfomance issues with it, the latest upgrades were there to improve that, it's faster than ever.
