To quote, roughly translated: v2.20 Changelog:

  • New payload v8 syscall eliminating the syscall 36 and used instead to 8 redirections. The syscall 8 works in a hidden in applications, thus respecting the other use that gives the syscall 8 in certain firmwares (LV1 Peek)
  • Added multiMAN method for disc-less from / APP_HOME (thanks for commenting DeanK how it works). This increases the compatibility.
  • Added patched explore_plugin.sprx method to launch the games from road / dev_bdvd when selecting / app_home/PS3_GAME. This method connects when “No Controller BDVD” and requires that each CFW patched module (see explore_plugin_notes.txt within patch_tools_libfs_exploreplugin.rar). Grid is a game thus far.
  • Fixed all (fcking) problems and other productions, as authentication based disks using CFW 3.41, 3.55, 4.21 and 4.31 (yes, I’ve been to them all)
  • Now HDD0 mounts are safer, both for the method how it can be accessed only “/ dev_bdvd” in reading.
  • Added ability to restart by pressing TRIANGLE on the main screen
  • Iris Manager now works in two ways, thinking about those who have BDVD operational unit and the voiceless.
  • New homelaunc1 (must be installed because the former will not work)

This is a summary of the disk operating modes: Available options are:

Requires Disc:

  • With controller, disk not only asks “Yes” if no blocking routes / APP_HOME. This may prevent it from interfering with games.
  • No Controller: obviously hard but never require it to “No” will be provided / APP_HOME (some games with trophies bug report, if this option is set to no). For riding HDD0 is protected.

BD Emu:

  • Mount BDVD: connects libfs_patched.sprx if present and mount the device as a unit / dev_bdvd. No controller is the most compatible option, especially with the “Required Disk” to “No”. With controller, disk required (but not cancel / APP_HOME itself)
  • LIBFS: simply connect the module and reroute the game / dev_bdvd and / APP_HOME if applicable. No controller is less compatible than “Mount BDVD”. With controller, disk required (but not cancel / APP_HOME itself)
  • Off: simply redirects the game to / dev_bdvd and / APP_HOME if applicable. It can work with or without disk, depending on the game

START-> Tools (Tools):

  • With BDVD controller: To work with or without disc. In mounting options using USB drives or in the case of a patch HDD0 / dev_ps2disc. When activated, it goes to the XMB (to be activated to reenter)
  • No controller BDVD: HDD1 is mounted in place. When activated, the unit is expelled if I had a disc inside.

NOTE: there should be no disk in this mode. No controller mode works well without reader (mine is unplugged right now) in 4.3 CFW bdemu Miralatijera with flag on). “No parent” when required disk mode, connect seeking explore_plugin.sprx that can be easily prepared by extracting from the flash, txt following notes:

The explore_plugin is used to launch games from /dev_bdvd in disc ausence. The CFW 4.31 Miralatijera includes the flag “bdemu” to work without BDVD controller, but you need also one path to launch the games: this is the path

  • Extract /dev_flash/vsh/module/explore_plugin.sprx using FTP or from PUP
  • Copy to the patch_explore_plugin.bat folder explore_plugin.sprx, scetool (scetool.exe, zlib1.dll and folder “data” with the appropriate key)
  • In the case of CFW 3.41 use patch_explore_plugin_for_3.41.bat because it patch the game category to debug too
  • Run patch_explore_plugin.bat or patch_explore_plugin_for_3.41.bat as the case
  • Rename explore_plugin_patched.sprx as explore_plugin_341.sprx, explore_plugin_355.sprx, explore_plugin_355dex.sprx, explore_plugin_421.sprx, explore_plugin_421dex.sprx, explore_plugin_430.sprx or explore_plugin_431.sprx to correspond with the firmware
  • Repeat: explore_plugin must to correspond with the firmware!!!
  • Copy the explore_plugin to Iris Manager folder (/dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4)
  • Enable BD-Emu options in Iris Manager “Without BDVD Controller” (press START, Tools) to work. With preference, uses “Mount BDVD” option because it moves the game to the root of the device (don't worry, the fake /dev_bdvd device is write protected)
  • Without explore_plugin patched you can not connect / app_home/PS3_GAME with / dev_bdvd and the mode is useles. Working on this

  • Fixed issue creating LV1 / LV2 in File Manager: Dumps will be created on the selected device.

In related PlayStation 3 homebrew news aldostools also released PS3 Get CFW Symbols 1.4 with the changes detailed below.

About: This new tool is for DEVELOPERS only!! It helps to find the memory offsets of the CFW functions (aka symbols). Although the tool cannot find all the symbols, it's able to find up to 80% of them, leaving more time to the developer to focus on other more productive tasks.

This tool helped me and Joonie to port the mamba payload to 3.55, 4.21, 4.30, 4.31, 4.40, 4.41, 4.50. This means that now you can play ISOs on these versions of CFW using IRISMAN and even on other Iris forks.

Changelog:

Version 1.4:

  • Now can find the RTOC offsets thanks to a new method provided to me by Joonie. THANKS to him!!!

Version 1.3:

  • Added a new interactive mode to search an entered symbol and display the found symbol and values in hex viewer format.

Finally, PlayStation 3 developer aldostools made available some updates to WebMAN below, as follows:

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

The webMAN in Both packages include the Habib’s fixes that solve the errors 80010017 and 8001002b when running ISO with updates with disc inside.

They can be loaded on 4.60 using PRX Loader 1.05 (unofficial) or the upcoming 4.60 Habib Cobra. They work also on the existing Cobra and non-Cobra CFW previously supported.

Credits to DeanK who helped me to figure some syscall addresses (he's also the original creator of this masterpiece). Matsumot0 who helped me to fix some bugs that I had in his awesome mod. Joonie, EvilNat & Habib for the symbols for 4.60. Also Orion90 & checcolin for the tests and reports.

The WebMAN 1.29.5U4 now fixes the SELECT+R3 not working and I also changed the combo to disable CTRLFAN from R2+L3+Triangle to R2+L3+SELECT (to prevent a conflict with PSNPatch that also uses R2+L3+Triangle for Safe mode).

If you have webMAN already running:

1. Download this file: deanbg.com/category_game.zip
2. Extract the category_game.xml included in the zip to a folder on the PC
3. Go to the setup page of webMAN on the browser e.g.: [Register or Login to view links]
4. Put a check mark on: Enable /dev_blind (writable /dev_flash) on startup and save the options.
5. Restart the PS3 (Only needed if the option was unchecked!!)
6. Open an FTP Client and access your ps3 at [Register or Login to view links]
7. Browse to /dev_blind/vsh/resource/explore/xmb
8. Upload and replace the category_game.xml with the one extracted on step 2.
9. Reboot. Enjoy!
