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

To quote: Changelog 3.23+ (Aug 20, 2014)

  • Added a new Global BD Mirror option (thanks to 小悠 for the idea)
  • Moved the 18 internal mamba payloads outside of the RELOAD.SELF. It should free some RAM and now the mamba payloads can be added without having to make a new build.

Changelog 3.22 (Aug 19, 2014)

  • Moved the 3 internal songs outside of the RELOAD.SELF. This saves aprox. 425KB of RAM and avoid the black screen issues reported recently on 4.60.
  • Reduced the size of one PNG to save additional 50KB of RAM.
  • Added support for up to 50 external songs in "mod" format.
  • Added support to list prepNTFS on Homebrew list.

What's New in 3.21 (Aug 18, 2014):

  • Fixed a regression from 3.15 that prevented that PS3 ISO could be mounted.

What's New in 3.20 (Aug 17, 2014):

  • Added mamba support for 3.55 DEX and 4.31 CEX (Ported by Joonie)
  • Supported CFW using mamba are: CEX: 3.55/4.21/4.30/4.31/4.40/4.41/4.46/4.50/4.53/4.55/4.60 and DEX: 3.55/4.21/4.41/4.46/4.50/4.53/4.55
  • IRISMAN can be used *with limited functions* even if the CFW syscalls are disabled (e.g. by PSN Patch or webMAN-MOD). (Games cannot be mounted and some other features may not work properly)
  • Added option to mount PSX ISOs with SELECT+X if the CFW supports Cobra or Mamba. (This option uses Cobra method, instead of the direct launch using the PS1 emu)

What's New in 3.19:

  • Added mamba support to 4.21DEX. Ported by Joonie
  • Removed non-working mamba payloads (3.41/3.55DEX) from EBOOT

What's New in 3.18:

  • Added mamba support for 4.53 DEX (Thanks to Joonie)
  • Updated the translation for Chinese Simplified (thanks to 小悠
  • Fixed an awful bug where the PSX ISO was replaced with the config file when the settings were saved

What's New in 3.17:

  • Added support for 4.53 DEX by Joonie.

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

  • Discless Addons now includes a fixed explore_plugin_460.sprx by Orion90
  • Added a smaller Discless Addon package for 4.60 CEX only. (If you already downloaded the Addons Pack install this PKG to fix the corrupted explore_plugin_460.sprx)

What's New in 3.16:

  • Fix to prevent freeze accessing Game Options on PS3 ISOs on non-NTFS devices
  • Disabled a patch in the payload 4.60 that was causing a black screen on 4.60 Habib

What's New in 3.15 (Popcorn Edition):

  • Small update to version 3.15 - Popcorn Edition
  • New icon.
  • The "Scanning games" message is now displayed everytime the game list is refreshed.
  • Fixed a couple of minor regressions.
  • The menus options are now more transparent.
  • Changed the label "Mount BDVD" to "BD Mirror" (to standardize the terms)
  • Updated SHOWTIME.SELF from 4.5.328 to 4.7.95 (mod by deank)

What's New in 3.15:

  • Faster list of games and movies stored on ntfs devices (almost instant vs. +10 seconds in earlier versions)
  • Better support for direct play of movies stored on ntfs/ext (now all audio/video can be played directly, instead of only *mount* MKV or ISO as dev_bdvd)
  • New filter by name (e.g list only all games or movies that start with 'M')
  • Create ISO from File Manager
  • Faster creation of ISOs (removed some unnecessary code)
  • Added new ftp SITE COPY/PASTE to the FTP Server protocol
  • Improved Hex Editor (e.g. select bytes to copy with [ ])
  • And other things that I may have forgotten

BONUS TIP: While testing the movies on NTFS I noticed that some movies played fine while for others Showtime returned an error about invalid content. It was a weird error due, while a movie stored in a folder played fine from IRISMAN, another copy *of the same movie* returned the error. So definitively it was not an encoding bug.

The solution that I found is: make a COPY the "corrupted" movie to another folder with the File Manager and the new copy will start playing fine Then you can delete the one with problems. I hope this tip help some users that prefer watch movies

What's New in 3.14:

  • Fix in File Manager for the "0.00 MB free" space left reported after copy.
  • Fixed incorrect status returned in read_from_registry function.

What's New in 3.13:

  • Updated code with mamba 1.35 released by Joonie (This release adds mamba support for 4.41DEX and fixes some wrong symbols on 4.46DEX)
  • Updated UMOUNT_SYSCAL_OFFSET in payload_460.c with fixed offset found by zar
  • Fixed issue displaying the free space on multiple devices in the File Manager
  • Added option to jump to root pressing SELECT+/\ if the cursor is over

What's New in 3.12:

  • Added display of free disk space for all devices on File Manager.
  • Fixed issue creating LV1 / LV2 in File Manager: Dumps will be created on the selected device.
  • Fixed issue that limited some functions on File Manager by Parental Control.
  • Added French & Spanish translation to some labels on Global menu. (Thanks to littlebalup)

What's New in 3.11:

  • Merged mamba with updates by Joonie for 4.46DEX (Rebug).
  • Added fix ATTRIBUTE for games with PS3_EXTRA.
  • Fixed bug in prxloader.self

What's New in 3.10:

  • Fixed a regression from 3.09 in the BD Emu functions (aka BD Mirror).

What's New in 3.09:

  • Added mamba support for 4.21 CEX, 4.40 CEX, 4.41 CEX. Thanks to Joonie.
  • Added Habib’s fixes for errors 80010017 and 8001002b when running ISO with updates with disc inside.

  • Fixed an issue listing NTFS games only and listing NTFS devices on FTP.

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

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

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] / [Register or Login to view links] (webMAN-MOD 1.30.16)

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!
