40w ago - Following up on his previous release, PlayStation 3 developer Estwald (with help from D_Skywalk) has updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.16 with the changes detailed below.
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:
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.
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

Following up on PS3ITA Manager v1.30, today Italian PlayStation 3 developer Rancid-o updated his fork of the PS3 homebrew application Iris Manager to PS3ITA Manager v1.40 with the changes outlined below.
To quote, roughly translated: Changelog for v1.40 (04/08/13)
Added payload 4.46 DEX.
Control fan” now also supports CFW 4.46 DEX.
Thanks to “Hells Guardian” for lv1 and lv2 dump
Note: the payload has not yet been tested, probably mode "payload diskless" is to be fixed (they serve the event id), as shown in this topic any problems: ps3ita.it/forum/ps3ita- manager-backup-manager-topic-official-dedicated-t4895.html
Following up on the his previous revision and the last official update, today Italian PlayStation 3 developer Alexander has updated Iris Manager to Iris Manager 2.66U (Unofficial) PS3Mod with the changes below.
To quote from cosimo98, roughly translated: Hi guys, today Alexander has released an unofficial Iris Update Manager, the current version is 2.66U.
I tested it personally and it is virtually perfect. In this Update Alex has eliminated the need to patch the file to start the games without the disc, therefore, do not need to do is enable the payload discless and games will work without having to start from the disc.
Another novelty is the fan control utility, time will be set by default on syscon and not of payload. Now I leave you with the words of Alexander.
In order not to confuse our users or those in general, we decided to release our versions updated by Iris Manager, based on original sources Estwald under the symbol "U" at the end. All our versions will have the build number as well. (IrisManager 2.XXU, 3.XXU).
This is to be understood that the version you are downloading is that Unofficial, and then released by the team PS3Mod.
All of our versions will be differentiated by the color of the logo (Blue color with the writing U in the upper right.) With this I apologize also HERMES / Estwald, since I was the first to release that version, but not "invent" something that could serve to distinguish the different versions, although I've always written that my versions were those UNOFFICIAL.
Iris Manager v2.66U Changelog:
Updated languages (Traditional Chinese, and Simplified Chinese) - Thanks to liqianyu-LS.
Fixed the problem AUDIO output Dolby Digital 5.1 or 2 channels (and not HDMI) - Thanks to Chameleon for reporting.
Fixed error 0x80010009 on CFW's 4.46 Habib 1.13/Rogero 1:00 1.01/FERROX
Add Payload 4:41 CFW console DEX
Adding Portuguese Language Thanks to Rancid-O for both sources
Fixed some sources of Payload 4.46
Disc Fake 100% Working (Full Disc mode / USB) There are two versions of Iris 266U, one for 446 and 430. (IRISMANAGER_UNOF_266U_DISCLess_446.pkg & IRISMANAGER_UNOF_266U_DISC-LESS_430.pkg)
Updated some portions of the language (to be translated) in: ITALIAN, FRENCH, GALEGO, GERMAN, NORWEGIAN, PERSIAN, SPANISH, PORTUGUESE
Changed the install destination from "IMANAGER4" to "IMANGER4U." This will serve to not overwrite the official from non-official PS3Mod. (I hope this installation address becomes a starting point for all other versions Unofficial TEAM).
Cleaning sources from unnecessary parts.
I'd like to request a new feature to implement, if possible...
To prevent YLOD and overheating problems it would be very nice, if the implemented Fan Control could change the Fan speeds based not only on the CPU temperature, but on the GPU temperature too.
While playing with graphics heavy games the GPU can overheat very fast, while the CPU still won't be that hot... and since the Fan Control only monitors the CPU temperature it won't increase the Fan speed! So, it would be great, if there would be an option to change the fan speed based on the GPU temps too, also the perfect solution would be, if both could be monitored at the same time, and the Fan speeds could be automatically changed if one of them is too hot.
Following up on their previous official update, PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have now updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.51 with the changes outlined below.

To quote, roughly translated: Changes in v2.51:
Added support for 4.46CFW (from PS3Ita Manager v1.20. Thanks to Rancid-o and company) *Notes: Not tested by myself and i ignore if there are needed additional patches for Rogero 4.46 or if there is some kind of bug. I'm still in 4.40 MiralaTijera... so test it and if there is some problem will see what can be done
Updated languages Chinese simplifyed/traditional (Thanks Liqianyu) and portuguese (from PS3Ita Manager v1.20)
Added parental block to the settings menus (SELECT and START) based in the parental level of the user profile (readed from xRegistry.sys) to avoid kids entering in such setting menues. When the parental control is configured between 1 and 8 included it will be displayed a message when pressing these buttons
