Iris Manager v2.25 Changelog, roughly translated: New: in version 2.25

  • Added support for installation. PKG over 4GB and from HDD0 (in / dev_hdd0/IMANAGER4/PKG).
  • Added "File Manager / File Manager" (under "Tools / Tools"), with ability to create folders, delete, copy, move from file / folder or by group selection.

Example: copying to a USB device in the x: \ iris \ PKG PKG the fragmented (.666 xx files generated by split4G.exe, for example).
From Iris Manager, go to "Tools" use "Copy from / dev_usb / folder iris Iris" and "Install. PKG" unplugging USB storage devices, to show the / the. PKG / dev_hdd0/IMANAGER4 / PKG. Normally install.

It also has the ability to:

  • mount / unmount "/ dev_rewrite" (device / dev_flash with writing),
  • make dumps of LV1 (CFW that support only LV1 peek / poke) and LV2,
  • hex editor,
  • launch. SELF
  • install PKG

Hold Start for one second to access help and know the function of the various buttons

More details: Upon entering, we find the split screens or windows identical sections, A and B. Both are shown at the top, all devices in the system and to change section we use L1/R1.

With L3/R3, we can rotate quickly to current section list, devices, Iris Manager directory or the current directory of the other section. At the top of the window shows the full path at all times and free space on the drive, so you do not lose the orientation

Of course, clicking on folders or devices we listed the following directories / files, provided in alphabetical order and by some new routines that allow us to quickly handle the character set UTF-8 Japanese font and used it for titles.

The sense of having two windows, is obvious: it is easily to provide a source and a destination to copy / move things. The origin is always the currently selected window, obviously.

The root folder, which displays all devices, is special: there no control of our actions and only allows us to select the device with EQUIS, to work from there

The Circle button is used to select / deselect files or folders groups one by one, while the square select / deselect groups all files / folders in the directory. Some actions like copying files or Movement respond to this selection in a group or if there is none, to the folder or file pointed to by the cursor (always overrides group selection, even if only a selected file)

EQUIS button serves to list the / device or perform actions on selected files, then describe.

With the SELECT (eye, go into any device before, it does not work on the screen devices) to the menu of options. Remember to always refer as the source currently selected window (the one with the letter blinking) and target the other.

  • New Folder: Create new folders

  • Rename: To rename files / folders

  • Copy: Copy files / folders. This action is considered 666 xx fragmented files to unite or if the device is not the hard drive, the files fragment xx large as 666. It makes checking available space before copying (copying routine is different to that used in other tasks so far, by the way) and error checking.

  • Move: This option behaves differently if it is to the same device (in which case moving files / folders directly and quickly) or if they are different devices (in which case it behaves first copied to the destination and then if no errors, deleting content source)

  • Delete: Delete files / folders. If you do not know what you do, the option of upsets XD

  • Mount / Unmount dev_rewrite and / dev_rewrite: Mount the device / dev_flash writable (and can cepillaros / dev_flash comfortable XD)

  • Dump LV2: Dumpea in the current folder the Game OS (with its descriptive name, date, etc.)

  • LV1 Dump: Dumpea LV1 in the current folder. This option only works for CFW> = 4.21 LV1 functions using PEEK and POKE. At 3.41 and 3.55 is more cumbersome and simply do not feel like it has something to do for a small utility ...

  • Exit: exit option. Also it comes with SELECT and TRIANGLE

Well, these are the choices overall. A particular level depends on the type of file.

Pressing EQUIS:

  • About. SELF: the run
  • About. PKG: Install PKG. Now let PKG above 4GB
  • On another file: Hexadecimal Editor

Files. SELF and. PKG can be curioseados with the hex editor, using a trick: before pressing CIRCLE to activate group selection.

Hexadecimal Editor (Is what is holding me by the way )

Capacities:

  • Modify files: The editor is simple, always amending current presentation, running some action to change it, we are asked to save the changes. This action depending on the context, means the loss if the changes are not saved or prevents new action that would cause such changes. We recommend, strongly, to proceed first to create a backup of the file to modify, for obvious reasons.

To modify the files, we have a series of buttons:

  • L1/R1 Decrease / increase in current selected one byte. It has ability to auto repeat
  • Decreases EQUIS nibble (half byte) currently selected
  • Increases CIRCLE nibble (half byte) currently selected
  • SQUARE: Restores the original value of the currently selected byte
  • START: Restores the original value of all bytes of the window

To move, we have the following buttons:

  • LEFT / RIGHT / UP / DOWN to move the cursor over the window. Exceeding the limit address above or below 16 moves in 16 bytes. If the window is changed and the changes are not saved in the option that appears not scrolls. It has auto repeat.
  • L2/R2 to quickly scroll through the file. It has auto repeat and speed is increased exponentially, to keep the buttons pressed.
  • Absolute jump to the address described in the next section.
  • Press SELECT to the menu of options. Here it should be noted that if changes are not saved are lost immediately.

Options:

  • Go to Address: Option absolute jump: it shows a window with a keyboard where enter hexadecimal addresses easily. With LEFT / RIGHT / UP / DOWN we move through the keyboard, with EQUIS enter number with SQUARE remove the digit from the end, with L2/R2 we can move into the number and accept the jump with circle. With SELECT close the window.

  • Find Hex: Search hexadecimal values ​​(down). We can look for from 1 to 8 bytes. By default, it shows 4, but with L1/R1 can reduce or increase the number of bytes to seek. With LEFT / RIGHT / UP / DOWN we move through the keyboard, with EQUIS enter number with L2/R2 we can move into the number and accept the quest CIRCLE. With SELECT close the window. Press L3/R3 can repeat the search backwards and forwards, in hexadecimal editor

  • String Find Search strings (down). Press L3/R3 can repeat the search backwards and forwards, in hexadecimal editor (note: this option is not yet implemented)

  • Exit: Exit

I think with these options is enough for a hex editor "campaign" with which to make small arrangements from within the PS3

Apart from this, now you create a folder inside the folder PKG Iris Manager: from there you can install PKG with the option to "Install. PKG" if we copy one (without being inside another folder, eye) and we have no USB device connected (if we have one, normal thing if we just copy from there, unplugged)

The idea is this: the "Copy from / dev_usb / iris lets you create a folder on the USB device called iris / PKG and fragmented files and supports 666 xx, it can upload files larger than 4GB to be composed as one in HDD0. then when unplugging USB devices, the PKG is visible only have to be moved to where it finally settles in an instant.

In order to see what you think the new options and if anyone can make a summary pitinglish, to go forward job, I appreciate everyone.

PS: As you can see, the options are in English and will not be translated: English is a very basic and many of the options, may have no use for an ordinary user.

To quote: Changelog 3.23+ (Aug 20, 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)

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!
