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.

When I asked months ago to have more icons on the screen at the same time (8x4 not 4x3) he said he wanted that and would put it in. Now he releases a new GUI in 2.50 and I was thinking thats what he did. NOPE, he went the opposite way and now there are even less icons on the screen.

Does anyone here know how to edit the source and add a 8x4 instead of 4x3? It takes way too long to scroll down when your looking for a game in the middle of the list (a game starting with M for example) and when you have hundred games on your USB drive it can take ages just to find the game you want to play.

Following up on their previous update, PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.50 with the changes detailed below.

To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.50:

NOTE: From this version, I will be partially retired. Or put in another way: I will not be as active as before (only in case of "extreme" need I would work on it) and I hope that the inclusion of the new GUI other people are encouraged to continue to maintain and improve the program:

I have done everything possible to provide all the tools and materials needed, but now it's time to take a break and do other things and maybe others take over if they want to continue to implement things.

1) Added a separate loader and isolated application itself in principle from the LIBFS patched, but this could open other possibilities.

2) Added a status check of Network and warning messages in case of error, for FTP

3) New GUI format "slide icons" accessible "Global Options" (Global Options) -> "Change Current GUI" (Change Current GUI), with new colors with smooth gradient background.

New Controls:

  • DPAD LEFT / RIGHT: move one position to the left or right
  • L1/R1: Scroll up and jumping a number of positions within the icons
  • DPAD UP: Toggle between favorites / Games
  • DPAD DOWN: Changes to Games, managing change games as follows (shown in the screen below-center):
  • PS3 - PSX: Displays all the games in alphabetical order
  • PS3> PSX: Displays first PS3 games in alphabetical order and then PSX equally (ie, separating the groups and shows first PS3)
  • PSX> PS2: Sample first PSX games in alphabetical order and then the PS3 in the same way (ie, separating the groups and shows first PSX)

The settings are stored: note that it is not the same as pressing L3/R3

Favorites Mode

  • They are still 12 and you can add / remove or exchange options positions from holding down L2 and then TRIANGLE

Information Display

  • Top - Left: Favorite Mode / Games (set current / number of total games)
  • Top - Center: Game Title
  • Top - Right: Devices connected. In Yellow which contains the current game
  • Bottom - Left: In the inset shows the configuration of the games, if you need a BR disc, Direct Boot with an arrow, BD Emu or LIBFS. Below, date / time of the system.
  • Down - Center: management mode icons as described above.
  • Bottom-Right: active FTP Server icon, temperature data, etc.

Reloading Icons

12 remains the maximum although the slider samples from 5 to 7, depending on the width of these (covers in multiMAN format, fit 7). Reload is improved by assigning icons in priority first from hdd0, then from USB and finally from BDVD in background.

The system has been designed considering the speed and agility when you're searching for a game.

Nothing like this happens while using Multiman and using a fan controller program keeps the Cell at 64C and the RSX lower.

I forgot to mention this happens in both the animated and non-animated version.

Yep. Do you have a slim? My slim goes NUTS when I use anything over version 2.36P. But I do have my own version of IRIS compiled without the fan mod. If you want a copy just hit my inbox. I use 2.36P on my other slim... I'm on rebug 4.30.2 on that one as well.

lol It's not overheating, that's the fan control (on iris manager Start -> Fan control & USB wake up).

When the fan control is active (payload) the fan speed is increased and the led blinks yellow sometimes. The temperature should be lower than normal.

If you want to disable it just set it to "SYSCON".
