Iris Manager v2.35 Changelog, roughly translated:

What's new on Iris Manager 2.35

  • Ported all console presentation to support UTF8 instead of ANSI
  • Added improvements to "Archive Manager": ability to edit LV2, RAM, select a piece of code, copy it (max 1MB), paste it on other place(file/memory), use it to find matches (max 512 bytes) or create a new file with that content.
  • Added procedure Write HTAB (thanks to Miralatijera for the assembly code) to make LV2 executable and other stuff [+ laughs]
  • Added Disc-less mode that runs games from a simulated disc in XMB, using BD EMU, patched explore_plugin and patched libfs, has successfully launched all the games I've tried, without addressing /APP_HOME in CFW 4.40 Miralatijera. This mode doesn't work for those who have a broken BD-Drive or don't have a working lector

Requirements:

  • Modules explore_plugin and libfs must be patched.
  • A USB flash drive, memory card or USB storage device connected (recommended method)
  • On Iris Manager, press START to "Global Options", go to "Tools" and select where it says " With/Without BDVD Controller" the "Disc - Less payload" option.
  • Restart Iris Manager and select a game: to have a better compatibility, use BD EMU with patched libfs.sprx or patched explore_plugin.sprx.

Virtual mounting system:

There are three ways to get the disc mounted:

  • On Iris Manager or XMB, insert a USB flash drive, USB storage device, or memory card, and then launch the game.
  • Before to run Iris Manager, insert a USB flash drive, USB storage device or memory card, then run Iris Manager, select a game and the disc will be mounted on XMB automatically.
  • Without a USB device or memory card: Run Iris Manager, select a game and on XMB, run another application, such as "Homelaunc1", that get in and get out quickly. With that, the game will be mounted on XMB.

Notes:

  • This has been tested in CFW 4.40 Miralatijera: in theory, It should work on other CFW, since the code was created considering the portability (ability to locate the code on any place and re-define the necessary calls).
  • Notice again that there is no support for those who have a broken BD-Drive or simply do not have a working lector. (I'm really sorry, but I have no technical resources to find out what's wrong and it's an achievement that I have made this in that way [+ laughs])
  • Obviously, this is a full disc-less mode: you can't pretend to insert a real disc with the syscalls simulating another, so you must restart the PS3. It's compatible with the PSX ISOS from Iris Manager.

Following up on the previous updates, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.90 followed by v2.90B alongside an IrisMAN 2.90-1 and 2.90-2 Mod revision from aldostools with the changes outlined below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror - Iris Manager Version 2.90 including Mamba 1.1) by haz367 / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.90:

  • Added support CFW 4.55 (tested on Habib v1.0) + 'Mamba'

I have tried several things and seems to work well, although it has been a little mess with both offset changed site (It has been a good marathon, carrying the payload between Iris and Mamba)

The new sm.self necessary, you have it here: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

The source of 'Mamba' code adapted with minimal compiler for PS3 used to compile (then else, use my build environment PSL1GHT, well known), can be downloaded from this link: [Register or Login to view links]

Please remember to publicize the changes and / or additions you make, so that everyone can work from that base.

PS: From now on I am again semi-retired Tomorrow I start studying and we'll see how long I can spend on other things ... I will try to follow the thread, but ...

IMPORTANT: After installing the PKG, restart the PS3, if Iris Manager was loaded before.

What's New in version 2.90B:

  • Fixes a small bug in CFW 4.55 to win in disk access permissions.

Changelog 2.90-1:

  • Added the changes from official Iris Manager 2.90: Now IRISMAN should support 4.55 CEX and Mamba.
  • Added option to hide the Showtime / Internet Browser icons (Press Start, select Change GUI Mode and press L1 or R1)
  • Internal changes to the source code: Added variable names to flags.
  • Updated offsets to spoof IDPS on 4.55

Changelog 2.90-2:

  • Changed PKG download folder from /dev_hdd0/game/IRISMAN00/PKG to /dev_hdd0/packages (Update packages now can be installed with Rebug’s Package Manager or XMBM+)
  • The option to hide Showtime / Internet Browser icons is now persistent.
  • Added option to navigate pictures in full screen mode in the File Manager.

Changelog 2.90-3:

  • Added the changes from official Iris Manager 2.90B related to a bug in the CFW 4.55 payload to get permissions to disk access.
