Iris Manager v2.41 Changelog, roughly translated: New: Version 2.41
1) Italian language update (thanks to AlexanderPs3Mod)
2) Added Simplified and Traditional Chinese languages support (thanks Liqianyu)
3) Added syscall 879 emulation (Bd Media ID) for DiscLess Payload
4) Improved discless mode in 3.55, 4.21 and 4.30 CEX CFW. With a USB device, it mounts on exit; without USB device, use the "PS" in Iris Manager to display the disc. If your CFW requires mounting a USB device for disc-less, remember that pressing START (Global Options) and then SELECT display and record the generated Event ID.
5) Added fixed DEX and CFW 4.41 payloads, corresponding to patches from PS3 ITA Fan Control Manager (thanks to Zz_SACRO_zZ , Rancid- o for contributing and greetings to the rest of the PS3ITA Team for initiating a project based in Iris Manager)
6) Also added the method to fix Error 0x80010009 in CFWs sharing the same keys (from 4.21 to 4.41) when a executable is greater than that of CFW. In this case, I made a custom implementation code from ITA PS3 Team:
The games and updates are patched to use "Check Files" option (Test Game) that in my opinion, is the right choice for this
Instead of using fixed offsets to read the version, its taken from the SELF / SPRX header offset to prevent a possible change in position of the data (which would leave the executable unusable) and simplify the routine, which will serve to all executables.
Instead of patching to version 3.41 which can lead to confusion and perhaps create problems in the future, we patching the same version of the detected CFW. This way, it always informs a compatible version with the same keys.
It manages all file errors that may occur.
7) Using Sandungas suggestion, it uses / dev_hdd0/GAMES/covers and / dev_hdd0/GAMEZ/covers as potential places to find cover art to avoid duplication of data between Iris and Multiman. Iris will not look for covers on external drives because the process will be slow and complicated and we can all easily copy (using the File Manager) content to the internal disk.
Media ID on BD
In anticipation of a possible check BD Media ID (Export 0xEF666B52 in liblv2 and syscall 879) has been carried out for inclusion in the payload Disc emulate Less.
To get it you need to be in "With BDVD Controller" (With BDVD Controller) and insert the disk after running Iris Manager. Failure to do so, the syscall return Error 0x80010005 and it will not be possible to obtain the ID. Press SELECT on the disc icon, we see in the options "BD ID: XX XX ..." in blue because it is a Bluray disc and yellow when it comes to a game on the hard drive to recover the information.
My original disk MGS4 seems to not have BD Media ID and returns all data to 0 and error 0x80010006: This will be the default mode of operation of the emulation, then possibly some old games lack it.
When you insert a disc, you create a file in / dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4/config containing the ID and extension. Did. For example, for Kill 00081.did BCES-Zone 2, which is used as temporary store ID.
Later when launching the game dede hard disk (internal or external), or entering their options with SELECT, Disc-Less mode that ID is taken and stored in the file BDMEDIA_ID in your root directory (for example, in my If, on / dev_hdd0/GAMES/Killzone2/BDMEDIA_ID) and stored by the syscall function 7 in the payload 40 to be used from the syscall 879.
In short: if the BD Media ID is 16 bytes to 0, it will return the ID and error 0x80010006. If by syscall 40 keep an ID function 7 average, returned the ID without error.
Thus, if a game is to check if it is running from the original disk using that facility, will give you the correct ID and avoid problems.

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.
