To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.45:

1) Added German as a language (thanks toto67)

2) New update Simplified and Traditional Chinese (thanks Liqianyu)

3) Fixed a bug that disallowed games bigfile external USB disk to internal (in cache). We have included a small correction for those games that do not have more than one cached bigfile. Also added warning if it comes to launching the game with BD Emu ON (exite cache inconsistency between games and BD Emu)

4) Added a number of improvements to the FTP server: now warns if you exit the application (attention, if it comes with PS button will not tell) and FTP is conducting a delete function, reading, writing... covering up to 10 seconds from the operation.

It is also equipped with some error messages for that function fails if the network is not started or misconfigured occasional change.

5) Added a new thread manager to perform background tasks, such as icons recharge, now is not done at once, if not staggered. With this, the program gains agility when changing pages.

6) Some users have notified me that REX Rebug 4.21.2 CFW does not work when you press the PS event, so I've gone back to the old method for this firmware.

To mount with Disc-Less need without plugging a device to force an event right in the process that should receive. For that it is necessary to know the Event ID before hand but users are reporting to me and that I do not know the ID or using one that others do not work (in 4.21.2 using an ID that I found)

For this reason it would be desirable to send me the Event ID generated when you plug a USB device for each firmware to know them.

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.

To quote, roughly translated: v2.20 Changelog:

  • 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:

Requires Disc:

  • 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.

BD Emu:

  • 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

Is this version of Iris Manager able to auto-patch 4.31 games to make them work on 4.30 like MultiMan can do ?

If not.. is this going to be added to Iris soon?

I use MMCM since I'm on dongle 4.30 CFW but I like to switch to Rogero 4.30 to play the 4.31 games but so far it seems only MM 4.20 can patch those games and having to keep uninstalling MMCM / installing MM every time I switch CFW is becoming annoying.. so if Iris could patch the games like MM does then I wouldn't have to worry about that I could just have Iris / MMCM side-by-side without any complaints.

Cheers

Anybody that is using Iris can answer this question please?

To quote, roughly translated: v2.16 Changelog:

  • NOTE: This is an evaluation version: if it does not work, let me know and tell me which version of CFW you are using and at what point is failing
  • New payload v8 that deletes syscall 36 and use syscall 8 in its place for the redirections.
  • Added Multiman method for disc-less from /app_home (thanks to DeanK for commenting how it works). This increases the compatibility.

Everything is working fine so far (FTP, PS1, PS3, COPY/DELETE etc).

Still not the update I'm waiting for but it should be getting closer as I've asked for that feature to be added.
