28w ago - 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.
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
They are still 12 and you can add / remove or exchange options positions from holding down L2 and then TRIANGLE
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.
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.

Following up on his previous release, PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk (with help from Miralatijera) have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.22 followed by a bugfix with the changes outlined below.
Bugfix from Miralatijera for 4.40 CFW CEX with Core 3.0.1
Iris Manager v2.22 Changelog:
Payload for 4.40 added by Miralatijera / Miralatijera adds payload for 4.40 CFW CEX
To quote, roughly translated: Well, given that D_Skywalk is "low" paternity and asked me to open a new thread, to update it, that I do, taking advantage we have new version
What is Iris Manager?
Iris Manager is a charger continuously developing Backups created by D_Skywalk and based Estwald HManager of Hermes, 100% open source using PSL1GHT, allowing anyone can help to improve it. Loader simple, but lots of choice and very effective. Loads of PS3 and PSX Backups.
CFW different supports, such as CFW 3.41, CFW 3.55, 3.55 CFW DEX CFW 4.21, 4.21 CFW DEX CFW 4.30, 4.31 CFW.
Following up on his previous release, PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk (with help from Miralatijera) have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.21 with the changes below.
Miralatijera adds payload for 4.30 DEX
Modified the patched explore_plugin tool to show the BR disk icon and the word “game” in the XMB instead of “/app_home/PS3_GAME” (from a functional point of view should not change anything: it is only to distinguish when used one way or another)
What is Iris Manager?
IrisManager is a port of HermesManager based on PSLIGHT, Tiny3D, PS3Soundlib and OpenPS3FTP, is a completly legal open code manager Made with Homebrew tools.
No, Iris Manager can't patch the games like MM does. But maybe I could suggest that feature to the dev of Iris Manager, only I have a question, Do you know how MM patch those games? Only patch PARAM.SFO file or patch others like sprx or elf files?
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.
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:
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.
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.
Anybody that is using Iris can answer this question please?
