20w ago - Following up on their previous official update, PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have now updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.51 with the changes outlined below.
Added support for 4.46CFW (from PS3Ita Manager v1.20. Thanks to Rancid-o and company) *Notes: Not tested by myself and i ignore if there are needed additional patches for Rogero 4.46 or if there is some kind of bug. I'm still in 4.40 MiralaTijera... so test it and if there is some problem will see what can be done
Updated languages Chinese simplifyed/traditional (Thanks Liqianyu) and portuguese (from PS3Ita Manager v1.20)
Added parental block to the settings menus (SELECT and START) based in the parental level of the user profile (readed from xRegistry.sys) to avoid kids entering in such setting menues. When the parental control is configured between 1 and 8 included it will be displayed a message when pressing these buttons
Finally, in related news King-Kratos (aka Haider Kiara) translated Iris Manager to Arabic with details below, as follows:

Following up on their previous revision, PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk (with help from Miralatijera) have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.36 with the changes outlined below.
Estwald said he wasn't going to change that, if you really want it, you can grab the source code and change it yourself (that's what the source code is for). If you can't program, maybe get someone to do it for you? It's not like Estwald is the only programmer on the internet.
Following up on their previous updates, PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk (with help from Miralatijera) have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.35 with the changes detailed below.
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
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.
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 their previous updates, PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk (with help from Miralatijera) have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.30 with the changes outlined below.
Fixed problems with recent CFW 4.40 (/ APP_HOME on Rogero v1.03)
Added some cosmetic changes to the GUI and full UTF8 support (now support Arabic characters, Japanese, Chinese, Russian, Greek, Korean, etc. using system fonts)
An example of using these fonts you can see it by pressing START on the main screen to enter the "Global Settings" and then pressing SELECT there.
The default Iris Manager uses 4 internal sources, which will function if used in the representation of the character located or not.
In that sense, it provides the ability to add a custom source, adding "font.ttf" folder Iris IMANAGER4 Manager installation, which will replace the main source used.
