To quote: well, as everyone is creating his own fork... I decided to make my own fork.

It is not intended to be a competition entry nor a replacement of any manager. I made this fork just for FUN (and for educational purposes)... Do not expect any new fancy feature... it is basically the same 2.60B (with all the Cobra stuff added by Estwald) with IMHO a better button layout and a couple of cosmetic changes. For respect to the original dev, I didn't use a different name and just added the term "(mod)".

Holding L2 or R2 when the program starts you can go directly to File Manager. Some of the changes are:

File Manager:

  • Select + Start access the File Manager (like multiMAN)
  • L1 / L2 in File Manager scroll by page
  • Left Dir / Right Dir changes to focus to left/right (top/down) panel (formerly L1/R1)
  • Select + O prompt if you want to exit to XMB from File Manager
  • O on the Game List asks if you want to exit to XMB
  • Triangle is menu (like in XMB)

Game List:

  • Select + O on the Game List asks if you want to reboot the PS3
  • Triangle is menu (like in XMB)
  • O is cancel (like in XMB)
  • L2 + Start switches between coverflow/game list

I was going to keep it for personal use, but I think someone could find it useful and use the changes that I made to improve the Manager.

Update: Ok, I changed the ID to IRISMAN00.... For the moment I "changed" the name to "Iris MANager (mod)". Obviously the "MAN" in uppercase is a direct allusion to multiMAN (most of the changes were made to resemble it). If someone can suggest a better name... I can change it....

PS. the version with the new name has now 3 GUI modes: grid 6x4 from PS3ITA, the original grid 4x3 and the recent coverflow.
PS2. Although the file name still says "IMANAGER4", the content ID is "UP0001-IRISMAN00_00-VER260BMOD000003"

Changelog 2.60B-1:

Holding L2 or R2 when the program starts you can go directly to File Manager. Some of the changes are:

Buttons / Function

File Manager

  • Start + Select: Access the File Manager (like multiMAN)
  • L1 L2: In File Manager scroll by page
  • Left / Right: Changes to focus to left/right (top/down) panel (formerly L1/R1)
  • Select + O: Prompt if you want to exit to XMB from File Manager
  • O: On the Game List asks if you want to exit to XMB
  • Triangle: On the Game List asks if you want to exit to XMB is menu (like in XMB)

Game List

  • Select + O: On the Game List asks if you want to reboot the PS3
  • Triangle: Is menu (like in XMB)
  • O: Is cancel (like in XMB)
  • L2 + Start: Switches between coverflow/game list

Changelog 2.60B-2:

  • Added option to disable the integrated fan control utility (it does not try to load the payload)

Changelog 2.60B-3:

This is an unofficial version of Iris Manager 2.60B. This version includes all the nice Cobra features added by Estwald. The changes that I made are mainly related to the user interface (buttons layout are more XMB-like, quick access to File Manager, progress bar when game list is scanned, colors, 3 gui modes, etc.).

It also includes the Payloads for 4.41DEX/4.46DEX/4.50DEX and the grid 6x4 from Rancid-O's PS3ITA Manager. The most notable feature is that unlike the official version, it scans GAMES/GAMEZ/GAMES_DUP/GAMES_BAD on the external drives.

  • Now scans for PS3 games in the following folders: /GAMEZ, /GAMES, /GAMES_DUP, /GAMES_BAD (external drive)
  • The Yes/No dialogs can be cancelled with CIRCLE
  • Added payloads for 4.41DEX, 4.46DEX, 4.50DEX from PS3ITA (all the credits to Rancid-o / Zz_SACRO_zZ)
  • In File Manager, the O now acts like multiMAN's mmOS (show file menu) (exit to Game List with Select + Start -> same as multiMAN)
  • Now there is a progress bar when games are being scanned
  • Quicker access to the File Manager with L2 or R2 when the program starts (now it does not scan the game list)
  • Exit from File Manager does not scan the game list unless there was a copy/delete/move activity (use R3 if you need to refresh the list)
  • Now it also has mode 6x4 from PS3ITA for a total of 3 modes (coverflow, 6x4, 4x3). (I had many freeze issues with the mode 8x6, so I didn't add it)
  • Changed the Tilte ID to "IRISMAN00" to avoid conflict with Iris (official version).

Changelog 2.60B-4:

  • Auto preview images in FM (.png, .jpg)
  • Support to .ISO.0 (uppercase) in FM
  • Custom ftp commands (SITE SHUTDOWN, SITE REBOOT)

Changelog 2.60B-5:

  • Added auto-launch of PSX ISO if found in /USRDIR/ps1_iso/ (now you can create your own bootable PSX isos on non-cobra CFW or replace the self+eboot in PS1toPS3's USRDIR folder to run it on CFW 4.46-4.50).
  • Fixed bug: ISOs were listed 4 times
  • Improved mount last game (holding L1 when the program starts)
  • Improved PSX ISO split list: now can be cancelled, use UP/DOWN to select
  • File Manager is more responsive, EBOOT and ISOs are listed in green
  • Fixed freeze accessing Game Option from grid 4x6.

Changelog 2.60B-6:

  • Added GUI mode 8x6 from PS3ITA (now there are 4 GUI modes)
  • Added memory card configuration launching IRISMAN and holding L1/R1 when a PSX ISO exists in USRDIR/ps1_iso/
  • More bug fixes.

Changelog 2.60B-7:

  • Fixed a bug that caused an exit to XMB while changing the settings in the GUI modes 6x4 and 8x6.
  • Added a progress bar to Fix File Permissions.

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.

Iris Manager always loads the fan control payload when the manager is started and the payload stays running until the next restart.

In IRISMAN, 'disabled' means that the manager will not load the fan control payload. The system will continue using the current fan control method (e.g. SYSCON or webMAN's dynamic fan control it is enabled).

so with the control fan utility payload disable would this make the fan run like when i i didn't have it installed?
