Cobra JFW Payload Plugin

New Item Linux

The JFW DH was gonna be no less, that includes 2 options to use Linux back in the console, in this regard are:

  • Flashing copies from an external drive (USB).
  • Update the Preloader
  • Home of the flash write access (not necessarily more alejandro or substitutes)

The advantages are not required reinstalling all the PUP (from hardware checks) do not need to do: composite or go through the recovery.

Service Packs

Services include basic Packs to use plugins, loaders, ftp, etc.

Compatibility with Games and Applications

  • Using a DH-JFW 341v2 core, this does not mean not being able to play all over now without patching.
  • The DH-JFW is compatible with games that include between 3.56 down, including the current patched to 3.55
  • DH-JFW runs natively games until 3.56 (original disks) without having to upgrade.
  • PSN games that require NPDRM 356, are also supported without upgrading (the current CFW not give this support)
  • No need for a valid signature on the executable (including loaders and other files)
  • Not going to make a port to 3.55 of this JFW DH, since it includes much more than himself 3.55
  • Support for peripherals is not licensed by sony in that medium 355 is eliminated leaving them unused
  • The only custom firmware can take the keys with a dual NAND 3.6x (programmer) such as PNM and that allows the custom appldr redirect to another area of ​​the ram and so does not remove the old
  • Theme DHorg exclusive community that will change randomly each time the console or ignite the user cambieis

Following shortly after yesterday's revision, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald has updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 1.60 Beta 3 followed by Beta 4 with the changes detailed below.

Download: Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 3 / Beta 4 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 3 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 3 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #2) / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 4 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 4 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #2) / Iris Manager Wiki

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's new:

1.60 Beta 3 Changelog:

  • Improved emulation ps1_emu. Fixed some bugs, besides adding security enhancements. There is no sound cuts so annoying, anymore.
  • Fixed problem with Internal_MC that were wrong (which should have got 0xa0 instead of 0x0a )
  • Added ability to create a formatted Internal_MC (Video / Others)
  • Added the ability to run ps1_netemu.self and ps1_emu.self from Iris directory (if they are copied to /dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4. This opens the possibility (with a proper resign), to use emulators from a upper firmware in a lower one, and can be used patched or not)

1.60 Beta 4 Changelog:

  • Improveed ps1_emu emulation . now work games like Vagrant Story or Resident Evil
  • Added mode 3 to payload_storage to let launch the ISO for the cheats disc having a PSX disc on the drive. Just attach a pendrive, run with cheats and at the appropriate time, eject the ISO removing the pendrive. That works at least with Xploder 4 (if it’s necessary, you’ll have to eject the disc and insert it again: as soon as you detach the pendrive, the payload is disabled and the disc will work normally).
  • Fixed some bugs, like copying file when the USB is almost full.
  • All the payloads were modified to add a detection flag. That let you restart the console, for example, if you used multiMAN and the syscall 8 is inactive.

We continue in testing phase. In particular, I'm interested in receive reports from people that is having problems with black screens when they start the emulator (I got a check to see if the area of LV2 where I install is clean, but it could be the fcking of the instruction cache, therefore I have increased the number of cycles of the routine copy [+ laughs])

Regards

Following up on his previous update, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald (aka Hermes) has updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 1.60 Beta 2 with the changes below.

Download: Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 2 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 2 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror) / Iris Manager v1.60 Beta 2 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Mirror #2)

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

First of all, I would like to put three conditions:

1) I do not carry version control, because in github I canceled, I have no desire to go back to those bastards and git all problems are often under Windows, as not handle http addresses. So I'll post a RAR and point and if someone wants to take control of versions, back on, but for now, I'm not.

2) The official version is that we D_Skywalk and me. Your contributions are welcome, within a limit, it has been said that the GUI should be the same, basically, and not be breaking the application schema. That does not mean that you may not go it alone and break it in your own way, you will have to call but then otherwise your application, by request of D_Skywalk.

Obviously, if the changes are minor, no need to change the application name, but it is not in competition, if not collaboration. If that is respected, I have no objection to lend you aid, etc.

3) The third condition is rather a request that anyone who drives the Wiki, should be an entry "Iris Manager" to link it in this post and facilitaros the task if you or any morning for example, I abandoned the project.

And now, to the point: What's new:

  • Added PSX emulation syscall level: it is no longer necessary to patch the emulators and versions can delete "patched"
  • Works with ps1_netemu. Moreover, it is my choice RECOMMENDED smoother and games will I have to go wrong with ps1_emu, here are perfect
  • Files are needed. Cue with the same name as the. Bin. Img, etc, to describe the audio tracks. If it contains only the binary data, Iris Manager generates its corresponding TOC. psx_storage default also generates a TOC enough for this type of game. As I can complete wakefulness psx_storage operation.
  • Ability to load an external ROM to allow access to the transmission Memory Card (getting into a file dev_hdd0/game/IMANAGER4 ps1_rom.bin).
  • If you press CIRCLE + EQUIS with external ROM enabled, runs ejected disc so you can access the PSX MC Manager without having to disconnect the USB device. Unplugging / replugging once, the disc will be mounted and run.

More details IMPORTANT iso.txt psx 1.60, within the file Rar.

Regards

Finally, from butnut comes some related feedback, as follows: With version 1.60 beta 2, Chrono Cross does not freeze when you go into the status screen, and Vigilante 8 has working music too (V8 requires .cue file)

mahidi... had the same problem first... just follow the exact tutorial... check all the files u need! if only one file is missing it isn't working... i'm still waiting on a filemanager and dev_blind access....

also a last game like from mm would be great... so we can create xmb mount files... btw 8x4 cover sounds pretty good... i think this shouldn't be hard to do...

the only problem is if the developer will ever listen to our request... i will bet if he would add these futures a lot of people would say goodbye too mm...
