New categories such as Multimedia, PS3 Loader, Thegra, Homebrew, Emulators, manager set aside the typical native application. Photos, Music, Videos, TV, disappear to make way for Multimedia.

New Category

This new category gives rise to a union of native options like photo, music and video. This new category will appear the famous player Showtime, which already includes the possibility of a single application in many more options than what they offered us the categories natively native officers.

  • Listen to music
  • Being able to see videos like avi, mpeg, xvid, divx, MKV including
  • View photos
  • Demand movies
  • TV-Channel

PS3 Loader

This new category was born to take charge from now manage the contents of the old Sony consoles, this means that both PS1/PS2/Minis Games and the saves these become part of this new category, freeing imnecesarios to GAME icon.

It is also where you store the backups RetroLoader (aka modified cobrausb backup manager) responsible for managing the games PS1, PS2 and PS3

Thegra - the new star category and plugins

This new category includes the plugins manager, service packs. Thegra is the name of the loader plugins, these plugins will give the console first choices, which the imagination of every developer could unleash the potential of this charger.

Emulators

This new category will be responsible for having ordered all the old console emulators.

Homebrew

This new category includes all homebrew created to date, for it will have access to from where you can download OpenPStore the last hombrews etc. to be placed automatically at their place of origin and not as the previous game.

Gestor

This category will see that we can easily able to manage the game saves, pkgs, ftp, etc.

Cobra JFW Payload Plugin

  • DH and has advanced the issue.

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:

  • Image-intall
  • Image-Boot

JFW Preloader - The recovery of DH includes a preloader that is responsible for:

  • Back of the 3 RAW Flash to external media (USB)
  • 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
  • More surprises

Except for DEX stuff, this is the ongoing Iris Manager thread we use... however, in an upcoming release I will start a new dedicated thread for it per your suggestion. It appears they are kicking Iris Manager development into high gear lately so it probably won't be too long.

don't know if i should point this out but as this thread should be dead by now, and the convo is most certainly off topic, can't we move the convo to a new thread?

erm just ignore this post i just went through it and realised the iris creator is to do with dh so... i'm a dumbass today.

I've updated my MM yesterday to latest version, still as nippy as ever for me, did go a bit clunky at around v4.14, but all that seems to have sorted itself out.

As MultiMan is becoming bloatware I'll give this a go.

Just tried it on 4.21REX and it says "Unsupported firmware" and quits.

Following up on the previous revision, today Spanish PlayStation 3 developer Estwald has updated the Iris Manager PS3 game backup manager to version 1.45 followed by v1.46, v1.46.2 and v1.46.3 with the changes outlined below.

Download: Iris Manager v1.45 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v1.46 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v1.46.2 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v1.46.3 for v4.XX PS3 CFW / Iris Manager v1.46.3 for v4.XX PS3 CFW (Source Code)

To quote, roughly translated: Well, Version 1.45 at this rate, we will update the rhythm of Multiman [+ laughs]. No, really: unless it is something of God, I have no intention to update more

In firmware version 3.41 is added: all works, as I have above and arranged the 3.55, which brought us to head for a stupid mistake [+ laughs], but also had a problem with one of the "pokes" I had to solve. And those of us in 4.30, what?.

Then I thought about the whiners: D_Skywalk is who has control of the versions after all and I have no guilt if you do not like the "flicker" that put the icon or the colors I choose [qmparto]. So the best we can do is "fool" and minimally modify the GUI to accomplish the following:

Now there are 8 colors to choose, the first four, as always, with the fading light of the selected icon appears D_Skywalk likes, but others we mola Unless, that is "not seen" so fast.

The next four activate the "flicker" that got me, you fat and shrinks the icon. The first is the "Beautiful Blue" that some claims in a while [qmparto] [plasma], the second is the same as the default (gray-beige) and the third a blue-violet and the fourth new rosita for girls D_Skywalk including [haha].

The reason for two-color copy of the original, is that I know: some will want to use those colors but with the "blink" again (or worse: want the new colors but how D_Skywalk) [Toctoc]. So this time we win and I think we keep D_Skywalk happy to, because the changes I had to do to all that are minimal and respect both.

By the way, Mr. D_Skywalk: this time if I left a brief note. Some changes you may seem trivial, but I assure you that in the absence of 3.55 parenthesis in a function petaba poke me the entire application. There are things that are done in a certain way, that's how it seems to work and not on a whim. Take this into consideration [+ laughs]

Regards

1.45 Changelog:

  • Support for firmware 3.41, 3.55 fixed, 21.4 adds DEX
  • Fixes installer PKG
  • Added new background colors with automatic selection of "flicker" or not. These changes are minor and I hope that you accept as is. Basically, if you use the first four colors is selected icon as you let him, but if you select the 4 new (2 are the same as those you use your) changes to flashing mode so clever

Salgo minor bug or market, this is the last change I have thought to do that is not related with the ISOS.

v1.46 Changelog:

  • Added the patch for 4.30 Rebug LV1 CEX to prevent the "panic shutdown" bug from occurring
  • Improved recognition of PSX discs

v1.46.2 Changelog:

  • PSX / PS1 disc games bug fix

Rough translation (via elotrolado.net/hilo_3-55-4-30-iris-manager-v1-38_1842936_s280#p1731280734): Good Estwald, Since I'm "tester" because I'm indicating hehe . Following the same tests as I said in another post, it seems that still does not work and the original directly, or the backup (unless another hard target if recognized earlier and then force the restart of play) [buuuaaaa].

Well, as always follow your progress and encouragement. Regards and happy hehe kings. I just uploaded a new version that fixes that. The modification basically consists of adding this, for which you are interested.

if(find_device==11) sprintf(filename, "/dev_bdvd");
else if(find_device==0) sprintf(filename, "/dev_hdd0");
else sprintf(filename, "/dev_usb00%c", 47+find_device);

DIR *dir;
dir = opendir (filename);

if (dir) {
closedir (dir);

if(find_device >= 0 && find_device < 11) move_bdemubackup_to_origin(1
