To quote: Simplicity v2.58 - A Simple Kind of Loader - Brought to you by StephenCapes

Simplicity is a modified version of the well known backup loaded “Iris Manager”. The source version I started with is v2.58 by Estwald. The main reason for this fork was to simplify the GUI and make it look a little more polished. This is my first PS3 Homebrew release so go easy on me and let me know areas I could improve.

Changes from Iris Manager:

  • Background colors have been removed, leaving a simple black.
  • Music has been completely removed.
  • Date, Time, Temp, and Device Space has also been removed.
  • In cover flow mode game sorting by console has been removed.
  • FTP Icon’s color has been changed
  • Other minor GUI changes were made.
  • Navigation controls have been altered (“X” is accept, “O” is back, “Triangle” is game settings, “Square” is not used, “Select” is global settings “, “Start” is not used)
  • The rest stayed the same.

Changes for Simplicity v2.58.1:

  • added back the USB overlay

Other changes will be coming... Thanks you for your support!!

Changes for Simplicity v2.58.3:

  • removed game config*icons*(Direct Boot & Requires Disc) from game selection
  • made adjustments to the grammar throughout...
  • removed unnecessary notifications
  • removed the "Favorites" function
  • changed the font to the default PS3 font
  • added support for DEX versions 4.41, 4.46, and 4.50
  • cleaned up some of the coding and changed version to 2.58.3 (2.58.2 was a beta for DEX support)

Other changes will be coming...

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?
