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)
Following up on the previous update, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.58 with the changes outlined below.
To quote, roughly translated: What's New in version 2.58:
Archive Manager (File Manager):
Added vertical split by default in windows A and B from resolution 720P (to switch between vertical/horizontal, press L2/R2).
Added .png/.jpg small viewer pressing X on these files.
Added automatic display of ICON0.PNG when we list from game directory (GAMEZ, GAMES) passing through the game folder (the viewer uses the path - "game folder"/PS3_GAME/ICON0.PNG to show it.
Fixed error of recurring copy when copy to the same unit, at a lower level folder.
Added libntf_ext latest changes that allow to use functions like fopen() for NTFS/EXTx drives.
NOTE: remember that NTFS/EXTx support only works in Archive Manager: to install .PKG proceed from there.
Following up on the previous update, today PlayStation 3 developers Estwald and D_Skywalk have updated the PS3 backup game manager known as Iris Manager to version 2.56 with the changes outlined below.
To quote, roughly translated: IMPORTANT: After installing the PKG , restart the PS3 , if it was loaded before Iris Manager
What's New in version 2.56:
Added support for devices with NTFS (Windows , read / write)) and EXT2/3/4 (Linux , read only) from "Archive Manager" (support to EXT2/3/4 filesystem partitions in external devices (only read access) from "Archive Manager")
Added support for BD Emu PS3_GM01 activated (support to "direct multiboot" discs using the disc structure: dev_bdvd/PS3_GM01/ in "BD emu" mode)
NOTE: Remember that writing is experimental support and assume risks when using it: check with "chkdsk " to ensure that no data is lost or corrupted.
With the partitions "ext" to be in read, no problem that can corrupt anything.
1) plug in the device and wait 5 to 10 seconds for it to mount. If not, unplug and re- plug. Multiple devices can be plugged.
2) the partitions are displayed as " ntfs0 :" a " ntfsX "
3) Remember that it is important to mount the device before unplugging: from the root option "Archive Manager" or leave Iris Manager
Added support asynchronous copy to speed up file copying in "Archive Manager"
Added option in "Archive Manager" (press SELECT) "Get file / folder info " for information on the number and size of files required to copy.
