IRISMAN aldostools has released IRISMAN v3.29.

Changelog 3.29 (Sep 15/2014)
- Game Options now loads faster and looks better
(The PIC1.PNG is not longer displayed by default as the background
picture. It caused delays and memory issues. It can be re-enabled via
settings.ini)

press SQUARE to set it as background picture)
- Added option to display covers with/without box (SELECT+SQUARE)
- Added support for lastGAME SS [NPEA00374]
- Added 4.6x Cobra detection to avoid ODE patches on Habib’s CFW

UPDATE: About the error 80010017 “loading sprx_iso plugin” on 4.65 Habib Cobra v1.0… I have added a detection of smhabib Cobra for 4.6x to avoid the installation of the new Habib’s patches for ODE. BTW This error is not present on 4.65 Cobra by Joonie.

Changelog 3.28 (Sep 12/2014)
- Added Finnish language (thanks to jisola)
- Added support for multiMAN’s lastGAME and the new IRISMAN’s LastPlay
- Fixed freeze issue after unmount a ntfs device on File Manager using SELECT+SQUARE

Changelog 3.27 (Sep 8/2014)
- Fixed the new drm patch by Habib for 4.6x (it had a typo: a missing 01 in the patch)
(Includes the fix error 0×8001002B, same as 3.25+. I removed it in 3.26, but the black screens returned)
- Fixed the offset for the lv2 Memory Protection on 4.60/4.65 and now it’s enabled by default.
- Reverted the payload_460.c: Removed the fix_error function due I found it more difficult to port for future versions

    Supported CFW using mamba are:
    CEX: 3.55/4.21/4.30/4.31/4.40/4.41/4.46/4.50/4.53/4.55/4.60/4.65
    DEX: 3.55/4.21/4.41/4.46/4.50/4.53/4.55

HINT: If you get a black screen mounting games stored on USB, try resetting the USB bus (disconnect all the USB devices and plug again only the device containing the game that you want to play). Also try enabling the ‘BD Mirror‘ option found in the Game Options (JB folders only).

* Spoof Firmware Version to 4.55 (for 4.46)
* L3+R2+[TRIANGLE] – Enable/Disable webMAN fan control. Has same effect as opening [Setup] and changing the option. It is saved in the settings file.
* Three strings added to gui.h

Changes in webMAN 1.29 updated 2014/01/25:
* Changes to the PASSIVE FTP mode:
- For each ftp connection webMAN will try to use a single port (the first it manages to bind a socket to).
- The port range is from 32768 to 65279.
* Optimized few other things (8KB of memory saved).

Changes in webMAN 1.29:
* Removed [x] Aggressive fan control mode option, because it is now the standard way of setting the fan
* Removed unnecessary options for temperature control (CPU, RSX, CPU+RSX)
* Added Lowest fan speed: 22% option to set whatever (20-99%) you want for lowest speed of your PS3 fan. You will see a tick (enabled) only if you have fan control enabled in “Auto” mode.
* Decreased sprx size a bit and fixed few minor things

Changes in webMAN 1.28 (update #2):
* Fan speed is not longer set to “PS2 Emulator” value if fan control is disabled.
* Fix report fan speed 0% when fan control is disabled.
* Improved the fan control algorithm.

Changes in webMAN 1.28 (update #1):
* Fan control is supported on all CEX firmwares from 4.21 to 4.53
* After unloading webMAN with the combo (but not with /quit.ps3 from a browser) the fan will be set to the “PS2 Emulator” speed
* When PS2 ISO is loaded, webMAN will set the fan speed to the value set for “PS2 Emulator”
* webMAN can use dualshock/controllers assigned to slots 1, 2 and 3 (0 to 2)
* Added options in setup to disable selected PAD shortcuts/combos
* Improved handling of webMAN configuration data in memory

Changes in webMAN 1.28:
* Completely removed Estwald’s fan control payload from webMAN
* Removed all syscall interceptions required for fan-control
* When you quit/unload webMAN (manually or via PSNPatch) the fan control is returned to SYSCON
* Added [x] Show PSP Launcher setting in [Setup] (next to PLAYSTATION®PORTABLE)
* Finally (the reason for the payload removal) the audio from the optical output is not interrupted anymore when fan speed is changed in auto-mode.
* All former fan-control functions are now implemented using one simple syscall (sys_sm_set_fan_policy)
* sprx size (53KB) and plugin memory usage decreased, the stress on the system is now less

Changes in webMAN 1.27 (update #4):
* Keeping NTFS USB HDDs from entering sleep mode should now work (if you didn’t disable USB polling in [Setup]). Drives are checked every 2 mins.
* Titles with dot ‘.’ in their names are displayed properly in the popup when mounted

* Added option: [x] Disable temperature warnings.

Changes in webMAN 1.27 (update #3):
* webMAN can be unloaded from memory using the combo (L3+R3+R2).
If you press the combo (or use /quit.ps3) you will see “webMAN unloaded!” popup message.
* The combo SELECT+L3 will show the available space on the system storage (/dev_hdd0) along with CPU/RSX temperatures.

Changes in webMAN 1.27 (update #2):
* Removed the option in [Setup] to select how many titles are displayed in one row
* The icons will auto-fit any screen/device
* Icons and titles are now properly aligned
* The size of the generated HTML (and the used buffer) is smaller
* Improved looks

Changes in webMAN 1.27 (update #1):
* Added notification popup when you load game (or use PREV/NEXT with SELECT+L1/R1)
* Added SELECT+R3 to show CPU/RSX temperatures in XMB or while in-game (while in-game press {PS} button and then SELECT+R3)
* Added support for sending messages to the PS3: http://your_ps3_ip_address/popup.ps3/Your message goes here…
* Decreased “Standard” and “Max” memory footprints
* Added “System overheat warning! CPU: xx RSX: …” popup message if CPU or RSX temperatures exceed 80°C
* Fail-safe combo changed to SELECT + L2 + R3 + L3 (to delete boot_plugins.txt and shutdown your PS3)

1) Connect a controller using USB cable
2) Press the {PS} button to turn on the PS3
3) Immediatelly press and hold both [SELECT]+[L2] + [R3] + [L3]]. Do not release until your PS3 turns off and then back on.

webMAN will delete boot_plugins.txt preventing plugins load on next boot and will restart your PS3 immediatelly. After boot you’re in plugins-free environment.

Changes in webMAN 1.26 (update #4):
- A new fan-control option is added in webMAN [Setup]:
* “PS2 Emulator: ** % fan speed” – you can set the desired value (default is 37%) for fan speed for PS2 emulator, or when the PS3 loads a system function (for database rebuild, firmware update, etc).

Changes in webMAN 1.26 (update #3):

Changes in webMAN 1.26:
* Updated prepNTFS to support PSX ISO (ISO/BIN+CUE) from NTFS drives
* Added support for PSXISO from NTFS drives to webMAN
* Added option in [SETUP]: [x] Disable firmware spoofing
* webMAN will also look for covers in mM format in its temp folder as /dev_hdd0/tmp/wmtmp/BLES12345.JPG

Changes in webMAN 1.25:
This is VERY IMPORTANT, so please read:
* webMAN for COBRA7 compatible firmwares is now the default release: webftp_server.sprx
* webMAN for non-COBRA firmwares is named webftp_server_noncobra.sprx
* webMAN for CCAPI is named webftp_server_ccapi.sprx

Why the change?
webMAN for cobra7 is now back down to just 54KB with a smaller memory footprint and less impact on vsh/games which may require more memory. If you download the ccapi/noncobra versions you’ll have to rename them properly.

=========

To grant NTFS access to webMAN you will have to use prepNTFS. You can either install the prepNTFS.pkg application or launch prepNTFS.self from multiMAN’s mmOS. In either case prepNTFS will scan all connected USB drives and will generate data for all PS3ISO/BDISO/DVDISO entries in /dev_hdd0/tmp/wmtmp. NTFS entries have .ntfs[PS3ISO] / .ntfs[PSXISO] / .ntfs[BDISO] / .ntfs[DVDISO] suffixes – 64KB each – this is what webMAN will use to mount the games/videos.

Download prepNTFS: http://www.deanbg.com/prepNTFS.pkg

You have to use prepNTFS if you add new content to your NTFS formatted USB HDDs. Do not forget to use [Refresh XML] / [Refresh HTML] to refresh webMAN’s data

There you are… in just 54KB plugin you have:
- FTP server with remote control functions (shutdown/restart)
- WWW server with remote control functions (scroll down for the complete list of shortcuts)
- Support for loading and browsing of [local] PS3 games in ISO and folder format, DVD videos in ISO format, Blu-ray movies in ISO format, PS1/PS2/PSP games in ISO format with cover display
- NETISO support for network loading and browsing of PS3 games in ISO and folder format, DVD videos in ISO format, Blu-ray movies in ISO format, PS1 and PSP games
- NTFS support for PS3 and PS1 games in ISO format, Blu-ray movies in ISO format and DVD Video in ISO format
- Dynamic Fan Control and in-game temperature monitoring
- PAD shortcuts (scroll down for the complete list of shortcuts)
- Keep USB device awake
- Mount last game or AUTOBOOT.ISO to system startup
- Spoof Firmware Version to 4.55 (for 4.46) (It may require 2 reboots)

Thanks to:

* Cobra Developer for ntfs_ext_iso and rawseciso
* Estwald for the ntfs library port and fan control payload
* @aldostools for tests and suggestions
* @Brenza for the nice update of the HTML/browser mode
* @twisted3313 for suggesting ccappi support

Recommended Settings

* If you only have one USB HDD – you can set “Wait additionally for each selected USB device to be ready” to 0 seconds.
* If you don’t use USB HDDs you can set “Wait for any USB device to be ready” to 0 seconds.
You can play with the timings of these two options if you have controller SYNC issues.

* If you have a SLIM PS3 with only /dev_usb000 and /dev_usb001 you can deselect all other drives to speed up boot time (that is if you don’t use hubs)
* If you have a FAT PS3 (non-BC) with only /dev_usb000 and /dev_usb006 you can deselect all other drives, too

You may have to clear /dev_hdd0/tmp/wmptmp folder or/and use [Refresh HTML] / [Refresh XML] if you have content scan disabled.

Changes to the settings are applied immediately in browser mode, which means that you can change nethost/ip, content scanning, etc… Reboot is only needed to apply the new settings to “My Games”.

Settings are saved as /dev_hdd0/tmp/wmconfig.bin (16 bytes)

The game list (for browser mode) is cached as /dev_hdd0/tmp/wmtmp/games.html and is refreshed only if you press [Refresh HTML] or if more than 12 hours have passed since the last refresh. The xml file for droidMAN is /dev_hdd0/xmlhost/game_plugin/mygames.droid

* In [Setup]:
Plugin memory usage: Standard (1024KB), Min (384KB), Max (1408KB)
The standard option uses 1MB of memory (as it always did) when doing the initial scan and generating the [Games] list for browser mode. The minimal one uses just 384KB (3 times less) and if you don’t have more than 300 games it should be the better option.

Using the “minimal” version I get about 2200KB free memory reported in /cpursx.ps3 page, compared to 1500-1800KB when using the standard one.

[x] Disable content scan at startup
You can use this option if you don’t change your games too often. Once you need to refresh the game list (xml) you can do it in [Games] -> [Refresh]. This affects only XMB and not the browser mode.

[x] Disable remote access to FTP/WWW services
With this option you can disable access to your PS3 from remote computers. Once the option is enabled you can access webMAN setup only from the PS3 browser itself.

Make sure to enter [SETUP] and set your preferred highest temperature (the default should be 70°C, but also may show 62°C, because of the previous webMAN version).

In dynamic fan control you have the options to auto set the fan speed based on: CPU, RSX, arithmetic average of CPU+RSX, or either CPU / RSX temperatures.

Changing the fan options in [SETUP] are applied immediately and don’t require restart (unless you want to disable the fan control). Fan options are only for 4.46 to 4.60 firmwares (thanks to Estwald for the fancontrol payload)

PS3 CPU temperature is monitored constantly and fan speed is changed accordingly for the best experience (both for your ears and for your PS3 calmness) If you previously use a manual fan speed, you may find that with the “Auto” mode your PS3 can be MUCH quieter, while still keeping it cool to the level you want.

On system boot the LED will turn into blinking YELLOW+GREEN – that means that webMAN started scanning devices and creating the .xml files. After webMAN finishes its work (in my case it happens when the “WARNING” message appears on screen) – the LED will turn steady GREEN

Remote web access to webMAN functions:


/ – PS3 file browser (e.g. http://your_ps3_ip_address/ or http://localhost/ from PS3 browser)
/setup.ps3 – Configure webMAN options
/cpursx.ps3 – Display CPU/RSX temperatures & free memory (page auto-refresh every 10 seconds)
/index.ps3 – Show game list
/refresh.ps3 – Rescan games and refreshes mygames.xml for “My Games” XMB entry
/index.ps3?html – Rescan games and refreshes games.html – the [Games] list for browser mode
/mount.ps3/<path> – Mount a folder as /dev_bdvd and /app_home
/mount_ps3/<path> – Mount a folder as /dev_bdvd and /app_home, and close the browser
/eject.ps3 – Eject disc
/insert.ps3 – Insert ejected disc
/quit.ps3 – Unload webMAN from memory
/restart.ps3 – Restart PS3 console
/shutdown.ps3 – Shutdown PS3 console (turn it off)
/popup.ps3/<your message> – Display a message on PS3 screen

PAD Shortcuts:


SELECT + L2 + R3 + L3 – Fail-safe combo to delete boot_plugins.txt and shutdown your PS3
SELECT + R3 – Show free space on the system storage (/dev_hdd0) along with CPU/RSX temperatures.
SELECT + UP/DOWN – Change dynamic fan speed settings
SELECT + L1 – Mount previous title from last 5 mounted games
SELECT + R1 – Mount next title from last 5 mounted games
R2 + L3 + O – Restart PS3
R2 + L3 + X – Shutdown PS3
R2 + L3 + R3 – Unload webMAN from memory / set fan to the “PS2 Emulator” speed

HINT: The combos above can be used in-game pressing {PS} then the combo buttons.

To use “SELECT+L1/R1″ for scrolling last 5 games you must load at least three different games (via browser or from “My Games”). Otherwise nothing will happen when you hit the combo.

In [Files] browser mode clicking <dir> will mount the selected folder as /dev_bdvd and /app_home, allowing you to install PKG files from local drives

Formats supported by webMAN:

* PS3 games in JB/folder format
* PS3 ISO games (in /PS3ISO) – split supported
* PSP ISO games (in /PSPISO and /ISO) – PSP Launcher 2.00 (from Cobra) is required for PSP ISO!
(ISO only – not CSO. multiMAN can be used to convert CSO games into ISO format)
* PS2 ISO games (/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO only)
* PS1 ISO/BIN games (in /PSXISO and /PSXGAMES)
* DVD movies in ISO format (in /DVDISO) – split supported
* Blu-ray movies in ISO format (in /BDISO) – split supported
* Network games in ISO/JB format, BDISO and DVDISO

webMAN requires a modified ps3netsrv and won’t work with the one from the cobra-rogero official rar/zip.
I’ll repost the link with my modifications just in case: http://www.deanbg.com/ps3netsrv.zip

Split format is MyTitle.iso.0 — MyTitle.iso.15

You can use split ISO on usb/hdd, but not over network. It won’t cache anything – it will just work – no delays.

For best results you will have to make the plugin load at COBRA7 system boot:
* Copy webftp_server.sprx to /dev_hdd0
* Create a text file boot_plugins.txt and upload it to your PS3 in /dev_hdd0
* Edit your category_game.xml (/dev_blind/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/category_game.xml) – the only change in this xml is to add one line. If you’re scared to do that, here is my category_game.xml – this is from COBRA7-ROGERO with only added “My Game” folder in the “GAME” column:

This is all you need:

1) webftp_server.sprx (in /dev_hdd0) -> http://www.deanbg.com/webftp_server.sprx
2) boot_plugins.txt (in /dev_hdd0) -> http://www.deanbg.com/boot_plugins.zip (unzip the file)
3) category_game.xml (in /dev_blind/vsh/resource/explore/xmb/) http://www.deanbg.com/category_game.zip (unzip the file)
4) COBRA7-Rogero firmware or 4.53 HABIB Cobra Edition 1.04 firmware or 4.55 Habib COBRA Edition 1.03
5) PS3 browser set in Tools -> Confirmation on Browser Close -> “OFF”

6) modified ps3netsrv for network games (net_host)
7) prepNTFS for PS3/PSX/BD/DVD ISOS stored on external NTFS drives.


How to install webMAN on a Cobra CFW

:
1) Update to the latest webMAN (http://www.deanbg.com/webftp_server.sprx)
2) Disable webMAN’s spoofing option in [Setup]
* You can skip 1) and 2) if you don’t use webMAN
3) If you used mmCM, start it and disable spoofing in settings – it will reboot your ps3
4) After restart your PS3 should report the real version 4.46 or 4.53 or 4.55
5) Install 4.46 COBRA 7.0, 4.53 HABIB Cobra Edition 1.04 or 4.55 Habib COBRA Edition 1.03
6) Replace category_game.xml so that webMAN shows again in XMB
7) If you want to use the proper stage2.bin [on 4.53CFW+Cobra] which fixes mmCM from locking on black screen:
— download it: http://www.deanbg.com/stage2.bin (thanks @smhabib )
— enable /dev_blind and replace the file in /dev_blind/sys/stage2.bin
(This is already implemented on 4.53 HABIB Cobra Edition 1.04 and 4.55 Habib COBRA Edition 1.03)

HINT: For easier installation of webMAN use XMB MOD Manager or COBRA CFW Tools.

To make the plugin load at system startup on Cobra7/Rogero firmware or 4.53 HABIB Cobra Edition 1.04 or 4.55 Habib COBRA Edition 1.03:
* Copy webftp_server.sprx to /dev_hdd0 (so its path will be /dev_hdd0/webftp_server.sprx)
* Create (or edit) /dev_hdd0/boot_plugins.txt and add a line for the new plugin: /dev_hdd0/webftp_server.sprx

Loading games in folder/iso format takes only 1-2 seconds, completely discless, child-proof.

If you add/remove games or attach new usb hdds you will have to use the “Refresh Game List” option in “My Games” or simply restart the system. A restart is actually required for the PS3 to re-read the regenerated fb.xml.

Note: PRX Loader must be run on every reboot. It is compatible with firmware 4.21/4.46/4.50/4.53/4.55 CEX or DEX and 4.60 CEX with LV2 Syscall 10. To make the sprx load when the system boots, install a CFW with COBRA 7.0 or use PRX Loader.

Sadly, I have been away from the Brewology for longer than I care to think. Life gets in the way, and a person’s education becomes a far greater priority than a forum board. With that said, I came back for nostalgic reasons and saw the atrocity the forums have become with spam. I set aside a few hours today and cleaned the forums to be more presentable. In the process I’m sure a few legit/older topics were also deleted (specifically the general chat). I’m sure spam will continue until the site owner implements more spam prevention measures.

I hope Brewology will one day be a thriving community as it once was.

Iris ManagerEstwald have released a new version of Iris Manager v2.93

IrisManager is an open source manager originally developed by Estwald (aka Hermes) and D_Skywalk, based on HermesManager. It is a completly legal open code manager Made with Homebrew tools.

Supports the custom firmwares: 3.41 (Hermes), 3.55 (Kmeaw), 4.21 & 4.30 CEX (with LV1 access,
like Rogero or Rebug), 4.31 CFW, 4.21 DEX, 4.40 CEX MLT, 4.41CFW, 4.41DEX CFW, 4.46CFW,
COBRA 7.0 and 4.50 CEX/DEX, 4.53 CEX and 4.55 CEX.

IMPORTANT: After installing the PKG, restart the PS3, if Iris Manager was loaded before.

What’s New in version 2.93:

- Updated the ISO tools ( PC_ps3iso_utilities_with_src_v1.8.zip ) to patch ISO games
  with required FW version up to 4.60 in patchps3iso

- By request of Lustar ( GameTDB ) I have introduced a new system to update the covers (covers):
  Iris Manager now use the User Agent "IrisManager - v2.93" to access that server.

- In the game updates, the User Agent was changed also to simulate a PC

- Added support ( for Cobra / Mamba ) for Bluray movies, DVD Video and MKV (using "BluRay Drive"
  on Showtime).
  In the "Homebrew" category the homebrews/PSN are listed first and in the new "Films" category
  (only the movies are listed)

NOTE 1: As a reminder, pressing R3 / L3 you access the various categories.

* Supports internal (hdd0) and external hard drives in NTFS, EXTx or FAT format.

* The bluray movies should be in the root folder /BDISO, the DVD movies in /DVDISO (as in multiMAN).
  Subfolders are allowed and a JPG with the same name as the ISO is supported as cover
  (e.g. my_film.iso -> my_film.jpg as cover).
  The display name is taken from the file itself, so it is recommended to edit it if it is too long
  or non descriptive.

* The MKV should go in the root folder /MKV.
  Subfolders are allowed and a JPG with the same name as the ISO is supported as cover
  (e.g. my_film.mkv -> my_film.jpg as cover).
  The display name is taken from the file itself, so it is recommended to edit it if it is too long
  or non descriptive.
  After selecting a movie, an ISO is created dynamically to associate with the BDVD unit,
  then Showtime is launched to play it.

NOTE 2: For films the Options menu (accessed with SELECT) is not available.

NOTE 3: We have also made ​​other changes to the code level, such as the inclusion in main.h
        of the tags that define the internal flags for the games / movies.
        I hope that I have not screwed it up in the translation of the code.

NOTE 4: In principle, the support for /BDISO and /DVDISO was included thinking on those who have
        a broken the Bluray drive.  Since we were doing this, MKV support was added (creating
        a dynamically ISO) if someone wants to use such films using covers.
        Showtime can play perfectly these movies with its NTFS support and it also allows you
        to navigate freely between directories: this option is mainly for geeks.
