    New version of M@tsumoto and aldostools’s mod of DeanK’s webMAN 1.30 released.

    This version features the following aditions:

    - Reduced memory foot-print usage when some content is not scanned (eg. PS2, PSP, PSX or Movies)
    - Updated italian translation (thanks to dino05)
    - Added PS2 Classics for the non-Cobra builds
    - Removed some dead code for the nonCobra build
    - Some fixes for the display of the icons
    - Added support for BIG 5 (Chinese encoded text)

    Please still note that NonCobra CCAPI build has many bugs reports due CCAPI platform, so the CCAPI build is provided “AS-IS” and we don’t expect any support for it.

    Latest version of PS3 Tools is out. This update fixes a major bug that caused the entire ISO to be deleted when attempting to Modify ISO.

    Update to PS3 ISO TOOLS v1.982B (09/26/14)
    Fixes a small bug which froze program when trying to extract a non-existing ICON0.PNG from some rare isos (Happened 2 me only on Okami HD, that has no ICON0.PNG)

    Version 1.98B (07/26/14)
    Fixed bug which deleted whole ISO when trying to only extract PARAM.SFO and game-icon via “Modify ISO(s)”

    Note: If you have problems/crashes with the patch functionality under win8(.1) try running PS3 ISO TOOLS as admin.


    PS3 ISO TOOLS V1.972B - by Rudi Rastelli

    @Estwald for “makeps3iso”, “extractps3iso” and “patchps3iso” *


    “PS3 ISO TOOLS” is an all-in-one tool for a complete PS3-ISO handling and contains:

    ISO-Generator to convert PS3-Folder-Format-Games 2 PS3-ISO-Format-Games (splitted big-files will be joined)
    ISO-Extractor to convert PS3-ISO-Format-Games 2 PS3-Folder-Format-Games (big-files will be optionaly splitted)
    ISO-Splitter to split single PS3-ISOs for use on a FAT32 device (“*.iso.0″, “*.iso.1″, …etc)
    ISO-Joiner to join splitted PS3-ISOs into single PS3-ISOs
    ISO-Modifier to rename single or splitted PS3-ISOs according to game-info found in “PARAM.SFO”-file to hide/un-hide parts of splitted ISOs (“*.iso.1″, “*.iso.2″, …etc) to extract and save “PARAM.SFO” and “ICON0.PNG” as “[ISO-name].SFO” respectively “[ISO-name].PNG” within ISO-folder
    ISO-Patcher to patch single or splitted PS3-ISOs to a lower firmware version (down to 4.21)


    Pretty self-explanatory… read the tool-tips


    You can batch-convert all of your PS3-Folder-Format-Games, when you select your game-archive as source-folder(eg “X:GAMES” or “X:GAMESZ”)
    All other tools, with the exception of ISO-Patcher, support batch-operation as well. Just multi-select the ISOs you like to process.
    As default ISO-names will NOT contain special ASCII-characters 0-31, 126-255 and also NOT /:*?”<>| … This is to avoid problems with webMAN (You can allow usage of special ASCII-characters 126-255, like ‘™’ or ‘®’ in “ISO-conversion-Options”)
    After conversion/extraction a log-file will be shown, which compares size and number of files/folders. An eventually existing firmware-update-file ‘PS3UPDAT.PUP’ will be left out of the ISO. Because of this log-file reports that the generated ISO about 256MB less than the source game-folder. This is no problem and status in log-file will be ‘OK’ in such a case.

    While converting to ISO-format “PARAM.SFO” and “ICON0.PNG”(Game-Icon) will be placed (hidden) as “[ISO-name].SFO” and “[ISO-name].PNG” at target-folder. If you use webMAN copy these 2 files(per game) to “/dev_hdd0/tmp/wmtmp/”. This will save you the effort to mount each game at least once to make webMAN display it’s game-icon.
    Aborted batch-conversions could be continued. Already finished conversions will be skipped.
    To patch ISOs under Windows 8(.1) click right on “PS3_ISO_TOOLS.exe” and choose “Run as administrator”.

    Developer Zecoxao was able to get running various BD-J homebrew on PS4. Most assumed that it should work but nobody was sure 100%. Yes we can now run some homebrew on PS4 but don’t expect this as a major breakthrough. This was also done on PS3 prior to its first jailbreak.

    quote via PlayStationHax
    This should not come as a shock that it actually works, but should be more of a shock that Sony didn’t find some way of blocking this method of running homebrew from being run via a burned disc.

    A few days ago zecoxao created this thread requesting that people make some BDJ homebrew, most of us assumed that it should work, but none of us knew 100% if this worked or not, until aries2k posted these two videos:

    quote by aries2k via PlayStationHax
    Unfortunately, these emulators would have to be recompiled without using the START or Select buttons since the DS4 doesnt have them. I couldn´t get most roms I tried to start on both emulators. Also no sound yet with BD-J homebrew

    There´s more BD-J homebrew than I thought.
    Still I don´t think anyone made use of the network and HDD storage capabilites like with BD-Live. I´ve transfered various files from BD-Live over to the ps4s harddrive. Lol, it seems to let you use all the free space on the HDD. I´ve used BD-LIVE on another BD-Player with a usb to see what kind of files are transfered and there are some .jar files in there.
    So in theory maybe it would be possible to tranfer BD-J homebrew to the ps3s hdd and then use a BD (boot)disc to select the different homebrew on the HDD through BD-Live?

    I have reached out to the developer of the original PS3 Minimal BDJ SDK to see if he could update it, so that it accommodates the PS4 control pad, also Blu Ray Java and Java in general should be more advanced now than it was back on the PS3 and with more power on the PS4, perhaps we could now implement sound and perhaps have better homebrew.

    Here are some facts:
    This is NOT a hack.
    This is NOT anything major and will not lead to anything major.
    This will NOT let you run PS4 “backups”.
    This will NOT give you any access to the PS4’s OS system files.
    This is NOT illegal.
    This does NOT void your warranty.
    This will NOT let you run PC games on your PS4.
    This will ONLY let you run Java software.
    We all know that this isn’t any type of break through, it is using a system that is already in place, to run something that we have created ourselves, it runs from disc and does not touch any part of the PS4’s operating system, so do not expect anything huge from this.

    If anything comes from this and the SDK is updated, do expect some fun homebrew and app’s that we can use on our PS4’s.

    This method will also work on the PS3 and should work on the Xbox One, not sure about the Wii U, but we won’t know until it is tested.

    Playstation Now is now available for the PS3 in the mainland of United States and Canada (with some exceptions), after little over a month on PS4.

    The service now counts with more than 150 titles and expects the arrival of God of War: Ascension, inFAMOUS and Ultra Street Fighter IV. It requires a good internet connection, with reccomended minimum 5Mbps download speed.

    Reception is still diverged, with Now being criticized for high rental prices, being a paid beta and not distinguish costumers who already own the offering titles.

    * htsp: Sort channels in datamodel based on channelNumber
    * ps3: Filter out Access-Unit-Delimiters in h264 stream when playing HTSP. Tvheadend places those incorrectly and this causes the ps3 h264 cell decoder to barf

    This deprecates arch_cache_avail_bytes() which was broken on ps3
    * A slight workaround to fix problems with throbber when searching:
    The root cause is the ‘origin’ link in pages that gets incorrectly
    relinked when a page is closed. Not 100% how to fix this but this
    workaround seems to do it for now
    * prop: Fix bug when unlinking (we cant just throw away all link tracks
    * prop: Add various debug helpers and some unit tests
    * Fix uninitialized var when compiling with -Og
    * prop: Fix problem in search_for_linkagel
    This sometimes made prop_unlink() fail to detect when it needed
    to restore subscriptions

    This tool can be used to load webMAN with PS3 ISO support on non-Cobra CFW.

    The tool is based on IRISMAN. It simply loads the CFW payloads & patches, installs the mamba payload in memory and starts the VSH PRX loader with webMAN-MOD.

    Release Notes
    Edit the included plugins.txt found in /dev_hdd0/game/IRISMAN01/USRDIR to load additional plugins.

    Thanks to: Estwald, u$er, Joonie, Habib, deank, Cobra Team

    - Currently load: webMAN 1.30.25
    - Fixed the issue with idps/fan controller on 4.65
