    Update (v1.47.27 - 20200517) since the initial release of webMAN MOD v1.47.27 @aldostools has made huge improvements to the plugin with these latest revisions to v1.47.27.The developer is adding alot of new functionality to the plugin and has some big announcements in the latest changes. See UPDATED changelog and also quote from developer Aldostools himself about the latest progress provided to the PS3 Plugin in this latest update
    (Original Article) Developer @aldostools whom recently updated IRISMAN for 4.86 Support (& more) has also updated the popular plugin webMAN MOD to version 1.47.27 with support for 4.86 firmware. That has not been the only changes provided to the webMAN MOD plugin. For instance, If you are transferring files via FTP that information will be displayed in the Temperature Monitoring page (from a networked connected broswser: your ps3ip/cpursx.ps3). The plugin has some other additional features and fixes provided in this update marked in the changelog provided below.

    webMAN MOD is a fork of @deank's original webMAN. Dean's version is solid and provides a great experience on its own and provides a great foundation to webMAN MOD which started out as a collection of mods and the developer Aldostool's really took over the fork's development and provided many new features / support and takes the plugin into modern times. Both are great options provided by great developer's and to get a bit of insight on their development perspective be sure to checkout our recent interviews of both of these developer's deank (vol.1) and also Aldostools in (vol. 3) from our Power Supply Series

      No, the PS2 emulator only supports the ISO image file from HDD0.

      The problem with PSPISO was different:

      When a PSPISO was mounted the original code from Cobra mounted the ISO temporarily in /dev_bdvd to read the EBOOT.BIN and find the keys needed to start the game. This is fine with PSPISO in internal HDD and in USB FAT32 that don't need /dev_bdvd to access the files.

      With rawseciso plugin (used for NTFS/exFAT) and netiso plugin(used to mount net games), the PSPISO was not longer available when the ISO was mounted to extract EBOOT keys, because these plugins use /dev_bdvd as interface with the native file system.

      The solution was to change the Cobra code to find the EBOOT keys in a different way: parsing directly the raw file structure of the ISO, instead of mount the ISO as /dev_bdvd.

      The other problem was that PSPISO was being mounted as a file system, but the mount point of Cobra needs the path of the ISO file. To solve this issue I had to use 2 approaches:
      1- In NTFS, the PSPISO is not mounted. Instead a fake ISO is created containing the PSPISO.
      (prepISO is needed because it creates the fake ISO)
      2- For ps3netsrv, the solution was easier: the folder /PSPISO is mounted instead of the ISO.

      Nice explaination :encouragement:
      So summarizing, the cobra code is finding the PSP keys by using a method that is unnecessarily complex, but by doing it in a "raw" way is easyer and less problematic

      Im wondering if this improvement could be added to the next cobra version ?
      In the way you explained it makes sense to me that is better to do it in "raw" for all PSP mount modes
      I mean... even for internal hdd, just to standarize it, and just because it looks the correct way to do it

      My only doubt is if finding the keys in "raw" is going to find them successfully 100% of the times
      aldostools and UFC3 like this.
    3. LuanTeles
      Since the ps2 emu is not created with usb in mind, it shuts down the ports so that's why the iso loading from external devices does not work
    4. Omage
      ps3 restart call ps2netemu, no loader Lv2 kernel
    5. aldostools
      Maybe the raw method it's not 100% accurate, but in my research I found that EBOOT.BIN and EBOOT.OLD directory records are always found at sector 24 (0x18). Sector size is always 2048 (0x800) bytes. Once the EBOOT.BIN is found, it's a simple math of the use the LBA indicated in directory record and multiply it by 0x800 to find the offset of the file in the ISO. The PSP key is found in the first 212(0xD4) bytes of the EBOOT.

      As you suggested, it's feasible that the code to find the key could reside inside Cobra payload. However, there is a size limit for the payload and adding more code could make it reach the limit easily. It should be tested if could be added to one of the following functions:

      Even getting this in Cobra, there is still another requirement: the functions sys_psp_set_umdfile, sys_psp_read_header and sys_psp_read_umd require the path of the UMD image (PSPISO). They would require a change to make them work with the raw sectors obtained from ps3ntfs_file_to_sectors instead of use the path of the ISO. I solved this issue creating a "fake ISO" that contains the UMD file using prepISO.

      So, there is a lot of work to do in Cobra to make it work in a less complex way.

    6. aldostools
      Yes, indeed ps2_netemu is a replacement of lv2_kernel. As it only launches the PS2 emulator, the system counts with more resources to execute the PS2 games.

      We only have the symbols for ufs operations (ufs_open, ufs_read, etc.) that only work with files on HDD.

      BTW that "common.c" module is the one that emulates the SCSI response.
      It's similar to ps3netsrv or stage2/storage.c but for ps2_netemu.

    7. sandungas
      Well, i like it anyway because incase there is some rare game or rare tool breaking that standard the "PSP key finding" code can be reviewed, and i guess that review is not going to increase the code size much, in the worst scenario it would be some minor change

      But implementing all this would allow to do a "direct boot" with PSPISO ? without using PSP launchers/placeholders, and without having any "PSP disc" icon in XMB ?
      A bit similar to the legacy "direct boot" method used in PS3 JB games
      Algol and UFC3 like this.
    8. aldostools
      The PSP Launcher is still needed. The implementation of the PSP keys code in Cobra only would allow to mount games on NTFS/NET in other backup managers in an easier manner.

      Anyway there are other requirements and I don't think it worth the effort to modify the Cobra payload, when the code can be implemented in the backup manager like I did in webMAN MOD.
      sandungas and Algol like this.
    9. UFC3
      So to play PSP games using the latest wMM directly from virtual BD?
      Like playing Retro games?
    10. sandungas
      The problem is the PSP games cant be "mounted" in a "virtual" optical device
      Think in what the backup managers does with PS2 and PS3 games, when you mount the game there is a system icon of the disc that "pops up" in XMB game column, like if you inserted a real disc
      But we cant insert a UMD disc in a PS3, the firmware is not ready for it
      This is why i mentioned the direct boot, because it looks like the only alternative to the "PSP launchers/placeholders"

      In plain words... it looks like is imposible to do that kind of virtualization that does a "pop up" of a PSP game icon in XMB... but maybe there is a way to do the direct boot

      The main problem is that PSP and PS2 Launchers do not have an EBOOT.BIN to execute.
      The only way to automate its execution would be having these launchers in a named query of category_game.xml and use the explore_plugin commands to find them on XMB and simulate a push of "exec" button.

      None of the CFW have that implemented and making these changes to category_game.xml in wMM only would cause a lot of complains and headaches.

      In /setup.ps3 there are 2 check boxes to show PS2 and PSP Launchers.
      As they are found in static locations, they can be auto launched when the game is mounted through webMAN Games menu.
      Algol and sandungas like this.

      Hi Aldo, is the function ""Offline" mode (blocks some PSN / tracking servers) and automatic restore when the CFW syscalls are removed." the same as the PSNpatch plugin function?
    13. aldostools
      "Offline" mode searches in LV1/LV2 memory the url of the PSN servers and replace them to make the servers unavailable. The original value is stored in an array.

      When CFW syscalls is performed, these url addresses are restored to the original value. So the servers are reachable again.

      I don't know if PSNpatch uses the approach, but in concept they are the same function.

      However, in webMAN MOD that function is optional and it's not enabled by default.

      In PSNpatch the PSN login is blocked since the system starts and unblocked when the syscalls are removed. PSNpatch does a few more things that I don't remember and it doesn't interfere with webMAN MOD. So it's safer to use both plugins, but wMM should be enough in most cases.

      hi aldo iwant to set the max fanspeed below 50% like 29%min to 34% max thats ideal for my system. can you make a change that allow to set the max settings below 50% please
    15. death_jax
      I think that in the latest v1.47.27 you can manually edit the default 80% value of the max fan speed [emoji848]

      Inviato dal mio Mi 9T Pro utilizzando Tapatalk
    16. GameGearZero
      i can edit but cant go below 50% for example i set it to 34% after save settings it jumps back to 50%. i think thats the default settings from aldo you can adjust between 50% to 99% max. but i want to set it below 50%
    17. ZeroOne
      Thank you for the recent update(s) @aldostools. After uninstall and clean install .27 and .28 updates wMM/psnpatch plugin isn’t unlocking PSN access when ‘disable CFW syscalls at startup‘ is selected and errors trying to log in to PSN or testing network in PS3 settings.
