PS3 NANDS are read and written interleaved, so if someone wants to check the Firmware content he have to use this tool in order to obtain a file that's like the console manage once we turn it on.
It's for study purposes, to allow skilled people to check the PS3 Firmware.
Some notes: Only full dumps should be used with this tool, old dumps without spare data are invalid so they won't output a valid result.
Swap bytes should be enabled, other checkmarks are there for study purposes.
Beware, almost all files are crypted! ...good study
