According to RichDevX's Twitter (linked above), Hellcat plans to release an updated Homebrewed PS3 SFO Editor in approximately 48 hours.
This comes roughly two years after the PS3 BRDGen Team released a similar application dubbed SFO-Edit v1.0.
According to the pictures (below), the homebrew PS3 System File Editor v0.80 will attempt to reproduce the functionality that Sony's PS3Gen (ps3sys.exe specifically) offers for SFO extension files... allowing you to view, edit, and save PARAM.SFO files.
We will update this post when it's actually released of course.

Well, they are handy when rebuilding game images (though hex editors can change the Firmware version just as easily) but until the PS3 is hacked I don't see many mainstream PS3 uses for either application sadly.
One thing I did notice in the picture above is that SilverSpring helped Hellcat with it. Those who are familiar with PSP Dev stuff (or even his blog: my.malloc.us/silverspring) know that he is talented in reverse-engineering. It would be great if he could actually assist the PS3 Devs with the RE Project.
Yeah - A decent little application it seems like, but its similar in function to the SFO-Edit that we released nearly 3 years ago. Just about a clone of the official Sony Application - but at least someone else is working on PS3 stuff, albeit on a PC, and re-doing the work of others!
