We will continue to add relevant links as they are dug up, and also links to posts with all new guides that prove useful.

Do we know which are windows or linux (osx?)
Good question... I think they are all geared for Windows, but I will check into it later today and report back if any support Linux also.

Can't write anything in the fields in LG5Tool and PS3.ProxyServer.GUI gives me an unhandled exception. I'm runnig windows 7 if that makes any difference.

Do we know which are windows or linux (osx?)

It's been awhile since I've bothered with this but the PS3 System Update Bypasser BETA v0.1 worked a treat.
