To quote: It features some huge code improvements that boost performance, a few bug fixes, XP support (could still be buggy do to lack of enough testers), and greatly improved game compatibility. I'm also including a new version of the cheat database with it, which has some new games and additional cheats for games that were already supported.
New features in this release:
SFO creation and patching is all done within this application now, instead of calling out to another application to do it. It's now creating a new param.sfo from scratch, using any pertinent values from the original param that it can. By doing it this way it's fixing a ton of current compatibility issues (like with Star Ocean and Ninja Gaiden 2). It's not using a generic value for certain things like resolution and sound format either, so it should clear up a lot of issues there and make it virtually future proof.
New version of unself included. This version is capable of creating elfs from already modified bins made with make_self. This will cut down on "Error creating elf" errors greatly.
Key folder fixes. Now, you have 4 folders to choose from to place your keys, and they will be copied to the folder they should remain at during the first run. Choices are [userprofile]\.ps3, [userprofile]\ps3keys, [applicationfolder]\.ps3, and [applicationfolder]\ps3keys. This information is shown when the application launches if none are found, and displays the exact folders for your individual computer.
Eboot fixing is now supported within this application. This means that eboots made for firmwares newer than 3.41 or 3.55 can be patched during creation instead of having A LOT on manual work needed after creation. Eboot patched for 3.41 work perfect for 3.55. At this time there is still no support for eboot fixing of 3.60 games do to the keys not being released yet.
Performance enhancements. I optimized thousands of lines of code, making the application run much faster.
Status bug fix. Status was not displayed until the process was finished. Status is now shown in real time.
Various other small bug fixes.
XP compatibility (Still not 100% tested, working perfectly on 2 testers' PCs). There seemed to be a permissions error when using XP and trying to delete certain temp files. This issue was caused by the .NET framework. I solved this by ignoring errors when attempting to delete certain problem files. Make sure you manually clean out any leftover files from your output directory when using XP.
Listen to some peers and get ideas on what else this application could use.
Add tabs for other functions this application could have that would help streamline creating cheat eboots (such as update pkg extraction and firmware fixes for other files besides the eboot.bin)

This is great for people that want to play offline or may be stuck in a difficult game.
Advice: Before everyone starts flaming the fact that it will destroy the economy, put Sony out of business and cause online gaming to be ruled by drug lords, just take a deep breath and relax before replying.
To quote: The PS3 Cheat Enabler is a simple GUI app that lets you turn on cheats in your games.
It works by editing the Eboot.bin files of your game, but not to worry fellow brethren, this GUI will get your cheats on and off in a click of a button.
Before you jump in, there are some tidbits of info you guys need to know, as in:
1. The cheat database comes in separately so make sure they are in the same folder to make the app work properly. We did it this way because it becomes easier to just update the database (just a few KB) rather than updating the entire software.
2. This app has an Auto Mode and Manual Mode. Auto mode is the easy way, just select the eboot, direct yourself to the correct game from the drop down box, check the cheats you want and wallah all done. Manual mode you need to select the eboot and put the hex pattern of the original code and then enter the hex pattern of the modified code and then update the eboot so the cheat is enabled. Auto Mode is normally preferred.
3. After the app edits the eboot, remember to replace it with the original eboot of the game or the cheats obviously wont work. Transfer it via USB,FTP it... doesn't matter, just get that edited eboot in the USRDIR of the game. Remember to keep a backup of the original eboot if you want to remove the cheats at anytime.
4. Newly created eboot is named MOD_EBOOT.BIN to avoid overwrite. Rename it and replace your original eboot, make sure to make a backup in case you want to revert the cheats
5. Known issues: select an output folder other than root or desktop, or leave it blank to create a defualtout folder in the same directory as the app, otherwise you might encounter an error due to privileges
6. We are working on pkg installing features for cheats to use with legit discs and non-backup manager loading games.
7. These cheats do not work in updated games as they are npdrm encrypted, we are working on a bypass (well actually blazie is doing most of the work... great guy.)
8. Most of the cheats we found are from codemasterprojects.com, really helpful site.
9. Also bear in mind that this app has been created for the enjoyment of yourself or just having a good time with your friends or whatever, it is NOT INTENDED FOR ONLINE CHEATING/PIRACY, you have been warned...what happens online with the cheats is your fault, we are not responsible.
10. This is a GUI port of the codemastersproject auto tools, which can be found http://www.codemasters-project.net/vb/showthread.php?13066-CMP-Auto-Tools&highlight=auto+tools.

- Saves last used output directory.
- Allows you to open bin files with the application. That way you can bind .bin files with it and open them by double clicking the file, or dragging the file onto this application and opening them that way.
This application requires a set of decryption keys to unself the EBOOT.BIN file. All you have to do is download the http://www.mediafire.com/?f885abtvdix3dfe and place them in your user folder. On Windows 7 that's in: C:\User\[yourusername]\ps3keys
Without the files you will receive an "elf not created" error msg.
