43w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer aldostools has released updates to his PS3 ConsoleID, RAP Management Tools and LastGAME Customizer v1.0 PS3 homebrew applications alongside PS3 Tools Collection v2.0.62.
This tool displays the PSID and the ConsoleID from a LV2 dump created using multiMAN’s mmOS or Rebug’s Toolbox.
How to use: Make a dump of your LV2 and drap & drop the LV2 dump on the tool’s window. It will show the PSID, ConsoleID and Target ID found in the LV2. You can drag & drop a dump of your flash too, but it only gets the ConsoleID.
RAP Management Tools
Keep your “rap” files collection clean with “remove bad files from exdata.bat” (a batch file that will remove the invalid “rap” files from your “exdata” folder) and delete_dups (a tool that will compare your rap files with the ones stored in another folder; deleting the duplicated files). Use them in conjunction with PS3 Game Integrity and PKG ContentID to keep your collection of raps organized.
TIP: My PS3 Keys tool can be used to create rap files, just entering the file name and pasting the 32 HEX digits.
LastGAME Customizer 1.0
This new tool takes advantage of the customization options that multiMAN’s lastGAME applet offers, allowing to create PKG files that mount games and AVCHD movies directly from the XMB, without having to launch multiMAN’s GUI (btw lastGAME = multiMAN without GUI).
Current version supports lastGAME 4.1 (loads Hermes payload for firmwares 3.41, 3.55, 4.21, 4.30)
Allows to connect to PS3 via FTP to retrieve the list of games installed on HDD or on external devices
Supports drag & drop of multiple folders (x:GAMES) to create multiple PKGs instantly
Supports command line interface (CLI)
Allows to mount ISOs (PS2, PSP, PSX, DVD, BDM) and load remote backups (DRM dongle is required)
Support direct boot (certain games only). Games that require BD mirror are not supported.
NOTE: Support for PSX ISO and 4.31 CFW (MiralaTijera) are not implemented yet on lastGAME 4.1

Following up on his NoRSX PS3 v0.1.9 (96b8a31) update, today PlayStation 3 developer deroad has released an application dubbed Install Package Homebrew for PS3 CFW users followed by v1.2 with details below.
To quote: Hi everyone, since I'm working on PSChannel (I don't know when it will be finished), I had to build a few features for it (I will not tell which they are). so I written this simple homebrew to install one or more PKG without using the XMB option. this app is useful if you, for some reason, can't use that option.. it will create on the XMB a new icon that will allow you to install that pkg.
How to use it:
Place in the main directory of your USB a pkg (it can handle up to 100 pkgs, and the max size for each of them is 4GB).. then plug in the usb on the ps3 and run the app.
It will search the usb from /dev_usb000 to /dev_usb009, once found it will start it copy and create the right files to allows you to install it from the XMB without the option.
THIS APP WILL RESTART THE PS3 ONCE FINISHED. I hope that this app can be useful (maybe also someday).
This new version allow to install packages also from the /dev_hdd0/package folder, just not plug in any USB and it will search in that directory.
Update: Install Package Homebrew Source Code (via devram0.blogspot.co.at/2012/11/install-package-homebrew-source-code.html) from https://twitter.com/Wargio/status/271654228471197697:
