PS3 ConsoleID, RAP Management Tools & LastGAME Customizer Out


62w 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.

Download: PS3 ConsoleID / PS3 RAP Management Tools / LastGAME Customizer v1.0

Below are the update details, as follows:

PS3 ConsoleID

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).

Features:

  • 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

Special thanks to Dean Kasabow

Changes in 1.4:

  • Added support for lastGAME9 and lastGAME10 [COBRA].

I really liked the trueicecold's PS3 Game Updater 1.41, but I wanted a couple of new features... so I made my own "PS3 Game Updates 1.0"...

Features:

  • The title id field accepts many formats of title id (eg: title id with/without dash, content id, URL of pkgs, etc). Also supports search game by name.
  • The title id field also accepts the path of GAMES or the IP of the PS3 (to scan multiple games).
  • Show game patches 3.56+ in a different color (pink).
  • Auto-detects game patches already downloaded (search in PS3_UPDATE, PS3_EXTRAS, and in the default download path) and show them in gray.
  • Asks for confirmation to download patches 3.56 or higher. Required firmware version is appended to the name of the file (for 3.56+).
  • Show game cover and game description even if the game does not have updates.

PS3 Game Updates 3.0 Changelog:

  • Search updates by name of the game.
  • The title id field also accepts the path of GAMES or the IP of the PS3 (to scan multiple games).
  • Show game patches 3.56+ in a different color (pink).
  • Auto-detects game patches already downloaded (search in PS3_UPDATE, PS3_EXTRAS, and in the default download path) and show them in gray.
  • Asks for confirmation to download patches 3.56 or higher. Required firmware version is appended to the name of the file.
  • Show game cover and game description even if the game does not have updates.
  • Auto-fix downloaded PKGs that required firmware 3.60

Finally, in related PlayStation 3 homebrew news today MCLUB has made available PS3 FolderList Version 1.02 and stated the following, to quote:

If you have to, you can always search for the missing DLLs on google and download them.

Just drop them in the same folder as the .exe you are trying to run.

Following up on the intial release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer aldostools has updated his homebrew PS3 FTP Client application to version 2.8 with the changes outlined below followed by v2.9.

Download: PS3 FTP Client v2.8 / PS3 FTP Client v2.8 (Mirror) / PS3 FTP Client v2.9

To quote: PS3 FTP Client 2.8 (Updated 2012-06-09)

New feature:

  • Update the APP_VER in PARAM.SFO of the selected games to the specified version. This option helps to avoid the update screen when the game starts (for users with PS3 connected to the Internet), preventing accidental installation of patches that require FW 3.56 or higher. A backup of the original PARAM.SFO is stored as PARAM.SFO.bak. The new option works with local files and remote files via FTP.

How to use the new feature:

  • To update a single game, select the PARAM.SFO, right click and select "Update APP_VER in PARAM.SFO...".
  • To update multiple games, go to /GAMES folder, select the games that you want to update, right click and select "Update APP_VER in PARAM.SFO...".
  • Enter the new version (99.99 by default) and press OK.

To quote: This update to the PARAM.SFO can be performed manually using any PARAM.SFO editor. However, the main advantage of the new feature of the PS3 FTP Client is that it automates the tasks of download the file, update the SFO, upload it again, and make a backup of the original SFO.

The premise is that you first download and install the game patches for all your games. Use multiMAN or PS3 Game List or PS3 Game Updater to download the patches that are 3.55 compatible (

Can't start the program because MSVBVM50.DLL is missing
