So...what are the actual benefits of using this utility other than maintaining the PS3 at a reasonable temperature? I ask since there are posts here saying one utility or the other with this fan speed functionality are causing them YLOD. Yet on first impression, I thought this was perfect for older PS3s with the tendency to suffer YLODs.
Great app! Hopefully I'll dodge YLoD on my 60GB using this. Just one thing though, I can't figure out how to edit and install custom Payload settings. I've edited them in the ps3_controlfan.S file to what I want them to be.
My issue now is rebuilding the .pkg so I can have customized fan speed. Can anyone give me any pointers? Much thanks.
