PS3 FTP Client v2.8 Homebrew PlayStation 3 Application Arrives

137w ago - 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: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (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 (<3.56).

Once you have your games updated with the latest patch, use the PS3 FTP client to update the APP_VER of your PARAM.SFO to 99.99 (or any number higher than the latest patch version of your game).

When you launch your game, it will compare its APP_VER vs the version TITLEID-ver.xml in the Playstation server. If the APP_VER is lower than the version specified in the XML in the server, the game will ask for update. If the APP_VER is higher, the game will continue loading and will not ask for update (saving you from a potential mistake: update the game with a non compatible patch).

99.99 should be enough for almost all games. However, some games may require specific APP_VER. For these ones, don't change the PARAM.SFO or rename back the PARAM.SFO.bak to PARAM.SFO.

You can update the APP_VER without download & install the patches too.

Those who got no Option to install pkgs, HOW WOULD THEY INSTALL THIS?
Those who can, dont need this.
Those who want to install multiple pkgs, use the feauture of PS3-EXTRA or self-merge existing ones.

So the question is: WHO NEEDS THIS? No offence, but also no respect!

Cheers
Blade

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.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]

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).

v1.2 Changelog:

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 [Register or Login to view links]:

I decided to release my source code (linked above) of this homebrew. to compile it, you will need PSL1GHT V2.

if you want to copy partially or entirely the code, please, add me on the credits. Have fun.

Today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer aldostools has released PS3 Cheats Editor version 1.1 followed by v1.2 which works with the recently released PS3UserCheat PS3 Cheat Dongle v2.3 Update from oct0xor and v2.02 with some more revisions below.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] by gingerbread

To quote: Some features...

  • Read/save cheats database for ps3usercheat (st.dat)
  • Search/filter games
  • Sort database by column (Title ID, Name, Version, number of cheats, region) (database is saved in the selected order)
  • Added option to rearrange the position of the games in the list (use Alt+Up arrow / Alt+Down arrow in the listview)
  • Exports selected games as text files
  • Imports text file (exported format) and append to current database
  • Allows to save the description in TITLE ID + NAME + VERSION (without < > and region)
  • It accepts the file as a command line parameter (useful to open through batch files or associate extensions)
  • Support for drag & drop
  • Lots of keyboard shortcuts

The tool keeps internally the version read from the file. If you edit a game's title, you will notice that it includes the version (from the description). The program will parse the edited text and will search for ##.## (eg. 01.05). If it is found, it stores 01 05 in the database. If the pattern ##.## is not found, it will use 01.00 by default So, it's important to always include the version in the game's description.

That was exactly the part that deank helped me to figure out. BTW I updated the icon for the PSN games in the program.

Build 1.4:

0- The import now merges the cheats. So if user A has 3 cheats, and user B has 2 cheats (1 common, 1 different). User A imports cheats from B (or B imports cheats from A), in both cases the database should contain 4 cheats.
1- Added extension .ps3cheat
2- Added a suggested name for export
3- Use F2 to edit individual cheat title
4- The OCX is required. I could remove it, but it would be a lot of work, due I would have to program all the functions of the OCX. You can make a SFX and put the OCX and the EXE, the EXE will automatically register the OCX.
5- TXT format can be used for that
6- Fixed the window title (it said PS3 Game Editor instead of PS3 Cheats Editor)

Changelog:

PS3 Cheats Editor 2.6.2:

Edits the cheats database for ps3usercheat (st.dat). Allows export/import cheats to the database in text and binary formats. 3.55 CFW is required.

Now the cheats compatible with the EBOOT hack can be identified easily. This version includes a cheats database for 520 games compiled by gingerbread at ps3hax and a link to his discussion thread. Thanks to SkillerCMPnow the EBOOT patcher supports code type: 0T00 (8bit), 1T00 (16bit), 2T00 (32bit), 4T00 (Serial codes), 5T00 (Copy codes)

Special thanks to skillerCMP, gingerbread, BahumatLord, haxxxen and bungholio for the tutorial about converting CU codes.

Build 2.2.0.1:

  • This version includes a cheats database for 414 games compiled by gingerbread at ps3hax and a link to his discussion thread.

Build 2.1.0.3:

  • This version includes a cheats database for 409 games compiled by gingerbread at ps3hax and a link to his discussion thread.

Build 2.1.0.1:

  • Support info files in .pdf, .tif, .rtf, .html and .txt

Build 2.0.2:

  • This version includes a database with 381 games compiled by gingerbread at ps3hax and a link to his discussion thread.

Build 1.5.02:

  • I updated the tool to install the st.dat. So, it is not longer required to extract it from the PKG

Build 1.5:

  • There was an issue importing the games that started with "PSN" and I fixed the bug in the build 1.5

If you find bugs, they are also features. This is a sample code for Dragon's Dogma BLES01356. All credits go to xtatu at the CMP Forums
