132w 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.

Following up on his previous work, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer aldostools has made available a homebrew PlayStatiion 3 application dubbed PS3 FTP Client v1.0 (WIP) followed by v1.1 with details below.

To quote: I have made a new toy... these are the features:

  • It rips files (dummies, languages, update, etc) stored on the PS3 HDD/USB via FTP.
  • New simulation mode (shows the results of a rip)
  • If you have a folder with PS3 covers in your PC (eg. MCLUB jpgs), the cover is displayed when a remote folder that matches the titleid is selected (eg. BLES80608)
  • Displays a column with the description of the game (based on the title id)
  • It is a "full" ftp client based on wininet

It may require the ComCtl32.ocx and VB5 Runtime DLL. It is still experimental, some features are not complete, but at least the ps3 rip should work...

Final note: Use with care!! Remember that it touches the internal files in the HDD of your PS3.. The PS3RIP is safer.

PS3 FTP Client v1.1 Changelog:

  • New installer (installs icon on desktop and the required OCX).
  • New file finder (find a file or pattern in a folder and sub-directories)
  • New button to cancel transfers.
  • Bug fixes.

To quote: Since today sandungas talked about a bug in the old SFO Reader, i immediately fixed it (you can find it here: ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Dev_Tools#SFO_Reader).

Then he started talking about SFX. They are simple XML files that the ps3 can read as SFO. This is an example:

So i converted my SFO reader into a SFO to SFX converter. You can get it here: ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Dev_Tools#SFO2SFX

I hope that someone will find it useful. From:
