Regarding the PS3 SCETool Scripts (linked above): This is a nice little set of batch scripts that someone made to work along side SCETool.
Use the GETSELFINFO.bat to figure out what version your EBOOT (my copy of Resistance 3 was ver. 3.65) is which helped explain why some EBOOTs couldn't be modified. Don't forget to grab the Conent ID if you're changing the EBOOT from an update.
Finally, in related news keperfear has made a GUI for SCETool stating that you will need to have at least .Net 3.0 Framework installed to use it.

It's just a great tool, a bit difficult to use for the average user. It is a multi-tool based on the fail0verflow tools and mainly it allows to encrypt/decrypt any elf/self with the known keys so far. I'm very glad the coder naehrwert makes it pubblic for all developers and not. I take this opportunity to thank him publicly.
