To quote: yes, i made this nice app portable myself. no need to install anything, no activetcl nor the app itself or the keys. it is all integrated and it runs from any directory.

i did it cause i had problems with the temp folders and i have a SSD, which doesn't like heavy temporary writings. i've already talked about it with kakaroto and he said i should open a new thread, so no problem from his side. he also gave me 2 new plugins to extract and change the coldboot_multi.ac3 and the coldboot_stereo.ac3, the bootsound from the ps3.

edit: thank you very much kakaroto, you're one of the best...
edit2: i don't know if it is important but i made it under winxp so maybe there are problems with vista/win7 as i cannot test it...

This portable app includes everything, Active TCL 8.5, the keys and 2 new plugins to alter the bootsound.

To run it you have to start the big "Launch PS3MFW Builder.exe" executable (47,7MB in size).

You can place the folder anywhere and run it so no need to worry and the tempfiles are created in the same folder.


If an error occurs, you have to restart the app as the temp files cannot be deleted if not.

Please don't touch the folder structure within %Pofile% and %Temp%. However, the extracted files can be deleted under:

"PS3MFW Builder\%Temp%\PS3MFW\PS3MFW-MFW\update_files"

"PS3MFW Builder\%Temp%\PS3MFW\PS3MFW-MFW"

"PS3MFW Builder\%Temp%\PS3MFW\PS3MFW-OFW\update_files"

"PS3MFW Builder\%Temp%\PS3MFW\PS3MFW-OFW"

To use the new plugins and alter the bootsound you have to enable only the options, the names of the files are set correctly. It is 1st "coldboot_stereo.ac3" and 2nd "coldboot_multi.ac3". During the modifying there pop up two messages to alter the files, but do not click "OK" yet. in this time you have to swap your ac3 file under:


From DanyL: I just moved to SSD too, and I got a tip for you - you can move the temp, desktop, my music (and so on) location, and keep your SSD's life a bit longer. Anyway, I followed kakaroto's advice and made a completely portable version.

All the Temp files go to the "Temp" folder inside the program's folder. The keys stored now in the folder "ps3keys", also inside the program's folder.

It does work in Windows 7 64bit. Enjoy!

Runs fine here. Fixed the rar corruption, by extracting with 7-Zip. Just made my first 3.41. I'll install in a few moments.
