PS Multi Tools v6.5 AllOS Changelog:

PS Multi Tools v6.5 has been released with one new feature, the new "live" menu.

What are the advantages of the new menu? You don't need more to download new versions of PS Multi Tools for homebrews/firmwares updates! Everytime you open PS Multi Tools and there are new homebrews/firmwares available, it shows them automatically in the menu!

Other notes:

  • PS Vita Support is not available ATM and will not be available until a working CFW is released.
  • We're working on a native (real) Mac OS X version.

Hope you like this new feature!

  • Rebug REX Firmwares added!
  • 3.55 v3
  • 4.21 v1

Please redownload PS Multi Tools v6.5, you will get the new v6.5 r2 release automatically.

To load all games properly you need to chose the folder which contains the folder of the games. If C:\PS3\GAMES contains folders with different games then choose this folder not the folder of only one game.

How I use it: I choose the folder C:\Users\SvenGDK\Desktop\FolderOfBackedupGamesForDev\Games

The new Downloader from PS3 Live Menu 0.2.1 (released yesterday) had some problems downloading files over 20.48 MB, sorry for this.

Hi people! For those who are using or going to use only the PS3 part of PS Multi Tools, please check this

I released a lite version of PS Multi Tools called PS3 Lite Tools. But why a lite version of the PS3 part? Well the PS3 part is the most used part of PS Multi Tools and offers the most, the best and the newest homebrews and firmwares available on PS Multi Tools.

What can you do with PS3 Lite Tools?

  • Download the newest PS3 homebrews via the PS3 Live Menu

If your language isn’t included, then read this:

Available languages on v7 (languages marked with * require manual translation):

  • English (Standard) [EN]
  • Deutsch [DE]
  • Français [FR]
  • Letzebuergesch [LU]
  • Rumanian * [RO]

  • Polska * [PL]
  • Nederlands * [NL]
  • Portugues Brasileiro * [BR]
  • Portugues * [PT]
  • Espagnol * [ES]
  • Russian * [RU]

To translate manually you only need to use an other language in ".\languages" as template and replace the text after '=' and save as XX.ini (replace XX with language code) into the ".\languages" folder. Here's an example. (DE.ini - German - PS3 & PS2 parts are fully translated):

PS3 Multi Tools v7.1 AllOS

Well the release was too fast, I forgot to change something important in the language files so that no one can download more the PS3 Live Menu with any other language as English.

Users who doesn't want to use English as default language, please download PS Multi Tools v7.1! The PS Multi Tools v7 download will be replaced with the new one.
