Added support for fewer PS3 models that didn't work with version 1.0
Added the Geohot/Wutangrza compatible package as requested by some users.
Rogero PS3 Buttons Layout Changer v1.0
This is a small application for the PlayStation(R)3 that can change the default Buttons Layout (Cross or Circle being the default Enter/Accept Button). It is useful for the JPN PS3 model owners to make "X"/Cross the Default [Enter/Accept] Button like the USA/EUR PS3 Models.
It is compatible with PS3 FW Version 3.41 & 3.55 only.
It checks for the PS3 FW version automatically and can detect it even if a spoof was applied.
Many errors checking routines are applied before changing any parameters.
I wrote it for my personal use, I do have a JPN PS3, and I thought of sharing it because it may help other users too who wants to change their JPN PS3 Buttons Layout in a simple/quick way.
