Compatible with both E3 and ProgSkeet Nor dumps.
Checking your PS3 Nor Dump if it is Byte-Reversed or No.
Applying the correct downgrade patches depending on the Dump type detected.
Eliminating the need to byte-swap the dump in order to apply the patches.
Making the patching easier rather then using several programs to do it.
N.B: Always make several Nor Dumps and Validate your dump properly before proceeding to patch it and Flash it back. This link has all the info needed to validate the Dump: ps3devwiki.com/wiki/Validating_flash_dumps. A PS3 without a valid Nor/Nand Dump is non-recoverable.
