51w ago - This weekend PlayStation 3 developer aldostools has followed up on his previous revisions with PARAM.SFO Editor v2.3 in PS3Tools, which allows for conversion PARAM.SFO (SFO) files to PARAM.SFX (SFX) files and vice-versa alongside the changes detailed below.
To quote: I just updated the PARAM.SFO Editor (included in the ps3tools.zip) It now can convert PARAM.SFX to SFO and viceversa.
Command line syntax:
PARAM_SFO_Editor.exe [<infile>] [options]
--help Shows this dialog.
--out=<outfile> Converts the input file to SFX or SFO file format
PARAM_SFO_Editor.exe param.sfo --out=param.sfx
PARAM_SFO_Editor.exe param.sfx --out=param.sfo

It's a command line tool and will automate some task and make the job of pkg modifying and generating a much easier. It's not perfect and I'm not a coder but when I have time and you guys like it I will update the tool.
Just unpack the .rar to .exe and install it where you want.
140w ago - Today Red Squirrel from Italian site PSP-Cheats.it (linked above) has released PS3 SFO Editor Linux Edition v1.0.0 for those who prefer not to use the previously released Homebrewed PS3 System File Editor v0.80 Windows version, followed shortly by a GUI version.
It's a Linux GUI to view and edit PS3's PARAM.SFO files. It does NOT contain any Sony's code or function, so it's a free homebrew at 100%. With the easy GUI you will can edit all PARAM.SFO parameters in just a moment, then the program will convert your choises automatically and it will write them in a new PARAM.SFO.
This is the first public release of this program and even if many deep tests have been made maybe there are yet some bugs. Use it at your own risk....
141w ago - Today neofar of Spanish site Elotrolado.net (linked above) has shared a PS3 homebrew application called Gamezplorer Backup Manager, which is a combination File Explorer and SFO utility to manage PlayStation 3 game backups on an external drive.
To quote, roughly translated: I'm developing a small utility to display the contents of the / gamez / in comodoa and without having to enter all the directories to find that each game is about or have prow there. Txt files to see the id of each game.
The post was to ask for suggestions... what else I can put in it... even thought to put a rating for games to be stored on a server so that people can see 'your backups' which are the best recognized.
First version available:
• Allows you to scan any hard disk
• 3 display modes
• Displays the file PARAM.SFO (still can not change anything)
• Shows what occupies each game
• Allow to connect via FTP to manage the internal HDD
• Allow to modify PARAM.SFO (Remote play, possibly other things)
• Allow access to the games directory (where PSN games are downloaded)
• Allow access to the SAVES...
