EVERYONE with a CFW that plays backups NEEDS these programs.
If everyone had these there would be no stupid questions like "Does this work on x.xx CFW?" Instead they would patch it themselves and find out if it works or not.
And by now every new game is coded for 4.50 or higher so everyone should also stop the stupid questions "does this work on 3.55?" IF COURSE NOT! Its not encoded for 3.55 so why would it work on 3.55?
Just upgrade to a newer CFW where the games do work on. If your on a lower CFW like Cobra 4.46 then you need to patch games so you use these programs. If your on 4.50 or above CFW then you dont need these as they already work.
It all comes down to how dumb you are. If your stupid you wont get these apps and you will ask stupid questions all the time and still be on stupid low CFW. If your smart you will be on a higher CFW and have these programs to help you out if you ever need to patch your games and you wont ask stupid questions filling up forums with stupid questions and repeated answers.
Just my 2 cents why you need these programs. They are really simple to use and really fast. By the time you load up your browser, loaded up the forum, asked the question, waited for an answer, replied you could already be playing your game.
