281w ago - Update: As expected, it's now released! Download: Homebrewed PS3 System File Editor v0.80

According to RichDevX's Twitter (linked above), Hellcat plans to release an updated Homebrewed PS3 SFO Editor in approximately 48 hours.

This comes roughly two years after the PS3 BRDGen Team released a similar application dubbed SFO-Edit v1.0.

According to the pictures (below), the homebrew PS3 System File Editor v0.80 will attempt to reproduce the functionality that Sony's PS3Gen (ps3sys.exe specifically) offers for SFO extension files... allowing you to view, edit, and save PARAM.SFO files.

We will update this post when it's actually released of course.

The most exciting part of this news is that SilverSpring is now working on PS3 stuff, which means hopefully he can help the PS3 Devs with reversing files that will actually lead somewhere, versus just cloning Sony's existing apps.

ok, so for all dont have official tools, with the SFO-Edit, debug users can make a good copy of there games

just for precision, a debug pkg have a signature ?
I thought only retail pkg have this lol

Hello everyone!

I don't want to sound dumb but aren't PS3 SFO files inside signed containers?

ho, good new

but useless for a ps3 game retail i think
because if he can reproduce exactly SFO file, i think he cannot make a perfect game BD

for debug users, it can be useful and maybe more easy than original

Indeed, as stated above it's basically useless until the PS3 is hacked... it won't allow you to run back-ups, homebrew, etc it is just a 'homebrew' port of Sony's copyright tools.

Honestly, if there was a good use for them the real Sony tools would just be leaked publically (Devs have had them since 2006) so these ports are really just for archival purposes.

When i first saw this i thought they found a way to play homebrew stuff on ps3 just like the above user. so from what i grasp this really wont do us any good until they get the ps3 hacked. Well it nice to be ready so if it does get hacked then a nice program like this will def make rebuilding ps3 img files easy.
