Latest Version: v2.0 (November 27, 2014)
"PS3 ISO TOOLS" is an all-in-one tool for a complete PS3-ISO handling and contains:
Convert PS3-Folder-Format-Games 2 PS3-ISO-Format-Games (splitted big-files will be joined)
Convert PS3-ISO-Format-Games 2 PS3-Folder-Format-Games (big-files will be optionaly splitted)
Split single PS3-ISOs for use on a FAT32 device ("*.iso.0", "*.iso.1", ...etc)
Join splitted PS3-ISOs into single PS3-ISOs
Rename single or splitted PS3-ISOs according to game-info found in "PARAM.SFO"-file to hide/un-hide parts of splitted ISOs ("*.iso.1", "*.iso.2", ...etc) to extract and save "PARAM.SFO" and "ICON0.PNG" as "[ISO-name].SFO" respectively "[ISO-name].PNG" within ISO-folder
Patch single or splitted PS3-ISOs to a lower firmware version (down to 4.21)
It's important to set up your PS3-System on main window, because PS3 ISO TOOLS will make some preselections depending from that.
You can batch-convert all of your PS3-Folder-Format-Games, when you select your game-archive as source-folder(eg "X:\GAMES" or "X:\GAMESZ")
If you select a FAT32-drive as target for folder-format to ISO-format conversion the resulted ISO(s) will be split even without selecting the split-option
All other tools, with the exception of ISO-Patcher, support batch-operation as well. Just multi-select the ISOs you like to process.
As default ISO-name(s) will NOT contain special ASCII-characters 0-31, 126-255 and also NOT /\:*?"<>| ... This is to avoid problems with webMAN (You can allow usage of special ASCII-characters 126-255, like '™' or '®' in "ISO-conversion-Options")
After conversion/extraction a log-file will be shown, which compares size and number of files/folders.
'Proper' patching is possible only for 3.55, because ps3-private-keys above 3.60+, which are needed for signing, are not yet released to the public.
If you've choosen to extract "PARAM.SFO" and "ICON0.PNG"(Game-Icon) while converting to ISO-format, the 2 files will be placed hidden as "[ISO-name].SFO" and "[ISO-name].PNG" at target-folder. If you use webMAN copy these 2 files(per game) to "/dev_hdd0/tmp/wmtmp/". This will save you the effort to mount each game at least once to make webMAN display it's game-icon.
Make sure game-folder or any file inside game-folder isn't opened in any way before starting conversion.
Aborted batch-conversions could be continued. Already finished conversions will be skipped.
Find the options to patch a game to a lower firmware within the "Create ISO(s) Options". First try the default options("If needed"). Then game(s) will only be patched when it's firmware version is higher as the set firmware version of your PS3-System If PS3 ISO TOOLS does not patch anything and game doesn't work try the "Always"-Option. The "Don't Create ISO(s)"-Option is just for CFW-Users who wan't to just patch the Game(s) in PS3-Folder-Format without creating an ISO(s) subsequently
Two zip files will be created while patching. They will be stored in 2 different folders named "ORIGINAL_FILES_ARCHIVE" and "PATCHED_FILES_ARCHIVE". One contains backups of the original files which needs patching. And the other one the patched files. In order to restore just unzip the zip-file containing the original filesto the game-folder and you're done.
1st try your game(s) without installed game-update(s)
