      Description:
      ************
      "PS3 ISO TOOLS" is an all-in-one tool for ODE- and CFW-users and features:

      - ISO-Generator to convert PS3-Folder-Format-Game(s) 2 PS3-ISO-Format-Game(s) (splitted big-files automatically will be joined)
      - ISO-Extractor to convert PS3-ISO-Format-Game(s) 2 PS3-Folder-Format-Game(s) (big-files will be optionaly splitted)
      - ISO-Splitter to split single PS3-ISO(s) for use on a FAT32 device ("*.iso.0", "*.iso.1", ...etc)
      - ISO-Joiner to join splitted PS3-ISO(s) into single PS3-ISO(s)
      - ISO-Modifier to rename single or splitted PS3-ISO(s) according to game-info found in "PARAM.SFO"-file
      to add '[auto]'- and '[online]'-tags to ISO-filename(s) (regarding the 'webMAN_mod' functionality)
      to hide/un-hide parts of splitted ISO(s) ("*.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
      - ISO-Patcher to 'dirty' patch single or splitted PS3-ISO(s) to a lower firmware version (down to 4.20)... JUST FOR CFW FROM 4.20
      - Game-Patcher to 'properly' patch PS3-Folder-Format-Game(s) to firmware version 3.55... FOR ODE- AND CFW-USERS

      V2.0 - Changelog

      ********************** ENGLISH ***********************

      !!! MAIN INTENTION FOR THIS NEW VERSION WAS ODE COMPATIBILITY !!!

      - Makes some reasonable pre-selections depending on users PS3 system

      - ISO(s) are now created via "genps3iso_v2.5" instead of "makeps3iso" for ODE compatibility

      - Proper and complete ODE/CFW compatible game patching to 3.55 (even not all of the newer games will run on CFW 3.55)
      Patches PARAM.SFO, EBOOT.BIN, *.sprx, *.self and *.sdat files
      The new patch functionality can be found at "ISO Conversion Options"
      Note 1: To force patching use the "Always"-Option instead of the "If needed"-Option
      Note 2: Use "Just Patch..." - Option if you don't want to create an ISO... intended for Non-Cobra-CFW-Users

      - "Patch ISO"-function, which is kind of a 'dirty' in-ISO-patching), now patches always(forced) to any firmware version between 3.55 and 4.66
      Note 3: This will only work for CFW-User... so it's greyed out when u set up an ODE-system.

      - Automaticly generates backups of original/patched files as zip files for simple restoring (only for proper patching)

      - Excluding "PS3_UPDATE" folder from ISO is now optional

      - Creates missing "PS3_DISC.FSB" file

      - Readme updated

      !!! FOR MORE INFORMATION PLEASE READ THE README AND THE TOOLTIPS !!!

      Regards
      Rudi


      ************************ DEUTSCH ************************

      !!! DIE HAUPTINTENTION FÜR DIESE NEUE VERSION WAR DIE ODE KOMPATIBILITÄT !!!

      - Trifft sinnvolle Voreinstellungen abhängig vom PS3 System des Benutzers

      - Um ODE-Kompatibilität zu erreichen werden ISO(s) nun von "gensp3iso_v2.5" anstelle "makeps3iso" erstellt

      - Spiele können nun auf eine saubere Art ODE/CFW kompatibel auf 3.55 gepacht werden (auch wenn nicht alle neueren Games auf einer 3.55 CFW laufen werden).
      Gepatcht werden PARAM.SFO, EBOOT.BIN, *.sprx, *.self und *.sdat Dateien
      Die neue Patch-Methode findet sich bei den "ISO Conversion Options"
      Hinweis 1: Benutze die "Always"-Option anstelle der "If Needed"-Option um ein Patchen zu erzwingen
      Hinweis 2: Setze die "Just Patch..."-Option, wenn man nur patchen, aber keine ISO(s) erstellen will... gedacht für Nicht-Cobra-CFW-Benutzer

      - Die "Patch ISO"-Funktion, die eher auf eine 'dreckige' Art und Weise arbeitet, patcht jetzt auf jeden Fall auf eine Firmware-Version zwischen 3.55 und 4.66
      Hinweis 3: Dies funktioniert nur für CFW-Benutzer... für ODE-Benutzer ist diese Funktion deshalb deaktiviert

      - Erstellt automatisch Backups der orginalen/gepatchten Dateien als zip-Dateien, die man, zur einfachen Wiederherstellung des ursprünglichen Zustands des Spiels, nutzen kann.

      - Der Ausschluss des "PS3_UPDATE"-Ordners von der ISO ist jetzt optional

      - Erzeugt eine ggf nicht vorhandene "PS3_DISC.FSB"-Datei

      - Liesmich geupdated

      !!! FÜR WEITERE INFORMATIONEN LEST BITTE DIE LIESMICH UND DIE TOOLTIPS !!!

    • Usage:
      ******
      Pretty self-explanatory(I hope)... read the tool-tips


      Notes:
      ******
      - It's important to set up your PS3-System on main window, because PS3 ISO TOOLS will make some preselections depending from that.

      - To batch-convert games, select a folder containing several games in folder-format(recursive scan)

      - All other tools, with the exception of ISO-Patcher, support batch-operation as well. Just multi-select the ISOs you like to process.

      - 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

      - 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.

      - 'Proper' patching is possible only for 3.55, because ps3-private-keys above 3.55, 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 files
      to the game-folder and you're done.

      - 1st try your game(s) without installed game-update(s)
