    PS3 Game Updater v1.3
    Awesome tool that lets you update your games that you have on the PC before transferring them to the PS3! FTP Support.

    All credits go to trueicecold.

    Oh man!
    This is infinitely useful, since I'm not updating my PS3 until things smooth out.

    But, I just got a new harddrive, so I wouldn't have been able to get updates.

    Thanks for finding this.

    This would have been handy a couple if days ago, for that monstrous Heavy Rain Move patch. Good tool - do you just FTP across, and overwrite what's in the games folder, or is it an install file (like PS3 OFW updated) from USB?

    so how the software checks if the update is compatible with your dongle or CFW?

    I would like to know if this is possible as well?

    I may have to experiment with this [​IMG]

    It's a .exe that runs under Windows. You tell it where your games are then and it lists them along with their versions. You can then update them. Btw it's been updated to 1.2 which lets you scan your /dev_hdd0/GAMES folder via FTP and then update. [​IMG]

    I think it would yeah. But why are you using a modified eboot anyway? Still on 3.4.1? Do you have .NET framework installed?

    im still on 3.41 and use a ps3key with spoofed firmware.
    Pretty sure .NET framework is upto date but will check.

    So update to 3.55 and get one of the custom firmwares. You won't be able to run newer games on 3.41 forever you know.

    thats a personal choice, and theres no real benefit for using 3.55 CFW right now.

    It's not made by me. Runs perfectly fine here. Why don't you try googling that error.

    It isn't a PS3 homebrew. It's a Windows application. So just run the .exe in Windows.
