• PS3 Hacks, Software , 23.07.2012

    I’m sure you’re all familiar with the quote “It’s the simple things that matter,” and today homebrew developer PsyOil did that quote absolute justice by releasing two simple-yet-effective applications that will download most .PUP files faster than you can say Jack Robinson - or at least as fast as you can click your left mouse button.

    PUP Download Archive (GUI)

    The first on the runway is a program he calls PUP Download Archive, which conveniently displays a list of every firmware ever released and all you have to do is click on the one you want and… there ya’ go. The .PUP file with be downloaded and placed in the same directory as the program. Hooray! What’s more to be said? Want firmware 3.55? Click it. 4.11? Click it. Click to your hearts content. Just don’t delete the program before the download is finished or else you won’t get your .PUP!

    On a click of a button a command prompt window will start downloading(from the PS3Dev Wiki) the pup to the same directory as the program. Do not delete wget.exe or else the pups will not download! D:

    Its pretty simple, list of firmwares (OFW) on click they download to the directory your placed the Two files in.

    Now, you’re probably wonder why someone would ever need this.
    I download and delete pups very often, so i made this program to make it a bit easy to find a pup right away..

    Making a SEX/DEX downloader soon 

    PUP CEX/SEX Downloadable Archive GUI

    The second program he showcased is one he calls PUP CEX/SEX Downloadable Archive GUI, and it’s long title isn’t the only thing special about this beauty, because what really makes it shine is it’s ability to download CEX, SEX and DEX firmwares. The interface is reminiscent of it’s predecessor however when downloading DEX firmwares, you will need to type in the exact name of the desired firmware before clicking the download button.

    Once again, i suck at GUI programs.
    I’ve made a command prompt version of the same program, where you just enter the name of the firmware version exmp “4.10″ and it starts downloading the firmware on command (4.10p for patch pups)

    Should i just release that or stick to the ghetto lookin’ gui?

    [Download PUP Downloader Archive]
    [Download  PUP CEX/SEX Downloadable Archive GUI]

    UPDATE 1:

    Homebrew developer PsyOil has effortlessly fused both applications into one with a brand new UI to match and has also included link that allows you to donate to PS3DevWiki.

      Wouldn't it be ideal for a new person to go read the FAQs? Actually, I think it's obligatory according to the rules to first read the introductory FAQs before posting anything.

      Anyway, as a new member, it most certainly would be ideal, to first poke around and look a bit, and understand the place in due respect, before starting inquiring anything. All you asked about, can be answered by � an hour of looking around, AND you would not be so rude as to demand any of us would take your time on you, when you wouldn't even take your 30 minutes, to spare us of hooking you up with everything.

      What kind of ****ing rude behavior is that you show? Have some respect.

      TL;DR: Look around and you will get your answers, and you wouldn't come out as rude, very stupid, ignorant or as a person that didn't give a **** about us, and just wanted your answers, if you did that.

      Also, its actually quite fun to look around trying to understand these things, try it.

      (Hint, the big site banner actually says "click here for tutorials")
      (Another hint: GregoryRasputin in here just made a GIANT tutorial filled with questions and answers that might be relevant to you, you should go look it up, even if you do find your answers)


      Sorry if I come out rude, you are just not the first one to ask that or the latest.. And I cannot understand why you would not seek these answers out yourself - or atleast try at first, when it actually requires time/work of us to do it for you..... If you know what I mean..

      Anyway Welcome! Hope you will stay stay (And enjoy your stay! :D).
      (Which the majority would if they keep hanging around after finding their answers... besides, if they do, they would also be the first to hear, when some new program or development is out )

      Edit: Removed some of my swear words to make it PG13.
      Edit: Here is the tutorial from GR, it might be a bit hard finding (perhaps) if you aren't used to the people and forum architecture in here: http://www.ps3hax.net/2012/07/ps3-ja...ised-for-2012/

      So this app "hot links" to the ps3devwiki? is that allowed?

      I am VERY much in doubt about it. Just checked PS3Devwiki and there is ads on it, so they are partially or completely financed through ads, so by using it, you potentially take some of the money away that ps3devwiki earns to sustain itself. I wouldn't use it for that simple reason, whether it was allowed or not.
      Besides, you download an application from a website in order for it to download a patch from a website.. wouldn't it have been easier to just access the website and download the patch to begin with -_-? Besides the application needs to be updated, to be able to download a new patch, when one is out.............................. So everytime a new patch is out, you would have to redownload the application to download the new patch... Would be easier just learning where to download the patch AND ps3devwiki has a quite easy understandable design..

      Yeah devwiki says

      These downloads are provided for you at acceptable use. Downloads are currently unrestricted and unlimited for your convenience.
      Please do not abuse this service: no hotlinking, no leeching.

      And this is why i don't create apps for the scene. Users here are not grateful with anything. The apps i would create would be simple and effective like this one. It makes it more convenient to download the FW than having to just go to the website all the time. Any work put in to creating apps is time put into the scene and if i started creating apps i would have stopped long time ago! People need to learn some manors! The users who complain if they don't like it then go and create your own app for the scene!

      As a side note to the dev, the look up for the links associated to the files do not always work. For some reason the look up writes letters within the link multiple times and as a result it doesn't link to the correct files. Also with the host addressing, sometimes i receive unknown host addressing.

      WIN 7
      I ran your app with and without admin privileges.

      Other than a couple of trolls who just like to start crap, nobody has put down the app. I believe some valid statements were made specifically the parts (if so) about taking ad revenue away from the website and/or the hot-linking issue.

      Nobody complained about it, it's a genuine comment pertaining to the creator and the devwiki. I would totally use this myself, sometimes my morals go out the door on weird things too.

      Pros:

      Quick, easy, accessible, at your fingertips convenience.

      Cons:

      hot-linking, potential (minimal) loss of revenue for devwiki ((from not seeing the ads) which however a LOT of people use ad-blockers so.. does it really matter?)

      There's gonna be pros and cons to all things. That's the balance of the universe. Can't have lopsided boobs everywhere, what fun would that be?

      Again, I have to stress, it's just constructive criticism.... people need to learn how to take it and use it to their benefit instead of see all of the negative about it (again, there's always pros and cons, good/bad, up/down, flacid/erect).

      Thanks @PsyOil

      Granted most people here are trolls. But as you stated, most use adblockers/script blockers(myself included). But there are so many noobs and trolls that make up their revenue. So i really do not see that as an issue. I think devs need to be thanked more for their own time used in creating apps, instead of users sending comments such as "useless app" etc.

      That's why I used some parenthesis.. it's kind of moot when you can just block ads. However, still a valid argument

      Agreed. There was a point in time where there was an "I <3 PS3 Devs" movement going on where people had showed their support; although as soon as information hoarding and deception happened that flew the coup pretty fast.

      There are still "good" devs (as opposed to "evil" devs) in the scene, and I'm more than willing to bet they know who they are (no need to name names + I forget).

      Something to note though is that (I believe) there will always be more people putting things down and saying negative than there will be positive. It's just the way the world works. Always seems to be more negative things than positive; BUT the good always outweighs the bad. Negativity sucks but it's so easy. That's why there's so much negativity. It's easy to get pulled into it. But to be happy/positive, is much harder and takes a hell of a lot more dedication and practice!

      If you ignore the negativity and the jerk offs, you will be happier You may be a bit more lonely but... would you rather spend your time with penis heads than good people?

      Totally agree with everything you've just said! Penis heads are a waste of space, much rather have a few "good people" then LOADS of "penis heads".

      I guess he could've asked them first. He still included a donate option though. If that's the consequence then okay I guess.
