We prepared three different bases for the program (the one for PS3 is loaded by default, but one can choose others from the option menu):
The first one for PS3 (currently with all CFW/OFW (*.pup) and upadate packages *.pkg for Rebug and TB dongle).
The other ones function as examples and need to be completed.
Please be advised: in order for Custom Firmware Validator to work properly Microsoft .NET Framework at least ver. 4.0 is required. the program works on windows 7 - was not tested on XP, Vista or 8 (Developers/Consumers Preview).

A: Yes, it is, it doesn't contain any keys/hashes used to sign files.
Q: Could I modify my console using the program?
