PS3 SFO Editor Linux Edition is a Linux GUI to view and edit PS3's PARAM.SFO files. It does NOT contain any Sony's code or function, so it's a free homebrew at 100%.
With the easy GUI you will can edit all PARAM.SFO parameters in just a moment, then the program will convert your choises automatically and it will write them in a new PARAM.SFO file.

Important Notes

  • This is the first public release of this program and even if many deep tests have been made maybe there are yet some bugs. Use it at your own risk.
    If you find a bug please contact me at my website or my email to report it.
  • This tool is an EDITOR, this means that it can only EDIT existent parameters in your PARAM.SFO files.
    It can NOT add or delete parameters in any way.
