I really liked the trueicecold's PS3 Game Updater 1.41, but I wanted a couple of new features... so I made my own "PS3 Game Updates 1.0"...
-The title id field accepts many formats of title id (eg: title id with/without dash, content id, URL of pkgs, etc). Also supports search game by name.
-The title id field also accepts the path of GAMES or the IP of the PS3 (to scan multiple games).
-Show game patches 3.56+ in a different color (pink).
-Auto-detects game patches already downloaded (search in PS3_UPDATE, PS3_EXTRAS, and in the default download path) and show them in gray.
-Asks for confirmation to download patches 3.56 or higher. Required firmware version is appended to the name of the file (for 3.56+).
-Show game cover and game description even if the game does not have updates.
ps3gameupdates_noinstaller.rar (no installer, just EXE)
Required: MSVBVM50.DLL (not needed if you already use his other tools)
tthousand's notes - Currently, this tool is not working for me (and perhaps I am the only one experiencing the error); I am receiving Error code: '70' - access denied. I have already contacted aldostools about the problem, so feel free to try it out for yourselves and see if you have better luck than I did.
