Error: unable to load dat-key

Error: No gameupdates can be found! (with privacy patch)
Solution: It is either privacy or no privacy, gameupdates are looked up by vsh.self ("") everytime an application is started. You can still install gameupdates externally, e.g. when you download them with the PC instead (e.g. Killahs AIO Tool and PS3 Game Updater).
Solution2: Disable only the task option - effectively making it no longer privacy patched.
Error: wrong args should be patch_lv1 patch_self self
Solution: Sometimes caused by having the application in a folder location with spaces in the path, try putting PS3MFW Builder in C:\PS3MFW (or any other location without spaces).
Solution2: Sometimes caused by running the application with limited user restrictions. Try elevating rights (e.g. try administrator)
Error: User wants an /insert well known 'CFW' e.g. Kmeaw/ like MFW firmware or use that as source PUP
Solution: Take official firmware and select the following tasks accordingly to your target requirements:
- Patched LV1 hypervisor to allow mapping of any needed memory area (Wutangrza, Waninkoko, Kmeaw, graf_chokolo)
- Patched LV2 kernel to add Peek&Poke system calls to LV2 (Wutangrza, Waninkoko, Kmeaw, graf_chokolo)
- Patched PKG installer to allow installation of pseudo-retail + debug PKGs (geohot, Waninkoko, kmeaw)
- Patched Application launcher to allow running of unsigned applications (Waninkoko)
- Add new icons to XMB to add Install PKGs + /app_home (KaKaRoTo, geohot Waninkoko, Kmeaw)
Error: Error running script: invalid command name "34" and/or Error running script: invalid command name "35" (when using Kmeaw, Rebug etc as input PUP and selecting privacy [34] and/or spoof [35])
Solution: Take official firmware and use the solution mentioned above
Error: No applicable update found (when trying to install the PUP)
Solution: Use Recovery Mode and make sure the PUP is in the correct location.
