    Please. What is the difference between using one Method or another?

    ISA, pubkey, SSV3, Dynamic, 0 +2, OEM7.

    What time should I use any of them?

    First of all, thankyou for putting this together, i do however have one question and it is kind of confusing, the SLIC_SPL file you so kindly provided has all sorts of things in it.
    SLIC 2.1 and SLICS 2.1 for example, the SLIC 2.1 dir has faily simple choices being 4 Manufactures and thats it, the SLICS 2.1 dir has an incredible list of files and a subdirectory named 2.1 wich again has several manufacturers listed as subdirectories and some files in each, this doesnt really make it clear what choices have to be made.
    as for the SLP directory, they are just text files with the manufacturer name in it ?
    if you could kindly answer my question that would certainly help me allot more :)
