September 17, 2010 // 10:37 pm - Update #2: jeffma has now released PS3 Game Update Finder v1.1 which allows you to to download PS3 game update packages via PC.

Update: PS3 PKG Fast Unpacker 2.0 is now available for those interested with a brief changelog posted HERE followed by PS3 PKG Fast Unpacker 3.1 with a changelog HERE, PS3 PKG Fast Unpacker 3.2 which can check PKG files information and PS3 GUI Toolbox v1.0 which is detailed HERE followed by PS3 GUI Toolbox v1.1 detailed HERE.

Today jeffma posted a PS3 PKG Fast Unpacker homebrew application on (linked above) for those seeking to unpack PlayStation 3 PKG files really fast.

Download: PS3 PKG Fast Unpacker Homebrew Application

It is similar to the recently released PS3 PKGView and UnPKG file extractors / unpackers, and to use it simply click the big button and select your PKG file.

To quote, roughly translated: "There is a similar procedure before the call PkgView.exe But the program can not bulk unpacked, unpack and often wrong.

The device can be quickly unpacked all the files once unpacked. Self-made program can only unpack and debug pkg. Can not unpack the pkg downloaded from the official PSN."

PS3 PKG Fast Unpacker Homebrew Application Arrives

Anyone know how to repack multiple folders into a Psarc file? It seems to only do single folders

Thanks for submitting this xbox1080, since it just does what people can do from their Web browser with this guide though I am just adding jeffma's PS3 Game Update Finder v1.1 to the first post here vs a new thread.

xbox1080 hi again.

I couldn't repack to pkg. Maybe it's very easy but I couldn't make it. Can you make a video about this subject ?

Hi Xbox1080,

My English is not good and I searched about my situation but I couldn't solve.

My problem is this; I can't repack the opened .pkg files. Can you explain more clear or do you have any video about packing the opened pkg files.

I only want to repack opened pkg file. Opening the pkg file is very easy but I can't repack. I want to change picture (ICON0.PNG). Thanks.

As things progress we can do a new thread in the Site News on his releases, but for now post new versions in this thread or Submit the next update as Site News so it creates a new thread that is linked in this section and we can then close this older one.
