Magic PKG v0.2 Beta Arrives from Alegoria, Create PS3 PKG Files
Over the weekend Spanish developer Alegoria from DemonHades (linked above) released Magic PKG v0.2 Beta, a PlayStation 3 homebrew application that allows users to create PS3 PKG files.
Download: Magic PKG v0.2 Beta for PS3 / Magic PKG v0.2 Beta for PS3 (Mirror)
To quote, roughly translated: We inform this new application is being developed by Alegoria to easily create PKGs.
The idea is to convert the physical format games DG HG property to run directly from the HDD without having to undergo any manager games (Multimedia).
I discussed this in beta but from DHorg want to give our support to continue developing and improving this tool that looks great
Also below is CrCreator v1.0.1 by nounsevah which allows users to create your own cracks for games and programs.
To quote: The program can create cracks for games and programs. It is very easy and intuitive to use. It really is a few steps:
1. in the path load executable file (.exe) and select CRACK
2. depending on the type of processor (preferably going on Intel CPU), and file size, this process may take several hours (for me from 30 minutes to 3 hours to i7)
3. STATUS when the information will be successfully completed, click Create. Crsucc.exe newly created file will appear in place (folder) in which it is installed CrCreator
4. crsucc.exe copy the file to the directory with the game / program and run it.

too bad it's in Spanish, hopefully there will be a translated version uploaded soon. Thanks Alegoria!
That's just what I was thinking, awesome too, too bad its in Spanish and can't wait for an English version.
maybe he will release the source code, wouldn't be hard at all to translate & recompile.

¡¡¡pkg para disco duro interno!!!
Instrucciones de instalacion:

2, en tu ps3, entra en /dev_hdd0/game, verás que se habrá creado la carpeta HCES00xxx.
¡¡¡No toques esta carpeta!!! ¡¡¡No copies nada en ella!!!
3, En /dev_hdd0/game/ crea tú manualmente la carpeta HCES00xxx_ (Con el guión bajo incluido).
4, Copia el contenido de la carpeta USRDIR de el juego dentro de la carpeta que acabas de crear o sea la carpeta HCES00xxx_.
La Carpeta USRDIR No La COPIES!
Solo el contenido de esta, o sea el juego en si.

Do not touch this folder! Do not copy anything on it!
3, In / dev_hdd0/game / create the folder manually HCES00xxx_ (with the underscore included).
4, Copy the contents of the folder USRDIR of the game in the folder you just created or HCES00xxx_ folder.
Do not copy USRDIR folder!
Only the content of this, or the game itself.
5, Go to XMB and you can launch the game ...
Still no support for PSX PKGs.. Sad..
Once we can encrypt eboots it's gonna be sweet... until then... DAMN!
I wonder if these pkg games are updatable..
No, they are not.
This app is basically the same as EBOOT_FIX app, which I provided with multiMAN. The difference is that you don't need to do anything special with my app.
Just convert your backup to a PKG files with eboot_fix (simple drag&drop) and create shadow copy of the game via multiMAN's file manager (pressing [R3] over the game PS3_GAME folder).
