    Update: PKGView BETA 2 Extractor is now available, which includes a few fixes as outlined HERE.

    Download: PS3 PKGView BETA 1 Extractor / UnPKG with Source Code

    To quote, roughly translated: PKGView is a file extraction tool to debug PS3 PKG files. This tool 100% legal it contains no code Sony.

    PKGView has a graphical interface that simplifies the extraction of both individual files and the complete package.

    Note: This version is very limited and only allows you to extract individual files, it can not remove folders or create PKG files.

    Finally, UnPKG requires the VC++ Redistributable Package to run the exe file linked above. Props to emot for the news!

    So with this tool, it turns a retail .pkg file into a debug one (does this mean you can install, AND play it on a playstation with PSJailbreak/groove/freedom etc?).

    I do not believe so, it seems to only extract debug packages.

    Does this mean we will be seeing PSJailbreak/Groove compatible DLC much sooner than later?

    at the moment it doesn't really do anything that couldn't already be done, it just does it without relying on apps from the sony sdk.

    With this soon or later we might see jailbreak dlc or psn games. It is at least the first step in that possible direction.

    CJPC,

    We are hoping and waiting to turn our retail consoles to debug machines.. We expect more useful homebrews like the FTP soft because so far you gave the very important app to study the internal files... You're the man in the mission impossible (Now it's Possible thanks to you and the others).
