Convert full ps3 game (.pkg format) to demo?
I was wondering if there is a way to convert full ps3 game (.pkg format) to demo ones by hex editing them. In that way we can install them without error from the ps3 because psn will recognize them as demos.
This might be a silly question but I can’t answer it

nope, not possible, you have to think of pkg-files as a container like rar or zip... encrypted, signed.
demo/retail mode isnt tagged in those anyways... just debug/retail.
full ps3 games usually require some activation too (another pkg containing the license) also changing pkg files via download doesnt work anymore.

its the same problem like always.. to convert a full game into a demo, we need the keys to sign the file.
and those we don't have. the keys are crypted and wasn't found till yet.
if they will be found, there is no need for converting full games into demo because then we can sign our own burned games/isos what else, that the ps3 accept them.

Ok guys, thanks. Sony has thought everything about hacking... PS3 is the most protected console I have ever seen.
