214w ago - 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

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).

Once the PKG has been created a pop will open with instructions on what to do:

Instrucciones de instalacion:

¡¡¡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.
5, Sal al XMB y ya puedes lanzar el juego...

A disfrutar.


Which says:

Attention, read the installation instructions carefully.
This has required pkg eboot.bin editing!!!
PKG for internal hard drive!!!

Installation Instructions:
1, install the pkg.
2, on your PS3, go into / dev_hdd0/game, you will see that the folder is created HCES00xxx.
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 ...

Enjoy.
