PS3 PKG Tool v0.5 is Now Released!

Sponsored Links
231w ago - Update: PS3 PKG Tool has now been updated by cfwprophet to v0.6 for those interested followed by PS3 Acid v1.0 as detailed HERE!

Hi folks, Today I wanna release my little batch PS3 PKG Tool v0.5 which can do a lot of things:

Download: PS3 PKG Tool v0.5

• Installing of MinGW, msys, msysDTK and setting the environment for msys
• View PKG info
• View PKG Contents
• Unpack PKG
• Decrypt EBOOT.BIN
• Edit .ELF
• Encrypt .ELF
• Edit SFO
• Generate PKG config file
• Repack PKG

It's a command line tool and will automate some task and make the job of pkg modifying and generating a much easier. It's not perfect and I'm not a coder but when I have time and you guys like it I will update the tool.

Just unpack the .rar to .exe and install it where you want.

Have Fun!

this could be a novice question, but where can i get the pkg files to be able to open them up? I've been looking everywhere for a couple dynamic themes and couldnt find them.

Does this let me make my own pkg?

I didn't follow up all the details on the jailbreak, since I got my PS3 back just today v3.15 so does it turn a retail into a debug? and you can only run debug selfs? if not for unpacking / decrypting retail packages with the groove + ftp you could just get some files in the download queue and check the files mentioned in the thread, the format is easy to figure out you have to remove the title id in the download-task so you don't get an error if you replace the link/file with another one.

if anyone is going to give it a try and needs some help with the format of the tasks, drop me a note.

And then, why would we want this if we got the originals that do the same in the first place?

No, it does not decrypt retail EBOOT.BIN's, nor will it unpack retail PKG's.

To elaborate, when attempting to "decrypt" EBOOT.BIN from a game update, you get an invalid file input error. When attempting to unpack a retail .pkg, you get an empty dir with the serial # (title id/game id) eg the dir BCUS12345 is made, but it's empty.

This PKG Tool is essentially a mobile version of the SDK, couple apps from host\win32, so because these tools originally couldn't decrypt or unpack retail eboot.bin/pkg, there's no reason to think this tool would.
