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!

I think i find a way to Decrypt Retail PKG. The Source Code contains
pkg.H
#define PKG_TYPE_RETAIL 0x80000001


You can copy
typedef struct _pkg_header
{
u32 magic; //pkg magic ("\0x7FPKG")
u32 type; //pkg type
u32 header_size; //pkg header size
u32 unk1; //some pkg version maybe
u32 unk_size1; //size of block at end of data starting at 0x100
u32 file_count; //count of contained files
u32 pkg_size_h; //pkg size high
u32 pkg_size_l; //pkg size low
u32 file_tab_h; //file table offset high
u32 file_tab_l; //file table offset low
u32 data_size_h; //data size high (data at 0x100 - 0x80 bytes)
u32 data_size_l; //data size low
s8 titel_id[48]; //title id
u8 qa_digest[16]; //the encryption/decryption key for debug pkgs
u8 unk2[16]; //unknown, maybe some key
} pkg_header;

And Change it to typedef struct _pkg_file_header
I know there is still "qa_digest" Problem but you can read it out with Sero.exe: megaupload.com/?d=ZHXJHJ8E

If the PKGViewer detect Retail it open a Window and ask for QA..
Enter QA and PGK do the rest :-P

*enjoy* p.s My Progskills are too bad
