I'm glad you've added support for retail .PKG files ifcaro. I wish I had seen this earlier so I wouldn't have to install a retail .PKG file on my PS3, open up a file manager, copy it to my USB and then put it on my computer.

+Rep man.

Cool tool ifcaro, will definitely try it out, also unzipping *.PKG's just take a few seconds on my system.

Cute little trick I did last night, involves downloading the GookTV debug pkg from the debug links.

Extract it, fire up the PS3FTP, and copy the NPHA800082 folder in /dev_hhd0/game/

Make sure does NOT have the second folder with the same name, because the FTP does NOT support CUT + PASTE lol.

Anyways, after that's done, you'll see a "TV" icon on your xmb, jailbreak or not.

enjoy :]

Thanks for the hard work so far. It is programs like this that will really help to shape the future of homebrew and developing on the PS3. I like how so many tools have come out in such a short amount of time.

Your idea seems interesting and promising, couple of questions though.

should we edit the pkg.h file or the pkg header? pkgview or unpkg to use for this? have you succeeded with this method?

thanks and keep them coming.

if you are refering to the games/themes/demos and addons here then no. as you still need to have payed for them with your psn account 1st. i doubt there will ever be a way to make content from the above link active on the system the .pkg is installed on you can install them but they won't work.
