Multi PKG Tool to Decrypt / Extract PS3, PSP and PS Vita PKG Files

Multi PKG Tool to Decrypt / Extract PS3, PSP and PS Vita PKG Files 550°
154w ago - Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation Vita developer PsDev has made available a Multi PKG Tool which now allows users to decrypt and extract PS3, PSP, and PS Vita PKG files.

Download: Multi PKG Tool v.1.0.0.1

To quote: This Tool can decrypt and extract Playstation Vita, Playstation Portable or Playstation 3 retail pkg.

It uses the PSP/PS3 AES key that is used to decrypt and extract PSP/PS3 retail pkg. However, No longer can Playstation Vita PKG over beta/retail 1.00+ be decrypted and extracted with the PSP AES key.

I would like to give a big, big, big thanks to Mathieulh, Because I used his AES Engine to decrypt PS3 retail pkg, Without that it could have taken me way longer to make this tool.


 

PS3 4.10 CFW / MFW Includes Install Package Files by TechnoDon

PS3 4.10 CFW / MFW Includes Install Package Files by TechnoDon 1300°
158w ago - Here is my first PS3 4.10 CFW (Custom Firmware) / MFW (Modified Firmware) which includes the Install Package Files option in the PlayStation 3 XMB for those interested.

Download: PS3 4.10 CFW / MFW with Install Package Files by TechnoDon ( Warning: Read Notes below before installing!)

For those curious, this PS3 CFW / MFW is a modified 4.10 Kiosk / Shop Firmware via PS3MFW Builder intended for installation on PS3 3.55 Retail consoles.

Changes:

1. Custom Coldboot
2. Kiosk/Shop XMB restrictions have been removed so PlayStation Home/PlayStation Store work fine.
3. Modified to allow installation of retail signed packages

Notes: DO NOT install this unless you have an E3 flasher or Progskeet type device to downgrade your PS3 to 3.55. Unfortunately 3.55 signed PS3 homebrew does not install/run. Also be aware it doesn't load any PlayStation 3 game backups so you will need to have the game disc to play them.

To Unlock the XMB: Hold...
 

Video: Adding 'Install Package Files' on PS3 4.00 Dev_Flash Mod

Video: Adding 'Install Package Files' on PS3 4.00 Dev_Flash Mod 1300°
162w ago - Below is a video demonstrating my PS3 4.00 Dev_Flash modification, which simply allows users to install Retail signed package (PKG) files from the PlayStation 3 XMB.

Note: This modification does not allow the installation / usage of unsigned content / PS3 homebrew etc. This is purely a convenience hack and is aimed for use by those who have hardware flashers which allow dual boot.

After technodon's work creating a modified kiosk dev_flash which lets you install retail signed package files. The restrictions of having to use kiosk firmware inspired me to find a way to add "Install Package Files" for retail firmware.

This is hack does the following things:

  • adds "★ Install Package Files" and "★ /app_home/PS3_GAME/" to "GAME" on the XMB (allowing the user to install retail package files anytime they want)
  • adds other debug functions which are small but still there
  • does not give access to "★ Debug Setting" (reasons for this are explained below)

Installation instructions:

This installation procedure is the similar to technodon's original dev_flash hdd swap procedure

For this...
