Mirror Link 2: http://www.mirrorcreator.com/files/1...Pack.rar_links How to: Step 1:
Download or create a working Game ISO with GenPS3iso 2.1 and download the Cracked DLC for that game.
For this example i will use the following:
GAME ISO : Injustice.Gods.Among.Us.PROPER.PS3-DUPLEX (BLUS31018 ISO)
Cracked DLC : Injustice.Gods.Among.Us.All.DLC.Unlocker.PS3-DUPLEX (BLUS31018 DLC)
The Duplex Injustice DLC unlocker includes:
Unlocks all DLC skins
Unlocks zombie mode (dlc) --> settings / zombie mode ON/OFF
Unlocks red son campaign (DLC/skin) ---> stars labs mode / last page /
20 new missions
After making a ISO for the game (With Original EBoot files if required ) Copy the ISO to your PS3_GAMES folder and make sure that it is fully working. Install all of the game data installs and game updates from the PSN. If the game is fully working move onto Step 2.
If you require a original untouched Eboot file then visit here: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/ps3-cf...ry-124746.html Step 2:
Unpack the DLC with Winrar so you are left with a PKG file: injusticealldlcBLUS.pkg
Download and run PKGView v1.3 on your PC.
Click file / Open and browse to the location of the PKG file.
Once opened you should see a table of contents like this:
Right click on the first folder in the table (BLUS31018) and click "Extact to source folder"
Navigate to your source folder and copy the extracted PKG folder to a FAT32 Formatted USB Stick. You can now remove the USB Stick from the PC and plug it into the front USB port of the PS3. Step 3:
Copy Comgenie's awesome file manager 4.46 ISO to your PS3_GAMES folder of your Cobra ODE. If you are using kataroto's Eleganz Manager then ignore the above since CAFM is bundled with the Eleganz Manager. Launch Comgenie's awesome file manager ISO with the Manager of your choice (My preference is MultiMAN by deanK but any Cobra ODE compatible Manager will work). Step 4:
Now that CAFM is loaded you should see 2 lists of locations. We will use the list on the right to navigate to the USB stick and the list on the left to select the location. Starting on the right navigate to dev_usb002 by pressing down on the D-pad and click x to open (The USB number may differ depending on which port you use), You should see the extracted pkg folder BLUS31018.
Next Press left on the D-Pad and navigate to the dev_hdd0/game/ location and press X . You should now see a list of several game data installs with the BLUS and BLES numbers. Scroll through the list until you find the folder for your game (BLUS31018) and leave it Step 5:
Press right on the D-pad to move the pointer back to the BLUS31018 folder on the USB Stick and press "0" .You will be asked if you want to copy the folder to the HDD0 location click "START" button on the PS3 Controller. The files will then be transfered from the USB to the internal hard drive of the PS3. Step 6:
Quit CAFM and Eject the drive to go back to your ISO Manager , Navigate to your game ISO and launch it. Install any game updates if required (See "Important Notes" below for more information) Enjoy your DLC
Proof of Zombie mode DLC working on my Cobra ODE: Important Notes
If the game ISO crashes (Double beep) after launching with the DLC installed let the PS3 reboot and it will automatically rebuild the database. This should fix the crash and you will be able to restart the ISO again.
Some DLC might not work because certain files may need to be installed to locations other than dev_hdd0/Game/ that we cannot access on official firmware.
If your DLC contains a PARAM.SFO file that is lower than the game updates that you installed when you first launched the ISO then you may be forced to re-install the game update again. You can usually avoid this by deleting the PARAM.SFO file that is located inside of the extracted PKG file.
Some DLC may require a PS3 Database rebuild. This can be activated by booting into recovery mode on the PS3. If your DLC BLUS/BLES Number does not match your game ISO number i would suggest trying to find the correct DLC with the correct number... although just copying the USRDIR and hacked Edat/DLC files should work on all regions. This also works for cracked Online passes.
Sometimes a cracked DLC will come in 2 PKG files (One is the DLC and the 2nd PKG file is the Cracked files) To install these you will need to extract both PKG files with PKGView then copy the contents of the crack pkg to the DLC pkg before transferring them to dev_hdd0.
The tutorial does look like a lot of work just to get some DLC on the PS3 but once you have done it 2 or 3 times you will find it real easy. Special Thanks:
Thanks to Harry Oke for his tests / Youtube videos on the 3K3y, PS3 Crunch staff / Members for a place to join together and help make the Cobra ODE the best on the market, Rowan (Rowjack1993) Jackson for pointing me in the right direction, Duplex for the ISO/DLC, magneto (+ Team Cobra) and all of the PS3 Devs behind the software that i used to create this tutorial. Keep up the good work guys. PS3PSN~NPEB01417.zip
Ok... after my first test of a PSN game - Flashback (Duplex Release) This is strange lol Here is what happens... It seemed to unpack perfectly and i could see the extraction progress. I went to the XMB to see if i could see the game installed = Failed
I went to the Game data utility and i could see the folder install = NPEB01417 (That worked but missing icon - Unable to run the file from there)
So i went back to mM and looked inside of the folder and this is what i found... NPEB01417 folder = correct
Inside of that is USRDIR and PARAMSFO (Almost correct but missing several of the other files) missing files = all of the ICON0 pngs , PIC1 files and TROPDIR folder (I assume you should be able to see those folders in mM and even launch the PNG files to view them)
Inside of USRDIR i see the EBOOT.BIN Then two more folders... One called FLASHBACKGAME and the other is called BINARIES (Missing GAMEDATA1.EDAT) The FLASHBACKGAME folder is missing 8 PS3TOC txt files and the MOVIES folder.
So it seems to be "part working" but missing several files and folders during the extraction. I checked the PS3PSN~NPEB01417.zip that i created on my PC and all of the missing files are in there.
So i copied the missing files from the original unpacked version into the folder but ran into another issue , It only displays under game data utility and will not launch but the ICONS are now visable (After manually adding them myself)
: Did you try to rebuild the PS3's db after copying all the missing files?
: You sir are a legend... It works... Flashback is installed and on the XMB (Without using any demo pkg files).
So to install PSN Games =
Use multiMan to create the folder
Extract and Copy contents of PKG files to the new folder
Rebuild data base

How to install PSN games for the Cobra ODE. deank
has recently updated his amazing Backup manager to support folder creation under dev_hdd0/game/
Now it is possible to create the folders needed for cracked PSN titles and allow them to appear on a OFW PS3.
Download the latest version of multiMan here: multiMAN 4.50.01 BASE with SHOWTIME4MM (for BD-R and ODE).iso
Download and extract the PSN game you wish to install. For this tutorial i will be using Flashback PSN PS3-DUPLEX
After extraction i am left with two files:
Open PKGView 1.3 and use it to open main PKG file. (File/Open/ and navigate to the PKG files)
Right Click on the main folder at the top of the structure and select Extract to source folder.
Once extracted do the same for the cracked PKG duplex-flashback.crack.pkg
Next we need to merge the two folders.
Copy the Extracted Crack PKG folder NPEB01417 and paste it over the original Flashback PKG folder NPEB01417.
You will be asked if you want to copy and replace the files during the merge select OK.
When everything is merged you will be able to copy the merged NPEB01417 to a FAT32 Formatted USB Stick.
Insert your FAT32 formatted USB stick which contains the files to your cracked PSN game
in one of the front USB ports of your PS3.
Launch Multiman and navigate to "File Manager / mmOS" and press X
Highlight PS3 Root and double tap X
In the root head to /dev_hhd0/ Double tap X
Navigate to /game/ Double tap X
You should now see a list of installed folders (Depending on what you have installed on your PS3)
At the top of the list press "O" and you will be asked to "Create New Folder" Press X to confirm
Then use the "on screen keyboard" to type the name of the game , File name stucture is important so i suggest you use the same name as the folder that you unpacked from the PKG file(s)
(So for Flashback it would be a folder called NPEB01417)
Go back to the root of the PS3 in mM OS and select dev_usb00X (X = the port number of your PS3)
You should now see the NPEB01417 folder with the cracked content. Press O and select copy then navigate back to dev_hdd0/game/ and select paste by pressing O again.
Wait for the process to finish copying the files to the PS3 and shut down the PS3.
Next we enter recovery mode to rebuild the data base:
Press and Hold the PS3 Power button and keep it held down until it turns off.
Press and hold the PS3 Power button again until the PS3 makes a Two Beeps sound.
You should now be entering recovery mode follow the onscreen prompts and select the "rebuild database" option.
Let the rebuild complete and your PSN game should be available under the game section.
Some games that need access to other locations still will not work using this method.
This will only work on games that require all files to be copied to dev_hdd0/game/ folder
Thanks to deank for his work on multiMan and a big shout out to kamingrandeu for help on the final piece of the puzzle. Awesome work guys.
