So with this tool, it turns a retail .pkg file into a debug one (does this mean you can install, AND play it on a playstation with PSJailbreak/groove/freedom etc?).
Boss, thank you for the updates PS3NEWS on fire!!
I do not believe so, it seems to only extract debug packages.

Just in the middle of reinstalling windows and VM will try it out later. Thank you.

We are hoping and waiting to turn our retail consoles to debug machines.. We expect more useful homebrews like the FTP soft because so far you gave the very important app to study the internal files... You're the man in the mission impossible (Now it's Possible thanks to you and the others).
