    [Answered] Need info on .PKG

    Sponsored Links
    I really need someone to explain me the structure of game patch .pkg's and what is the best method to extract the contents.

    Thanks in advance
    Best Answer - Posted by internetfloozy:

    "make_package_npdrm.exe" is a component of the PS3sdk (1.6 is partially available via torrent etc, 1.92 is around but i don't think readily available to everyone)

    It is use to unpack debug .pkg files but last I played with it there was no way to unpack a retail .pkg

    This is a post that I made back in January picking apart a dev pkg that has some decent info as well.

    Also Zerotacg as a nice template for 010 editor that will label the sections of the dev pkg to make things easier to find.

    Thanks for that Boss, would you be able to link me to a guide that I can use to extract the contents.

    There are several PUP unpackers around, but as far as I'm aware there is no PKG unpacker (or guide on extracting the contents of a PKG file) available yet.

    That's for a different type of .pkg extension files, sadly not the one the PS3 uses or there would have been a guide on it years ago.

    Oh.

    *.pkg = Installer script / Installer Programm-Package

    One of them, the PS3 must use. Or they are just faked and be emulated if my phat lady needs it

    Boss can someone take a look at this guide from Michael and see if it would work:

    How to unpack and pack PKG's, on Linux, and now Windows!

    You need a root account in Linux for this! I used Ubuntu 10.04. The SDK is for Windows as well, but there's no readme for the files. So I set up VMWare with Ubuntu so I can use Linux inside Windows.

    For Linux:
    In Ubuntu, Fedora, Yellow Dog, etc, type "sudo apt-get install yum" in Terminal.
    Type in your root password.
    Now, look for a repository with PS3 binaries. You can get some from PS3Bodega.
    You need the PS3 SDK kit as well, the full one. You can't get the full 600MB one from pretty much anywhere unless you search. I can't give a link since it's not allowed.
    With yum and the RPM installed, now you can just type "yum ps3unpkgr" in Terminal instead of code editing.
    When you get the SDK and install the binaries (the RPM is right there), you can use "ps3unpkgr -x <PKG name>" and unpack everything.

    To pack it into a PKG again, use "ps3unpkgr -c <PKG name>" and it will pack.
    I'm not going to sit and explain everything so thoroughly if you don't know how to do it. If you really are wanting more, reach me another way.

    To do this in Windows:
    Download the PS3 SDK.
    Go into the "host-win32" folder.
    Go into "bin."
    In Command Prompt, drag "make_package_npdrm.exe" into the prompt, and use -x <PKG name> to decompress. Use -c <PKG name> to compress.
    This unpacker will only work for certain PKGs! Luckily, the patch falls under this category.
    As I have tried and failed 4x
