A Peek inside a PS3 PKG file!

324w ago - Had a little time over the weekend to play with some PS3 .PKG files.

Here is a peek inside a PS3 Package file, see below!

For reference, some files like executables are still encrypted even when unpacked from a .PKG file, sound files are not. PSARC files are definitely compressed and likely encrypted as well.

Just wondering, since you can upack one, why can't you pack one with different files inside? can this be done with retail pkgs? Thanks, and also any updates on the Keyvault project, i think everyone is keen to know! :-)

AND thanks for all the hard work!

It is a program that does it automatically, it is not done manually.
where can we get this program? i mention ps3unpkgr. is it homebrew (opensource) program? i assume (since it has not any extension), that it is not a sony-signed .self.

sorry, cjpc. but what is the program to unpack .pkg? or you unpack them individually by hands?
