PS3 Package Manager v0.9 for PKG Files is Released


162w ago - Today PS3 Package Manager v0.9 Installer for PKG files is released by Cyberskunk of the Rebug Team.

Download: PS3 Package Manager v0.9 Installer

To quote: Package Manager is a replacement for the standard ★ Install Package Files option under 'Game' in the XMB and allows for the install and deletion of .pkg files from 'dev_hdd0/packages', 'dev_usb/packages' and the standard ★ Install Package Files locations. In addition to this, your downloaded PSN content will appear under this menu instead of cluttering your 'Game' menu with uninstalled content.

INSTALLATION:
1: Download the 'Package Manager 0.9 - Installer' package and install it on your PS3.
2: Run 'Package Manager 0.9 - Installer' and choose your option. (Rebug and OFW/CFW have slightly different icons in their RCO's. THIS IS THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO OPTIONS BELOW)

For Official Icon Set:
Press CROSS to INSTALL Package Manager 0.9
Press CIRCLE to UNINSTALL Package Manager 0.9

For Rebug Icon Set:
Press SQUARE to INSTALL Package Manager 0.9
Press TRIANGLE to UNINSTALL Package Manager 0.9

The 'dev_hdd0/packages' folder is created automaticly when you choose one of the above install options but if you delete it you can use the below option to create it again.

Package Folder Creation:
Press START to CREATE the 'dev_hdd0/packages' folder

NOTE: 'Package Manager 0.9 - Installer' can be uninstalled once you have installed Package Manager.

PACKAGE MANAGER OPTIONS:
Navigate to 'Game' in your XMB and click on ★ Package Manager (It will be where ★ Install Package Files used to be). You will find three options.

★ PlayStationŽNetwork Content
Manage your downloaded PlayStationŽNetwork Content.

★ Install Package Files
INSTALL package files from Storage Devices and your PS3.

PS3™ Hard Disk - (dev_hdd0/packages)
Package Folder - (dev_usb/packages)
Standard Package Location - (Standard ★ Install Package Files locations)

NOTE: The 'Install All Packages' is only available by pressing the TRIANGLE button when the 'Standard Package Location' option is highlighted because the PS3 will only install ALL packages from the root of a storage device as of the moment.

★ Delete Package Files
DELETE package files from Storage Devices and your PS3.

PS3™ Hard Disk - (dev_hdd0/packages)
Package Folder - (dev_usb/packages)
Standard Package Location - (Standard ★ Install Package Files locations)

DELETING FILES:
1: Highlight the file you would like to delete and press TRIANGLE. The sidebar should appear.
2: Press CROSS on either Unlink or Unlink(Folder) (Both do the same thing for now).

NOTE: Any files that you have Unlinked WON'T disappear from the XMB until you exit the directory!!

TODO: The delete feature while 100% working still needs a little work on the appearance (icons need fixing etc..) and maybe have a look at implimenting a Storage Device<->PS3 copy feature.

Enjoy.. Cyberskunk

BIG THANKS to Devil303 from TeamACiD for the small line of code that assisted with the delete function..

My *Install .pkg icon is gone, during same xmb session prior to any reboot !? Leaving app/home/ps3/game only. i installed this .pkg manager just a few days ago and have used it with no problems.. i'm running Rogero CFW and i have just installed it on my console but i think i should get rid of it.. Someone HELP... Should i re install CFW or Recovery Mode, FTP? This is a new one for me...

UPDATE: Once installed, DO NOT delete The game data for the .pkg manager even though the website says its ok.. it will remove your "Install .pkg Files" icon entirely.. I went into: hdd0/game/ and found the .pkg manager that i had just installed on my Fat PS3 and copied it to the same directory as the Slim with the missing "Install.pkg Files".. after going back to XMB, "Install .pkg Files" was back again... I was about to shake my head at Team Rebug... Its all good now....

after successfully installing using official icon set screen went black i restarted the ps3 got past the ps3 logo then when it comes up to the xmb it loads for 3 seconds then freezes. no icons, nothing.. only the wallpaper shown tried the recovery menu and done every option no luck, any ideas on how to restore it back?
Ya same here on cfw 3.55 was going to install this to delete a pkg update for GT5 that stopped it from working so i could reinstall GT5 the way I had it before and now it seems i'm bricked.

can someone confirm if the above is what bricking is or any help would be appreciated.
