Sponsored Links
181w ago - Today PS3 Package Manager v0.9 Installer for PKG files is released by Cyberskunk of the Rebug Team.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

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..

Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 hacker Cyberskunk of the Rebug Team has updated PS3 Package Manager v0.9 Installer to Installer v1.1 for PKG files.

Download: [Register or Login to view links]

Fom the Rebug page: This is an update to the 'Package Manager 0.9 – Installer' NOT 'Package Manager' to make it a little safer by putting in some measures to avoid accidental end-user errors when installing.

Package Manager is a replacement for the standard ★ Install Package Files option under 'Game' in the XMB for both 3.41 and 3.55 firmware. It 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 1.1′ package and install it on your PS3.
2: Run 'Package Manager 0.9 – Installer 1.1′ and choose your option.
NOTE: Rebug and OFW/CFW have slightly different icons in their RCO's. THIS IS THE ONLY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TWO OPTIONS BELOW FOR EACH FIRMWARE
3: The installer will AUTO EXIT when it is finished.
IMPORTANT NOTE: It can, in some circumstances take upto a few minutes on older PHAT 256mb NAND PS3′s.. BE PATIENT.

The only way it can be downloaded is from the Rebug site in the first post (or from Eurasia/PS3-Hacks/PSGroove it seems), but as the Rebug release page doesn't mention 3.41 it's always appreciated when someone on the team (evilsperm, Cyberskunk, etc) keeps users here in the loop as well and +Rep!

Exactly why we tell every last site not to hotlink our work... Visit our site and maybe you'll get correct info.

DO NOT INSTALL THIS ON 3.41

Just a quick heads-up. This isn't working for 3.41 CFW as of right now. Don't install if you're on 3.41 CFW like me.
