Thanks for the hard work so far. It is programs like this that will really help to shape the future of homebrew and developing on the PS3. I like how so many tools have come out in such a short amount of time.

Your idea seems interesting and promising, couple of questions though.

should we edit the pkg.h file or the pkg header? pkgview or unpkg to use for this? have you succeeded with this method?

thanks and keep them coming.

So tell me something. Can i "open" the .pkg games files loaded ages ago on the net with this program? will it work with the current exploit?
if you are refering to the games/themes/demos and addons here then no. as you still need to have payed for them with your psn account 1st. i doubt there will ever be a way to make content from the above link active on the system the .pkg is installed on you can install them but they won't work.
