As always, keep in mind these PUP updates will currently NOT install on a retail PS3, and so they are intended for examination and comparison purposes only.

We have 100% confirmed that running this updater on a retail PS3 will not damage it, however, it will give the following error before the installation completes: The data type is not supported. (8002F029)

To quote: File changes compared to 4.20 - These files have changed since the previous version e.g. by new version string, bug/crash/exploit fixes, ...

Finally, in related news below is a PS3 Restore Utility Backup / Restore DEX Console Guide (via ps3ita.it/hack/ripristino-utilita-di-backuprestoresu-console-dex-by-ps3ita/):

After making the conversion of the PS3 console from retail (CEX) in debug (DEX), some may have noticed the lack of utility of backup / restore (accessible from Settings -> System Settings -> Backup Utility) that allowed you to save all content (accounts, photos, music, games, etc. with the exception of trophies) on external media to back recovery in case of failure / change of the internal hard disk.

Therefore PS3ITA, thanks to our mythical Rancid-o, provides a simple method to restore such function by means of easily installable file pkg.

We found a way to restore Backup Utility in DEX:

Just install and start this pkg: [Register or Login to view links]

There is also a pkg for uninstall: [Register or Login to view links]

This is because if the option backup utility does not uninstall many options are not displayed in "debug settings". Oh I forgot has only been tested on cfw 3.55 DEX.

There are KLicense tools which can calculate them or brute force them

For those curious the game is Bonk: Brink of Extinction and is complete (unreleased, but complete)

This is a VERY out of the box question. I have a game that never got released for PS3, I have a CFW PS3 (plus some dev units which can already play the game...but thats beyond the point). I need to sign the game + pkg it for installation. I have got the game running but it just bails with no error.

Second part of my question is: The game has apparently 3 pieces of DLC that were planned, the DLC files seem to be in place, just need to be activated. I don't know if the DLC is active or not until I get the game working, but lets say it's not... what would I need to unlock it.

Keep in mind, this game NEVER saw the light of day and I may be one of select who even have it... so PSN downloads are not possible.

If someone with real experience with doing this could help or knows someone who can help that'd be awesome.

NOTE: This is a NPDRM game, obviously. I have the EDAT files...but don't know the KLicense for it.
