Many of my users are regularly requesting me for providing the complete process of converting PS3 Games to PKG Files. You can easily install your PKG file in your PS3 Phat, Slim, and SuperSlim console up to CFW/PS3HEN 4.89. If you are a newbie and you don’t know about PS3 Super Slim Jailbreak. Then this article “How to Jailbreak PS3 SuperSlim OFW 4.89” will help you to Jailbreak your PS3 SuperSlim console. So, let’s get started
Note: All the games will not convert into PKG, maybe some games converted but not working on PS3
How to make PKG files
- Download and extract PKG Maker Tools on your PC
- After extracting, you’ll get 3 folders: CFW2OFW V11, PS3_Generate_LIC.DAT, and make-backup-pkg
- Make sure your game folder has LIC.DAT Folder (Mandatory)
- If your game folder does not have the LIC folder, you can create it with the help of PS3_Generate LIC.DAT. (Open PS3_Generate_LIC.DAT and drag and drop your game folder to PS3_Generate_LIC)
- Now open your GAME_FOLDER and copy PS3_GAME and paste it into the CFW2OFW V11 Folder
- After that drag and drop PS3_GAME Folder on the CFW2OFW Helper
- A process will start automatically; wait for the completion of the process and after that press any key to exit
- Now a new GAME_FOLDER created. Inside it, you can see two folders BLUSxxxxx and NPUBxxxxx
- Copy or Cut both folders and paste them under the make backup pkg
- Now run “do” exe, and wait for the process completion
- Once the process successfully is done, you got three pkg files (GAME, PATCH, LICENCE)
- Copy or cut all 3 pkg files and paste them into the PS3xploit-resigner-master folder
- Now one by one drag and drop all three pkg files on the ps3xploit_rifgen_edatresign (After completing process you will get signed PKG files)
- Keep the signed pkg files and delete previous all pkg files
- Now copy or cut all 3 new signed pkg files and paste in your USB stick
- Plug out USB stick from your PC and plug in your PS3 near to BD drive
- On PS3 go to HAN Toolbox > HAN Enabler
- Now go to the Package Manager > Install Package Files > Standard
- Now install Game, Patch and License pkg files on by one
- Your game is ready to play. Enjoy!
Once you converted ISO (PS3_GAME) Folder into PKG format. You can install it on any exploited (PS3HEN/CFW) PS3 system via USB or FTP.
According to my experience, up to 95% games can convert by following this method. Hard to say about 5% games. if you try to convert any game with this process and get a black screen it means you can’t convert that game (it’s rare).
Nowadays you can run MultiMAN on any exploited (PS3HEN/CFW) PS3 system. MultiMAN allows you to install Package files and transfer games from your USB to your internal hard drive.

Can I install more than one game through TrueAnscestor Backup Retailer. Because everytime I restore a backup previously installed games are gone. For example I need GTA V, FIFA 15 and Watch Dogs. Is it possible?
Yes I have installed GT6, MK and tekken together, but make sure you calculate the size that can fit in the flash drive you will use
How long did it take?
good question it took 3 hrs to restore
How do i solve the error:
Caution: the number of directories was restricted. (Max: 4096)
Won’t the PKG files be too large (e.g. Last of Us) to copy them to the Fat32 drive of the PS3? Or will the files be split?
yes games under 4gb can be installed directly, above that will have to use package linker or backup injection
wont we need RAP for this to activate for this method on OFW ? will it work on just HAN over OFW 4.82?
I also wanted to appreciate the great work sirajul :)
you are bringing all information and links to one place which definitely helps first timers like me.

You are claiming that 95% of games work in this method, but 50% of games do not have update files, CFW2OFW does not convert games that do not have updates.
