Original ‘Install Package Files’ Fixed Back on Rogero 4.30 CFW

January 2, 2013

Install Package Files
Szalay, with the help of “hidden Man“, has released a nice fix to bring back Install Package Files (IPF) to the newer 4.30 Custom Firmwares. The instructions (one manual, one automatic) are in the readme at the download link below. It’s really nice the have the original Install Package Files method back. :)

Rogero , team Rebug, and other CFW builders… you all might want to take a look at this :D

Maybe it’s just my opinion, but the Install Package via multiman and other Install PKG application are not the greatest options.

Here’s how to TRULY add back Install Package from the VSH directly like before in v3.41/v3.55 for CFW build’s v4.30.

add_install_package.txt

Code:

** All patches inside dev_flash tar files OFW: v4.30 PS3

1) install package:

Find Data:	F821FED17C0802A6FB8101103B810070

Replace With:	386000014E800020FB8101103B810070

explore_plugin.sprx
1) install package

Find Data:	F821FED17C0802A6FB8101103B810070

Replace With:	386000014E800020FB8101103B810070

category_game.xml
1) Add to the end like before:

	<View id="seg_gamedebug">
		<Attributes>
			<Table key="game_debug">
				<Pair key="icon_rsc"><String>tex_album_icon</String></Pair>
				<Pair key="title_rsc"><String>msg_tool_app_home_ps3_game</String></Pair>
				<Pair key="child"><String>segment</String></Pair>
			</Table>
		</Attributes>
		<Items>
			<Query key="game_debug"  attr="game_debug" />
		</Items>
	</View>

	<View id="seg_package_files">
		<Attributes>
			<Table key="host_device">
				<Pair key="icon_rsc"><String>tex_album_icon</String></Pair>
				<Pair key="title_rsc"><String>msg_tool_install_file</String></Pair>
				<Pair key="child"><String>segment</String></Pair>
				<Pair key="ingame"><String>disable</String></Pair>
			</Table>
		</Attributes>
		<Items>
			<Query
				class="type:x-xmb/xmlpackagefolder"
				key="host_device" attr="host_device"
				src="#seg_packages"
			/>
		</Items>
	</View>

	<View id="seg_packages">
		<Items>
			<Query key="host_provider_host" src="host://localhost/q?path=/app_home/&suffix=.pkg&subclass=x-host/package" />
			<Query key="host_provider_bdvd" src="host://localhost/q?path=/dev_bdvd&suffix=.pkg&subclass=x-host/package" />
			<Query key="host_provider_ms" src="host://localhost/q?path=/dev_ms&suffix=.pkg&subclass=x-host/package" />
			<Query key="host_provider_usb0" src="host://localhost/q?path=/dev_usb000&suffix=.pkg&subclass=x-host/package" />
			<Query key="host_provider_usb1" src="host://localhost/q?path=/dev_usb001&suffix=.pkg&subclass=x-host/package" />
			<Query key="host_provider_usb2" src="host://localhost/q?path=/dev_usb002&suffix=.pkg&subclass=x-host/package" />
			<Query key="host_provider_usb3" src="host://localhost/q?path=/dev_usb003&suffix=.pkg&subclass=x-host/package" />
			<Query key="host_provider_usb4" src="host://localhost/q?path=/dev_usb004&suffix=.pkg&subclass=x-host/package" />
			<Query key="host_provider_usb5" src="host://localhost/q?path=/dev_usb005&suffix=.pkg&subclass=x-host/package" />
			<Query key="host_provider_usb6" src="host://localhost/q?path=/dev_usb006&suffix=.pkg&subclass=x-host/package" />
			<Query key="host_provider_usb7" src="host://localhost/q?path=/dev_usb007&suffix=.pkg&subclass=x-host/package" />
		</Items>
	</View>

2) Add into place where you wish for app_home and install package to show up:

			<Query
				class="type:x-xmb/folder-pixmap"
				key="seg_gamedebug"
				src="#seg_gamedebug"
				/>
			<Query
				class="type:x-xmb/folder-pixmap"
				key="seg_package_files"
				src="#seg_package_files"
				/>

F.A.Q.

How Does this Work?
“The reason install package was blocked in later than 3.6x firmwares, was because from 3.6x and higher, they started checking for valid tokens, the new ecdsa signed tokens and then flags to enable Install Package to work. The patch done just fakes the SPRX’s into thinking the token flag is set.”

Is This Safe?

“as far as being dangerous, the creator of CFW should be able to decrypt said SPRX files and replace the patches and recrypt/resign files properly and package inside the PS3UPDAT.PUP for all future builds”
