PKG/SPKG Tools Released

December 16, 2012

Here are some additional tools for the PlayStation 3 console. These Windows based tools, developed by Nathan_r32_69 and based on failoverflow’s tools, will convert regular PGK files to the newer format known as SPKG. Ever since firmware 3.56 and above PKG files are required to be in SPKG format in order to install correctly. One of the tools below will conveniently convert the older PKG file to SPKG for use on your 4.XX custom firmware console.
