    How does one install an edat file to allow a license for a PSN game? I'm on the multiman file manager and see the edat file on the desktop interface. How do I install this file onto the ps3 itself? I try clicking the x button on the file while on the desktop, as well as pressing the circle button and copying the file. None of this removes the trial from the PSN game though.

    you have to put it in dev_hdd0/home/00000001/exdata/
    if that folder does not exist press o in multiman to create it

    Are these edat files for CFW4.21+ only?

    Most of them yes since they are a workaround for a new type of DRM.

    Thank you soooooooooooooo much. I've been in the soft mod community for a couple years now and the ps3 is way more complicated than the wii, ds or psp in terms of this issue. Thank goodness for this place and users like you though :D
