    It's a thing now! I haven't seen this around here yet so I'm posting it. I'm currently testing it out. Made by this guy, you might know him already https://twitter.com/SilicaAndPina

    Here are his downloads, some demos, the vpk and a host for your PC. https://mega.nz/#F!p9dFGSKa!OG9PQby7MP7kqWjRe6BpIQ

    Note: this won't let you install anything other than PS Vita demos and official apps and (I think) PSP demos, as far as I know. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Edit: I just noticed it in the masterthread. I'm a doof.

    After a bit of testing, I can confirm it all works well. Here are a few tips for confused users.
    • This does not install .pkg files, but rather .pkgs files. It may be possible to extract .pkgs files out of the .pkg ones.
    • You need the PC installer as well. It installs .pkgs files over wi-fi, so the vita and PC software need to be opened at the same time at all times while installing.
    • Make sure firewall is not blocking the PC installer. Mine was initially blocked, but it only told me after it installed, and my demo didn't work.
    • After installing, you should receive a notification. If not, reboot your vita. Upon clicking this notification, the bubble will be installed. It doesn't require HENkaku, as it is just a legitimate, non-DRM demo.
    Here is where you can find everything, if you're lost. Silica is hoping that someone else can modify his installer into one that can install .pkg files, for convenience. Have fun!

    Yeah i renamed the pkg to pkgs because the pc program does not see pkg. How so we extract the pkgs from the pkg?

    You can find the current pkgs files here. As for pkg files, I found this on his twitter. But I cannot do it, as 7zip says it cannot extract my pkg files. He knows how to, and he replied to someone else that he will probably do a video on it sometime soon. I'm sure someone else knows how to, anyway.

    You misread that lots im saying .pkgs can be extracted with 7zip.
    .pkg can be extracted.. i just donno how. if someone can find a way to extract a .pkg but not decrypt it.. then
    we can convert .pkg to .pkgs!

    Wololo is hosting PS Vita .pkg xTractor 1.01, the problem is it only works on firmware lower than 3.61 and 3.60.



    Edit: If the PS Vita .pkg xTractor was always available than why the fuck won't people update it for newer firmware? The fuck?????

    if it was a simple matter of renaming then the program itself would be able to see .pkg and .pkgs
    Or wanting someone to release .pkg to .pkgs converter if you can extract .pkg it can be done!!

    Well, if it exists, someone on a lower firmware could use that and convert/extract all of these for us. I can't do that tho

    Oh, my bad! Yeah I see how your program does it now. Nice choice with the gamemaker software too :P


    Well, anything that it in .pkgs file. So any free psn apps and demos that don't have DRM, we don't know how to decrypt actual games yet. My personal interest is to play demos of games I really love, since I don't wanna update and lose HENkaku just to do that.

    Nop. We don't know right now, and that won't work. These are all the pkgs we have, for now.

    you mean .pkg from older firmware? hmm well it needs to not decrypt i tryed it with some old as pkg files and it decrypted them.. :/
    im not, 7zip doesnt extract .pkg

    (prohaps .pkgs (standing for packagesecound) wasnt such a good file extension)

    I know we can use the tool on older firmware, but we also need the tool to work on 3.60.

    we acturally cant get any new .pkgs either since we dont have PSN
    we are a little stuck

    HOWD U KNOW IT WAS GAMEMAKER :O

    i would post src code but GM81 is so easy to decompile i cant be bothered.

    :D gamemaker is not made for this sorta thing lol it mainly is just executing commands in cmd.exe

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    .PKGS come from PSN downloads...

    there was someone on hackinformer who posted a few download dumps for when the email trick was a thing ive mannaged to convert all of em to pkgs but if we can get PSN access we will be able to get lots more.
    we wont even need that giant list of .pkg from wololo XD im gonna get them all in .pkgs when i get access to PSN on 3.60 (or when HenKaKu comes to 3.61)
    also when PSN is an option ill have a option in the PC app to create .pkgs

    There is a way to get PSN access using a DNS spoofer made to trick the Store ETC into thinking you're on 3.61 I've been using it

    Here is a tutorial on how to use it, and the download is in the description (Note: Not my video)

    This is working now? I'm pretty sure PSVita Update Blocker stopped working for all of us a few days ago.
