    Edit : Latest version 0.05
    • significantly improved download/unpack speed (should be ~4 to 5 times faster).
    • better error message when config.txt file is missing last newline.

    1- Install this vpk with your method of choice

    2- You must create a txt in ux0 , folder pkgi, pkgi.txt inside this

    3- In this pkgi.txt, you need those information :

    This file is in very simple CSV format where each line means one item in the list:

    contentid,flags,name,name2,zrif,url,size,checksum

    where:
    • contentid is full content id of item, for example: UP2120-PCSE00747_00-TOWERFALLVITA000.
    • flags is currently unused number, set it to 0.
    • name is arbitrary UTF-8 string to display for name.
    • name2 is currently unused alternative name, leave it empty.
    • zrif is NoNpDrm created fake license in zRIF format, it must match contentid.
    • url is http url where to download PKG, pkg content id must match the specified contentid.
    • size is size of pkg in bytes, or 0 if not known.
    • checksum is sha256 digest of pkg as 32 hex bytes to make sure pkg is not tampered with. Leave empty to skip the check.
    4- The plugin NoNpDrm must be installed before starting PKGI

    5- The software will download PKG directly from Sony, extract and install it too

    Enjoy :)

    DLC download will be implemented soon.
    But updates you can download yourself. Nonpdrm games are able to update from live area. Note that some updates require 3.61+ firmware, in case off those, simply delete the update from patch folder/gameid

    Ok, even though it's a different system, it's just like CIAngel, freeshop.
    As in, no, not every single thing is available, each thing needs to be bought and the key dumped.
    Apart from updates.
    Like the 3ds, this will work indefinitely.

    Sony is not going to change the url of all the packages on their server, and not going to reencrypt them with a different key.

    About getting banned, well we have had piracy for a while for vita, this is just piracy in a better and cleaner way. I doubt bans will start happening.

    If this was possible on the latest fw, maybe a different story. Although I don't think for ps3 that Sony banned for piracy, only for cheating and homebrew?

    What this program does is not new, we were doing this for ps3, but with a tool on the pc. The reason that this tool is great is because it's on the actual console itself.

    This is more like CIAngel rather like freeShop since it's not actually a PS Store clone, just an on-console PSN fetcher like CIAngel is an on-console NUS fetcher.

    Yeah I started CIAngel, I know :)
    It was the first on console piracy app, which was really cool.
    freeshop is just the same but with more pictures really.

    Let's hope the development doesn't get cut short because the op can't behave in society... (freeshop)
