So, I'm not into the PS4 scene or anything. At first I just was looking up ways to port ps4 themes to PC and make it work there. I don't own a PS4.

I need help in the process of extract, I have some .zip of some themes that already have that 128kb fpkg with the official pkg, I don't know if this makes the extraction easier.

Also It would be useful to have any sort of PS database of all types of content for any console but I only encountered NOPAYSTATION, you can download pkg from there but I'm just searching for a content (list) database that includes removed content from the store, don't care about the download I just need the info

The only user that helped someone before with something like this that I can find is @godreborn , so it would be helpful if you could help me in the process, but since I don't own a PS4 or PSVITA or anything so that's my only limit.

Thanks in advance :)

If it’s an official pkg you need to dump the contents, once installed, on a PS4 7.55 or below…. Sharing such content…. Not allowed.
Sorry, I don't understand. The official pkg with that other fpkg inside must be installed with Hen (maybe?) and then dumped back from PS4 to PC converted as a solely FPKG to be able to extract the files in PC?

No. Install both pkg’s, once unlocked, then ftp in to dump decrypted contents. If possible. No need it re-package it.

So, once you install it the pack is unpacked or unlocked, then fpt the files to PC, it will be a extracted folder or an unlocked .pkg?

Is that the only way to do it? A PS4 involved?

you can see the full process in my ps4 tutorials (Pinky's Ps4 Tutorials) or @KiiWii 's tutorials in the aio thread. making unlock pkgs that work even with official theme packages is the only purpose to psdlc anymore, since an update to the store makes downloading other content no longer work. they're generic licenses like the C00 licenses from the ps3. in both instances, all you need is the content id to make one. however, you already have that part done.

Ok now I quite understand how this works, but since I don't own a PS4 to make my own themes in PC with the files, at least I need to archive them, some themes got nuked in the store (like Dishonored ones) so I'm worried that some could dissapear from the net

If you could help me find a good database? Since NoPayStation don't have PS4 stuff, not even info

Do you think any user here or other forum could be open-minded to dump the files for me if I give them the unlocked FPKG? Privately

Thanks for the help!

I have no idea about a database. I was dumping themes for people (they'd give me the theme files), but I stopped doing that.
