    After a critical bug was unfortunately found by some user's of this popular utility that makes quick work of extracting your PKG files the dev arrives with a fix. The bug would occur if the process of extracting was aborted and would delete the output directory, depending on the output directory it could erase and cause the user's a giant headache. Developer Rudi Rastelli acknowledge the issue and took care of it with this update of version 1.4.2. Anyone using Any previous versions of this utility are advised to update, this will ensure you do not experience this bug that could potentially wipe your drive or important folders clean.

      Changelog V1.4.3

      • [GUI] "Extract Selected Items"-button is greyed out if no pkg is loaded
      • [GUI] If you've select no item it tells you to do so before the output-dir selector comes up (it was the other way around in previous versions)

    • PS3P PKG Ripper V1.4.2

      V1.4.2
      • [GUI] Fixed a critcal bug where output directory is deleted on abort even if it's not empty

      Now extraction will be done in a [TitleID]-folder which is created in the selected output folder
      (default extraction path is: "[path_of_pkg]\[ContentID]\[TitleID]\").

      On abort the [TitleID]-folder will be deleted first and only if the selected output folder is empty it will be deleted as well.

      Regards
      Rudi

      @Rudi Rastelli does your tool support psp remasters?
      Pkgview doesn’t support it :( it leaves out the important big files
      An example is mh3 remastered
      If you need help adding it’s support, I can help you :)

      PKG ist a encrypted file format from Sony, you need to extract it or you can`t use it. If you install a game from the PSN on your console it does the same.

      Yes, but this app is for extracting it on your PC, for example if you wanted to mod the pkg or just pull some files from it, for example icons, or if you wanted to get info from param.sfo about the app. The pkgs we use on CFW are considered "debug" pkgs, with no encryption, but we can still install untouched retail too.

      @dedark05 think of a pkg like a self extracting zip file, that extracts to the dev_hdd/game/ folder. If you want to access the content on PC you can use this. You can also install ps3tools by aldostools, and then you can right click on pkgs to extract them, also works sprx and self etc, so that is another handy way to look inside pkg files on ps3..

      it does work :)
      your tool is officially better then pkgview in terms of everything

      debug pkgs take quite a bit of time. it can be dropped to ~36 seconds where your tool took 64 seconds
      the key is to use sse instruction set to do 128 bit xor so you use alot less cycles

      What language is this written in? Will it compile for Linux?

      Nevermind: I figured out it's purebasic and it won't compile on linux for me.

      True... only the official GUI is not very fancy. In my ps3tools I included a nice GUI with neat features, like image preview and more.

      EDIT: Here is the GUI https://www.sendspace.com/file/cu5a6y

      I ran this in a windows 7 virtual machine with a shared folder attached, I selected a pkg from the shared folder and when I clicked make new folder on the desktop, this tool proceeded to delete EVERYTHING on the desktop and in the shared folder from my host machine instead of making a new folder. I lost my original act.dat and idps.hex file... What the F%$# how do i get my act.dat and idps.hex back now? It even deleted C:\user\Desktop folder. Unbelievable.

      Edit: Luckily I saved act.dat and idps.hex elsewhere, but still this thing deletes massive amounts of data wildly as it crashes after selecting make new folder, so that is pretty uncool.

      Really sry 2 hear that but i can't repoduce this problem... creating a new folder works just fine 4 me without any crashing or deleting anything.
      So currently i can not tell what could cause the problem.
      So maybe u should better use @aldostools gui or the cli version

      Have to say my intention for making "PS3P PKG Ripper" was to have a fexible cli tool for "PSN Liberator". I've made the Gui only for the release and the ease of use and it's 4 sure very basic... i thought "someone will may be make a better one... but for now it's better than only having the cli version"

      No worries, i didn't lose anything critical luckily. I will just further isolate the tool by making the shared folder read only from the guest from now on.
