    So ,here is some news for PlayStation 3 OFW owners, as Russian hackers have released a new method of injecting backups on PS3 4.70 Official Firmware, similar to the hack and information from Kakaroto that lead to injections of various PS3 and PSP backups and tools such as trueAncestor backup Injector (which is used in this method). This new method seems to require a update for the game or it will not work according to limited reports. Also the hack does not require a IDPS which becomes even more useful for OFW user's as there is currently not many ways to obtain an IDPS via software. IDPStealer was one method used by PS3 user's during the first backup injection hack, but Sony patched the tool created by flatz and now this new method has a conversion that is said to not need any hardware or idps. The process can be found in this included Tutorial.

    • Requirements for Converting your Games on PS3 4.70 OFW (Downloads @ bottom of article):
      • The Game (Disc Version) and the Patches..
      • Converter:
      • Injector: TrueAncestor - The BACKUP Injector
      • Hex Editor: HxD - The Hex Editor is Freeware
      • make_npdata: (Complied version inside GAME_CONVERT)
      • PkgView: (Latest version 1.3 is needed)

    • PART: #1 - Convert PS3 Game / Modify License
      1. Open archive any archive and extract packed inside GAME_CONVERT folder at any convenient place, preferably close to the root of the drive (NOT the folder path should be long and contain Cyrillic characters and other signs such as @ & () "/ [\ ]:;! | =,)
      2. If you have downloaded the game in an ISO you need to unpack it or mount a virtual drive. Of all the files we need only PS3_GAME folder, copy it to GAME_CONVERT. This also unpack the archive, containing script-BAT and utility make_npdata.
        As a result, you should get this: GAME_CONVERT.png
      3. We go in and check out there PS3_GAME presence LICDIR folder. If not, then read the following second part.
      4. Run CONVERT.BAT, continue to enter the name of our future in the game folder NPEBXXXXX format (where XXXXX any five-digit number), click the interval, waiting ... After the completion of the script, next to the other files will be almost finished with the game folder.
      5. It's time to unpack the patch (s). If the patch is not one, then you need to unpack them all and merge into a single folder, from smallest to largest, while agreeing with the replacement.
      6. Copy EBOOT.BIN file from the patch to the folder USRDIR our converted games. Editing, if needed, PARAM.SFO. (Change the version of the game, and the firmware on the exact same as in PARAM.SFO patch)
      7. Finished the game folder and the folder with the patch throws in "TrueAncestor BACKUP Injector \ game" and create a backup for instructions, please read third part below. Something like this should look ready patch folder and games. igra.jpg

    • PART #2 : (Create/Modify License)
      Only needed, if one was NOT included in your 'backup'!

      Creating PS3_GAME \ LICDIR \ LIC.DAT
      1. In PS3_GAME create LICDIR folder.
      2. Open in LIC.DAT hex-editor on any game, scroll down to 0x800 position until we find the game code (scroll carefully, that would not miss). LIC.DAT.png
      3. Once found, we replace it with the code of our game, taken from PARAM.SFO. LIC.DAT_NEW.png
      4. Vanishes 4 bytes old checksum in the 0x20 position (which indicates the 4th arrow), then select from the beginning exactly 0h900 bytes (number of allocated code is displayed in the bottom of the hex-editor - "Length: 900"), calculate a new CRC-32 as shown by the arrows and write a new check sum in the position 0x20:
        LIC.DAT CRC-32.png
      5. Save and copy ready LIC.DAT in PS3_GAME \ LICDIR.

      P.S. --> You can generate LIC.DAT code of PARAM.SFO games via the PS3 LIC.DAT Generator.​

      5. Drag a folder with numbers "PS3 \ EXPORT \ BACKUP \ 000000000000" in "TrueAncestor_BACKUP_Injector_v1.70 \ backup" folder
      6. Folders with the unpacked game move to folder "TrueAncestor_BACKUP_Injector_v1.70 \ game"
        • [NPXX00000] - The game itself

      Iam on 4.70 ofw can you play the games from external hdd or do they have to be on ps3 internal hdd thanks
    3. kozarovv
      Internal only.
    4. Blackbeast

      so if i make a backup on 4.70 (or lower) and then update to latest OFW, i can inject games and restore the 4.70 backup and it will work... on the latest OFW... correct?

      Here is a video I came across that seems to be of this method or something similar, might help out some of you that are trying to do this:

      *I havnt tried this, it just looks reasonably legit so I am posting it here, do it at your own risk. Don't blame me if you get banned.

      I just tried this method on a 4.81 and it didn't work.
    8. DeViL303
      I could be wrong but I don't think this exact method works on 4.81, only works if you have the games installed on lower FW and then update to 4.81 or something like that.

      What happend to the video was going to give it a try

      so i am on 4.76 so it can not work without idps and if i get idps what are the steps.and i got 2k17 when i converted it using converter.bat it made a 7 mb folder what to do i moved the files from ps3_game folder to the new folder npubxxxxx but did not replace those files which were made by converter.bat i modified both param.sfo of patch and game to fw version 4.76 i have yet to check this if it works.

      No need for double posting.
      Have you actually read the posts in this thread?
      The hack is for 4.70 max. You have 4.76 so that's not OK.
      So far from what we understand, you can make backups in 4.70 then upgrade after up to 4.81 but with OFW > 4.70, you cannot hack directly. Otherwise you could create backups with a CFW if you have a JB console then possibly inject the backup in 4.76..
    14. super
      but its hinted if i get my idps and stuff will work tell me that method please
    15. Blackbeast
      Need some questions answerd i have a ps3 4.80 cfw and my mates got one with 4.76 ofw do i need to update the ofw one to 4.80 for the transfer data thing to work and also can i just transfer games from my cfw external hdd to the ofw one without doing the game convert thing thanks for your help
    16. bguerville
      AFAIK you don't need to update the ofw to 4.80. It should make no difference... Of course if your friend wants to use PSN as well, that's a different story...
    17. Blackbeast
      Thanks for that and what about the games do i have to use the game convert if i already have them on my cfw external hdd thanks
    18. spirallingspiral
      With this method i was able to run almost any game with an update on my 4.70 OFW, except for few games that needs 4.70+ like fifa17. I just have one doubt, how do i inject dlcs? Do i create another folder or just copy dlcs into the update folder "BLUSxxxxx" ? Because after we unpack the dlc package, it creates a same folder as the update folder BLUSxxxx, so we just merge them right?
    19. bigjokker
      Yes...add to BLUSxxxxxx. Just make sure the dlcs edat files are fixed or they will not work.
      T.A.U and spirallingspiral like this.
    20. spirallingspiral
      Could you tell me how fix the edat on the dlcs? or point me to a guide? i am relatively new the ps3scene. Thanks!
