    • CFW2OFW Helper
      The most user friendly tool written in C# to help people with converting games for the Data Transfer Utility exploit 4.70+ or True Ancestor Backup Retailer exploit below 4.70.

      Usage:
      • Place a disc based game's PS3_GAME folder next to the executable and execute the application. Every step of the conversion process is fully automated (Checking compatibility for PS3_GAME's content, generating LIC.DAT if it's missing, editing PARAM.SFO)
      • If you simply want to check if a game is compatible with the tool then just open a command prompt and type in: "CFW2OFW Helper.exe" BLUS01234 (This will check for compatibility with BLUS01234)

      I'm available on the /r/ps3homebrew/ Discord for any questions as well

    Thanks for sharing this project...
    A simplification of the preparation process should be welcome at this stage, especially by noobs, who do not feel confident with the current steps while the automation aspect may also appeal to more advanced users...

    Indeed, I always wondered why anyone would have to be forced to use a bunch of tools for a seemingly simple task. This was also a way for me to take a look at this C# thingamajick, which to me seems like an easy language to dabble with, altho I'm 100% sure I wrote a very non-OOP code.

    I followed the logic of existing tools that were required to be used for this conversion process to a T, but due to the lack of an OFW PS3 in my possession, I'm not able to test the result of the conversion myself, so if anyone can confirm that the converted games do work after transferring them to an OFW console, please do let me know one way or another.

    Speaking of which, I've also seen some of the games that were deemed to be compatible marked with an EM (Exclusive Method) note on psxhax's compatibility list. I'm curious, what does this EM entail exactly?

    Is it necessary to use Ps3xploit-resigner for any converted PKG
    Or no need.
    Because I converted pkg using cfw2ofw helper and did not sign it and it is working

    v13 is the newest, you should update to v13 and see if that fixes the issue.

    if v13 doesn't convert it, it's known that v11 won't, and ps3gameconvert 0.91 won't, so currently not able to be converted.

    Hello, thanks for the help it is usefull tool .

    I have few ideas for the next release if you are intrested,
    - put an option to keep the orignal files (ps3 game folder)
    - make an option if no connection was not found to continue converting Offline, and a check if the game has been converted or not, to continue for downloading the patch directly without re-converting .

    the option to keep the original PS3_GAME files is their edit the config of first param to yes which CopyGameFiles and it will maintain the original CFW game files and convert them
