    Hello everyone,

    I am currently switching my PS3's HDD for a bigger one and I just have one issue...
    Before HAN and HEN released, I used to just inject backups of my games into the PS3's HDD with the ps3xport tool and to do that, I passed the games through OFW to CFW helper, which essentially turned my game folder into two folders. a BLUSxxxxx and a NPUBxxxxx variation of the same game.

    My questions is, is it possible for me to just combine both folders to end up with one normal backup, do I have to do something else or do I have to rip my games again?

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Well, you can convert CFW2OFW folders into pkg ones via makepkg batch script.

    Where could I get the makepkg batch script from?

    So after installing HFW/HEN and copying them back to the games folder they will be available to play from the XMB again?? As if nothing ever happened??

    If you want your games as JB format, You will have to rip again, but you also can copy the folders from ps3 using ftp and then, copy back to ps3 after replace hdd.

    Use this one, copy both CFW2OFW converted game folders into make-backup-pkg directory and run do.bat to convert these folders into 3 PKG files.

    You will only have to rebuild your database. I have tried it right now

    Both options worked perfectly! Transferring over FTP and rebuilding the database seems like the quicker option at this time, but the pkg one is also really appreciated.

    Thank you both for your amazing help!
