    Here is a neat trick from psx-place's own @pink1 (one of newly added mods) and @DeViL303 as the ps3 developer's have polished off PKG Linker v1.0. This XMB Mod that works on CFW and also PS3Xploit HAN , this mod adds a feature to your XMB that serves pkgs from your PC directly to your PS3, no need to transfer them to a Storage media device and connect via USB with this trick. This project is just the start of some to some of the work the duo has been tinkering with, they have also been working on a HAN Toolbox (also an XMB MOD), right now that homebrew is still considered a PoC, but you can test it out here, a polished released the devs have told me should be in store soon when v0.3 drops and that will be considered the first stable version that graduates the PoC-Beta Stages.
    PKG Linker v1.0
    Yet another up and coming @DeViL303 and @pink1 project
    Here is our PKG Linker app to serve packages from PC to your PS3.
    Not only the start of our companion app(s) for HAN Toolbox it also works on CFW without HAN Toolbox.
    Having trouble?
    Please read the troubleshooting before asking questions.

    • What does it do?
      • Scans the program folder for pkg's, extracts the icons & creates a package_link.xml.
      • Creates a pkg with a package_link.xml to remove the need for putting a new xml on the usb.
      • Patches category_game.xml to look for package_link.xml & add pkg folders in package manager.
      • Comes with a portable Apache HTTPD server and sets it up to host your pkg's.
      • One click mode to scan, create the files & start the server.
      • Manual mode scans the folder, lets you select the pkg's you want, export the files, patch category_game.xml & start/stop the server.

      You can host with your own server but no one click mode or start/stop the server.
      I was rushing and forgot to thank the amazing @habib for his PS3xploit resigner

      PKG Linker 2.0 out now!!

    • Windows 10 users!
      via @DeViL303: If you are on Windows 10 then you might need to do this as it has a service that uses port 80:
      • Go to Start, type in services.msc
      • Scroll down in the Services window to find the World Wide Web Publishing Service.
      • Right click on it and select Stop.
      Thanks @kozarovv for the tip.

    • Troubleshooting and info by @DeViL303
      As its the first version there may be bugs so use at your own risk, we need feedback from the community.

      While what it does is complicated, Usage is simple, watch the video and if you have any questions ask away ;)

      If you are having issues, please check your server is working by entering a pkg link from package_link.xml into your PS3 web browser.

      Some things to note:

      If you have a wifi adaptor AND lan enabled at the same time the app or the apache/xampp could pick up the wrong IP.

      Error meanings:
      • 404 error means a server is running on correct IP, but maybe link is bad, file not exist, or win 10 users have to stop a service using port 80, try change port using below instructions.
      • 400 error means server is running, can be a port issue, port used by other app etc. try change port
      • 80029567 Means HAN Enabler not ran, debug installer ran by mistake, or pkg not signed or corrupt.
      • 80710092 Server error, If I shut down my server I get this error. See
      • 8071053D Unknown, possibly port problem, connection refused etc
      If you want to use another server like XAMPP:
      • Install xampp, run it, click the top start button for apache, (make sure no other webservers are running on same port first)
      • Put packages and pkg linker exe into the c:\xampp\htdocs folder
      • Run pkg linker, say no to using built in webserver.
      • Go to PS3 and run HAN Enabler and then try refresh list
      • If it downloads the new Package_list.pkg then Reboot , run HAN Enabler again and try install a pkg
      • Best if you do this with pkgs that you 100% know work via USB, for testing.
      Connection / Download Speeds / Errors during download after it has started

      You are better off connecting cable directly or at least running wired through router. Wifi will not work great, if connecting directly you will have no DHCP for giving out IPs, so you will need to do this:

      • enter manual IPs on both devices, can be anything but must be in same range
      • so for example fake gateway ip for both =, PS3 = and PC =
      • make subnet mask the same for both =
      • Rescan with app and then Install Package_List.pkg again manually via USB after any port or IP change on the server.
      Then run webserver on the pc, and you should get almost 1GB per minute download speeds, and no errors during download.


      Changing Port in App
      • From the app folder go to bin\ApacheHTTPD_PHP_Portable\Data\conf then open httpd.conf with notepad++.
      • Now go to line 52 it should read "Listen 80"
      • change it to "Listen 8080" or some other unused port and save.
      • next open open PKG Linker and in the ip box after your ip put :8080 (should look something like this ).
      • Now under file click "save list pkg and xml" and start the server.
      • You will need to rescan with the app and then manually install the Package_List.pkg via USB the first time after you make changes like this, port, IP, path etc.

      Hi, I'm getting the 80710092 error.

      I'm on Windows 10, using a wifi connection.
      I've already switched to port 8080, did not help.
      I already tried using my own XAMPP server, same issue
      Also tried shutting off World Wide Web Publisher, it doesn't seem to be on my machine.
      (Yes, HAN was definitely enabled)

      I installed Little Big Planet though USB and it works, uninstalled it then tried reinstalling it through the server and I got the error. Also have tried other PKGs

      The server index is not displaying on my PS3's browser, but I can see my files through Chrome on my PC.

      Using the Refresh Package List option also gives me the error.

      It's gonna help us make the troubleshooting guide too. He likes to make things easy on the users and by doing so make things easier for us. I don't mind a new guy trying to learn that reads the thread before posting but the ones that won't even read a post that you point them to :mad:

      @pink1 @DeViL303 I think you should make a new version with the following changes:

      1. Give the option to use your own port or atleast change it to a very unique port.
      2. make a separate pkg folder. also make a separate pkg folder for different platforms or alternatively let us make our own folders which will show up in the xmb.
      3. implement @habib resigner which outputs the pkg into a separate folder called rifs. and it shows up separately in the toolbox
      4. add this picture so people stop spamming the same problem. try to add pictures so EVERYONE can understand better.

      note: by everyone, i mean people who dont bother reading and start making new threads asking questions

      Is it the 80029576 error? If not we need all of the numbers from the error.
    15. WrathC
      Managed to set everything up and it works, but for some reason it's very slow. 8gb states it will take 115 minutes to install.
      My ps3 and laptop has no internet access for now so I know it's tranferring via ethernet...but this is really slow :(
    16. Mattrane
      The exact error is "it have been an error during the instalation" (Or something like that, I sorta translated from spanish) with the code 80029567. I succesfully activated HAN, but even restaring the console and enabling HAN again, gives me this error.
    17. DeViL303
      I may have got that error wrong in my post as I copied it from the thread . It might be 67

      @Mattrane make sure you said yes to resigning in app and try again

      There we go, manage to make it work. I just erased the pkg and copied again, maybe it broke when i copied the first time. Thanks for all the replies, going ahead in the installation, and helping everyone i can in the process!
