      Nice @bguerville seems the dev listened to your request.
    2. bguerville
      Yep he did.
      A new 2.30 release supporting all categories. Really cool of him. [emoji5]️

      Just tested this new release.
      Added categories support works for fast package repack only as far as I understand it & I would have loved this to be integrated in custom repack too but it's already good enough as is.

      Thanks @jjkkyu

      Done. Add XMBLink type in custom pack.
      Check new version:

      great job, my friend.
    10. bguerville
      I looked with the T/A 2.35 version, of course as WT Web TV was not supported, the pkg needed a USR/EBOOT.BIN to compile as a gemexec TV App. It would install in the right place but would of course try lo launch the eboot from the XMB instead of the link.

      But as I was looking for some kind of workaround using a different category, our dev @jjikkyu has delighted us with yet another swift response to this user problem: a new release!

      So I downloaded v2.40 & tested it. It works perfectly with the new XMBLink pkg type in Custom Pack but the type is not supported yet with Fast Pack & throws an error.
      Test the results here:

      Note that the WT Web TV category is not supported by @aldostools Make PKG in PS3 Tools Collection AFAIK which makes T/A Pkg Rebuilder the only tool I know capable of producing this type of link pkg! At least, in an automated manner, maybe there's manual way I am not aware about?? Aldo might enlighten us...
      Now we can install a link to the XMB easily via a pkg!!
      With the plethora of web commands available in webman-mod this is bound to be useful!

      For all those interested by this feature, the use of XMBLink is explained here:
      The use of the feature in T/A 2.40 is explanatory & you can use the pkg sample above to get an idea.

      As I said the only tiny limitation is that you cannot use Fast Pack for XMBLink.
      Wink, wink, wink..

      Well done @jjikkyu

      i checked some categories such as BV, AS has no samples yet.
      if provided, i would try to make them supported.
    12. bguerville
      I updated the resource to v2.40 & added a mirror as well.:)
      I kept the resource assigned to you @jjikkyu.

      About those 2 other types, BV & AS, I am not sure I even ever had one myself..
      Need to check & get back to you...

      Yes that's what I was trying to do as a workaround for @0_obeWAN before you posted the updated version that now handles it!

      I think u can get a lot of the content types through hex editing make_package_npdrm. it shows forced install and many others if u look in the text portion.
    18. kozarovv
      Universal extractor can handle that kind of files and unpack them in to readable form. But only text strings will be readable. Is not recompiler :) And fyi there is no single content type included.
      Edit: My bad, there is something useful

      PS. Is not a only way for obtain that info. ;)

      u can also play around with make_package_npdrm's package.conf to make different packages. I learned how to make theme packages by doing that. I wasn't aware of the double-folders though. I think one is meant to verify the content before making the pkg. funny thing about themes is that u can put 10+ themes into one pkg, and it doesn't matter. the theme can be encrypted or not, and it doesn't matter either. :p
