    After a critical bug was unfortunately found by some user's of this popular utility that makes quick work of extracting your PKG files the dev arrives with a fix.

Anyone using Any previous versions of this utility are advised to update, this will ensure you do not experience this bug that could potentially wipe your drive or important folders clean.

    • PS3P PKG Ripper V1.4.2

      V1.4.2
      • [GUI] Fixed a critcal bug where output directory is deleted on abort even if it's not empty

      Now extraction will be done in a [TitleID]-folder which is created in the selected output folder
      (default extraction path is: "[path_of_pkg]\[ContentID]\[TitleID]\").

      On abort the [TitleID]-folder will be deleted first and only if the selected output folder is empty it will be deleted as well.

      U should have read a few post above your's... it's a problem that i guessed i've fixed with the last version. For me it works, but it looks like not for everyone. I'm currently trying to find out why that still happens.

      But it's hard to tell what's going on, when i can't reproduce the problem... so please help me with that.
      1. When u've pressed "Extract Selected Items" and the path selector appears, does it show a "[Path_of_PKG]\ContentID"-folder and does it really exist (please check in explorer)
      2. @st00pid reported a crash when he/she creates a new folder from within the path selector. Does it crash before or after pressing the Ok-button ?
      3. Does this only appear when u extract to a desktop folder instead of a folder like "F:\Test" ?

      Regarding 3 - Here's how i've tested the gui:
      1. I created a folder "F:\Test"
      2. I filled that folder with a few random files and folders
      3. Started "PS3P PKG Ripper" -> draged in a PKG -> checked the top most checkbox (TitleID) -> pressed "Extract Selected Items"
      4. In path selector i selected "F:\Test" -> pressed "Ok"-button -> pressed "Abort"
      After aborting only the "F:\Test\[TitleID]"-folder is deleted and "F:\Test" with the files and folders from step 2 is still there.
      If i skip step 2 "F:\Test" is deleted as well because"PS3P PKG Ripper" detects it as being empty.

      EDIT:
      May be i've found something !? (some sleep helps sometimes)
      Does anyone who ran into that data-deleting-bug hit the "Extract Selected Items"-button without opening/dragging-in a pkg 1st ?
      I should have greyed out the button when no pkg is loaded !

      Regardless if this fixes the nasty bug of unexpected deleted data, here's the version which does not allow the user to press "Extract Selected Items" when no pkg is loaded.

      PS3P PKG Ripper v1.4.3

      Changelog V1.4.3
      - [GUI] "Extract Selected Items"-button is greyed out if no pkg is loaded
      - [GUI] If you've select no item it tells you to do so before the output-dir selector comes up (it was the other way around in previous versions)
      - [Readme] Added some short instructions

      BIG THX for testing it even after your really bad experience ! Not everyone will do that !

      Still i wanted to know:
      Did u hit the "Extract Selected Items"-button without a pkg loaded when u had the crash and data loss ?

      No problem. I couldn't remember, so I fired up the virtual machine again with version 1.4.2, I selected make new folder on desktop and pushed extract button with no pkg selected and it did the same thing; it crashed and began deleting things wildly, so that must be it.

      I'm really really sorry about that... hope it was nothing vital which can't be restored.
      I guess this bug is finally found and fixed in latest version.

      hi rudi.

      Are ps3 game updater for the pkg extract part, and psn liberator, impacted by this?

      Many games come with unnecessary language packs and multiplayer files that can reduce their size by half, but unfortunately file explorer can't access all directories even though I've had some success with it.
      Can you use this to rip a pkg and then repack and install it with HAN?
