Recently PS4Scene developer @marcussacana (Twitter) made available on Github a DirectPackageInstaller Tool followed by several revisions including DirectPackageInstaller 5.0.0 for Windows with source code to preview and send PS4 PKGs to a PS4 Remote Installer homebrew application from direct PKG URL links. šŸ’»

He has a Ko-Fi Page <3 set up if you'd like to support his work, and for those following in the PlayStation 4 Scene this comes proceeding several previous PS4 PKG Installation Apps including:

How It Works

The tool it self is very simple, the Remote Package Installer have an API that allow you put packages from URLs into your PS4 download queue, the DirectPackageInstaller just use that API to push to your PS4 the download URL, helping only to you preview the PKG that you're installing.

With that said, the tool can do more than that as well, the PS4 have a very poor speed to download things from the web, but that is limited to WAN connections, when he is downloading something from LAN connection he can reach best speeds, with that in mind this tool have an automatically proxy server that your PS4 will automatically use to download your PKG, and with help of this proxy the poor speed will be basically solved.

The tool allow you to install pkgs from RAR as well, in this case the tool will work in a very similar way to the other existing ones, but with the advantage that everything is done simultaneously, while the file is downloaded from the internet, it is being decompressed to your disk temporarily and is sent to your PS4, in this scenario you don't need to waste time extracting large PKGs or depending on your file manager downloads, doing the post-download file reconstruction, everything is done simultaneously saving a lot of time of your life.

Warnings
  • Due to random access issues in compressed files, the RAR direct download feature may not be as reliable, although tested in some games, it has not been tested enough to guarantee its reliability.
  • The proxy feature in turn has proven to work in games over 90 GB, and I believe it is relatively stable as it depends on your internet connection and download server.
  • Compressed file downloads generate a temporary PKG 'cache' on your hard drive, which will require free space according to the size of the PKG on your hard drive.

Can you not use things like filecrypt that are 50+ rar files? Im assuming it has to be a single file. I get an error when trying to use filecrypt.

Also, sick tool btw, I have been waiting on something like this to be released by someone smarter than me, lol.
