Following the PS3 Game Backups on OFW 4.70 guide, this method by me (Hibatullah Albatawy on YouTube) details how to make PS3 CFW games work on any PlayStation 3 OFW with a summary from @djurist located HERE.

Note that it needs two units of PS3 the CFW as the master and OFW as the target.

STEPS:

1. download GAME_CONVERT.rar
2. extract it to C:, it will be PS3>Game Convert>Convert.bat and make_npdata.exe
3. copy any PS3_GAME that have LICDIR folder in it, if it doesn't have then you have to find it yourself with LIC.DAT Generator online http://jonnysp.bplaced.net/lic.php#
4. paste it inside Game Convert folder, it will be PS3_GAME, Convert.bat, make_npdata.exe
5. double click Convert.bat, type NPxxxxxx, these x are your retail game id. for instance, the game id is BLES12345, then you must type NPEB12345.
6. wait untill it finishes its job
7. make a glass of hot cocoa
8. when it's done, you can see a new folder exist.
9. download the patch update for that game (BLES12345) and extract it. put the eboot.bin out of it. place it in NPEB12345/USRDIR/
10. create a folder named TEST on an external HDD (FAT 32)
11. copy NPEB12345 and BLES12345 (the extracted patch update), paste it into folder TEST.
12. on PS3 CFW 4.81, copy the two files into dev_hdd0/game..
13. do Rebuild Database
14. the game will be shown in XMB
15. turn on PS3 OFW 4.81 and plug an ethernet cable and connect it to PS3 CFW one.
16. on CFW, go to Settings> System Settings> Data Transfer Utitlity> pick number 1> say no> say no> waiting for transfer> enter
17. on OFW do the same way, but pick number 2, just wait till it gets questions for asking to format, hit yes and yes.
18. and transferring, happy waiting
19. drink your no longer hot cocoa
20. profit

Can someone test that : on ps3 OFW 4.80 inject a ps3 game with patch (ps3 injection method). That not playing because error 80010006. Then put out the HDD and take image of disk. Then make full format of hdd to erase all data. On ps3 with cfw with clean hdd install that same game with patch and transfer to OFW 4.80 ps3.

That game now is playable on OFW ps3. Next take out the HDD and take second hdd image. Then compare 2 HDD images to see what is the differences which can made ps3 with OFW to play that game. And if that is possible to modify hdd to make ps3 games playable.

I needed to execute the game bf Hardline first on the CFW , to install the files, and no synchronizing trophy error after ;)

Still have the problem on Nba2k17... on the CFW runs good... on the OFW have glitches and frezzes...

@juanuceta007 you need to change the .sdat files , after the convert.
Just go to the USRDIR folder and change the
0A.sdat to 0A.SDAT
0B.sdat to 0B.SDAT
0C.sdat to 0C.SDAT
0D.sdat to 0D.SDAT

then, unpack the update , copy the eboot.bin , and paste inside USRDIR folder of the NPEBxxxx.
