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.


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
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 anyone help me with beyond two souls (bces01122)?

I have tried all: rename sdat, install cfw data, different methods of converting... It always ends in blackscreen...

thanks in advance


I have tried couples of numerous time converting games using their update patch but still yet i can succeed in running them on ofw 4.81, all i get is error playing game.

then i realized that the best way to get patched games play on ofw 4.81 is to have a PS3 that is already running on cfw and do transfer to a PS3 running on ofw.

i think before the end of 2017, a new cfw will be out that won't require downgrading to 3.55 before hacking. is there any so far?


just want to share, i tried wwe 2k17 blus31599. I used the first update but didn't worked at first try, stocked at the loading screen just a few seconds after starting the game. Then I updated it after the whole process and now its working. I'm just having problem now with fight night champions. It just goes back to xmb after loading. Is there any fix for this?

I have tried all this games and worked on my cfw, currently transferring it to my ofw. wwe 2k17, burnout paradise, nba 2k17, nfs rival, dark souls prepare to die edition, ps all stars and gta 5. If anyone having problems running those games, i'd be glad to help.

By the way, thanks albataway for this great procedure, its been a great help for a lot of my friends. I'll try resident evil 5 and 6 tomorrow. I heard there was a problem with re6 regarding saves. Is there a specific method to get it to work? thanks, and this a a great community ^_^
Bro can you explain better as to how you got the WWE 2K17 to work. Been trying but always get stuck on the loading part. Kindly explain.

most people using games that are downloaded iso will not work as most are patched with keys unless marked untouched.

open sce tool and look and see if it's bin patched before you start by looking at how many lines past 33 is patched.


I am new in ps3 issues..I bought ps3 super slim so I kindly ask how to make it play downloaded games, because I followed those steps but I get error (0006).. And my fifa 18 doesn't start... (n)

I kindly ask for your help guys @albatawy

Did you read his comments there? said after used a cfw console to get it to work obvious tied account means 2 consoles using same account

cfw can surve you as a backend if you know what your doing things need to be setup properly before you transfer and both consoles need to be on same fw cfw and ofw. not all games work
