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

Ive heard many crazy things too, just show something as a probe or youll be banned in 3. 2. 1...

I can install anything on ofw, but ... thats all.
A nice looking xmb plenty of useless programs.
Didnt try it w MM, but it wouldnt ever run a single game.
Thats all i know, i hope we could do a thing on ofw.

I know this is probably obvious but has anyone tried resending a game with FTP from the PS3 to PC after the rebuild database process and then inject the game into a OFW backup with jykku injector? If it doesn't work as it shouldn't then Phony did indeed patch the Backup Utility whilst leaving Data Transfer Utility open to the same vulnerability. Who'd have thought?

Also, another question does the Data Transer Utility mirrors the entire content of the hdd? I have over 700 gb on my PS3ISO in my Cobra firmware and that would be a headache to backup. But if it only transfers the official root folders of the console it wouldn't pose a problem. I'm gonna tinker with this this week and figure it out for myself the ins and outs but a feedback would be nice. Cheers for this, finally some light and the end of the 3/4K users tunnel.

I test Fifa17 and work on ofw 4.80 (cech3004a), eboot from update patch 1.02. Is there a way to introduce update in game on pc and then transfer to ps3 cfw > ps3 ofw ???

My regard to @albatawy, @PSXHAX, and @akela1979 for their grate contribution on this trend. i have notice a lot of thing when going this tutorials, and i have notice 3 ways to achieves this aims.

First, its compatible with almost 95% of games and can work up to the current ofw.

Secondly do not bother to edit PARAM.sfo, leave them as it is on your game back up as far as its working on you cfw an made sure to create lic.dat from this http://jonnysp.bplaced.net/lic.php# if its not present in you game backup.

And do not copy everything from your patch update folder after pkg extracted to your major game backup converted. As all to instruction and directory from both writers, copy only the Eboot, because if you copy param.sfo, you may not see the game to shown up on the xmb after restore.

Its not compulsory to have a cfw console to do the process, all you need to have its just make sure to see the games you are restoring played on the consoles you are transferring from before restore to other console.

Also is not compulsory to get a cfw4.81 consoles to do this process, a ofw of 4.70 ps3 will do, just follow an injection method by Russians to inject to ofw 4.70 console and follow albatawy transfer method to transfer to other consoles.

Note that all games that require higher Firmware may not play on lower firmware of 4.70, they will need to update to the level they suppose to be.

But the important thing is that the Russians tutorials to inject the games directly to 4.81 ofw consoles will 99% make the games not to work. but if you follow albatawy transfer method you will have 99% to make all the games to work perfectly.

THE METHODS IN BRIEF

1. ALBATAWY method,

your games backup after conversion i.e NPEBXXXX/NPUBXXXX, copy eboot from downloaded patch update and copy it to NPEBXXXX/USRDIR directry and take or copy both NPEBXXXXA (your converted game) and BLESSXXXX(your patch update) in to dev_hdd0/game on your cfw4.811 ps3 and have its data base restore and after its shows up on the xmb, play the games if its plays from xmb, transfer to other ofw4.81 console follow the albatawy instruction and its going to play perfectly.

2. RUSSIAN METHOD,
your games backup after conversion i.e NPEBXXXX/NPUBXXXX, copy eboot from downloaded patch update and copy it to NPEBXXXX/USRDIR. use TrueAncestor the BACKUP Injector directory method
https://www.psxhax.com/threads/ps3-game-backups-on-ofw-4-70-consoles-without-ode-and-idps-guide.1035/, and restore the backup to your console. But the method require 4.70 ofw any injection or restore to ofw4.81 will 99% not make the games not to work.

3. MY LITTLE ADD ON METHOD.

FOLLOW THE RUSSIANS METHOD IF YOU DIDN'T HAVE 4.81 CFW CONSOLE OR YOU ARE ON 3.70 OFW CONSOLE. ALL YOU HAVE TO DO ITS:

Make sure you converted your games well and copy the eboot from patch update and don't edit your param.sfo leave it as it is. and inject or restore it to ofw4.70 console and then either do two things.

a) after you injected your games and restore by Russians method update to ofw4.81 from ofw4.70 and all your game for both old and new games titles will work perfectly without issues,
b) if you are already on 4.81ofw console, get a friend with its games on ofw3.70 consoles, or a friend with (a) above console with games on the just mentioned consoles i.e ofw4.81 already install games and use albatawy method, transfer to your 4.81ofw consoles and enjoy your own 4.81ofw console.

But Note for all the above method, your consoles will always be formatted before you can put, transfer or restore another game.

Hint to avoid save game being formatted always backup your game save before embarking on this method. Thanks for reading

aldo tools need Visual Basic 5 Runtime DLLs to run on win7 or vista

try psnstuff, and get a pkg extratctor to extract the patch
