I was asked in another thread for a tutorial on dumping PS4 games. Mods are welcome to pin this if they feel it will help establish a standard and for those new to the process...

Here is my method of dumping games...

1. Obtain disc (or use your legit PSN install) and install on PS4 (wait for it to complete install, you will hear the disc stop spinning)

2. Find the latest retail update that works on current exploit (5.05 as of this writing)

This step requires a little work. PS4 5.05 OFW was released on March 8, 2018, so any update before that date will work. Google is your friend here. Here are a couple of links for retail updates:


3. Run HEN payload and install the retail update pkg with package installer in debug settings

4. Reboot and start Dumper payload (make sure that you are using split=3 option in the dumper.cfg on the root of USB drive)

5. Start game and get to title screen

6. Press PS button and wait in system OS for dumping to complete and PS4 to shut down

7. Move dumped files over to PC

8. Open CUSAXXXXX-app and CUSAXXXXX-patch folders with gengp4 and build/save gp4 files

9. Open each gp4 file with orbis-pub-gen from Fake Package Tools and build fpkg files

10. Run HEN payload and install fpkg base game and separate patch on PS4 with package installer in debug settings.

11. Enjoy!

I have some PSN games without updates (version 1.00), so I just need to run Dumper and then edit them in Fake pkg generator? (Newbie to PS4 dumping)
@MAladawy77 The 2nd smaller file is probably the update. Install it.

@JrpgZadrot Find the retail update that works on 5.05 for your psn games using the links I provided in op. Then install those retail updates using HEN, then dump with dumper payload.
For those trying to dump the new God of War, I’ve tried various combinations to get the dump to go faster-I eventually set it to NOT split the files and waited for the process to complete (around 4 hours) and it works perfectly. I think in the end it merely required patience.

On a side note ensure that the ps4 is not set to turn off when there’s no activity
Do i need the dump.cfg file on the root of my usbstick? Is the file really necessary for dumping ps4 games? Iv dumped 2 ps4 games now,Gta V and The last of us RM.

Works perfect with out the file. So do i really need the file on the usb? Thanks.
I do not recommend merging updates... If/when new exploits are released, you will not be able to properly updates your games, at least not without wasting extra space for redundant updates merged into base...
@Ichigo1990 open dumper.cfg with notepad++ and change the value 'split' to 0. Lush78 makes a good point about merging updates with the game itself however in the case of WWII you cannot run the game without the update file so it's a good idea to merge them
