I merged this with our existing Injecting PS3 CFW Games on OFW 4.81 Without a CFW Console Guide thread because this method won't work with games not on the 4.81 OFW list and as posted above it is just a demo that nags you to buy it after playing. :(

Here is the original post from draqen on ELO back in December of 2016, roughly translated:

It seems that there is another method to load backups in an Of without Cfw, but the method a little convoluted.

I put translation of the companion santeleco, thank you uncle.

Method 1
  • Download update or updates of the game in question with PS3 Game Updater or similar and extract or extract them with PKGview from the oldest to the most modern in the same folder (example: BLES00404) always crushing the older update with the most current one.
  • Copy and paste the contents of the previous updates folder (eg BLES00404), except the PARAM.SFO file, to the PS3_GAME folder of our game, overwriting files if necessary.
  • Open the PARAM.SFO file from the updates folder BLES00404 with PARAM.SFO Editor and note the Version and App_ver values somewhere to use them later. We close PARAM.SFO Editor.
  • Now we open the file PARAM.SFO of the folder PS3_GAME of our game, to which we have already copied the contents of the updates, again with PARAM.SFO Editor and we make the following changes:
1. In Category we switched from DG Disc Game (blueray) to HG Harddrive Game.
2. In Version we change the value that appears by the one that we pointed out before the PARAM.SFO of the update folder.
3. In App_ver we also change the value that appears by the one that we pointed out before the PARAM.SFO of the updates folder.
4. Save the changes by pressing Save and close PARAM.SFO Editor.
  • Rename the PS3_GAME folder of our game with the same name as the updates folder but finished in "GAME" (Ex: BLES00404GAME).
  • We copy both folders (BLES00404 and BLES00404GAME) to the game folder of True Ancestor Backup Retailer (TABR). Remember to open at least once TABR if it is the first time you use it and close it, then copy the backup of your PS3 in the backup folder of TABR, otherwise, you will not see all the folders of TABR.
  • We inject these two folders into the backup of our PS3 with TABR, steps 1, 3, S, copy the output of the TABR output folder to a USB stick or external hard disk formatted in FAT32 and restore the backup on our PS3. The process can take a long time and is not 100% effective. (y)
Method 2
  • Download update or updates of the game in question with PS3 Game Updater or similar and extract or extract them with PKGview from the oldest to the most modern in the same folder (example: BLUS30347) always crushing the older update with the most current.
  • Open the PARAM.SFO file from the BLUS30347 updates folder with PARAM.SFO Editor and note the Version and App_ver values somewhere to use them later. We close PARAM.SFO Editor.
  • Now we open the file PARAM.SFO of the folder PS3_GAME of our game with PARAM.SFO Editor and we make the following changes:
1. In Category we switched from DG Disc Game (blueray) to HG Harddrive Game.
2. In Version we change the value that appears by the one that we pointed out before the PARAM.SFO of the update folder.
3. In App_ver we also change the value that appears by the one that we pointed out before the PARAM.SFO of the updates folder.
4. Save the changes by pressing Save and close PARAM.SFO Editor.
  • Copy the edited PARAM.SFO file from the PS3_GAME folder to the folder where we have the updates (ex: BLUS30347).
  • Rename the updates folder by adding "GAME" at the end (eg BLUS30347 => BLUS30347GAME).
  • We cut this folder and we take it to the game folder of TABR. Remember to open at least once TABR if it is the first time you use it and close it, then copy the backup of your PS3 in the backup folder of TABR, otherwise, you will not see all the folders of TABR.
  • We repeat the first step, that is, we extract again with PKGview the or updates from the oldest to the most modern in the same folder (example: BLUS30347) always crushing the older update with the most current.
  • We copy the contents of the PS3_GAME folder from our game, except the PARAM.SFO file, to the new updates folder we prepared in the previous step (BLUS30347), overwriting the files if necessary.
  • Copy the folder BLUS30347 we just prepared to the game folder of True Ancestor Backup Retailer (TABR).
  • We inject these two folders into the backup of our PS3 with TABR, steps 1, 3, S, copy the output of the TABR output folder to a USB stick or external hard disk formatted in FAT32 and restore the backup on our PS3. The process can take a long time and is not 100% effective. (y)
