Here's further information on PFSMNT Dumper App0-Patch0 PS5 v1.0.0 from, roughly translated:

Our sunriser friend and developer anthony68 informs me that he has developed a tool to dump PS5 games in a more automated way. Its tool, named PFSMNT dumper, indeed allows copies of all PS5 games from the moment it is launched, it is necessary to minimize to make the backup as was possible on PS4.

Its solution offers the same possibilities as with FTPPS5 except that everything is automated.

For the moment, it is not (yet) possible to make a backup but many developers are working on it, it is even rumored that a GP4 is on the way.

This dumper therefore makes it possible to make a perfect copy of TITLE_ID-app0 and TITLE_ID-patch0 if it exists, of a PFSMNT, ie the PSN game.

The procedure is simple, just connect a USB key formatted in ExFat format, then launch the purchased PSN game, launch the payload which will then be responsible for copying the raw data of the app0 patch0 game.

:idea: Note that the progress via notifications is displayed every 20 seconds to indicate the state.

Of course, in the current state of things when the console has just celebrated its two years of marketing, this type of software is mainly aimed at those who want backups of raw data to progress the fake pkg, the big advantage being that it is no longer necessary to manipulate the FTP, which is also simpler and faster.

A very big thank you anthony68.

:arrow: Update 1.0.1 via
  • Full PFSMNT backup is now possible. Uncomment the FULL_DUMP line of the conf.ini file generated by the application on your USB.
  • Starting the application for the first time will build a conf.ini file in the root of the usb. Edit your system language for dump ignoring other language. You will have 20 seconds to remove the USB and the application will wait for its return to continue (default fr):
    {"us", "se", "ru", "pt", "pl", "no", "nl", "la", "jp", "it", "fr", "fi", "es", "dk", "de", "br", "ar" }
  • If the application is already present on your USB it will be erased. (notification during the process, wait)
  • In the event of a write error, the application will attempt to write it again
  • If the file really could not be written correctly the application will write the error in the file log_error.txt on usb. You can send me this report for improvement of the application.
  • Calculates the number of files well written for comparison with the source and will display Success or Failed
  • Transfer speed indicator(may still need to be improved)
  • You can follow the process with netcat (nc64.exe -l -p 5655 -v)
Good dump thank you for your feedback (once again I unfortunately do not have an accessible game to perform all the tests myself)
