Earlier this month we saw a PS4Updates Python script, and recently PlayStation 4 developer @OctopusRift aka GarnetSunset (Twitter) made available a PlayStation Store DLC Index script tool called psDLCIndex which can be used to scrape / download PS4 PKG downloadable content. :D

:alert: From Al Azif, to quote: "THESE TOOLS WILL NOT WORK WITH MOST DLC. The DLC must be an unlockable type with no extra data required and may require a specific game update version. There is no way to know 100% if it'll work until you try it."

:arrow: For those having trouble, see this Workaround by Baku86 to fix the issue. :thumbup:

This comes following the tutorial for Dumping PS4 5.05 DLC, Games, Updates & Themes with details below from the to quote: psDLCIndex

PlayStation Store DLC Indexer, and list generator.

What is this?

This is a script that will go through a PlayStation store entry for a certain title, which is given at runtime, and get the titleIDS of all DLC associated with them. This can then be funnelled into "" which can parse it out and, using some outside programs, generate some cool pkgs.

How to use?

Make sure you run "requirements.bat" if you're on windows, but then, just run the "" script and input the full title ID of the app you wish to crawl. This can take a while so be patient.

When done, make sure to run mysteriouslink, with all the files required, which I can't link, in this directory. You should have a bunch of PKGs.


:arrow: Update: In related news, windsurfer1122 made available PSN_get_pkg_info which is a Python script to extract package information from header and PARAM.SFO of PS3 / PSX / PSP / PSV / PSM and PS4 packages.

i dont know if more ppl know this but if you download the full game official pkg and download the full game fpkg license from psDLC.exe V4 you can erase the lock from official pkg, first install the fpkg (its shows as addon) and then install the official pkg and you dont get the lock

If you don't know how to DUMP we can HELP---Let us know.. hope for your answer ;)
I tried to install a psn game (official pkg) with this method.
I downloaded the game, called Apotheon, downloaded the license file and the update with the @stooged application and tried to run it.

When i first installed the game, it said i had to purchase the game from the psn.Also the install of the license file would hang. So, i uninstalled the game, installed first the license file and then the game. Now the error changed and it said i needed to update the game from the notifications menu. I installed the update for that game, but no cigar.

I think we might be onto something here. Maybe in the future we can just download stuff from the psn and install it (like on ps3).

P.S. sorry for my english.
@dark90 nice discovery this one is not intended to work without jb.. now we need to know how to activate unofficial themes to work on startup of ps4. so everytime we turnoff the ps4 it will stay there when you open it again and you dont need to activate the unofficial themes all over again.. hope someone make this a opportunity.
@Goldenboy22 sorry, but before public release 5.05 exploit i was waiting on 4.73 fw (psn works until september). On the screen you can see that all nier stuff i finished to collect on 23 march when 5.50 was actual fw. So i can't help you sorry again.
