Earlier this month we saw a PS4Updates Python script, and recently PlayStation 4 developer 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.

        • Identical output
        • Forward-compatible solutions preferred

so according to the tutorial this converts dlc into FPKGs? this would be INCREDIBLE if true. i hope someone can test it and inform us if the final PKGs work


Senior Member
I appreciate the scripts, but i want to be clear, i tried this with various different CUSA serials and im met with errors on linux where i shouldn't have python or dependency issues.

So here's a PSA for the developers and programmers who release things like this which hold high value to everyone, take 2 minutes and write proper documentation. I mean no disrespect at all, its just clear that your basic directions weren't acceptable or a tutorial wouldnt be needed.

Also when i do what your directions state and im met with various non dependency based errors, its a safe bet the documentation isnt written up enough with even 1 example of how the syntax should look in both situations to get the final result..

Your already releasing it on github the damage is done in that respect.. take the extra few moments and finish writing your documentation so the methodology is clear and everyone can accomplish this without extraneous effort beyond your written documentation.

For example:

python CUSA01968

If this is how it should work, it does not work. And its obvious this is what everyone is going to try without knowing differently based on any written documentation... so please be more clear for the masses its 100% required if you expect us to be able to take advantage of the system.

This is very confusion. It need to clear it up and a tutorial. Does it require your own retail disc and DLC to convert into fpkg or this program can convert DLC into fpkg without a retail disc ? Confused.


From Quietow: How to Change CUSA of DLC to Match CUSA of Game Guide

In case your DLC has a different CUSA than the game,follow this guide,keep in mind that this might not work for every game.


1-To extract the pkg (of the DLC) download PS4Package viewer by LMAN here.

2-Drag and drop the PKG you want to extract,then select extras and extract package in a directory.

3-open orbis-pub-sfo from the PKG generator tools, download here.

4-Click file and open,go to where you extracted your pkg,there should be 2 folders, open the Sc0 folder and select the param.sfo that's inside, for Content ID Go to to the PS store and find the DLC you're looking for with the right CUSA,then copy the name from the URL,for example: UP0082-CUSA01493_00-JC3AIRPACK000001 copy it and paste on content ID then click file and save.

5-Now open orbis-pub-gen which is in the same folder as orbis-pub-sfo,click on file then new project and select Additional content package with extra data, open Image0.

6-before the next step, you have to go back to the folder where you extracted the pkg, now there will be 2 folders, Sc0 and Image0, copy param.sfo and Icon0.png from Sc0 and paste them inside sce_sys inside Image0, which is a blank folder.

7-Now highlight everything INSIDE the Image0 folder,drag and drop them to the Image0 root in FPKG generator, then close the window.

8-Now click on Command and then click on project settings,then select the package tab, now put in the same Content ID as before (UP0082-CUSA01493_00-JC3AIRPACK000001 for example) and make sure both passcode and entitlement key are (00000000000000000000000000000000) (32 zeros), click on OK, then click on Command again and click on Build Image,in the new window set your output path and click build, if you can't see build, click on the Build Package File from above (which is already chosen) and press enter, your FPKG will now be built.

9-Install the FPKG on the PS4 and enjoy!

Hope this helps, ask any questions you have and let me know if it worked.

This looks cool. Not quite sure what this can achieve but I do know for certain that this needs extra files that the github can not incorporate due to copyright ...So I would presume that one would also need to source these extra files for this to work.

Maybe that is why you guys cant get it to work correct ? This is clearly stated in the read-me. You need to source the extra files needed for this to work as is.

Best Regards,
