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 README.md 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 "mysteriouslink.py" 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 "dlcIndex.py" 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.

Download: PSN_get_pkg_info-master.zip / GIT

And from the README.md, to quote: PSN_get_pkg_info.py (c) 2018 by "windsurfer1122"

Extract package information from header and PARAM.SFO of PS3/PSX/PSP/PSV/PSM and PS4 packages.

Goals:
  • One-for-all solution to retrieve all header data and PARAM.SFO data from PSN packages
  • Decryption of PS3 encrypted data to get all data
  • Support of all known package types: PS3/PSX/PSP, PSV/PSM, PS4
  • Easy enhancement of interpreting data (=done at the very end with all data at hand)
  • Support multiple output formats
  • Support multiple debug verbosity levels
  • Easy to maintain and no compiler necessary (=interpreter language)
  • Cross platform support
    • Decision: Python 3
      • Compatible with Python 2 (target version 2.7)
        • Identical output
        • Forward-compatible solutions preferred
  • Modular and flexible code for easy enhancement and/or extensions (of course there's always something hard-coded left)
For options execute: PSN_get_pkg_info -h

I finally figured it out! :D

No idea why, but for some games (LittleBigPlanet 3, The Surge) unlockers with Extra Data doesn't work no matter what, when for others (Nioh, Far Cry Primal, Shadow of the Colossus, Ratchet & Clank) it works even if there is no real data in Image0 folder.

Like I said earlier, 128 KB unlockers are not ideal solution since additional content name or icon doesn't show in-game info on the PS4. Only DLCs with extra data are showed properly.

The workaround is:

1. Use psDLC (v19) to create package with data or do it manually - it doesn't matter, but with @stooged toll is much faster. File name and DLC name doesn't matter either, but content ID must be real.

2. Create second pkg (manual input in psDLC is ok, manually creating unlocker also works) which is 128 KB. Again file name and DLC name doesn't matter, but content ID must be real.

3. On the PS4 install first package with data and reboot console immediately

4. Install second package (128 KB) and that's it! Packages are somehow "merged" by console and the result is properly showed DLC info and DLCs are unlocked in-game

What is the trick? Console reboot! Without it when you install second pkg it ask for overwrite and the result is working DLC but no info under game information. When you reboot console and then install second pkg the overwrite note doesn't show.

I think this info should be added to main post for anyone who cares. It took me many hours of try and error, so maybe someone will find this useful.

@Baku86 friend I do not even want to know what you had to go through to find out, hahaha, but congratulations on the effort. Does this mean that any dlc would work? in my case I want to download the dlc from NIOH, I first down the largest, then the 128k. all for psDLC v19 correct?

thank you

DLC with additional data still requires someone to dump it first, but as for Nioh fake unlocker (with extra data) is enough. Game doesn't have any additional dlc files - all is in patches. Also no need to make 128 kb unlockers for Nioh.

Guys one more question. How can i aquire pkg names for things like preorder bonuses etc with no ps store page?

I have some games, that I'm 100% sure that bonuses will unlock with proper contentID (got one with wrong ID = no unlock, with correct ID = unlocks fine) but the problem is how to find proper ID?

If it's just unlocker, changing cusa to match your version in param.sfo will work. If it has additional data it may work, but it depends on game. How this Euro dlcs looks like (size, files inside Image0 etc)?
