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

Download: / GIT / How to Change CUSA of DLC to Match CUSA of Game Guide / 0-byte PSN DLC Downloader by Etheldreda-MU / / psDLC (c# version) by stooged / fake_dlc_pkg.rar (0.3 MB) / Playstation Store DLC Indexer.rar (3.69 MB) by pearlxcore / cindexTutorial.rar (1.23 MB) by ohcHIT

: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.

Download: / GIT

And from the, to quote: (c) 2018 by "windsurfer1122"

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

  • 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

0-byte PSN DLC Downloader

  • Windows
  • Python3 with urllib3 and certifi
  • Fake PKG Tools (tools/orbis-pub-cmd.exe, tools/ext/sc.exe, tools/ext/di.exe)
How to use
  • Download
  • Create a tools directory in the same place as and place the Fake PKG tools in it
  • Run in the command line with python X
    • X can be the Title ID (CUSA05258), Content ID (UP0700-CUSA05258_00-PS4TOBERSERIA001), or the store URL (
    • You may specify a region with -r ja/JP the region is only used with the Title/Content ID. The region is taken from the URL when using a URL input.
      • Default if not specified is en/US
    • You may specify more than one input python CUSA05258 CUSA2510, however you may only specify one region at a time (Unless using URL input as regions are pulled from the URL)
  • PKG files will be created in output

I can confirm it works. WOFF working, added my collesium tickets. Did the last of us and under notifications everything installed but my game is base so no way of knowing. Doing a few other games and will see if it works still.

All I do is use pkgviewer then sfo editor to get the correct tittle is. Then I use the then I drag and drop the txt file into mysterious and it works. (I copied and pasted the integrity of my fpkg generator)

How do you input the Title ID into the python script mate? If you could paste the cmd TEXT format you use.? I am sure this is where I am going wrong. I am sure I must be putting the title ID in the wrong way ? eg: does it include \ or other unique keystrokes etc.. ?

No wonder I can not get this to work correct ....I justed watched that video clip and when I follow this method ...the script insta-closes unlike the one in the youtube clip. WTF
What can be the problem? A/V blocking ? maybe.

Thanks for any help or advice.
