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.

im using python 2.7.14 and 1st i ran the requirements.bat , on the first run i notice that orbis-cmd wasnt found, copy and pasted, then ran again. i saw a fpkg temp folder that had nothing in it. so i just copied all of my fake pkg generator contents in there (very messy). now it works. i enter complete tittle id in the dlc script then drag and drop the txt generated.

try running the requirement bat a few times. see what happens. there was a site for game updates anyone know or remember? all my updates require higher firmware.

on a side note : could we ftp a official update to the correct folder and run retail game and install update thru pkg installer while game running in background?


Ok I understand the issue now. The DLCs don't work for me (for Pinball FX2 VR) because these DLCs require a download of the DLC itself (which is about 90mb).

This method only works for DLCs that are on the fpkg game already, which just unlocks the DLC itself (like Gravity Rush 2 DLC, which is already on "disc" or on "fpkg").

So just an update guys ...So I tried python 2.7.14 as barely suggested I downloaded the Windows x86-64 MSI installer Windows for AMD64/EM64T/x64 370014d73c3059f610c27365def62058 20168704

I installed this on a PC OS windows 10 pro 54 Bit version and installed via compatibility mode (right click installer and select run in windows compatibility mode and appy, Then install the program. I have the folder setup as per the youtube clip schematics folder.

I run the requirements as admin and get some red text ...I think Hmmm not seen this before ? So run the sucker again as just double click and it creates the ez_dlc file. I now double click the dlcIndex and it loads a cmd prompt up ...which stays... there Auto closing :bananaman: But no text either... I close the tab down and re open the file via double click... BOOMIIIIIIIIIIOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! Thankful for that... Now I can have a good play around... as this had been doing my Nutz in as to why this was not working for me.

Hopefully others whom experiencing the Auto close Glitch will get it sorted using this or similar workarounds. Thanks to everyone whom helped.

Thanks Mate! Really appreciate your help ....I am unsure if it was because I ran the python installer in compatibility mode or just this sweet v2.7.14 version that works.. I suspect it is the version that`s key to this working on my system thou... I just done a quick test for NIOH and it works sweet as it should.. creating all the .pkg files.

Now it's another thing to actually find some good uses for this... I am quite sure there are, and I will be eager to see what developments occur further down the road... Thanks to all the Great people whom create such tweaks and exploits... For if not foe them... I would not be getting my fix... of just doing something unusual because it has become possible. :tup:
Thanks again to everyone whom helped.

@Rayker Sorry mate I am not sure on that myself... Just tinkering with it myself just now... at least it's sorta working.. ;) maybe just a small snag.

Best Regards,


Senior Member
I am not sure Mate... I believe it is the next step one would take and see if all works OK.
That would be my plan .....But seeing I do not really have a need for DLC or such... I can only summarize....

I am quite sure others more technically gifted than myself will shed further light upon the next steps to take. But I would install if I where you and see what developments occur from that. Good Luck!

Best Regards,
