[TUTORIAL] The quickest Method To Dump Your PS4 Game And Build PKG

Recommended Posts

While following this tutorial you'll learn how to make a backup (dump) of a PlayStation 4 game you own and then convert it into an install-able .pkg file. This is the fastest and also the EASIEST way to date and made possible by xVortex.

FIRMWARE 4.05 ONLY!!!

 

If you are looking for another well written and documented in-depth tutorial, I advice you to take a look at the more advanced @Thibobo's tutorials (here and here). 

 

 

Dumping your game:

 

  1. Boot up your console
  2. (Optional) Install all available patches for the game
  3. Connect a USB Flash Drive to the console and open the browser
  4. Surf to the mini Playground (https://www.consolehax.com/playground-4-05/ and click on xVortex + Dumper
  5. Minimalise the browser by pressing the PS Button once
  6. Run the game and wait untill you're in the main menu
  7. Minimalise the game by pressing the PS Button once

 

The dumping process has now started. The data is being transferred to your USB Stick. As soon as the dumping is complete the console will shutdown. This is normal.

 

 

Rebuilding your dump:

 

For the following steps you need to have access to a computer with Windows. We use gengp4.exe (download the ZIP file with executable here) and Fake_PKG_Generator tool (not linked, use google).

 

  1. Connect the USB Stick to your PC
  2. Run gengp4.exe and navigate to your dump CUSAxxxxxx directory
  3. Click on Generate .GP4 (wait untill 'Done' appears)
  4. Click on Save .GP4

Now run orbis-pub-gen.exe from the Fake_PKG_Generator folder.

 

  1. Open the saved .gp4 file

  2. Click on Build

If clicking on build immediately gives you an error, press it again and it should work.

Very strange. Did you run the game again after injecting the payload? It has to be at least on main menu. Then minimise using PS button. If you have a flash drive with light you should see it blinking.

So quick questions, 

1. Can I dump games from un-exploited PS4?

2. if I insert a Disk to exploited 4.05/4.55 PS4 and it asks for update? can I cancel the update?

3. Can I play a game which asks for 4.05 update on 4.55 exploited PS4?

1. No

2. Yes

3. 4.55 game dumps can be patched to run on 4.05, the other way around (4.05 games on 4.55) works out of the book.
