Direct Boot pkgs for DEX 3.6+
Ok, besides mmDM and targetManager theres still the old school way of playing some of the older games that have fixes. The direct boot method.
although alot of people know about this not much has been said, probably because of the very low compatibilty. There are a few gems in here and if your like me, then you might want to give your hdd some use on DEX 3.6+. I know I seen a couple of people asking about playing games from hdd0.
So Ive started this thread and will maintain and add links
1. Delete any game data
2. Install the package.
3. Use FTP or file manager and copy all the files(minus the eboot) from your game USRDIR to the USRDIR on your hdd0. Copy the trophy folder if itīs not already there. should be in the root folder. the same folder as the USRDIR.
4. Go to XMB and start the game.

If anyone wants to try to make there own direct boot packages.
1. Decrypt EBOOT.BIN to EBOOT.ELF. *you have to do the same process for any .self files in the USRDIR also
I use the scetool but you can use the sdk with keys, aldostools,etc
2. Open a HexEditor, click on the search tab, click on replace text and change any references from dev_bdvd to dev_hdd0 and save.
3. Rebuild the EBOOT.ELF to EBOOT.BIN using make_fself_npdrm.exe
There are tools out there that will do this if you donīt have the SDK installed. just remember the Eboot(npdrm fself) canīt be signed with any keys.
4. Open PARAM.SFO and change "DG" to "HG" and save.
Then make a debug pkg with your modified EBOOT and PARAM.sfo
I use the make_package_npdrm.exe command from the sdk but I think you can also use the psn_package_npdrm.exe command.
Nice work @aries2k , brings back a lot of memories :)
Is there a way to make direct boot packages to load the games off your external hard drive? That would be very convenient.
Edit: For DEX 3.60+ of course (BDEMU)
You could try replacing "dev_bdvd" to "dev_usb0" etc but I don't know if anyone has tried it or whether it would work.
Good thing for DEX this is just another option and not the only one.
Ya, if you do like @JonahUK said itīs possible it might work. Back in the Geohot day somebody supposedly got Motorstorm to work off of usb but I never tried it myself.
Any idea if FIFA 13 works with this method?
Only decryptable files will work this way as you have to change the mount ref in the elf.
If you can't decrypt the eboot, you can't change the ref.
I have tested
