    I'm used to installing .pkg files from my USB drive. Typically just homebrew. But one game I have procurred in .pkg format goes beyond the file size limit for my drive. Is there a spot on the PS3 I can place the .pkg through FTP and still show up under package management?

    Thanks. I'd have checked myself, but I'm currently playing KH CoM on PS4 and I only have 1 sony power cord at this moment.

    you'll have to ftp it over to hdd0:\packages

    If the packages folder isn't there just create it and copy the pkg file there.

    you'll still need to put the raps on the external usb though same as before to use reactpsn.

    Nah you'll need the matching rap file and region for your pkg. You'll have to acquire the eur pkg, your usa pkg is useless without the rap as far as I know.
