PS3 Theme Extractor Tutorial


PS3 Theme Extractor Tutorial

Have you ever downloaded a ps3 theme, .p3t file, that you would like to customize? Some have icons you love but would like to use them with a different background. Well Anoop has saved the day. He has released P3T Unpacker v0.3

This program unpacks Playstation 3 Theme files (.p3t). By default, it will extract the contents of the theme file to the directory ‘extracted’ in the current directory.

IMPORTANT: You need to have the binary ‘p3tcompiler.exe’ in the same directory as this program, even when it is being run from Linux. This requirement will probably be removed soon.

This program is still in alpha stage and probably has dozens of bugs. If you find any, please let me know!

Here’s a quick tutorial:

  • Download p3textractor.zip from codelogic.googlepages.com/PS3ThemeExtractor.
  • Extract the folder \p3textractor p3t extractor ps3 themes
  • Copy p3tcompiler.exe from PS3_Custom_Theme_v101-E.zip into the \p3textractor folder, which you may have already if you create your own themes. p3t extractor ps3 themes
  • As an example lets use the official Pixels theme – place Pixels.p3t into \p3textractor
    ps3 pixels themep3t extractor ps3 themes
  • Start a DOS window. Start – Run – CMD.
  • Find your \p3textractor folder and type in >p3textractor Pixels.p3t
    • C:\p3textractor>p3textractor Pixels.p3t
