    Hello everyone, i have a game purchased from PSN from about 3 years ago but since the 5.05 exploit i haven't played it (was playing other games) but yesterday i tried to play it again but it was locked and from what the message was i noticed two things:
    1- the license is expired and needs renewal
    2- it also said that my PS4 is not set as primary and need to activate the PS4 as primary

    so my question is actually two parts:
    First: can i gain access to the game again on my modded PS4
    Second: if it is not possible to gain access is there any way to dump it without accessing the game itself

    i know some people will say download the game in fpkg and play it but in any case i want to know if it is possible to play my purchased game again

    I appreciate any assistance

    You would need to connect to PSN to fix the issues but that's impossible on older firmware without having to update. Of course I know that you probably know this already.

    Maybe the ReactPSPlus payload can help though. Otherwise I have no idea. PSN only games game dumps are rare actually.


    Edit: Oh, well @saintcarl beat me already to it.

    hmm, If you get it working I suggest re-dumping the game, sounds like a PSplus game that's expired, but unless you have deleted / Changed any user details / files from the original primary account then the game should still be working

    well after much time and many forums and suggestions still my game can't start, so i was thinking of other ways to get the game so i can dump it (mainly i am looking for the update as i can't find it as fpkg anywhere).

    so the methods i am thinking of using are 2 actually and i hope someone can confirm if they will work or no but the basic things i am going to use are:
    a- up-to-date PS4 console (6.50 FW)
    b- PSX download helper

    1- so the first method is i login (on 6.50 PS4) to my original account where i purchased the game then use the PSX download helper to grab the pkg file and then use the pkg file on my 5.05 console with the same account to reinstall the game after deleting the original and then install the update from (PS4 PKG database because it is legitimate game) and hopefully this will remove the license issue and i can dump it.

    2- second method is that my brother has his own account also on the 5.05 console so if i used the 6.50 console to get the demo version of the game from his account also with PSX download helper (the game uses unlocker so it will install fully in demo) and then install the update (i am not sure if i can update demo version from PS4 PKG database also needs verification) and then uses those two pkgs (demo and update) on his account on 5.05 console (also not sure if they will install to his account) then dump it (as i mentioned i am only after the update in fpkg format)

    i hope someone can verify if these methods will work or even one of them because i am still looking for someone who will let me borrow his 6.50 console so if these methods has a chance of succeeding i will keep looking for a console but if they will not work so there is no need to keep searching.

    1. Nope. You seem to forget that you cannot go online and login into PSN with your jailbroken 5.05 console. So your PS4 still cannot retrieve license information for the game. And you're talking about installing retail PKG on jailbroken PS4. While you can install them... that is just it. You can't play them unless you own a disc of the game which acts as the license or you have a license for the game on your PSN account and it didn't expire on the PS4. << That is your main problem already. You're in a loop right now.

    2. Same issue as 1.

    thanks for your clarification.
    do you have any idea why this game is not starting even when using ReactPSPlus payload.
    this is the message i receive when i try to start the game before and even after loading React PSPlus payload still the same message

    Save yourself the trouble and just find the fpkg of the game somewhere

    Can't you dump the update yourself?

    this is why i made the thread because i can't start the game to dump the update and it seems for some reason even React PSPlus can't make it start so i am trying to find the update fpkg
