How to use CDLC

You need to own Rocksmith 2014 Remastered & Cherub Rock!

All customs on this site use the AppID for the Cherub Rock DLC.

You can find this DLC here:


PC Instructions:

  1. Own Cherub Rock

  2. Download:

  3. Run “RS2014-Mod-Installer.exe”

  4. Select Click To Unlock CDLC

  5. Download any CDLC and move it to your DLC folder

  6. Download and Install CFSM to manage your CDLC:

The default Rocksmith DLC folder is usually:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Rocksmith 2014\dlc

Mac Instructions:

Follow the instruction here:

XBox 360: Place files: "_xbox" to "Content>0000000000000000>555308C0>00000002";

PS3: Install files: "_ps3.psarc.edat" to "/dev_hdd0/game/BLUS31182/USRDIR/DLC",if the folder DLC does not exist, just create it.

Other devices such as iPad, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PS4, and PS5 are not supported.

If you are intending on using Custom DLCs on a PS3 or XBox, you MUST jailbreak your console first! Hacking or jailbreaking a console is beyond the scope of what we are doing here, and if you are not comfortable with doing it, you may want to simply buy the PC version of the game.  

For PC and MAC you might need to change the App ID of custom song package with RS Toolkit to AppID of an official DLC that you had bought (Cherub Rock is most used on customs). Any custom you decide to upload to CustomsForge however must use Cherub Rock as its AppID.
