Does Dumping PS3 games command still work on FW1.5?
I try it on PS3 Firmware 1.5 with YDL5.0. I input the command dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/imagename.img then hit enter, nothing happen. Does anyone try this yet? or Did I do something wrong?
Well, it will appear to be frozen (just a blinking line) for a while (30 minutes+), depending on the ISO size etc, it will eventually finish, saying how large the data was that it copied!
I didn't see any blinking line. Nothing happen like I dont input any command. When I ejected the disc it didn't say anything.
If you go to the directory ./ you will see file "growing"
I've done it. I put the command in the wrong place, Main (blue dog) --> run command. Now I went to the correct one, Gnome Terminal, input command then I see the blinking cursor and the growing file.
Thanks to all.
I updated to 1.5 already, and try to dump ISO follow the vkr95 tutorial

I did follow the tutorial, nothing happen. So that why I come and ask FW1.5 still work with the dumping command?
dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/filename.img
is it possible to dump to usb hdd?
is it possible to make a dump to a usb hdd if so what is the command?
noover, whats the exact command your using for dumping?
hycraig, its very simple, connect your USB device
type : fdisk -l
should show "/dev/sdc1 40gb" (or something along those lines), find the one that matches your drive.
then do a mkdir /mnt/exthdd
then a mount /dev/sdc1 /mnt/exthdd
(where /dev/sdc1 = your hdd), then your DD is -> dd if=/dev/cdrom of=/mnt/exthdd/game.iso
The issue is , the HDD must be formatted EXT3, NTFS write = dont work by default, and FAT32 = too small!
thanks for that info CJPC.. i did what you said and it and it worked first time no problems at all.
