[Answered] Decrypting PS3 HDD on CFW 4.30 help?
So this might be a little long-winded, but I honestly haven't touched my PS3 in probably a good year. I'd like to check out Ni No Kuni, which requires CFW 4.30. Back in the day, I killed the power on my PS3 and now it wants me to reformat the hard drive. I never did, as it was a 640gb, I had ALL my gamesaves on there (literally weeks worth), and had spare hard drives.
So reading this: http://www.ps3news.com/ps3-hacks-jai...evand-arrives/
...I have no clue where to even begin. My goal would be to restore my gamesaves, or rather, pull all my saves off, format, then put them back on.
So I was going to put it off till there was an easier way to do it, like with Xbox 360 HDDs.
Now I'm at a dilemma. I want to play Ni No Kuni, but to do so I have to updated to CFW 4.30. Will this nix any chance I have at recovering the savedata? Will it change any of the keys? The original 640gb is still laying in storage and hasn't been touched since that day. I currently have a 40gb inside my PS3.

Well, I mean I can make do with the 40gb I have in it right now, I was just wondering if updating to 4.30 would change anything whereas I won't be able to recover the data. I think I remember someone saying I needed some sort of key (EID root key perhaps?) to do the actual decrypting, and I was wondering if any of that changes.
I have some programming knowledge, but I wouldn't know the first thing to do with that guide. Not very noob friendly.
