Guide: PS3 SAK (Swiss Army Knife) for Noobs Available


Sponsored Links
287w ago - I've decided to write this tutorial because I had some trouble with [Register or Login to view links] and Windows sharing.

First off, you have to go into the control panel on your P.C., double-click on folder options, then click on view, and all the way at the bottom of the addvanced settings there is an option called "use simple file sharing" uncheck it and click apply and ok. This will enable you to share files between your PS3 and your PC!

Next thing you need to do is create a file on your PC (whatever you want, GAMES, PS3, anything) than right-click that folder and go into properties. From here, go into sharing and click 'share this folder' then click on permissions and click "full control". Make sure you apply all settings before exiting.

Ok now boot up that old PS3 Swiss Army Knife for step #2. Choose option 3 (Windows Share), and put in your IP address. You can get your IP address by simply going into control panel again, go into "network connections" dubble click on "local area connections" and then on support, and all your IP information will be right there.

Now it will ask you for a folder name.. put in the folder that you enabeled for sharing (duh). Then it will ask for user name (your Windows user name) and your Windows password. Now all you have to do is label the game or movie your backing up (ie. littlebigplanet.iso).

Hit enter and it will start! Now you can go to your PC and check on the progress of your transfer. Games take up to 2 hours for 6-7 gigs. I hope this tutorial helps out.

Note: If anyone could help me, I'm trying to put the ISO on EXT HDD, but it says not enough space on HD! But I have over 230 GIGS on the EXT HD so why is this, do I have to format my EXT HD?

Any help would be great.. Thank you and happy hacking everyone!!!

I have not tested yet on ps3 but this: [Register or Login to view links]

should work for read/ write of external ntfs via linux. Not sure if there are ps3 builds available you might need to compile from source. I'm guessing this is why most ppl can't get it to work.
