PS3 Dev Request: 2048KB of the HDD Partition Uploads!

325w ago - Update: A brief guide and F.A.Q. are available HERE and NDT posted a more detailed walkthrough.

Guys,

I need a little help from the community, if possible i'd like to have from all of you uploaded somewhere (example: rapidshare) the first 2048KB of the HDD partition. Specifically i need a test conducted this way:

Power up the ps3, go to the formatting utility, and format the ps3 HDD with the option of 10GB for the ps3 system.

Power off the ps3, remove the hard disk, attach it to the PC and dump the first 2048KB.

Compress the 2048 with the program you actually prefer (rar, zip whatever) and upload and post a link here.

For the dumping part winhex (for windows) or dd (unix and windows), if any problem or question rise, feel free to contact me or other devs, thanks again for the contribution!

Here is the 2mb dump from a TEST unit. It didn't come with a harddrive but I stuck a 200gb in there and follow the directions posted. The debug firmware I have on there atm is 2.15.

here's my little contribution to the best ps3 project in the world. i've attached 2 different dumps of my original 60gb PS3 PAL hdd. i tried to re-format and the data is different (i compared the 2 dumps with HashCalc and the values are different)

like asked i formated with a 10gb partition for the ps3 system.

2.3 firmware

Here's my dump. It's from a EUR PS3 (CECHC) @ FW 2.43. I formatted and partitioned 10 GB for gameos per the instructions.

The disk is not the original but another 60 GB Hitachi, HTS541060G9SA00.

Edit: Funny how large my file is compared to the others. I will do a full format and try again.

Edit2: Marginal difference in size on the second try. Only a few bytes size difference when rared.
