General Usage Tutorial : Just a small tutorial on the basics.

Prerequisites:

  • Custom Firmware (tested on 3.55, but should work for all)
  • A network connection

Installation:

  • Extract the pkg files from the archive and copy them into a USB drive
  • Connect the USB drive to your console and select the pkg file under the "Install Package Files" menu (found under Game)

    Note: The pkg file that you select should correspond to the custom firmware you are using. For example: if you have installed geohot's 3.55 jailbreak, use the file "openps3ftp.geohot.pkg". If not, use "openps3ftp.pkg". Users of CFW 3.55 kmeaw can use any pkg.

  • OpenPS3FTP is now installed!

Usage:

  • Launch OpenPS3FTP (found under Network)
  • Wait until you see text on the screen.
  • Connect to your console using an FTP client (such as FileZilla) with the IP address and port shown on the screen with user root and password openbox.
  • Now that you're connected, you can browse through and manipulate files on your console as if it were a folder on your computer.

Mmm... But FTP is slow for me, I only use it when I have no other option, and only for transfer files > 4GB (no split) to the internal hdd! I can't see how this can be good, I'm missing something?

FTP programs seem to be the Hello World of the PS3 scene.

Following up on OpenPS3FTP, today French PlayStation 3 developer Onishin has released OpenPS3FTPSplit which allows users to split files over 4GB in size for transfers.

To quote, roughly translated: Onishin, a member of our forums and developer, today gives us a nice homebrew named OpenPS3FTPsplit and is a mod source code of version 2.3 of OpenPS3FTP, the famous FTP server designed by jjolano.

This program has a unique feature that most practical of the split files larger than 4GB on a transfer via FTP. Understand by this that if you want a transfer of these files on the internal hard drive of your console or an external hard drive (FAT32) that is connected, you simply start the copy and the software will automatically split it.

But to avoid splits that you close all your files that you transfer, which could be annoying in the long run, it divides the files in question in each part of 4GB only if the following condition is met: the files you want to transfer must be copied to one of the following destinations (according to it, the homebrew will use the naming conventions or Cobra Multiman):

Cobra:

  • / dev_usbxxx / BDISO
  • / dev_usbxxx/PS3ISO
  • / dev_usbxxx / DVDISO
  • / dev_usbxxx / PSPISO
  • / dev_usbxxx/PS2ISO
  • / dev_hdd0/SPLIT/cobra

Multiman:

  • / dev_usbxxx /
  • / dev_hdd0/SPLIT/multiman

According to John Olano's Tweets: twitter.com/#!/jjolano

  • oftp v3 is not _officially_ released - i just compiled and uploaded the latest code lol
  • no UI in oftp v3, but the main thing should work

So basically I'd use version 2.3 for now until a fixed/official v3 is available.
