94w ago - Following up on his previous work, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer aldostools has made available a homebrew PlayStatiion 3 application dubbed PS3 FTP Client v1.0 (WIP) followed by v1.1 with details below.
To quote: I have made a new toy... these are the features:
It rips files (dummies, languages, update, etc) stored on the PS3 HDD/USB via FTP.
New simulation mode (shows the results of a rip)
If you have a folder with PS3 covers in your PC (eg. MCLUB jpgs), the cover is displayed when a remote folder that matches the titleid is selected (eg. BLES80608)
Displays a column with the description of the game (based on the title id)
It is a "full" ftp client based on wininet
It may require the ComCtl32.ocx and VB5 Runtime DLL. It is still experimental, some features are not complete, but at least the ps3 rip should work...
Final note: Use with care!! Remember that it touches the internal files in the HDD of your PS3.. The PS3RIP is safer.
PS3 FTP Client v1.1 Changelog:
New installer (installs icon on desktop and the required OCX).
New file finder (find a file or pattern in a folder and sub-directories)
New button to cancel transfers.

Today PlayStation 3 developer aldostools has released updates to his PS3 ConsoleID, RAP Management Tools and LastGAME Customizer v1.0 PS3 homebrew applications alongside http://www.sendspace.com/file/43txml.
This tool displays the PSID and the ConsoleID from a LV2 dump created using multiMAN’s mmOS or Rebug’s Toolbox.
How to use: Make a dump of your LV2 and drap & drop the LV2 dump on the tool’s window. It will show the PSID, ConsoleID and Target ID found in the LV2. You can drag & drop a dump of your flash too, but it only gets the ConsoleID.
RAP Management Tools
Keep your “rap” files collection clean with “remove bad files from exdata.bat” (a batch file that will remove the invalid “rap” files from your “exdata” folder) and delete_dups (a tool that will compare your rap files with the ones stored in another folder; deleting the duplicated files). Use them in conjunction with http://www.aldostools.org/ps3_game_integrity.zip and http://www.sendspace.com/file/43txml to keep your collection of raps organized.
TIP: My PS3 Keys tool can be used to create rap files, just entering the file name and pasting the 32 HEX digits.
LastGAME Customizer 1.0
This new tool takes advantage of the customization options that multiMAN’s lastGAME applet offers, allowing to create PKG files that mount games and AVCHD movies directly from the XMB, without having to launch multiMAN’s GUI (btw lastGAME = multiMAN without GUI).
Current version supports lastGAME 4.1 (loads Hermes payload for firmwares 3.41, 3.55, 4.21, 4.30)
Allows to connect to PS3 via FTP to retrieve the list of games installed on HDD or on external devices
Supports drag & drop of multiple folders (x:GAMES) to create multiple PKGs instantly
Supports command line interface (CLI)
Allows to mount ISOs (PS2, PSP, PSX, DVD, BDM) and load remote backups (DRM dongle is required)
Support direct boot (certain games only). Games that require BD mirror are not supported.
NOTE: Support for PSX ISO and 4.31 CFW (MiralaTijera) are not implemented yet on lastGAME 4.1
