66w 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.
