PS3 FTP Server Homebrew Application is Released!

Sponsored Links
223w ago - With the start of the real PS3 Scene, people sharing what they have - I decided to code up this little, horribly buggy PS3 FTP server homebrew app.

Download: PS3 FTP Server Homebrew Application / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror)

It is an FTP Server for the PS3, with it, on a retail with your choice of "hack" to enable unsigned code it allows:

• Full Read/Write access to all of "dev_hdd0" (including save areas, games, VM etc)
• Full Read/Write access to "dev_flash2" and "dev_flash3"
• Full Read/Write access to connected usb devices
• Full Read access to "dev_flash"
• Full Read access to "dev_bdvd"

To use:

Connect with your choice of FTP client - Prefered is the old "ftp" from the command line, however Filezilla seems to work, allowing only one connection, and disabling PASV support.

Furthermore, the Server does not support some commands (like rename, of all things!) so make sure what you do counts!

Use the IP shown on the screen - make sure to have your net connection up and running before hand (wired is so much faster)

Connect to that IP, port 21, use the username: FTPD12345, and whatever password you like. I could have removed the username check in the library, but I'm lazy!

Be careful, some of the flash contents ARE writable , nobody is responsible for what you do to your PS3 but you!


• Can not write to dev_flash
• Can not rename files
• Buggy as hell (randomly crashes, blame Sony!)
• Files > 4GB increments show as the difference, for example a 6GB file shows as "2gb", or a 11gb file shows as 3gb - It will download, well past 100% , just let it keep going!

Finally, this app was coded quickly, by someone who can't code for the life of him. It mostly uses provided API's, and the GUI is based off of a sample - but, it gets the job done.

Furthermore a tiny, tiny, super tiny bit of editing was done to the library to allow full access to the entire system, and the hack enabled the rest! Enjoy!

I can get this to work through router with no internet at speeds of 1.2-2mb/s but i read a few post that it worked hooked straight to the pc (speeds of 12-21 mb/s). The bridge method works on my xbox and other computers but, not on ps3? if someone know what were doing wrong... Help!

What does the PS3 show up as on the computer when you want to bridge the connections? Maybe I'm just not getting it, but is the PS3 supposed to be connected with an ethernet cable straight from the ps3 to the pc, or the ps3 and the pc both going to a router...? Either way, The PS3 is not even showing up so I could bridge the connections... Im using windows 7 btw.

Post #277's guide itself says to connect them straight and other people said they have it connected through the router but are not doing it wireless... I am so confuzzled

Can someone go into a little more depth about the beginning steps? Thank you in advance.

I've tried using WinSCP and FileZilla.. both get the same result..

It started to work again.. after reinstalling the PKG and getting nowhere I decided to try FTP'ing from another computer.. It logged in fine..

A simple:

Start> Run> CMD
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /renew

Fixed the problem right away on my laptop..

you can instal lbp 2 beta but after you do and try and start... LBP2 beta just says... this content can be used if you renew the license/lisense in Playstation Store

Does LBP 2 work with anyone? (i haven't signed up to PSN on this PS3 yet so tht might be the issue) someone try it on a user they have an account with already but obviously dont sign in) anyone?

is there any chance we could play it on 3.41? just offline on create? any way to force start the game using an app?

change settings inside pkg and reinstall?

If it is updated it will be posted in the Site News, as far as I know CJPC has no immediate plans to update it or release the source code though.
