To quote: Hello everyone,

Here is a new version of the PS3 HDD Utility. It's remade with a built-in UFS2 (GameOS) file browser, and file extraction.

The raw tools are removed for they are not needed anymore.

As for phat support, I'm going to need an eid_root_ key and a raw sample for testing.

I have a similar question, I have a dead ps3 on which I want to recover the hard drive contents but I did make a flash dump before it died. Can the eid root key be obtained from the dump? That's how I believe it works unless there is some other step

yes, but only if you have the eid_root_key from the dead ps3. Brenza about the write feature, here is what 3141card answered:

I can you say why I not plan to do that. I simply know not enough about filesystems. Is the de/encryption a prob? No, its the easiest part on the prog. Its easy to write a fuction for on-the-fly encryption, simply a invers of my read_device(). I have no wish to write a app was kill in worst case a many ps3-hdd's. Only because i forget to set a flag or to update a special value in superblock or cylinder. And why write such a prog? There is always a better way. Linux.

glevand has it show (on psdevwiki.com/ps3/Mounting_HDD_on_PC). It is easy to mount a ps3 hdd on linux.

He show it for a slim hdd, ok, but for a fat only the decryption is other.

For slim: cryptsetup create -c aes-xts-plain64 -d -s 256

For fat: cryptsetup create -c aes-cbc-null -d -s 192

Next is, compile the kernel for UFS write support, and mount gameOS rw.

Work perfect for me. So why a maybe risky hombrew, if i can use a brilliant OS with proper coded device driver.
