To quote: A simple on-the-fly decrypter and ufs2 reader as comandline tool for windows. To see the content of your gameos(dev_hdd0) and copy files and folders to PC. No write suport! Hdd will only read.

Put your eid_root_key file in the program folder and connect your ps3_slim_hdd to your PC. Comands are "dir" or "ls" for see a directory, e.g.:

ps3 dir /

to see the root of dev_hdd0, or

ps3 ls /home/0000000X

to see your user folder. To copy a file or folder use "cp" or "copy", e.g.:

ps3 cp /home/0000000X/exdata/act.dat

to copy act.dat to the program folder, or

ps3 copy /home/0000000X/exdata

to copy the whole exdata folder. Its not a profie app, quickly written, maybe you found bugs.

Big THX again to ALL involved! Specially to Graf, Glevand, Naehrwert and Flatz

From aldostools: I made this quick GUI prototype (linked above)... but I didn't feel in the mood of remove my internal PS3 HDD to make tests, so it may be very buggy. If someone could post some captures of the DOS output when the tool is copying a file or a folder, and listing other folders with files would help me to improve it.

ok, I added a progress bar and add an initial slash if it is missing. Also added support for some shorcuts from the address bar:

1-9 -> /home/0000000x/
10-99 -> /home/000000xx/
mm -> /game/BLES80608/USRDIR/
iris -> /game/IMANAGER4/USRDIR/
st -> /game/HTSS00003/USRDIR/
pkg -> /packages/

Any title id in lower case -> /game/TITLEID/

A new Description column is now included (like in my FTP Client).

Update: PS3 HDD GUI 1.3 - It's a GUI for the PS3 HDD reader tool created by 3141card. Now includes a [Register or Login to view links] to view/dump sectors.

The tool is a simple on-the-fly decrypter and ufs2 reader that allows to browse the content of your gameos (dev_hdd0) and copy files and folders to PC.

PS3 HDD will only read (Nothing is written to the PS3 HDD, so it should be very safe). PS3 HDD for Slim and FAT models are now supported.

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.
