PS3 Slim HDD Reader (Windows Command Line) by 3141card Arrives


36w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer 3141card has made available a PS3 Slim HDD Reader (Windows Command Line) followed by a GUI from aldostools with details below.

Download: ps3_slim_hdd_reader_windows.rar / ps3_hdd_gui.rar

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).

Following up on his initial release and the previous update, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer nullptr is back with PS3 HDD Utility v1.00 homebrew application and details below.

Download: PS3_HDD_Utility_v1.00.rar

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.

My PS3 is stuck in an update loop and I need to format the HDD in order to access the recovery menu
Would it be a solution to put in an empty/unused HDD to perform format on recovery and then get either eid_root_key from there or put back origin HDD after update finished?

Is there any way to use this without eid_root_key? My PS3 is stuck in an update loop and I need to format the HDD in order to access the recovery menu, but I need to backup my saves and trophies first.
