Thanks to “Hells Guardian” for lv1 and lv2 dump

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
