Decryption of phat PS3 HDD help?
Hi playstation hackers, Today I pulled out the HDD of my old totaled CECHAxx NTSC PS3 (original 60GB) for data extraction.
I already know about ENCDEC keys and various encryption shenanigans on the HDD, My question is this:
Can I decrypt it without powering on my PS3?
Is there a way of pulling the AES key(s) without the help of the PS3 OS, Or maybe even bypassing the encryption altogether? I'm not sure it's possible to make the PS3 functional enough to extract the keys.
The data I'm interested in: save files and saved login info(So I only need access to the gameOS and FAT32 partitions, I think?).
Thanks in advance!

If your console is dead so are the keys , there is no way currently of decrypting any ps3 hdd with out them.

you need the EID keys and you can get them through software method (via CFW) or hardware method (via flasher)
