March 24, 2011 // 1:41 am - Today jjolano has updated his open-source PS3 homebrew FTP application to OpenPS3FTP v2.0 with the changes detailed below.

Download: OpenPS3FTP v2.0 / GIT

From the included Version 2.0 - March 23, 2011 changelog, to quote:

  • Changed ICON0.PNG
  • Moved to a different XMB category (now under Network)
  • Fixed another possible memory leak
  • Added "dev_dragon" to mount detection and warning list
  • Changed LIST command output format (again)
  • Added new algorithms and methods
  • Should support Remote Play (untested)
  • Added a better way to get the IP (no internet required anymore - thanks andoma)
  • Added /app_home and /host_root to listing exceptions as they cause problems
  • Now uses Hermes' sysfs sprx link instead of lv2 syscalls
  • Tweaks made to improve internal performance, stability, and reliability
  • Added a "screen saver" (simply blanks screen after 60 sec of no controller input)
  • Added an exit application button combination shortcut (SELECT + START)
  • Added an internal "retry system" designed to reduce failed transfers for small files
  • New git for v2.0 and later: http://git-hacks.com/openps3ftp

General Usage Tutorial : Just a small tutorial on the basics.

Prerequisites:

  • Custom Firmware (tested on 3.55, but should work for all)
  • A network connection

Installation:

  • Extract the pkg files from the archive and copy them into a USB drive
  • Connect the USB drive to your console and select the pkg file under the "Install Package Files" menu (found under Game)

    Note: The pkg file that you select should correspond to the custom firmware you are using. For example: if you have installed geohot's 3.55 jailbreak, use the file "openps3ftp.geohot.pkg". If not, use "openps3ftp.pkg". Users of CFW 3.55 kmeaw can use any pkg.

  • OpenPS3FTP is now installed!

Usage:

  • Launch OpenPS3FTP (found under Network)
  • Wait until you see text on the screen.
  • Connect to your console using an FTP client (such as FileZilla) with the IP address and port shown on the screen with user root and password openbox.
  • Now that you're connected, you can browse through and manipulate files on your console as if it were a folder on your computer.

Where's the reports of speeds with this application? I see no reason to change from PS3 FTP Server if speeds aren't any better. Thanks!

I have no real idea on how the coding in PS3 works but is it possible to perhaps make it run in the background?

So you can just fire up your FTP then go back to watching pictures, listening to music and so on?

Else good work, handles NCFTP very well.

Some suggestions:

Show current IP
some type of indication on the ps3 when somthing connects...(light, text)
some type of screen saver

overall so far i'm liking it. i'm gonna take a look at your source if you allow.

not gettin a option to input credentials, just give me a error: The remote server returned a error: (430) 430 Invalid User name or password

with 1.1 win 7, x32 but forgot to mention this is trying FTP from multi-tools.

I already tried it, but when i get to connect the pc with ps3, the interface asks me for user and password.

What should I type in ?
