Is this any better than the one included in MultiMan? Is MultiMan's FTP server based on the work of any other FTP server available or is it an original work by dean?

The FTP built into MultiMan is running in the background from the moment you start it up. Just find your ps3s IP # and connect on the default FTP port (21) using an anonymous login.

So - quick question for those in the know - are there any (major) benefits of using this comparing to FTP built in lets say MultiMAN?

Thanks a lot for this update. I used this a lot before using the ftp manager in Gaia. But i like to keep this one handy as i started with this app when using CFW for the first time.

First of all, thanks for the update. Maybe he can implement "dev_blind" into this, would be cool.

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:

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


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


  • 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!


  • 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.
