Before starting the eEID_RKDumper from XMB, remove ALL your USB devices. Otherwise, it will freeze in a black screen and you will have to unplug the power cord from the PS3 (or turn it off using the power switch in back of the PS3 phat).

PlayStation 3 developer aldostools compared the eid_root_key (48 bytes) with the first 48 bytes of his dump_eid0.bin (obtained via linux & metldrpwn), and they are the same.

From haz367: The eEID dumper works perfect, could not get eid_root_key working on 4.21 with "dispath settings" ticked in Rebug's Toolbox(runs boot hangs after loading with the symbol on the right upper corner" = hard rest, anyone knows correct settings for eid_root_key dumper... no required here but for anyone wanted to test... let me be the noob here asking some stuff

eid4 is the bd drive part (offset 303A0 > 303CF) the 3k3y_keydumper dumps the "eid4+root_key" as "3Dump.bin" = Disc key = eid4+root_key

when using the manual way using zecoxao's tool we get an "eid3" error because of missing sha etc..correct?! on the provided 5KB "eid" then end up with "eid4&eid4d.bin" > eid4 identical as "3k3y dumper+added root_key" = Disc key?

so anyone can skip all this ^ if u have the root_key and a dump of the flash? add the "eid4+root_key" in 1 file = disc key?

updating the linux atm.. gonna waste some time on the wiki later on.. let's how long my patience lasts.

Finally, zecoxao who has created a PS3 HDD / eEID decryption repository stating the following:

You only need the eEID and the eid_root_key. entire flash is not needed. and i don't have the slightest idea why the heck they made a pkg that only dumps eid4 (someone talked about hash comparison and they said eid4 from the program and the dump from the pkg match in comparison)

The first key is used for encrypting data sent from host to BD drive. The second key is used for decrypting data sent from BD drive to host. Two keys infact (via

Basically, the first 16 bytes contain a key, the second 16 contain another, and the last 16 are the hash check from OMAC1. you get that by "digesting" the two keys. that's a hash function.

So, I decided to create a ps3 hdd/eEID decryption repository, just for the gist of it. Bear in mind that the code is adapted from naehrwert’s code, so it’s not 100% my code, but i did modify some things and made it so that it’d be more user-friendly. for now, it only runs on linux, and people who want to use it on windows or mac have to adapt the code (the cygwin zip i have also works for windows, but i want to improve it a bit)

Here's my repository:

That should work on linux if you have build-essential, openssl, and libpolarssl-dev installed. just read the readme, and you're good to go. Note: gitorious didn't seem to work for me, so i decided for github instead.
