242w ago - With the start of the real PS3 Scene, people sharing what they have - I decided to code up this little, horribly buggy PS3 FTP server homebrew app.

Download: PS3 FTP Server Homebrew Application / PS3 FTP Server Homebrew Application (Mirror)

It is an FTP Server for the PS3, with it, on a retail with your choice of "hack" to enable unsigned code it allows:

• Full Read/Write access to all of "dev_hdd0" (including save areas, games, VM etc)
• Full Read/Write access to "dev_flash2" and "dev_flash3"
• Full Read/Write access to connected usb devices
• Full Read access to "dev_flash"
• Full Read access to "dev_bdvd"

To use:

Connect with your choice of FTP client - Prefered is the old "ftp" from the command line, however Filezilla seems to work, allowing only one connection, and disabling PASV support.

Furthermore, the Server does not support some commands (like rename, of all things!) so make sure what you do counts!

Use the IP shown on the screen - make sure to have your net connection up and running before hand (wired is so much faster)

Connect to that IP, port 21, use the username: FTPD12345, and whatever password you like. I could have removed the username check in the library, but I'm lazy!

Be careful, some of the flash contents ARE writable , nobody is responsible for what you do to your PS3 but you!

Limitations:

• Can not write to dev_flash
• Can not rename files
• Buggy as hell (randomly crashes, blame Sony!)
• Files > 4GB increments show as the difference, for example a 6GB file shows as "2gb", or a 11gb file shows as 3gb - It will download, well past 100% , just let it keep going!

Finally, this app was coded quickly, by someone who can't code for the life of him. It mostly uses provided API's, and the GUI is based off of a sample - but, it gets the job done.

Furthermore a tiny, tiny, super tiny bit of editing was done to the library to allow full access to the entire system, and the hack enabled the rest! Enjoy!

With ftp server stuff i transfered an entire game, virtua fighter to the harddrive. But when i go to backup manager, "mount" the game and i get back to xmb, the game i can see is the disc i put in. I am guessing if i transfered the file in a wrong way it would say something. Does somebody know what to do at this point? I got plenty of space on my harddrive. 6 gigs left still.

Currently my game is located like this on my internal HDD of my ps3:

dv_hdd0/game/LAUN12345/GAMEZ/Virtua Figther 5

So my games folder is with CAPS but game folder ain't. Am i not doing it right so far? Not able to play my game yet.

hi, maybe someone will more skills than me can help me. i managed to get the ftp server running and i can access the ps3 hdd.

now, what i'm interested in: I'd like to copy files from my Pc to the PS3 HDD. More specifically, i want to copy edited game data for pro evolution soccer. there are a lot of patches where you can get all the latest player faces, etc. to the game. but unfortunately, you have to copy every single file by hand from USB to the PS3. as there are around 500 files in the current patches, this takes forever.

i thought, why not copy them over via ftp, but i was only semi successful.. the save games are stored in this path:

/dev_hdd0/home/0000000x (where x is the number of your profile which you use)

now, when i copy over the files, only those that have been therebefore (through proper USB copy) get recognized by the PS3 (so i allready had an option ifle on the ps3 which i overwrote, and that one gets recognized in the game an din XMB, the other ones do not).

then, I deleted some files (from other games) of the PS3 HDD, but the files still show up on XMB but without proper icon etc.

so my guess is that the files need to be registered in some form or another before being copied to the PS3.

has anyone an idea of how to get that done?

So can any of you tell me how it can be done?

Thx...


Download the appropriate 3.41 firmware file by searching google or if your usa theres one in the downloads section on this site and put it on a USB stick and then goto system update in the ps3 menu and choose update via storage media and you should be done
