September 23, 2010 // 9:41 pm - Today blackb0x, the same team that released the LV2 Dumper, has now released their PS3 FTP Server v1.0b followed by version 1.1 with a changelog HERE and version 1.2 with the changes detailed HERE!

Download: PS3 FTP Server v1.0b / PS3 FTP Server v1.1 / PS3 FTP Server v1.2 / blackb0x FTP 1.2 for 4.21.rar (Mirror) / UP0002-BB0011111_00-0000000000000000.pkg (Mirror #2) / blackbox.v.1.2_4.21.cfw_by_hawkeye#2360.rar (Mirror #3)

To quote from PSGroove: "I have just tested this and it is stable, bug free, and FAST (11MB/sec for me). Also thanks blackb0x for the shout out, it seems our site is becoming quite popular "

PlayStation 3 FTP Server 1.0b:

Well since no one has released a bug free, speedy, easy to use FTP server we decided to take the reigns on it. Introducing FTP Server 1.0b, it doesn't crash, it doesn't byte shift, and most importantly, it doesn't suck. Oh, and its threaded for speedy transfers


Install the pkg to your ps3 (you should know how to do this by now) then run blackb0x FTP. You can now connect to your PS3 via the PC FTP client of your choice. Just fill in your PS3′s ip, port 21, and leave username, and password blank. To quit the app either press X, or quit via ingame XMB.

Tested with FileZilla, FlashFXp, CuteFTP, and WinSCP.

Expect more tools from us in the future for the PS3.

PS3 FTP Server v1.0b from blackb0x is Now Available!

The v1.1 release still has a bug with folder names containing "." characters.

Example of the problem:
PC "XXX\Soul.Calibur.4.PS3\GameFiles" ---> FTP transfer ---> "XXX\GameFiles"

Notice that it will transfer the files inside the "Soul.Calibur.4.PS3" folder, but when it saves the files on the PS3 it will dump all the files on the HDD without that folder directory there.

Just make a folder name containing "." characters, drop a few test files in it, then transfer the entire folder over the FTP app and you will see exactly what I mean.

i saw a speed boost from 9mb/s to 12mb/s. Not a huge difference but ill take it. Im using a homemade crossover cable made from the straight cable that came with the ps3 when i purchased it.

seems blackbox may be the best option right now, but that doesn't mean CJPC's ftp is useless.

Whats the deal with /dev_hdd1? What does this mean?

v1.1 looks like it will be an improvement, hopefully it works for everybody.

OMG this thing works so much better then the old one. I was so tired of being half way through getting a game over to my PS3 for the thing to crash. No crashes so far with this one. Thanks.

am i the only one who have extremely speed issues? i just can increase the ftp speed upper than 100kb/s

that's horrible, didn't know why.. i'm using LAN and static IP's.. my xbox is in the same LAN and has speeds up to 10MB/s

i checked ffxp and filezilla for transfering, active mode is on, ps3 is dmz on router, and i checked the transfering from 3 different pc's. no speed upper than 100kb. that's horrible for an 22GB big game ...

any tips here? or some ppls who have similar issues ?

Any FTP will work fine, tripellex. Just need to use the correct settings.
