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.

For anyone having issues transferring with this in CuteFTP (namely timeouts or frozen transfers), switch to FlashFXP. I've used it without incident since switching from CuteFTP.

Just like the other program, this works just fine for me.

The only issue I'm having is that it doesn't report file >4GB's correctly, ie. with Metal Gear Solid 4-the demo.dat file ~13GB but shows in the Filezilla and other FTP programs as ~387 MB's. It took me awhile and several transfer attempts before I realized what was going on.

Because it's more stable. It would be nice if the next blackb0x FTP release contains a function of displaying your IP address on screen... My network always change my PS3's IP address. I know I can make it static but I'm too lazy, lol.

Speedy, yes! Bug free, no!

Make sure any folders you copy have no spaces or characters other than letters or numbers or it will mess everything up!

I learnt the hard way!

I didnt think the original ftp server sucked.. No, the people using it who don't know wtf ftp is are the ones who "Suck" I think i'll stay with cjpc version he is by far a great programmer and had this idea first...

The new one by blackbox doesn't tell you the PS3 IP, so keep CJPC's FTP app installed for that purpose until blackbox's is updated to support that feature.

I'd like to see some animation or "screen saver" feature to prevent this from possibly burning into my TV.

yea i noticed before cjpc's version gets the ip from a .sprx file. try running the original ftp server without the ethernet wire plugged into the ps3 and you'll see which file it uses to get the ip...

extract the pkg with make_package_npdrm -x (or the pkg extractor gui program), decrypt the self (unfself), open the decrypted self with a hex editor, search for the strings you would like to change and change them, fake encrypt the self (make_fself), compress all back into a pkg (you can change the icon on this step also), and you're done.

Well, it isn't necessarily the case that this is always better. Some people had issues with the old ftp server and for some of them this works better. On the other hand some people are experiencing issues with this release and so they should stick with the old ftp server.

Point is. Just use what works for you. As far as I can tell they both have about the same features.
