Here is a new version of the PS3 HDD Utility. It's remade with a built-in UFS2 (GameOS) file browser, and file extraction.

The raw tools are removed for they are not needed anymore.

As for phat support, I'm going to need an eid_root_ key and a raw sample for testing.

It's not entirely useless. If you have a CFW ps3 and it decides it doesn't want to work anymore, you can use this to grab your crap without having to redownload it all.

I could've used this around january.

Its interesting but you need CFW for it to work which kinda makes it useless. If you have CFW installed you can just FTP to the PS3 to see the HDD.

Its needed for OFW PS3s. Thats what I'm waiting for, OFW HDD access. Even read access would be great then I can copy it over to the CFW PS3.

Today PlayStation 3 developer 3141card has made available a PS3 Slim HDD Reader (Windows Command Line) followed by a GUI from aldostools with details below.

Download: ps3_slim_hdd_reader_windows.rar / ps3_hdd_gui.rar / ps3_hdd_gui_1.3.rar

To quote: A simple on-the-fly decrypter and ufs2 reader as comandline tool for windows. To see the content of your gameos(dev_hdd0) and copy files and folders to PC. No write suport! Hdd will only read.

Put your eid_root_key file in the program folder and connect your ps3_slim_hdd to your PC. Comands are "dir" or "ls" for see a directory, e.g.:

ps3 dir /

to see the root of dev_hdd0, or

ps3 ls /home/0000000X

to see your user folder. To copy a file or folder use "cp" or "copy", e.g.:

ps3 cp /home/0000000X/exdata/act.dat

to copy act.dat to the program folder, or

ps3 copy /home/0000000X/exdata

to copy the whole exdata folder. Its not a profie app, quickly written, maybe you found bugs.

Big THX again to ALL involved! Specially to Graf, Glevand, Naehrwert and Flatz

From aldostools: I made this quick GUI prototype (linked above)... but I didn't feel in the mood of remove my internal PS3 HDD to make tests, so it may be very buggy. If someone could post some captures of the DOS output when the tool is copying a file or a folder, and listing other folders with files would help me to improve it.

ok, I added a progress bar and add an initial slash if it is missing. Also added support for some shorcuts from the address bar:

1-9 -> /home/0000000x/
10-99 -> /home/000000xx/
mm -> /game/BLES80608/USRDIR/
iris -> /game/IMANAGER4/USRDIR/
st -> /game/HTSS00003/USRDIR/
pkg -> /packages/

Any title id in lower case -> /game/TITLEID/

A new Description column is now included (like in my FTP Client).

Update: PS3 HDD GUI 1.3 - It's a GUI for the PS3 HDD reader tool created by 3141card. Now includes a PS3 HDD Hex Viewer to view/dump sectors.

The tool is a simple on-the-fly decrypter and ufs2 reader that allows to browse the content of your gameos (dev_hdd0) and copy files and folders to PC.

PS3 HDD will only read (Nothing is written to the PS3 HDD, so it should be very safe). PS3 HDD for Slim and FAT models are now supported.
