    PS3Hax member, aldostools, responsible for creation of various other tools, has released PS3 FTP client v1.0.

    To quote:

    I have made a new toy… these are the features:

    - It rips files (dummies, languages, update, etc) stored on the PS3 HDD/USB via FTP.
    - New simulation mode (shows the results of a rip)
    - If you have a folder with PS3 covers in your PC (eg. MCLUB jpgs), the cover is displayed when a remote folder that matches the titleid is selected (eg. BLES80608)
    - Displays a column with the description of the game (based on the title id)
    - It is a “full” ftp client based on wininet

    Download: PS3 FTP Client 1.0 (WIP) 118 KB

    It may require the ComCtl32.ocx and VB5 Runtime DLL.

    It is still experimental, some features are not complete, but at least the ps3 rip should work…

    Final note: Use with care!! Remember that it touches the internal files in the HDD of your PS3.. The PS3RIP is safer.

    Onishin a member of the Logic Sunrise forum, has released a modified version of jjolano’s OpenPS3FTP, it splits files larger than 4GB, for easy transfer, here is a quote from the source(Translated thanks to Jack_Bauer_the_frog):

    Onishin, a member and developper of our forum (Logic Sunrise), delivers to us today his nice homebrew called OpenPS3FTPsplit, a modded version of OpenPS3FTP 2.3′s source code, the famous FTP server designed by jjolano. This programme has a brand-new and very useful feature: it splits files larger than 4Go during FTP transfer. Meaning that if you want to transfer one such file to the internal HDD of your PS3, or to a FAT32 external HDD plugged to it, you just need to launch the copy and the software will automatically fragment the file.

    We all know deank is probably the most dedicated PS3 Developer there is on the PS3 Scene, whether it be big updates, or minor updates, he is always working on multiMAN, today he releases version 02.07.00 which is a huge update, here is a quote from the change log:

    * Added: LV2 access rights to use LV1 Storage Manager (syscall 864)
    * Added: LV1 patch for user access to sys_storage functions (syscalls 600 to 623)

    * The above two for regular users mean:

    * Thanks to graf_chokolo and the SACD-Ripper guys!

    * -> Access to all types of optical discs inside multiMAN (file/folder mode):
    * -> Copy/Backup of Blu-ray Movie Discs (decryption may be required on PC) (previously possible only via OtherOS)
    * -> Copy/Backup of DVD-Video discs (decryption may be required on PC)
    * -> Copy/Backup of PSX and Playstation 2 Discs
    * -> Access to AACSMKB_RO.inf on a Blu-ray movie disc to restore lost DRL1/DRL2
    * -> Direct playback of movies/music (avi, mkv, etc) from BD-R/BD-RE/DVD-R/DVD-RW via Showtime for multiMAN

    That’s about it. In short it means that you can now access and copy files/folders from any optical disc (be it to rip a blu-ray movie or transfer a backup of PS3 game from DVD or BDR to your ps3, watch videos in Showtime, etc)

    The download is yet not available, but will be released later today.


    Official multiMAN Thread

    UPDATE 1:

    Please update to 02.07.01 if you installed 02.07.00.

    The link below will take you to the updated with links to 02.07.01 UPD/BASE/FULL.

    There was an issue, which caused some games to error out with weird messages (because of the storage manager intervention). Sorry about that.

    You can also update online to 02.07.01.

    Deank as always, is working hard on bringing improvements to his awesome piece of Homebrew, this minor update, removes the old FTP sever and implements jjolano’s OpenPS3FTP, here is a quote from the source:

    * Changed: Implemented OpenPS3FTP by jjolano and removed the old buggy FTP server (faster transfer speeds and no path/file length limitations)

    This should clear most of the FTP problems multiMAN had. Transfer speed is now faster, you can use 8-16 simultaneous file transfers, and the problem with long path and file names is gone now.

    The implementation of openps3ftp is based on older version from jjolano, but still is much much better than what multiMAN had until now, so big thanks to him!

    If you have an Android enabled phone, like me you can access your PS3 via FTP. Accessing the PS3 via FTP is nothing new, but to me accessing it via phone is.

    The applications needed are:

    ES File Explorer

    Open FTP 1.4 [cant be "nopass" ] will explain in a min.

    Dev_Blind [for writeable dev_flash access]

    Install ES File Explorer via The Android Market, its a free app. From what ive used its very good too, it allows for LAN connections and also SDCARD but most importantly FTP. It does allow for Root access as well on the phone that remains untested.

    I’ve tried numous FTP Apps but never got it to work until now.

    Install Dev_Blind on your PS3, there have been many a warning about bricking - so do it at your .. oh never mind, you know what im gonna say.
    If you’re nieve enough to delete the whole of your dev flash and expect it to be fine, you deserve a brick. ahem, anyway…

    Finally install Open FTP

    On with good stuff,

    Fire up dev_blind to enable writeable flash

    Then open up Open FTP, your ANDROID and PS3 Must Be On The Same Network!

    Finally, on your phone

    Load up ES File Manager go to new -> Server -> and put in





    NOTE: it has to be the non “no pass version” as it wont work otherwise.
    It needs the Username and Password.

    also click on “Passive”

    Port: 21

    For Display as you can put anything and it will work. Ive just put the name of my phone.

    Ignore Encoding.

    In a few seconds you should see a list of folders + dev_blind on your android device!

    Happy FTP-ing ^_^

    More exciting news from the PS3 scene. Jaicrab has released a program for the PS3 known as “USB Firm Loader v0.2″. This app requires you to have a jailbroken PS3 w/ FTP server program and allows us to dump the contents inside /dev_flash (the “guts” of your PS3 firmware), install it on a USB stick, and then boot from that firmare!

    Does this mean custom firmware for PS3? Yes indeed it does, and this is a very big step towards PS3 CFW =). All that would be required from this point is to make modifications to firmware as needed to let it do what we want.

    To quote (translated):

    This program allows to simulate dev_flash from a USB. Allowing therefore a Custom Firmware.
    We will be able to modify the files of our new dev_flash (USB) to our ill, without running the risk of throwing the PS3 to the sweepings. It is a beta version, surely you will find failures.
    I will continue working in it when the time allows it to me.
    To remember that the console does not undergo any risk. Everything what really changes of new dev_flash you will be doing it in the USB.

    1. - Syscall PEEK and POKE.

    1. - To copy with the “Ftp server” all the content of /dev_flash to the USB (in the root).
    2. - To also copy the JaiC_USB_FIRM_LOADER.pkg in the root of the USB.
    3. - To install the package.

    1. - To introduce the USB in the PS3.
    2. - To execute USB FIRM LOADER. After a second volvera to the XMB. The new one will sign this loaded.

    You will see that any thing that you make the USB will start up. Ideal to modify RCO, to interchange units, which you imagine.

    You do not update being in way Firmware Live. That would reinitiate the system having returned to put dev_flash original and it would update to you!
