    ps3 PS3 HDD Reader for Windows (FAT and SLIM Consoles)

    Its getting closer to Plug&Play tools to read your encrypted PS3 HDD on your PC now!

    PS3 Scene developer '3141card' has released an update recently to his earlier 'PS3 HDD Reader for Windows' and now you have both READ and COPY support for now both FAT and SLIM consoles

    Ever since the release a month or so ago of the keys and encryption algo. the tools to read PS3 HDD's have gotten better, from crude Linux ones, to now this Windows based one by developer '3141card', all tho it still does not have WRITE access, it does allow you to 'backup' areas of your PS3 Internal HDD finally, useful for those wishing to save information and other things from their PS3 console.

    Updated Release

    Ok, with much help from @mind i get it work. A BIG THX to @mind for help medebug the prog.

    The app can now read, and copy from, fat and slim hdd's.

    Ps3 Hdd Reader for Windows

    Some words to safety. The app has only read access, self the incredible bug ofall Bug's, can not lead to a write access. The app can not destroy your ps3-hdd.Windows knows not about a ps3-hdd, its a unknown format for windows.That mean, if you not initialize the ps3-hdd, AND DO IT NEVER, the ps3-hdd is notexisting for windows, no random read or write processes to a device whichnot exists for the os.

    have fun
    First Release

    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

    part 2

    To mount dev_hdd0 (gameOS partition) r/w
    mount -o remount,rw /home/picard/ps3hdd/dev_hdd0
    mount -t ufs -o ufstype=ufs2,rw /dev/mapper/ps3hdd_enc2 /home/picard/ps3hdd/dev_hdd0
    mount -o remount,rw /home/picard/ps3hdd/dev_hdd0
    remount need some seconds.

    Be careful!

    I have an YLOD ps3, this utility cannot work for me, because i don't have eid_root_key?
    i don't have any possibility to save my data from hard disk?

    No, you need your eid root key.
