    Mounting PS3 hdd on newer Linux kernels

    I was trying to create a virtual machine image and I found out that there are problems with new versions of nbd-client and probably some other tools too (I tried with debian stretch and ubuntu 18.04). For now everything seems to work with ubuntu 16.04. I will look for another way when I have some free time..

    I tried this on Ubuntu 16.04 kernel 4.13.0. Please post the errors you are getting, you are probably missing nbd-client package, read the readme.

    Mounting PS3 hdd on newer Linux kernels

    Yeah, you need a way to dump your eid root key (or ata keys directly) in order to use this. Mounting HDD on PC is old news, but the usual way of doing it was broken for new linux kernels. By the way there's also a Windows tool by 3141card to read the hdd. You are welcome
  4. Hi there. Recently i wanted to mount my PS3 hdd on my linux PC and I had some headache trying to port glevand's dm-bswap16 to newer kernels. Eventually I gave up with the kernel module and I started looking for something else, in the end I bumped into Network Block Devices. I forked nbdcpp from dsroche on github and I replicated the behavior of the glevand's kernel module by swapping bytes every 16 bit words. Please keep in mind that this code has not been tested deeply, if you care about your data make a backup of your hard drive before using the tool. Usefull informations (keys and fat/slim differences): http://www.psdevwiki.com/ps3/HDD_Encryption http://www.psdevwiki.com/ps3/Mounting_HDD_on_PC Edit: http://www.psdevwiki.com/ps3/Talk:HDD_Encryption (I just wrote some easy openssl commands to get the needed keys from your eid_root_key) You can find my fork here: https://github.com/sguerrini97/nbdcpp git clone https://github.com/sguerrini97/nbdcpp cd nbdcpp make bswap16 To mount ps3 hdd (slim console, /dev/sdc is the ps3 hdd, run as root): ./makedev bswap16 /dev/sdc cryptsetup create -c aes-xts-plain64 -d ./hdd_key.bin -s 256 ps3hdd_crypt /dev/nbd0 kpartx -a /dev/mapper/ps3hdd_crypt mount -t ufs -o ufstype=ufs2,ro /dev/mapper/ps3hdd_crypt2 /mnt To safely remove ps3 hdd (run as root): umount /mnt kpartx -d /dev/mapper/ps3hdd_crypt cryptsetup remove ps3hdd_crypt ./stop-nbd0 Video: Edit: in case you need to mount vflash (slim console, run as root) cryptsetup create -c aes-xts-plain64 -d ./vflash_key.bin -s 256 -p 8 vflash_crypt /dev/mapper/ps3hdd_crypt1 kpartx -a /dev/mapper/vflash_crypt mount /dev/mapper/vflash_crypt2 /mnt/dev_flash mount /dev/mapper/vflash_crypt3 /mnt/dev_flash2 mount /dev/mapper/vflash_crypt4 /mnt/dev_flash3 # do your stuff ... umount /mnt/dev_hdd0 umount /mnt/dev_flash umount /mnt/dev_flash2 umount /mnt/dev_flash3 kpartx -d /dev/mapper/vflash_crypt cryptsetup remove vflash_crypt

    PS4 White Led But No Display Issue

    Hello, a friend of mine gave me a Playstation 4 with a similar problem. Sometimes I connect it to the TV and I see some strange dots/lines, somethimes black screen. The strange thing is that the TV always gets a signal (1080p, 576p in safe mode) and sometimes the audio is working, I can hear the cursor moving in the main menu. However the screen stays black or with some strange dots/lines all the time. Do you think the problem on this console is the same as the one in this thread? Thank you

    [Released] PS3xport By KaKaRoTo

    I noticed that the backup re-created with the tool is bigger than 4 GB, it doesn't split the backup in "archive_XX.dat" files. Can we split it with other tools?
