    OpenPs3FTP developer @jjolano is back with a new EXPERIMENTAL release of the FTP Server for PS3 Custom Firmware . The release comes in the form of a Homebrew PKG (CEX & REX ) and also in the form of a background running Plugin (sprx) for Cobra/Mamba setup's.. This release as mention is experimental as it contains "multithreading support" which should increase performance on your system but due to this change there could be some stability issues in the early adoption of this new feature, Report any issues and also improvements your experiencing using this release from the dev. The developer has already made two quick update adding better stability in R2 /. R3. So with time and the communities help of feedback, we should keep seeing this improve with more updates to become a stable feature with of course better performance thanks to multithreading support.​


    • OpenPs3FTP v4.4 (Experimental Release 1-3)

      This release adds experimental multi-threading support which may improve performance at the cost of stability. It has not gone through extensive testing, so it shouldn't be expected to work reliably.
      Builds for Cobra SPRX and EBOOT.BIN are included.​

      [Version 4.4-Experimental ]
      • Release 1: Added multithreading code. Should improve performance at a cost of stability.
      • Release 2: This release addresses some stability issues.
      • Release 3: This release addresses even more stability issues.
        • Potential Issue: The EBOOT version seems to fail when setting up the server socket, at least on my system (4.81.2 rebug)
        • PS3NTFS build is included here, you will need the same PS3NTFS SPRX to run this edition.
        • NTFS build is also included if you do not use the shared PS3NTFS plugin.

    • [Version 4.3 - March 31, 2017]
      • - Fixed console hardlock when shutting down while a client is connected.
      • - Fixed various memory leaks.
      • - Significantly improved performance of multiple simultaneous transfers.
      • - Significantly improved performance of directory searching and listing.
      • - Improved general server performance and stability through code optimizations.
      [Version 4.2b - March 26, 2017]
      • - Removed developer FTP command interface, for now.
      • - Implemented NTFS support, with auto-mounting code.
      • - Various network code optimizations.
      [Version 4.2a - March 5, 2017]
      • - Rebased standalone app server code to sprx plugin server code.
        • * OpenPS3FTP standalone and sprx now share the same server code.
      • - Removed build for CellPS3FTP.
      • - Fixed various crashes that existed in version 4.2
      [Version 4.2 - February 13, 2017]
      • - Reverted removal of APPE command.
      • - Added some additional standard FTP commands.
      • - Rewrote server engine to be able to compile on Linux, CELL, and PSL1GHT.
        • * This makes for easier debugging, so this release should be expected to perform much better (and hopefully bug-free) than earlier versions.
        • * With the new codebase, developers can now easily add their own commands without having to worry about affecting the server engine. The command system is now designed to be "plugin-based".
      • - Removed asynchronous IO. No real benefits were found after thorough testing.
      • - Vastly improved stability of multiple connections.
        • * 10 simultaneous connections in FileZilla is tested to be stable!
      • - Fixed a bad bug in 4.1 causing connections to drop when downloading files

      • - Source can now be compiled as a PSL1GHT static library.
      • - Source can now be compiled as a CELLSDK static library.
      • - Implemented asynchronous IO writing. May improve stability in some cases.
        • * By default, this is disabled. You can toggle this using the command "AIO".
      • - Implemented internal IO caching. May improve performance in some cases.
      • - Improved single-file transfer performance compared to previous versions.
      • - Slightly improved transfer performance when using multiple connections.

      • - Fixed most if not all instances of "completed" stuck file transfers.
      • - Fixed a long-standing bug that caused the network stack to crash when performing a large number of data operations in a short amount of time.
        • * This bug apparently exists on all current FTP homebrew servers.

      No homebrew is compatible with PS3 HAN.

      Is the Cobra compatible SPRX something that's able to run constantly on a Cobra enabled CFW like the webMAN-MOD FTP server? I'm interested in how much faster this FTP server is.
    4. kozarovv
      Yes it is cobra plugin. Connecting to server, and browsing thru directories is very responsive comparing to ftp used in webman mod. But I have weird issues with stability, for example when I send PS2ISO i get black screen when try to launch it, until i restart PS3 after transfer. This not happen on webman mod ftp. At the second hand it happening also on sman for me, so maybe issue is on my side.

      webMAN is able to load/unload on demand any VSH plugin using a combo, a web command (url) or through the GUI (/vshplugin.ps3mapi). Even you can modify the xmls of XMB to have the icon that call the web command.

      Or you can add the SPRX directly to /dev_hdd0/boot_plugins.txt to load it on every boot.

      In webMAN's /setup.ps3 you can disable its internal FTP server or change the default port to have both FTP servers running.

      How can this be done?

      I am having such a bad time downloading files FROM the PS3.
      Uploads from my computer to the PS3 are fine, but every time I tried to download a bunch of files from the PS3, the connection is aborted, and the FTP program spends several time trying to reconnect and try and try until the PS3 allows it to connect again, then abort the connection again and so on... It is very frustrating.
