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]
[Version 4.2b - March 26, 2017]

PS3 OpenPs3FTP (v4.4 - Experimental R3): New Multi-Threading Support from jjolano
By STLcardsWS on Mar 31, 2018 at 11:27 AM
[Released - PS3 StoreHaxx 4.83] A PSID / IDPS Dumping Method for 4.83 by PS3Xploit TeamUPDATE - PS3 StoreHaxx now been released (See included link)
PlayStation Store App with ALL functionality removed! It has been modified to only display the Unique Console ID (IDPS & PSID) and nothing else.
Coming Soon (original Article): As the PS3Xploit team continues the journey in an effort to bring PS3Xploit Tools and Hacks from 4.82 firmware to 4.83, a mission that is in development currently from @bguerville and @esc0rtd3w. During the research the team has stumbled upon a trick they decided to share very soon with everyone that entails the dumping of IDPS / PSID on 4.83 and lower and also is compatible with both Official Firmware & Custom Firmware along with any model PS3 Console. There is no exploit within this "release", this is only a funny poc to show that the Store app has untapped potential BUT this release DOES NOT bring us any closer to CFW installations from OFW 4.83 or the ability to use etHANol (aka HAN) hacks whatsoever. The team is currently still working on those other tasks and while there has been progress in their research for 4.83, it's a long journey and there are No Guarantees or Estimated Time of Arrivals.Continue reading
[10x Update Jan. 20] HW Acceleration (RSX) Project Update by RenéRebe10x UPDATE (January 20) - Now the 10th Video Released >>> The next PS3 NVidia RSX accelerated X.org steps
(Original Article from Nov. 14) Is the PS3 a bit closer to gaining Hardware Acceleration (via RSX) in OtherOS (Linux) with a proper driver to enable the GPU chip? We are not there, but we may be getting closer to a reality. Earlier this year (back in April) we detailed some of the progress that the busy dev RenéRebe has made with unlocking the potential of the PlayStation 3's RSX chip and now today we have been greeted with a new video and what we can expect with this project as the developer starts to undertake the challenge of further unlocking one more component of the Ps3 hardware,. The developer has alot of videos on other intresting subjects in his diverse YouTube channel >>> (Bits and More) <<< many very informative video's..Continue reading
ref00d (plugin) Released - Run Games / Apps that require a higher FW from your ownFollowing the big news from Team Molecule several weeks ago and effectively opening the system wide open, it was only a matter of time before we would start to see other developer's start putting the finding to use and we have seen the FAPS Team (team members listed below) have recently released a new (taiHEN) plugin called ref00d, this plugin is a big deal, as it will allows users/devs to use content that would otherwise require a higher firmware to be played/executed on a lower firmware for your exploited PS Vita or PlayStation TV. Typically not an easy task to reach but thanks to Team Molecule's research and the FAPS Team we now have a ready to use simple plugin solution to remove those firmware restrictions, see additional details about this plugin release in the release notes provided below by the development team.
