    We recently seen deank working with other developers/members to achieve a much improved experience with relation to using External NTFS HDD, now the fork of the webMAN project and with its own extensive history webMAN MOD (by aldostools) has incorporated and adapted those latest changes along with some new features that now reside in webMAN MOD 1.45.11. For full details of this latest update the latest changelog has been included.

    For additional details & support of this ps3 plugin for PlayStation 3 CFW user's can be found in the webMAN MOD Thread here and also the Resource (download) Page.

      I would assume @aldostools warning about prepNTFS still appiles :

      PrepNTFS/Irisman/Movian works fine, but webman mod's ntfs support only picks up the first 2 ntfs partitions.

      Perhaps it doesn't have support for extended partition tables?

      If there is a preferred way either linux/windows to dump the partition table that can assist development, I'd be glad to do so.

      Does webMAN "vanilla" have the same behavior? Both use the same NTFS library.

      How are your extended partitions listed on IRISMAN? "ntfs2:" or "ext0:"?

      I'm on rebug 4.81.2 with Irisman 4.81.1 , in the tools menu the bottom reads: 481CEX - payload-sk1e sc338 - 'Cobra v750' syscall8 v8 (no libfs_patched)

      I've included a screenshot of the irsman fileview.

      The hdd is a 4TB with all the ps3 related partitions in the first 2TB.


      The original webman 1.46n behaves the same


      I've found another unusual thing though, while I haven't spotted it on the weblisting, I've occasionally seen a listing for /dev/ntfs20 on the ftp that redirects to and empty folder called /dev/ntfs2: , it is irregular so I can't really give a condition on it appears. It also irregularly freezes the ps3 upon access.

      Thank you for the feedback.

      If the original webman 1.46n behaves the same, there is not much that I can do.
      Since both use the same ntfs library, the issue could be some limitation (or maybe a bug) in the ported library.

      Your device "ext5" is not supported, due the current library implemented in webMAN only supports NTFS (not "ext" file systems). Even compiling the library "WITH_EXT_SUPPORT", several changes are required in the source code of webMAN to also detect "/dev_ext".

      About "/dev/ntfs20", the internal name is "ntfs2:" but webMAN shows it as "/dev_ntfs20". That's why you see the path is changed to "/dev_ntfs2:".

      Just by curiosity, why do you use/need ext partition? Is it related to ps3 or do you use it for others purposes?

      Could you also post some more informations about the partition table of your hdd ? A scheme would be very useful.

      ext5 is not involved and I never had any intention of accessing it. It is well past the 2TB boundary and is for my linux stuff(though irisman can view its files). The 3rd ntfs partition holds all the ps3 files and is still working fine with PrepNTFS, and is shown in the IrisMan file explorer image.

      I suppose the ntfs library has an issue of some sort, or doesn't have enough support or hasn't implemented extended partitions.

      Thank you for looking it over.
      Just linux stuff as I use that hard drive as also a backup of my system.

      Since v1.45.11, I can't access the PS3 via FTP (using wired LAN connection) anymore. Gives me a 503 error code. After reinstalling v1.45.10, FTP works without any flaws again.

      Since 1.45.11 and 1.46.xx only the full version has changed the FTP server.

      If you have issues try installing the non full edition or try using a different FTP client (e.g. the FTP integrated with Windows explorer)
