A few years ago a former member here made a tool to decrypt PlayStation 3 hard drives, with them gone we feel it's best to release it so others can decrypt PS3 HDD images.

The old public tools take a very long time, but this one runs at the full hard drive speed. It took me about 5 hours to decrypt a 400GB 1000A image the other year and I'm sure it'll be faster on SSD's etc.

To decrypt an image the command is: hdd_decrypt image.img eid_root_key decrypted.img the direct hdd function has never been tested mind you so may not work.

This tool works perfectly on Windows 10. It crashes immediately on 7, at least for me, so if anyone else is running 7 on the system they use for data recovery, try it on 10 instead.

Haven't tried it, but awesome release! So it looks like you just need the hard drive as well as the console specific eid_root_key to decrypt this? Would just like to make that clear before anyone gets too excited. Unfortunately many people I've run into who want to decrypt a broken console's HDD don't know anything about jailbreaking, so they won't have their eid_root_key backed up anywhere.

well, I have decrypted an HDD dump (.img format) with that consoles eid_root_key so this answers your question probably.
Oh and i used R-studio to explore that dump later

Noted! I'll be linking this thread to people who ask me about decrypting or dumping a PS3 HDD.

I just patched the tool to work with Arcade (system357/369) HDDs

Make sure to use the supplied eid_root_key file.
