PS3 Internal HDD Encryption Disabled by Graf_Chokolo
PS3 Internal HDD Encryption Disabled by Graf_Chokolo –
While even tho Graf_Chokolo been sent to the cleaners by Sony with them taking his PC and PS3 by force using the German police, and now being face with spending thousands in fighting their lawyers, he still been working in the background releasing new PS3 information to the public on his website blog!
which would allow you to use your PS3's hard drive in any other PS3 console.
If you dare enough to jump from being a noobie to a PS3 developer, take a look at his amazing GIT and follow his decrypting logic and you make be able to make your PS3 accept any HDD without re-formatting!

But remember if you are successful in flipping the switch OFF, you PS3 will ask still to reformat your existing HDD as all previously stored data on it was ENCRYPTED, but this still will be useful to have for those that own more then one PS3 and wish to swap HDD's between the two without going thru the pain of backing-up, reformatting, restoring each time, but again before ANY ONE ASKS, NO THIS WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO SWAP HDD'S BETWEEN A CFW AND OFW (stock/original) PS3, for like PSN access!

Thanks to natedogg20050 for the news, along with the thousands of other submits!
I have so much respect for this guy that I cant even express it, and it only grows every time I see him in the news with something else he released despite his set backs due to Sony. He truly is a REAL developer. Not like all these other ones that piss their pants and run for the hills because Sony comes after them with some lawyers.
he reportedly did all of this without having a PS3...(since his equipment was taken away by Sony in the raid)
Would be very intersting to do a comparison of disk transfer rates with and without encryption.
Dont know if you were directing that towards me or not, but yeah I know thats why I said despite all his setbacks due to Sony. This guy is amazing

i dont get that part can some on explain in greater deatail?
It means all the data that was on before you turned encryption off isn't readable, but once you format it and start writing new data, that new data will be readable in any ps3. i think.
