Thank you
How i install and test it ?

mv ps3netsrv_bin_v4.tar.gz /usr/local

tar -ztvf ps3netsrv_bin_v4

tar -xvfz ps3netsrv_bin_v4



make install

 is correct ?

Edit: i have tried with lates Firmware WDMyCloud v04.01.03-421 and its working fine. Thank you Fox_exe.



Can you help me how install it my cloud ?

Download, unpack, run:

tar -xvfz ps3netsrv.tar.gz -C /usr/sbin
nohup ps3netsrv /shares/Public/Iso_files


nano /etc/crontab
# add to end:
@reboot ps3netsrv /shares/Public/iso_files

Fox can i copy the file manually with WinSCP to usr/sbin a add the line to crontab?

my current procedre is:

i made a folder home/ps3 copy your file there and made a start stop script in etc/init.d


/home/ps3/ps3netsrv /DataVolume/shares/PS3Root/



killall ps3netsrv

then i start ps3netsrv after a wd restart with

/etc/init.d/ps3netsrv start &


and if you start the ps3netsrv with crontab automaticly and a problem occur with ps3netsrv on booting, is there any risk that the wd nas willends in a  “boot looping” or your data is lost? or will the wd boot up normaly and wont only start the ps3server?

so you can accsess your files and ssh…?

Its possible install ps3netsrv on MyBookLive 3tb?

I dont know how to complie but i think is possible

Thanks in advance

please try only my advice

Sorry, dont understand…I have WD MyBookLive no My Cloud.

My Book Live uses Applied Micro APM82181 processor and a Debian Lenny distribution.


Solved here:

i solved this problem, why you opened another post

I suppose because

a) fox_exe was kind enough to do a build for you
b) fox_exe was kind enough to give you instructions on how to install it
c) the other thread is about installing on a MyBook Live, not the MyCloud; most people only read the forum for the device they own.

I think that makes starting a thread on the appropriate device forum a reasonable thing to do.

can i use it new update for my cloud ?

v 4.4.2

Any chance you can make this PS3 Netserv build available? recently installed cfw on my ps3, link is old/dead

My Cloud EX4

Fixed second post (Links to precompiled version for WDMC Gen1 (v4.x.x firmware) + Sources.

So I am running a WD My Cloud Ex2 Ultra. I attempted the steps in the above posts by Fox_exe.

Some things to note:

  • Nano is not installed so I had to use vi to edit the crontab
  • Every time I restart my NAS there is no line @reboot ps3netsrv /shares/Public/iso_files in the /etc/crontab file

I do not think that this is currently working for me. Even the ps3netsrv files disappears after a reboot. Will update if I figure this out this issue. I’m on the latest firmware, 2.30.196.

Thank you!
