Here we present you with a cool way to grab your IDPS/PSID on 4.83 OFW.
All firmware versions and models are supported by this trick, but 4.83 OFW is the only fw version supported by the backup/restore release file.
On OFW 4.82 and lower, this tool could be installed by making an appropriate backup file but it isn't needed, the idps can already be dumped using the ps3xploit idps dumper tool.
On CFW, all 4.xx versions should be supported but this tool is only for devs wishing to dig further as there are better ways for users to retrieve the console id. For those curious of using it on CFW, please see end of this post for a package that can be installed.
This is essentially a PlayStation Store with ALL functionality removed!
It has been modified to only display the Unique Console ID (IDPS & PSID) and nothing else.
YOUR HARD DRIVE WILL BE FORMATTED DURING THIS PROCESS!
IT IS RECOMMENDED TO BACKUP/SYNC ANYTHING IMPORTANT BEFORE STARTING!
More advanced users may want to make a sector by sector copy of HDD prior to erase, get IDPS, and restore, to save time creating accounts, signing to SEN, restoring games, licenses, patches, cache, DLC etc.
