    If you had CFW on your ps3, it could dump the key. Not sure how you'd get it if the ps3's already dead.

    that's the thing... i know i could dump it, but the console doesn't boot, all i have is a nand backup the hdd and the anvil itself..
    i am trying to figure out if the key i need can be found or extracted from the nand

    You might have to go to one of those expensive data recovery places...

    why? the HDD is encrypted with a key that the console uses. it is not damaged, and data isn't "deleted" or lost...
