I am aware that the tool has been posted before, but a lot of people are having problems getting this to work on Windows 7 64Bit, and probably Windows Vista 64Bit due to the missing mswinsck.ocx error. I saw bits and pieces of info regarding the problem on various topics scattered around in comments, so I thought of putting my solution in it's own topic for easy access. This tutorial/guide/info uses information taken from http://forum.ragezone.com/f335/tut-mswinsck-ocx-x64-platforms-tut-582677/
Download LG5Tool: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/attach...chmentid=20198
If you can't open the above file you should get WinRAR, which can be found at http://rarlabs.com/download.htm
Download the mswinsck.ocx file, even if you already have a copy: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/attach...chmentid=21312
On Windows 7 I got this file to work by placing it in the C:\Windows\SysWOW64\ folder.
Open the start menu and type CMD.exe in the bottom search bar, it should find a program called "cmd" in the list. Right click the file and select "run as administrator".
Copy and paste (or type) the following command:
Next, Copy and paste (or type) the following command:
It should tell you that the file was successfully registered. You should now have no problems running the LG5Tool.
To use the L5Tool, simply run it, and click the start button. If Windows firewall ask you to block it, tell the firewall to allow the program access.
You should now see an IP address on the LG5Tool. Simply go to network connection settings on your PS3. When you are configuring the connection, make sure you select to use a proxy, and enter the IP shown on the LG5Tool. You shouldn't need to change the port number.
From time to time the IP address of the computer will probably change, so you may need to restart the LG5Tool and enter the new ip in your PS3's proxy settings again.
I'd like to keep this thread specific to users on PS3 Firmware v3.41 and using this tool ONLY. There is no real need to go off topic as this topic tells you everything you need to know to bypass the update check when running PS3 Firmware v3.41, which is what I think most jailbroken owners want to know.
Feel free to post comments if you are having any problems related to this tool (not any other bypass tools) and I will try to help you.
