Hi all. I just got my PS3 a few days ago. It has FW 2.30. I don't want to update the FW to register PSN (already registered via PC). Also, the PSN seems to need to be registered via PS3 (I can't see any place to sign in without registering) Then I found this forum and followed this:
1) I tried this method by AhmadkaX2: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/ps3-gu...oxy-98033.html
The result: It gets connected to the PSN server but the website says "maintanence" message. I thought I was out of luck...so I tried to revert back the Network settings to non-proxy and checked whether it can connect to PSN or not. I found that it was not possible to connect to PSN anymore...except using back the Proxy via a PC!
I had tried many times....in the end, I formatted the system and viola, it came back to the normal behavior (means i can connect to the PSN server without proxy and it prompts me to update FW, which is normal)
2) Trying not to give up, I tried this method by sacabonos: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/ps3-gu...6-a-99762.html
Same, it says the website is under maintanence and asks me to come back later. :S Then, I was trying to be smart (to avoid formatting the drive again) and chose to put back the original file in PS3 Proxy Server. Then, same thing happens...it won't connect to the PSN if I don't use proxy. But this time, it won't connect to PSN without going through proxy even though I have formatted the drive.
Any clues how to revert back to original form?
