Hi, Ive just been coding a ps3 proxy server in c++ (I used someone elses normal pc proxy, but modified it so it changed stuff and routed communications properly using the host data from HTTP packets), and it disables the update (yay).
Anyway, I decided to play Little Big Planet, and I found a glitch in my proxy. I "fixed" it (Or so I thought), but my fix didnt work, and my program triggered a break point (and so PSN timed out and glitched up) but Little Big Planet was still online.
I pressed the PS button and the "Sign In" button was visible insted of the account settings button. Unfortunatly (on an unrelated note) my PS3 froze after I pressed start in a level, so it isnt up anymore. Is this meant to be possible? Does it mean that Little Big Planet connects to an specific server and doesn't require PSN to work?
I suspect the issue is what you described, that they changed the 'handshake' after 3.00 because I get past the firmware verification but then fail to login to PSN. Clearly there is a miscommunication between the logan proxy tool and PSN eventhough I can still use the internet on the PS3.
I think the only way this can be solved is by one of two options.
Upgrade to 3.00 / 3.15 or someone make a Logan Proxy specifically for sub 3.00 users. I think the reason why its working for most here is because they are all on 3.15.
Although its confusing me because why would a proxy tool made before 3.00 (Logan 2009) work now ONLY with people above 3.00, if that makes sense.
I would prefer someone make a tool or point in the direction of one that works for guys like us because I don't even what to go to 3.00 because thats when they ruined the XMB and branded everything with the new slim logo.
So can someone please point to a tool that works right now if you are running firmware LOWER than 3.00. Please!!
Are there any Mac based alternatives with a similar GUI for bypassing firmware updates?
HOWEVER if i rename that .txt file to info.htm then it's downloadable as http://fus01.ps3.update.playstation....st/us/info.htm
I read on the ddwrt site that the webserver requires the file to info.htm always! I don't understand why it downloads fine from /jffs and not from the syb folder structure.
I'm pretty sure this is stopping us. I'm curious if there is a MITM SSL proxy that can alter the XML... All this to get a $20 DLC for Burnout Paradise (sigh) - a game that does not need 3.x firmware to run.
One day they will catch up, and 3.15 will be locked out like we are on 2.x. It stinks that we can only buy DLC from the PS Store. If I could get my DLC legally from another place, I'd buy it in a heartbeat. Actually, I just thought of another reason...
There are likely no demos/games on PS Store that require 3.21 at the moment. But there are plenty that require 3.01 or later. So, the logic flows that they want the required minimum firmware to match the minimum requirements for the games.
In other words, they don't want you on the PS Store buying a game or demo that requires 3.01 if you are running 2.8. So, I bet that when the first DLC demo/game that requires something higher than 3.15, then Sony will reset the login code to match that minimum requirement.
It makes sense in Sony's eyes, except for those who know the DLC they are buying works on their version of the firmware. After all, if we are smart enough to run a proxy bypass...

I do wonder though, when are tricks will be completely disabled. I switch from the proxy to logan5 and the DNS. We just got to have fun while it lasts.
The Logan tool was working before and now stopped i'm not sure why? Also ps3 proxi version 1 isn't working. I have the latest frameware up to the the new one that removes the otheros.
