Just tried LG5Tool (Logan5) method. Works flawlessly for my 40GB Fat on FW 3.15. Laptop running the tool is using Windows 7 32bit. PS3 is on a wired connection to a router subnet which the laptop is also connected to.
- Able to access PSN.
- Able to access Store.
- Able to play Bad Company 2 online.
- Unable to access PS Home (Said it was down for essential maintenance)
For PS3.ProxyServer.GUI, you have to use "reflector" to extract .NET source code and recompile it with visual studio 2005+ (you must change the source code a little bit).
Thanks to all who helped out in this thread. The Logan5 method worked on my first try.
Let's just hope a better workaround comes about before new games come out that require the update.
Thank you for the summary of methods. Was able to get PS3 Proxy up and running pretty painlessly.
Hopefully a more permanent solution is forthcoming!
I used the PS3 Proxi and it worked like a charm. Running on Windows 7 x86 (a.k.a. 32-bit)
I am hoping for a more permanent solution as well.
1. Use the Logan5 as described by BOSS here: http://www.ps3news.com/forums/playst...tml#post288022
2. When you want to download a file Logan5 fails, so just stop it, close it and then run PS3 Proxi 1.1 configured as its "help" tab says and without exiting PSN, press the download button and you're there!
Don't think I'd use it without the host's permission, though.
