295w ago - Update: Several users are reporting that they are now unable to sign in anymore with PS3 Proxy, receiving error 8002A212.
Additionally, the only changes in 2.30 per Sony are a Redesigned PLAYSTATION¬®Store, Blu-ray Disc playback now supports DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio output- noting the PS3 system does not support playback of DTS-ES and DTS 96/24 for DVD-Video or DTS-ES Matrix for Blu-ray Discs.
As expected, the PlayStation 3 Firmware 2.30 Update is now available via Network Update or linked below.
A complete changelog will be posted as soon as it's available!

Has your PS3 previously worked for it though? If not, it's not worth 'confirming' as it could be 100 other things that are the cause of your issue. The more specific you can be (which Firmware you were on prior to updating to 2.30, etc) the more useful your feedback will be.
Please give educated and detailed replies guys, not "same here" generic replies (these get removed daily).
What would happen if a user, who had a f/w version older than 2.3, used they f/w bypass could they access the old store, and use the PS3.Proxy or is it down already?
I thought if it is still running, atleast for the time being, could a 2.3 f/w user upload some links for new content on the store, and could we download them via PS3.Proxy through the old store if it is still online??
I have just called a friend to see if he is able just to Sign In, and once again the same error. He is running F/W1.94 and has been using the Ps3 Proxy method without any issues. So looks as if we are all going to be forced to upgrade even just to play online gaming.
