354w 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 PLAYSTATIONŽStore, 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.

Download: PS3 Firmware 2.30 Update (US) / PS3 Firmware 2.30 Update (EU)

As expected, the PlayStation 3 Firmware 2.30 Update is now available via Network Update or linked below.

OK- THANKS for the additional details.

Can a few others confirm what foongpl, gb14929, and balthur have stated... that PS3 Proxy no longer works with the 2.30 update generating error 8002A212?

I must admit, it sounds like Sony have indeed 'fixed' it now.

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.

So it looks like PS3.Proxy is out of luck becuase people will have to update if they want access to the store, and if you're not bothered about access to the store then you probably wont be intrested in PS3.Proxy either. Looks like they finally solved it now unfortunately.

Well the PSN would not let you to even log-in if your F/W is less than 2.30. I know the FW2.30 is required for PSN Store access; but this also affects other things, like Online Messaging/Chat ; and even Online Gaming.

IF I cannot go online to PSN.. I can't do all of those online (chat /message /play /shop). Unless the PS3 is used for Isolated Gaming ; the F/W upgrade is mandatory.

As for the PS3-Proxy; the only use I have for it, is that I can cache/backup the PKG files for re-installs using the F@H method.

FYI. My ps3 has been running F/W1.93 for ages now with no problems using the PS3 Proxy method, just tried to Sign In to the PSN, and like foongpl I now receive the error 8002A212.

I used to be able to log-in to PSN using FW2.17 using the Proxy.

Now I get the PSN network error 8002A212.

If a few others can confirm this, I will add it to the Site News post... I just want more than 1-2 user confirmations before doing so.
