Simple PS3 Proxy - PSN Firmware Version Bypass is Released


Sponsored Links
182w ago - Today Hideki has released what he calls Simple PS3 Proxy, a PSN Firmware version bypass application which functions similar to the other PSN bypass methods.

Download: Simple PS3 Proxy

From the ReadMe file: Set on your PS3 a web proxy of (PC IP) port 8080

IE: if the machine you are to be running this proxy on is 192.168.0.12 then put that as the IP and 8080 as the port in the PS3 network configuration for your web proxy.

If 3.56 is still current, just run the app and click start. If 3.60 or later is now out, change the 3.5600 value in required PS3 version to 3.6000 or similar.

As long as the PS3 is correctly configured and this app is running, you will be signed in. This is licensed under version 2 of the GNU public licence, see license.txt for details. Source code is included in the archive in /src

This software may not be sold, this software may not be bundled with things being sold, this software (or any derivative works) may not be distributed without the license and its source.

Please do not cheat in online games, it makes you a lamer and aggravates Sony. Hi to the people of #Amiga, #Atheism, #Pharyngula, #PSGroove etc.

Possible errors

On PC:

If you get an error about mswinsck.ocx being missing, either run the proxy app as administrator or copy the included .ocx file (in \ocx) to \windows\system32. (or if you prefer, download and install the microsoft VB6 runtimes which include this required file but also a large number of other not required files...)

On PS3:

Error 8071053D - You are not running the proxy or the IP/Port are wrong.

Update request - You have not setup the proxy on PS3 side or Sony have worked around this workaround.

This program functions only by making checks using Instr and Replace for changing certain strings (basically the version number). This alone is not enough, it will only grant PSN network connection. It does not forward additional data properly for it to function (and this is why you get the 80028ED5 error).

The src code is available so anyone can make changes to it easily. Just remember to forward packets to destination and act as middle man (since the app itself is acting as a simple tcp server). Like the user above has shown, there are really more variables that are best used as a comparison for replacing strings which are


Of course it will work if you merely change just the version number, but I do recall at some points the firmware version checks also refer to the above (ImageVersion etc) so it may ocassionally fail.

For anyone that is considering to use this, don't bother if you want to play games with it. For now it literally only allows a connection to PSN network and that is all. You cannot use it with any games and perhaps some other services. You should at least be able to sync trophies at best but downloads from PSN store may or may not work. That said, just use one of the other many proxy programs available or the dns method.

You cannot, I repeat, you cannot play games with this online until the author fixes this program. Also all the proxy programs and dns method will all cease to work at the same time, this is normal and always happens. For every minor incremental update proxies are usually fine, sometimes even working for the whole duration between minor incremental updates until a major or mandatory update.

I hope that answers any upcoming questions that need answering. I am certain the author will fix it in time (as he is currently aware of this).
