119w ago - As Sony usually does several days after each new PlayStation 3 Firmware update is released, today they have patched the proxy and PSN bypass methods following the release of the revised PS3 Firmware 3.56 rendering the PS3 DNS hacks useless once again.
Needless to say, when the next PS3 Firmware update arrives the PlayStation Network bypass methods will work again for another week or so before they are shut off, and the cycle will repeat for those unfamiliar with this pattern.
It also looks like Sony is remotely freezing PS3's that are already online using the bypass and when I unplugged the hard ps3 and booted it back up it wanted me to rebuild by database ^_^
Happened to both of my PS3's, leave me some feedback if this happed to any of you guys. Rebooted PS3's and had 2 extra applications on my XMB that were corrupt WTF?

I don't get why some of you connect modding your console to cheating in a game. They're two totally seperate things, don't get them mixed up.
I'm all for modding consoles, but totally against cheating in games; it takes all the fun out. Most people who mod their consoles won't even bother with cheating in games... It's pointless. The two are not connected, so stop making useless connections. Cheaters will be cheaters, modders can be cheaters, but not all are.
That's like saying a hotdog tastes like a hamburger... Makes no sense, does it?
is there any way to load ofw 3.56 from a usb pen using that custom usb loader app that was about, but patch it not to restart or dismount the bluray drive then we could load backups or homebrew then load the ofw 3.56 from usb and play online, or create a virtual server and find what the info ps3 sends and what it requires to access psn.
i read that the dns trick just sends info of update required is 0.00 so your system will never give message of update required as its always going to be above 0.00, so can a virtual server do or patch these checks then allow psn access?
Sony has fixed the fail they made with the random number generation, that is why there is no 3.56 CFW.
I have a few consoles, one on 3.56 and more on 3.41, this covers everything for me so I see no point getting hacked consoles on PSN, sony can change anything they want server side at any time so dont expect any CFW to get you online for very long if at all. It will be a constant losing battle with no real end so what is the point.
Also look at what has happened to MW2 lately with all the extra menus and people flying care package helicopters etc, the game is ruined. If hacked consoles get online again you can garauntee it will cause more cheating in online games (I know the first MW2 hacks were to save files but this is different)
