243w ago - With the release of PS3 Firmware 3.21, many are now planning to hold off updating their PlayStation 3 consoles and use one of the PS3 Proxy applications to bypass the required PS3 Firmware update to connect to PSN.
While most of the applications, guides and videos are quite dated (from 2007-2009), below are links to some to make navigating easier. Special THANKS to ekrboi and themiker for making recent guides as well, also available below.
We will continue to add relevant links as they are dug up, and also links to posts with all new guides that prove useful.

I quite like burp suite, pitty you need to pay anually for the pro version and £149 is considerable amount of money if you don't really use it professionally But even with free version you can do a lot and I suggest everyone to get the lates 1.3 version and do a bit fidling around (it's Java based so it will indeed work on any platform supporting Java) ...
Thanks for the link to ssl strip - I'll have a look at that one too.
they had the cheek to highlight that my ps3 was replaced 2 times and replaced as a gesture of goodwill.
Then you should highlight to them that with every replacement the warranty starts to count from start and last time I checked is 2 years in the EU. So after every replacement you have 2 full years of warranty, so simple.
