252w 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.
How to Bypass PS3 Firmware 3.21 and Connect to PSN Guides:

Dont I need to write something in the "Proxy Port"-field?
Ok! The "proxy port"-field is black when I start Logan5 but I assumed that it defaulted to port 8080 so that's what I tried. Signed in to PSN and got an Runtime Error:5 in Logan5, but when I checked the PS3 it was signed in.
