Sponsored Links
224w ago - Update: PS3 Download Manager / Booster 3.60 is now available, with more performance fixes as outlined HERE, followed shortly by PS3 Download Manager / Booster 3.62 and a PSNDM Plugin.

Today PS3 Download Manager / Booster 3.57 is available which includes some major improvements!

Please refer to this thread for a description and details about the application, includes links to versions before as well.

Snippet from change log:
• Improved download system, to prevent overwriting existing files / downloading wrong file.
• Uses a folder layout to resolve conflicts with same filenames but different file.
• Enhanced range of Playstation Content support, (A bug stopped the program from accepting all file formats, like png)
• Improved stability of the application
• Outputs a Log.txt containing urls captured by the application, to allow you to add the file extension; if you want it to be captured in the download manager / booster.
• Now allows you to change to port the proxy uses by creating a file called port.txt otherise default of 27.
• Fixed bug, where a message keeps appearing on start-up; this will only appear when theres an update and will not display a load of garbage
• Fixed download issue, with files not being saved in the location given in path.txt
• Slight performance improvments by reducing the length of the code for several operations.

Known bug (Not really worth fixing atm, as it fixes it's self):
• When signing in for the first time, you'll get an error; however it should resolve it's self on the second attempt and work first time afterwards.
• iPlayer App Crashes proxy.exe but I think if you remove the file extensions from the ext.txt for the file types you don't want, it should fix it.

Hope you, enjoy the updates; you might need to look at the ext.txt as it depends on which functions you want, as some files cause issues.

Common User use the following:


Playstation Home Users use:

You might find more file types related to applications, in the Log.txt and if you do then simply add it into the ext.txt to use the download manager to handle this file type, remember some file types will cause conflict with applications on the console.

Hi, I'm back again and I've managed to solve the problem (With the replicated error code).

Over the last hour I've been visiting some of my testers, and we've run through some comparisons between my version of the software and theirs.

During the change from firmware 3.41 to 3.50, it caused a hick-up when reading the information from the proxy, caused by the proxy maintaining some old cache which doesn't normally affect firmware updates; but because Sony tried to prevent proxy methods, it's confusing the proxy and the PS3.

In a simple sentence, the proxy is trying to tell the PS3 your running firmware 3.41 still and the PS3 is saying NO !!!!. Hence the error.

A simple solution for this is to delete the entire contents of the application and make a fresh download; you'll get an error message when you first sign-in to the playstation network, wait about 5 minutes as their should be downloads popping up on the manager (PC). The error (first time only) is because it's refreshing the information.

Hopefully Sony won't make anymore changes to proxy methods, at least it's not a major issue at the moment.

If this issue, still occurs then I'd be very confused as it's fixed it for my testers and my replicated error code.

A.k.a If it's still not working just let me know, and I'll try and help you

A new plugin demonstration: [Register or Login to view links]

The new plugin demonstration is for budding developers to design a useful piece of software to further extend the use of the proxy server, it will demonstrate a potential use of the plugin SDK previously released.

In this demonstration the application will use information stored in the cache, to display a list of games played on the console. (.XML must be enabled in the Ext.txt for this to work)

Hi, Bloodheaven.

Their does seem to be something wrong with the proxy after Sony's update to firmware 3.50, as it does work for me (99% of the time) but then people I know locally who've been testing the latest releases, are encountering issues connecting to the Playstation Network.

I'll be investigating this over the next few days and will report back with a solution hopefully, but it might be beyond my control depending on changes implemented by Sony.

From, Jordan Dyckes have a nice day...

Update: Just been able to replicate the error code (80028EA6) by manipulating the traffic, and it could of been caused by information being not updated from the proxy. Will continue researching for a solution.

Hello Jordandyckes,

I changed ports, and you prog doens't return any error anymore. But I doesn't work either.

With FW 3.42 it doens't bypass FW upadte and can't log in PSN without last FW (3.50). So I did update it, and after obtaining IP adress, PS3 returns 80028ea6 error.

Can't do anything more... Do you have an idea?

I'm afraid not. I just tried this myself. Put in a massive 640 GB HDD and put 3.41 back on but it requires you to sign on to the PSN in order to activate your console again and re-download licenses to play the games you purchased/got off psnplus.

Hope someone can release a proxy which will work again then I can re-activate all my content.

Btw: Some content I could play (e.g. Wipeout HD still worked)
