Simple PS3 Proxy - PSN Firmware Version Bypass is Released

Sponsored Links
204w 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 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.

That is fine as long as you understand the limitations that come along with this program. I hope you are aware that this app only lets you connect to the psn network, sync trophies, access the store (downloads may or may not work) and not much else.

By saying, "works just fine for now" I hope you don't mislead others into thinking that it works with games too so I'm not exactly sure what you are disagreeing with because I've stated in my earlier posts what can and can't be done. You can also check the src code itself if you need to know why it does not

Hi every one, my first post here but I wanted to say that I've to disagree with DemonSeed, this program works just fine for now (unlike the DNS server that I've tried before; I always had problems with DNS servers, maybe it's because of my ISP, it seems that they don't allow me to change server).

I'd suggest you to set static ip addresses inside your network so you won't have to change the settings in the case the IPs are changed (I use DHCP reservation).
