Sony is not doing this because of hacking...
...Sony is doing this to eliminate the need to support the other-os feature, and the "hack" came just in time so they can use it as an excuse.
Think about it, the Slim PS3 came without it before the hack! They did not correct the internal clock bug on the old ps3, and they won't...
They are cutting costs by supporting only one model, with less features, the PS3 slim. They just killed the old PS3.
I'm amazed that no one came to this conclusion! It's that far off?!
Thank you for the guide to ps3 proxy
oh man! I'm afraid that a week from now there will be update 3.22. just for the bypass thing.
lots of people are going to be sooo pissed.
well... i think in this update includes: bug fixes, hole fixes, OF COURSE LINUX REMOVED, and etc! But HOLE ARE FIXED 100%
Well do not update guys it is last chance to get something!
I am now online with 3.15 even though the latest is 3.21. You can bypass the 3.21 firmware check by using the PS3 Proxy Server GUI program. Just tested it, works perfectly. Redirect http://fus01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/... to the file below (download it and store ps3-updatelist.txt locally on your computer).
Edmarts i am on Windows 7 x64 and its work flawlessly! I only had that erorr with the ps3 proxy program on windows 7.
Edit: i am even using the internet on my ps3 while my ps3 is using the LG5 program to bypass the update!
After I updated my PS3 Slim (I had it set to auto off after installation), I turned it back on, and now it says
"The previous update could not be completed.
Would you like to try to update again? (80028E01)"
I'm not doing anything until someone explains to me whats the safest thing to do.
I found something interesting... I am using the LOgan5's tool -- I set it up like ps3news said in the last post, but i thought i would be kicked out of the PlayStation network if i stopped the proxy in the program. The funny part is i stopped the proxy in the program on my computer and i am still logged into the PlayStation network and can access the playstation store! This might be little trick.. not sure if it works totally, but hey test it out!!
