Today we received an e-mail from Leviathan letting us know of a recent PlayStation Home hack that he wishes to share here!
Similar to the PlayStation Home Replacement Posters & Custom Trailer, this basically uses SimpleDNS/PowerDNS, Apache Server and WireShark for HTTP sniffing.
Below is a FilePack and guide for those who wish to give this a try!

PlayStation Home Item Hack
- SimpleDNS (http://www.simpledns.com/download.aspx) or PowerDNS (http://www.powerdns.com/en/downloads.aspx) = Redirect
- Apache Server (http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi)
- WireShark (http://www.wireshark.org/download.html) = Tool for HTTP Sniffing
First install Apache Server using basic settings, once installed stop the Apache Server Service. Then copy files located in Apache File "httpd.conf" "mime.types" to C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\conf and yes when prompted overwrite Files, then start Apache Service.
Then copy HUBPS3_SVML to C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache2.2\htdocs.
Now install Simple DNS, then set a Redirect to Redirect homeps3.svo.online.scee.com to your PC IP.
Zone Name is homeps3.svo.online.scee.com
Now set your PS3 to go through Simple DNS set all Settings to Default till you come to DNS Settings. Then type the IP of your PC. Finish the setup then run Home.
Note: Don't forget to set Internet sharing on the PC.
Now Play Echochrome, once you unlocked an item leave Home then remove the redirect from SimpleDNS then Run Home.
You should now have the Items. Locked to your account.
WARNING: Any harm done to accounts doing this hack PS3 News take no responsibility for. This hack can remove items you currently have "Free Items". It will not effect paid items. You can use WireShark to find items and add them.
