Sorry to ask, but I'm new here. Don't know too much about the ps3 nor am I that tech savvy but would replacing the HDD and keeping the original one untouched and updated, work?
Take out the old one that hasn't been updated and put a new one and update it to 3.21. I guess it boils down to: Can you have 2 HDD that are interchangeable? Sorry if this is such a noob question.
umm what if i didn't know about this and already did update, is there no hope now?
whimpers ok thanks, seems to be really nice people here.
I am also trying to bypass the 3.21 firmware and I was wondering if someone could help me. I'm currently on 2.80.
I have setup internet sharing in windows and when I run a connection test on the PS3 it says successful on both getting the IP address and Internet Connection. So thats all fine.
When I run Logans tool it comes up with 3.21 in the firmware update version box on the PC (which suggests its working) but on the PS3 I get "you have been signed out of the playstation network" when signing in.
If I tick the firmware update box on Logans tool I get an update prompt on the PS3 so I dont get why unticking it doesn't work.
When I try the older PS3 Proxy Server GUI program the logs come up on the PC and I replace the text file but it still does not sign into PSN, same error.
Basically what am I doing wrong? Is there something else I have to adjust on the PC?
I would really appreciate the help!!
Have you recently used the proxy server prior to 3.21? It used to work for me until around Oct-Nov. I believe when 3.10 came out, they changed the PSN login handshake.
BTW - if you have a PS3 user that is not associated to the PSN ID, you can browse the PSN store with the proxy bypass (and it gives you the update prompt without the proxy). That's why I think it is a login protocol change.
Using the LG5Tool, if you're in one user account on psn, sign out and switch to another user account on the same ps3 and attempt to sign in I get the 8002A212 error. Simply stopping and starting the LG5Tool again before signing on fixed this for me.

Of course put in the address that is applicable to your region and the IP of your local webserver. Then add the ps3-updatelist.txt to the appropriate folder on your webserver.
If you're really astute, you can even use the router's internal webserver to host the file for you.
Could you please explain to me how setup your ddwrt route to redirect the request ps3 update.txt file to local server. i have already added the fus01.ps3.update.playstation.net in the additional dns. i'm trying to use the builtin webserver of the router.
i've moved the router admin page to port 81. so my other webserver is running on port 80 on the router and home directory is /jffs.
i've put the "ps3-updatelist.txt" in the /jffs folder.
now the problem is, through my browser when i point to" http://fus01.ps3.update.playstation.net/ps3-updatelist.txt" i can download the file.
BUT i believe the PS3's requested path is "http://fus01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/list/us/ps3-updatelist.txt"
How can i fix it, please help. Thanks
