Hey guys, this is the first time I've ever posted something big about something I'm doing.
anyways this has bugged me for a while.
I won't post how this works but I hope SOON, users will be able to bypass Sony's firmware check, YET AGAIN, and could never get patched!
this program will be done in visualC# and visualBasic .net (2.0)
You will need the .NET framework to run this program but I'm sure that won't be a problem with all the microsoft updates and what-not.
My current knowledge with SSL is utter crap, but that doesn't mean I won't give up! this program will basically intercept the PS3's DIRECT connnection to "auth.np.ac.playstation.net" and retrieve the server certificate. In other words, it's a proxy.
Upon release, (hopefully soon), I will be hard-coding a member's PSN ID into the program, and they'll have to enter it into a box upon execution. That way actual SCE devs won't be able to crack it open very easily. I'll also be packing this with some wicked, yes (wicked) - features.
As of right now I'm waiting for DemonSeed to post me a reply to pm. I need some more insight on exactly what the PS3 connects to, since leads to nothing I can use.
