    Updated via the HTTP server


    In the fw 200,002 was added the option "Updated via the HTTP server"

    Debug Settings -> Update Server URL

    This makes it easier management of the fw from our pc.
    It is not necessary to follow the exact steps with directories, also know if the official way, but you can find this and finally it works.


    "Debug Settings

    -Update Server URL

    http://192.168.0.X/ps3-updatelist.txt (192.168.0.x -> The IP of our pc)

    In doing so the option is available: Update via Internet-> System Update


    We must install a web server, Apache or another, in this case was Apache, install normally.

    We look for the folder / htdocs (Program Files / Apache / htdocs) where we can create other folders to hold multiple fw or just put it in the root.

    / Apache/htdocs/update/ps3

    / 220/PS3UPDAT.PUP -> fw 2.20 debug
    / 242/PS3UPDAT.PUP -> fw 2.42 debug
    / 315/PS3UPDAT.PUP -> fw 3.15 debug

    In the root, / httdocs, copy the following files: ps3-updatelist.txt, it is important Dest = XX is the number 82 would be the flag that corresponds to the ps3_test, (81-reference tool, 82 - debugging station, 83 "JAP, etc. ..)


    # DE
    Dest = 82; ImageVersion = 0000a20e; SystemSoftwareVersion = 2.5200; CDN =; CDN_Timeout = 30;

    This would be to install the version 2.52.

    For version 3.15 would be the next, and so for each version you just have to change the number.

    Dest = 82; ImageVersion = 0000a20e; SystemSoftwareVersion = 3.1500; CDN =; CDN_Timeout = 30;

    And this would be the method, for up to download the version,you can have all the versions hosted on your pc.

    I regret not being able to give a better explanation, the English language is a real problem for me and I thought that the more simple it would be better understood, now I'll try to do it in more detail.

    Apache HTTP Server ----> http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi I use this: Win32 OpenSSL 0.9.8m Including Binary (MSI Installer)

    Install Apache http server with the default options: c:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\apache2.2\....\htdocs

    The /htdocs directory is where you copy ps3-updatelist.txt and PS3UPDAT.PUP, so as to create the folders if you want to host more than one version of fw, is where PS3 will connect.

    Create or edit ps3-updatelist.txt:

    [Register or Login to view code]

    Dest=82 -> Debugging_station flag.
    SystemSoftwareVersion = 3.1500 -> The version of fw -> The ip of your pc (run-> cmd.exe-> ipconfig)
    /Update/ps3/315/ -> Copy PS3UPDAT.PUP in /315/

    Copy final file ps3-updatelist.txt in /htdocs folder:..../Apache2.2/htdocs/ps3-updatelist.txt

    All this can do otherwise, edit ps3-updatelist.txt or have several, create folders or not, just edit and modify the route. Here are ps3-updatelist.txt ps3-prepared for the 2.20,2.52 and 3.15 fw.

    In the /htdocs create the following folders:

    / Update/ps3 /
    / 220 /
    / 252 /
    / 315 /

    -Copy debug fw 2.20 (PS3UPDAT.PUP) in the / 220 /
    -Copy debug fw 2.52 (PS3UPDAT.PUP) in the / 252 /
    -Copy debug fw 3.15 (PS3UPDAT.PUP) in the / 315 /

    *Start Apache

    Ps3 Debugging Station
    "Debug Settings"
    "Update Server URL"

    Add the following en "Update Server URL":

    http://192.168.0.X/ps3-updatelist.txt (192.168.0.x -> The IP of Our pc)

    Return to the XMB and select "System Update".The option "Update via Internet" will be enabled.

    If you select "Update via Internet" the process is exactly like that when upgrading a retail PS3 online, in this case the fw (PS3UPDAT.PUP) is downloaded from our pc served by Apache server,both up or down version.

    A final explanatory picture:

    I hope this is it. bye

    Thumbs Up

    Nice way of managing updates, also it seems very effective.

    Is the update process you have put together here is that on server in your house or is it located somewhere else?

    It is only a server at home, maybe there is your own server, like the ps3 shop: //fshop01.ps3.update.playstation.net /...

    I did some combinations, but never got a result, for example changing "shop" with 'dex ',' dech', etc. ..

    I believe that its use is only offline, I guess if you work with debug multiple units in one place, at a time should go up or down versions for testing, this would be a most convenient way to access the fw warehouse, so to speak, just as I imagined, actually I have no idea.
