April 15, 2008 // 5:26 pm - Update: Several users are reporting that they are now unable to sign in anymore with PS3 Proxy, receiving error 8002A212.

Additionally, the only changes in 2.30 per Sony are a Redesigned PLAYSTATIONŽStore, Blu-ray Disc playback now supports DTS-HD Master Audio and DTS-HD High Resolution Audio output- noting the PS3 system does not support playback of DTS-ES and DTS 96/24 for DVD-Video or DTS-ES Matrix for Blu-ray Discs.

Download: PS3 Firmware 2.30 Update (US) / PS3 Firmware 2.30 Update (EU)

As expected, the PlayStation 3 Firmware 2.30 Update is now available via Network Update or linked below.

A complete changelog will be posted as soon as it's available!

Has anyone taken a full packet capture of them logging in? This will help figuring out what is going on. Preferably one taken prior to the upgrade and then again after the upgrade.

Only as it might be blocking below a certain range (the PS3 firmware itself), so it might not allow for that variable to be under 2.3, but lets hope not!

The '+' doesn't work.

The new firmware aka the new Store I think is a great add-on. The store is much sleeker and what not. It's better categorized and it's just all around better.

The proxy issue would affect me, if I ever got it to work lol. Oh well, I'm sure soon we'll be able to get around that.

Take a look at post 25, 26
Cjpc in probable right it is checking that version, against the PS3's version

I have tried everything I can think of Sony has sent up a security wall with the new store. It will only let you go so far with the ps3 proxy that's why it asks you to update instead of the error message I have fw 2.10 when I change my software version to this below

Dest=84;CompatibleSystemSoftwareVersion=2.1000-;
It wants me to update

When I put in this
Dest=84;CompatibleSystemSoftwareVersion=2.2000-;
I get the error and when I put in this

Dest=84;CompatibleSystemSoftwareVersion=2.3000-;
It asks me to update

It knows what fw your ps3 is running regardless

I was hoping we could retain firmware update bypass. All depends on how the test for versions is handled with that new line. It may be a base constant that would break the proxy to bypass update. Don't understand the "-" in
Dest=84;CompatibleSystemSoftwareVersion=2.3000-;
Please excuse me if you've already cosidered all of this.

Would this modified ps3-updatelist.txt file work?

I'm suspecting what aldostools stated HERE applies- specifically that the PS3.Proxy works after you update to 2.30, but what it cannot currently perform is the firmware update bypass.

I have the same setup as aldostools . (PS3 F/W=2.30; using PS3Proxy; using the latest 2.30 updatelist) and I can confirm that I can Login as normal (as expected).

One thing I noticed, in the PS3Proxy Log; the new PS3 FW2.30 is retrieving new data files.
In F/W 2.17 and below ; when the PS3 logs on to PSN. I get this

Looks like in F/W 2.30 ; my guess is that, the PS3 does 2 additional things.
1: Checks the PSN Home (TBA?!?!) for updates
2: Does a Background update of the InfoBoard. (I have disabled my InfoBoard, but this ProxyLog indicates that the PS3 will start updates nonetheless)

However, What I am curious is that, the Ps3Proxy Log did not show any traffic from the PSN Store. Is it because the PSN Store does not use html/http packet headers? or, does the PS3Proxy code ignore them completely? (Perhaps this has gone off-topic)
