April 15, 2008 // 3:26 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!

It's nice to see now people aren't receiving the error they were before... which makes me wonder if it's due to the server-side update CJPC did tonight, or inaccurate reports initially.

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 confirm that I'm not recieving any errors using PS3.Proxy with new F/W 2.30 yet either. I let you know if anything happens with it though.

If you knew the error code it may help.. some codes are listed publically, so it may be worth the effort to re-check the exact error number.

Hey all,

I'm not running a proxy, but when I go to sign in, I get an error (this is off the top of my head) saying:

Could not sign in. Error xxxxxxxxx - This is a DNS Error.

Before this update I did not have a problem.

The whole idea of the ps3 proxy is so you don't have to update your ps3 and still get on the psn. So of course it's going to work if you update.

I think cjpc has it right it is checking that version, against the PS3's version.

I can confirm that the PS3.Proxy works after you update to 2.30. What it cannot currently perform is the firmware update bypass.

Just replace your local ps3-updatelist.txt with the new content for 2.30 (look it in the post by sbdman above), update your PS3 to 2.30 and the proxy will continue working.

Well, I can not recall if this was in previous updates, I dont think that it was:


I am wondering if it is checking that version, against the PS3's version. Way to tell, someone change it and try again! Or If someone would post their FW version, I can change ours to match, and see what happens!
