January 31, 2011 // 7:07 pm - Today Hideki has released what he calls Simple PS3 Proxy, a PSN Firmware version bypass application which functions similar to the other PSN bypass methods.

Download: Simple PS3 Proxy

From the ReadMe file: Set on your PS3 a web proxy of (PC IP) port 8080

IE: if the machine you are to be running this proxy on is then put that as the IP and 8080 as the port in the PS3 network configuration for your web proxy.

If 3.56 is still current, just run the app and click start. If 3.60 or later is now out, change the 3.5600 value in required PS3 version to 3.6000 or similar.

As long as the PS3 is correctly configured and this app is running, you will be signed in. This is licensed under version 2 of the GNU public licence, see license.txt for details. Source code is included in the archive in /src

This software may not be sold, this software may not be bundled with things being sold, this software (or any derivative works) may not be distributed without the license and its source.

Please do not cheat in online games, it makes you a lamer and aggravates Sony. Hi to the people of #Amiga, #Atheism, #Pharyngula, #PSGroove etc.

Possible errors

On PC:

If you get an error about mswinsck.ocx being missing, either run the proxy app as administrator or copy the included .ocx file (in \ocx) to \windows\system32. (or if you prefer, download and install the microsoft VB6 runtimes which include this required file but also a large number of other not required files...)

MS VB6 Runtime KB article link:

On PS3:

Error 8071053D - You are not running the proxy or the IP/Port are wrong.

Update request - You have not setup the proxy on PS3 side or Sony have worked around this workaround.

Check the IP address of your computer.

  • Start
  • Run
  • Type 'CMD' (Minus Quotes)
  • Type 'ipconfig' (Minus Quotes; In the black box that opens)

That will give you your computers IP address, use that instead of the as the example guide shows.

Might have to get this and see what it does. There are some simple things you can replace, but (for instance) you won't get 3.41 online again easily because there are new signature fields passed to the PSN.

Unless this guy has reverse engineered them of course.

From what i read, this only allows XMB psn access and not online game access. Is this true?

Cool, I guess... But what would impress me is to make a PSN bypass with FW 3.41

Those of you having problems with the missing ocx... you have to pull the ocx from the file and pull it to the folder where the app is for it to work. Putting in the windows/system 32 won't do it.
