February 9, 2011 // 7:51 am - As Sony usually does several days after each new PlayStation 3 Firmware update is released, today they have patched the proxy and PSN bypass methods following the release of the revised PS3 Firmware 3.56 rendering the PS3 DNS hacks useless once again.

Needless to say, when the next PS3 Firmware update arrives the PlayStation Network bypass methods will work again for another week or so before they are shut off, and the cycle will repeat for those unfamiliar with this pattern.

It also looks like Sony is remotely freezing PS3's that are already online using the bypass and when I unplugged the hard ps3 and booted it back up it wanted me to rebuild by database ^_^

Happened to both of my PS3's, leave me some feedback if this happed to any of you guys. Rebooted PS3's and had 2 extra applications on my XMB that were corrupt WTF?

Well it lasted 8 days, that's very long for a DNS trick, because the last time it was only like 5 days.

Confirmed. DNS bypass patched and back to NO PSN. That's my 2 cents.

This always happens days after a new Firmware release though, nothing new here. I will move this to the main page one last time though for those unaware of it and +Rep for sharing garretts228.
