June 13, 2012 // 6:46 pm - Following up on last week's revision, today PlayStation 3 developer drizzt84 has updated FckPSN to version 0.8 to support PS3 Firmware under 3.55 and RubyDNS v0.4.

Download: FckPSN v0.8 for PS3 / / RubyDNS 0.3.4 + Fix for Ruby 1.9.3 / / Dev_Blind.pkg / Dev_Blind.GeoHot.pkg / CA27.cer / GIT


  • CA27.cer, dev_blind.pkg, FckPSN-v0.8.exe
  • OpenPS3FTP v1.3 or later


v0.8: Re-add support for firmwares older than 3.55
v0.7b: Should fix problems with Kmeaw, geohot, or any other CFW (Windows/Linux instructions have also been updated).
v0.7: Add support for 4.11 spoofing
v0.6: Use an empty consoleid. Warning: be sure to get my 0.6 version
v0.5: Add support for firmwares older than 3.55
v0.4: Don't use PS3DNS anymore


  • Install dev_blind.pkg and OpenPS3FTP on your PS3 (using FTP, external USB or what else)
  • Launch dev_blind and make it mount the flash
  • Open OpenPS3FTP
  • Connect via FTP to PS3 (using username root and password openbox)
  • Go to /dev_blind/data/cert
  • Rename CA27.cer to CA27.cer.bak
  • Put my CA27.cer as /dev_blind/data/cert/CA27.cer
  • Set the PS3's PRIMARY and SECONDARY DNS server to your PC's IP address
  • Reboot your PS3
  • Start FckPSN-v0.7.exe
  • Enjoy with PSN


If you have followed the OLD guide you need to rename the original CA27.cer to CA27.cer.bak and (my) CA24.cer to CA27.cerand you have to restore the old CA24.cer, by renaming CA24.cer.bak to CA24.cer. This is needed since some games use the original CA24.cer. If you lost original cert, you can take it here (above).


Q: FckPSN does not start or prints "Address already in use" as error
A: Close anything that is using port 80 or 443, try also to close skype and to disable ICS if you are using it.

Using under Linux

Developers Section

Build EXE (Windows only)

  • Install Ruby for Windows (
  • Install eventmachine beta gem install eventmachine --pre
  • Install required gems by opening the "Ruby Command Line" and typinggem install ocra rainbow rubydns windows-pr win32console
  • [Workaround] If you are using Ruby 1.9.3 you need to use a fixed RubyDNS version, so download and install it by typing gem install rubydns-0.3.4+ruby1.9.3.gem
  • Launch: ocra --icon FckPSN.ico FckPSN.rb data\*
  • You will have FckPSN.exe file

From Twitter (via!/drizzthacks):

Does the Console ID hiding feature still work? (December 2014/FckPSN v1.0)

I'm pretty sure I know the answer to this already, but I just wanted to throw it out there. I'm gonna be buying my first Mac Book Pro tomorrow and wondering if there's a Mac version compatible for fckpsn. I'm guessing no?

After checking drizzt's site, he has a Debian/Ubuntu/Linux version. Am I able to install one of those, or would I have to install a Windows virtual machine in order to run the Windows version? Please advise. Thanks!

So here we go, I call this Blade-Mod, an FckPSN Mod which includes add-ons, skins, settings and detailed information integrated into the application based off FckPSN by drizzt.

Download: Blade-Mod: FckPSN Mod with Add-Ons, Skins, Settings and Details / GIT

I like this method because all spoofs are on fly by PSN on DEX without installing something on PS3 (except for the ca27).

I know, almost no one needs it anymore (at least not for PS3 Firmware 4.25), but for all those like me, who for example don't want to change IDPS on DEX, or needs some settings to be variable, can use this tool to set all kinds of spoof settings. Get my rar -> its a ready to use pack.

From the ReadMe file:

Blade-Mod.exe: This is the modded Version of drizzt's FckPSN to allow (add-ons, designs & settings) & give you more details. (drizzt is the original creator of FckPSN)

Blade-Conf.exe: This is a self-written Configuration-Add-on for easyly edit all on-fly-by-spoof settings (PS3-FW-Ver, Target-ID, Region, Mainboard Revision, IDPS)

Blade-Settings.yml: Externalized Settings-Communication-File

CA27.cer: You know what it is...

Finally, here is the source code of Blade-Mod.exe (modded FckPSN):

What's the catch with the PSN Access PUP... multiman, backups, and online all working?... isn't this too good to be true?
