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 it work with a banned ps3?

Wow really dude? Back then when i had the PS2 i really didn't care about the online thing. And it was more fun, but now it's a different story with the PS3.

Hopefully for those that like online gaming, this will work for some time. Never been a online gamer myself.

Thanks for the quick response. Wow that's a lot to digest! I'm still basically a n00b for patching stuff for online play. Is there a PM system here or maybe an email I can reach you at?

Because I know I'm going to have a bunch of questions to ask, and I don't wanna clog this thread. I tried looking for those official patches but can't find it. I think I can take it from there. If that's not possible, if you can please provide a link on where to download the official patches, I'd appreciate it.

Ok, I was trying to log onto the store but I can't seem to make it, I keep getting the message about downloading a new update, I have already changed both certificates, changed both dns on the ps3 and of course, running the program on the pc, any clues? I may be doing something wrong or I forgot something

look inside the .rb-file:

1) check that ver is set to 4.25 not 4.21 (line 36)
2) check passph is set to "zvc***" not "t2w***" (line 37/38)
3) check check consoleID is not only 00000 (line 193 +/-)
4) recopy the ca27 (948 Bytes) to dev_blind
5) restart ps3

There is no proper fix for v1.23...

I first installed the 1.19-1.21 fix.
Then I extracted the 2 official patches & copied 1.23 over 1.22.
Then I copied all that over to dev_hdd0/game/BLxxxxxx
I get the 1.22 fix: I modified the 1.22fix-eboot from blus to bles & from 1.22 to 1.23
then I changed the param.sfo to 1.23
After all I copied the 4 files to ps3:
EBOOT.BIN (modified to 1.23)
PARAM.SFO (modified to 1.23)
default.self (from the 1.22fix) [Cannot modify it ]
default_mp.self (from the 1.22fix) [Cannot modify it ]
But it is playable online...
