July 14, 2009 // 7:16 am - Update #2: Casshern23 has now created an updated guide on How to Get Closed Beta & Other Items Free in PlayStation Home.

Update: For those having issues with the FilePack below, give the PlayStation Home Item Hack FilePack Fix a try with the Updated Guide!

Today we received an e-mail from Leviathan letting us know of a recent PlayStation Home hack that he wishes to share here!

Similar to the PlayStation Home Replacement Posters & Custom Trailer, this basically uses SimpleDNS/PowerDNS, Apache Server and WireShark for HTTP sniffing.

Below is a FilePack and guide for those who wish to give this a try!

PlayStation Home Item Hack

Tools Required:

• SimpleDNS ( or PowerDNS ( = Redirect
• Apache Server (
• WireShark ( = Tool for HTTP Sniffing


First install Apache Server using basic settings, once installed stop the Apache Server Service. Then copy files located in Apache File "httpd.conf" "mime.types" to C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/conf and yes when prompted overwrite Files, then start Apache Service.

Then copy HUBPS3_SVML to C:/Program Files/Apache Software Foundation/Apache2.2/htdocs.

Now install Simple DNS, then set a Redirect to Redirect to your PC IP.

Zone Name is

Now set your PS3 to go through Simple DNS set all Settings to Default till you come to DNS Settings. Then type the IP of your PC. Finish the setup then run Home.

Note: Don't forget to set Internet sharing on the PC.

Now Play Echochrome, once you unlocked an item leave Home then remove the redirect from SimpleDNS then Run Home.

You should now have the Items. Locked to your account.

WARNING: Any harm done to accounts doing this hack PS3 News take no responsibility for. This hack can remove items you currently have "Free Items". It will not effect paid items. You can use WireShark to find items and add them.

Here is the updated FilePack.. the only changes/additions to the guide were as follows:
Time outs = Check that Apache is set to port 10060
Not being able to login to PSN = Check that you PC has been set to share internet connection.

Also be sure to double check you stopped Apache when copying the Apache files then remember to Start it.

Aside from that, grab the new FilePack and delete your old ones and then give it a try.

Thanks for that. I tried to change it, but it didn't work.

Hopefully we get the update of the tutorial later on.

I mailed this thread to Leviathan (who made the guide) and he replied saying he will improve the guide tonight with an updated one/FAQ available tomorrow morning.

Until then, all I can suggest is to wait and see if anyone else figures out what is causing the error. I will +Rep those who lend a hand...

Sadly, I don't have the time nor interest to get involved with PS Home stuff myself. Those who do go on Home frequently and are familiar with SimpleDNS/Apache/etc are the ones who can be of assistance here for troubleshooting.
