July 14, 2009 // 9:16 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!

Download: PlayStation Home Item Hack FilePack

PlayStation Home Item Hack

Tools Required:

• SimpleDNS (http://www.simpledns.com/download.aspx) or PowerDNS (http://www.powerdns.com/en/downloads.aspx) = Redirect
• Apache Server (http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi)
• WireShark (http://www.wireshark.org/download.html) = Tool for HTTP Sniffing

Guide:

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 homeps3.svo.online.scee.com to your PC IP.

Zone Name is homeps3.svo.online.scee.com

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.

It should look like this after you edit it:







Of course with your PSN ID and IP. Leave the filename the same as before.

Open the HDI.JSP2 file and if it reads "DownloadFileServlet_fileID=0000000000&fileNameBeginsWith=Inventory-PSNIDHere.xml" change it to just read "Inventory-PSNIDHERE" of course with your psn id. ONLY THE JSP2 FILE.. It should work now. Did for me!

Thanks for posting this but are you Kulhu? Cuz This is Kulhus Item identifier. I have been following this and the post on cR and got it to work but now I am getting stuck at verifying purchased items like everyone else. I think we need an updated file pack or something. I wasn't having any issues before.

If you get the connection error it means you've done something wrong so recheck. If you win normal items you are going through normal home and not through the htdocs in apache... I know im stuck on verifying purchased items if anyone can let me know how to get past this problem I would be grateful tried everything.

I've been told there's a way past this but they wouldnt let me know how so asking any of you to shed a light thanks... I always try to help others when I can, just hope one of u will do the same.. thanks again!

Is it possible to do the same thing PS3Proxyserver? Installing Apache and the settings look like a pain in the rear.
