269w ago - With the release of PS3 Firmware 3.21, many are now planning to hold off updating their PlayStation 3 consoles and use one of the PS3 Proxy applications to bypass the required PS3 Firmware update to connect to PSN.

We will continue to add relevant links as they are dug up, and also links to posts with all new guides that prove useful.

Dont I need to write something in the "Proxy Port"-field?

Ok! The "proxy port"-field is black when I start Logan5 but I assumed that it defaulted to port 8080 so that's what I tried. Signed in to PSN and got an Runtime Error:5 in Logan5, but when I checked the PS3 it was signed in.

I'm currently working on a Linux solution to this problem. It will require a HTTP and DNS-server though.

The solution is simple: redirect everything from *.update.playstation.net to the HTTP-server and provide the doctored update-lists.

Good question... I think they are all geared for Windows, but I will check into it later today and report back if any support Linux also.

Hey Boss,

Do we know which are windows or linux (osx?)

It's been awhile since I've bothered with this but the PS3 System Update Bypasser BETA v0.1 worked a treat.

Thanks,
Ian
