257w 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.
While most of the applications, guides and videos are quite dated (from 2007-2009), below are links to some to make navigating easier. Special THANKS to ekrboi and themiker for making recent guides as well, also available below.
We will continue to add relevant links as they are dug up, and also links to posts with all new guides that prove useful.
How to Bypass PS3 Firmware 3.21 and Connect to PSN Guides:
DNS masquerading using a router allows me to connect to PSN but I have the same issue with the Playstation Store, getting the error message "This service is not available in your country/region".
Home is working fine though, it was also updated to the latest version.
Same thing was happening to me... no problems last night, but today no access. same error message.So I thought I would try and play on line with resistance: fall of man... played this with no problems for about 30 min. Stopped playing and then tried to access the the playstation store... success I'm not sure what was going on... but this seemed to work for me.
something is up i can't get on the PSN store via logans tool says the store is not available in my country/region not to mention i seem to be half retarted or something and cat get the PS3 to connect to the PS3 proxi im gonna go take a nap now but i'll be back with screen shots and what not if there needed. but yah any help with PS3 proxi would be kool like i said i must be retarted or some thing or any confirmation that the PSN US store may be down or that logans tool is causing the problem would be kool to (i was browsing the store just fine yesterday).
well i started getting the runtime error for logans tool it stil logs in tho (odd) also noticed that you dont hae to be logged into PSN to connect to netflix (kool thing i suppose that net flix cant force us to be screwed by updating) but trying to leave my wireless configuration set for logans tool and trying to use netflix is definitly a no go this DDWRT thing might be a good soloution
how ever (i have a linksys wireless G WRT54G v3) ive been wanting to play with it for a bit now and havent had a good reason till now (how hard is it to mess up the flash btw) but my question is how do i set up something that will allow me to connect to netflix as well as PSN without forcing the update any one got some kind of configuration there using that does this for them whats the trick here
Also interested in a detailed tutorial for DDWRT bypassing if its more relyable than any of the tools and lag reducing (as id asume it would be as data isent relayed from my PS3 through my Router to my PC and back to the router than the internet) but ya any feed back on these issues would be kool
ps3 proxi 1.1 rc3 should let you do that. logan5 didnt let me update games but ps3 proxi did
i'm assuming it should work with netflix, and life with playstation too.
to everyone: sorry for going slightly off topic but how much data (downloads) approximately would life with playstation/folding@home take if i left it on overnight for 10hours at 150kilobytes/sec
edit: gave wrong details (meant to put upload speed), and i figured it out anyway.
