263w ago - Update: As over 60 users are reporting below, it appears Sony has finally added a version check blocking PS3 Proxy methods for PSN. Additionally, 8002A212 is an error returned by the PSN servers during authentication (invalid version) and 8002A227 means your console is banned (OpenPSID = blacklisted).

A few weeks back we posted several methods to Bypass PS3 Firmware 3.21 and Connect to PSN, and today dc740 has updated his PS3 Firmware check remover dubbed PS3NoUpdate to version 3.0 with a guide while jabberosx has coded up an installer and FAQ for the tool.

Download: PS3NoUpdate v3.0 With SRC / PS3NoUpdate Installer

To quote: I wrote a simple program that uses the known DNS method to bypass the firmware check... but with one difference... you only have to configure 1 line in 1 file, and that's it... then you just run it (windows/linux/anything that supports java).

I have added the java policy file. And changed the scripts.. also the HOW TO run he program must be updated.

The application must be run as administrator (or root in linux) because it uses ports 53 and 80 (double check that no other application is using them!)

The attachment includes the application source code in Java too.

Simple answer: no.

If the game requires an update to a newer FW (Red Dead Redemption... http://www.ps4news.com/playstation-3-psn-news/red-dead-redemption-requires-ps3-firmware-3-21-or-higher/) then no you can't.

If the game doesn't require the newer FW (which is unlikely) then play as much as you want.

well we want linux back just to continue playing on line when we spending our time trying to find a definitive hack to be able to run unsigned code

By installing newer CFW firmware after 3.30? like Sony make it, and than we are modify it and get OTHEROS for example on 3.40 ha?

Hey I would love to try this new program you have running to bypass the firmware. Im running 3.15 right now. The other problem is is that i haven't put any type of Linux on my computer ps3 just yet.

I'm slowly figuring out what the sony is truly capable of doing. So i'm pretty much new to the game but i too; out of many didn't want to upgrade as well. I just need a little guidance to get my feet off the ground.

You are correct as I had a number of unfinished game demos downloads in my queue which were completed after the proxy hack ban.

Yes, apparently, but error codes can be misleading, especially when spoofing is involved.

Two easy ways to find out:

1. update;

or,

2. log in using your PSN account on a 3.3 console.
