289w ago - Update: PS3 Proxi v1.1 is now available, which adds new options in the log and redirects, a help tab, setup guide and a PS3 System Update bypass.

PS3 Proxi v1.0 is now released!

Download: PS3 Proxi v1.0

What?
PS3PROXi is my take on how the PS3.ProxyServer.GUI should have been.
It does all the same stuff, redirects to local files, logs traffic/addresses etc.

Why?
As soon as I started to use the original PS3.ProxyServer.GUI, I wanted to create my own. And try to improve upon the original.

Did you say Improved?
Yea, I think I have improved it. Added new features like:
• Tray Icon
• Updated GUI
With many more features planned.

NOTE:
I currently did this when I should have been revising for exams. I have them for the next week, so I wont be working on [hopefully] adding my planned features.

Planned Features do NOT include a way to bypass the store redirect, this is imposible [To my knowlege], NO iSO Loader etc.

Still Kinda WiP, so excuse any bugs :P

PS3PROXi v1.0 Instructions:

1. Extract all contents into a folder, making sure the config file is there.
2. Run 'PS3PROXi.exe'
3. Go to the settings tab and port of YOUR PC
4. Make sure you PS3 is set to use your PC's IP as the proxy.
5. Done.

V1.0 15/11/09 -Initial Release

@NZHawk - re the missing text issue....
Are you setting the label ForeColor and BackColor to a fixed color or are you using the system standards (e.g. ControlText / HighlightText etc)

Just a thought - I've encountered the missing text stuff previously myself and it has always been down to the environment i've tested it in having a different color scheme to the one with the problem. If you stick to the system options they (normally) look ok whatever the scheme, because they're all designed to work together. If you specifically set them to a fixed color they don't always work with the rest of the scheme.

Please take this in the way i indended it (i.e. helpful) and don't take any offence as none is intended.

P.s. I'm quite interested in the way the proxy stuff works, don't suppose you would like to share any snippets of your code with me? (you can contact me via the contact details on my profile page if you are happy to).

Hey, Err. So I' not sure whats up with the dodgy image lol. This is what it looks like for me: (See Attachments)

p.s. Why don't you detect the IP address of the PC and use that, rather than ask for it?
(I guess the best option is to set it to the default IP of the active network card, then the more advanced of us can change it if necessary??)

Not a bad idea actually lol. I might see what I can do if I have a spare minuite from MW:2 lol (Need that Platinum )

Oh, and about the AU thing people are saying aint changing. It dunt change because it doesent need to be to bypass the update.

From what I have found, In order to bypass the update, the only thing that needs to change is:
Original:

The "Dest=" string MUST match the PS3s region code.
The "ImageVersion=" string needs to match the imageversion of the "CDN=" linked string.

Modded Working ps3-update.txt for AU/NZ PS3

Modded Working ps3-update.txt for US PS3 -- (I am PRETTY sure the "CDN=" URL, does NOT need to contain your region "us". PLEASE someone confirm this, and ill change the PS3PROXi):

As I have JUST (30 mins ago) Updated to 3.10, I cannot test New things out anymore lol.

Hiya I have the same problem as ingersoj, i can't see the text on the settings page - could you enlighten me on what the three checkboxes are for please.

OS: XP SP3 set to "performance mode" (ie none of that XP styling, green button n what not)

cheers,

There is also seems to be a bug, after selection US as country and bypass was not working, I was looking into the temp file that the program generated, it shows that it was trying to check for the AU firmware instead of the US firmware. Not sure why that happens, but it happens to me. I did use the fetch button, but same result.

Hey, I would like to second that. I am in the US as well. After the horror stories about FW 3.0 and above causing the Blu-Ray player in older launch PS3 to fail (I have one, 60GB CECH-A01), I have never updated the FW since 2.80 came out.

I would REALLY love to keep 2.80 on my system and bypass the update so I can still play games online without taking a risk that my BD Drive will fail.

I am getting the same result as weii, with "au" being in the temp.txt file instead of "us" (see my attached temp.txt). Also notice in the attached file, that although the ImageVersion is correct (00009171), the SystemSoftwareVersion is showing 3.01.. (?) Shouldn't that be 3.10, which is the latest version? That's how it is in the "official" ps3-updatelist.txt from Sony.

I also cannot see some of the text next to checkboxes on the form, but no big deal; I am not sure if I need to use them. A screenshot of that is attached if you want to see it.

Can someone help us "US" users figure out how to bypass FW 3.10 using this program? Can we do it somehow using the "Replace Files" tab? I have been using the PS3.ProxyServer.GUI until it stopped working for me sometime after 3.01 was released... see my other posts in a different thread about that if you are interested.

Interesting to see the user agent in that post - might have to update my PS3 Update Checker app to use this instead of the one that the PS3 brower uses!.

I've got a build running here which encorporates the SHOP firmwares too, if anyone is specifically interested in that post a message on my profile page. (It's kinda part way through a major overhaul)

How did you get to see the request and response? :P

And yea, for FW below 2.43, the ps3-update.txt is different to above 2.50. As I dont have a ps3 on FW 2.43 or below, nor do I have a copy of a ps3-update.txt update file for 2.43 or below, I cannot fix this.

I will have a look around the net today, and see if I can find something.
