May 28, 2010 // 9:55 pm - Update #2: PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v2.07 is available HERE with the changelog, followed shortly by PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v2.18 which includes more fixes.

Update: PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v1.92 is now available HERE to download, which contains some fixes as detailed, followed shortly by v1.97 HERE with more changes and a demonstration video below!

I didn't program most of PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v1.7 and only take credit for merging 3r1c's Proxy Server and MyDownloader to create an application which automatically intercepts the downloads without the hassle of copying the URL from the log into a download manager and then setting up a file redirect.

Download: PSN Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) v1.7

NOTE: My line only downloads at upto 175 Kilobytes, and usually without using this application, the PS3 only reaches around 30 - 40 Kilobytes.

Features:
- Built in Proxy Server
- Automatic Interception of PSN Downloads
- Segmented File Download's
- Pause and Resume File Transfers
- Download files while playing PS3 Games

Credits:
Mr. Labigalini - MyDownloader (SOURCE)
3r1c - Proxy Server (SOURCE)
Develio13 - Mashing the Source

Hope you enjoy, and watch your PSN Downloads fly...

Q: What was the purpose in Mashing the source code?

A:
I wanted an application that could automatically download files from the PSN without copying and pasting the url from the log into a download manager, and finally selecting a file to replace a given url.

Q: How do i use this application?

A:
1. Make sure .NET framework 3.5 or greater is installed.
2. Start Internal IP.bat
3. Write down your IP Address
4. Start your Playstation Console
5. Goto Network Settings and select Internet Connection Settings
6. Proceed with Custom Settings until Proxy Server
7. Choose Use and enter your IP Address, and port = 27
8. Save your changes by completing the wizard
9. Start the PSN DM.exe (NOT Proxy.exe)

Issues and Solutions:

Q: PS3 Downloads not showing in the GUI?

A:
1. Close the application
2. Check for proxy.exe in processes with Windows Task Manager (End Process - If Any)
3. Make sure the path.txt file is in the executable path
4. Check destination folder in the path.txt exists
5. Confirm your proxy settings on the console

Q: When downloading from PSN it says "Please Wait" until error occurs?

A:
1. Once it says "Please Wait" just press Circle and wait until download manager has finished.
2. Download the file from the PSN Again this will take the file from the PC Cache folder instead.

so will this get my ps3 3.15 online, or why does it say succesful pkg installation on 3.30 or lower does that mean i can install demos from my pc?

It won't get your Playstation 3 Online without the latest firmware, but Full / Demo Games can be downloaded to the PC (Which seems to download faster than PS3) and then transfer via the proxy to PS3 which installs without any issues (3.30)...

Released 2.18: http://www.ps4news.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=20515

Fixed:
>> Game Patches now detected by the application (Was thought to have been fixed in 1.87 but still didn't work due to a typing error - lol )

It's been a long day for me developing this application and i don't expect I shall be releasing anymore updates unless any major bugs occur (or new content appears which could be detected by the Download Manager (Booster / Proxy) )...

Thank you,
and enjoy the faster downloads from the PSN...

Thank you, for your questions... and i thought i would provide some answers.

Q: Is there an installation issue on PS3
A: It works on any firmware, and no issues yet.

Q: What is the purpose
1. Using a proxy usually speeds up downloads
2. Unlike 3r1c's proxy this automatically redirects downloads
3. Ability to play on the console and downloads won't pause
And many more...

Q: Can use it to download full games without paying
A: Yes, but i don't take responsibility for your actions.

Q: Does this work in the USA
A: Currently only supports the UK Store.

And I've released a new version with some bug fixes.

Fixed:

>> Prevented multiple Instances of same download (1.74)
>> Game Patches wouldn't download (1.87)
>> Fixed Initiate Process which caused PS3 not to download from the PC (1.87)
>> Minor changes in the operation of the code, to enhance performance. (1.87)
>> MP4 File Ready extension has been corrected (1.92)
>> The Game Patch fix from 1.87 didn't work for most game updates (1.92)

Know Issues (Unable to be fixed)
>> Some PSN content which is paid for cannot be paused (Ends with Error)
