February 20, 2009 // 8:41 pm - Here is a video of PS3 Proxy Server (alternate PS3Proxy) being used with PS3 Firmware 2.60.

Note: It is believed that once you download the PSN PKG file you can see it in the XMB and still (as always) have to install it.

The video does not show that, most likely because the installation would fail generating an error as it has since around the 2.4 PS3 Firmware Update. This is likely why the bubble is still around it when it's shown in the PS3 XMB.

However, the video does show the downloading of a file via PS Proxy. Feel free to comment below if anyone experiments with this further!

I'm just throwing this out there, but assuming that when you game share, you need the other person's account to remain on your ps3 to use the files you shared, maybe the reason the installation doesn't work is the game runs a sort of check to see if the user who downloaded the game is on the system.

is there any way to run the ps3 activity through a packet editor?

Probably, there could be a some kind of activation step after downloading demo file from PSN.

I can't confirm that but as I remember PS3 Proxy does not support https traffic which could be used to download some kind of activation file after downloading the demo file.

Okai, I therefore believe there should be at the console that the demo has already been installed before. This would be a good track to find a solution.. if there are new for this error that prevented me.

Old news. You can only install same game as you download. Instaling different game from demo you downloaded gives you an error.
