    Heh, all these companies getting exploits and then hoarding them for themselves, and by the time they're ready to be sent out Sony's already patched the hole. XD

    The DNS method still works (set 67.202.81.137 as the primary/secondary DNS in your PS3's network settings) for now. Not that it matters as I still have a 3.15 fat ps3 for hacking purposes (I got a slim to use for psn as soon as I heard that an update that removed otheros was coming out).

    Some people have, and while you can still enter (and leave) service mode the downgrade itself does not work. It looks like they will need a new .pup file.

    no "hidden" secrets .. *sigh*

    could really go for some:

    Grouping friends in the XMB
    instantly opening msgs when i receive them
    faster XMB

    ... is that too much to ask for Sony huh .. i dnt want cross game chat or whatever the shit that is anyway.

    Screw you, Sony. I was going to update to play some PSN, since I also knew the downgrader was out ther, but now I won't anymore. I don't want to lose the ability to use homebrew :/

    I thought it was disabled long ago?

    It means that if you have firmware 3.50 you can get on psn without having to update to 3.55. While it was disabled long ago for earlier firmware versions, it works fine if you are on 5.50. Note that I have not tried using the psn store yet, I just used it so I could watch Netflix without having to wait for the update to finish.

    They disabled the proxy method in April 2010.
    And the DNS method more recently (October I think).

    Few hours ago, I read another forum stating that the method doesn't work anymore (with fw3.41). But maybe the proxy doesn't work and DNS is.
    Or maybe the PSN allows only 3.50+, they should have a method to detect the correct firmware now (since spoofing doesn't work anymore).
    I'll try the Proxy method myself this evening (I'm on 3.41).

    Let us know if it works, Cyan. I'm on 3.41 myself, and I would love some PSN [​IMG]

    yes if you can get PSN to work on 3.41 please eleborate, i just bought my ps3 and thought i would love it as much as my wii/psp/nds/gc once unsigned code and homebrew was enabled, but sony is now starting to make me regret my decision of purchasing the ps3

    Gambia, The
    I can confirm the DNS method works perfectly on 3.50. Just bought my PS3 with 3.50 and I guess I shouldn't update too hasty.
