How To Connect Jailbroken PlayStation 3 To PSN With Custom Firmware 3.55

After a recent attempt made from Sony to block the DNS method for playstation consoles running custom firmware 3.55, psx-scene.com has still come up with yet another method to get these jailbroken PlayStation 3`s back again to the online Play Station Network.

Here is a step by step guide on how to make it work for you :

Step 1 :

Setup dnsmasq in order to resolve your regions update server accordingly, (fuk01.ps3.update.playstation.net in my case) and use auth.np.ac.playstation.net to your computer. You can add them under the /etc/hosts section and leave the rest of the settings under dnsmasq as default.

Step 2 :

Download Charles Web Debugging Proxy Application and setup reverse proxies for these two addresses on port 80 and port 443. Also add auth.np.ac.playstation.net to the list of locations in the SSL tab of Proxy Settings so that you are able to see the data that you are changing.

Step 3 :

Next, run the application and under Tools>Map Local, map the /update/ps3/list/uk/ps3-updatelist.txt on your regions server to a local copy.

Step 4 :

Download the asbestOS installer on your Play Station 3 and enable R/W access to /dev/flash.

Step 5 :

Rename charles-proxy-ssl-proxying-certificate.crt to xx.cer (where xx is an already exisiting certificate)and then use your preferred method to replace the one in your flash.

Step 6 :

Set your PS3 DNS to the one you had setup.

Step 7 :

Go to your Charles application and set a breakpoint over there on all the https:// POST Requests.

Step 8 :

Now make an attempt to connect to the Play Station Network.

Step 9 :

On seeing the request in Charles, edit any instance of 3.55 that you come across in the headers to 3.56 and then click on Execute.

Step 10 :

If it does not work in a single go, please try giving it multiple shots as it may take you a couple of tries to get signed in finally.

The following steps mentioned above are of a brief nature and so i would highly recommend to go through the detailed instructions over here which are available with complete screenshots.

Disclaimer Note : This article has been solely written for educational and testing purposes only. GoRumors does not take any responsibility for anything going wrong in the procedure nor has it developed ,endorsed or promoted the use of this hack. Please use this method at your own risk as you might end up getting banned on the Play Station Network.

iOS 4.2.1 Untethered Jailbreak In The Making?

With Jailbreakme being prevented by Apple through a software update, the Dev Team is working hard to bring out an untethered jailbreak not only for iOS 4.2.1, but also for all the future iDevices like iPad 2 and the iPhone 5. An untethered jailbreak would help users to hack into iDevices without the need of a PC.

While the iPhone Dev team is working on a RedsnOw untethered jailbreak, the Chronic Dev team is working on a GreenpoisOn jailbreak. A teaser that showed the successful working of the GreenpoisOn hack on an iPad and iPhone 4 was also recently posted. The best part about these untethered hacks is the easy to use interface that is going to be offered to the users.

With the legalization of these jailbreaks, Apple is finding it tough to keep a lid on these hacks.

GreenPois0n iOS 4.2.1 Untethered Jailbreak For iPhone To Release Soon

Of late, one of the common frustrations among iPhone users looking to jailbreak their iDevices is that the available jailbreak solutions seem to be perennially stuck in work-in-progress mode. This is pretty much expected given that the good folks at iPhone Dev team and Chronic Dev team are contributing to the solution in their spare time and are not exactly paid for this.

We have not heard about any significant development from the iPhone Dev team over the past week. However, in a recent announcement, Chronic Dev Team has revealed that their Greenpois0n untethered jailbreak solution for iOS 4.2.1 will soon be on its way.

While no estimate time of arrival was given, the release should be pretty exciting given that the earlier Greenpois0n was supposed to be a tethered jailbreak. Also, the developers have noted that unlike RedSn0w, the upcoming Greenpois0n release will not require users to save SHSH blobs from iOS 4.2.1 beta 3. That would make the process all the more simpler.

Here is a video released by the Chronic Dev team that showcases the jailbreak software in action.
