Well I tried all the recent methods so far and this is the best. You don't need anything else but it running. Thanks to drizzt for the F*ckPSN method.
Here is my environment.
- PC Windows 7 32bit
- Slim model PS3 and Fat PS3 (both work)
- Kmeaw 3.55 Have also tested with GH 3.55, OFW 3.55, Waninkoko_CFW_v3.55_V2 and Wutanrza.
- The CA27.cer from Drizzt not from anywhere else.
- F*ckPSN v0.5
- Dev_Blind v1.1 or FreeFlash
- Open FTP 1.3
- Microsoft .NET Framework
Original CA24.cer and CA27.cer for those who did not back up their own.
Also added micr0shaft's modded version of F*uckPSN v0.5 original post here (****PSN v0.5 - Modded).
Ok, now here is the procedure I went through to set it all up.
- Install Dev_Blind.pkg and OpenPS3FTP.pkg on your PS3 from USB
- Launch Dev_Blind and make it mount the dev_flash as dev_blind (or if using FreeFlash launch it instead and mount dev_fflash.)
- Open OpenPS3FTP and connect to it using a PC (Filezilla)
- Connect via FTP to PS3 (using host=PS3 IP username=root , password=openbox port=21)
- Go to /dev_blind/data/cert or (/dev_fflash/data/cert if using FreeFlash)
- Rename CA27.cer to CA27.cer.bak
- Copy the CA27.cer file from your PC to /dev_blind/data/cert/CA27.cer and click yes overwrite it. Close FileZilla.
- Exit OpenBox and reboot PS3
- Start F*ckPSN v0.5 on your PC (Since I'm using Windows 7 I right clicked and ran as Admin, then Windows will ask you to allow it to access your network click Yes.)
- Got to your network connection settings on your PS3
- Set up you connection as you normally do until you get to DNS settings.
- Set the PS3's PRIMARY DNS server to your PC's IP address you'll be running F*ckPSN v0.5
- Leave the PS3's SECONDARY DNS blank (0.0.0.0)
- Do not use Proxy Server
- Now finish the settings as normal on your PS3 and test connection. (If you have followed these instructions all should be fine.
- Hello PSN!!

People using Windows 7 64bit may need to run ****PSN v0.4 with VMWare w/Window XP or Windows Virtual PC with out problems.
With this newest version I can now get access to PSN and also the Playstation Servers, that previously did not work with past methods. (eg. Warhawk, LBP2, etc.) I used all the other methods and could use PSN partially but not all game severs that i could test worked. Only severs that would work were EA Games, etc. not the Playstation ones. Also a side note that I am in Canada so US servers I connect to. And they are all original games and PSN content bought and paid for.
