    PS3 Proxy Server for Android

    (Since this doesn't have a downloads counter because of what I say bellow, I'll just put it here out of someone's curiosity and I'll update it when I remember -->

    Downloads: 675 + 686 (19-05-2019 - DD/MM/YYYY // The first number was the downloads number before I deleted the v1.0 release on GitHub for testing... - I didn't know the counter would be reseted, or probably I wouldn't have deleted it, I just deleted to put the source code in a better way than the way it was)

    Latest app version: 2.0


    5. Diese App läuft auf einer beliebigen FIRMWARE-Version!!!
    6. Это приложение работает на любой версии программного обеспечения!!!

    You could even use it on OFW 3.55 and it would still work (in theory)! No need to not update to 4.84 or 4.85 or whatever version! (unless Sºny finally fixes this issue, but then not even on lower versions the app will work) You can update with no problems!!! The app will still work! It doesn't work only in 4.82 or 4.83 or 4.8X or 4.XX. It's universal! The program inside the app puts the version required by PSN being 0.00, so any version above that one will work! You can update with no problems, don't worry!


    Hi everyone.

    So I'm releasing my first Android app and it is a proxy server to allow the PS3 to go online on older firmwares (system versions) and that blocks the system updates too (if you try to update, it won't be able to download the update file). It's very easy to use and has auto start and auto save features. You can change the port of the server too. But you can't change the IP of the server. If, for any reason, someone needs to change the IP, just tell me here and I'll try to implement that. It's not hard to enable the option, but to check if the server is really working, that's the worst part (at least for a begginer like me - before making the app a week ago, I had never really touched in Android Studio, few on Java and nothing about Object Oriented Programming...).

    The minimum known working version is 4.2 (Jelly Bean) - tested by @blckbear_ - and the maximum is 9.0 (Pie) - the last one, with Android Studio. Without Android studio, the newest known working version is 8.1 (Oreo) - tested by @blckbear_ (the only Android version I have is 4.4.2 (KitKat)).

    Btw, if the IP says "localhost", that's because you need to start the app with the Internet already connected, because you're not connected to an external network, so it uses the phone's internal network (or something like that, I don't really understand this network parts).

    And in case you noticed, the icon it's PS3 Proxy Server GUI's icon with the android logo on it, just to be different and to mean it's the Android version.

    It has 6 languages: Portuguese, English, Spanish (first one is the one I know best, since I'm PT-PT), French, German and Russian (these 3 I don't know, so the translations are as good as Google Translate). Spanish was improved by @blckbear_.

    Hope you like it!


    This app only works on Android 4.0.3 or newer (I tried to lower as much as I could)!

    So, if you need the server to work with Android 4.0 and older (being the minimum, Android 2.2, so lower than 2.2 there is no known way), please follow this tutorial, which was made by the same person who helped in this app:

    After seeing a comment (thanks to @diego18sn PSX), is now in the program the following line: '"br": { "BR", "8F", "br" },'.


    - @blckbear_ (PSX-Place) - for helping and giving ideas (so huge credits for him);

    - @mondul (GitHub/PSX-Place) - for making the program which is behind the app (so amazing credits for him or the app wouldn't be possible, at least so easily).

    Original program used in the app (modified in the app) can be found on GitHub:

    Bugs and ideas:

    If anyone would like another feature here in the app or if a bug happened (possible, because I'm a begginer), tell me here and I'll try to put/fix it!

    Cheers and good gaming! (please buy the games if you can, the developers deserve it)

    PS: I don't need this app, I just decided to try to do it because the other way takes TOO MUCH space to run a 3KB program and some people might not have enough space... So I'll not be using it and seeing if there are any bugs on it, so if there are, tell me please. Anyways, if someone needs the server on 4.0 or older, you'll have to use the other way anyways (unless, as I said, it's older than 2.2, for some weird reason, then there's no known way to have the server working).

    Notification in KitKat (4.4) and in Pie (9.0):

    - v1.0 --> (please don't use this one, as it doesn't have an update notifier - nor the new things, but the notifier is the most important or you'll miss possible updates);
    --> v2.0 -->

    I had to put this page's link on the app, so I published this without files. I didn't know I wouldn't be able to put files after not putting in the creation part, so the link is directly to the release on GitHub.

    PS: You won't find this app on PlayStore, since I need to pay 25$ to put it there... So out of question, at least for now. When/if I put it there, I'll say here (might take time...... - much).
