    @fkd released an Android app that does this easily and without taking hundreds MB from your phones storage and it works flawlessly. Here's the link to his resource page: PS3 Proxy Server for Android

    Introduction

    We'll be using a Linux Terminal emulator in order to run the PS3 Proxy code.
    Keep in mind that these emulators install a linux distro, so this could take up more than 500MB of your phone's memory.

    Credits
    Thanks to @mondul for his Proxy server code, which can be found here: https://github.com/mondul/PS3-Proxy
    Also huge thanks to @fkd for helping.
    Thanks to @KaoLHoO-DeCK for the tutorial video for Android 4.4.

    How to

    Click the spoiler that corresponds to your Android Version:

    1- Install Termux and Termux API from the PlayStore.

    2- Run the following lines (without quotation marks and say yes (y) to everything you get asked):
    "apt update"
    termux1.png
    "apt upgrade"
    termux2.png
    "apt install git"
    termux3.png
    "apt install golang"
    termux4.png

    3- Type "go version" to check if golang got instaled correctly
    termux5.png

    4- Now we'll download the server code:
    "go get github.com/mondul/PS3-Proxy" to import the server's source code and some other stuff
    termux6.png

    5- Now we'll copy the binary to our home directory so that we have quicker access to it:
    "cp go/bin/PS3-Proxy $HOME/PS3-Proxy"
    I f no errors popped up we can check if the binary got copied by using "ls", we should see a PS3-Proxy file.

    6- Now we run the binary:
    "./PS3-Proxy" after this we should see the IP address and the port of the server, and when the PS3 tries to contact the update list we get notified that the server blocked the connection right on the terminal.
    termux8.png
    After this we should be able to just start the server any time we want by just typing the command in the 6th step.

    1- Install GNURoot Debian from the PlayStore.

    2- Run the following lines (without quotation marks and say yes (y) to everything you get asked):

    "su"
    "cd"
    debian1.png
    "apt update"
    debian2.png
    "apt upgrade"
    debian3.png
    "apt install git"
    debian4.png
    "apt install golang"
    debian5.png

    3- Type "go version" to check if golang got instaled correctly
    debian6.png

    4- Now we'll need to set up the path that golang uses:
    "mkdir go"
    "export GOPATH=/root/go/"
    debian7.png

    5- Now we'll download the server code:
    "go get github.com/mondul/PS3-Proxy" to import the server's source code and some other stuff
    debian8.png

    6- Now we'll copy the binary to our root directory so that we have quicker access to it:
    "cp /root/go/bin/PS3-Proxy /root/PS3-Proxy"
    I f no errors popped up we can check if the binary got copied by using "ls", we should see a PS3-Proxy file.
    debian9.png

    7- Now we run the binary:
    "./PS3-Proxy" after this we should see the IP address and the port of the server, and when the PS3 tries to contact the update list we get notified that the server blocked the connection right on the terminal.
    debian10.png

    After this we should be able to just start the server any time we want by just typing the following commands:
    "su"
    "cd"
    "./PS3-Proxy"
    debian11.png

    Video (in Portuguese, but it's easy to follow anyways):


    Hope everyone finds this useful, if there's anything wrong in the tutorial or want to make a suggestion to improve the tutorial just tell me :)

    I tested this on android 8.1 and 9.0, so it should work without issue, that's why I summed up the first spoiler for Android 5.0 and higher. If anyone finds any issue due to their android version tell me and I'll take a look at it :)

    Edit: It should be working for all android versions higher than 5.0. Maybe some people on 9.0 find some restrictions due to new safety measures implemented by Google in 9.0

    In the OP there are two spoilers containing the information for your android version, in there you can find the links for the apps and their names

    You can't go online? Some brazilians on a Discord group I'm on, they can go online without problems, that I know of (unless your BR is something else).

    I have added your requested change, and recompiled. I will be updating my ps3 proxy apps (that run off this proxy also) to incorporate this change as well. https://mega.nz/#!GmxB3AYY!MWKcGYU4dobmAJUSWbGYtRxcHQsl5sM26kZxpnGM6mY

    Yes here in Brazil there are some people who bought ps3 from other regions, but there are also many people who bought the national version and can not connect with this proxy

    Updated OP: added link to @fkd's app PS3 Proxy Server for Android which works way better and taking less storage space

    I have the proxy server running on a Raspberry Pi 3 which is plugged into the PS3. Whenever the Ps3 is powered on the pi boots with it. Thanks @mondul .
