grabbed from another forum but it works fine this method allows you to register,use the playstation store,and get the gripshift game going without updating from 1.5

Well you got yourself a PS3 today and want to get a free blueray movie, right? There's only 1 catch you need to update your PS3 Firmware to the latest V1.60 before you can register yourself to the playstation network.

Now i have come to a solution after alot of trail & error. I can also confirm that this works.

So here we go!

1) What do you need

-ps3.proxy.gui
-ps3 proxy
-notepad

2) Actual installation

- Create a ps3-updatelist.txt and put this in exactly as you see it.

Now save this to an easy to remember location!

- go to my computer or somewhere with windows explorer browser and open the following file c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts in notepad.

- in notepad add the following to the end of your hosts file

save the file and exit

- go to the ps3.proxyserver.gui and go to proxy setting tab and for ip address enter the router ip of the computer that you are running the program with.

- in replace files tab, click add, 1 line with 2 columns appears. on the left side put in "http://fus01.ps3.update.playstation.net/update/ps3/list/us/ps3-updatelist.txt"

and on the right side click the little dot and select the location of the edited ps3-updatelist.txt on your hard drive

- go back to proxy setting and click the big start button.

- start ps3proxy.

- now go to your ps3 and go to internet connection settings. you do not need to mess with settings UNLESS you connect differently than an automatic router assigned ip. head towards proxy settings and select use.

- enter in the ip and port of the pc where ps3.proxyserver.gui & ps3 proxy are running on.

- test connection, if it works, register yourself on the playstation network and recieve the free blu-ray movie casino royal without updating!

ive also included the ps3 proxy gui and exe

well it mainly a precautionary measure to keep the 1.5 firmware ,paradox(who i now think are full of shite,but i wont be upgrading just yet just incase) who claim to have a loader and this fw is supposed to have holes in to allow hacks,which may well still exist in the 1.6fw but may also have been pached
