Personally I haven’t tried this yet, but it seems promising… This comes from an anonymous fellow who is reporting success on connecting to PSN using PS3 Custom Firmware 3.55 by Kmeaw. So install that first and then follow these steps.

The following assumes you’re technically inclined and/or very resourceful, i.e. you know how to use Google. You’ll likely need to reference Google when it comes to generating/signing a certificate and creating a CA (certification authority). That said lets get started; here we’re using a combination of two tactics:

1. DNS server trick: Set Primary DNS to 67.202.81.137 under Network Settings
2. Simple SSL proxy that basically modifies the headers for outgoing packets to auth.np.ac.playstation.net’s to change “PS3 03.55″ to “PS3 03.56″ — this makes PSN believe the PS3 is using the proper firmware version

Got it? Now here is how we accomplish tactic #2:

1. Replacing a SSL cert in the CFW (in /dev_flash/data/cert) with your own CA SSL certificate
2. Creating an SSL certificate for “auth.np.ac.playstation.net” signed with your CA certificate
3. Run a DNS server on your machine that resolves auth.np.ac.playstation.net to your PC’s internal IP
4. Create a Java SSL proxy (basically PS3 <-> PC <-> PSN). The PC claims (to the PS3) that it is “auth.np.ac.playstation.net” and is successfully accepted because a CA signed the SSL certificate
5. Replace the headers sent PS3 -> PSN to specify “PS3 03.56″






Now I did copy paste this from HERE, but I wanted to share with everyone. Video proof below.

This is not old news. Thanks. It was patched, and if you follow everything you'll be able to connect to PSN.

Edit: Funny how L4nel posted the same exact thing after me, but funny how that is not old news. If you're going to be helping out a lot on the PS3 section please at least read up, do research, and stay on top of the PS3 scene.
