people think because some HB is signed that they can just upgrade to 3.56, total noobness.
'm just sitting here looking at posts and IRCs, laughing my ass-off, it's not a security update, but god knows what kind of spoofer $ony implemented in there.
hold on, so we dont HAVE to update to 3.56? i could still go ahead and install wannikos 3.55 firmware? ( sorry im kinda confused, i asked for help on another topic but got no reply, so been researching all day was getting ready to do it when this news hit)
well i'm still playing on 3.55 with the bypass till they figure something to fix up 3.56 hopfully with kmeaw =P
$ony can ban anyone, it's their network and we bought the PS3 not PSN... remember that guys, there's more to this than the obvious reasons, and maybe they're making so much money in online sales that they'd rather not risk loosing a chunk of their customers.
I updated a spare ps3 of mine and checked if service mode worked and it kind of does, you can get into service mode but you cant get out of it with any .self file.
Thanks for sharing your experience, i guess for now your spare is stuck in service mode. Let us know if you manage to get out of service mode.
that's dirty sony... still allow the lv2_diag.self #1 to run but blacklist the other getting people stuck in service mode... shame... shame... they knew one of the first things someone was gonna try is service mode.
