When you click auth, info should appear on the right click request and you should see your console id to copy it right click on auth and save request then open it and look for consoleid=0000000xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx00000000 000000000000000000000000
That's your console id to change it go to tools, rewrite and if you have it set up you should already see the stuff to edit the header so click on PS3 3.55 then you should see 2 boxes.
On the bottom box, click add, then where it says type make it body. make sure only request is selected. make the first value is your console id, example the first value would be consoleid=0000000123456789012345678901234500000000 000000000000000000000000
And the second on is the one you want it changed to and where it says "where" make sure request is only selected.
Example of the second value is consoleid=0000000987654321098765432109876500000000 000000000000000000000000
You can only change it to a valid console id, cannot be random or just left blank.
Apparently Sony bans the console ID and if you use charles and send a black console ID you can still sign in and since the console ID doesn't go to sony because you send a blank value they can't ban your number, also some people tried this that were banned from black ops and they were able to play again because thats how black ops had banned was by the console ID but I don't know if this works.. maybe someone that is already banned should try this and post their results.
I moved this to the PS3 hacks section now for discussion, if it amounts to anything (for example, if numerous credible people confirm it works, etc) then we can promote it to the main page as well. In any case, cheers for sharing this slifer1231 and +Rep.
it does work, but you need a valid console ID and you'll get banned again within an hour or two (leaving it blank doesn't work)
spoofing the console ID will get you round the ban but it won't stop them detecting the cfw or homebrew on the PS3 so it just gets banned again and another console ID bites the dust. Unless a method of hiding the homebrew/cfw comes along you'll just keep getting banned.

I'm sure a brute force checker wouldn't work. Sony are bound to have implemented a lockout for repeated failed logins from the same IP. It's security 101.
If it's a whitelist for the console ID's then there's no reason they'd have to be mathematically linked which means random ID's and no algorithm for generating keys.
If it's a blacklist then there would have to be an algorithm linking keys otherwise Sony wouldn't know what's a legit key and whats fake (we already know fake keys can be identified and denied at login).
But either way attempting to brute force keys for login is asking for trouble as it's breaking a number of laws and very easily traceable to the individual.
Yeah it's not exactly like you put the PS3 "behind 6 proxies" to try and login to PSN. My guess would be a whitelist, but given that Sony is prone to making somewhat questionable security decisions (root keys anyone?) it's possible they use a algorithm to generate their console IDs.
Either way, just like barry said, you are going to get the banhammer shortly after connecting since the CFW and homebrew are detectable no matter what "stealth" attempts the user has made.
