Why not rushing Sony's White/Blacklist... someone writes a prog, that generate real ps3console id's...we go all online with this...the id's get banned...clean/legit players begin to call Sony, thier id's have been banned and in 3 weeks, they have to shutdown or change thier hole system... just an idea
...i know Sony will lose... it's just a matter of time.
any new developments in gettin psn back on CFW 3.55 ?? I have no intention of going to 3.56 , i only play my own games but I enjoy the homebrew and emulators so I would rather buy another console over updating my firmware and letting fony control what I paid and was taxed for already !! I've heard rumors of keeping things under wraps with things..
I was wanting to know has sony started banning anyone yet or were the e-mails just a scare tactic if so we need to start a thread and if you were banned post exactly what you did when you were banned then we can start looking at what they look for and hopefully spoof it because i heard that some people have been banned already and some haven't.
i've heard some were playing backups and were banned and some that were playing them and havent been banned but we need to find out if they really are banning right now or if they are just trying to scare us into updating.
I would also like to add to this - if you were banned did you update trophies/clear pushlist&boot_history.dat/add valid entries to games you have in boot_history.dat/what specific games were you playing/did you mod-cheat in any games/were you connected to the net in any way or form/etc
It is kind of confusing that some were apparently banned, need more input on it since everyone seems to have a different reason. We just need a list of 'ban requirements', and if we can pinpoint the things that will set off the flags. Maybe write it into some kind of template like:
Current firmware: Boot_history.dat cleared? [y/n] Pushlist cleared? [y/n] Manager used: Other homebrew used: Changed param.sfo gameid's to fake id (some games using geo cfw required this method)? [y/n] Net enabled? [y/n] Games played: Game files modded? [y/n] Cheated in game? [y/n] Used proxy? [y/n] Used dns method? [y/n] Used fckPSN? [y/n] Used other method to get on psn (please state): Synced trophies? [y/n] Current PSN status: [account banned/console banned/works fine]
I found a thread over at nextgenupdate were people are doing what we are talking about heres is the link: nextgenupdate.com/forums/playstation-3-exploits-hacks/322501-sony-email-ngus-collected-information-so-we-know-whos-getting-detected.html

CFW: (what CFW are you using)
Last Time Online (PSN) : (self-explantory)
PS3 Model: (slim or Phat)
