the codes do work, but require a input whenever firing up the system. just like a log in on a p.c. with dongles and mass information i know of and could not figure out how to permantely take the kiosk 3.56 out of demo mode. the downgrade method was not an option for obvious reason and acid cfw wouldn't touch it either.
i can do regular kiosk downgrading as i have dongles for ease of use, but i have tried everything and as all 3.56 , it is stuck there. the code does not fully unlock it as you can't go to psn. i was not trying to j.b. it but just unlock it. if someone figures this out please post it. thank you all for your help.
