To get your console id have Charles running with the ssl and all that stuff
Sign in and on charles you will see two new files
Click on https://auth.np.ac.playstation.net
And lastly auth
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've only gotten the console ID from a CFW not OFW. There are a few ways to change your console ID. The easiest now is with PS3ITA Manager as when you load it up to load your backup game it automatically changes your console ID to whatever you choose.
So somehow get the console ID from that broken console, input it into PS3ITA Manager and enjoy the games online.
There are tutorials here which tell you how to get the console ID, I'm just not sure where or how. When I need to do it I find a tutorial and get it that way.
I get stuck on what will or will not work on the CFW Im running Rebug 4.41. I'm not sure what can and cant be done.
I bought a semi broken PS3 off a friend for 30$. Its optic Drive doesn't work & the hard drive is small its a 125g slim. Its on OFW and he has a few games from PSN on it. What I want to do is take the PS3 console ID off of the broken PS3 and put it on my CFW PS3 to "un-ban" my console.
Somehow at some point my console ID got changed to straight 00000000000 so I figure however that was done I should be able to add in my new busted PS3 console ID in. If I have to drop to 4.30 or 4.21 that I figure should just be a PUP update away, but am I left with no choice but to drop down to 3.55 with a downgraded? (I went from 3.55kmeu or something like that to 4.30 Rogero and then up to 4.41 Rebug, Ive not been on 4.21 ever.
If I do have to drop to 3.55 is there not a way to get a new console ID of its own through a 3.55 hack that would not require I use the console ID off my new used PS3?
