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 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
and here is the format they are using:
CFW: (what CFW are you using)
Last Time Online (PSN) : (self-explantory)
PS3 Model: (slim or Phat)
Online Method: (Charles or fckpsn)
PSN Email: yes or no (the email syaing that they have deteced unauthroized software on your ps3)
Banned: yes or no (self explantory)
they have only one reported ban as of today 2-22-11 and its on geohots firmware.
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 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.
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..
