50w ago - Following up on my guide, the way I see it Sony will soon patch my console unban method, in my opinion it will be possible to work around the patch, I however won't release it publicly but below I give you PS_Unban v0.1 for 3.55 and v0.1.2 for 4.21 Firmware.
PS Unban is a tool to unban your PS3 on both 4.21 and 3.55 firmwares (different pkg's) (the 4.21 should work on both but meh), no console ID needed.
If it gets fixed i'll patch it a few times.
Install either "PS_Unban v0.1(4.21).pkg" (UP0001-NOBAN0000_00-0000000000000000.pkg) OR "PS_Unban v0.1(3.55).pkg" on your PS3.
Update: PS_Unban v0.1.2 is now released HERE and is out of BETA so grab that version instead.

Yeah, I doubt they will bother patching it before 2013... after all, they didn't fix the previous one that soon and with the holidays here I can't see it happening sooner.
I don't use PSN myself, but I imagine if someone with a banned PS3 uses this app to unban it then they would just create a new PSN account tied to their newly unbanned console. So although being able to unban PSN accounts would definitely be cool, it may be overkill since it only takes a few minutes to create a new one anyway eh?
