PSIDPatch 1.0 Arrives, Change Your PS ID for PlayStation Network


Sponsored Links
196w ago - Today stoker25 has [Register or Login to view links] PSIDPatch 1.0 which allows users to change their PS ID's for PlayStation Network, however, PSGroove notes that you must change them to a valid PSN ID versus a random Console ID as follows:

Download: PSIDPatch 1.0 with Source Code

"Changing your PSID to a fake one would protect your console from being permanently banned. However, reports are coming in that using a made up Console ID does not allow you on PSN. This probably means you'd need to swap your ID with another legitimate one."

To quote: Saw Mathiuelh talking about swapping PSIDs on his twitter, as soon as I saw him talking about extracting one from an LV2 dump I knew it would be possible to patch

PSID is your PlayStation's unique identifier to Sony, this program will patch the loaded PSID in memory to one of your choice. This won't permanently patch your PSID, but should let you fool PSN. Best way to try this is for somebody with a banned PS3 to try changing it and going online.

Made and tested on a 3.41 PS3... if your using a different version and patching doesn't work properly please contact me and we'll work out a fix.

Features:

• Shows you current PSID
• Patch PSID from dev_usb/psid.txt
• Choose USB to load from
• (should add) Save PSID to dev_usb/orig_psid.txt

This uses the peek and poke syscalls in order to patch your PSID. Please make sure your using a payload which uses them (PL3 dev for example)

Usage:

Create a text file called psid.txt on root of your USB
Put 32 hex characters inside (e.g. 1234567890ABCDEFFEDCBA0987654321)
Install package
Run PSIDPatch
Select USB with Up/Down
Press X to patch.

Technical Stuff:

PSID starts at 0x800000000044A18C in memory (3.41), it is 16 bytes long.

Thanks
Mathieulh/RichDevX - bragging about PSID stuff on twitter, if it was a private convo I never would of started this
user - Fixing CFWLoad code so no SCE confidential stuff is included, thanks man

Edit: While I haven't personally tested this online, facanferff has said that changing their PSID to a random one and going on PSN with a banned console doesn't work. I'm assuming that PSN operates in a whitelist way, only allowing PS3s with PSIDs inside the Authorised database online or something. They could even use other parts of the PS3 for identification, such as BD-ROM serial or MAC address.

And use the pc software to sync trophy and stuff. PSN is for the 'muggles'.

What PC Software? I thought the proxies were not working anymore?

From the quotes below i'm assuming that we have to use other's psnid (such as from the official ps forum ) instead of creating a new one as a dummy. is this right?

and this atm doesn't help much as the Ban is towards something else either the MAC address as stated above them being able to ban the Console ID since the PSN ID is derived from our console ID.
I am not a lawyer but this sounds similarly like identity theft. In other words this is a neat way of turning every innocent jailbreaker into a criminal. Oh boy... watch out for the Big Brother.

IMHO if we want to play online just go to xlink kai and build a strong community there and stay away from psn. And use the pc software to sync trophy and stuff. PSN is for the 'muggles'.

Simple html/javascript page. just copy paste into a .htm or .html file and open it in a browser. copy paste code in the text file and done


Not that great but 2 mins of boredom and maybe someone can use it.
If you think somebody else can use it spread it around don't want credit any moron with a tiny bit of javascript knowledge can write it. Enjoy

So are the bans linked to the PSID? or the MAC address?

Any thoughts...
