8h ago - Following up on his previous releases, today PlayStation 3 homebrew developer KW (via kokotonix) has updated to PSN Patch v1.06 for PS3 Custom Firmware, which allows users to temporarily disable their CFW, spoof their Console ID and more as detailed below.
14h ago - Following Sony's PS3 bans, today the first PlayStation 4 banning has been reported with the user's PS4 console receiving PSN error code E-82E0001D.
When the user was about to play Battlefield 4 Online this weekend, he received the following error code message: [E-82E0001D]
Apparently, the user was previously banned on the PS3 because of modding, meaning he most likely used the same PSN account.
To quote (via community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-4-Support/PS4-got-banned-from-PSN-E-82E0001D/m-p/42393327#M25588): VastmanisH: PS4 got banned from psn on day 1, i played BF 4 last night, and when i came online , it showed me this. I need explanation now, so mad right now. Sony why you do dissss , Unban me please!
A Laggy Christmas: I got no mail, I was banned on ps3 too, so maybe because of that, but it was 8 months ago and because of modding.
I called and they were no help, they just said that this ban is permanent and because of a TOS violation.

To quote: How To Use a Proxy Server with Your PS4 to Sniff PSN Traffic SKFU Pr0xy
The following guide covers the very basics of how to install and run a proxy server on your local computer to use with your PS4. This allows you to study how the PS4 communicates with Sony’s servers, for various reasons.
A proxy lets you block some of the traffic (which has been useful in the past to let users access Netflix on their PS3 even when they didn’t have PSN access), or replace some of the traffic with connections to your own server (useful for being able to connect to the PSN on a lower firmware), or simply because you’d like to know what type of information your console sends to Sony’s servers.
Charles proxy is probably the most popular proxy around here, but it is commercial software. Thankfully, scene dev SKFU has been creating and updating his own proxy server for windows, and this is the tool I will be showing today.
