2w 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.

Pretty obvious solution here. Just start naming the homebrews after currently existing titles, Or titles of bad games. Such as we can take the game name / BLUS for the game FLOCK (worst game ever that nobody will play) and install a master manager under that name.
So while it looks like everyone is playing FLOCK, We will actually be using a multimanager for FTP's, Backups, and Emulators.
Sony disabling update by USB in the next patch:
There are a few options we can take if we end up accidentally getting hit with this.
For people who update and can no longer install from usb:
Either the firmware will need a pre-installed pkg manager with firmware update options, Or they will have to do a dnas redirect to their computer to check for an update.
For people who have not updated to the new firmware that disables...
