Yeeeey ! Sony Strikes again! Time for us to do something back !... oh wait... we are BANNED -.-'... Hmm... glad i did a full reset on my PS3's here... and just in time i think.
For people that are banned. The MAC address + Serial are the 2 things it checks in its Database (as i heard). If you are running CFW... well you can change the MAC address. (spoofing). Problem here is that it starts with this "small" ban... i think we might say all the PS3's with CFW installed on them are going to be banned pretty soon.
I don't know if i am safe... I deleted every trace of a backup manager or copied game... (took HDD out and low-formated and overwrote all with 1 values... you know the drill.) Then i put it back in and did not patch it anymore... so 3.56 here... got 1 console left thats stuck on 3.41... could try that one for hacking. But still as said before: Wana play online? Go buy the game!
