February 18, 2011 // 4:02 pm - I found this over on NextGen Update (linked above) and it seems promising regarding unbanning PS3 consoles and also anti-ban methods for the PlayStation 3 Console ID and PSN Sign-In.

Here are the details from their site: ANTI BAN+maybe unban: YOU CAN COMPLETELY REMOVE YOUR CONSOLE ID AND SIGN IN.

To do this simply leave second value blank not tested on a banned ps3 yet but it should work+you can hide your console id which can prevent you from getting banned.

First do the PSN Bypass Method: In charles there is a request for a file called auth what it contains is your username, password and console id.

This is what the request file looks like:

x's are just me protecting my info

consoleid=0000000xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx00000000 000000000000000000000000

To get your console id have Charles running with the ssl and all that stuff

Sign in and on charles you will see two new files

Click on

Then /nav

And lastly auth

When you click auth, info should appear on the right click request and you should see your console id to copy it right click on auth and save request then open it and look for consoleid=0000000xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx00000000 000000000000000000000000

That's your console id to change it go to tools, rewrite and if you have it set up you should already see the stuff to edit the header so click on PS3 3.55 then you should see 2 boxes.

On the bottom box, click add, then where it says type make it body. make sure only request is selected. make the first value is your console id, example the first value would be consoleid=0000000123456789012345678901234500000000 000000000000000000000000

And the second on is the one you want it changed to and where it says "where" make sure request is only selected.

Example of the second value is consoleid=0000000987654321098765432109876500000000 000000000000000000000000

You can only change it to a valid console id, cannot be random or just left blank.

Apparently Sony bans the console ID and if you use charles and send a black console ID you can still sign in and since the console ID doesn't go to sony because you send a blank value they can't ban your number, also some people tried this that were banned from black ops and they were able to play again because thats how black ops had banned was by the console ID but I don't know if this works.. maybe someone that is already banned should try this and post their results.

I believe that the people getting the new TOS screen are the one who live in countries where the QRIOCITY service and/or other music/movie services ARE available.

I am on KMEAW CFW 3.55 since it came up + Multiman 1.16 and a lot of backup games and homebrews. I am still able to login PSN and play COD BO (never cheated and never will) using Ps3dns + Charles. YES I got the EMAIL but i'm still online.

I live in "Albania" Europe and I login to PSN with an Italian Account since my country is not included in PSN and I didn't get the new TOS screen.

spoofing the console ID will get you round the ban but it won't stop them detecting the cfw or homebrew on the PS3 so it just gets banned again and another console ID bites the dust. Unless a method of hiding the homebrew/cfw comes along you'll just keep getting banned.

any proof?

This might be off-topic but I got the warning message from Sony but I haven't been banned yet. But I also have two ps3's one on 3.41 and the other on 3.55 Kmeaw and the thing is I logged on my PSN account on the 3.41 using the dongle and the payload to spoof a retail to a Dev or test unit but that didn't last long. But since CFW 3.55 Kmeaw came out I installed that on my other unit. No ban on either unit yet.

I think if you use the dongle to jailbreak a 3.41 console and login to PSN they can detect the dongle and keep a log of it. I play on PSN on my CFW 3.55 console but I make sure to delete the pushlists and the boot_history.dat and replace it with a spoofed one. Maybe they ban you if you use the dongle on 3.41 and keep logging on PSN. So maybe they can only detect the dongle but not the CFW? If I get banned I will post again when i do.

yeah exactly, cheating has ruined the CoD series, Black Ops has the best chance to survive semi-okish but still it's there. the more and more these punks bypass PSN just to cheat is going to ruin it for all of us even faster.
