February 18, 2011 // 3:02 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.

what if you run it from a backup manager and choose the emulate disc in drive option?

i'm not sure, i noticed in Charles that if you run black ops from a backup manager it shows the disc id as NP0006- or something similar but if you run it from the disc it shows the disc id number: BLES1031 maybe we could modify the header in Charles to show the disc number?

hmmm who to go after?? devs who create the means (and possibly employ them) for end users to circumvent or end-users who employ the means and really have no idea how to circumvent?... In the end what companies have been saying since Nintendo surfaced will be the law of their virtual real state.

If it aint licensed by us don't run it and if you don't have a license from us don't attempt to develop on it... The internet only somewhat complicates this relationship because of software which have features that are dependent on the internet. I don't possibly see what harsher methods otherthan a ban on sony's network they could come up with LOL.

Unless they do something like microsoft which will effect some hardware features but i say they are a lot nicer than ms when it comes to dealing with hacked consoles...

we need to completely spoof the query with charles, i think including the passphrase and such i think that is the giveaway for 3.55

Hopefully they can produce a kengen for Console IDs, once legit consoles start getting banned Sony will have to unban Console IDs and come up with another plan.

lol we will never learn, all that will come from this is your entire account will be banned/blacklisted. just get another ps3 buy a ylod for cheap on ebay most likely its a bad power supply you can get cheap as well, (what i did) one ps3 homebrewed one untouched, i don't recommend continued circumvention it will just lead to more drastic measures by sony.

lol sony will probably go after the developer of charles next.
