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

type=0&
serviceid=IV0001-xxxxxxxxx_00&
loginid=xxxxxxxxxxxx%40yahoo.com&
password=xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx&
first=true&
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 https://auth.np.ac.playstation.net

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.

After you sign into the PSN you can change your username and password, then load black ops and you can play on your hacked 15th prestige account with gold guns and everything. i made a video on youtube.

you just change your email and password with Charles after you signed into the PSN then boot black ops

All homebrew apps/CFW are poorly signed with the same stupid key. Read this: http://www.ps4news.com/forums/ps3-hacks-jailbreak/hermes-naima-ps3-npdrm-selfs-encryption-differs-116982.html#post354746

does this work on 3.56 with a clean hard drive(no cfw, homebrew, backups, etc)? the reason im asking is because I am banned from black ops, and I just want to get back online on that. I think it would work , but I need someone to confirm it first.

Legit users don't need to worry unless the code to generate a legit console ID is cracked. Look at the size of the console ID -- it's 25 digits long. That means there are 10 septillion possibilities. Even for a computer, it would take a very long time to brute force through every possible ID, or even just randomly stumble upon a valid one.

On top of that, you'd have to verify each ID against PSN. It wouldn't take Sony long to implement a strategy to counter that, assuming they don't already have such a strategy in place.

For example, if I was to write such a system (no Sony, I'm not asking for a job), I'd put a delay of 5 seconds before the system would respond to a login request. For a regular user, 5 seconds is hardly noticeable, however for someone brute forcing all possible IDs we're talking about 1,500,000,000,000,000,000 years. Even with every computer in the world working on that, it's going to take forever.

As secure as that probably is, I'd still take it a step further. Let's double the delay after each request. Let's say the first request gets a delay of 5 seconds. The second is doubled, making it 10 seconds. Then 20, 40, 80, 160, etc. At this rate, it takes over 5 minutes to check a measly 6 IDs. Nearly an hour and a half for 10 IDs.

And for the record, if the console IDs are truly random, then any given number is just as unlikely to be legit as the next. That means searching through all possible numbers in a random order does not make it any faster than just going 1 up each time.

I hope that helps put things in perspective for people.

And if you're looking to steal someone else's ID, please don't. Not only is it morally wrong, but you're now crossing a line and possibly facing serious consequences depending on your country's laws. At best, you screw over someone who paid an honest buck for his console.

If you could get the ID of a dev model ps3 it would probably let you get away with whatever you wanted. I'll call some friends at game companies and see what I can dig up.

Wasn't the point of being able to sign software to avoid all of this in the first place? Why can't we have stealth homebrew and CFW?
