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.

its not really that you didn't read it right nor am i refuting it, it's just very poorly worded (probably not english as a first language from the original poster)

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

And yes I did test it too.

Seemed i did not read the post right...

But seems that there is something else. IF someone manages to get a console ID from someone else... the COMBINATION of the ID and the USER is never the same ... so normal people do not have to worry i guess?

That saying sucks... this is actually the choice you make when you are banned or not. We people that pay for everything should not be the victim of your mistakes...

Stupid thing: WHY does sony even allow consoles with NO id on PSN

No I don't believe a brute force would work ether for the same reasons. And anyone that thinks of PS3 cloning to get back on if they get banned, please forget it, its not ever going to work.

I don't believe Sony will ban IPs, but think its more likely to be Mac address lock outs, maybe with some hardware information for more accuracy in the banning process, like motherboard version and S/n, the IBM call's S/n, user account details, plus hdd0 file allocation table, BDVD info, the list is long.

One thing is for shore, is they will change a zero to a one on your PS3, and stop loads of other things for ya, in the process when blocking that PS3 for life. There's an old saying " If I cant have you, then no one can"

yeah but realisticly they are never going to guess a legit key and if the keys are mathematically linked and a generator surfaces, if Sony were to ban any legit consoles there'd be a massive backlash.

And if you share your key thinking it won't get banned, well i'd just consider that idiot tax.

Yeah it's not exactly like you put the PS3 "behind 6 proxies" to try and login to PSN. My guess would be a whitelist, but given that Sony is prone to making somewhat questionable security decisions (root keys anyone?) it's possible they use a algorithm to generate their console IDs.

Either way, just like barry said, you are going to get the banhammer shortly after connecting since the CFW and homebrew are detectable no matter what "stealth" attempts the user has made.
