This tutorial will be simple as long as you decide to keep it simple, okay? Getting banned on a PS3 CFW has been very rare for me. It's all because of the tutorial I am about to give you. Not doing one of these steps could impact your ban factor. Part of the tutorial is for DEX and the other is for CEX so if you don't know which one you are then you are CEX. This tutorial is for PSN only. Requirements>------ PS3 CFW Backup Manager (If you play backup games) Rebug Toolbox (If you are on a DEX console) PSN account (Without this it's useless) PSNPatch PSNinja Steps>------ CEX 1. Disable PS3 internet connection. 2. If you use backup games then load the backup game first. 3. Open PSNPatch 4. Either hold Triangle or X it doesn't matter. (I usually choose Triangle) 5. It should then exit the application and the PS3 should beep once. 6. Open PSNinja and select options 1, 2, 3, and 5 then exit. 7. Now you can sign in to PSN. 8. Enable PS3 internet connection. DEX 1. Disable PS3 internet connection. 2. If you use backup games then load the backup game first. 3. Open Rebug Toolbox, check your system information to double check if you are DEX. (It will say DEX or CEX, if it says both something is wrong with the way you flashed.) 4. Go over to Utilities then go all the way down to, "Change Active PS3ID", it should say "No". 5. Click on it then select, "Use EID5: 84 (CEX)". Then let it do it's thing and exit afterwards. 6. Open PSNPatch 7. Either hold Triangle or X it doesn't matter. (I usually choose Triangle) 8. It should then exit the application and the PS3 should beep once. 9. Open PSNinja and select options 1, 2, 3, and 5 then exit. 10. Now you can sign in to PSN. 11. Enable PS3 internet connection. Extra Tips>------ 1. If you like to clear you're history after you are done playing online you should go to some games and play them for a few minutes so that Sony doesn't see you online for 4 hours, but playing nothing. That could be suspicious for them. 2. Don't be an idiot. This is simple, modding is an easy way out of PSN. I don't mod which is the reason I have a long standing CID. 3. Don't share CID numbers. If Sony can see two CID numbers online at the same time it can get suspicious. Conclusion>------ You can now go online to PSN on a DEX or CEX. Now keep in mind this tutorial is only for PSN and not for the game banning servers. I will be making a tutorial for how to get online in a game no ban. Hope this helps! WARNING: A BAN IS NOT MY RESPONSIBILITY! ONLY YOU'RE RESPONSIBILITY! Edited: Added some more steps to ensure no ban. 9/11/2016.
