    I remember something about the folder structure of the ps3 or the external hard drive. Don't you have to change the name of some folders? Like the GAMES folder?

    And, "not for the game banning servers", what does that mean, that with this you can't play any game, or are some forbidden ones?

    sorry to bump this old thread, but i recently installed psnpatch and the plugin on 4.81.2 rebug and now the ps3 freezes 10-15 seconds after starting up. i can access recovery mode without freezing. i'd prefer not to restore the ps3 since i have a lot of data i'd like to keep, but if that's the only solution, i will.

    Don't use anything else, but the things required in my tutorial and you will be fine.

    i don't understand how that would help me in this situation. i followed the instructions, and now my ps3 freezes when i start it.

    edit: i ended up swapping it out for a bigger hard drive since i would've needed to format it anyway.

    Did you re-instll the PSNpatch plugin? I also got stuck in a freezing loop like you did when I first installed the plugin.

    The plugin sucks, the method in this thread is the mainly used method.

    I wouldn't use PSNPatch. It's one of the oldest spoofing methods, and it ALWAYS gets your ass banned after 3-4 weeks.

    I have never got banned, sometimes I mod sometimes I don't. It's been 2 years using this method.

    Yeah old lol, that explains why it is still being updated and is highly recommended over other things.

    PSNPatch was the biggest shit ive ever used. Always got banned after 3 weeks or so. Its an old method, because it was made in 2014. Sony knows it too good. SEN Enabler is way better and by the way if you mod online your PS3 deserves nothing more than to be burned down.

    it's unknown what exactly sony looks for when it comes to bannings. it seems to be more the games u play rather than being on cfw in general. some games try to write files to specific location or attempt to read certain folders which they shouldn't have access to. this is what Nintendo used to do with ap on the nds. it's a very simple method really, and it works, so take the same precautions u would with any backup.

    Yeah what @godreborn said, don't sync trophies, try not to mod, and don't play games while signed in when you don't need to be signed in. Have fun!

    Thanks! I just bought uncharted 3 and would like to try online gaming on it. There was a time I signed in on my psn and played some backup and I realized I shouldn't be doing that... so now I don't sign in my psn acct anymore. I'll try to follow the steps provided by the OP here. :)
