    apparently Sony blocked this permanently? My freind currently has a hacked ps3 using something called multiman or something and playing games off hard drive. Can he re-hack his ps3 to play on PSN? Or is this impossible.

    It was enabled for a while but the guys who made the work around knew it was only going to be a limited time deal until Sony patched it up. I imagine Sonys recent update might have put this whole psn thing back to square one

    I forgot
    You can't play on PSN. In order to do so, you have to be on the latest firmware. As far as I know, there is currently no way to bypass this.

    it's a news from 2011, it was possible for few months thanks to another team (Re-Bug) finding the password to access PSN.
    Sony patched it few days ago, so it's not possible anymore.

    You have these choices:
    - use a Hacked PS3, but don't access PSN
    - update to official firmware to get PSN, but loose Hacked PS3 (and it's hard to go back to hacked state if you update, as you need a hardware mod)
    - Wait for another hack update to grant PSN access.

    No it doesn't. Sony changed the PassPhrase.
