    Hey everyone. I'm currently running Kmeaw's CFW on my PS3, and considering going back to OFW to be able to play online. My PS3 has NEVER been on PSN since I installed the custom firmware, so I've never gotten the "remove CFW" warning and I shouldn't be "flagged" in any way yet.

    My question is, if I remove CFW, would I be able to leave things like my emulators and MultiMan on my system to continue using? Or would this red flag me and get me banned from PSN? Has anyone attempted doing this?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    They have a whitelist of games that will work on the old signature. Anything else has to be on the new signature or it won't work. Due to the nature of home brew, that means all of it won't work.
