    It tells you what to do. Either un-mod your PS3, or they'll ban your PSN account.

    Make the choice.

    Sounds like a spam email to me. If it was sony this part would be different:

    Instead of coming from some innovyx.net, it would more likely come from sony.com if it were real...

    Or you could buy a separate PS3, though that's probably what they want you to do.

    Well that sucks, but simply clean up your console if you want to use PSN and re-install a CFW if you finished with PSN and want to use homebrew or whatever you can do with a CFW.

    Edit: Oh I forgot that a CFW for 3.56 is not availabe yet. Either upgrade to 3.56 and use PSN or stay at a lower firmware and use a CFW.

    It's because of the IPB errors.

    Oh boy. That's why I am not going on PSN and never will.. I don't. I do not care about PSN.. EVER. I am happy playing offline all the time. I don't understand people like you and see whats happening ? Now you are in trouble.. Be careful.

    As everyone else has said, you have two options:

    1) Update your PS3 to 3.56. You may or may not get banned, Sony is under no obligation to let you continue since they already know your PS3 is hacked.

    2) Don't update your PS3 and definitely get banned. If you've been hacking your console, you should have long since prepared for this scenario already.

    To PSN accounts that have been used on hacked consoles.
