    Is formatting the ps3 from System settings the same as the format option on recovery?

    I hacked - no emails for me. Then again, maybe it's because I've not tried going online since hacking.

    I just connected online and downloaded the update on my PS3. I didn't get the email, and only used my PS3 twice when on CFW. Everything seems ok.

    I got the e-mail too. A tad confusing, as you can't currently go online with CFW. Are they saying, if you don't update your console and log on in x amount of days, you'll be banned?

    ofcourse you can go online with a cfw, but i would stay offline (deactivate network) if you want to keep playing your backups etc.

    Everybody with a PSN account is getting that email. Whether your console is hacked or not, you are getting the email.

    I got the email too. And the only time I ever did go online was when 3.41 was still the current firmware and I only went on for about 10 minutes.

    No need to be concerned if you got the email.

    Just stay offline and you will be ok. I never got online while I was on 3.41 JB when JB was first announced because I was not stupid and I will not do it and never will.

    It's not true at all. I and many others who I know never received one. It is only targeting those who have hacked their console.

    I find it funny that they sent me one saying I have unauthorized software on my ps3 and that I'll be banned if it is not removed despite the fact that I haven't turned my ps3 on in months

    Did you at any point run 3.41 jailbroken? It's looking like they've been silently collecting a list for months.

    I didn't... maybe that's why I never got an email? Then again, I've not used PSN since just after 3.41 came out anyway...

    Does anyone have a clue as to how long after you get the message you get banned?
