Why? If, like me, You have been keeping off the internet so your PS3 is not blacklisted by sony. But down the road I realized i needed a psn account tied to my ps3 to play most pirated psn titles. We know once you connect to the net the ps3 sends a bunch of infos about your console so they know everything you have been running. So all the methods to connect to the psn actually involve running mean homebrews. cat and mouse. 1. Install OFW 3.55(from recovery) and restore factory defaults. The only way you can erase from your ps3 traces of your illegal behaviours. 2. Install CFW naima. md5.A3BED5E37E33440EC276AC98A6C2C6AB 3. run fuckpsn 0.5 on your PC 4. Setup your internet primary dns is your pc ip and secondary is your router. 5. connect to psn. you can even create a new account, But you wont be able to actually connect to psn just tie your psn. 6. Backup your ps3. You never know when that backup can be useful. 7. Recommended by me: Block playstation.net in your router settings and your PS3 wont be able to communicate with sony. You can then reset internet settings to automatic and stop using fuckpsn. and return to your evil ways... Just tell me if this stop working . A big Hello to people from Sony!
