    I would like to know whether it's "safe" to go online (PSN) if ReactPSN or similar has been used to install rap/rif/edat files. I know that signing in with a CFW always comes with some risk (I have used PSNPatch with its plugin on Rebug in REBUG mode and didn't get banned), but I just want to know if anyone has been "insta-banned" by having fake licence data or if it increases the ban risk in any way.

    Currently, I'm restoring my HDD to remove any sign of ReactPSN and its fake activations. I've also restored my atrac and xRegistry.sys files.

    No, it is never "safe" to go online at all. I never used to go online with CFW. Too risk. That's why I avoid to go online with CFW for about 6 years! I am not stupid. And I dont care about online either.

    If you want to use to go online.. Buy other used PS3. :)

    I know that it's never completely safe to go online with a CFW. That wasn't my question :P

    Right but I did forgot to mention ReactPSN which I used it alot and loved it. Yeah, it is not a good idea to used ReactPSN with online. Why ? Easy, it is still illegal so they will ban you no matter what. :( I read it somewhere in the past. Sorry about that. :)

    I mean, If you take the right steps to lower your chances of being banned, then you should be good. If you signed into the reactpsn profile with your account, thats why you got banned. I have my account as the first profile, and then reactpsn as the second profile. I also would recommend not using homebrew online, thats a given.... Using psninja to delete all homebrew usage from your ps3 and then proceed to fake it. Disabling sys calls in psn patch also is a very good idea. Im not sure if sony changed how they detect cfw, but back then my ps3 was never banned with using these methods.

    What were you doing when you got banned?
    I'm not planning on using ReactPSN-activated games online. When I'm online, I'm only going to use the Store, other PSN apps and mounted discs.
    So as long as I only use my own profile (instead of the renamed aa one) and don't play any games activated with ReactPSN I should be fine?
    By the way, I have used PSNPatch with its plugin while in REBUG mode and I didn't get banned. I even played a mounted game online.

    Mounting games from multiman and then disabling sys calls will just make it look like you have that certain game inserted in the disc tray. They cant tell the difference tbh. Ive use reactpsn activated games while online. 1 example is GTA V. I played that so much while online. Mod menus and all back then. No bans. I only made it look like I was on a OFW console. I made sure I cleared the ps3's play history, wiped and faked it, and then made it read only so they didnt see things that I had ran or will run ever. Like I said, not sure if they added more security, or if they just dont care no a days, but I was fine all that time on a spoofed console.
