Hi guys, I'm currently using the latest Rebug CFW, and I was wondering how to minimise the risk of getting a PSN ban. What are my options?


It's a used console, and I've yet to go online with it. And no, I'm not using (or will use) cheats.

Cheers.

Thanks for the reply. Is there any way to further reduce this risk?

Its still being tested fully but there will never be a guaranteed risk free solution.
Interesting. What's the general risk consensus currently on getting PSN bans?
If I theoretically get banned, is this a console ban, or an account ban?
Can it be remedied by making a new account?

what are the common steps to do or not do to connect to PSN/play online?
What can be done safely, and what should never be done?
Is there a list of these things?


I guess using SEN Enabler before launching a game?
do you need to disconnect from PSN before loading homebrew/loaders? (probably)
etc.


What should you never do?
boot console with ethernet connected?
play GTAV online? or even offline but with PSN connected is risky?
launch game loader homebrew while having PSN account connected?
etc.

what can be done without issue?
Playing from disc?
launching bought PSN games?

the best method is to just clear History files and CFW syscalls before logging in and/or running your game. Again there is no guarantee but so far so "safe" Also just don't hack games because the ones banned are the CoD players using mods/hacks "in the gameplay." Also i am no longer on rebug because so many descrepancies. Rebug, RIP. IMO, the latest Habib 4.66 is made out of the OFW from ground up so it is pretty hard to get caught out using CFW. Let me give you a background story of how i got banned a few months back; my own family/relative snitched on me because got jealous that i got platinum with our account for the games "that i play." It is pretty childish but yes Sony does also ban console IDs for this too. Other than that, also just don't use the same PSN user name you use on the interwebs. That is how cautious you need to be. If you want to be extra cautious, basically IP changes, and yadda yadda...hope you get my drift but that's just overkill lol.

First, go with a vanilla cfw unless you need and use the features of the others. Vanilla being as close to stock as possible.

Second, only install homebrew such as backupmanagesr, psnpatch, etc that are stealth versions. This means they reside in an official ps3 hdd directory that a old game or official product used.

Third, never launch any homebrew or have any non stealth installed when going near the internet.

Fourth, after loading a game with your stealth manager (or delete it after loading game to xmb) delete any homebrew that isn't stealth like showtime for eg and run psnpatch or equivalent to both delete history and disable cfw.

Fifth, never connect with a lower firmware than used before.

Sixth, connect to the internet, log in and run the game from xmb which was previously loaded by the manager.

You will get console banned not just account which is reversible if you can buy/retrieve another set of id's.

This may be a necro reply but okay
Since you've listed the precautions, I'll list step by step for PSNPatch
1) Get PSNPatch, it disables CFW syscalls and all that (It renders CFW unusable including homebrews and backup managers)
2) Do not be on PSN at the moment (You shouldn't be when you're running homebrew)
3) Run backups manager and mount the game you want to play online
4) Run PSNPatch and disable CFW
5) Connect to Internet
6) Run the game from XMB
7) Sign into PSN while in-game (You can do this before running game from XMB)

Doing this disables it but only after you mounted the game.
To reset CFW, reboot the PS3

I'm thinking to get a soft modded PS3, I don't want to play online and go the PS store.
But I only want to update my trophy list once in a year.
You could do the above precautions if you want to, it's a must if you do online gaming though
If you're only going to sync trophies annually, you can just do it since you're on there for such a short span of time, not very likely of ban but risk is still there.
Might be somewhat suspicious if a crapton of game suddenly appear though (Imagine a person purchasing 40 games in a year)

    Does it cap out at a certain tb
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    no, i can switch to which drive I want to access with a button on it, I have 4 2tb and 1 4tb, all dif formats, so will work good for me
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So you could have a petabyte with it
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    You made me go back and look, it says 32tb max per drive. It will be nice when setting up game systems, I can carry one enclosure around, instead of grabbing the right Ext hdd for, say Xbox360 games
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    So about 128tb still more than you'd ever need

    I thought about just buying a new ext hdd 12tb like you shown, then format multiple partitions on it, but I'm lazy.

    It was only $75 so still cheaper than a new drive. And less hassle. It would take forever to copy everything over also.

    I like retroarch, once you set it up completely, it's cool. Artwork, summary, and screen shots for all your games is a nice touch. It's basically a organizer for all your emulators/games.
