I want to softmod my PS3 so that I can run homebrew and play backed-up games. Is it safe to do this with current modding methods? Can I un-mod my PS3? Has anyone ever been banned from the PSN, denied certain privelages, or banned from games by using an unofficial copy (pirated for example) or for playing on a modded PS3?

Also, I'm on Version 4.10. Can this version be modded?

Thanks for any help!

No.

[long version]
Modding is safe in the fashion that knowing what you are doing you will most probably not break anything too bad, and if you do you knew the risks. Unmodding should be possible depending on your PS3. 4.10 I am unsure about, do a google or look around here on GBAtemp for longer then it took you to post this question. Pirated games & banning: happened. CFW'd consoles and banned: unsure, probably but AFAIK not so much a hype as with the xbox360.

Its worth noting that if you mod your ps3, you currently cant get on psn and you can't play most newer games as they require newer firmware.

You have to downgrade your PS3 to 3.55 to get CFW, and the only way to do this (atm) is through a flasher (like the E3 Flasher). When you do so, you pretty much give up the right to play any newer games that hasn't been patched (which is quite a lot). You also can't play any games online either.

Also, you will get banned if you try to use the PSN.

Stop spreading these rumours... I went straight from hacked ps3 to unhacked online and I did not get banned. Haven't heard that anyone has gotten banned in the wide world :P

    pssh - nope. 1, what I'm doing gets done from our bootable provisioning environment, and you can only interface with that via serial console - we don't accept ssh connections on the servers in that state, and 2, I don't even know if our bootable environment has pssh baked into it
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    3, I've never even heard of it before lol
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Anyway I can open serial console sessions to multiple devices at the same time, and broadcast my input to all of them (iTerm on Mac is the terminal emulator I'm using). It's just a matter of how many commands I'd have to run by hand, and how long they'd take otherwise lol
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I just assumed you were working via SSH. I know my way around that. If a server is only accessible locally it's waaay beyond saving from my end so I let the DC team work on that :tpi:
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    I *am* the DC team :P the remote arm of it, anyway
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    Trust me, I wish I could do everything I need to do via ssh. Working through these serial console servers suuuuuucks in comparison

  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    I love that there's a network filesystem that runs on top of ssh - sshfs
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    I use it in most of my home network for mounting network storage in various *nix VMs
  • Veho @ Veho:
    sshfs you say...
  • Veho @ Veho:
    I use SFTP but it doesn't have the bells and whistles.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Dumb dx11 and lutris
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    sshfs allows you to mount networked storage on a machine as a FUSE filesystem. It's sftp under the hood but has all of the interactivity and usability you'd expect of a locally mounted filesystem. Downside, it can slow down a little bit with massive directories, but I haven't personally run into that yet
  • Sicklyboy @ Sicklyboy:
    This perspective is all linux oriented fwiw. I believe there's an sshfs driver for Windows, but I haven't used it yet. and no idea for MacOS

    Ftp is life if not on wifi
  • wolffangalchemist @ wolffangalchemist:
    yeah ftp and occasionally samba at the house.
  • impeeza @ impeeza:
    By the way under Windows you can use Total Commander to access so many sources as drives, SFTP, FTP, WebDav, Cloud shares, etc.
