    if it were that easy, there probably wouldn't be a reason to keep a clean NAND.

    You don't qualify for repair, repair is for when there is something broken like damaged screen, dust under the screen. Since you ran cfw stuff on it, they would not even bother to service it.

    Factory resetting will not wipe everything. They will still see the hacked stuff in history afaik. Shouldnt have modded if you wanted to play online....

    hmm...didn't think that's what he meant. lol customer service and the repair people don't have any control over people getting banned. I know it at least says something like that with sony on their website. if you're banned, there's nothing you can do. since customer service has nothing to do with it, calling them up is a waste of time. I'm sure they've gotten yelled at several times in the past for this same reason -- a banning.
