    Don't take it the wrong way but, this thread isn't for you.

    It's for people who gotten banned from PSN.
    I'm trying to gather as much info as possible on Sony's ban behaviour. i.e. how you got banned.

    If you want to be completely safe, deactivate your PS3 and never connect it to the web.

    No, Sony seems to ban the console + offending account.
    Any other account on the system gets spared.

    I have had the same system online regularly for years with no issue. I use Habib starbuck cobra cfw or the closest vanilla cfw in between waits for habib. I used webman, now sman. Games both in folder and iso format. Never modded eboots or any game file for that matter. I always use psnpatch before connecting any internet to the ps3, previously used psninja. I simple hit triangle to wipe history and disable syscalls.

    If i were to play online today i would.
    Power on.
    Load game in sman.
    Run psnpatch and hit triangle.
    Go to setting and enable internet.
    Play.
    When finished i go to settings and turn off the internet and switch the unit off ready for next time.

    Rebug is a great cfw but i had a second console banned many years ago on rebug which is odd considering how stringent i am. I since decided to stay away from cfws that fiddle with unnecessary files such as splash screens, icons, colours etc.

    I play all the cods just fine as well which others mention they can not?

    Going online with syscalls enabled, and or modded game files is a big risk as well running any hombrew while online. If logs aren't wiped before connecting to psn they have you logged server side running unofficial software and could any time down the track add you to a ban wave.

    Anyway good job and I hope you narrow it down more for yourself and the community.

    oh, yeah, black ops 2's eboot scans for specific folders on the hdd. that's a game to steer clear from. gta v I believe also has hdd checks. don't play either online.

    Judging from all the bans listed here its safe to say just by connecting to psn with cfw results a ban then again ever since Sony's psn got hacked by cfw users back in 2010 they have been pretty serious in not taking any chances
    Best to keep it offline and just enjoy the hacked system anonymously

    When did this go into effect? I logged into black ops 2 a few months ago with a modified eboot from way back when and I just checked and both accounts are aok. So they just scan for mods now and Insta ban?

    @DinohScene I was thinking of making a new post for this, but since this is a sticky Im just gonna put it here
    This is also for everyone else that posted in here.
    I am interested to see if anyone wiped their game history, faked it, and then made it read only with psninja?? Also if you used psnpatch to disable syscall and if so, what version did you use? along with an updated list that OP has provided?

    CFW/ODDE/OFW:
    Online multiplayer:
    Connected to PSN:
    Homebrew whilst on PSN:
    Cheating whilst on PSN:
    PSNinja Game History Wiped:
    PSNPatch Syscall Disabled:
    Loading backups via Multiman/Webman on a separate profile:
    Loading backups via Multiman/Webman on your main PSN profile:
    If applicable, reason of ban:
    Console ban:
    Account ban:

    What I always did for years was keep my internet disabled, keep auto login off, and made a separate account and told my friends to add that.
    I would boot up, load multiman while having a disc in my ps3. Load the game I want to play and then load up psninja and make it read and write, wipe it, fake it, then make it read only again. Load PSNPatch and disable syscalls. Then finally turn internet on and log in. That worked ever since I had CFW and I never once got banned from psn.

    I did cheat online a lot though. Like a lot a lot. Always toggled on anti ban though :P

    More info would certainly be welcomed, however not a lot of people know that PSNPatch wipes boot history or it disabling Syscalls.

    That could very well be why people are getting banned then.... PSNinja was greatly used in the earlier days of cfw.. Atleast it was for me... Same with PSNPatch. Without game history wiped, faked, and made read only, Sony could see every single homebrew app everyone used. Going online with syscalls active is also a 100% ban risk. I know I tried to tell a few people to use it, but I feel like it was just looked over like it wasnt really needed.

    A solid good tutorial on PSN patch with a fuck ton of explaination of various functions would be welcomed.
    There's barely any info on what everything does that's a bit noob friendly aside from "use it and press that button"

    ****Disabled auto-signed into PSN.*****

    Load game via webman and played offline. I never played online at all.

    If I needed to go on PSN I would run PSN Patch launch a legit game exit it and load it again. While in the legit game I would sign into PSN and download anything I needed to.

    Another thing that should be added is if people are using webman and/or cobra stuff. Ive heard that using that even with syscalls off can result in a ban because its "modified". Not sure how true this is, or if its true at all, but its worth asking as well.

    If you are careful you shouldnt get banned dude. I tbh should have just stayed on 4.55 Rogero that has been spoofed to 4.81... lol I dont want to downgrade because that will result in the hdd being wiped lol. Good old 3.55 downgrader.pup lol
