Let me start off by saying I am not a Troll.
Back story, I am on 3.55Kmeaw, and played Online (PSN) with Need for Speed:Most Wanted and I attempted to reach the servers for BlackOps II, but was not successful. As a result a week later I was greeted with a Error on my PS3 indicating I was Banned. I also received a Email from Sony stating that Pirated Software was found on my system and as a result I was Permanently Banned from SEN / PSN.
I then started my journey on Many PS3 Hacking/Modding forums to reach out for help or advise/guidance to get around the Ban.
All roads led me to 2 Apps: Chaos Air Bringer (MAC Changer) and PSIDPatch (ConsoleID Changer)
I set off to find these 2 Apps, I originally downloaded PSIDPatch1.0 and it didn't work for me. It kept giving me a error when booted: 80029519
I later found a more current version 1.6. This one did boot and showed all my current info (PSID and Console ID)
I downloaeded Chaos Air Bringer and booted it, nothing happened and returned to the XMB with no changes made.
The Readme indicated to be on 3.55OtherOS++
I didn't want to chance bricking by changing firmwares, so I found Rebugs Toolbox App and installed it. I used the toolbox to Enable Manager Access in LV1. This app needs to work in LV1, so thats why nothing was happening when I original booted it. As soon as I enabled manager access and booted the app, it wrote my MAC, I saved it and altered only 2 digits from it towards the end of the string. I then used the app to change my MAC, rebooted and then checked it, YES the MAC was changed, attempted to access PSN, no luck. I tried a brand new account I created that same day after the ban. So changing only the MAC does not work, I tried many different MACs with the same result.
I went back to PSIDPatch1.6 and booted it, I changed the PSID and ConsoleID with a Random one and then attempted to sign in, I received a new error that I never seen before "You have been signed out of the playstation network" I figured it had to do with changing the PSID So I went back and left the PSID as original and only changed the ConsoleID to a random one. I then attempted to sign in again and it gave me another error, "You cannot sign in using another user's sign-in ID (email address)" I then looked up that error and on another forum they said to fix it, you need to delete you PS3 USER account and create a NEW one. I did. Once I created a NEW USER account in the PS3 console I then checked the PSN sign-in and to my surprise it let me sign in!
I only did it that ONE time and did not want to try on there too long, because I did not want to get reflagged, since Im still on 3.55Kmeaw, my next step is to update to RogeroCFW4.30, and use PSN, I am sure it will work.
Just to be clear, this all worked using random numbers, I do have a spare PS3 that I could've and wanted to clone, but since using random numbers worked for me, I felt no need to clone it just yet
I did notice that PSIDPatch is not permanent and needs to be re-run every time you boot the ps3, does anyone one know a permanent patch to change the ConsoleID?
