3.55 jb –
How do you guys think sony will ban 3.55 jb from psn.
Also if people are flashing lvl2 kernal is it possible that sony will release a patch that will scann for modded lvl 2 kernal and refuse to update
there are numbers of topic asking the same things u asked
why do people keep asking the same questions over and over and over and over and over again
The most logical assumption would be that Sony would implement numerous checks to determine if your using a legitimate firmware or legitimate software. Backup managers were changed to delete push logs, as well as display a fake title ID while playing a game, but there is bound to be a bunch more checks just on the game you playing. If any of these checks fail, the console is probably flagged, and further investigation is done. Even if a backup manager isn't used, it's easy enough for Sony to check eboots or other game files to see if the mount point was changed. The eboot shows a mount point of the hard drive instead of the blu-ray, so the console is again flagged. Even before the Psgroove and PSJailbreak, I would imagine there were already checks in place like this, not only for checking authenticity, but also for cheating. The majority of checks they have can probably be patched to show that everything is good, but how many consoles will get flagged? Patch one flag, discover another, on and on.
And that is just on the game aspect on things. There are probably already additional checks that scan memory and hard drives for oddities. If not, they will be added. From following the developments in the IRC channels, it seems they already patches in to make sure you're not hooking into memory or using system calls of anytime. As for refusing an update, I would find it very hard to believe that Sony would eliminate the ability to update from a custom firmware back to official. If you leave a way for people to come back to the light side, you're bound to get people to do so.
Everything in my post is pure speculation. Honestly, there are most likely things we cannot even imagine implemented to check the integrity of the system. When your hacking, its almost impossible to dot all the I's and cross all the T's, there will also be something that can be traced to you using unauthorized software. The better question is what will Sony do to all those who are caught. Are they going to flag consoles over a long period of time, than do a mass suspension or banning? If they wanted too, they could have a check upon sign into PSN, and if one of those checks fail, you're console is instantly banned. Unlikely, but possible. It's been shown on this forum that the console calls home upon boot, so even if you never touch PSN, they most likely already have evidence of so called "tampering".
Another question is whether we can do anything to fight back those banning. Can we spoof whatever unique identification the ps3 uses? Maybe, but I would imagine they have a whitelist of consoles, or would implement one, so you'd have to take the unique ID of a non-banned console to access PSN. I don't own a 360, but I recall reading something similar to that on JTAG systems.
The best advice to take is, if you're using a console with modified firmware, you are at a very high risk of getting banned. Over time the risk will get lower, but that's common sense. It's one of the reason many of us own two consoles, but that's not a practical solution. I ended up buying a second ps3 with a faulty blu-ray lens, and I use that for homebrew purposes. But than you have to find a way to backup your games onto that console. it's going to very messy over the next few months, if you're concerned about your console, keep it off the internet. If you want to go back to official firmware, completely wipe the hard drive than install the firmware. There will always be a risk, if not, a whole lot more people would be in this game.
