Can someone please just give me a quick, short answer?
Can someone please just give me a quick, short answer? –
I've been skimming these forums the last few days reading about the CFW and all this jazz, but it seems people on here love to disagree with each other so topics are quickly sidetracked and people throw technical mumbo jumbo everywhere. I've got literally 2 quick questions that require yes/no answers so can someone please help me out.
First off, when you play online with CFW what is it exactly that's getting people banned? Is it in the firmware itself or is it in the source of the game? In short.. Can I go online with CFW playing my original game from the disc, or would I be banned?
Secondly, Wankinkoko V2, the reason I went with kmeaw to begin with was because I have a CECHG04, aka 256mb, aka paperweight. He mentioned in the release notes of V2 that this model had been tested, but has anybody from here tried it and been successful? I tried to read through the release post and after about 12 pages of bickering it became too much for me. Also, what's the general view, is it worth changing kmeaw to kokoV2? Some people said definitely, some people said don't bother.
online issue: no one knows for sure at this moment.
kmeaw vs waninkoko: kmeaw for me, all games if ripped from an original disc will run with no problems at all, only pirated games will give you trouble. You also dont need the lv2 pkg at all when using the latest BM's

The only people banned so far have been playing COD Black Ops, and at least most of them were cheating.
You can try going online but at the moment you will need to use either a custom DNS setting or a proxy like Logan5's proxy. These are likely to stop working within a couple of days.
As for the FW... someone else will have to tell you, I haven't used either of them.
not sure whether there's anything that Waninkoko v2 does over Kmeaw.
Kmeaw stability is great for me, multiman runs any game i backup perfectly fine.
about the banning: so far, it hasn't really been "jailbreakers" who have been banned, but "cheaters"
i do think Sony is rather gonna go the passive aggressive way of trying to keep you out of PSN by OFW upgrades / requirements and fixes of any kinds of workarounds. I don't see why they would ban you just for having a CFW installed. That would cause far too much turmoil. Their goal is to keep you out of PSN by trying to limit it entirely to people on the most recent OFW
Ahh thanks guys, I almost made a ridiculous mistake earlier when I went to go from CFW 3.55 to OFW 3.55 just to play online, completely forgot about the mandatory updates Sony forces upon us... I swear this market is just no good for me.
They rarely make real 2-player games anymore and people like me who have small download limits because the government is too busy trying to promote multi-culturism that they don't even care about the regional people and upgrading our exchanges to REAL broadband. Seriously.. 3G modems suck.
Are Sony worried about people cutting into their profit margin or what is it? So what if I don't want to spend $100 on a game just to have it scratch and become unplayable and then go and spend another $100 to replace it. LET ME BACK UP MY DAMN GAMES! I think they should be focusing their attention on the game traders, reselling games 2, 3, 4 times in their lifetime. THEY'RE the real criminals here. But I digress..
I think I'll just stick with kmeaw until a CFW 3.56 or 3.60 whatever comes next comes along. Thank you all.
