a few questions about being banned –
i never got a email about being banned and i am able to log in to psn on my pc am i banned? also is there any way to clear everything from my ps3 to show no cfw was played by any chance?
also if i clear my history with whatever program and then update anyone know if i will still get the ban hammer?
i know there is a search i just wanted to know if the safest way to go legit is to clear my history delete all cfw then update

yes, if you want to have the best chance of not getting the hammer thats the way to go. remember though that nothing is certain.
well all i ever did was make a seperate psn account and used that to go online and never logged onto my other user name again. would my best bet be not to go onto that user until i go ofw?
any account you logged into on your ps3 while it was hacked will probably be associated with it, so if your other account hasnt been signed into during cfw use, use that one after you go legit, or start a new one. as to the account you used while on cfw, go ahead and use it as much as you like until you go legit.
Im kinda thinking of going legit again, but worried about getting banned.
All Ive ever used is the usb dongle JB, but I dont know how trustworthy deleting your PS3 "usage history" is.
There's no guarantee you will or won't be banned. But the fact they emailed everyone claiming to give everyone a second chance tells me if it was cfw they were looking at not the dongles, which is why some never got anything from Sony.

Think of it as pulling the plug on a alarm clock, you will need to reconfigure everything and re-enable wma playback and all that crap you did when you first purchased the ps3.
It's the best way to go legit as it removes practically everything relating to the jailbreak. There hasn't been a banwave so no one knows if they will keep their word or just ban. Although I still have that email incase Sony decides to be stupid. I've updated a few days after 3.56. I'm enjoying it right now, bought a few psone classics. PSN may never get to the level xbox LIVE, but it really isn't all that bad.
If you have friends on psn and most of them are IRL friends then the answer should be obvious, if you don't care about psn at all or it's content, then homebrew is where you want to be.
I will keep that in mind, when time comes for a final decision, though, i never got a mail from Sony about this, and I haven't gone online after I got the dongle.
