I've been using the peerblock solution along with charles proxy/dns server to still get on PSN.
What I do is block all the playstation IPS, I'll attach the list I've made using back tracing at the bottom of this post.
Then I try to connect to psn, using my computer as a proxy with charles and a dns app just like we all know how to do.
It obviously wont work because peerblock will block 1 single IP, if you allow that IP you can sign onto PSN but peerblock will block the auth, and the remaining servers that would usually grab your pushlists,etc as well as news and such.
I've been able to get on psn update my trophies and use the store with this method by only allowing the IPS I MUST use and I will be on PSN with no news ticker or adds and still have functionality.
This is no PROMISE you won't get banned and I'm not certain I will not either but this is my idea and in my opinion the best route to go if you still want psn functionality.
I haven't tried playing any games online yet with this but I would assume you just simply allow the servers you need.
Granted, allowing these servers may be dangerous and get you banned but from my experience Sony uses a dif server for almost everything so the server you need to play a game won't be the same that will collect your pushlists.
With that being said I still recommend using logjam and before using psn, log off psn when running any custom app, run your app, run logjam, then connect.
I have yet to receive a letter using this and while looking over the Charles logs it appears most all psn connection attempts are blocked
Here is the link to the lists:
Multiupload.com - upload your files to multiple file hosting sites!
This is in my opinion the most comprehensive IP range list for Sony I've seen anywhere I've spent an hour or so backtracing and finding every single address sony uses to put it together.
It blocks some WIDE ranges but I wanted to prepare for when Sony starts using different servers within ranges they own.
I would also suggest using these with peerblock if you're going to do the method I have done and just ALLOW the few IPs you NEED to get psn to work.
I-BlockList | TBG - General Corporate Ranges
I-BlockList | Bluetack - level1
I-BlockList | Bluetack - level2
I-BlockList | TBG - Business ISPs
Using these other lists will obviously effect your internet experience as it will block MANY more IP ranges. I would still use them to be safe and just once peerblock blocks an IP you need right click it and select allow for 15 mins or an hour...Or allow permanently and just delete it after use
If people need a more comprehensive explanation I will put one up, but this is pretty simple stuff and I would assume most of you know how to use peerblock.
This may be a dumb question but does your ps3 still "phone home" when you have never signed up for a psn account and dont even have one setup on your machine?
Does just having the internet connection on mean the ps3 will "phone home"?
Are game updates safe to do on CFW now?
Any help is appreciated...
Yes it phones home whenever there is any type of internet connection on the ps3.

Game updates are probably safe but sony can still ping your console.
Sony sends auth requests to the ps3 even if it isn't connected to PSN so it's all at your own risk.

Ooh really? I thought that was how home invasions started. horrible analogy and the dude just wants FTP access.

Or you could, you know, unplug the ethernet cable connecting your cable modem to your router. It's not like you're using the FTP server all the time.
