updating without problems? –
hey everybody i have a question. im missing to play online and i would run the new update gladly to get in psn. but i have read there there could be registry entries or similiar which could be detected by sony and i could become banned. i dont want to risk that and I wanted to inquire first of all whether i can update without any consequences.
ill be thankful for every answer
This is just my opinion. Due to the research I have done, it seems to me that any one who is capable of truthfully answering your question won't, because they at this time don't want sony to know what they know about the ps3. However, logically I would think that sony would have no reason to ban your console, even if you had previously run backups. Obviously sony is in buisness to make money, so if you update to 3.50 you should be okay. I have been around the psp scene for a while now and I can say that sony has not banned a psp yet. If anything they should be happy that you updated. Again this is just my opinion so if you do update please let us know how it went.

From what I have read so far, I wouldn't update before cleaning the internal hdd. There are definitely files on the ps3 that are sent over to fony when you log in psn. Including a file storing your recently played games/backups.
I would try to get rid of these files first and as nobody knows which files are sent/checked by fony, you should format your hdd. I would take it out the ps3, format it with a pc and insert it back in the ps3 which would result in a fresh install of your firmware and a clean log.
Still, this not 100%. There could be information stored outside the hdd to detect a booting in jb-mode. Part of the firmware is stored outside the hdd, so maybe... just speculating
Update firmware, zero hard drive in pc, and do system full restore after updating, should clean your ps3 as much as you possibly can.
Updating your firmware and doing the system restore from that should clean alot of files, and zero out hard drive to make sure nothing there.
There is nothing more you can do.
Everybody knows the risk when they JB so if you no longer wish to use JB, do a complete system format or restore whatever before you update the system to the latest firmware.
By doing the above, you minimise the risk of any info being passed to PSN.
Please remember though, there could be other checks in the system which could get you banned.
This is the risk you take for JB'ing your PS3, if you end up getting banned, tough, it's your own fault. Go buy another PS3 and use that one for online.
Your only other option for online play is via xlink kai or whatever its called.
This is only compatible with certain games though, you will have to look into it and see if the games you play online will work.
If they do, problem solved.
You need to prepare the hard drive BEFORE updating as logs will be passed as soon as you connect to PSN for the update.
