PSN account creation (pre 3.50)
PSN account creation (pre 3.50) –
i have found someone to trade me a ps3 with a 3.41 firmware for my 3.50 firmware, so i could use the jailbreak. but that is not the point. the person that would exchange me his ps3, would like to have his saved games on my ps3, so he could keep playing without noticing any differences. but the problem is, his ps3 is on 3.41 firmware, and he never had a psn account, and for i to transfer his "copy-protected" saves, he NEEDS to have a psn account.
my question is, is there anyway that i can create a psn account on HIS 3.41 fw ps3, without having to update the system ? because when i try to create an account, it gives me the message that i have to update the system before trying to create an account…
any help would be appreciated, and thanks a lot until now !!
you won't be able to create an account without being on the latest firmware. but you can use "data transfer utility" under system settings to transfer the protected save files.
it wont work :// i tried that, and the system tells me "users without a psn account, wont have protected stuff like saves, etc, transfered"

anyway, it wont let you play online, neither download patches etc, but you can still transfer protected information to another playstation 3 (with any firmware) using an ethernet cable...
this was usefull to me, cuz as i said, i found someone who would trade me his ps3 3.41Fw, to my 3.50fw, BUT, he would only do that if he could at least keep his saves (and he didnt had a psn account linked to his "offline" user)
