Questions about data backup, activation, and trophies –
My PS3 is still on 3.15 and is not hacked..... yet. (Im waiting for the CFW to mature, and if its possible on the PS3, to have a recovery mode like the PSP/DS/Wii have).
Its quite obvious nobody will bother to hack OtherOS back into the CFW since there is little point when you can launch Linux through GameOS without any of the OtherOS restrictions, so I guess this means I need to reformat to get those 10 gigs back. I HAVE still been playing my PS3 offline since then though.
Problem is, I have a few questions about this:
1. For all the games and DLC I purchased from PSN, will I need to re-activate them after I restore the HDD backup I make before the format? Since its not guaranteed I will be able to connect to PSN with the CFW.
2. Will I lose any trophies I have earned but haven't synced yet? Do those not get saved with the HDD backup?
3. What happens if I decide not to upgrade or reformat yet and play a game that reads you trophies from a previous game like Uncharted 2? Will it be able to see all the trophies I have earned, or only the ones I have synced?
