I've been running the JB using a different HDD than my original one, and intend on switching back to my original, never used with JB HDD and updating to 3.50 as I got a hold of a YLOD PS3 that can be somewhat fixed with a heatgun. Is there still a large chance that I can get my current (non-YLOD) PS3 banned?
I'm hoping someone can answer this with the answer I want to hear
does that mean, i just need to start the ps3 in jb mode and they can ban the system, even if i dont play online or updating it??? for now i just unplug it for safety. can some one answer my question?
Nothing is for certain. It's too early on to know. We just posted what happens when you boot up your PS3 in JB or non JB mode. Since we can't get online at the moment, in a way we're banned already.

Which Ports or adresses i have to unblock, so i can update my downloaded games ? at moment i have blocked all internet access from the ps3 trough the router, it has only network access to transfer via FTP. I am from Germany, if this is important to answer the questions.
or where can i download patches for games?
What? Ofcourse you can get online, you can use your internet browser etc. You can't get on PSN and I think it's a small difference.
Since we can't get online at the moment
I believe crepo.ww.hl.playstation.net is supposed to be crepo.ww.dl.playstation.net

Either way thanks for the information DJLO.
What's all this about using your router to block web sites? Ports, yes, web sites, no, that's not what they're designed for. Connect your PS3 directly to your PC? That's a bit drastic.
You don't have to do anything fancy with your router, you don't need some sophisticated blocking app. You can leave your PS3 connected to your network, and it will be fine. Just follow these three simple steps.
Step 1: Add these addresses to your computer's HOSTS file, redirecting them to 0.0.0.0
Step 2: Download and run a freeware DNS server. Take your pick. Doesn't matter which one. The default settings should be fine.
Step 3: Change your Network settings on your PS3 and set your primary DNS server to your PC's internal IP address.
Done. All blocked. Very simple, but effective. No need to configure the DNS because you've cut the sites off at the HOSTS file. I'd say just about everyone should be able to do this easily.
Like most people here you're not getting it.

This is a discussion about what COULD happen if you connect your machine to the internet to get the game patches.

not if you want to update your games, or use anything related to playstation.net
