Upgrade from 3.55 CFW to 3.56
Upgrade from 3.55 CFW to 3.56 –
if you update to the new custom firmware from a jailbreaked console you get banned,because Sony checks a file inside the system...so i would like to know where the heck that stupid file is!
Is it inside a special part of the console or inside the hard disc?
If i change the hdd is there i possibility to save my ps3?
My intentions was to change the hdd and install on the one the original 3.56,but if Sony keeps informations on my ps3 on a server,even if i update on a clean disc sony will ban me,is it correct?
I am not 100% sure this is totally correct, but if you update from 3.55 CFW to 3.56 OFW, Sony more than likely will not ban you. Those letters they sent out were kind of a "last warning" type deal to my understanding….they are just letting you know they know you have the programs, and they are giving you a chance to remove them……so I am sure if you keep the CFW and/or unauthorized programs, you will end up getting banned within the next couple weeks.
As of 1/26/2011:

Sure-fire way to prevent PSN Bans: Update to OFW!
I honestly believe that warning was just to get people on 3.56 and then ban them. Why would a corporate giant warn people and give them a second chance? It's not like the small percentage of hacked consoles is really effecting their cash cow. I think it's a bait and switch to be honest but that's my personal opinion.
But if you wanna upgrade, restore to factory default, remove everything from your harddrive, and then do a reformat just to make sure. Then upgrade. Also you might wanna make another PSN account just to be safe. So that way that account won't have any tainted actions on it so you can stay legit.
I think you might be on to something there! That would be the perfect strategy to deal a strong blow to the scene members. Trick some into thinking there's some kind of amnesty, get them to connect to PSN and BAM!!! Ban hammer!!! Suddenly leaving people banned from PSN and for the moment out of the chance to get back on cfw. I just don't trust sony, not going to upgrade either of my ps3's to 3.56ofw, no way.
