Hi all, Been reading as many resources as I can before starting the jailbreak process, I'm a total noob and would appreciate some help before I start. I'm currently on 4.81 and plan to manually update to 4.82 to install CFW on a PS3 slim. I don't want to risk a ban of my main PSN account and don't plan on going online with this PS3, as least on my main account. I'm also planning on installing a new hard drive into the system, so I'm really wondering what the best approach for all of this would be. My questions: 1. Should I deactivate my PS3 on my Sony account, create a second account through Sony on a PC, and use that going forward when starting the jailbreak process? 2. Whether or not I use a new hard drive, should the hard drive be formatted on a PC and then inserted into the system for a clean slate/install? While everything from my main account is currently installed on the system, I don't really care to make a backup since I would be using CFW for emulation mostly 3. I'm unclear whether the PS3 needs to be activated (again) once I format everything. If so, I understand there's still a way to do it on 4.82 using PSNproxy, is that correct? Basically, I really don't want my main account to be banned or even have the possibility of a ban, since I have way too much paid content. If someone has a better suggestion on how to approach this, I would greatly appreciate your thoughts. Thanks!
