    You could ask @Alexander directly if he ever intends to produce one.

    Have you reported to @playerkp420 the problem you have had with his CFW ? A ban you say? How did that happen exactly?

    I doubt the ban was caused by my DB OFW. It doesn't make a difference who makes it. It is the same patches to 2 files, and resigned with same Metadata as OFW.

    Did u make sure to reinstall DB OFW every time you go to it from CFW? It would make more sense that you got banned from not doing so.

    Yea I am sure the ban came from logs Sony keeps and reviews. They don't ban one at a time. They keep records and ban multiple systems. You got flagged and kept on record. A DB won't do you any good with a ban anyhow without a new IDPS and new account anyhow @playerkp420 is a trusted and respected dev. And @Alexander already said he will not do one as it would be the EXACT same DB OFW.

    that's the way it worked on the 360. they'd ban people in waves, not individually. u just might not know ur banned until u try signing in.

    @atreyu187 is right.
    @Alexander did say that a few months ago, I remember it now.
    And S#ny bans en-masse...

    For 2 years, I have been using PSN regularly on CFW with psnpatch & I never got banned once..
    If you got banned you somehow must have made some mistake, forgot to do something or whatever. You may not remember it.

    Now you need a new set of ids & a new account before you can play online again...
    Your best option imo is to buy a $10 ylod console that is unbanned to extract its ids.

    we might be able to determine when sony bans. most ban waves on the 360 occurred in the Fall before a big update of some sort. they'd plant a flag on the system's kv to know who was up for a ban. the kv is console-specific information. a similar flag may be placed on the ps3.

    It's possible. That or another system with the same effect.

    It would be interesting to collect reports of banned users actually...
    If we had started to do that years ago we would know a lot more about bans, how they happen, when, where maybe even why...

    it sounds like it has a lot to do with the games u play rather than if ur system is running cfw. I think sony was very arrogant in thinking the ps3 was unhackable, so they were caught off guard. on the 360, there hasn't been a ban wave in years though. they came out with ap 2.5 which sent challenges to the dvd drive to combat piracy, but c4eva (the cfw dev - only one person afaik) would counter with newer firmware. now, it's almost undetectable by microsoft, so m$ just gave up on banning. sony, on the other hand, is still pretty pissed that the ps3 was hacked, so I don't see them ever giving up.

    I also believe it's more to do with the games you play.
    MS can be pragmatic that way whereas s#ny what can I say... Thumb down...

    games like black ops had a way of scanning the games folder. Nintendo was able to determine if u were using a flash cart by saving dummy data to the micro-sd. the dummy data would be larger than the save partition, so it knew u were using flash media. it sounds like that's what's being used with the ps3. that's something I think @deank believed. I remember reading that somewhere. simply save to a folder u shouldn't have access to, and u'll know. it's the easiest way to know. however, I don't know what to say about people on db firmware being banned. I could be totally wrong about this.

    I don't think the console I had at the time was banned I just found it more of an inconvenience to sign in to PSN every time I wanted to get use Netflix so after I fixed it I wondered how many others I could do (I got the bug) so when this system got banned it just gave me more motivation

    I'm sure many people appreciate ur work. that's what keeps me coming back to the scene. as u know, there's so much drama that happens, it's difficult at times to come back. that's what keeps me coming back. I always saw myself as being the bridge between a normal member and devs, so that they can make their system the best it can be. when people appreciate ur hard work it really touches u and ur glad that u did it, u know what I mean?

    I think if either MS or Sony really wanted to ban all users who connect to their online services while using modified consoles they could, they could easily build in a new check into a sprx on new FW (ps3) that looks for certain files with different checksums/sizes to original versions and set a ban flag if they are found, by the time the CFW community realised the check/flag was there it would be too late.

    For example all they would have to do in most cases on PS3 is check dev_hdd0 for a fb.xml and check if it has correct checksum/or is correct size. If they did that then flagged them for a ban, BOOM, everyone with WebMAN installed is banned, then they could check the category game xmls for references to fb.xml and xmbm+, BOOM, every user of Rebug banned. They could also check dev_flash for any file with the .bak extension and ban all those users too, So we are really very lucky they ban game cheaters mostly, because they have methods that could be used to ban us all.. I am actually glad they ban cheaters.

    I've been using the same PSN id on 4 devices so far for 3 years.. mainly 2001B and A01, later on I used it on E01 and DECR1000A.

    Things I've done so far --

    1. EBOOT mod while on PSN logged in
    2. running homebrew while PSN logged in
    3. NOT using SEN or PSNpatch for 2 years..
    4. ReactPSN
    5. Countless bricks and FW reinstallation
    6. IDPS spoofing
    7. Syncing Trophies
    8. Trophy hack via plugins (testing purpose)
    9. Save resign
    10. PSN while fake save data owner on
    11. "3" activated devices on the same account (DECR1000A,A01,E01)
    12. FW version spoofing.

    And yet still hasn't been banned. People who got banned over using DB-OFW or any other CFW, their IDPS may have been stolen or abused enough by previous owners who may have stolen your IDPS unless they just got unlucky lol..

    No ban for me ever even was flagged with warning email during early days of 3,41. . Usually misuse or I'd stolen as you stated
