I know this has likely been asked, a bunch of times in different ways, but this is a little different. I've been messing with mods since the original Pandora's battery days, and even modded my vita a few years back, and what I've heard is there tend to be 'fairly safe' and 'Kinda risky' activities you can do with your system. For example, with the vita, I don't think I've heard of anyone getting banned for being connected to PSN while using homebrew. However messing with trophies tend to throw up some flags. I'm wondering if anyone has similar guidance for PS3 modding. So far I'm aware of the baseline: Don't launch hen from your main profile Don't Install packages from your main profile. Don't be connected to PSN while launching hen. But I've been wondering about how risky other things would be, for example: (Offline) Enable hen, switching profiles to your main account then running homebrew/injected ps2 games. (Offline) edit/inject save files for your main account. (Offline) Play dumped games on your main account. (After enabling Hen) Switch your main profile then connect to psn. Playing dumped games while connected to PSN (single player). (offline) Using webMAN tools from your main account. I know we don't have specifics on what exactly sony collects data or how it's used, And I don't plan to try all 5 of those things, I'm just wondering how risky it would be to do them, then to later connect to psn (from reboot) to download some games. Speculation's fine, but I'd also like to know if they've caused anyone to get banned.
