Sony Pulls The Plug On Spoofers, Makes PS3 Firmware 4.21 Mandatory

July 10, 2012

It was only a matter of time before Sony decided to crack down on the custom firmware family of PS3s running about on the PlayStation Network. They’ve made the last firmware update for the PS3mandatory and have prevented spoofers from working.

What’s happening now is pretty straightforward. PS3 Users are reporting that their choice of spoofer is no longer enabling PSN access on their custom firmware PS3s. Some of the reports are stemming from fuckPSN and nathan_r32_69’s SEN Enabler & Disabler. The strange thing about Sony’s move is that users with PS3 consoles on the 4.20 official firmware are reporting that they are not being prompted to update to 4.21.

The tl;dr version to this is to stay connected to the PSN as long as you can, to avoid being blocked from going online. That’s the warning that’s at your discretion of heeding. Let us know if you’re still on PSN and if you somehow managed to get back online after signing off.  If you were able to get your PS3 back online after signing off of PSN drop by the comments or Dashhacks forums and let other members know what steps you took to get back on PSN.

We’ll keep you posted.
