You might want to hold off on jailbreaking your PS3, particularly if you spend much time online. Turns out that Sony can detect the software ID used by the program used for jailbreaking, and then ban your PS3 remotely. What’s the solution? Either don’t use your hacked PS3 on the Playstation network, or don’t use the hack on it in the first place. TGDaily reported that some of the people who created the hack in question are warning people not to go online while running the software. Of course, you might not need to go online since you’ll be able to run backup copies of your PS3 software, but consider this fair warning.
