    11-13-2012 06:33 PM #1 Error 8002A224 FIX + Possible Unban Method


    Hello. Recently I had gotten the error 8002A224 on my 4.21.1 PS3 the day Sony started banning people. Well, come to find out. It's also a console ban. I searched and searched and all it came out to be was a console ban. No one had a fix as far as I knew. I searched for hours on end trying to find a way to fix this. Found NOTHING! I did a Restore Default Settings in the Recovery Menu and it works only for the first time you sign in w/ the error code 8002A224. Then after you rebooted your PS3, signed off, etc. It would continuously give the error. So I remembered the old PSIDPatcher app back from 3.55. I FINALLY got it signed for 4.21.1 and to my luck, it worked! The steps will be below along with the download! Hope this works for you guys, if it doesn't, I'll request this thread to be taken down.

    1. Restore Default Settings in the Recovery Menu (DO NOT SIGN IN AFTER)
    2. Download the PSIDPatcher for 4.21/3.55 [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] | [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
    3. Install the pkg and run
    4. Press (X) 3-4 times then press (SQUARE) 3-4 times
    5. Press Triangle to exit then reboot PS3
    6. Open up Rebug Toolbox and go to the far right menu
    7. Scroll to very bottom and change to 0x85 (EUR)
    8. Exit then reboot PS3
    9. Try to sign-in to PSN

    NOTE: AS FAR AS I KNOW, THIS METHOD FIXES ERROR 8002A224. I HAVE NOT TESTED THIS ON ANY OTHER ERRORS, THAT IS WHY IT SAYS "Possible Unban Method."

    Proof mine worked:

    The only reason this works is because it gets rid of your old console id and psid and changes it to a random one....you still need a legitimate console id to sign in....
    PS3 SLIM 160 GB (CECH-2501A) REBUG 4.30.2 DEX
    PS3 FAT 120 GB (CECH-H01) OFW 4.40
    PS3 FAT 80 GB (CECH-K01) OFW 4.40

    It does, it just doesn't show it. The only thing it will show changing is your Console ID at the bottom.

    Thats when you have to keep changing your IDs till it stops trust me, this has happened to people around a month or two ago. it gives that error because you're using someone else's ID :lol:
