Hi friends,

 

I got a ps3 from my brother which is in demonstration mode. When I tried to access playstation network , I am unable to access that and it is showing like " This operation cannot be performed in demonstration mode " . I tried in all forms to get rid of this. I want to permanently unlock the demonstration mode. somehow i checked in some forums to unlock the ps3 from demo mode with some codes but after restrating the ps3 it is again going back to demo mode.

 I want permanent solution for this and I want to play online and I am new to ps3. please help.

 

Now my ps3 is in 4.11 version . 

 

A great thanks in advance.

Your brother should never have gotten his hands on a retail demo console to start with. They're meant for displaying in retail outlets like Game and HMV. They're not for home use, and they're considered the property of SCEI. There is no way to permanently unlock the console, it will always revert to demo mode whenever it's switched on. So you're stuck with it.

there is no permanant solution but what i do is i get the code put it in the security settings code space. then i go to security settings and goto change password, type in the code again and the use the new pass as 0000,1111,2222,3333....etc any one works, just use something easy to remember, when it updates again take the new code and do the same thing

It's not a "real" PS3 and if you are unsure of its origins. May have been pinched from a shop. If you call Sony and are incredibly polite then they may exchange it for a retail one for returning their unit

if right now u have 4.23 u can turn it off temporarly but it will go back to demo once it is restarted  but the Only way of getting out of Demo mode permanetly is to find the official firmware 4.25 and update to it.  no other solution i did and it worked trust me.

heres the link i used to get out of 4.50 ps3 demo mode ppl so if ur on 4.46 update it to 4.50 then use this reverter trust me :https://www.dropbox.com/s/1t6qupjlsey345m/4.50%20Reverter.zip

 

after you download it rename it to PS3UPDAT.PUP

and create a folder "PS3" at the root of your usb drive

then create a folder called "UPDATE" inside "PS3"

and put the file"PS3UPDAT.PUP" inside "UPDATE"

after that make sure you already turn off "update auto......"(or somethings like that)
and make sure you set your password as 0000

and you are good to go 

set your ps3 into recovery mode,then update your ps3 with the file you just downloaded

once you done that ,you are back to the 4.50 ofw
