Question about Sony Playstation 3 (PS3) Console
I bought a PS3 demo mode console on the ebay website and I didnt know there were two diffrent kinds of ps3's 1 is the original ps3 for home users and the other is the kiosk demo mode ps3. The guy that sold me the ps3 wont give me my money back so wondering how to bypass the demo mode completly. I did use the firmware security code but it still wont let you access bluray movies nor bluray ps3 games. Is there away to delete the XMB OS on the ps3??
In security settings press and hold select + square + L1 and L2
than enter 1 of these following codes depending on your version number
1.5x code: 5202
1.6x code: 7568
1.7x code: 0506
1.8x code: 7712 or 7259
and the ps3 will be unlocked from demo mode!
but be aware that this will only be for a couple of minutes.
so make sure you have the latest firmware the not demo one but the ordinary from the playstation site on a removable storage media
something like a memory stick or flash drive
so you can update immediately after unlocking you ps3! only this way you can completely unlock your system

To unlock Demo mode. Go to settings/security and enter L1 + R1, Select and Square then enter code for your version OS. v 2.51 is 6258.
This will unlock until you shut off system. You may not have web access if you don't have the latest OS but I don't know the code for anything past version 2.51
Still no permanent unlock solution.
