Can I permanently remove Demo mode from a Demo PS3?
1st, don't demonize me as I have seen others demonized in other forums.
I bought a Demo PS3 from Circuit City in Collierville, TN a few years back when they went out of business. I have the unlock codes to take it out of demonstration mode. However, the system is never truly out of demo mode. Several features are unavailable on this PS3. I can not access features like Netflix and other online resources.
I can play DVDs/BRDs PS1,2&3 games, access the internet, and other basic functions. I tried swapping out the HDD with no change in performance. This leads me to believe that the demo mode is hardware deep. Has anyone successfully unlocked one of these demo PS3s?
