Error 8001050F Resolved!
After nearly 24 hours of the PSN being down for us fatty owners, the error has been resolved and you should be able to have access to your trophies, games, themes, downloads, etc. I know this because I just tried it out, thanks to Fleakitten mentioning some folks are able to log in. My Afrika theme must have been corrupted yesterday, but it’s working good now, so chances are, corrupted Trophy data has been fixed as well, and you would not have lost any of that data.
Now all we need to hope for is that this is a permanent fix and not something temporary.
I hit the nail on the head. Sony has made the new official on the official blog:
We are aware that the internal clock functionality in the PS3 units other than the slim model, recognized the year 2010 as a leap year. Having the internal clock date change from February 29 to March 1 (both GMT), we have verified that the symptoms are now resolved and that users are able to use their PS3 normally.
Will the same happen in 2014? Guess we’ll have to wait and see, but it is definitely official now.
From the sound of it, if you tried to play any games and you got the corrupted trophy data error, you did, in fact, lose those trophies, so you will most likely have to re-attain them if you hadn’t synced in a while. Synced trophies should still be OK, but there have been some conflicting reports that it may have deleted some synced trophies, but I’m not sure if that’s entirely accurate. If you ever get that error again, don’t touch anything and contact Sony’s customer service (unless it’s universal).
