A smart group of forum users over at PS3ITA have released a new CFW for the v3.55 PS3 Console owners, that allows for full PSN Access! Quote: We were waiting for new developments about online game on custom firmware (see kmeaw, geohot and others) when one of the brightest minds of our team has produced what we might call, the fastest possible access for the PSN. The firmware is based on Kmeaw’s custom firmware, to which were added 2 small patches which allow access to the PSN! Access is fast,no PC is needed to serve as a ” bridge “and then programs like ****Psn or charles, skipping the check of the model (debug, retail, reftool, etc.) and setting of the PS3 fw at 3:56 .. (not in the XMB) Of course the risk of BAN is still high and being a CFW, ps3ita assumes no responsibility for any brick during installation
Is Sony planning to finally do massive banning of PS3 consoles running CFW, or to plug the holes that programs like Charles and F@ckPSN have been able to use to exploit in gaining access to their PSN network even tho the PS3 console has already been banned or is still running an older firmware version?
