• If there was ever a reason to upgrade past Kmeaw CFW, PS3ita CFW is it. The new PS3ita 3.55 CFW automatically gives you full access to PSN without the use of external tools such as F*ck PSN, DNS, Charles etc..

    Features:

    The firmware is based on that of Kmeaw, but have added two small patches that allow access to the PSN!

    Access is not immediate need any PC to serve as a “broker” and programs like charles fu*kPsn or do not serve
    The PS3 is “set” to believe the PSN have the firmware installed 3:56.

    I state that the risk remains and I will BAN PS3ita We assume no responsibility!
    It’s up to you to decide whether or not to make use of the PSN and to install CFW with the following risks that entails!

    Now comes the installation tutorial, below tells you how to create your own CFW PUP, but like before you can also download a pre-made PUP and use that too.

    Installation:

    1.Unless you have not already done so, download and flash the firmware on your PS3 3:55 ORIGINAL SONY:Here

    2.Download the patch to create the CFW PS3ita (patch.diff):Here

    3.Now it’s time to patch the firmware 3:55 ORIGINAL SONY.

    Is easy to apply, download the following program (CFWPatcher_Installer.exe):Here

    Install and run it.

    Click File on the second button as marked in the image below and select the firmware you downloaded 3:55 ORIGINAL Sony 1 in the guide

    Now click the third button on the File and select the folder where you want to save the CFW that will be created

    Finally on the fourth button press File, select the patch (patch.diff) and click Execute
    4.Wait for the program to finish creating your beautiful custom firmware.

    5.Once the CFW verified that all worked out by comparing the hash:

    -Download the following program: Md5Checker
    - Run the program (you have to extract it from zip), click on the Add button and select the CFW.

    Wait a moment, and under “Current MD5″ will be a number, and check segnatevelo is identical to this: c82e3d857775c460a804f08b4cb33940 (you do not take into account whether the letters are case-sensitive)
    If the number matches means that your PUP is “healthy”!
    6.We go to the PS3, plug the USB device and with the standard method of 6b.installing the CFW-PS3ita.

    If you say that you have already upgraded to the latest software we need to go into RECOVERY MODE
    Here is the procedure for access:
    - Put the PS3 in standby (red LED)
    - Hold down the power button: the system will turn on and turn off at the third beep
    - Once off the PS3, hold down the power button again, you will hear 2 beeps and beeps twice
    - At this point you will be prompted to connect the controller to the USB port
    - Press the PS
    - If you present a menu with the following options:
    • Restart System: Please restart the PlayStation 3.
    • Restore Default Settings: Reset all system settings to default
    • Restore File System: Check any system files corrupted or missing.
    • Rebuild Database: Rebuilds the OS PLAYSTATION 3.
    • Restore PS3 System: reset: erase everything and start again from the factory defaults.
    • System Update: Update the PLAYSTATION 3 firmware with a user-supplied

    This is highlighted in red is the option for you, put the USB and install the CFW-PS3ita.

    Your done, enjoy. Remember you use PSN at your OWN risk of getting banned.

      "If you say that you have already upgraded to the latest software we need to go into RECOVERY MODE"

      what this mean ? that I can downgrade to this CFW even if i'm on 3.56OFW ? or he's meaning that if the device tell me that i have already..then I need to go into Recovery Mode to install this CFW ?

      A few questions to all the people that have tried or are trying this.

      Can you reflash the firmware back to OFW 3.55 after you have installed this one?
      Can you then re-upgrade to Kmeaw CFW 3.55 safely?
      Does all the apps and games still work? Is it any better or worse?
      Can you still unban your console if it gets banned?
      Has anyone bricked their console doing any of this?
      Are there any issues of any kind?
      What model/details is your ps3?

      When he says if you already upgraded, he means if you already have custom firmware. So if you have cf you must use recovery method.

      All of the various sites are telling everyone what it does but no one has enlightened us as to how it does it.

      With 3.60 coming so soon and this group not explaining the details I'd cautiously wait.

      I agree. don't think that this program is feasible to use at this time seeing that 3.60 is coming out tomorrow. i know that everyone has been waiting for this. Now will we see cfw 3.60? time will tell. can't wait to see what's in this update....

      Of course there will be measures against 3.55 PSN-connected consoles.

      Don't do it, or get banned- ensure consoleid spoof or whatever ..

      Seems like everyone wants their own CFW if they can move files and copy C scripts.

      Most obsolete firmware this one, 3.60 live the day after .. What a waste of time ! Go Kmeaw/Geohot

      You no longer need to use this now that there is the 3.60 spoof that gives you PSN Access, although it does not use the same method as this CFW.

      Still works fine for ps3 slim 120gb. I have updated from OFW 3.41 and instead of going to Kmeaw 3.55 i went to this one. Online working fine. Installed wipe history, Ninja and going on line no probs so far. Only problem i noticed is that Save Data Utility does not show my pen drive with data previously saved. I am not sure if anyone who installed has such a problem. My flash drive is being recognized as i can save a game data to it, load package files from it. However, if i want to load the data saved, i cannot see it on the Save Data Utility. Fat or Fat 32 flash drives same result. Anyone has known of such a problem ? Thanks !

      I'm currently on Hermes 3.41 and using Hermes' payload, also.

      The big problem i have is my BD drive doesn't work. It's the lens i believe, therefore making 100% discless playing a must!

      As all the new firmwares are flying out faster than people can perfect them, i've felt safer staying where i am, however eventually i KNOW i'm going to have to upgrade and be able to move with the flow of newer games.

      My question to the kind people of Ps3hax - Baring in mind my situation, which CFW setup would you suggest?

      Running PS3 fat (not sure of motherboard number etc)

      **i'm aware the post is slightly irrelevant, but i've tried other threads and failing to get a reply**

      I've installed kmeaw on a fat and PS3ita on another fat model. Both worked flawlessly. I would suggest PS3ita. It has all the kmeaw has, plus it has PSN support (for now). Though I think any PSN method would get you banned eventually.

      So, I'd suggest PS3ita, though you don't have to use online if you don't wanna. I'm in the same situation as you are, and I will install PS3ita for myself in a day or two.

      Take a note though that any game you've patched (eboot.bin patches) to work on your 3.41 will not work anymore, and you will have to unpatch them (bring back their origina eboot.bin files). Good luck!

      Thanks for replying, dude.
      Just to clarify, your disc drive is busted too?

      @ultimathaker - links please.

      @RoseOfSharyn - nope, sorry for the confusion. My drive is okay. As far as I know, some games work when started without a disk in the drive, while some games do not. I dunno if that's the case with all the FW's but one of those two new options you get when you hack your ps3, serves as a start icon for a game. When there was no disk in the drive, that icon turned into a game loaded icon. Though I'd certainly recommend starting it directly from the manager, if you have a faulty drive. I guess you don't have much choice, and any hacked firmware is better for you than nothing. Hope it works for you. Ask again if my posts get too confusing, I'm not too good with words these days. xD

      No, that made perfect sense - thank you!

      Still trying to seek advice from someone who may know the CFWs well enough to be able to advise me in the right direction.

      Thanks for your advice again though, grimlord!

      Not a problem. If I install CFW and find out anything new soon, I will let you know.
