17w ago - Following up on their previous release, today French PlayStation 3 developers Dev-Team-SPT / ARCH via arachetous have released Cinavia Remover Tools RC1 for all PS3 CFW (CEX) 4.3X / 4.XX Custom Firmware.
To quote, roughly translated: Here is a homebrew that will allow you to remove DRM protection Cinavia as simply as possible and it will also allow you to restore the Cinavia DRM protection if you want.
So, no need to include this function in a CFW with this homebrew to do it for you quickly.
Removes DRM Cinavia protection and restoration allows it if you wish.
Copy the package to a USB drive formatted in fat32
Connect the device to the console and install the package via "install_package_file"
Then run the homebrew from this icon in the game column of XMB
Choose from the main menu: Remove or Restore Cinavia DRM Protection
Then confirm again your choice and follow the instructions. (Basically always put YES to restart the console)

If you do, I would check out one of the more established PS3 CFW's... specifically either Rebug, Rogero or ErmaC as some of these others are more experimental (for people with hardware flashers who don't mind taking a risk with their console).
As for the procedure, it is covered fairly extensively in the Rebug and Rogero threads... if you need links I can dig them up.
Following up on their previous release, French developers Dev-Team-SPT / ARCH have released PS3 CFW Arch CEX 4.30 Rev 2.00 and 4.00 Custom Firmware alongside a MultiMAN Stealth version for those with flashers who don't mind experimenting.
To quote, roughly translated: Revision 2.00 CFW Update to 4.30 released with CEX ARCH fixes and additions detailed below and a version of MultiMAN v04.13.00 Stealth.
As a reminder, a version of MultiMAN Stealth allows you to play backups of your games when connecting to PSN but you will appear as extended spirited play on the game demo version of JAP-NPJA90067 instead that you see on MultiMAN. A big thanks to Deank manager for Great About!
NOTE => For the moment it is too dangerous to release a 4.31 CFW because too unstable (a Core_os re-compiled on different CFW / OFW does not mix well with our ps3 as we have seen recently). I prefer the stability brickage massive!
Installation directory MultiMAN Stealth => dev_hdd0 / game / NPJA90067.
ARCH CFW 4.30 rev 2.00 (CEX PS3 only)
Add: compatible PS3 BD player off (must be used in MultiMAN latest version available for your backups run games)
Add: Rebug Package Manager
Add: Patched disable Cinanvia
Fixed Core_OS (more stability)
Optional: Change coldboot (all public)
Optional: Police original writing
Known bugs: problem classification in game menu and XMB displaying the home PS3 demo mode (correction to come)
MultiMAN Stealth Version:
Added a wave.divx
Theme modified original
Stealth Version => game demo version of JAP NPJA90067

So is this one more stable? I would like to install it but if its unstable like Rogero 4.21 then I will wait. I only have a handful of games waiting to be patched, either the keys so I can patch myself or a stable CFW is needed. I prefer the keys as the PS3 has a lot less chance of bricking.
Oh, a handful of games waiting but heaps of patched and playable games so no hurry really.
