From their site, roughly translated: We were waiting for new online game about developments on custom firmware (see kmeaw, geohot and others)

When one of the brightest minds of our team has produced what we call might, the fastest possible access for the PSN.

The firmware is based on Kmeaw's custom firmware, which were added to 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 FckPsn 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)

Here is the link of the guide: http://www.ps3ita.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3819

Of course the risk is still high and BAN of Being a CFW, PS3ITA assumes no responsibility for any brick during installation.

For those who have been following my problem of being endlessly in a firmware update loop, Just formatted the HDD after putting it in a PC, Now it works fine. So, if someone else gets into this problem, thats how you fix it!

Edit: Hm, Tried to connect and browse the internet, Now it says "An error has occoured : 80010102"

So...all this firmware did for me was add the /app/home option to the XMB, and disable my internet connection for browsing the net.

Does this CFW hide your Ps3 ID ?

I've updated too, but my MvC3 is not working. Doesn't even load. Can you tell me what I've done wrong?

"multiMAN cannot enable BD-ROM emulator. Functionality may be restricted!"

What does this mean? I can't load any of my backups
You need to redownload and install BD-Emu for multiman to work. It's really easy to do just search for BD-emu (http://www.multiupload.com/YTC47W3AJG) and follow the instructions.
