performed using update data that is older than 3.55. As for details, please refer to the following technical note.

  • Restrictions Regarding the Downgrading of the PlayStation 3 Reference Tool/PlayStation 3 Debugging Station (Technote ID:201101-05 [Register or Login to view links])

WARNING: Do *NOT* update from version below 0.96 directly to this flash. Instead, update from earlier versions to version 0.96, then update to this version. Failure to update to 0.96 prior to applying this flash may render your hardware inoperable. Such hardware must be returned to SCE for repair.

As always, it's important to note that these PS3 Debug / TEST updates will currently NOT install on a retail PS3, and so it is intended for examination and comparison purposes only unless you own a Dev unit.

For those curious, running this updater on a retail PS3 will not damage it, however, it will give the following error before the installation completes: The data type is not supported. (8002F029)

PS3ita_cfw_4.21dex_v2.2PUP MD5: 7e843fe9c17973ccb6c0ed0b27ab0a48

To quote, roughly translated: Following the latest developments, PS3ITA is pleased to present a new version of CFW 4.21 PS3ITA DEX (debug). This update, accompanied by PKG external Ps3ita Loader introduces a modified core with the ability to customize your choice to integrate some flag or not.

In practice, after installing the CFW, each user can choose with ease, such as extra feature, the console should start automatically during the ignition phase.

The changes introduced in 4.21 CFW PS3ITA DEX v2.2 are:

1. Spoof firmware 4.40.

2. IDPS All Change region 4.21 is now integrated in the fw and runs automatically during boot the console, there is no need to start it manually after every boot. To log on to the PSN simply log in as you were on an ordinary OFW.

3. Sys_init_osd.self New, allows the start of our core (ps3itald.self) during boot the console. IMPORTANT: all credits for this go to sys_init_osd Miralatijera we just added a little bit (to make it boot faster) and brought patches to the nost cfw, ps3itald.self instead is a creation of our team. The core ps3itald.self is easily customizable thanks to PKG ps3ita loader.

4. Fixed bug that did not allow the boot cd / dvd original PS2 PS3 backwards compatible.

5. Vsh Patch magazines, ReactPsn now works perfectly.

6. 0x80022D74 0x80022D11 Fix for errors relating to the trophies, in some cases after a downgrade by service mode was returned one of these errors and was forced to leave the game.

How to proceed with the installation of the CFW:

1. Sure you have a console with CFW / OFW DEX (Debug) version 3.55/4.21.

2. Strictly Install the Firmware Downgrader 3.55 ([Register or Login to view links])

3. PS3ITA Install CFW 4.21 DEX v2.2.

Through the program ps3ita loader you can manage the core ps3itald.self and add / remove functions that will be performed automatically boot the console .. (I think many of you will appreciate the "install_new_idps" allows you to permanently change your console id with one of your choice ...).

How does Ps3ita Loader:

1. Ps3ita Copy the folder in the root of the USB stick.

2. Move the flag you want to install from the / ps3ita / NOT_ACTIVE in / ps3ita. (Flags are simple text files, and inside they explained their function).

3. Insert the USB stick into the port on the right of the PS3.

4. Install the pkg "ps3ita_loader" and run it. If something goes wrong, the LED turns red, otherwise fine. A log file in / dev_usb000/ps3ita cmq will be created to verify if all the steps have taken place correctly.

5. New features are now active.

I thank the entire team and especially PS3ITA Rancid (o) which followed / carried out the entire project.
