31w ago - Today the Italian PlayStation 3 developers at PS3ITA have released a PSoN DEX PKG allowing PS3 DEX (Debug) PSN access without the Software Pack nor FckPSN required for those who have converted their console from PS3 CEX to DEX.
From their blog, roughly translated: Fresh news.. now thanks to itskamel you can access the store without FckPSN with a PS3 CEX.
Thanks to his work (and that of the people who helped him) we were able to develop a version for PS3 DEX.
Requirements: PS3 Debug (DEX) upright any CFW 3.55
1) Install "PSoN_DEX" on your PS3 DEX (Update: use "PS3ITA_PSoN_DEX_V2.pkg" on PS3 instead)
2) Start "PSoN_DEX" and wait for the reboot of the console
3) Install "Change_IDPS" on PS3 (Update: use "Change_IDPS-All_Region" on PS3 instead)
4) Run "Change_IDPS"
5) Connect to PSN
Change_IDPS must be started after every reboot of the console before groped access to the PSN (if you do not get an error: 8002A224)
Check in the debug menu settings (it's under Network Settings), the NP Environment setting is set as NP (not SP-INT)
L 'IDPS is set as European (0 x 85)
Thanks to all the people involved in the implementation of the version for PS3 CEX, without them this would never come out PSoN DEX: itskamel, anonymous person, BobbyBlunt, EUSS, Zecoxao, sandungas.
Note: The article has been updated with Change_IDPS-All_Region.pkg. This new PKG files allow you to set the IDPS according to your region (EU, USA, etc..) Through an automated recognition.
Update: Italian PS3 ccene developer Rancid has been hard at work the last few days, first releasing PSoN and Change_IDPS Applications which allow users on DEX 3.55 access online, and now he's updated both apps again to include automatically setting your region in change_IDPS application and updating PSoN to version 2 which includes access to the PS3 Store and access to the TV section of the XMB.
UK users have an added bonus by getting access to 4OD and ITV Player, (BBC Iplayer not working), all without losing your Debug menus, no messing around with dev_blind or replacing certificates.

I shouldn't have kept trying entering service mode then. Can you still link me to a tutorial? And about the flasher, could I use a solderless E3 if I find it? I apply it, re-flash the NOR and remove it? Or does it have to be always attached to the MB?
So, I recently converted my CEX3.55 to DEX in order to play the newest games, since nothing was happening in the scene for alot of time. Of course 3 days later 4.21CFW was already out. Anyway, when I was bored by DEX3.55 (I never updated it to DEX4.21 or anything) I decided to convert it back to original OFW or Rebug 3.55.3 and then update to one of the available cfw's.
I still had my original NOR dump of course, so straight away I put it on a USB stick and flashed it again using Multiman (as I had read on a tutorial). Of course that didn't work. When I attempted to turn it on again it simply gave me the infamous 10 beeps, so I searched if I could fine a solution for that.
Some said the problem would be solved by just putting a FW on a USB stick and putting the ps3 in service mode. So, I brought back my Teensy 2.0++ I used on the old days of 3.41 cfw, and put the PS3 in service mode (using the Lv2diag.self IN file) then it started flashing blue (they say after 5 minues it should re-install the fw, but it didn't). I waited for nearly 30 minutes and nothing happened, plus HDD light and USB light were off. I decided to turn it off and retry.
I retried twice and same problem, and then after re-booting the ps3 bang, YLOD. The ps3 would of course not boot in service mode, so I tried the reflowing method to try to fix this. I tried doing that THREE TIMES, and it never worked. Now I don't know what to do, the only thing I can think of about this maybe I didn't apply enough thermal compound since the syringe was almost empty.
Anyway, the only thing working now it the super-spinning fans thing. I still have my Teensy 2.0++, so I could flash it to the PS3 and try to re-flash the NOR I guess? I that would be the only solution, could you link me to a guide, since I couldn't find any.
The only thing stopping me from doing that is that I would have to solder a lot of wires, and I really don't want to. If that is the only solution, I might even consider one of those E3's or progskeet's or wait for a proper cfw to install on my third ps3
ANYWAY, thanks everyone for reading, and hopefully for helping me resolve this problem!
