60w 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 have a question regarding my PS3 CEX to DEX console.
The console's Blu Ray drive died, so, many months ago, I converted to DEX. I believe I have xaxaxaaxa patched DEX FW (I'm sure I installed this). I converted from a CEX CFW as running games discless was a bit hit and miss. The DEX firmware has served me well, that is until games requiring 4.40 FW started to appear.
Would I be correct in thinking that games patched to run on firmware < 4.40 would not run on DEX, as any update PKG for the game would (potentially) necessitate 4.40 FW? Of course this would only be the case for the very latest games.
Is there any way I can run these new games on my console as it is now? Or should I try to convert back to CEX and keep my fingers crossed that discless compatibility is a bit better now? Or should I lay out 20 quid on a new Blu Ray drive (and then convert back to CEX anyway)? Or... something else?
Thanks in advance
Er... I meant MiralaTijera 4.30 patched DEX FW - no idea how I screwed that bit up!
