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.

Being a DEX user, I am not bothered about the risks personally. I converted to DEX as soon as the information was released in July. I didn't wait for any NOOB friendly guides etc. But DEX will ALWAYS be more powerful than standard CEX. Funny when people flame DEX users though
Why do people think Sony are patching DEX FW to stop us. Because with DEX features there is no need to wait and cry about there not being a patch for X game on X firmware. They just work on DEX! + All the features it offers
yup a dex 4.25cfw will always be more useful than a cex 4.25cfw but for most users right now who are only wanting to convert to DEX for the games may as well just wait on 3.55 cex untill a better 4.25cex cfw is available.
same as most people who are already on dex 4.25. they are safer staying on dex and waiting for the dex 4.25cfw release. (dont convert to cex just to run the new 4.25cfw it isn't worth the risks stay on dex and wait.)
but in the end its your own choice and anything you do to your consoles is at own risk, as any cfw or dex tutorial will tell you.
DEX is NEVER pointless. It has its benefits. Funny people trying to slate DEX users even though DEX will ALWAYS have more features than CEX. Not all features useful to the people who are slating DEX users never-the-less.
As soon as peek and poke is added to DEX i don't see ANY reason to go back to CEX. With DEX at least i can upgrade and downgrade my firmware is a matter of minutes unlike CEX users. As soon as they're on 4.21/4.25 they can't downgrade WITHOUT a hardware flasher.
