8w ago - Following up on PS3Ultimate 4.50 PS3 CFW v1.04, today PlayStation 3 developer RazorX returns with a Cinavia Protection PS3 Installer PKG for Custom Firmware which allows users to remove and restore it on 3.55, 4.21, 4.46 and 4.50 followed by a v1.01 update.
To quote: I have traced the Cinavia DRM checks to 4 separate sprx files and after a long time trying to patch these files I have found that 3 of those files are present in the DEBUG (DEX) firmware don't have the Cinavia DRM checks enabled. Files are videoplayer_util sprx, videoplayer_plugin sprx and videoeditor_plugin sprx.
I have successfully copied these 3 sprx files from DEBUG (DEX) FW 341 over to my retail PS3 unit running OFW 341 using dev_blind and Cinavia seems to be now disabled. I've confirmed this by playing back a number of Cinavia affected video files.
This means that Cinavia is now disabled for all DLNA playback...
