36w ago - Following up on his previous spoofer, today French PlayStation 3 scene developer SonGoku84 (aka SGK) has released what he calls SGK Enable / Disable Spoof for PS3 Firmware 4.25 to access PSN again with Custom Firmware (CFW).
Currently it's getting mixed reports whether it works properly or not (some say FckPSN is still required), but for those who wish to give it a try it's below with a rough translation (via ps-addict.fr/forum/sgk-enable-disable-spoof-t7132.html#p77180), as follows:

As always, keep in mind these PUP updates will currently NOT install on a retail PS3, and so they are intended for examination and comparison purposes only.
We have 100% confirmed that 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)
I will be adding more as I have time to upload them.
1- Added the 3.56 and 3.60 appldr/NPDRM key sets.
2- Patched many version checks and extended keys table index to activate the usage of newly added keys.
3- Games with Eboots version 3.56 are now working without the need for any patch, the CFW can decrypt the Eboot on the fly.
4- Games with Eboots version 3.60 are still giving an error on load due to some additional 3.60 checks that are being worked on. ("EAUTHFAIL | 0x80010017 | Program authentication fail (Error starting BluRay game)" which may need to be addressed outside appldr)
