March 9, 2011 // 5:55 pm - Today Italian PS3 site PS3ITA (linked above) have released a PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware - Rancid CFW 3.55 allowing full PSN access without requiring users to run a program via PC.

From their site, roughly translated: We were waiting for new online game about developments on custom firmware (see kmeaw, geohot and others)

When one of the brightest minds of our team has produced what we call might, the fastest possible access for the PSN.

The firmware is based on Kmeaw's custom firmware, which were added to 2 small patches which allow access to the PSN!

Access is fast, no PC is needed to serve as a "bridge" and then programs like FckPsn or charles, skipping the check of the model (debug, retail, reftool, etc..) And setting of the PS3 fw at 3.56.. (Not in the XMB)

Here is the link of the guide: http://www.ps3ita.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=3819

Of course the risk is still high and BAN of Being a CFW, PS3ITA assumes no responsibility for any brick during installation.

My point was that you would need another updated cfw for it to work on 3.60.

"To quote: We’ve got an exciting new feature coming exclusively to PlayStation Plus subscribers. Included in the system software update (v3.60) coming tomorrow to PS3"

So it seems 3.60 will hit tomorrow.

Thanks for the news Ecniv and +Rep. A lot of others posted this in every section but the Member News one where all incoming news belongs, so they were all -Rep'd and their posts and replies were deleted.

It's right at the top of the Forums here, has been this way for months and is self-explanatory, so not sure why some people are too clueless to know where to submit news.
