PS3ita_cfw_4.21dex_v2.2PUP MD5: 7e843fe9c17973ccb6c0ed0b27ab0a48

To quote, roughly translated: Following the latest developments, PS3ITA is pleased to present a new version of CFW 4.21 PS3ITA DEX (debug). This update, accompanied by PKG external Ps3ita Loader introduces a modified core with the ability to customize your choice to integrate some flag or not.

In practice, after installing the CFW, each user can choose with ease, such as extra feature, the console should start automatically during the ignition phase.

The changes introduced in 4.21 CFW PS3ITA DEX v2.2 are:

1. Spoof firmware 4.40.

2. IDPS All Change region 4.21 is now integrated in the fw and runs automatically during boot the console, there is no need to start it manually after every boot. To log on to the PSN simply log in as you were on an ordinary OFW.

3. Sys_init_osd.self New, allows the start of our core (ps3itald.self) during boot the console. IMPORTANT: all credits for this go to sys_init_osd Miralatijera we just added a little bit (to make it boot faster) and brought patches to the nost cfw, ps3itald.self instead is a creation of our team. The core ps3itald.self is easily customizable thanks to PKG ps3ita loader.

4. Fixed bug that did not allow the boot cd / dvd original PS2 PS3 backwards compatible.

5. Vsh Patch magazines, ReactPsn now works perfectly.

6. 0x80022D74 0x80022D11 Fix for errors relating to the trophies, in some cases after a downgrade by service mode was returned one of these errors and was forced to leave the game.

How to proceed with the installation of the CFW:

1. Sure you have a console with CFW / OFW DEX (Debug) version 3.55/4.21.

2. Strictly Install the Firmware Downgrader 3.55 (

3. PS3ITA Install CFW 4.21 DEX v2.2.

Through the program ps3ita loader you can manage the core ps3itald.self and add / remove functions that will be performed automatically boot the console .. (I think many of you will appreciate the "install_new_idps" allows you to permanently change your console id with one of your choice ...).

How does Ps3ita Loader:

1. Ps3ita Copy the folder in the root of the USB stick.

2. Move the flag you want to install from the / ps3ita / NOT_ACTIVE in / ps3ita. (Flags are simple text files, and inside they explained their function).

3. Insert the USB stick into the port on the right of the PS3.

4. Install the pkg "ps3ita_loader" and run it. If something goes wrong, the LED turns red, otherwise fine. A log file in / dev_usb000/ps3ita cmq will be created to verify if all the steps have taken place correctly.

5. New features are now active.

I thank the entire team and especially PS3ITA Rancid (o) which followed / carried out the entire project.

Thanks for that tip, luckily both ps3s already on multiman 04.11.11

I ain't got round to installing it yet. i aint actually turned any of my ps3s on all day. been more interested in seeing if many bans happen over the next 24 hours. (bought a mini model helicopter and i've been playing really i'm only 40)

Also below is a Black Ops 2 - BLES01717 DEX fix 1.02 from beanbaggins stating the following:


I won't try the new DEX CFW yet so I can't confirm that this works online, but it should. I have tested Campaign mode and Zombies first level, and both are working fine on my end.

Also here is a Hitman Absolution Dex patch, tested and working from kittoo:

I somewhat agree, but I think the next big thing would be that hard to find exploit for the higher ofw users

Well, I'm stupid - I thought it had something to do with Vita. Otherwise this really isn't too exciting. I guess we've already gotten the "next big thing" anyways.

Hi Guys,

Ca someone put that sentence into other words : "IMPORTANT: If you are on ofw debug than 4.21 (type 4.25) must strictly pass before the fw Downgrader DEX"

I don't get it ? Thx for you Help

i don't need the change idps really cos its never going to be connected to internet. most its gonna get is connected to a pc through a router. and il make sure that router has no net access.

i've no idea why i struggle with those ilivid sites, but after the 6th attempt it gave me the right file finally.. always best to have it anyway

When the Change_IDPS is functioning properly, the LED will switch on the console from the usual green color to YELLOW

that sounds scarey, i really don't like my ps3 having yellow lights.

shame this wasn't a week ago when i had to go through the hassle of reverting to cex to install rebug 4.21 rex and then flip back to dex.

the zip file is passworded ? a password would be great.
