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: 

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