    It is now possible to play PS3 games past the FW 3.41 requirement (Example GT, requires FW 3.5) on FW 3.41. This requires a modified EBOOT. You can make your own by the following (Tutorial by Veritas of PSX-SCENE)

    Quote:



    nyway, this guide requires you to have some knowledge of how the SELF and ELF file formats are laid out. I don’t have a quick tool to do this for me, but it takes maybe 5 minutes of my time to do it by hand.

    1. Open EBOOT.BIN in a hex editor of your preference.
    2. In EBOOT.BIN, look at the SELF control info, if you see anything resembling the game titleid, it’s an NPDRM SELF and this guide won’t work, give up.
    3. Use readself on EBOOT.BIN to get information about the encrypted metadata sections.
    4. unself EBOOT.BIN eboot.elf
    5. Open eboot.elf in a hex editor of your preference.
    6. In eboot.elf, go to every encrypted metadata section (now decrypted), copy its data, and replace the encrypted data in EBOOT.BIN.
    7. In EBOOT.BIN, change SELF header to indicate it’s FSELF.
    8. In EBOOT.BIN, change SELF section headers that are marked as encrypted to say they are not encrypted.
    9. If the game is a newer SDK version (like GT5, which is 3.50), in EBOOT.BIN, find the .sys_proc_param segment and change the SDK version to something earlier, such as 3.41. This will probably cause crashes in games that actually use newer SDK features that are not available in earlier SDK versions.
    10. Save EBOOT.BIN
    11. Cross fingers, run game, hope it works.

    No, you cant post the eboot, you better remove the source if it's got a download limit. Those files are produced using the sony SDK thus illegal.
    Plus I already posted this in the PS3 thread, but I can't find it.

    Dude, you can't say where to go to get the files. Removing the link but keeping the name of the website is still against the rules.

    Six years....

    And Sony gets another massive kick in the nuts.

    GT5 received a lukewarm reception in the North America, getting outsold by DKCR in its first month of sales. From what I understand the franchise is more popular in Europe, but then again, so is hacking and piracy.

    Hey Sony, if you were planning on making any revenues from this game you can forget it.

    Six f***ing years...

    Seriously, the boot.bin may not be the entire game, but it's a main portion of it... thus still illegal by copyright laws.

    Sph73, Not all people download the game, this was meant for people who brought it, and want to play it on 3.41 with all their homebrew still there. This made be bad, but also good at the same time

    CanonBeat: gran turismo 5 is what it is. It was a highly anticipated Ps3 racing game that has not worked on 3.41 firmware until know
