Unfortunately users who do pre-order the title will have to wait until the official release date of September 17th to play it, unless a PS3 scene release group finds a way to hack or unlock the video game of course. Current reports indicate, as expected, the GTAV eboot.bin and edat.bin are heavily encrypted though.
Those who attempt to run Grand Theft Auto V at the moment are currently receiving a PS3 8002951E error as pictured here.
Error 80010009 (from Miralatijeras CFW with the RIF license bypass instead of the renew license error) is easily fixed with Aldostools' bruteforce app (ps3tools.zip / ps3tools update), as bolded in part of the eboot fix bat file that fixes that error below:
According to CVG (computerandvideogames.com/348161/psn-gets-new-pre-load-option-for-upcoming-games/) Sony has had this pre-order functionality in place for over a year now stating on 5/17/2012 the following: "Sony has added a new pre-loading function to the PlayStation Store that'll let you download games early that'll be unlocked on launch date."
From an0nym0us: Just 1 small edat and rather large rpf files. For most of you save your excitement about those RPF files, there is a new format. Soooooo, unless you can code, you will be sitting on the sidelines for some time.
From Three-Socks: Its been confirmed now that the RIF's that are generated when you download the game from PSN store are dummy files. This is the only protection you need really. Without the RIFS the ps3 can't decrypt the EBOOT.BIN and the edat files need to run the game.
So I guess this means come release day you will have to download an activation file from the psn store (the real rifs) before the game can run. Well they haven't broken the trend it seems. Its once again just one edat RPF file (common.rpf) and the rest of the RPFs are without the DRM but encrypted by R* of course. RPF7 is what it says in the header.
I can see the RPF's being decrypted pretty easily once the game is out. There are some people out there that will do anything to be the first to open up GTA to modding. What I hope for is that rockstar has a really good method for stopping modified online files from running. I would be fine if after a good couple of months someone has reversed the new script format and we could create our own scripts for singleplayer only but we couldn't touch online.
BS GTA V Patch: GTAV-PATCH-REBUG-VIRUS-INFECTED.pkg
launch MultiManager and input QA Flag code
launch GTA V
at Main Screen input Contra code
success - everything working
From xxmcvapourxx: As we can't decrypt the eboot or get rap files, here is the klicense i got from gta5. The rest is up to you lot to finish off: A97E2BF3B70B2D13B67E0F755587784D
However, another user obtained 8061009078630020F86100C8C0210070 via Aldostools PS3 Tools Bruteforce EBOOT 1.3, who states: This tool is more an EXPERIMENT than a real key finder... a 128bit key is expected to take milleniums to bruteforce it, but if you are extremely LUCKY you could find a rifkey using this method. Anyway, I'm sharing this because a friend asked me to make it to have some fun.
From Aldostools: That 8061009078630020F86100C8C0210070 has been in the dev_klic.txt for few days... it was found and reported to the server by an anonymous source using my Bruteforce EDAT tool.... so obviously it is not the rifkey. It is more likely to be a dev_klic from some edat (maybe the Atomic Blimp DLC or who knows what).
Rockstar clarify: leaks about GTA V are all fake, release date is the same
A lot of GTA V information has been leaked from yesterday till now with no comment from Rockstar, as every one on the internet knows that the game appeared to download on PSN by mistake and many people downloaded it and start posting files and screens on the internet, also i was surprised a couple minutes ago i discovered that the game has been uploaded to the torrent websites!!!
Rockstar finally commented about it and clarified that every thing leaked is totally fake:
“As we get closer and closer to game launch, there will be lots of people around the internet posting supposed leaked information about the game. Please do not proliferate such things here as we certainly don’t want any misinformation spread from things that are fake nor do we want spoilers spread regarding anything that might be true.”
Also many people worried that the company might approached the release date because of the Pre-Load version, The company has also denied that:
“Anyone engaging in such discussion here at the Rockstar Newswire before September 17th will have commenting privileges revoked until well after the game’s release. Thank you for understanding, Rockstar Games.”
