wb! all games that worked on 3.41 works on 3.55 (if it hasn't been modified in anyway)
games that were patched (gt5, sly collection) need there unmodified eboot to run.
oh lovely. well i'm not going to update as i have no laser and i want to play blackops
or is there anybody that can confirm that an unmodded blackops will run on 3.55 without a disc lol.
Took the plunge and it feels so good! Lol. Anyhow, updated my 160gb slim using the pup provided from this thread and all is runnin smoothly. Games work great, no noticeable bugs that I haven't seen before (ie, the ps3 freezing if you try to sign in while blackops is loading from hdd).
I updated straight from 3.41 to kmeaw 3.55 from external drive with no hiccups. Online and updating GT5 as I type. Thanks again PS3 scene, you never let me down!
As soon as my GT5 update finishes i'll try for ya.
after much trial and error, finally success
After many hours I have finally gotten Heavy Rain to load using kmeaw's modification of Wutangrza's cfw.
General information: I have the Heavy Rain files in the dev_hdd0\GAMES\HeavyRain folder on my 40GB CECHG01 system (FAT, 256MB NAND).
1. Install OFW 3.55 (downloadable at Sony's website) either by updating or by recovery mode.
QUICK TIP for USB Firmware installation: To install firmware from a flash drive, the firmware must be labeled "PS3UPDAT.pup" and it must be in \PS3\UPDATE\ directory.
QUICK TIP for Recovery mode: To enter recovery mode, hold down the power button until the system actually turns off again. Then hold the power button again until you hear two beeps.
2. Install kmeaw's modified firmware via recovery mode.
3. Install kmeaw's lv2-v2 package via XMB package installer (under the Game section)
4. Install the FIX_PERMISSIONS_Waninkoko_CFW_3.55.pkg via XMB package installer. Yes, I realize it says Waninkoko and not Wutangrza, but believe me it works.
5. Install backup manager of choice via XMB package installer.
PLAYING (via XMB, direct boot as of yet untested)
0. Boot up PS3
1. Load game via backup loader to XMB. In MultiMan, it asks you if you want to load directly, so confirm "No". I haven't used any other loaders to see how they work.
2. Run "lv2 patcher" in your Game menu. It will show up as a white screen with instructions to press X to exit. Do so.
NOTE: You only have to do this ONCE every time you boot up your PS3.
3. Run "Fix file permissions for LUAN12345" in the Game menu. It will eventually bring you back to XMB.
NOTE: I have had to re-run this Fix file before I load my game every time. After I've exited the game, I will get a hanging black screen if I don't re-fix before booting the game.
4. Start up your game via XMB. It will appear as a normal game disk if it's been loaded properly with MultiMan (or other BM's I would assume).
I will try to answer any questions that come up, but since this thread moves so quickly I might have trouble seeing them. Good luck!
What is the BM Enabler LV2 V2 PKG. This is new for me, i just wake up.
just ignore the instructions to place in the xmb. run it through a backup manager. works fine for me using Gaia on 3.55 kmeaw.
just tried blackops usin the discless option in Gaia on my slim. still hangs. sorry.
well if it hanged before, could be a different problem. meh! i might just update - for no reason.
does the 3.55 downgrader work? also wasn't there a problem with large nand ps3s?
also i don't have to install geohots pup over this one? just ofw then this one?
I had 3.41 official firmware. I upgraded to OCFW 3.55 CFW 3.55 Kmaew
Run lv2.pkg and then multiman/rogero manager. All backups still at black screen after i run them. I have uploaded it by FTP using blackbox 1.2 Why?
Thanks and sorry for my bad english.
same issue here. i really don't know what do i have to other way...
looks like i'm not updating tonight meh, woulda been fun - maybe.
my network is hosed due to storms so i need more cables and ra ra
SUPER LAME. ps3 is semi decommissioned anyways.
