For those who are on 3.15 or lower. Has anyone had any success in launching some of the newer games on your firmware.. ie. CastleVania required 3.41 and Enslaved required 3.40 in my case: Castlevania on Firm 3.15
From XMB as soon as you click to run the game. it says this game required update 3.41 - do you wish to update now.. if you don't it kicks you back to dash. The games has not even tried to load at this point.
Editing SFO changing Version from 3.400 to 3.1500 Now Allows the game to boot, but after a minute you are faced with error (80010019) and it kicks you back to the dash.
This is exactly the same case with Medal of honour, except it requires 3.42 to play and is freaking out all the 3.41 users. However as far as i can see, there is no new protection that sony did to block us, they simply raised the required firmware version. since there would have been no developmental features added between 3.41 and 3.42, I suspect the somewhere in the code of the software it's doing the firmware check. So I guess we either patch the software or find a way to trick out the system using jaicrb's usb firmware loader? I have no patch/crack experience, tried searching for 3.4 in hex editor and randomly changing them to 3.1's but that likely didn't do anything more than corrupt my eboot more.. lol.
