Thread: RFOM Exploit possible?
when i remove the disc in F1 (game paused) the default sony error type screen comes up claiming that the disc has been removed - please re-insert, so i can't swap
ps3 pal 1.6
any ideas? anonymous666 - how did you get it to work?
heres something to chew on
Boot japanese RR7, go to time trial, select a track, select a car, then when you see "begin time trial", take out the disk and insert a dual-layer dvd with the contents of the bdrom RR7 disk burned to it, then press "begin time trial", the track will load and you can race, exit and generally just play the game as normal (from the backup disk!), might be useful if you have 2 ps3's and one copy of rr7, or if you want to try modifying data on the disk to trick the ps3 into booting said data.
Only problem with this method is the music doesn't work when you're playing off the backup, since the music is saved to the bdrom as an audio track i assume.
Here is the similar method for F1 (from the other thread by KroKis, which is now removed as we don't need two threads on the same topic):
Formula 1 EU swap BUG
Yes, this is another SWAP bug for update firmware bypass. This is with a Formula 1 EUROPE PAL version:
1-Put your F1 pal a go to MULTIPLAYER menu.
2- In multiplayer menu press "back" ("X" on my sixaxis)
3-When game answer for confirm back to F1 main menu, eject F1 to any game.
4-Confirm (O) exit of multiplayer game and your swaped game now work.
Confirmed PS3 JAP, firm 1.7 and F1 PAL Spain
Guys please use THIS THREAD ONLY for all feedback on PS3 Firmware Update Bypass Methods. We don't need multiple threads on each one... any posts on this topic outside this thread will be removed. I don't want to have to check 10 threads to read the latest updates... I want them all right in this ongoing thread. Thanks!
for the record this is on 1.70fm, using japanese rr7 original, and usa rr7 backup.
ok just tried F1 and like rfom - using pal versions of the games, on a pal ps3 fw1.6 - nethier will swap boot a ps2 ntsc disc - it's the only game i have to try that shouldn't work legally... (and, of course, fw 1.6 supports all ps3 games)
but can anyone confirm - do region codes exist on ps3 games? i didn't think so, and anonymous666 is the only person to suggest otherwise, any thoughts?
I don't believe they do... same with PSP, disc region coding for PS3 is for movies only. If anyone has proof otherwise, feel free to elaborate.
