    Sports Champion PS3 Black Screen help?

    I can't get my copy of Sports Champion to boot.. Original Disc w/3.55 Spoof or Internal Drive Patched.

    After showing the Move intro, it black screens. I've tried launching the original disc with the 3.55 Spoof using both Hermes and PL3, and without the spoofs but patched to 3.41. I'm assuming it's the backup manager I'm using, but which one should I use?

    On second thought I think it may be the payload I'm using, considering that it won't even boot from the Original Disc.

    I got Sports Champions for x-mas in the Move bundle. Tried loading it up via PSFreedom PL3 w/3.5 spoof and had the same black screen. I then tried Hermes V4, and I was getting an error code. I tried several different backup managers and had no luck. I was able to obtain a copy of the EUR Sports Champion and loaded it on my External HDD with PL3 w/3.5 spoof and it works flawlessly.

    I'm thinking maybe Sony changed something on newer shipped Sports Champions?

    Its a possibility, best bet if someone were to grab it from the new disk, and give it a quick compare with that of the older disc to see if it was changed - a quick sha1sum of the files would do the trick.
