May 20, 2011 // 12:11 pm - Similar to Brink for PS3, LA Noire now has a retail update patch v1.01 built with Sony's 3.5 SDK that allows users to run the PlayStation 3 game on PS3 Custom Firmware including Kmeaw and Rebug CFW via MultiMAN.

Download: LA Noire (BLES-00933) PS3 Patch Update / LA Noire (BLES-00933) PS3 Patch Update (Mirror) / LA Noire (BLES-00933) PS3 Patch Update (Mirror #2) / LA Noire (BLES-00933) PS3 Patch Update (Mirror #3) / LA Noire (BLES-00933) PS3 Patch Update (Mirror #4) / LA Noire (BLES-00933) PS3 Patch Update (Mirror #5) / L.A. Noire PKG FIX 3.41 EUR+USA by zhuge

Finally, some notes on getting the title to run on PS3 Custom Firmware are below, as follows:

The patch was designed for the EUR version of the game. Use the param.sfo to change the USA version before installing the patch.

How to:

  • Change the PARAM.sfo of LA Noire to BLES00933 instead of that orginal BLUS.
  • Change the PARAM.sfo of LA Noire required fw to 3.55 (or let MM do it).
  • Save the file.
  • Overwrite the original param.sfo with the one provided.
  • Install the pkg update patch.
  • Run LA Noire on multiman! Then play the game.
  • Tested on 3.55 Kmeaw's from internal, the game can be started discless.

Note: If your PS3 controller isn't working after you get to play, exit game and run it without sel+x on multiman. Select+x is only needed for it to install. Now your controller should work.

By patching the PARAM.SFO from BLUS to BLES, does it mean that the save and game data will also turn EUR?

So, supposing that a cfw3.60 comes out and we can all buy psn stuff back again, will the US DLC from LA Noire be recognized on this patched game, or i'll have to buy the EUR one? That's my biggest concern. =/

Long story short: Did this US game become EUR, or it's just a cover up so that the patch can be installed over it?

Sorry for my bad english. I'm portuguese. =P

Yeah, The game should be around 22-23 GBs. I'm guessing the Param.sfo is the problem here.

3. La Noire shows up in multiMAN, but when I go to game options it doesn't show the cover and the title is just BLUS-305, doesn't find any updates.
4. Intalled the us patch pkg.
5. Loaded the game and let MM change the param to 3.55.
6. XMB still shows "corrupt data" when trying to start -> an error occured during startup operation. App_home/PS3_GAME/ shows LA Noire correctly but nothing happens when I press X. LA noire DLC is displayed at the Game Data Utility.


Did you download the game?

Yes, you should have done that in the start

Try this:
1. Delete all the LA Noire data installed on your ps3! (dev_hdd0/game/BLUS30554)
2. Put the original Param.sfo file in the "BLUS30554" Folder
3. Let multiMAN find updates for the game (Game options) and then install the updates like you normally would from "Install Package files".

Thank you, but it ain't helping me. Still doesn't work. I get the same corrupt data icon where the game icon should be. If I go to the "app_home\ps3_game" the music starts playing and the background changes to LA Noire but nothing happens when I press X...

So many people are having issues with this! Here's the fixed PARAM.SFO and the patch.pkg (This is for CFW 3.55 any version)

Put both files on a USB stick. Replace the PARAM.SFO with the one from the file, using MM File Manager

Install the .pkg file. Play the bloody game
