Finally from alphaomega comes what may be a method which allows Sonic Generations and other titles to work, as follows:

1. Install a game demo that works on 3.55 from .pkg file (Resistance 3, Driver San Francisco, many many more) and install it.

2. With FTP, go to the GAME folder where all .pkgs get installed to (sort by date it will be the newest).

3. Copy the param.sfo and eboot.bin to the folder of the full game...

If its Sonic.. WIN.. Game works (Mount in Multiman and run from APP_HOME/PS3_GAME/)

Probably won't be able to save with any game where this method works, unless of course the demo allows you to save.

Wait a second ... this is a brand new game but the demo came out pre 3.55 or is the demo signed with the PSN NPD keys and they were able to break it that way ... ?

If you write an updated guide dragonsan we can add it to the first post.

Below is one that may be of use to some from Dzho: psx-scene.com/forums/content/tutorial-1653/


Step 1. Download all files from here: Demo in PKG + Param.sfo + Eboot.bin

Step 2. Copy Sonic generation by ps3gunz.pkg to root of usb key and install it with install package


Step 3. Launch multiMan


Step 4. Go to manager file in HDD1/game/NPEB90337 within multiMan


Step 5. Delete Param.sfo and USRDIR


Step 6. On the right side go to your file of full Game Sonic Generation BLES01236


Step 7. Copy USRDIR of full Sonic without the eboot and Trophies Folder


Step 8. Copy param sfo from archive to HDD1/game/NPEB90337


Step 9. Copy eboot from archive to HDD1/game/NPEB90337/USRDIR


Step 10. Come back to XMB and launch demo icon

I think the main post is misleading, you have to install the demo first, then copy all the full game files into the demos folder, then patch it, and you can start the game from xmb.

That was also my first thought, probably true since the game isn't working properly. Maybe someone will fully fix it soon similar to the way Uncharted 3 was fixed.

Quick guess - is it a swap of full game EBOOT with demo one?
