November 21, 2011 // 5:37 pm - Today Chinese PlayStation 3 developer chnps3hax has made available a 3.55 and 3.41 CFW fix for The House of the Dead: Overkill on PS3 Custom Firmware alongside a brief guide for the EBOOT Mod below.

Download: The House of the Dead: Overkill PS3 CFW Fix / The House of the Dead: Overkill PS3 CFW 3.55 Fix / PS3 3.55 EBOOT.BIN and PARAM.SFO (Mirror) / The House of the Dead: Overkill PS3 CFW 3.41 Fix / PS3 3.41 EBOOT.BIN and PARAM.SFO (Mirror) / The House of the Dead: Overkill PS3 (EUR) CFW Fix

The House of the Dead: Overkill PS3 Custom Firmware fix is intended to be used with the The_House_Of_The_Dead_Overkill_USA_PS3-CLANDESTiNE (BLUS30774) PS3 scene release, however, some users report that using PlayStation Move may cause it to freeze.

Note: The game will work with the EUR version by renaming the "uk" folder in "PS3_GAME/USRDIR/uk" to "us" but some images and text are missing though. A European version fix is available HERE courtesy of BauerIvan.

The House of the Dead: Overkill PS3 CFW Tutorial:

1) Delete the UPDATE folder of the game (optional).
2) Place the Eboot.bin file in the USRDIR folder of the game.
3) Run it on multiMAN and it should work.

PS3 Version 3.41 was tested playable House of the Dead - drive out the U.S. version. Taking the time to study the game cracked under 3.6 above, in fact, people just want to say PS3 crack get the same strength, eboot has been decrypted elf, just above 3.41 with make_fself made a use of theory.

355R system is also tested, and detailed test report:

Thanks to my good friend violentcris for sending me the news and to ps3de for also reporting it.

This has been confirmed working by ragnarok0929, to quote roughly translated:

Confirmed the PS3 version of The House of the Dead: Overkill the crack is valid!

  • Link:
  • Test Environment: 3.55.2 up0.4 REBUG, MM2.09.02 Chinese version, the U.S. version of "House of the Dead: Ruthless" (original required 3.70!!!)
  • Built-in (external) lead stress-free operation, has been tested for 10 minutes into the game! No guidance is not to be tried!
  • I heard this game is the hacker break, too much to force the amount of cracking technology is not that we are worse than others!


1. Delete the UPDATE folder within the game (without leaving the seeds removed)
2. Corresponding crack download package, replace the folder PS3_GAME under the SFO documents and PS3_GAME/USRDIR under EBOOT.BIN file (remember to modify a good name, the original backup file note!)
3. Incoming internal or external
4. MM load operation guide

PS: The game has more than 1,300 small files, it is recommended to run the built games to support MOVE, of course, can also play regular handle! Games support 3D, you know.

Does anybody know if there is a fix for the game "The House of Dead" for PS3 on FW 3.41 that works also when using the move controller?

I tried the both the BLES and BLUS Versions of this game with the related fixes but the game works only when you play with the gamepad but not when you want to play with the move controller.

I would appreciate your help.

Thanks in advance.

personally tested the cladenstine version and only the first time I managed to play 1st level with move and everything worked flawlessly... after the first time ,all the other times the game freezes when calibrating the move... weird huh?

all this incident reminded me when socom 4 had exactly the same issue... only thing left to do now is just look forward for the cfw makers to release an update or something on those move issues.

To HeyManHRU, Thanks for suggestions.

Joining a started game with a move controller ---> NOK

Joining a started game, switching off the move before pressing "Move" button, then re-start it -> NOK too...

As somebody says, it may come from my OFW 3.41. It also can be related to the use of a US release on a EUR PS3.

I'll keep you in touch.

I wonder if problems are linked to the cfw version as I note that at least one person having problems is using 3.41. I'm using 3.55 kmeaw and everything works fine.

Try turning on the Move controller while the game is running (not before). If that doesn't work, turn off the move controller and turn it back on.

If someone try this "method", please report back on whether it's (move controller) working or not.

Thanks for the fix ! Works perfect on my 3.41 with JailBreak (USA version)... but only with controller...

I tried several way to pass through the "calibration screen freeze" with the MOVE (with/without BD, after started playing with sixaxis, trying to calibrate the fastest I can...), but I did not succeed yet. Any workaround welcome

Maybe start from scratch ? I was playing the game with my boy yesterday and we got up to level 5 with the Move controllers and not a hitch. Don't give up
