November 15, 2010 // 10:59 pm - Today [C*] posted a guide on PSX-Scene with the help of plamenz on how to get Assassin's Creed Brotherhood working on PS3 JailBreak with PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.41.

For those already with the video game, here it is as follows: DO NOT SIGN ONTO PSN WITH THE BLES VERSION OF THIS GAME. IT ISN'T OUT UNTIL FRIDAY!


I have tested it on external with Hermes v4 with PSN, with disc inside. My Gaia manager didn't have the patch to 3.41 option, but I edited the game's .sfo anyway.

1. Install patch : EP0001-BLES00909_00-AC2TITLEUPDATE01-A0101-V0100-PE.pkg
2. Make empty folder ASSASSIN_ISO in USER DIR at BLES00909
3. Start Open Manager 2.1 +L2 patch to 3.41 ([C*] says: Or just edit the game's .sfo to 3.41)
4. Put some BD game
5. Start from BD icon
6. Wait for some mandatory install
7. Play the game and njoy

Tested 250GB Pal PL3+PSN iLLNESS. To be clear the folder has to be made in the folder of the game dump, not the update folder.

Link to the patch: (BLES00909 only)

Props to plamenz.

Update: An alternate US version (BLUS30537) guide by robg1983 is now posted HERE.

Guys for those of you using the US version (BLUS30537) the game can be backed up both internal and external hard drives. I did not use the patched update version, I used the retail one (

After installing the update using Hermes4-psn-3.50 spoof, I unpacked the game with open Manager 2.1 (Do not use Gaia to unpack. Game will not work for some reason) after OM2.1 finishes backing up the game. You need to start the game with Gaia manager 1.03.1 (game will not show when you insert a BR disk inside if using OM2.1 again not sure why).

I did not patch the PARAM.SFO (from 3.50 to 3.41) at 1st just to see if the game works, it did but Gaia keeps asking to patch the file every time I start the game so I ended up patching it. Also I didn't ad ASSASSIN_ISO file in the backup game external (/dev_usb/GAMEZ/BLUS-30537/PS3_GAME/USRDIR) or internal (/dev_hdd0/game/xxxxxxx/GAMEZ/BLUS-30537/PS3_GAME/USRDIR) Started the game, installed some files and I was playing in no time.

1. Install retail update 1.01 (
2. Backup game using Open Manager 2.1 to internal or external (Do not use Gaia)
3. Start the game using Gaia 1.03.1 (Open Manager will not work) my case anyway
4. Insert any original BR game disk
5. Start game
6. Wait for files to install
5. Play and enjoy

Hope this helps some out there. Sure it would've saved me alot of time before I figured it all out.

I've heard of this too.. can someone who got the game running please post, and state which PKG they used and internal/external HDD? And which manager? Because so far it's mainly people that have failed that are posting. Thanks.

I really thought I had lost my ps3 for about 10 mins.

Has anyone had the "disc dirty or damaged" message when trying to play this as instructed in the first page of the post?

Hey I had the exact problem as you... I think I posted it a few pages back or on another thread. My blu ray drive is dead so when I loaded the game it too had no sound after the intro and quiting the game gave me those spinning arrows for all icons on the XMB...

I got scared aswell as restarting the PS3 did nothing, but yeh I too put the PS3 in recovery mode and chose '4: Rebuild Database' which takes like 10 seconds and that seemed to solve the problem... every time I tried to get the game to work but failing as the sound still wouldnt work, I would get that XMB problem again if I quit the game or shut off the PS3 and had to go through recovery mode every time.

Thanks for letting us know, as I thought I was the only one getting that problem as nobody else had it until I read this.

A word of warning... I followed all the steps detailed but when i tried to start it via bd, it gets to the "press start" screen then said that the disc you are using may been damaged or dirty. Then I tried it disc less which made the game play fine but no sound. The big trouble started when I tried to exit the game.

It went back to the xmb then crashed as it appeared to try and bring up the disc icon, although there was no disc in the drive. I booted the ps3 back up and it would not display most of the icons, just the spinny loading icons. I tried to format the hdd but every time I tried it crashed on 0%.

By this time I was all worked up thinking that my ps3 was bricked, and that this may be sony's doing, as I had been playing backups online. To cut a already long story short I just used the secret menu you access by holding the power on button, and restored the system and it was alright in the end. The moral of the story is DON'T TRY TO PLAY ASSASSINS CREED BROTHERHOOD WITHOUT A BD IN THE DRIVE.
