September 20, 2010 // 6:28 pm - According to PSGroove (linked above) and DJLO at PSX-Scene, F1 2010 is the first PS3 Game to require updating to PlayStation 3 Firmware version 3.42 which blocks both PSJailBreak and the PS3 Proxy Methods.

I was on IRC and the news broke, apparently it requires you to update and if you cancel, it takes you back to the PS3 XMB. The war has just began and Sony made the first move: User 0 vs Sony 1.

For those curious about other PS3 game compatibility with PSJailBreak, PSGroove and PSFreedom be sure to check out the PS3 JailBreak Game Compatibility List and add to it if possible.

To quote: "If you ignore the game's warnings, it throws you back to the XMB. Technically this should just require some editing to the PARAM.SFO's version, in order to get the game to boot on 3.41. However, time will tell."

F1 2010 is the First PS3 Game to Require 3.42 Firmware?

ok, confirm works with driving force gt, don't save automatically. You create the save then in options deselect autosave and works well... the game is arcade style also in sim mode

:D Would be cool if they add it to the next update with (c) hacked2123 .

But Okay, think Sony will try other methods first .

It does not works with internal HDDtoo. Tried with ext HDD 1st, yet stuck at loading, transfered into int HDD and installed, after that got error " no controller detected" .

I downloaded from forum that user claim it works!, i believe those user claimed must replied that threat when they installed the game... So =(

Good luck and have fun playing

Can you actually play the game? Because everyone can boot it, but gets stuck after the opening credits.

Also tried all the options, none working. Maybe this will help: Dirt 2 has the same problem, only not when starting the game, but when reconnecting after a lost controller connection. (I turned the auto-off mode on for the controller after 10 min of non-usage).

Both are codemasters (race)games.
