November 20, 2010 // 10:09 am - Today Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo 5 is making its rounds on the Internet by release group DComics, while PS3 JailBreak users are working on how to get it running without updating the PlayStation 3 console to 3.50 Firmware as required by the title.

The full US release name is Gran.Turismo.5.PS3-DComics and the game weighs in at 19.4GB (20,882,698,502 bytes) in size unpacked for those wondering (packed at 19515.8MB), with the leaked European version coming in at 13.72GB in size.

According to the NFO File, the following important note states: "To play the game you need to spoof your fw as 3.5 with one of the payloads available in net."

There is also now another scene release named Gran.Turismo.5.EUR.JB.PS3-PEMA in which the NFO File states the following: "Spoofed firmware 3.5 required" and under Install Notes: "Unrar files and copy gamedir dir to external harddrive or use some PS3 FTP server. Files must be placed in the GAMEZ folder."

Although there have been a few reports of it working they are unconfirmed thus far, with most currently reporting getting a black screen or error 80028F08 that the data is corrupted when editing the PARAM.SFO file and using various PS3 payloads and Open Managers applications.

The US release version (BCUS-98114) was compiled with PS3 SDK 3.50 while the Euro leaked version (BCES-00569) of the game was compiled with PS3 SDK version 3.30, however, many users believe until a Debug Patch Update surfaces (as opposed to a 403/404 error) PS3 JailBreak users may have to hold off playing it.

As always, we'll update this article when a JailBroken PS3 GT5 fix or work-around arrives.

How do you copy from the 3.50 console if you didn't jailbreak the 3.50 console? That is the key!! And if that was possible to jailbreak the 3.50 to do that, you would not be asking these questions and we won't be answering them.

i also got another idea... this one is a long shot but what happens if you again have two consoles one with 3.50 and one with 3.41. install the game onto the 3.50 ps3 and copy that entire 3.50 intall dir onto your 3.41ps3.. then edit the pram file on the install file you copied... I think its possible to be the solution. I again cannot try it not that rich to own 2 ps3.

Yeah, let alone the whole issue of still how to decrypt the eboot, plus even if it was 100% decrypted, it still may not run without being modified!

And how you want to FTP the files from 3.50 ? You need a downgrader, which just a small group of people here own, because it's just working with the original PSJailbreak.

This might sound weird and all but why dosent somebody with two ps3 consoles one with 3.41 and 3.50 copy the eboots from the 3.50 console to the 3.41. cause from what i understand the games got updates its just updates via the net in game. But the games still installs online. Use ComgenieAwesomeFilemanager And find the updates on the ps3. copy it onto a flash then copy it over to the 3.41 hdd.. i'ss a rough try but could work... i don't own two consoles so i cannot do it.
