How to Get Call of Duty: Black Ops Working with PS3 JailBreak

Sponsored Links
225w ago - Below is a guide I wrote on PSX-Scene (linked above) and here on PS3News how to get Call of Duty: Black Ops working with PS3 JailBreak on PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.41.

Today a copy of Black Ops arrived "in the usual places" and it required 3.50 to play.

JonahUK pointed out that when the EBOOT.BIN was viewed with a hex editor it showed it was compiled with the 3.40 SDK meaning it was debug update time!!!

I extracted the EBOOT.BIN file and PRAM.SFO from the 1.02 debug update modified them and made a pack here: CODBO.rar / Mirror #1 / Mirror #2 / Mirror #3 / Mirror #4 / Mirror #5 / Mirror #6 / Mirror #7 / New Pack With All SFO Regions / New Pack With All SFO Regions #2 / New Pack With All SFO Regions #3 / Black Ops Pack 1.3

Here is a tutorial to get the game working:

(make sure you backup all your files first in case you do something wrong)

Step 1: Download the files and go to where you put your game and edit your pram.sfo to say 3.40 with PS3SFOEdit.





Step 2: Update the game to 1.02 using the retail update for your region.

Step 3: After your update has finished, open comgenie or ftp and go to:

dev_hdd0/GAME/"Blackops"/PS3_GAME and put the eboot in the pack here

To clarify, in other words: dev_hdd0/GAME/"Blackops"(BLxxxxx)/USRDIR and put the eboot in the pack here

Step 4: Go to dev_hdd0/GAME/"Blackops"/PS3_GAME/USRDIR

Now if you have the BLES01032 version just use the SFO.PRAM file inc in my pack and place it in that directory overwriting the old one.

If you have another version of the game use PS3SFOEdit to edit your sfo to say 3.40 in advanced edit. SAVE IT then replace it.

To clarify, in other words: go to dev_hdd0/GAME/"Blackops"(BLxxxxxx)/ and copy the sfo.pram file to your pc.

To edit the sfo file use the sfoeditor i've inc in my pack click load and choose your PRAM.SFO file.

Click Advanced Edit where it says 3.5000 change this to say 3.4000 and press ok. press save and save it to the desktop or somewhere you will be able to see it easy. now either put it on a usb drive and copy it back with comgenie or ftp it back to the folder it came from.

Step 5: Double check everything, Then play.

The next part comes from hunter128 from here and seems to only apply if you have run the game previously and been prompted to update.

After you install the pkg launch a FTP server and go to /dev_hdd0/mms/db/ and search a file called metadata_db_hdd open it in a hex editor and search 3.50, and change to 3.41


Big thanks to teh reaper for testing this and confirming it working on external and internal HDD.

Also it seems that multiplayer freezes at the moment, but campaign and zombies works fine!

Update: To get MP working you can try This Method by netkas or use This Alternate Method by MexN00B.

This is the way that works atm I'm sure there will probably be a simpler way soon.

I read ALL of the posts in this thread. It's not slow and laggy, it doesn't load. I left it on for over 30 minutes and it's still on the black screen.

if people read the thread and my posts youd know SLOW AND LAGGY IS BECAUSE OF THE PAYLOAD.

I had that mate, and I ended up messing too much and couldn't get the game working at all!!

make sure you try this step;

6- FTP into the installed game update folder (dev_hdd0/game/BLES01031)
and go into the folder "USRDIR" then copy the folders found inside only,
don't copy the other files, just the folders (english & french) in my case.
Copy them to your PC, then delete the game update folder from PS3.

7- FTP and copy the folders from your PC into the
main game folder\PS3_GAME\USRDIR\
to merge them with the folders of the same names.

sounds like wrong patch files used or you put them in wrong location. I have the right 3 files to replace, but now that psn is down I guess no reason to up these... unless anyone wants to try them.

Alright well, this is driving me crazy. First off, i have two folders.

One is the update folder in dev_hdd0/game/BLUS30591, and the other is the actual game files in dev_hdd0/game/LAUN12345/BLUS30591.

-Both param.sfo's are the same, patched.
-I put your patched EBOOT.BIN/t5_ps3f.self/t5mp_ps3f.self in the update folder.
-Im using hermes-psn-eco-xoeo-cyberskunk-evilsperm-hex_final on teensy 2.0

The game starts just fine, but when i click multiplayer, it just gos to black screen and freezes. I can actually access my xmb menu from there, but it is slow and laggy.

Another poster here mentioned this problem, too.. so what's wrong? >_>

craig, relax, its just a game and very similar to previous CODs I tell you this because I did get online before today and played the game and its just okay nothing spectacular about it, just okay. Also dont worry too much, I bet you we will get a new payload today or tomorrow or maybe by week end with a workaround to get into psn again.

Just wait a little and play some other stuff mean while. If you are a COD junky and dont want to lose your jailbreak go ahead and buy a new ps3 to play COD. We are playing the mouse and cat game, sony patches we get a workaround then that workaround get patched and we look for another one.
