210w ago - Today Portal 2 has been confirmed as the first PS3 3.60 Firmware encrypted game, however, as it spreads on torrent sites PlayStation 3 hackers are already examining potential work-arounds to get the game running for PS3 Custom Firmware users.

To quote: We all knew this day would be coming, just like before with the v3.50!

Yep, all the rumors were right! -- Portal 2 would be the first game that was pressed using the currently unreleased APP v3.60 keys!

If you are looking to enjoy the sequel to the acclaimed Valve's puzzle-action hybrid, the Portal 2, then you need to learn to setup your own portal, because playing it on a 3.55 CFW console right now is not possible.

You are looking at different sets of method being tested such as the famous PARAM.SFO editing, EBOOT decrypting, it's just useless without the 3.60 keys. To say that the upcoming L.A. Noire is on the same ride will be my heartbreaking May moment.

So, I hope someone will find the solution for this or just roll on the 3.60 CFW already! But remember to eat some cheese with all that wine!

Something always unfolds in the scene, to get you back into the 'gaming'!

well that it certainly is. the guy who messed with the eboot appearently got the game to install the data but it wouldn't play due to needing the update to 3.60 to run. guess we'll have to be very patient and wait for someone to actually crack the 3.60 and put it up for the public and not just use it for themselves. it's not like there aren't other games that can be played in the meantime

i wish i knew how to do stuff like this so that i could give it a shot but sadly i can not...

PS3 Portal 2 Eboot Fix to Run on CFW 3.55

I have been working on getting Portal 2 to work on CFW 3.55 since their has been NO release of a newer CFW.

THIS IS ONLY FOR USA BLUS-30732
Because I do not have a EUR/JAP Copy of the game

Download Here Eboot.Bin

Its a Work in Progress and I need some testers for the Final Product.
If it chokes on Installing Game try using Rebug DEX Selector.

Well, we all know about this, is amazing to see how the ps3 is always a challenge for the hackers, maybe this Will open the road for a 3.60 cfw.
