October 17, 2010 // 6:40 pm - Previously it was reported that Medal Of Honor PS3 required Firmware 3.42 to run, but below is a video and guide on getting the video game working on PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.41 with Open Manager version 2.1 posted at (linked above) and

Download: OM 2.1 File Pack (Note: Pack is EU, for US see HERE) / OM v2.1 / OM v2.1A / OM v2.1A (English)

Other PS3 titles that previously required PS3 Firmware 3.42 are also being reported as now working using the same method (at least until Sony changes the NPDRM EBOOT keys) as well, including John Daly's Prostroke Golf and Castlevania although it appears Castlevania only requires 3.41 Firmware.

Additionally, wuepe has shared OM versions 2.1 and 2.1A (linked above) for those seeking them.

To quote from maquina07 on EOL: "Well, that I have run the Medal of Honor in 3.41 As to operation. Edit PARAM.SFO of the game so that requested the update 3.41.

Change the eboot of the game, the 2010 UFC. OM install 2.1 and start the patch to install game data on the external. (New Function button is activated to select) Install the update that calls for 1.01 and installed the game data with the V4 Hermes."

Those interested can view some better-translated instructions HERE along with the video of it in action below!

ok guys this works 100% of the time and no need to re-install update everytime youu want to play it.

1. on pc open up game folder ie medal of honor and delete pkgdir folder and the folder with the m.oh. frontline extra content if you have the special edition.

2. edit the sfo using sfo editor and change it from 3.4200 to 3.4100

3. save and exit editor

4. now place game folder on to your external device

5. install update for medal of honor using install pkg file options

6. making sure you using hermes v4b and om2.1(x)

7. load up om2.1 and highlight medal of honor and select patch mode

8. now press select to highlight hdd transfer.

9. now hit (o) to copy file over to ps3 hdd

10 once complete insert your origonal ps3 game disc and using patched mode start game via disc symbol on xmb.

hope this helps someone and clears up all the mess surounding this and other new games.

You can copy the game to external straight from your pc,when it gets to the file which is bigger than 4gig an option pops up asking if you want to skip the file, press yes. the file that is 4gig plus happens to be the medal of honor frontline bonus game, so skipping this file dosent matter as it will not effect the actual moh 2010 game.the game also plays fine from external, job done.

I was having the same exact problem. I fixed it by changing my jailbreak hex from Hermes V4b to regular old v4. after that everything installed and played great. The only thing i did to launch MOH was add gaia manager RC10 and enable patch mode after i ftpd MOH to my internal HDD. I also edited the param.sfo in PS3SFOEDIT to say 3.41 instead of 3.42. installed the update straight from sony's servers and played MOH. after initially getting MOH to work i could then launch it with Gaia or Open manager without any patches applied through either loader. hope this helps.

by patch mode on Gaia i meant mem patch.

I use Hermes v4b and Gaia rc9 (OpenManager 2.1 will also work).

PS: I even ran EA Sports MMA too using the same method, but I didn't need to enable the patch mode like in MOH game.

Tomi, I just loaded Hermes V4b on my chip and also loaded Gaia rc9. Edited the PARAM.SFO via the tool you mentioned and changed the version to 3.4100. FTP'd to dev_hdd0/GAMEZ folder and when I tried to launch the game, the game ICON (PS3 XMB menu) comes up as corrupted data.

When I tried to launch the game, it said 'EA MMA needs to install some files on the HDD'. Since the PS3_UPDATE folder was in there, I didn't feel too comfortable doing it, as it might accidentally updated the firmware to 3.42. It could have been the game data too, but didn't want to risk it. Now I went back to FTP and deleted the PS3_UPDATE folder from it, launched the game from Gaia, it came up with an Error code 8002 (something like that) and wouldn't launch the game.

What's wrong with it?
