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!

3- Change the Eboot download the pack (Which is the UFC 2010) by the original Medal of Honor
4- Install Manager 2.1 Open and install the game data on external hard disk as the Internal Apparently Does Not Work
5- Update via online via online game

1st, I got the AUS version which is different from the EU version as its BLES-01108
I then dummied the 6GB file which is MOH Frontlines install. Thats the only 4+GB file.
I then edited PARAM.SFO so it says 3.41.
I then copied all the files to the USB HDD.
I have Hermes v4 and OpenBM 2.1
I run OpenBM2.1 and choose MoH.
No extras, all off.
I put in a disc and the game runs.
It asks to update, I say yes and let it update.
I install it to hdd like it asks. NOT EXT, that option was left OFF. Internal like any other game.
It runs fine. Played it through the first mission without any problems.

I did the same with EA Sports MMA.
All games work fine. MMA even works without a disc in the drive.

The 6GB file is the extra game Medal Of Honor Frontlines.
I installed that and it works fine too.
How I did it was with Demo Installer. Copied it over, rebooted into normal mode and it installed.
It did ask for a disc in the drive. I rebooted into jailbreak mode and now it boots up without a disc and again runs fine.

No need to mess around with eboots or anything.
Just tell the game it needs 3.41 and thats the only editing I did.

I also just tried Tiger Woods 2011 and that also works fine with a disc in the drive. No eboots, just the asked for update. It even works with the move controller.

Hi Jes03, could you let me have the link to the BLES01108 patch please?

If anyone is seeking OM 1.17.2 (normal and compiled) I have now added it and the changes to our last Open Manager thread here:

Soon we will do a new OM Site News post and Forum thread, as that one is beginning to look a little crowded.

If you have a break1.1 PIC version (PIC18f2550) than there is no Hermes 4 or 4b available!! ...yet.. someone has yet to compile it. Unless ... your break is the AT90USB162 version which you can do via flip or visit your boards site to learn how.

1) install MoH 2010 USA release iCON using FTP to dev_hdd0/games/oman46756/gamez as usual
2) Didn't replace the EBOOT.BIN as wasn't needed at all
3) installed Gaia rc9
4) installed MOH 2010 USA update from pen drive
5) Using Gaia rc9, activated patch mode (L1) and with original disc inside launched MoH, returned to XMB and runned the game
6) after some minutes of mandatory installation the game runs fine

Couldn't be easier to bypass fw 3.42! For the people with problems with EBOOT.BIN try to change your manager for another with patch mode and verify you are using the right install path for the game.

hey, how did you install hermes 4 on ps3break v.1.1??
