NOOB HERE SO PLAY NICE
my names paul im 28 from the uk and i do not own a ps3 lol
however my friend has asked me to jailbreak his ps3, which i did last night with no real problems (apart from trying to boot it into recovery lol thats a bitch)
he was on ofw 2.7x? or something like that
so i upgraded him to 3.55 ofw
then used Kmeaw 3.55cfw installer
then i installed multiman 2.1 and some BDROM-Reset.pkg
and last i installed 3.66 spoofer
all this went well
i then aquired dirt 3, put in on my 80gb fat32 external hdd plugged it into ps3, booted multiman scanned attached devices and found the game
i then installed game to ps3 internal hdd, all cpoied with no errors
then i clicked on game within multiman this then took me back to stock xmb where dirt 3 now shows up with a disc icon (i believe this is correct?)
i then click on the game to start it and i get the error code 80010017
i asked my friend google about this code and he tells me i need to "deactivate and activate" my psn account!
well now the fun starts lol yes he did setup a psn account like 3yrs ago but then moved and had no internet for like 2yrs
now cfw is 3.55 kmeaw, and spoofer reads 3.66 but when i try to sign into his psn account (again which i think i have to do to deavtivate) i get the message "there is a new firmware update" "do you want to update" i click NO psn closes
so my question is what can i do to sort this out? or am i just beeing a tool and the spoofer does not do what i think as in spoof fw to newer to play newer games? i thought if you have cfw 3.55 installed then spoofed to 3.66 and dirt 3 requires fw 3.6 its should all work, yes?
many many thanks in advance
DIRT 3 doesn't run in CFW
A spoofer is only supposed to prevent a jailbroken PS3 from accidentally updating, it does not contain the new keys from the new firmwares. You cannot run Dirt 3 because it, like you said, is a 3.60 game, so it requires the 3.60 keys which are only found in the new OFWs.
hahahahha thast funny shit lol so what does the spoofer do other then change in under system info? it cant trick psn store and wont spoof to play new games? again sorry for noob questions but i dont own a ps3 and have spent hours reading last night and early hours of this morning and to be fair im still none the bloody wiser
