another GT5 post...
I apologize for opening a new thread, I did search lots of threads about this, but I'm not being able to find a solution.
I have a 120gb Slim PS3 3.41 OF with a groopic with hermes v4b.
I use Open Manager 2.1-I. Never had an issue, yet...
Backed up GT5 into internal. Replaced Eboot (got it from the repository thread here).
In open manager, inserted a BR (metal gear solid 4), then fixed permissions, and then hit X to run, not direct, but returning to XMB.
Game starts, but then the silver GT logo appears. And that's it.
Tried discless, tried disconecting the ethernet cable, disabling the internet connection on XMB, right now, I don't know what else try...
One more thing, before the GT5 logo, I get a black screen.
Pressing start, X or O, takes me to the logo...
Try a PL3 payload. The No_unauth to be exact.
first of all, thanks for taking time to answer.
second, im kinda new to this, can you please explain a little further?
does that mean i have to upgrade my dongle or something?
Yep, you need the PL3 payload for it instead of the Hermes v4b. In all honesty though, you'd be better off just upgrading to 3.55 kmeaw, cause you're kind of being left behind now. There is a very small user base that is still using dongles, which means you're going to find it harder and harder to find modified eboots.
i have a 320gb slim. no dongle. using kmeaw 3.55.

replaced eboot from the eboot repository thread here, and edited param.sfo to 3.50, still no joy.
help please? or some can post a original copy of eboot.bin and param.sfo?
Well, thanks for jacking someone else's thread. And, had you bothered to read, you'd know that you need all original eboot/param/any other files if playing the game on 3.55. The files in the eboot thread are modified for 3.41 users. Go backup the game from the original disk and it will play fine.

You're correct. We've changed the rules around here because it's too close to piracy. If you actually have the original disk, then there should be no issue getting the original files off of it.
