I have spent houres on this forum and tried lot of the suggestions here and still can't get my Black Ops BLUS30591 to boot neither from internal HDD or the external HDD. I get black screen and PS3 freeze. No Errors at all.
There is always a ps3 disc in the mechine.
I have a Phat 60gig backward compatible version with kmeaw 3.55 CFW.
I used multiman and gaia to rip the disks to the internal HDD then transfered to external 250gig FAT32.
I can boot my original backup of COD MW2 from external HDD but not the Black Ops (Also legit copy BLUS30591 ).
I have tried the COD_BO_BLUS30591_pack for 3.41 CFW and didnt work.
I used latest version Multiman and set the permissions and also gaia 2.07 and no luck what so ever. I saw a thread here that said use patch 1.05 after you over write COD_BO_BLUS30591_pack to the game trugh ftp.
I cant find this patch anywhere. Again, lot of people here say that none of this is needed and it should just work off the external HDD with no modification to the original disc dump. (This is how my COD MW2 works anyway)
Please, any suggestion is very appriciated.
