Just an FYI here, I thought I'd let anyone who cares to know that I successfully fixed Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition BLES01765 with DarkEbootFixer v3.0. It was so easy I just about fell out of my chair!
Just a simple eboot.bin fix and I manually edited the param file. I'm still on an old 3.41 dongle (plz no 3.55 lectures, lol), so it kinda surprised me it ran from external without BD-Mirror. I did have a game disc inserted and ran it from the disc icon off the XMB screen. It may run discless, but I didn't test it that way.
The tool wouldn't work for Raccoon City however, so it's not perfect. One thing puzzles me with Dark Souls though, it won't show up in my older version of multiMAN. It does however, show up in my even older open manager which also runs it. Not sure what's going on there, but I'm quite happy to have it working.

on ps3news after a brief search. Good luck!
