110w ago - Following up on the Uncharted 3 PS3 EBOOT Fix for 3.55 and 3.41 Custom Firmware comes a Battlefield 3 PS3 EBOOT Fix for CFW users from PlayStation 3 scene release group Duplex this weekend!
From the PS3 NFO (Battlefield.3.Eboot.Patch.PS3-DUPLEX) File, to quote: DUPLEX has done it again - here's an eboot patch to play the retail Disc based version from your hdd - on CFW 3.55 !!
We would usually just support BLUS30762 (Battlefield.3.PS3-DComics - Dcomics release!) , since we do not acknowledge lame region dupes. It's just a waste of traffic unless the nfo clearly states a difference to the first release (like different or additional languages etc).
But since the BLES01275 (Battlefield_3_EUR_PS3-ABSTRAKT) dupe contains several new languages, we added a patch for it too.
Included are updates, cracks and param.sfo's for both versions : BLUS30762 and BLES01275
1.) copy BLUS or BLES files to a FAT32 USB Key/USB Disk
2.) install the *DUPLEX*.Patch.v1.01.pkg
3.) install the *DUPLEX*.Crack.pkg
4.) run game from multiman and let it patch your param.sfo (alternatively take the one from our pack and replace it manually)
5.) play from xmb on your cfw 3.55 !
Note: HeyManHRU states the follow for those curious: "I just want to clarify that this isn't an Eboot fix, but it's just the 1.01 update (which originally contains the 3.60 keys) decrypted for 3.55 CFW users.
So they've essentially used the 3.60+ NPDRM keys which was used to decrypt PSN games on the game update enabling it to work."
For those wondering, here is how to run Battlefield 3 on PS3 3.41 CFW as well:
Step 1: Extract Battlefield 3 bles-xx or blus-xx into a fat 32 usb or hdd
Step 2: Turn on the ps3 enter multiman select battlefield 3 multiman will ask you to patch the sfo to 3.41 select yes.
step 3: In the xmb go to install package files
Step 4: Install duplex patch v1.01 pkg
Step 5: Install duplex crack pkg
Step 6: Run the game!! (you don't need to enter again to multiman)
Finally, below is a video of a Battlefield 3 PS3 Invincibility Glitch... to quote from HSx9:
"This glitch was discovered accidentally. The process was redone, and the glitch was successfully re-created. The glitch allows the player to gain invincibility, also known as God Mode.
The only way you can die from this glitch is if you get shot by a shotgun, other than that you become immortal, you can survive any other type of bullet, explosive, and melee.
There will be no tutorial released to keep the game safe, however it has been reported to the developers, for a patch.
However if EA Dice doesn't respond to my emails or fix the glitch I may release it, and have them patch it from everyone doing it (Like the MW2 Leaderboard hack)."

Duplex thanks so much for the hard work and effort on this. Hopefully we will see more eboots like this released. I'm hoping down the road DeanK will come out with a patch utility for patch updates similiar to the Eboot Mod so that way we can continue to play new fw games that are released.
spideygower - you posted you had problems running this in Gaia manager. I use multiman and had a similiar problem but this is how I resolved it.
1.) inserted the game and copied
2.) ran the 1.01 patch and then crack.
3.) tried running but then got a error to what you were describing.
I then saw that there were two more .pkg files that I could run.
Ran the other 1.01 patch and then ran the other crack and reran from multiman which brought me back to the xmb.
Ran from the from there with no problems so I'm suspecting this patch is designed for different firmwares. ie kmeaw or others. Give this a try and it should work out for you.
absolutely agree 100% duplex has done a lot for the ps3 scene.. and seeing as they are mainly a release group it awesome that they've done this work for us end users.. the way the spirit of the scene should be.. +rep for duplex.. LOL
although i didn't like the sp campaign much the mp is king.. and the coop campaigns are good but i can't get past the 2nd one with the heli.. i can't fly well enough..i know its probably being greedy but i wish there was psn for everyone.. but then again i'm also glad theres not..
