122w ago - A few months back PlayStation 3 hacker Scorpion2k released an El Shaddai Ascension of The Metatron Multi-language patch for the Japanese version, and today both ninjanutta and scene release group ASDOX have made available some PS3 CFW 3.41 / 3.55 and Discless fixes for the iMARS (USA) release.
For those interested in using the Multi-language Patch, below are the instructions from Scorpion2k to quote:
El Shaddai Tool JAP -> Multi (English, Italian, French, German, Spanish)
Choose language & click 'Patch'
Delete El Shaddai game data
The ASDOX fix requires users to swap out / replace the PlayStation 3 game files from the El.Shaddai.Ascension.of.The.Metatron.USA.PS3-iMARS release with those in their release, followed by playing the game from an internal PS3 HDD.
Finally, to quote from the BLUS30466 [Fix Only] Discless release text file:

I never referred to any person as being gay, so not sure what your talking about there. I was expressing my opinion about the game, which roughly translates to "I think it's a horrible game from what I've seen."
At any rate I hope I haven't offended anyone. If so, I do apologize.
Why would you do all this when you can just use the ebootfix tools on the USA copy and play as normal. All english and no need to patch anything else. Just use the ebootfix tools on the usa version and happy days.
