From richdotward on Disney Epic Mickey 2 The Power of Two PS3: Got mickey working. Simple as change the .sfo file to 4.21 overwriting 4.25. Then just use your preferred eboot resigner and it works fine. No patch out. Resign the eboot.bin on the disk, change the .sfo to 4.21 and it works. Sorry not posting my patch. People better just get used to resigning things themselves. Took me 1 minute tops.

Here's mine. Rogero 4.21 internal, no bd mirror: http://www.4shared.com/rar/oMdWbShv/BLES01627_-_Epic_Mickey_2___42.html

No, I checked the Russian site and is the same (every game the same link but download different).

Something else bugs me. Some fixes have .pkg extensions and some dont at all. Just file. On Russian site said to put those games fixes to /dev_hdd0/home/00000001/exdata/ with MM. So, those .pkg files also or what?
The first I saw of this .edat file installation was with Shank, and it worked fine...

How to play:
1. Transfer to an external FAT32 media (pendrive/USB HDD) or over FTP
2. Use MultiMan's File Manager to copy the contents of FIX folder to /dev_hdd0/home/00000001/exdata/
The folder '00000001' is your user profile id. If you have only one profile -- that is the only folder you'll see under /home/ catalog.
In case you have multiple profiles, copy the *.edat file to the one that you will be playing the game from.
If the folder 'exdata' is not present that means you've never been logged to PSN -- create it manually and put fixed file in it.
3. Install pkg through Install Package Files
4. Play full version of Shank through XMB!

Deathspank TOV works the same way, with the fix being an .edat file. Don't know how many other games use this curious method.

Are there fixes for PSN games like the Spyro series? I have the game packages. Just need the fixes. I bought them on PSX and then again from PSN but can no longer play the PSN versions since I no longer can connect to PSN since I use a 3.55 CFW.

I've heard there are fixes for the 3 Spyro game but I can't seem to find them.

Any help is appreciated.
