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

It's European - NPEB01968.

You should read a bit more carefully, it was in the install instructions.

It was released earlier today on topsites from what I can tell, but unless others start posting them here to help us out the best I can do is tend to them as time permits.

We were really hoping that the updated site design and removal of ALL of the ads would encourage other members to post more frequently on the forums, but it sadly appears to have had no affect at all. Most people visit daily but lurk, and simply opt not post because others aren't posting either unfortunately.
