133w ago - Similar to Brink for PS3, LA Noire now has a retail update patch v1.01 built with Sony's 3.5 SDK that allows users to run the PlayStation 3 game on PS3 Custom Firmware including Kmeaw and Rebug CFW via MultiMAN.
Finally, some notes on getting the title to run on PS3 Custom Firmware are below, as follows:
The patch was designed for the EUR version of the game. Use the param.sfo to change the USA version before installing the patch.
Change the PARAM.sfo of LA Noire to BLES00933 instead of that orginal BLUS.
Change the PARAM.sfo of LA Noire required fw to 3.55 (or let MM do it).
Save the file.
Overwrite the original param.sfo with the one provided.
Install the pkg update patch.
Run LA Noire on multiman! Then play the game.
Tested on 3.55 Kmeaw's from internal, the game can be started discless.
Note: If your PS3 controller isn't working after you get to play, exit game and run it without sel+x on multiman. Select+x is only needed for it to install. Now your controller should work.

However, I'm still a bit confused about the part where you need to press triangle in Multiman since I get prompted to exit to XMB if I do so. Do I need the newer version of Multiman? I sure hope not, because last time when I tried to install it my system crashed.
btw: Wouldn't it just be easier to install the US patch to begin with, so the only thing you would have to do is to install it and let Multiman do it's magic?
Ok, think I get it now when you mentioned ps3sfoedit. I just didn't practically have any idea what you were talking about but now when I downloaded the program and saw it, I think I understand. You're just supposed to load the param, go to advanced settings and change the values from there right?
You need to do more than just rename, you need to edit the param.sfo in the PS3_GAME folder so that it also says that it is BLES00933 - and also install the patch via .pkg file.
Game works perfectly for me on Kmeaw cfw with Gaia manager. I think that has something to do with having a 7800 rpm hard drive attached outside the ps3 - because other people complain about things not loading, which sounds like an issue with red dead redemption I had with the default ps3 hard drive. It was loading, the hard drive just couldn't keep up with the game.
