Download: The House of the Dead: Overkill PS3 CFW Fix / The House of the Dead: Overkill PS3 CFW 3.55 Fix / PS3 3.55 EBOOT.BIN and PARAM.SFO (Mirror) / The House of the Dead: Overkill PS3 CFW 3.41 Fix / PS3 3.41 EBOOT.BIN and PARAM.SFO (Mirror) / The House of the Dead: Overkill PS3 (EUR) CFW Fix

The House of the Dead: Overkill PS3 Custom Firmware fix is intended to be used with the The_House_Of_The_Dead_Overkill_USA_PS3-CLANDESTiNE (BLUS30774) PS3 scene release, however, some users report that using PlayStation Move may cause it to freeze.

Note: The game will work with the EUR version by renaming the "uk" folder in "PS3_GAME/USRDIR/uk" to "us" but some images and text are missing though. A European version fix is available HERE courtesy of BauerIvan.

The House of the Dead: Overkill PS3 CFW Tutorial:

1) Delete the UPDATE folder of the game (optional).
2) Place the Eboot.bin file in the USRDIR folder of the game.
3) Run it on multiMAN and it should work.

PS3 Version 3.41 was tested playable House of the Dead - drive out the U.S. version. Taking the time to study the game cracked under 3.6 above, in fact, people just want to say PS3 crack get the same strength, eboot has been decrypted elf, just above 3.41 with make_fself made a use of theory.

355R system is also tested, and detailed test report:

Thanks to my good friend violentcris for sending me the news and to ps3de for also reporting it.

This has been confirmed working by ragnarok0929, to quote roughly translated:

Confirmed the PS3 version of The House of the Dead: Overkill the crack is valid!

  • Link:
  • Test Environment: 3.55.2 up0.4 REBUG, MM2.09.02 Chinese version, the U.S. version of "House of the Dead: Ruthless" (original required 3.70!!!)
  • Built-in (external) lead stress-free operation, has been tested for 10 minutes into the game! No guidance is not to be tried!
  • I heard this game is the hacker break, too much to force the amount of cracking technology is not that we are worse than others!


1. Delete the UPDATE folder within the game (without leaving the seeds removed)
2. Corresponding crack download package, replace the folder PS3_GAME under the SFO documents and PS3_GAME/USRDIR under EBOOT.BIN file (remember to modify a good name, the original backup file note!)
3. Incoming internal or external
4. MM load operation guide

PS: The game has more than 1,300 small files, it is recommended to run the built games to support MOVE, of course, can also play regular handle! Games support 3D, you know.

Well I don't know if it will work with the EUR version or not, I just read someone saying it would. Anyways replace the Eboot.bin (from the fix) and edit the game ID in the Param.sfo that comes with the fix to BLUS30774.

Hello HeyManHRU : The downloaded fix comes with eboot.bin and a param.sfo. For BLES .. do I copy the eboot.bin only and overwrite BUT don't use the param.sfo that came with it and rather edit the original param.sfo to blus30774? Thanks

Just change the game ID to "BLUS30774". You can even use notepad to change the Game ID.

It doesn't work on BLES Version.. You will get a BLANK SCREEN like me too Need to download again the BLUS and it can work as this FIx is only for BLUS not for BLES ...

Unless someone got the FIX For BLES ABSTRACT RELEASE then we are safe if not we have to download again the US Version..

There are some reports of this game working with the EUR version of the game by changing the Game ID in the Param.sfo from "BLES#####" to "BLUS30774".
It doesn't work for me.. I didn't know manually but i let the Multiman do the jobs .. after that try to load on both disc and without disc still getting BLANK SCREEN.

Btw how you change the PARAM.SFO from BLES TO BLUS coz i use the PS3SFOEdit and what should i do on the inside as Game Type what should i choose ?
