Gran Turismo 5 for PlayStation 3 Arrives, GT5 PS3 JailBreak WIP


Sponsored Links
197w ago - Today Polyphony Digital's Gran Turismo 5 is making its rounds on the Internet by release group DComics, while PS3 JailBreak users are working on how to get it running without updating the PlayStation 3 console to 3.50 Firmware as required by the title.

The full US release name is Gran.Turismo.5.PS3-DComics and the game weighs in at 19.4GB (20,882,698,502 bytes) in size unpacked for those wondering (packed at 19515.8MB), with the leaked European version coming in at 13.72GB in size.

According to the NFO File, the following important note states: "To play the game you need to spoof your fw as 3.5 with one of the payloads available in net."

There is also now another scene release named Gran.Turismo.5.EUR.JB.PS3-PEMA in which the NFO File states the following: "Spoofed firmware 3.5 required" and under Install Notes: "Unrar files and copy gamedir dir to external harddrive or use some PS3 FTP server. Files must be placed in the GAMEZ folder."

Although there have been a few reports of it working they are unconfirmed thus far, with most currently reporting getting a black screen or error 80028F08 that the data is corrupted when editing the PARAM.SFO file and using various PS3 payloads and Open Managers applications.

The US release version (BCUS-98114) was compiled with PS3 SDK 3.50 while the Euro leaked version (BCES-00569) of the game was compiled with PS3 SDK version 3.30, however, many users believe until a Debug Patch Update surfaces (as opposed to a 403/404 error) PS3 JailBreak users may have to hold off playing it.

As always, we'll update this article when a JailBroken PS3 GT5 fix or work-around arrives.

I hope someone with the required skills will work on all the 3.50 games and the ones that black screen eg. split second. My 4 year old son wants to play cloudy with a chance of meatballs, so there could be some joy soon.

Hi folks... as I can read on internet:

3.50 games should now be workable on 3.41. Decrypt the EBOOT.BIN and repackage it without the security or calls to 3.50. Of course it could also be used to unlock PSN game EBOOTs

it seems we'll be able to play GT5

GT5 Prologue has some "extra" tracks in a hidden menu. (But there is no actual game data for these tracks.)

I want to unpack GT5's GT.VOL file to see if I can get extra tracks to play in GT5Prologue.

I found some old GT3.VOL file extraction tools. I'll give those a go. What harm can it do?
It will not work unfortunately.

Corrupt your game data, that's all. Make a copy of it, and you are safe.
