To quote blazie151: I'm just bringing a little update for anyone that's messing around with 3.56 or 3.60 pups. Whenever a tar file is modified, it's permissions need to be set.

For all firmwares 3.55 or lower, it was one set of permissions. 3.56 and up use another. This is Kakaroto's Fix Tar command line application updated and tested working for use on 3.56 and 3.60 firmware tar files.

All credit goes to Kakaroto, all I did was change some values and compile it. Please note this is of only of use to developers and not beginner users.

It should be noted that the fix in question is only a "band-aid" solution to the problem.

1000°
216w ago - Similar to how Medal of Honor required PlayStation 3 Firmware 3.42 until a workaround followed by a fix surfaced, today James Bond 007 Blood Stone USA was released by DEFECT for PS3 JailBreak users, and the NFO File states it requires PS3 Firmware 3.50.

While the European version only requires Firmware 3.41, I have gotten the USA scene release version of James Bond 007 Blood Stone working fine here.

Although it initially requires PS3 Firmware 3.50, I modified the SFO File to version 3.41000 and removed the game's update folder.

Then I simply used the EBOOT.bin file from the MRN European version and it's now running on my JailBroken PS3 console. The game is currently...
