Try to make a new test account in your ps3 and launch game in that accout. If it boots, savegame is bad. If it freezes, patch is bad. Delete game data from ps3, lauch game normally and go to options, file manager, pre-insall game files. When it finishes, install patches in order, or else it wont work. YOU CANT CHANGE PATCH INSTALL ORDER!!!
p.s- I dont remember well the options menu game, because my game is in portuguese, not in english, so i dont know how the translation is made in gt5
Cleared the data, done the pre-Install game files, installed the first patch (1.05) before even trying the other patches, and same thing again, freezing at the polyphony sign, tried it on another user account, same thing, so theres some issue with the patch it seems, i had actually downloaded those patches from the exact same place you posted, think im just going to play it at 1.0 as it doesnt make a massive difference to the game anyway.
Thanks for your help!
