September 17, 2010 // 3:58 pm - Update: Phidyos has now released an application called GetYourPlatinum v1.0 which will unlock all PS3 trophies with random timestamps (2010).

Today Inaudax at (linked above) has shared how to Platinum Trophy any PS3 game instantly, and made available a guide and video below along with another from Sh1m3oN to unlock PS3 Trophies.

To quote: That's right, geezers. You can now platinum any PS3 game instantly!


• An exploited PS3 (JailBroken) on 3.41
• PC with Hex Editor Neo (recommended)
• The PS3 FTP Manager application by CJPC
• Filezilla (PC FTP Client)

I'm warning you right now. If you plan to sync your hacked trophies with this method, you may face a risk of getting banned by Sony. It's highly unlikely but it's possible. So, be warned!

A brief of how this hack works:

Inside the trophy collection section on your XMB, there are games represented by thier TROPUSR.DAT(s) respectively, where you can view the % of a game, what have you unlocked, etc. TROPUSR.DAT stores all of that information. Basically to get everything unlocked on a game, you will need to edit that game's TROPUSR.DAT.

Manually editting TROPUSR.DAT can take a while to get used to. But after learning where and which byte to change, you will be able to platinum a game in no time.


Modifying the TROPUSR.DAT file of Yakuza 3 will be part of this tutorial.

1) Launch the FTP service on PS3.

2) Open Filezilla on PC, connect and navigate to the folder where TROPUSR.DAT is stored. For example:


00000001 is my user ID.

NPWR01101_00 is the Yakuza 3 folder.

Inside the NPWR01101_00 folder, there will be a file which is called TROPUSR.DAT. Download that file to your PC.

3) Open TROPUSR.DAT with Hex Editor Neo.

4) Now, we need to figure out how many trophies does Yakuza 3 have:

5) Next, we need to add a byte that we have 45 trophies generally unlocked.

6) Now, we need to add FF and two zero bytes (meaning 100%) below the 45 byte that you have just inserted.

7) This is the final step. Now, you just need to unlock every trophy by adding 01 00 01 10 to every trophy ID's in the file.

To understand what I have exactly inserted, go to Tool in Hex Editor Neo -> File Comparison -> Compare Files. Put two TROPUSR.DAT (0% and 100%) in the dialogs and change the comparison method to 'Difference algorithm' and click Ok. Now, you will be able to see what I have edited. This will help you understand easier. Good luck!

And, oh, when you view a trophy info on XMB with the hacked TROPUSR.DAT, you will see something like 'Earned - '. That's because I didn't add timestamps. At the moment, I don't know how to add one... because I'm not 100% sure which bytes are responsible for that. Here's an example of some legit trophy I've unlocked:

I'll figure out how to add timestamps later if I can.

I tried to hack Far Cry 2 just for fun.

But I stuck now. I want 100% and just have 97% and Platinum. If i pressed /_\ I see in the Trophy info on PS3 that I unlocked 48 / 49 trophies. A silver one is missing I just have 6 instead of 7, but every trophy in the list with picture.

Can anybody help ?

I don't like this, it will ruin the game it self. Is no a problem if you want to copy it, cuz there are ppl that can't expend too much money on them and you own the game it self and should be yours the decision if you want or not share them... but this!.. it will ruin the experience of any game... Come on guys for me this is to much i'll just pass it.

Legit trophys do add a lot of replay value, yeah they are virtual trophys, but its cool seeing how you go unlocking trophys and by the end of the game have a couple only left to platnium. Also when you only have a couple of games you say what the heck lemme get those trophys and sync them to show off I did it.

Getting a platinum is no easy task believe me I have only two, Im an adult with a full day job a house to look for and a girlfriend and when I did my platinums it was something pretty cool. Even my girlfriend how isnt a gamer thinks getting all the trophys is cool, she says thats sick hehehe.

I discovered this method before. (just look at the date in the video). But for not helping trolls to destroy "values of trophies", I haven't release how to, unlike Inaudex. Even my method works with all games, with an addition, arleady has the timestamp! it's easy

This is just another way of cheating, just like using glitches in games like Call Of Duty, it aint big and it aint clever. I'm all for PS3 homebrew but if it means keeping jailbroken console away from the PSN, then so be it!

Timestamps can be added easily, but I think Sony can find out you hacks it and ban your Account on lifetime.

And yes, you have to upgrade to the newest firmware to sync, but if u have a new PS3, hacked their a lot of games sync it and than use it legit, maybe some people will buy a new PS3 ...
