February 7, 2011 // 7:03 pm - Recently ColdReader released PS3SaveUnlocker, a PS3 Game Save Unlocker homebrew PC application for the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

Currently this won't work on different region PS3 saves as it copies your PSN ID (both occurances) and then parses the other param.sfo and puts your ID in that param.sfo and rebuilds it.

Download: PS3SaveUnlocker / PS3SaveUnlocker r1 / PS3SaveUnlocker r2

To quote: Hello everyone, i created this little app it took me about 15 minutes.

This app can unlock another persons save by opening your param.sfo from your save and then opening their param.sfo from their save, it will then create a new param.sfo that you can use to overwrite the other param.sfo in the other users save that you'd like to use.

this app may not work for some or most games, but i know it works on raging blast 2 =D

p.s. i used satanicat's save guide as a basis for creating the app

UPDATE: i've added a few error checks to the app

UPDATE 2/8/11: i've added a few tweaks to the UI, also i've made the app copy your gameID from yourSFO to the otherSFO if the id in otherSFO is not the same, hopefully this might help games from other regions work.

UPDATE 2/9/11: i've added a save file dialog, in other words, you shouldnt get any file errors now, you can choose the name and where to save the modded param.sfo also theres a new feature enabling you to copy your console id to the modded param.sfo users can try this if the default settings wont work.

I was having trouble getting my gt5 save back after I installed a new internal hdd, was able to fix it by making a new save ingame, then overwriting all files but the param.sfo via ftp at the save folder in home/game/profile_folder etc.

Thanks for the info!

Sorry for bumping an old thread but has anyone found a way to unlock locked save files.

I've created some content for Smackdown vs Raw 2011 and I want to share my save file with someone who can upload the content to psn. Because the save file is locked, non jailbreak users cannot simply copy the save from a usb disc to their console.

Is there any way around this?

That may be true but we need a PS3 file resigner to make this better. Creating and over-writing saves is a much more time-consuming matter. We have a file/save resigner and you don't need all that.

Just resign and FTP directly over to the PS3. No need for having a save of the same type already on the HDD. See my point?

Exactly what I stated from my previous post quoted here: "I've been creating saves on HDD to match offline saves. I then was over-writing all files except for the PARAM.SFO file. This works almost the same."

This is what I've been doing for a while now. However, the only way this will work for me is if the saves match exactly in name. If you create a save on HDD and the offline save doesn't match in name it will not work.

There needs to be a better solution for this. Why should we be limited to making matching names to over-write saves? Why not have something like the Modio application for the 360?

Resign the save to your profile and off you go. Much easier and no need for so much trouble. A PS3 file resigner would be a much better option. It's time for one of these applications for the PS3. The 360 save resigners have been around a good while now. It's time for one on the good ol' PS3.

Useless, sorry ! Just create your own savegame from the game and get it via FTP. Copy everything from the other savegame over yours, except the PARAM.SFO and it works. The PARAM.SFO must be your own, the PARAM.PFD and the other stuff can be created from other persons.

Like written above, FTP method > this app !
