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.

Now this is perfect! Please try to keep this updated or maybe provide a way for people to backup locked saves via PS3, without having it softmodded to do it.

Locked saves are lame and this is just great! Thanks a ton

This is useful for sure! So, does it tell us the path to the save files? I never did find those.

so it won't fix saved games that were screwed by downgrading?
