December 8, 2012 // 9:49 pm - Following up on his initial release, this weekend PlayStation 3 developer Flat_z has updated his PS3 Save Game Tools hacking pack alongside a fix for PFDTool v0.2.0 followed by v0.2.1 and v0.2.2 with details below.

Download: PS3 Save Game Tools Pack v0.2.0 / PFDTool v0.2.0 Fix / PFDTool v0.2.2 (Removed) / PFDTool v0.2.2 Fix / PFDTool v0.2.2 (Final) / MSVCR100.dll (Required)

From the included ReadMe file: Guys, here is an updated version of pfdtool.

Please test it carefully because I have no time at the moment to test it by myself.

Changelog:

  • Support of PARAM.PFD for trophies (without keys, of course)
  • Support of PARAM.PFD v4 which used in a newer SDK
  • Fixed a bug with verify operation on signature hashes
  • Now you can use a list of product codes delimeted by '/' (slash), for example: [BLUS31142/BLES01403], they should use the same disc hash key and secure file IDs
  • Show an information about .PFD type and version

The format for 'global.conf' is different. Please add these changes to your files:

1. Add a new parameter called 'user_id' which set the user identifier (the same number as used in your home folder: /dev_hdd0/home/[user_id]/)
2. Add a new parameter called 'keygen_key'. Open 'Talk:Keys' page on the PS3DevWiki and search for string 'KeygenV4'
3. Rename the parameter 'param_sfo_key' to 'savegame_param_sfo_key' (see below)
4. There a bunch of new keys for trophies: 'trophy_param_sfo_key', 'tropsys_dat_key', 'tropusr_dat_key', 'troptrns_dat_key', 'tropconf_sfm_key' and they are not public so left them as XX.

Also I noticed that some of you use a kernel swapping feature in the REX firmware. Don't forget to use your current (!) console ID. For example, if you made a save game on a DEX then you need to specify a DEX console ID.

Disc hash keys are sent to the PS3 by the Blu Ray Drive itself (well, not the actual disc hash key but some data from the disc which will be encrypted after that and used as a disc hash key).

PFDTool 0.2.1 Changelog:

  • Fixed issues with the file size.

PFDTool 0.2.2 Changelog:

  • Now encrypt and decrypt operations update hashes automatically (be sure to use all keys!).
  • Fixed another issue with the file size of modified files.
  • Removed a verbose flag because it is not used at the moment.

Following up on my previous release, today I have updated my (KG971) PS3 Save Resigner to version 2.0 followed by v2.0.1 and v2.0.5 with the changes outlined below.

Download: PS3 Save Resigner 2.0.5 / PS3 Save Resigner 2.0 / 2.0.1 / Ultimate Save Resigning Guide by JeoWay

What's up guys, I give a whole new version of my first PS3 Save Resigner. PS3 Save Resigner 2.0. It's further more easier to resign/decrypt/encrypt a PS3 save now.

Reminder: With the PS3 Save Resigner, you can resign any saves from any regions to any regions. From any accounts to any Accounts.
You can also remove the copy-protection, decrypt & encrypt. It's easy to use, and VERY user-friendly. It works for Retail PS3. You don't have to search keys anymore.

Note: the games.conf is updated regularly by aldostool, so i will update the new file each times in the "yousendit folder". You will have to replace the old one by the updated one in the tool's folder.

Thanks to flat_z for his amazing work. The games.conf is from aldostool. This is just for people who needs an easier way to use flat_z's tool. Credit goes to flatz for his pfdtool.




Update logs 1.5 to 2.0.1:

  • I started over, and came with a more improved application, more easy to use.
  • Support drag and drops, unlimited profiles, detect usb plug, easy resigner/decrypt/encrypt interface ect...
  • And most important less errors. If you have everything installed correctly (msvcr) then, you shouldn't have any problem, unless the game isn't in the games.conf yet.

From the included ReadMe File: In the Plugin folder, you will find msvcr dlls that you will be able to use if the tool deosn't work for you.
Just replace your current dll with one from the plugin folder, don't forget to rename it properly.

You need the following for the tool to work:

  • Net Framework 4.0
  • Visual C++ 2010 Redistibutable x64 or x86
  • Visual C++ 2010 Redistibutable x64 or x86 (MFC Security Update)
  • Visual C++ 2010 Redistibutable x64
  • Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistibutable x64 or x86
  • Visual C++ 2010 Redistibutable x64
  • Visual Studio 2010 F# Redistibutable
  • Visual Studio Tools for Office Runtime (VSTO) 2010 Runtime
  • Visual Studio Tools for Office Runtime (VSTO) 2010 Runtime x64

I've been trying to use the PS3 Save Resigner (GUI version) that came out not too long ago to decrypt (not sure if that's the right term for this) my save for Borderlands 2, so that I may modify it in Gibbed's Borderlands 2 Editor.

I'm not really sure if I'm doing something wrong, or if I'm just mistaken in what the program does.

Is this program supposed to be able to decrypt save.dat files and param.sfo files so you can modify them?

If it is, how would you go about decrypting them for modifying, then re-encrypting them?

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.

OK, thanks for the heads up on this. In the end, this gives me the ability to cheat, which I didn't want to do (and I don't get in general why people want to, but hey that's up to them)

In the end, I erased the save file on the HD and applied my save with the resigner and it worked.

So, case in point if anyone else is having a hard time. Although when you copy it over to your harddrive it will erase what you had there previously, it still wasn't working. Erasing the original save file from your HD before copying it over with ftp or USB stick worked for me. May or may not work for other games, but it's worth trying for sure! Try this for anyone having a few problems.

This may be of use for that title, worth a try anyway: http://uploadmirrors.com/download/1G1VTOCU/GT5CB.rar

Another few updates by qorner for the GT5 save game editor (aka GT5 Career Booster): http://uploadmirrors.com/download/5F1MZRBE/GT5CB-12242012.rar and also http://rghost.net/42581355

Gran Turismo 5 Save Editor / Gran Turismo 5 Career Booster (GT5CB)

What you get with this tool is 20 000 000 in-game credits, and A-Spec level 40.

Prerequisites

First of all, whatever you do, always backup your files! Second, you must upgrade Gran Turismo 5 (GT5) to version 2.09, run it afterwards, load your game, perform manual save from "GT Mode" and finally exit GT5.

Copy GT5 saved data from console to storage media. Tutorial can be found here: http://manuals.playstation.net/document/en/ps3/current/game/copysavedata.html

Download Gran Turismo 5 Career Booster (GT5CB) from SourceForge (new and official source): https://sourceforge.net/projects/gt5cb/files/

Note that I'm not the developer of this tool! I accidentally stumble upon it while using Google

You'll also need flat_z's pfdtool for data crypting. pfdtool can be found here: http://www.ps4news.com/ps3-hacks-jailbreak/ps3-save-game-tools-pack-updated-by-flat-z-pfdtool-v0-2-3-out/

If you're on OFW, as I am, Console ID can be found by following this tutorial (nope, currently there is no easier way): Using pfdtool without cfw (Borderlands 2 specific)

If you want to know how to use the lately released Save Game:

Otherwise, you can either use multiMAN's System Information, or PSID Patch to get your Console ID.

Download PSID Patch here: http://www.ps4news.com/ps3-hacks-jailbreak/psidpatch-1-5-arrives-now-changes-ps3-console-id-sent-to-psn/

Modding

Download Gran Turismo 5 Career Booster (GT5CB) and extract the archive contents to a writable directory, preferably without spaces or any special characters in folder path (e.g. C:\GT5CB\ or C:\Users\Public\GT5CB\).

Copy entire BCES00569-GAME (\PS3\SAVEDATA\BCES00569-GAME) folder and its contents from storage media to ..\GT5CB\SAVEDATA\ folder. Also, put flat_z's pfdtool.exe in ..\GT5CB\Tools\pfdtool\ folder (pfdtool *.conf files will be automatically generated by GT5CB).

Run GT5CB, browse for BCES00569-GAME folder and pfdtool.exe file, fill-in all necessary keys and click on the large "Boost GT5 Career / Ruin GT5 Experience " button. Save data, as well as pfdtool configuration files will be automatically (re)created. If everything is OK, you will be prompted to either continue or cancel the save data modding. If information provided is correct, click "Yes". Once completed, copy/overwrite modified save data from your PC back to PS3 via storage media and run GT5.

Note that SFO file is not modified this way, as it is not required by GT5 loading system. Data in SFO file will be automatically updated (corrected) by GT5 itself once loaded. Happy modding!

Hi guys, i have some problems with this homebrew. When I tried to install it on Rogero 4.30 with standalone install package files app, it didn't even start the installation (error 80029564). Then I resigned it with the TrueAncestor EBOOT resigner, now it finishes the installation but it still doesn't work, it gives error 80010017 and returns to XMB. Is it possible to make it work? Here is the package.conf file I used to rebuild the .pkg:
