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.


  • 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.

most games should work with different ID codes, same as with dongle and you can also use app_home with cheats

for example, i have used mostly BLAS codes for BLES games with usercheat

That seems to be my problem, as in all my games are bles but the ones I want on the usercheat seem to mostly be blus.

Sweet. I've always wanted a program that could take ingame screenshots. Now if only it didn't have the cheat thing attached to it. Better than nothing lol

anyone who wants to cheat on world at war but if you have BLES00354 game ID download the latest game update data then download the american version here:

and replace the contents of your update data with the ameican version but keeping the original PARAM.SFO file. this might work with other games too!

From what I seen, when trying to get it to work, the cheat list is preloaded in the package and seems pretty up to date. Hopefully the author will update it when needed or at least give the info needed for DIY.

you said it yourself, why would someone who CAN do it for free pay, they don't. It is those who cannot do it that fall for these dongles.

So it allows cheats in games. There are a heap of free PKGs that add cheats to games and you can edit a few games to add cheats to them also all for free.

WHY would someone want a dongle that does what you can already do for free?

No it allows to boot a game with cheats active on it. It has not nothing to do it playing any new games. Just allows you to cheat on them.
