June 13, 2012 // 2:23 am - Following up on their previous progress updates, today the PS3UserCheat PS3 Cheat USB dongle has been hacked for use on PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) without a dongle by Oct0xor (aka Mr. DongleBreaker) and Flat_z.

Below are some excerpts from his Twitter (linked above), as follows:

Release: ps3usercheat dongle pwned!

I am not a lone wolf and say thanks to all who helps me anyhow with this: @flat_z. <3

Also thanks to Baphometh from who donated dongle to me. Btw its first dongle hacked since original psjailbreak.. all features are available. 1/3... Who's next ?

This also does screenshots in all games. I had patch all by hand, binary. Btw the latest 6.0 cheatlist will be later, when I get some free time.


PS3UserCheat doesn't currently work on TB or Cobra CFW (kicks you back to the PS3 XMB), possibly because it may use peek & poke (speculation at the moment).

Also God of War 3 (BCUS98111) PS3 freezes / locks up the PS3 console when using previous game saves so a new save is required for use with cheats.

To change the title ID you simply need to load the PARAM.SFO in PS3SFOEdit and modify it with another title ID, so you have to use only the real title ID for the game (US, EUR, etc.).

For example in GOW3 (BCUS98111) you don't have the choice to change in-game language for the subtitles, or audio. But when you change the title ID to BCES00510 (EUR version) the menu appears in the options. Don't forget to make backups of your files before you modify them!

Finally, below is a brief PS3UserCheat Tutorial from jakenastysnake (via

STEP 1: You will need to download the PS3usercheat PKG file. Hopefully this part is self explanatory, but if not, then continue on...

Unzip the file and put the .pkg file on the root of a USB drive (The package should be named UP0001-CHET11111_00-0000111122223333.pkg)

STEP 2: Insert your USB drive into the PS3 and find the "Install Package" option under the Game column in the XMB. Install the package. After the package has been installed, the PS3usercheat icon should be visible under Game.

This is a good time to insert your PS3 game disc and load up a game from Multiman or whatever you use for a backup manager. Be sure to make note of the game ID before loading it up... you WILL need it.

STEP 3: Run PS3usercheat (or CU or Code Unique... whatever you wanna call it) and locate your game in the list. It is VERY important that your game ID's match up or this will not work properly. When you find your game, press Circle to view the available cheats. Again, you MUST press Circle to select the cheats that you want. After selecting your cheats, press Start.

STEP 4: You should be back at the XMB now.

*Note - I noticed that if you try loading your game through the */app_home/PS3_GAME/ option, the cheats might not work and when you quit the game, the cheats will be reset (Ex: God of War III on Rebug 3.55.2). That being the case, I would run the game from the disc icon instead.

Run the game from the disc icon and wait for it to load. Test the cheats out and if they work, great! If not, double check your game ID. Also, BE SURE you run the game from the disc icon instead of */app_home/PS3_GAME/

Interesting, i don't like cheating with gaming (i very rarely do), but I might end up contacting them with my PS3 ISO account (heck, I AM a News Poster ). Might pass the dongle to someone who actually wants to cheat lol. Thanks for the info!

is there a database/list of games that you can cheat with using this device, i for one would be interested in buying one if it has a large amount of compatible games & works with custom firmwares?

Today we received word from the PS3UserCheat Team that they are now offering free PS3UserCheat USB dongles to potential PlayStation 3 reviewers each month.

In order to meet the eligibility criteria, candidates simply need to send them an e-mail to [email protected] and answer the following four questions:

1: Are you a professional player of PS3 games?

2: Have you ever had the experience of using the similar devices as PS3USERCHEAT on other platforms?

3: Do you have a high-level account at the big PS3 forum?

4: Do you promise to write a full detail review and send us with e-mail after you received it?

Those who qualify will be eligible to receive a free PS3UserCheat USB dongle to review on the PlayStation 3 gaming forum of their choice.

One tip they mention is the more detailed your answers provided are, the more likely you will be selected as a PS3UserCheat reviewer... so those interested may want to spend a few minutes writing detailed answers versus short replies.

Finally, on the 20th of each month the winners will be listed on theit Web site and notified by e-mail. Good luck everyone!

I remember back in the old days I used to hack up my N64 real good with the gameshark. I still remember messing around with all the guns in Goldeneye 007, having the RCP-90 shoot a rapid-fire laser beam was a blast, or lying down hundreds of remote mines all over the maps and detonating them all at once and watching the resulting cascading fireworks display.

There was so many possibilities with that device, then the PS2 came around and it slowly vanished as more and more games started having online functions, because preventing people from cheating in online games became a real concern.

Although nowadays I don't bother with SP cheating. Just takes all the fun out of it.

Where is the TUT for the PS1 Iso's? Thats what i would prefer... not the cheating thing... if you want to cheat, you can unself the eboot.bin and hexedit the self/elf... and make_self_npdrm back to eboot.bin... have fun cheating without that thingy. you can get the hex changes from for free... it just a little bit more work... but free.

You get trophies if you cheat with a package, why wouldn't you with this?

I'm receiving this dongle for review also. It was sent out via DHL on the 22nd so I should have it shortly. I plan to write up a review and possibly a video review too. The dongle requires a PS3 on firmware 3.41 and my jailbroken console is on 3.55 KMEAW currently. If I cannot downgrade to 3.41 I will see if it's possible to sign the .pkg for 3.55 cfw. The code structure reminds of past cheat devices (AR Max, GameShark, etc) as there is a (M) master code followed by the individual cheat codes, all in hex format.

Here is an example:

"Uncharted2 Among Thieves US BCUS98213"
$0100 42435553 98123018
$2000 00E9BD88 05F5E0FF
$2000 00E9BD8C 00000000

I am confused... since when do you need infinite money in God of War III? Perhaps I have a totally different version ... Did the US version of God of War III allow Kratos to open a shop? Or is that Athena selling a different set of blades to my hero?

It is called ORBS. And I totally agree with elser1. If you need to cheat - rather watch someone play!
