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/

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

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?
