Take this .PKG TITLE and then grab an edited (to FW v1.00) PARAM.SFO file
In the above phrase, 'PARAM.SFO' is actually an attachment link, which is no longer working. Apparently, it has been edited to a firmware version requirement of 1.00 ... Can someone please tell me how this was achieved ?
I have some other PARAM.SFOs of some other games, but I don't know how to change their firmware version ...
Please do help me out here people .. Thanx in advance
Wait are you trying to do this with a pkg or a game save? Because if you are trying to do it with a pkg file the file has to be resigned with the key only sony has at the moment. If you are trying to do it with a save it wont help you accomplish anything.
You can't edit the beta pkg. All pkg files that sony makes are signed with a special key that no one has or cracked yet. So it is impossible for you to run a pkg after editing the file you are trying to edit.
Take a look in winhex, the SFO's version should be "2.40"
Do a text search for it, there is only one, and then change it!
The problem lies in getting the file back on the PS3 though.
First of all, thanx for replying CJPC
Now coming to the matter at hand .. Can you tell me which PS3 game's param.sfo has the 2.40 written in it ... ? Which game is that ?
Secondly, I have seen the param.sfo's from a variety of PS3 games, and none of them have the firmware version written up in them as plainly as 2.40 in the text .. .... This leads me to believe that maybe the param.sfo's I am seeing are not the right ones ?? Just to let you know, I am getting the param.sfo's for various PS3 games, by downloading a game save for that game, and then opening up the param.sfo in there ... are these the correct param.sfo's ??
Take this .PKG TITLE and then grab an edited (to FW v1.00) PARAM.SFO file (or edit your own if you wish, grabbing one such as http://download-prod.online.scea.com/medius-patch/warhawk-pubeta/warhawk/20070608_r012/NPUA80093_113_PARAM.sfo from Warhawk) and then once again using a PC hex editor such as WinHex change the TITLE ID to match the .PKG file you wish to run and save it... in this case it's NPUB30006.
The above leads me to believe the the param.sfo that needs to be edited can be the corrent param.sfo from any PS3 game .. you just need to change the Title ID in it, so that it matches that from the PKG ... Is this correct ?
2) In relation with the above question, during the entire param.sfo process, the PKG itself remains untouched right ?
3) Finally, you mentioned:
I opened the Resistance 2 SFO in a hex editor, and highlighted the area to change.
How were you able to get the correct param.sfo for a game that still has to be released ?? If possible, could you tell me how I can get this too please ?
