To quote: Hello everyone, i created this little app it took me about 15 minutes.
This app can unlock another persons save by opening your param.sfo from your save and then opening their param.sfo from their save, it will then create a new param.sfo that you can use to overwrite the other param.sfo in the other users save that you'd like to use.
this app may not work for some or most games, but i know it works on raging blast 2 =D
p.s. i used satanicat's save guide as a basis for creating the app
UPDATE: i've added a few error checks to the app
UPDATE 2/8/11: i've added a few tweaks to the UI, also i've made the app copy your gameID from yourSFO to the otherSFO if the id in otherSFO is not the same, hopefully this might help games from other regions work.
UPDATE 2/9/11: i've added a save file dialog, in other words, you shouldnt get any file errors now, you can choose the name and where to save the modded param.sfo also theres a new feature enabling you to copy your console id to the modded param.sfo users can try this if the default settings wont work.

just what i need, after my naruto ninja storm 2 game save froze at autosaving and got corrupted and i had to back to start again, it will save me some time. i hope it will work for naruto ninja storm 2.
Hmm... usability isn't the biggest step you took in mind when developing this app :P. there are 2 load buttons haha ^^. (sorry just received my Usability book for high school... Juck 250 pages PURE text )
Anyways. Savegames that are copy protected... can they be copied with this as well ?
EDIT: lol i just read the post above me ... don't mind answering again
You can backup locked save games. Just FTP into the PS3 and transfer them to your PC. A little info on how this works.
When you transfer save games via FTP from your PC to your PS3 they won't show up on the XMB.
Now technically there's no way to copy them back to the PS3 via the Copy function on the XMB as it will give you the "This file is copy protected error" but the way around that is start a new game and create a save file so that it is now shown on the XMB, then transfer the copy protected save file via FTP to your PS3 overwriting that new save you created then you're all set.
This looks promising. I've been creating saves on HDD to match offline saves. I then was over-writing all files except for the PARAM.SFO file. This works almost the same.
What we need is a PS3 file resigner. Like we have for the 360 in Modio. I guess an app like this would be okay too if it can handle saves of all different types. It's too much of a pain to deal with getting offline saves to work right now. Hopefully, more will come out if this application or an actual PS3 file resigner.
But, we need an option for save files in retail mode more than Debug mode. Not nearly as many users install/use Debug FW. The user base for FW is on retail for the most part and that's the area we need in regards to a save unlocker/resigner.
