23w ago - 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.
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.

this tool is just for cheaters. if you are not able to make a backup of your saves, i don't know how you beat games!? even if the programmer has done his job really good, i don't like to see something like that on ps3.
go and buy a xbox or pc, than you can cheat or mod game saves as long as you want, but please not on the ps3. theres also a service called PS+, where you can load your saves into the sen cloud. please don't tell me yet that PS+ is too expensive or something like that, cause it only costs 50 euros a year and thats like nothing.
don't get me wrong, but if you cannot remember your account, i don't know what you are doing wrong? it is only for trophy cheaters and cheaters itself. i see people downloading 100% saves and mod them to fit to their accounts and are finally proud that they have everything unlocked.
what a sad gamer community nowadays. sorry for my words but i am an oldschool gamer and never liked cheaters or tools to cheat.
