Sponsored Links
90w 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.

Changelog:

  • 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.

OK, thanks for the heads up on this. In the end, this gives me the ability to cheat, which I didn't want to do (and I don't get in general why people want to, but hey that's up to them)

In the end, I erased the save file on the HD and applied my save with the resigner and it worked.

So, case in point if anyone else is having a hard time. Although when you copy it over to your harddrive it will erase what you had there previously, it still wasn't working. Erasing the original save file from your HD before copying it over with ftp or USB stick worked for me. May or may not work for other games, but it's worth trying for sure! Try this for anyone having a few problems.

This may be of use for that title, worth a try anyway: [Register or Login to view links]

Another few updates by qorner for the GT5 save game editor (aka GT5 Career Booster): [Register or Login to view links] and also [Register or Login to view links]

Gran Turismo 5 Save Editor / Gran Turismo 5 Career Booster (GT5CB)

What you get with this tool is 20 000 000 in-game credits, and A-Spec level 40.

Prerequisites

First of all, whatever you do, always backup your files! Second, you must upgrade Gran Turismo 5 (GT5) to version 2.09, run it afterwards, load your game, perform manual save from "GT Mode" and finally exit GT5.

Copy GT5 saved data from console to storage media. Tutorial can be found here: [Register or Login to view links]

Download Gran Turismo 5 Career Booster (GT5CB) from SourceForge (new and official source): [Register or Login to view links]

Note that I'm not the developer of this tool! I accidentally stumble upon it while using Google

You'll also need flat_z's pfdtool for data crypting. pfdtool can be found here: [Register or Login to view links]

If you're on OFW, as I am, Console ID can be found by following this tutorial (nope, currently there is no easier way): Using pfdtool without cfw (Borderlands 2 specific)

If you want to know how to use the lately released Save Game:

Required tools:


Otherwise, you can either use multiMAN's System Information, or PSID Patch to get your Console ID.

Download PSID Patch here: [Register or Login to view links]

Other necessary keys can be found here: pastebin.com/aqkATxXc

Modding

Download Gran Turismo 5 Career Booster (GT5CB) and extract the archive contents to a writable directory, preferably without spaces or any special characters in folder path (e.g. C:\GT5CB\ or C:\Users\Public\GT5CB\).

Copy entire BCES00569-GAME (\PS3\SAVEDATA\BCES00569-GAME) folder and its contents from storage media to ..\GT5CB\SAVEDATA\ folder. Also, put flat_z's pfdtool.exe in ..\GT5CB\Tools\pfdtool\ folder (pfdtool *.conf files will be automatically generated by GT5CB).

Run GT5CB, browse for BCES00569-GAME folder and pfdtool.exe file, fill-in all necessary keys and click on the large "Boost GT5 Career / Ruin GT5 Experience " button. Save data, as well as pfdtool configuration files will be automatically (re)created. If everything is OK, you will be prompted to either continue or cancel the save data modding. If information provided is correct, click "Yes". Once completed, copy/overwrite modified save data from your PC back to PS3 via storage media and run GT5.

Note that SFO file is not modified this way, as it is not required by GT5 loading system. Data in SFO file will be automatically updated (corrected) by GT5 itself once loaded. Happy modding!

Hi guys, i have some problems with this homebrew. When I tried to install it on Rogero 4.30 with standalone install package files app, it didn't even start the installation (error 80029564). Then I resigned it with the TrueAncestor EBOOT resigner, now it finishes the installation but it still doesn't work, it gives error 80010017 and returns to XMB. Is it possible to make it work? Here is the package.conf file I used to rebuild the .pkg:

I had problems with the CMD-based version too. With the GUI you just press the "..." button in the up-right corner, search your Savedata, which will be added below in a list. After that, right-click on the item and choose "Bruteforce...".

When it's done it will tells you the secure_file_id.

You could may post a save from a game which is not in the list, so I can test it.
