• PS3 Hacks, Software , 14.03.2012

    French Developer corwin75 has created an application that lets you edit your game saves, here is a quote from the release thread:

    Hello.
    It’s complicated you change your ps3 saves by lack of knowledge or you have simply no hex editor? The solution is very simple. PARAM Edit is a small program that I just create to modify your saves in several areas:
    - Modify the protection of saves (lock / unlock copies)
    - Make compatibility saves with your account
    - Modify the saves details
    - Change the title of the saves
    - Edit sub-title of the saves

    Sources are being modified to be especially easy to read and understand each operation.

    EXPLANATION:
    For compatibility. You need a save to make it compatible with a game and a save from your account with the same game.

    Download Original Version(French Language Only)

    Homebrew Developer TizzyT has modified the app to a loosely English based version:
    English Version

      I will taking the time to roughly translate this app now lol. I'm using Google Translate to help so its going to be very rough lol. If anyone wants to post the exact/correct translation that would be awesome. Until Corwin75 decides to make an English version I will get an English Modded version out, will be done in about an hour.
      PS: All credit still goes to Corwin75 for the program, I just want to help other users who want to use your tool .

      PS: Not sure if everything is working 100%. I only changed strings etc so everything else should work just like the french version. Also to be on the safe side always make backups of your SFOs.

      I have no idea of french, but for the translation of this screen:
      On the top you have the "target" .SFO
      At the bottom is the "source" .SFO

      What the program does is to take some values from "source".... and adds them to the "target" (more exactly, ACCOUNT_ID, PARAMS... and maybe PARAMS2)

      This is the reason you need one of your game saves games (to be used as the "source") to extract this values from it

      Its not a literall translation , but i think the idea of "source"--->"target" is more accurate




      Btw... this "trick" will not work for 90% of the game saves, the problem here is PARAM.PFD is supervising PARAM.SFO, so if you modify PARAM.SFO... the savegame will display as "corrupt" in 90% of the games

      http://www.ps3devwiki.com/wiki/PARAM.PFD

      Edit:
      Is easy to know in what games this will not work... just open the PARAM.PFD with a hex editor, and if you see inside the name PARAM.SFO (next to his "unknown" signature).... it will not work, consider this PARAM.SFO as "protected", you CANT tamper with it

      For this to work... its needed to pawn the PARAM.PFD format, and another tool to rebuild PARAM.PFD's, have fun with it because his structure is crazy

      tried this with 2k12 roster update, game loaded and it did not show the incorrect roster file error so i guess the tool did unlock it but when checking.. the rosters was not updated.

      All i know is in the ps3devwiki page i linked in my previous message (the PARAM.PFD one)... but is a mess, and my english is bad, and more important... the structure is very complicated, filled with signatures, 3 tables, and something like a "virtuall index" shared between the tables
      I hope this kind of apps will push people to break this file

      By now the only program that can manage PFD files (it seems the program can rebuild them) is the one i pointed here:

      Thanks for the hint will change it now. So the 3 buttons from top to bottom is :
      1) Target SFO
      2) Source SFO
      3) can you come up with a suggestion for the last button on that page thanks.

      Something like?:
      1) Target SFO
      2) Source SFO
      3) Rebuild target SFO

      The strings extracted from source and injected in target are related to user/console ID's (and other unknown ones inside PARAMS), so another option with a bit more text:

      3) Rebuild target using source ID's

      LOL I will never have a virus in anything I do. I am for helping people and not to mess people's computers up. I do not fall under the same category as the scum which makes malicious viruses for the soul purpose of damaging others machines or stealing private information.

      Besides this isn't my program, I only translated . So yeah next time you see something from me you can take my word for it that it doesn't contain any viruses, although I do not blame you for being cautious.

      Hi erm no offense of anything but if this program is for CFW only its kinda pointless as you can simply edit save files to work using comgenie or another FTP type application (blackbox etc.) , it does not seem to work for official firmware (maybe I'm doing something wrong?), I think at this moment in time this is only possible with xploder ultimate edition but don't quote me on that.... So what exactly is the point of this program if it does not bring any new functionality to my ps3 (not hating just saying)

      From what I understand about this app your english translation is pretty accurate, but I think it will be even more so if you go for that option someone suggested (for the compatibility tab): "target", "source" and then "make compatible using source's ID". That will make it even more understandable than the original french version.

      As for the "protection" tab, I'm not sure since I don't know much about .sfo files, so this should be confirmed by the dev behind this, but I believe it's more about "ID lock" and then "Lock" - "Unlock" than "Protect", "Unprotect". Again, maybe [MENTION=198413]corwin75[/MENTION] will soon give us a more detailed explanation that'll make the translation easier.

      LOL yeah I had a version that had the source/target but it wasn't a good translation of the original text and so I looked for someone to translate it for me.

      Here is the old version that had the source/target/rebuild buttons:

      It wasn't a translation per se, more like a clarification of what the dev actually meant (IMO...).

      Anyways, as long as people understand what it does, and if it's confirmed to work, great app! Merci [MENTION=198413]corwin75[/MENTION]!

      What does ftp programs blackbox and comgenie have to do with this save editor? Those ftp programs can't lock / unlock game saves or edit psn id's.

      No this does not require cfw to use.

      The whole point of CFW save editing is theres no need to edit any files when hacking a game save you just replace the required files with the ones you want minus the ones that store any form of psn or console ID

      you can hack locked or unlocked save files without the need of hacking on CFW using either comgenie or FTP programs (source I own a cfw ps3 and have done this myself many times, so allow n00b comments if you have no idea what you're talking about)

      And on OFW on the majority of games you will receive a "save corrupt" message using this program hence rendering it useless. Only answer to a reply if you are clued up on the scene otherwise don't bother

      Wow you should take a clue on you're own advice. The point of this program is to edit on the PC and not having to do it on the PS3 which if you where is F***ing stupid to be honest because you download the save it would be on your PC already so take hex editor out and do what you need to do.

      It makes no difference if you have cfw or ofw If you can't edit the psn ids from the save, having cfw doesn't fix this well if you use Rebug then you use Fake Save Data Owernership.

      Quote sandungas,
      Also the problem here is PARAM.PFD is supervising PARAM.SFO, so if you modify PARAM.SFO... The savegame will display as "corrupt"

      Oh and F*** you, you're an A**H***. Go outside get some fresh air come back when you can take some criticism when people question your post..

      For some reason though, nothing seems to work on cobra cfw >.<

      Haha you are clearly a n00b, if you have CFW and half a brain cell you would be aware that to hack a game save there is absolutely no need whatsoever to hex edit any files to do so, you simply replace all the files with the ones you want but leave PARAM.PFD and PARAM.SFO alone and the save simply works as these are allready tied to your console and ID, without the need of rebug. I'm sure another member would happily confirm this as you clearly don't have a clue what on earth you're talking about. So try exercise your few decaying brain cells before coming up with a clueless reply

      Yeah I'm a noob you clearly know me, what I said in my above post isn't wrong.
      Replacing the files doesn't work with all saves. When you said "The whole point of CFW save editing is theres no need to edit any files"

      Having cfw or ofw makes no difference you can replace/edit the saves on cfw or ofw and you will get the same results.

      Oh and I've been doing the replace files a long time,

      Good question. I just found it on the web and verified it was good cause the OP's link was down. I assume not because it was a mirror from another site.

      This is the reason you need one of your game saves games (to be used as the "source") to extract this values from it
      In other words, source means use as template?

      The creator of the program "Corwin75" should be able to tell you that, but I think this is only used to edit game saves so that they are compatible with your system ex: using game saves that aren't yours.

      It's very nice program, just there is a problem:it can't edit ID...i have my saves of us version of one game and i really need to open it on eu version of that game and because of pfd file editing param.sfo doesn't helps me...hope you add this feature soon cuz as far as i know it is the only program who edits pfd too, on devwiki they say the structure of pfd is unknown...

      the guy who said it can't unprotect castlevania:castlevania is not protected...just a few games like heavy rain have protection

      Thanks your hard work
