[Tutorial] How to use someone else's PS3 Game Save. [Various Methods]
Liberating Your PS3 Game Save
Method 1 - Pseudo Save Resigning
Step 1 : You have to be on CFW to perfrom these steps. Open PARAM.SFO in any Hex Editor (i.e HxD, Hex Workshop, Ultra Edit and etc.). It does not matter which hex editor you use because all can represent data in raw and have copy/paste/find options which are sufficient.
Step 2 : The "Account ID" which identifies Your user account and PSN. The Account ID always starts at (0x140) and always have 16 bytes and the length is 10.
Step 3 : Replace it with your values and you have to do it twice. First at 0x140. The second offset address is somewhere in the file. Use Search and use the original value to perform a search and replace it. The address of 2nd "Account ID" is constant only with the same game save title, it's different for different games.
Step 4 : The Second ID is "console id" which identifies Your console (don't mislead it with IDPS). It also have 16 bytes and also is not on constant offset.
Step 5 : Third ID is user number account (for example: for "dev_hdd0/home/00000001/" will be 01)). In the example above, it is 48. There are in two position that 48 is.
Step 6 : You can't simply copy back your save using XMB. It will most likely give you an error. You have to FTP back to your save folder and overwrite the files.
Note : The method works most of the time but could result in corrupted saves. If the game is design to regenerate a new save, it usually creates a new working save.
Method 2 - Fake Save Data Owner
Info : Only available in Debug FW or Rebug's CFW.
Info : Allows use of save data from other users and displays a warning message at every load/save during the game. Once a save data has been saved with this features activated, that save couldn’t be read with this function deactivated.
Off : deactivate the Fake Save Data Owner function.
On : activate the Fake Save Data Owner function.
Note : There is a notification of the "Caution: Fake Save Data Owner On" every-time when any game is saving. It can be very annoying.
Method 3 - Changing Your PS3's Console ID. WARNING: May cause RSOD if done wrongly.
Step 1 : Use FTP to transfer a file name xRegistry.sys from your CFW PS3 to your PC (located at /dev_flash2/etc/)
Step 2 : Useing Hex Editor application to open a file named PARAM.SFO from any of your save data. Go to offset 140 you'll see your PSN account serial in a 16 digits format, copy that 16 digits and paste it somewhere (notepad or something). Look at Method 1.
Step 3 : Open xRegistry.sys with the xRegistry editor (I recommend you to BACKUP the file before you edit it)
Step 4 : Now you have to edit the following fields:
Note : Now you suppose to be able to share your save data (that locked to PSN ID) between the 2 PS3s like they're the same machine. You can also hack the game with cheat PKG or other solutions on CFW PS3 and then transfer the save to OFW PS3 and continue collecting trophies with hacked saves.

To people who ise Fake Save data owner better back up all your saves before using it . If i remember correct if you turn it off all your saves will be corrupt & you cant even use them on another PS3 even if you try & resign them with xploder ,etc That is what is good about being on REX 421 = turn on "FAKE PLUS" AKA-"Fake PlayStation Plus" backup all your saves at once :) Then restore them all at once . I luv that 4xx feature ,that is worth updating for me being i copy all saves to all PS3s with only 1 save back up ..

I like the guide thank you for sharing.:)
Thanks for the info but using Flatz tools are a bit complex...
Very helpful tuts bro & working 100%..... Thx ;-)
I successfully able to use my friends save for a game using Method #1 but my PS3 keeps freezing every now & then but stil m not sure if tis was the sole purpose of freezing.
Also wen I used his save & opened game for first time it asked me to update to the latest patch wired ting was I was already haveing the latest patch no wich the system asked me to update.
EDIT: the game freezing & asking to update even thou i had the latest update was not bcoz of this but latest multiman is causing problems :x :x

I will definitely add a guide using Flatz tools but not at the moment. It is not streamlined yet to the point everyone can use it. Furthermore, commercial method is way to simple to use. @aldostools 's new brutefoce save tool looks amazing. Once it gets more polished and resign function is added, i will updated the tutorial. :)
