    Default is it possible to modify ps3 save files?

    I have been thinking about this for the last couple nights.
    is it possible to modify a ps3 save file? would it have to be done with a hex editor? is a modified save file usable on a non-cfw console?

    Saves are signed so idk if this is possible on OFW Maybe it depends what you intend to do, if you want to hack trophies I think a database rebuild is required.
    Aldostools has a bruteforce save data tool (think it can use game genie cheats), and there are probably some other tools that are game specific (like GTA V maybe).

    Modding saves never really interested me tbh, but I seem to recall seeing something about modding saves to add inventory items to Skyrim or another Bethesda game like that.
    Came across it when I was investigating adding mods to TES/Fallout games on PS3 before I had CFW (I was using 4.70 OFW backup injection exploit).


    Edit:
    Found a save resigner that might work, not really sure if it'll work on current OFW though (you can only test I guess, I can't atm as the only PS3 I have set up right now is my CFW). Think it only lets you use cheats but I'll upload and post tonight at some point.

    I was mostly wanting to mess with my GT 5 save so I could get the A-spec races marked as complete(and get the rewards from it).
    I have ps3 tools that has a brute force save tool but when clicking on it it doesn't launch anything.

    You might need .net framework and possibly vb5. I know some of the tools require some extra stuff but I installed it on my desktop over a year ago now.

    yeah was missing the vb5 brute force tool works but it's not what I needed it looks like hex editing is the solution but without know what the values are of what I want to modify I'm out of luck.

    Did you look at the resigner I posted? It says in the info it can resign saves to any region and any account. See if you can find a save that unlocks everything and resign it to your account.

    already tried finding one all I found was some for the prologue edition I also don't really want to go that route as I'd lose all my cars and custom made tracks.

    Is there a trophy for clearing the A-spec races?

    I'd be wary of anything that will trigger earning a trophy earlier than possible, you could get flagged. Get flagged on 3 or so games and you get kicked from leaderboards iirc.
    Probably not as risky as trying to use CFW online of course.
