    Hi NGU.

    I've finally found a groundbreaking method in which you can resign Game Saves using Account ID's (no Xploder involved).

    PLEASE NOTE:

    I recommend that you still buy Xploder You must login or register to view this content.

    And even better an Elite membership
    You must login or register to view this content.
    as it a great deal.

    For those of you that can't afford it... try this method.



    Here's the backstory to it all:

    I was trying to make Copy Protected Saves work on accounts which are not yet signed to an account (a Blank User). I actually wanted to use the Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions Saves (which are Copy Protected) on an account which is not assigned to any online account (so I can get the platinum ready to syncronise by simply signing into the persons account with the 100% platinum and syncing to the server).

    I however realised that this was impossible to do, as the Save was Copy Protected (meaning I could not create a Save on a Blank User and copy it on to my USB to use the PARAM.sfo) so every time I tried to use the Saves they were still telling me that the Save belonged to another User and will disable certain features in the Game.

    Eurika! I realised it was because of the PARAM.sfo contains the Account ID in which the Save works for, then it was just a matter of being able to obtain Account ID's from PARAM.sfo files in Saves and editing them in another PARAM.sfo (To make the second PARAM.sfo have the same Account ID as the first PARAM.sfo) in turn the Save would work on a Blank User.

    I put my theory to the test by downloadng various programs and trying it out, and I have done it!

    I will give an example of how this works, and give the tutorial after.

    How it works:

    Lets say you want to use a Game Save for Modern Warfare 3, for example, a God Mode Save.

    Only there's a problem, you don't have Xploder and nobody will resign for you, you're on your own and have to wait days or longer.

    DON'T FEAR!

    Following this tutorial will solve your problem! You will learn how to obtain the Account ID from your Save of MW3, and add YOUR Account ID into the Save of the God Mode Save, essentially resigning it to work on the account that your Save came from.

    The best part is that it acts much more than just a simple resign tool, you can make Copy Protected Saves work on Blank Users, you can even make your Save Copy Protected!

    *PLEASE NOTE THAT IT TOOK ME A WHILE TO FIND THIS PROGRAM AND FIGURING IT OUT ON HOW TO WORK IT, SO I DO TAKE CREDIT FOR THAT*

    Here's the tutorial:

    First you're going to need to download a program called BruteForce Save Data here:
    You must login or register to view this content.
    Or here:
    You must login or register to view this content.
    Or my personal upload here:
    You must login or register to view this content.
    Scroll down and download the one called 'BruteForce'.

    Please understand that I have a Windows 7 laptop, and the program works fine on it, so MAC Users will either have to buy a Windows computer or find alternate download for the program that runs on MAC.

    *Note there may be a mising DLL file error, to fix this you need to download Microsoft Visual Basic*
    You must login or register to view this content.
    OR
    You must login or register to view this content.

    Once you have the program downloaded and running, you're going to want to start by creating or getting any Save from the account that you want the Second Save to work for, (copy a MW3 Save or Batman Save from your main account onto your computer).

    Next you will want to open BruteForce, so do that.

    Browse and find the Save folder for your Save that you placed onto your computer.

    You must login or register to view this content.

    You will see your files from inside that folder show in the program at the bottom left.

    Right Click on PARAM.sfo and choose 'Awesome faceecrypt FPD' then choose yes.

    You must login or register to view this content.

    Then double click on the PARAM.sfo to open it.

    You will see the 'Account ID' number on the box that pops up, all you have to do is highlight and copy it.

    You must login or register to view this content.

    Then close the box, and browse to the Save that you want to work for your Account, then open it.

    Again you will see the files at the bottom left, so right click on PARAM.sfo and choose to Decrpt FPD again.

    Then Double click on the PARAM.sfo again and PASTE your account ID to replace the current one in the box.

    Then click 'Save' at the bottom and save the PARAM.sfo and overwrite the previous one.

    You must login or register to view this content.


    Finally click rebuild to re-crypt the PARAM.sfo and BAM! You have just resigned your Save!

    The best part is that there is an option to Copy Protect your Save with the tool, just a fun little feature IMO. You can even add the Account ID of a Blank User onto any Save to get it to work to get any Game ready to Syncronise without Jailbreak!

    I just wanted to share this with those who struggle to get Xploder or cannot afford it, this is a free and great little program that I use and I wanted to share it with the community.

    Thanks for reading and I hope you have a nice day! ^^

    For those who struggle with this guide, there is an alternate method here:

    What happens when you dont have the Secure file ID of the game that you are trying to resign? Ive using both, KG and Bruteforce since ive found this site and cant make that work.

    An example of that is Soul Calibur V, i canĀ“t resign You must login or register to view this content. save because of that.

    Another weird case is the one of Motorstorm Pacific Rift, the saves resigns perfectly, but when i load the game it says its corrupted.

    Thank you!

    I have a better working tutorial founded:

    For Resigning PS3 Save Data

    Step 1: Edit the global.conf and enter your console_id. (Ctrl+H)
    Step 2: Click "Set PARAM.SFO as Template" and Select "Configure Profiles" and Pick a Profile from 1 - 5
    Step 3: A Dialog Box will appear, Select "PARAM.SFO" from your save.
    Step 4: Give a Name For your Profile.
    Step 5: Bulit PARAM.SFO from template (Ctrl+B)

    For Decrypting/Encrypting PS3 Save Data

    Step 1: Edit the global.conf and enter your console_id. (Ctrl+H)
    Step 2: Copy a PARAM.SFO with your account_id as template.sfo in the folder of Bruteforce Save Data (Ctrl+T)
    Step 3: Scan the folder with the saves (the Key should be listed).
    Step 4: If the key is not available, double click on the save and select the EBOOT.ELF to bruteforce the key (use the scetool commands above to extract the ELF)
    Step 5: Once you have the secure_file_id for your game, select the following command in that order:
    Step 5a: Update Account ID and Copy Parameters
    Step 5b: Patch SFO: Remove Copy Protection
    Step 5c: Decrypt PFD
    Step 5d: Update PFD
    Step 5e: Encrypt PFD
    Step 5f: Verify PFD

    The buttons are placed in that order... so it is easy to select:

    Update Account ID -> Patch SFO -> Decrypt PFD -> Update PFD -> Encrypt PFD -> Verify PFD

    I've tried the You must login or register to view this content. and the Motorstorm Apocalypse Instant Plat and neither of them work. I keep getting Data is corrupted errors yet I follow the guide 100%.

    EDIT: Also tried You must login or register to view this content. and it doesn't work either. I may just give up with this one and buy Xploder.
