On Bruteforce 4.7.4, trying to decrypt chao garden save data for Sonic Adventure 2. However, when I pull it up, the save says "Undecryptable".

Decrypt is greyed out. Verify PFD says Console ID Hash FAILED, despite me copying this straight from my PS3. Is there something wrong with saves from a CFW PS3? I am able to use the save to set my profile in BSD.

it's part of evilnat 4.88. it's in the cfw settings/tools over the network tier. enable it, run the game save, then exit, grab the settings log from the tmp folder. it should contain the save key.

Ok, I'm still on Ferrox. Didn't know evilnat was a thing. I guess I'll work on installing that CFW

I don't think you need to bruteforce anything anymore actually. though, I've never used secure file id dumper. I don't mess with saves really at all, just know of the dumper. you've gotta access a save afaik when you boot up the game to get the key dumped.

Turned it on, entered the chao garden, exited. The logging was enabled before I did so. I see cfw_settings.log but clicking it does nothing and pressing ^ to check the options only lets me delete, not copy.

copy it to your pc.
Ok, didn't feel like setting up FTP due to other responsibilities. I found the file in the dump tool, displayed, and snapped an image of its contents.

I know you don't mess with saves, but gonna ask for others who read: What do I do with the secure file id to get the save decrypted?

Ok, Secure File ID for both the main game and the chao save (2 separate saves) are listed in the log as all Fs. I know it's possible, but it's highly unlikely.

Apollo's decryption worked. Whatever was going on with the secure file ids in the other encryption attempts, I guess Apollo just used what the PS3 already recognized, being on the PS3 itself. That's my hypothesis.

Hey mate, did you ever get to the bottom of this? Been trying for a few days to get my file working properly. Would be amazing if you can get in touch :)
