Hi,

I have backed up my save games on my previous ps4 which i owned in 2018.
I sold it off in 2020.

Recently i bought a Jailbroken PS4 and would like to transfer my Horizon Dawn Complete Edition save games into the fakepkg version of the Horizon Dawn Zero game.
How do i transfer the undecrypted save file to the jailbroken version of the game?

Please help as i dont want to start all over again. I have played 30 hours on the game on my unmodded ps4.
i tried modded warfare's method, but it doesnt mention save games which are decrypted.

I think it's scecore and samu that are responsible for this. I gave someone a decrypted version of scecore from 5.05 to make it work on 9.00, since I had mine decrypted and on my pc. samu is the security processor, so everything seems to go through it security wise. and, the security for saves is like the rest, pfs or protected file system.

btw, iirc, samu stands for secure assets management unit. I think they took it one step forward with the ps5 based on discord information.

the ps5 security uses something called TPM, which I'm not sure what that is exactly, which is added security on top of a samu like processor.

Could always look for a completed save game file to use instead. Although you may need to purchase Save Wizard to resign the save file making it work on your jailbroken ps4. Its a handy save editor tool I was able to decrypt my FF7 Remake save files from ps4 to work on the PC version continuing my progress. Its not compatible to ps5 saves, but you can still transfer edited ps4 saves to ps5 games if it allows you, which FF7 Remake does.

yeah, save wizard may be the only way, but I'm not really sure how that works beyond it using a server side way of licensing, so I assume you have to be online when you do one of these transfers. it's also $60, which may or may not be worth it for one save, but you have three slots iirc, so you can sell the other two to make it cheaper, I guess.

I'm not sure which save he's using, one that's been exported or one copied from the hdd. You could try it, report back results
Im backed up my non jail break ps4 same games into an usb before selling it. I tried to use Apollo save tool to transfer the files to my jailbroken ps4 which has HDZ CE version with different region from the saves i have.but it doesnt seem to work. Or am i doing it wrong?

HZD CE and HZD are two different game under different ID.

It can be done.. It does not matter what version of game you have. As long as its the same game, you can transfer the files. Look at modded warfare youtube channel

They count as two different game as they are two different ID, Im pretty sure even if you resign it with save wizard it won't work since it is two different games.

The MW youtube page has a video of him doing this, though. He took a save from a base version of a game and transferred it into a collectors/deluxe/gold/definitive edition. I personally have done this with saves from different versions with completely different ID.

That's the video, he's doing it with the exact games the OP is talking about. I may have misunderstood what OP is trying to accomplish, though. I'm not sure why you'd transfer a save from the complete edition into a lesser version, if that is what OP is trying to do. I thought he was talking about moving his save TO the complete edition. My mistake there.
