Apollo Save Tool is an application to manage save-game files on the PlayStation 3.
The apollo-ps3 homebrew app allows to download, unlock, patch and resign save-game files directly on your PS3.
- Easy to use: no crypto-key configuration or advanced setup needed.
- Standalone: no computer required, everything happens on the PS3.
- Save files listing: quick access to all the save files on USB and the internal PS3 HDD (+ file details)
- Save SFO unlocking: allows the user to remove the copy-lock flag, enabling transfer of Copying Prohibited save files.
- Save PFD resigning: allows the user to resign save files made by other users and consoles.
- Save downloading: access to an Online Database of save-game files to download straight to your PlayStation.
- Automatic settings: auto-detection of PSID and Account-ID settings.
No special setup is needed. Just download the latest apollo-ps3.pkg package and install it on your PlayStation 3. On first run, the application will detect and setup the required user settings.
Using the application is simple and straight-forward:
- Move UP/DOWN to select the save-game file you want to patch, and press X button. The patch screen will show the available fixes for the file. Select the patches and click Apply.
- To see the item's details, press Square. It will open the context menu on the screen. Press O button to return to the list.
- To reload the list, press Triangle.
- Press left (L1/L2) or right trigger buttons (R1/R2) to move pages up or down.
- USB saves: your files must be placed on /dev_usb000/PS3/SAVEDATA/ or /dev_usb001/PS3/SAVEDATA/.
- HDD saves: files will be scanned from /dev_hdd0/home/000000XX/savedata/, where XX is the current User ID.
The application also provides direct access to the Apollo online database of save-game files for PlayStation 3 games. These usually offer additional features such as completed games that can save you many hours of playing.
Currently, the list of available games and files is limited, but the project aims to add more save-games shared by the community.
Note: Downloaded save files must be resigned using Apollo before loading them in your games.

Why is it called Apollo?
Apollo was the twin brother of Artemis, goddess of the hunt. Since this project was born using the Artemis-GUI codebase, I decided to respect that heritage by calling it Apollo.
