So I was messing around a few years ago with ps4 saves and just ended up actually doing something kind of. I guess i'll make this public in hopes of someone knowing what they are doing.Seeing as borderlands 3 isn't getting advanced mode with SW I wanted to make this public.

Requirements : Bruteforce 4.7.4 for PS3 and HxD

1. Open bruteforce
2. Decrypt a ps3 save with a payload (suggested save Borderlands 2 profile data)
3. Change payload to payload .bin
4. change your ps4 save to SAVE.BIN (not the actual .bin file)
5. Open your SAVE.BIN with HxD
6. Move all data from Save.bin inside of payload.bin
7. Rename Payload.bin to payload
8. Open payload in bruteforce
9. Go to your save file and you will have an extracted folder with all the save contents inside.

We were playing around in a similar fashion for xbox one saves. My only question is putting it back on the console.
Is it just reverse for putting back? And does the ps4 save work after being modded this way?

difference between xbox and ps4. xbox can't be manually transferred back by example USB as everything save wise on xbox is saved in cloud per account. PS4 has a way to save to usb and retransfer back while also having cloud saving options with PS Plus. But also although these are "decompiled" which who knows if they actually are don't seem to be able to be recompiled under the same method.

Actually this is not correct. Xbox saves are local and if online sync to the cloud. Meaning mostly duplicated to the cloud. Xbox still has local save as well. I don't know why many think it is only on cloud. If this were true then the console would be a giant paperweight without internet. It is stored locally in the game data section just as it was in the 360. You can copy that section to usb and place it back without issue.
