Earlier this year MsKrypt1 released a multi-platform SackboyWorldUnlocker on Github, which is a Sackboy: A Big Adventure PS4 World Unlocker for those in the PlayStation 4 Scene with a Jailbroken PS4 console. :D

Download: SackboyWorldUnlocker v0.1 / GIT
This comes following the Farctool2: LittleBigPlanet File Editor / Texture Viewer, return of LittleBigPlanet PS4 Servers last fall and from the Sackboy: A Big Adventure PS4 World Unlocker

This tool allows to force unlock worlds in Sackboy: A Big Adventure on PS4. This effectively allows to fix the issue when the next world is not automatically unlocked after completing the last level of the world. Requires HEN.



Get the latest version here.


The program was tested on Windows only. Other version are not tested and might not work correctly.


How to use:

  1. Make a save BACKUP using PS4's Application Save Data Management.
  2. Get the unencrypted save file from the game. We are interested in the General file. To get the unencrypted save file use one of the available save tools like Apollo Save Tool. Refer bellow for Apollo instructions.
  3. Drag'n'drop the General save file over the program executable. Alternatively open the program and enter full file path to the General save file.
  4. Select which world to unlock. It's untested whether or not you can unlock the levels not in correct order, so the program will unlock everything before the selected world as well.
  5. The program updates the save file in place and creates an additional backup of the General save file in the same folder called General.bak. Move this file to a safe location just in case anything goes wrong.
  6. Copy the modified General save file back to the PS4.
How to restore original save file:

Either rename the General.bak to General, and replace the modified file using a save tool OR restore the save backup using Application Save Data Management.

How to get the unencypted save files using Apollo Save Tool:
  1. Go to HDD Saves.
  2. Find the Sackboy game title. If your game has title id CUSA18867, then it should be called Save Game. Need confirmation for other regions.
  3. Copy save game to USB.
How to apply the modified save file using Apollo Save Tool:
  1. Go to USB Saves.
  2. Find the Sackboy game title.
  3. Copy save game to HDD.
