Step Two - Decryption
Now run the Skyrim PS3 Toolkit GUI.exe and drag in your save folder into the left box (decryption). Text should appear to confirm the gamesave has been decrypted.
Go into your save folder and open the file "SYS-DATA" in an hex editor. If the decryption is successful you should see your character name / time played / locations and Race at the top of the file as seen below:
NOTE: You can replace your decrypted save with ANY pc gamesave if you wish to replace your save with something different. If you do this, simply rename the PC save to SYS-DATA and replace yours. Then you can skip step 3 and on to step 4.
Step Three - Modding
Ok, so now you have a decrypted PS3 save which can be simply loaded up on PC by adding the file extension - .ess
Once loaded up you can easily mod using console commands. Check the 2 links below for endless possibilities.

You can now rename you .ess gamesave back to SYS-DATA and overwrite your original decrypted save in your gamesave folder. This is now ready to be encrypted back to PS3.
You can now simply copy your gamesave back to PS3 and load it up.
