After about 20 tries(give or take one or two) I was not able to mod my save without the xbox thinking the save didnt even exist. At times it would say corrupted bla bla but other times it wouldnt even read the save as if it wasnt on my hard-drive. There was one point where i only modded the money and it still didnt work.
I wasnt using jezabeez's editor but used pur3's instead. Not sure if that means anything but Im not even gonna bother. Ive got a thread up if anyone wants to wing it for me but otherwise ill just rock this game legit.
