Exclamation Unlimited Cash For Skills Exploit

EXTREMELY effective way to get the skills easily!

OK, I know I'm gonna have a BUNCH of hate for this from people who completed the game legitimately, but just to get in there first, this is an achievement site, primarily used to give people an easier time accomplishing that directive.

Now, I found this out entirely by accident, but tested it out several times to see if the glitch was consistent, and it was. Plus I haven't found anything about this anywhere else on the net, so would appreciate a sticky to help out as many people as possible. =)

1) It definitely helps if you own several properties before attempting this.
2) Leave your game running for an hour or more, so your 'hourly' income gets delivered to your bank transfer on your phone several times.
3) DO NOT transfer the money from your bank, but make sure you have the '1' in the botom left corner of it's box.
4) Go into any side mission you like, it doesn't matter which one.
5) Once the mission starts, withdraw the funds from your bank (I personally had 130K to work with!), and spend every dollar of it on whatever skills you need to unlock.
6) Once you've spent all your funds, press start and go to 'retry mission'. It will say something about 'losing all your progress made since the start of the mission'. Click the option that agrees with this.
7) Once the mission starts again, open your phone. You'll see that your bank transfer isstill there to withdraw again, but if you go into your skills page, all the skills you unlocked will still be unlocked, meaning unlimited cash!

Unfortunately you can't buy properties or use the gun shop whilst in missions, so this can only be used for skill unlocks, but it will make that 1000/1000GS that little bit easier!
Feel free to add this to the Achievement Guide too!

Edit: Many thanks to iBuzz7s (GT: Why So Jealous), for making this video showing the method in action! =)

Thank you very much! =) I did think of making a video, but without a capture card, thought I'd get more negative than positive feedback lol! Will be sure to include the video when done, if you ladd the link here afterwards!

Wow, this is a ridiculous exploit. Props to you for finding it though. Maxing out all the skills to the point to which you're invincible turns the entire game into Easy mode.

Good find man. It's not a competitive multiplayer game so exploits aren't ruining the game for anyone so you shouldn't get any hate for this. Just wish I hadn't finished the game mere hours before reading this haha.

I'm 97% positive that I've stopped in a Gun Shop and Upgraded/Bought Ammo whilst in the middle of a mission.

Correct me if I'm wrong.

EDIT: Nevermind. Thought he meant Main Story Missions, and not Activities.

Nice thanks, I'll use this on the "comedy" save file I have for the second option decisions (blowing up the tower, doing Gangstas In Space etc)

I did another trick before completing all the activites once I finished the main missions.

I connected a wired controller and leave the system on for a few hours to get more cash with the hourly income when I was doing other things (like using my computer or watching TV).

Nice exploit. I just started playing this game to get ready for Saints Row 4 and will try this trick out to buy my skills. Thanks!

Tried this method as I followed it exactly however it doesn't work for me unless I'm doing it wrong. After I activate a side mission, I withdrawn the bank transfer and did the upgrades then I retry the mission, the bank transfer disappeared. What am I doing it wrong?

Never mind, I looked at my current money. I misunderstood, it only work on hourly income you make. That's why I only made 3k hourly income which is too low.

Nice find with this one. Unfortunately I have already unlocked all the skills in the game by just playing normal.
