Basically, just don't use cheats, if you're going to save the game, otherwise you'll be risking not being able to unlock the Cheevs.

I really don't recommend it, although you can create a new save file, and try it, see if it works, and what not.

If you save the game, they are blocked for good, I would assume.

Which acheivementsare you talking about? Becauee I've not seen any achevements stopping you from using cheats to get it.

I think it may be impossible to get those achievements even if you don't save I did them not knowing it would block achievements and decided to spawn a helicopter and after I learned the achievemts were blocked I later started a whole new campaign from the start and without any cheats survived 12 minutes on a 6 star warning lvl and didn't get the achievement I think if there is a way you would have to delete all previous campaign progress but I do not recoment this unless you can save it to a memory unit

Don't Delete it.. put it on a memory stick/flash drive or transfer it to another HDD or to your desktop via transfer then if this plan doesn't work you always have a backup copy of your game save

That could more than likely work!.. i have 2 game saves one has all the missions completed and cheats 5000 times or something but i can still get all the achievements except Walk Free that achievement is hard to glitch even if you start a new game save

tried that, doesnt work, i think you'd have to go in and modify game files or something. tried to talk to rockstar about this and got no where.

If you cheated, then Save the game, load it again and obtain the Achievement. Just make sure you will NOT use any cheats or the Achievements will be blocked again.

They are blocked for that game save only, You can have a fully completed game save with cheats activated and then simply make a new one and do the tasks which are 'blocked' you want to earn achievements/trophies for

Basically Make a rubbish (fake) game save just for these achievements:

486-555-0150 Advanced weapons (Blocks Cleaned the Mean Streets)

486-555-0100 Poor weapons (Blocks Cleaned the Mean Streets)

267-555-0100 Remove wanted level (Blocks One Man Army and Walk Free)

362-555-0100 Restore health (Blocks Cleaned the Mean Streets, Finish Him, One Man Army, and Walk Free)

482-555-0100 Restore health and weapons (Blocks Cleaned the Mean Streets, Finish Him, One Man Army, and Walk Free)

359-555-0100 Spawn an Annihiliator (Blocks One Man Army and Walk Free)

Once you have completed these achievements then you can use the cheats when and where you like.. The game will just say 'Cheat Activated' once you have the achievement on a game save somewhere on your HDD.. The only cheat to be aware of is Walk Free that one is hard to glitch even with a new game save.

No no no, if you achieve the achievements/trophies first, then do the cheat, it will say it is blocking that trophy but once you save and load again, it will say: trophies available
