    Awesome to see the PS4 scene progressing well, heres the latest news:

    Developer Wildcard has updated his kernel dumper for the PS4. The tool supports firmware 4.05, 4.55, and 5.05.
    For those of you interested in digging into the PS4 Firmware, you’ll want to have a look into this tool which lets you dump the PS4 kernel for further analysis. This includes, but is not restricted to, looking for vulnerabilities in the firmware. (And if that’s your thing, you’ll probably want to have a look at Belf, the recently released ida pro loader for PS4 Elfs)
    Since some people were apparently having issues dumping the kernel through the original technique of a network socket, Wildcard has added direct support for dumping on the usb drive.
    There’s no compiled payload release though, so you’ll have to build the payload yourself from source.

    Great news for me as i have a PS4 on the 5.50 firmware:

    Linux loader for PS4 FW 5.05 has been released and it’s fully working. Unlike last time this release has everything you need to run it and it’s not a WIP.


    • @HackInformer informs us via Twitter, that the WIP project for pushing up Linux working on later PS4 firwmare is now completed, and those running v5.05 can now enjoy loading up the 'other os' that Sony has not supported since the early days of their PS3 console!
      How to use

      For now, only some PS4 FAT models are supported, see the list here.

      You need a FAT32 formatted USB drive plugged in on any PS4’s USB port with the following files in the root directory: bzImage and initramfs.cpio.gz. You can download them here.

      Then you will need to send the payload (PS4-Linux-Loader.bin) to your PS4. For that go to your PS4 web browser, go to darbness.com/ps4 and send the payload to your PS4 using netcat or other.. (You can also use my tool: PS4 Payload Sender).

      PS4 owners with 5.05FW can now try different versions of Linux on the PS4 with this release but you will still need to compile video driver for it. I recommend trying out PSXITARCH Linux as it has everything already set up for you. If you are on FW 4.05 or 4.55 don’t update until the other stuff gets released here soon.

    Heres news that excites me as i have a PS4 on v5.05 firmware:

    Good news from @SpecterDev for the PS4 scene!
    Within the next few weeks there will be a PS4 5.05 full stack release including tools for homebrew development. Some other tools will be dropped as time goes on. Don’t update your <= 5.05 consoles if you care about homebrew. Hope to see cool stuff soon

    Some nice Custom firmware for PS4 News:

    #Mira_Project is live now Thanks to all of the hard work from #OpenOrbis_Team, you all know who you are

    That simple tweet above by @Abkarino set off a chain of fire thru all the PlayStation scene websites, and here is the full details:
    The Mira Project is the result of the hard work from the OpenOrbis team. We believe in quality over quantity releases. There are numerous components to the project and each one will be explained below:

    • Firmware
      Previously known as MiraHEN, this has been expanded into a full expansion custom firmware
    • Tools
      There are many tools included in the Mira project and they are listed out below:
      • newlib-ps4
        This is the libc implementation ported for PS4. It's a pain in the ass to compile, just take the pre-built binaries seriously.
      • ld-ps4
        This is the linker to be used with newlib-ps4 to create Orbis compatible ELF files, or you could use CrazyVoid's elfFixupTool
      • MiraLib
        This is the communications library that will be specialized for operation with the Mira firmware.


    User Guide - The users guide is found at USERS.md yamsayin' check it out, if you want instructions on how to build, install, and use the firmware once it has been installed on the console with any of the methods described within.

    Special Thanks To - We want to give a special shout out to these people in no particular order:

    Mira FAQ

    • IT WILL be LOST on reboot
    • It's NOT a traditional CFW But a Framework
    • you NEED a Webkit and Kernel exploit to port and use it
    • it's VERY similar to Xposed Framework for Android (in terms of functionality)
    • Just like HEN it survives rest mode
    • NOT 100% uploaded
    • Target is v5.01 but its being ported to v5.05
    • Could be backported to v4.55, but not worth since v5.05 will be here soon!

    Heres good news for those with exploitable PS4 Consoles:

    As www.PSXHAX.com points out belong in their quoted news story, the future of exploiting our v4.55 PlayStation 4 consoles has gotten a bit more exciting, as now it might be possible soon to regain access to PSN and online games on our older PS4 consoles, time will tell.
    Previously, we learned for PSN access on jailbroken PS4 consoles beyond spoofing the version string you'll also need to spoof index.dat and X-Passphrase according to scene devs, and today PlayStation 4 developer @zecoxao updated his Github repository with a PS4 port of the PS3 index.dat decrypter called UnDat from fail0verflow.

    While PlayStation scene developer Joonie reminds us "most people will just have to forget about PSN for hackable PS4 and likely need two consoles for both general daily gaming and homebrewing" it will be interesting to see what the future holds for PlayStation 4 spoofers and online games.

    Heres some PS4 News for fans of Silent Hill:

    P.T. was to the big blockbuster game to regain the glory days of 'Silent Hills' on PlayStation, but it got cancelled and then Konami tried to wipe it out for history as if it never existed in the first place, but lucky for us its been saved in dark corners of web and now we can enjoy trying out the game that will never be on our PS4 consoles that are running the popular exploitable v4.05 or v4.55 firmwares.
    Since PT demo isn't the easiest thing to find for your PS4, so I figure I would put it up for everyone to get since it is just a Demo.
    This DEMO is made for PS4's running either FW 4.05 or 4.55 and using the HEN/Debugger exploit.

    Released for the PlayStation 4 on 12 August 2014 as a free download on the PlayStation Network, P.T. served primarily as an interactive teaser for the game Silent Hills, a canceled installment in the Silent Hill series. After the cancellation, Konami removed P.T. from the PlayStation Store and eliminated re-installing the game, a decision that later spawned criticism and fan efforts to allow P.T. to be re-downloaded.

    Someone loves linux in a big way, heres more Linux News:

    It is still a 'work-in-progress' project, so don't rush and update from v4.55 firmware just yet, as payloads, and exploit hosts need updating, but scene developer @C0rpVultra says its occurring and has launched his WIP GITHub page, and is busy putting together the final bytes.
    hackinformer said:
    It’s just a matter of time and being patient for things to happen on FW 5.01 as plenty of developers told us to stay on that FW if we cared about homebrew. Well, hopefully, today we’ll be able to finally run Linux on FW 5.01 with a little bit of compiling thanks to Vultra.

    Its always great to see homebrew being released on consoles and especially if you dont have to rip them to bits, heres the release notes:

    RetroGamer is back with yet another one of his great emulator packages this time for the PS4 consoles!
    Hi guys, following my last update regarding the topic of a GameBoy Emulator for PS4 here is an early PS4 GBEmu Beta. Still many things to fix. Even the sound is ok under Windows Unity Editor, it does not work well in PS4. It looks to be a problem of frequencies.

    Here is the PKG for downloading. I've included just one ROM which is Super Mario Land 2. Some more GB / GBC ROMs can be found courtesy of SCORPION1399 below:

    Download: ED1685-NPXX51385_00-0000000000000000-A0100-V0100.pkg (58.8 MB) / GAMEBOY_1483_ROMS.rar (170.2 MB) / GBC_1005_ROMS.rar (GameBoy Color ROMs Pack - 462.8 MB)

    There are 2 main things still under development:

    1. First one is File Manager integration to load ROMS. This is easy to do using the File Manager you could see some days ago. To complete this task it would be great some of you could do a big package of all ROMS as he can and make me available for download it. I will add it to the compilation.
    2. Second one will be fix the sound issue.

    Hope you enjoy.

    New for PS4:

    Soon, hopefully we will see nice PSXITARCH for v5.01, but for now the nice scene folks over at PS3ITA have assembled, basically the best 'Linux Distro' you can run on your exploitable v4.05 or v4.55 PS4 consoles, so good it runs Kodi, RetroArch and More!
    UPDATE of 05/05/18: Fixed the name “Arch Linux”, added English translation (thanks to “AdZx”) and a trick to improve the FPS in some games and emulators.

    Psxitarch is a linux distribution for PS4 based on Arch Linux, developed to be light, with low resource usage and easy to install.

    It includes the graphics drivers (radeon drm, radeonsi) needed to use 3D hardware video acceleration, kernel 4.14.14, support for * bluetooth, * wi-fi, ethernet and USB sound cards.

    INSTALLED APPLICATIONS

    • Window manager: jwm
    • Terminals: lxterminal, xterm
    • Web Browser: midori
    • Network Manager: wicd
    • File manager: pcmanfm
    • Emulators/Games: steam, retroarch (MULTI EMU), mupen64plus (N64), snes9x (SNES), epsxe (PSX), ppsspp (PSP)
    • Utilities: playonlinux (Gui for wine), leafpad (Text editor), htop (System monitor), xreader (PDF viewer), xarchiver (Archive manager), blueman (Bluetooth manager)
    • Multimedia: gpicview (Img viewer), xnoise (Audio/video player)
    • Other..

    NOTES ON APPLICATIONS

    If you have installed a new program and want to make it show up in the main menu go in Jwm Config and select Updates Menu

    If you want to start Steam use the voice Steam (Native), only if a game does not work use Steam (Runtime).

    In Retroarch you will find only a few preinstalled cores (mame, genesis, turbograf and nes), you can install others by starting a retroarch and going to Online Updater and download cores. Some cores may require bios to function properly, copy them into /home/psxita/.config/retroarch/bios.

    For those who ask, we have not included dolphin-emu in the distro because the recent versions in the repo and git do not work properly on PS4. We have compiled an old version and it seems to work with a simple “workaround” (you have to start dolphin together with glxgears), if you are desperate we can let you have it.

    Kodi, has not been included in the distro for reasons of space, but you can easily install it and it should work without any modification.

    IMPROVES FPS STABILITY IN SOME GAMES/EMULATORS

    Open a terminal, write in fglxgears leave the program run, start the game/emulator you want play.

    AUDIO

    Audio via HDMI is not working but there are various ways to get around this

    • Use a USB sound card (found at a euro on ebay)
    • Streaming via bluetooth (if working) audio (you can use bluetooth speakers or headphones)
    • Use the Dualshock 4 (or the Nacon Revolution) connected via USB with a pair of headphones

    *WIFI/BLUETOOTH

    The wifi or/and the bluetooth may not work on some PS4 or be unstable, the reason is not yet clear (does not seem to depend on the model of PS4)

    COMPATIBLE PS4 MODELS

    Psxitarch supports all PS4 models except PS4 PRO.
    On PS4 PRO the 3D hardware acceleration does not work, you will be relegated to that software, the reason you can find it here:
    http://www.ps3ita.it/forum/post43087.html#p43087

    INSTALLATION:

    Requirements:

    • A USB device (3.0 recommended) formatted in FAT32 of a size no less than 12GB
    • Hub usb (optional)
    • Keyboard
    • Mouse
    • The payload to start linux: Download per fw 4.55Download per fw 4.05
    • The bzImage (kernel): Download md5: 85d3a15a22380591f5519122f436c7ba
    • The initramfs: Download md5: a3e4d2e6a15fea750ed4e8cccacfa112
    • The psxitarch.tar.xz file (the distro): Download md5: 26bae18ccc2e2173109a7fd954657c08

    IMPORTANT!!
    The USB device that you will use will be completely formatted, all the data will be deleted!!

    1. Copy the initramfs, the bzImage and the psxitarch.tar.xz file to the root of the USB device
    2. Connect the USB device to the PS4, if you have connected other USB devices disconnect them (you must have only one USB device connected)
    3. Start the exploit
    4. Start the payload
    5. Wait a few seconds, the screen should go black and then the rescueshell screen will appear
    6. Connect the keyboard, write: exec install-psxitarch.sh (the keyboard layout is set to US, to write the dash you have to use the key ')
    7. Wait until the distro is installed (you should see a long list of files that are copied to the USB), the installation time varies from USB to USB (if you are crazy enough to install the distro on USB 2.0 it should take about 25 minutes)
    8. After the installation the distro should start by itself and show you the login screen, if it doesnt start, write exec start-psxitarch.sh (from the next restart the distro should start alone, you will not have to write anything)
    9. On the login screen, enter your username psxita and password changeit
    10. Enjoy

    THANKS!

    We want to thank with all our heart those who have contributed and continue to contribute to the development of Linux on PS4
