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 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!
