Sony Being Sued For Faulty PS4 Disc Drive

Sony has been taken to court over their inability to deal with a fault in some PS4 systems, the Plaintiff Dominic Moschitti states that Sony know of the fault and wants them to fix it free of charge, here is a quote from one of the sources:

Plaintiff Dominic Moschitti says a concealed defect in the Sony PlayStation 4 causes the disc drive to spontaneously eject, making it effectively useless.

 

Moschitti says Sony is fully aware of this defect but refuses to repair it free of charge.

 

The disc drive is an essential component of the PlayStation 4. Without a functioning disc drive, users can’t insert game discs, DVDs or Blu-rays.

 

According to this Sony PlayStation 4 class action lawsuit, the defect is in the circuitry between the PlayStation’s eject switch and the disc drive itself.

Steep – Snowboarding From Ubisoft

I am sure that most of you know by now that i am a huge fan of snow and skate boarding games, the last Snowboarding game i bought was SSX for the PS3, which i purchased before i decided to boycott EA, the last Skateboarding game i bought was the fucking awful Tony Hawks Skateboarding 5, which was fucking awful, i can never play Skate either as it’s made by that shitty company EA, all these reasons make me happy that Ubisoft are bringing out a Snowboarding game, not only does it have Snowboarding, it also has Skiing, Wingsuits and Paragliding, here is a trailer for the game:

[Tutorial] How to decrypt and dump usermodules

First of all i’d like to say thank you to the person who has allowed me to post this tutorial. His english isn’t perfect so he asked me to make this tutorial on his behalf. Thanks, grass skeu :)

So for this, you’ll need:

* ps4sdk precompiled

* elf-loader precompiled OR alternatively extreme-modding.de’s elf loader (found here)

* the payload source

* 1.76 console

* fat32 usb pendrive


Steps:
1- Fire up elf loader on your 1.76 console

2- Let it load all the way up to stage 5 without memory errors!

3- Compile the payload source. You can specify in between:
 

ps4KernelExecute((void*)path_self_mmap_check_function, NULL, &ret, NULL);

and
 

ps4KernelExecute((void*)unpath_self_mmap_check_function, NULL, &ret, NULL);

which module(s) you want to decrypt. if you want, you can even decrypt all modules from 1.76 Dump released a while ago! This includes elf,self,prx,sprx,sexe,sdll and eboot.bin. However, take into notice that you can only decrypt usermodules from disc or psn apps when you have loaded them and minimize them (by pressing ps button), and only from absolute path! (due to npdrm management)
I have left an example:
 

decrypt_and_dump_self("/mini-syscore.elf", "/mnt/usb0/mini-syscore.elf");

so, the elf will be written to usb0 (rightmost port), but you can specify others

4. run listener (if you want, this is optional):

socat - TCP:my.ps4.ip.here:5052

where ps4 ip is your local ip (mine is 192.168.1.72)
5. finally send payload:

socat -u FILE:path/to/DumpFile TCP:my.ps4.ip.here:5053

specifying the path to the payload and the ip.
if the payload fails to be executed with out of memory error just stabilize on stage 5 WITHOUT restarting console and try again.

Any doubts please ask.
And all credits go to grass skeu for this awesome trick :)

Don’t update to 4.05, use a bypass :)

Hey guys, i bet you’re all expecting a tutorial video haha jk jk.

 

Just wanted to continue what greg said earlier, if you believe that there will be a jailbreak or public release of the exploits in near future for firmware 4.01 then don’t update. instead use a bypass to stay online if you want online access. 

 

Roports have been confirming that the PSProxy PS4 Update Bypass by Red-EyeX32 Works with 4.05 and therefore will keep you guys online. I won’t be providing a tutorial on how to use this today but just giving you guys a heads up on ways to continue playing and wait for the exploit at the same time.

 

The tool can be found here < PSProxy.rar 4.0.0.0 > 

 

Instructions:

Press start on the utility.

Add IP and Port to the Vita/PS4.

Sign-In to PSN

Profit?

 

Enjoy guys and lets hope for a release we can all enjoy in the near future :LiebSmilie-Headbanger-mit-Gitar

PS4 Firmware v4.05 Out Now – Do Not Update

Earlier we posted about a possible exploit that has the community divided, well this weirdly timed update from Sony will throw more speculation and guessing out there among the scene, the official update from Sony apparently makes the system more stable

For those of you who believe the recent exploit, do not update your console.


And So? PS4 4.01 OFW Exploit?

This exploit has the community divided, some say its fake because the LED doesn’t go a certain way and others say it’s legit because it was showcased at a big conference, decide for yourself:
