PS4 Developer @idc released scripts that invoke the PS4 kernel to decrypt the contents of an update file and pup unpacker scripts 

PuP Decryption
 

Quote

 


pup_decrypt

A utility to invoke the PS4 kernel to decrypt the contents of an update file.

The default (hardcoded) operation is to decrypt /mnt/usb0/PS4UPDATE.PUP.

This will output a number of files (depending if a normal or a recovery update):

/mnt/usb0/PS4UPDATE1.PUP.dec

/mnt/usb0/PS4UPDATE2.PUP.dec

/mnt/usb0/PS4UPDATE3.PUP.dec

/mnt/usb0/PS4UPDATE4.PUP.dec

These decrypted updates can then be further unpacked using a tool capable of doing so.

Note

The PS4 will refuse to decrypt updates in some cases:

Versions older than the installed version (for the most part, there’s exceptions for things like beta versions).

Versions for a different product code (retail cannot decrypt test or debug updates).

 

PuP Unpacker

pup_unpack

A utility to unpack PS4 update blobs that have been previously decrypted using pup_decrypt.

Note This utility will not unpack the contents of nested filesystems. The filesystem images in updates are FAT32, exFAT, etc images and can be mounted or unpacked with other tools.

[Released] libgxm – 3D Graphics Api For PS Vita By @xerpi – PS Vita

libgxm – 3D Graphics Api For PS Vita By @xerpi

View File


The multi-talented developer @xerpi has released an api that will help in the creation of 3D games on the PS Vita, here is a quote from the source:

So after finishing this semester’s finals, I’ve got some free time, which I’ve decided to dedicate to toy around with the Vita’s 3D graphics API (aka GXM). I’ve noticed that there aren’t many 3D homebrews (other than yifanlu’s cube), and on the other side, there are very few vita hobbyist developers. I think the main reason for that is that GXM is very complex. The API is much more lower level (in the sense of bare-metalness) than OpenGL, similar to Vulkan in some ways.

 

 


 


Blu-ray Disc Java (BD-J) game “Ukko’s Journey” preview video

Demonstrating Java homebrew on the PS3.
Ukko’s Journey was originally a cellphone game developed by LuBlu Entertainment in 2008-2009. (See www.ukkosjourney.com).
In 2017 LuBlu Entertainment is porting the game to BD-J purely as a proof-of-concept project, demonstrating that homebrew for the PS3 + PS4 + Xbox One is possible with Java.
Once this project is complete, the game should run on all 3 consoles – from the same disc!

 

Here is a preview video showing the game running on a PS3.

 

 


[Released] openps3ftp v4.0, v4.0a, v4.0b – PS3

openps3ftp v4.0, v4.0a, v4.0b

Veteran developer jjolano has released three new updates for his homebrew application openps3ftp, this is his first update since August 2013, here are the changes:

v4.0

Quote

 

This is what version 3.0 should have been. However, version 3.0 was written dev_blindly since I wasn’t able to test it at all. Now that I’m able to make homebrews again, here’s a fresh release of OpenPS3FTP!

Hope it isn’t too late.

Would be great if PSL1GHT’s libsysfs wasn’t so wonky, since that will actually provide an additional performance boost over the vastly increased stability this release brings.

 

 

v4.0a

Quote

Fixed and improved a few things.

 

v4.0b

Quote

Implemented libsysfs for improved performance.

 


 


Ark Survival Nightmare – PS4 Worst Version

Ark Survival Nightmare – PS4 Worst Version

I played Ark Survival Evolved on the Xbox One for months and months, i did quite enjoy it as its a fun game and i like building shit, so when it came to the PS4 i decided to buy it and whilst it is basically the same game, it fucking sucks at times compared to the XB1 version and its all because of insane lag as you can see in this video i recorded last night:

 

 

The video paints a lag but a cope-able lag when in fact it is far when you are actually playing it, the lag is quite insane which is sad, because you can go for ages playing the game and have zero lag, then all of a sudden the next time you play it your are flooded with lag.

 

I know this is one of these games that is not yet fully released, but that is no excuse considering that it plays better on the XB1, i think i will leave the rant here, there are other annoyances, but i won’t go into them as they are nothing compared to this.
