  1. sorry for the late one, happy birthday mate. hope you had a good one
  2. nice @ConsoleHax
  3. just realized... fml haha. was in a mad rush aye. just fixed it, if you would like to fix front page on too it should be the right format XD
  4. Similar to the last tutorial posted.... This tutorial will teach you how to fix one of the most common issues with the BD drive on the PS4 not injecting or ejecting discs... As usual, there is a video below for those who would like to watch and listen, and a write up underneath for those who cannot watch or simply do not want to. So this is for you people who don't know how to fix one of the most common issues when the ps4 will not inject/eject discs. so lets start Firstly you need to get to the inside of the system. so turn PS4 upside down, and remove the 3 security screws at the back of the system, holding the bottom cover plate on. (for fat ps4) Once removed, it should be easy to remove the cover by lifting back up first and then pull it off the front After this there are many screws on the boarder of the chassy, remove all security screws you see on the chassy, then there are 2 philips head screws at the back in the power supple, remove them too. Gently pull out power supply by lifting the right oriented side if you have the back of the ps4 facing you, then lift it gently up while left side may come loose a bit, then put the right side down and lift the left until it comes off prongs, be careful not to break the cable coming out of the power suply, you can easily just remove this during the replacement of the drive Next you want to make sure there are no more screws holding the bluray drive in place, there is 1 normal philips head screw at the top which holds it in place, (top being front) just remove that one and then remove the ribbon cable and power cable which are connecting to the drive from the mainboard. the drive should now come out with a bit of encouragement. Now turn the drive upside down so you can see the mecchanism which injhects and ejects the discs... what you have to do is remove the 3 screws holding it onto the bottom of the drive, and then there is a tab in place where there is no screw present where you need to gently lift the back plate off and pull it out of there... Inside the drive you will see 2 blue rollers next to there the disc goes in, there should be a white piece in the middle of them joining together. If there is not then you will have to look around the drive as it has most likely fallen out. Once found you must lodge it back in between the two rollers (be patient, this may take some time on first try) Once done just reverse the disassembly process and give it a try. WARNING! This may not fix all issues especially if your daughterboard is damaged. if you would like any help to see if it might help please post image of your daughterboard and what is going wrong with the ps4 in comments down bellow and i will make a judgement on it and tell you what i think you should do. i am also not responsible if you purchase a replacement drive and it does not work for whatever reason. i will help you diagnose the issue but if you do not take necessary precautions to make sure you need a new drive it is your fault. also be careful of sellers on ebay, some might not be very good. Good luck guys
  5. Me too buddy, i wish i could re-marry the motherboard on my ps4 with a new daughter-board. but oh well, such is life, until this new exploit that's getting hyped comes out
  6. Hi Guys. Back again with another tutorial. YES, you will need to purchase a new Bluray drive for this tutorial If you guys have every had any issues with the Bluray drive and you don't know what to do anymore, you may have tried various different things, or you just don't trust yourself with any other methods. This is about the simplest method you can find to fix most issues that can arrise around the Bluray drive. There is a video below which shows you how to change the BD drive, otherwise there's a bit of a written tut under the video. Let me know if you need anymore help. Good luck Ok so if you can't listen or watch the video for whatever reason, here is the write-up. Firstly you need to get to the inside of the system. so turn PS4 upside down, and remove the 3 security screws at the back of the system, holding the bottom cover plate on. (for fat ps4) once removed, it should be easy to remove the cover by lifting back up first and then pull it off the front After this there are many screws on the boarder of the chassy, remove all security screws you see on the chassy, then there are 2 philips head screws at the back in the power supple, remove them too. gently pull out power supply by lifting the right oriented side if you have the back of the ps4 facing you, then lift it gently up while left side may come loose a bit, then put the right side down and lift the left until it comes off prongs, be careful not to break the cabel coming out of the power suply, you can easily just remove this during the replacement of the drive next you want to make sure there are no more screws holding the bluray drive in place, there is 1 normal philips head screw at the top which holds it in place, (top being front) just remove that one and then remove the ribbon cable and power cable which are connecting to the drive from the mainboard. the drive should now come out with a bit of encouragement. simply drop your new drive in and remove the daughter board from your old ps4 and replace the one on the new drive if it came with one, otherwise hook it up to the new drive, there are a few screws holding it in place. once the old daughter board it hooked up to the old drive, hook it back up to the mainboard and reverse the teardown process ensuring you keep the new drive and mainboard int the system. turn on the ps4 and you should be golden. WARNING! This may not fix all issues especially if your daughterboard is damaged. if you would like any help to see if it might help please post image of your daughterboard and what is going wrong with the ps4 in comments down bellow and i will make a judgement on it and tell you what i think you should do. i am also not responsible if you purchase a replacement drive and it does not work for whatever reason. i will help you diagnose the issue but if you do not take necessary precautions to make sure you need a new drive it is your fault. also be careful of sellers on ebay, some might not be very good. Good luck guys
  7. yeah man Cturt only came along a few years ago haha. not too sure when qwertyuiop first came to ps4 scene tho. i think he's been around for a while too.
  8. So over the last few days, hints have been dropped all over the scene. There's a video below for those of you who prefer to listen, otherwise if you would like to read then just check under the video and there's a whole write up. Recent updates are showing that qwertyuiop and cturt may have something more than we have expected. cturt has started off by posting tweets showing himself updating to ofw 4.06 from his beloved 1.76 This also goes along with other tweets by qwertyuiop hinting at a 0day exploit kernalside as seen bellow At this point in time we can only assume they are sitting on top of something huge but until the exploit is finished and publicly released, might take some time.. I am personally excited to see where they are going to go with this and what could come of it. What we know: The webkit exploit will currently grant us access up to firmware 4.07 while the kernal exploit is currently classified as 0day which means that the exploit is unknown to sony and therefore not patched in latest released firmware. The only issue with the kernal exploit is that there is no current public releases of a webkit exploit for the latest firmware which is required to utilize the kernal exploit. The good news about this is that webkit exploits are usually much easier to come across than kernal exploits and if a newer webkit exploit is discovered this could essentially target latest firmware systems and all systems will be exploitable until $ony engineers patch them. Let us know in the comments down below what you're most looking forward to when the ps4 is publicly hacked Sources: Twitter - CTurt Twitter - qwertyuiop Wololo
  9. thanks for the vid bro. pointed me in the right direction. i have no identified the issue and need to know what rout to take as of now as i don't believe this video shows how to remarry the board
  10. Ok guys so at this point i'm in about all the way up shit creek and in need of some assistance. i'm calling on anyone who has any knowledge that might be able to assist me with this issue as i am out of ideas. So after hours of working and analyzing. the replacement daughter board is functional for the most part, apart from not completing handshake allowing application launch. the old one would not spin disks or accept/eject them. i found this out after manually injecting with built in crank... so i analyzed original daughter board and i believe i found the source of the issue. i counted 4 cut tracers. see pictures below and see if you agree. my next question is, does anyone have a current method to remarry daughterboards (i don't think i have seen any public releases so if anyone has a private method i would really apreaciate it.) or is anyone able to tell me which chips need to be removed from original daughter board and placed on to the new daughter board in order for it to complete the handshake. Thanks for the help guys EDIT: in all honesty if i had to blame anything i would be blaming the daughter board... but anyways if anyone knows anything more or thinks they know what can help, please drop a comment. EDIT 2: put all original msg into spoiler as its not really relevant anymore.
  11. I did see this as i finished writing the article. i did a quick search and found it but this one seems to be most in date and if maintained could be one of the best homebrews out there... just from past experience not many people could pull it off. i hope it turns out successful but then again servers cost money to run so lets see how long it lasts
  12. Okay guys so i usually don't post about psvita or pstv as i don't have one and i'm usually the tutorial guy but this piece of software caught my eyes. The Vita Homebrew Browser allows you to browse through a list of most (if not all) homebrew currently public for the psVita/TV. Another great aspect of this software is that it not only lets you browse, but once you find a homebrew that interests you, you can download and install it directly from the vita "it's like having your cake and being able to eat it too!!" All jokes aside, this homebrew makes things very easy for those who don't have access to a computer to download files or who simply don't know what homebrew is out there and would like to have a snoop through the database for something interesting. This homebrew was one of the late entry's to the Gekihen contest and therefore can be found/downloaded on the site: http://gekihen.customprotocol.com/en/project/Vita-Homebrew-Browser Any problems or bugs can be reported to the DEV "Devnoname120", as i may not be able to answer or help with some issues you may or may not find with the homebrew. Remember guys, enjoy and peace out! Sources: image: Gekihen Page
  13. I just completed this quiz. My Score 37/100 My Time 213 seconds  
  14. Hi guys Here's a tutorial on how to use downloaded save files with your ezflash 3 in 1. check the video below to see how its done or the written tutorial below the video here. Enjoy Video Written Tut: Step 1: Download a save file for game of choice from website of choice. Step 2: Make sure you have a clean rom file. (how you obtain this i cannot help you with. i would recomend ripping your own gba cart) Step 3: Download the gba Exploader app from here Step 4: Download the EZ IV client from here or here Step 5: Download the visual boy emulator from here Step 6: Open Ez client and click open to navigate to your gba rom. Copy the name of the rom before you click open and then click open Step 7: Paste the name of the rom into the "rom name" text box in top left. Step 8: Change save size to 64K bites. Step 9: Make sure "add save patch" box is ticked and then click config and the button with the 3 dots to choose a destination to output Step 10: Click "ok" then click "send"... wait for it to send/save to destination you will have a message when complete. Step 11: Put rom onto sd card that is in flash cart running the ezflash 3 in 1 Step 12: Open the patched rom with visualboy advance. (if it does not work use the clean rom you ripped/obtained) Step 13: When visual boy starts loading it go into file and then import battery file. Step 14: Select your downloaded battery file, then open game and make a few movements. Click save and wait for it to save. Step 15: Once saved open file menu again and click export then battery file. make sure it has the same name as the rom file with extension .sv1 (or anything between .sv1 to .sv5) then copy to "GBA_SAVE" on flash card. Step 16: Safely eject sd card and place back into flash card and into ds Step 17: Open gba exploader Step 18: Navigate to the patched game file we downloaded and either open in ram or nor. make sure you upload the save file with the same number we named it to on the computer. Step 19: Once game is open it should have the save file. it may say it was corrupted but it will still work Step 20: Open the game with that file and make some more edits and make sure to save before you quit. Step 21: It should now be saved forever. Step 22: Profit? Hope you guys enjoy and get use out of this. Peace
  15. haha nah man there was no offence taken or anything. was happy to have the input and im sure others will be if they need the help. on a side note, one of the pokemon games i was working with said the save was currupted before i changed the battery and as soon as i placed the new battery in the safe file was restored. not sure how it was linked or what but that happened. also with the old snes carts you were talking about. i guess if desperate enough and if the cart relied on the battery, one could even provide power to cart with external power supply via traces that go to the power carrying pins on the board? is not you could always solder the new battery as a parallel to the first and try and get the first battery off and some crap like that too. would probably be messy af and highly not recommended. yeah man a bunch of them can do this. i would recommend checking batteries if they have them, if not its most likely the pins. i have had a few stop working too. just open them up and clean the pins with alcohol on an earbud to give them a good clean. give it a go it might work for you
