What Type Of Device Is @_AlAzif Bringing To The PS4 Scene?

Recommended Posts

Yesterday i posted an article on an update to Al Azif's PS4 Exploit Host, at the bottom of the sources location on Github was an announcement from the developer, claiming that he will bring a "Modchip" to the PS4 scene, i was going to post about this yesterday, but i wanted him to verify some things, first i will post a quote of the announcement:





This project has been a little neglected since the 0.4.1 release almost a month ago as I've been working on another project since that release. I've haven't been hiding and posted a bit on Discord so this won't come as a surprise to some. It's a "modchip" for webkit exploits, mirroring the existing ESP8266 methods, just with more features/polish. The device can either create a network to connect to (No internet access), connect to an existing network (Works just like this host), or create a bridge (Enabling internet access though the device). It's a custom PCB that's about 25mm*18mm*4mm (Currently) so it should fit inside most consoles. The front end looks like my regular exploit host and you can view a demo (out of date) of the control panel here.




Here are the features said to be in the device:

  • Control the device from your phone/computer over Bluetooth/Wifi
  • Open API for developers to interact/control the device
  • Press physical buttons on the console
  • View/Download UART data
  • Add, download, or delete exploits with one button click
  • Custom filetype (Compresses exploits into a single file to install/share)
    • Supports both Bin and JS payloads
    • Includes application to compress/extract these files
    • This is to save space and add to ease of use
  • Web based firmware updates for this device (Need no physical access to device to update it)
  • Basic usage without soldering (No buttons or UART)
  • A secret feature that'll be revealed after it's working 100%
    • If you do some snooping on the PCB you might be able to guess it


I asked the developer some questions relating to the hardware and software, he told me that the device in question is not the ESP8266 and the software being used in it will be coded by him.






The above image is not the device that Al Azif is using/releasing, the image contains a PS1 with a Modchip installed.
