    I also thought I'd release the severely outdated PS3 NAND validator source. It's messy and unprofessional, but hey it worked and it was made in 2012/2013. Feel free to update it. Don't trust my PS4 NOR Validator? Have a whole bunch of dumps from the various consoles you have been repairing/collecting? Well now is your chance to shine! I present to you the BwE PS4 NOR Comparator! Now you can gather vital information from all of your dumps at once and compare them all by yourself! Be sure to use Notepad++ as the outputs can be large enough to crash your normal text editor. Oh and a multi-cored PC would help. I think at this point I am finding excuses to release stuff... Version History: 1.1 (20/01/19) - Whoops! Fixed a bug. Added Additional Comparison. 1.0 (19/01/19) - First Release! Source: https://github.com/BetterWayElectronics/comparator Download Compiled Version (Archive Password = BwE): https://betterwayelectronics.com.au/downloads/BwE_PS4_NOR_Comparator.rar PS3 NAND Validator Source: https://github.com/BetterWayElectronics/ps3-nand-validator Hey so yeah!

    Cuban developer Lapy who in the past few weeks has released El Pollo which is a Flappy Bird clone and Save The Scene a unique homebrew that sees you saving several members of the PlayStation and Nintendo scenes from bombs dropping on them, has released a brand new game. The game called El Pollo 2.0 is a cross between "Helicopter" and "Flappy Bird", the game is fun but if you suck like me, then it can be quite frustrating, which this gameplay video by me highlights: Here is a quote from the developer: Source/Download

    Developer Lapy who ported the Flappy Bird clone a few weeks ago, has released a stunning looking homebrew for the PS4 called Save The Scene. The game see's you saving scene developers from bombs, you have to press either Square, Cross, Circle or Triangle to detonate a bomb before it drops on the head of a developer. Here you can see some gameplay: Thanks to NanospeedGamer(Follow) For the image and video. Follow Lapy https://twitter.com/Lapy05575948 Follow RetroGamer_74 https://twitter.com/RetroGamer_74

    Quickz popped by Discord to let me know of a game he had just created, the game see's you control a creature that looks like a jellyfish sheep, you have to avoid objects falling from the sky. The game is made using GameMaker and is probably the most fun i have had playing a Homebrew game in a while, the game looks great and is quite addictive, here is a screenshot followed by a gameplay video: You can download the game here: https://www.mediafire.com/file/bt8n0dsrc60v0p7/IV0000-QUIG00001_00-QUICKZGAME000001.PKG Also please follow the developer on Twitter here: https://twitter.com/Quickz16

    The PS Vita scene is a wonderful scene, but it has some immature motherfuckers in it, now i am not the most mature asshole in the world, but i draw the line at certain things, such as not being biased against a developers releases, if it suck's i will say it sucks, if it's great i will praise it, regardless of what i think about it, regardless if i like the developer or think he or she is a piece of shit, i won't stop it being posted about, nor will i refuse to post about it, anyone who would refuse to post something because they don't like the application or the developer is an immature discriminating, insecure egotistical asshole. Now i don't think the PS Vita scene is that immature, is it?, it is!?, Really? get the fuck outa here with that bullshit... Thanks to the OneLua Team guys @gdljjrod and @DevDavisNunez, you now have a place to grab whatever homebrew that is released for the PS Vita regardless of who created it, that awesome place is: WikiVita Now it does not look as good as VitaDB, but the owner of VitaDB won't upload an application because of so called license violations or if he thinks the developer is a piece of shit, such developers as @silicaAndPina, it also does not have the huge amount of content that Brewology does, but the owner of Brewology does not want to work with other developers and help in the downloading of files to the PS Vita, WikiVita is what it is, a place to download all and any PS Vita homebrew, it will improve over time as it has really dedicated developers who are willing to fix things and are eager to work with people. So go follow the Twitter account: https://twitter.com/WikiVita You will see when anything gets uploaded and be able to download it to your computer or use the QR code to scan it and download it directly to your PS Vita. So thank you to the OneLua guys for showing your love for the scene and giving us a place that we known won't be biased.

    Release: BwE PS4 NOR Validator

    What up gangsters, now its v1.3.5 But you should know this given my AUTOMATIC VERSION CHECKER! Version: 1.3.5 (30/1/19) Added CoreOS Reference Points (Additional CoreOS Per-Console Validation). File MD5: EFFC0962BDC304ABF059380B362CBD30 So it turns out there are actual static/dynamic fixed areas within the CoreOS - after which it becomes truly random. I am sure there is more I can find in the NOR. I think the next update will have better validation within the repetition spectrum.

    The real meaning of the word "homebrew"

    I just think if you own it, you should be able to do any damn thing you want with it, albeit offline. But I do get the whole distributing private Sony keys etc as being a bit much.

    It has come to my attention that a large group of people are walking around with a wrong idea about what the word "homebrew" means. There seems to be a wide misconception that the word is exclusively related to hacking activities, and that it only applies to platforms that doesn't normally "allow" you to create your own software. This perception is completely wrong. Let me start out small and simple: When a company makes a game, it is called "a commercial game". When a consumer makes a game (thus in his sparetime as a hobby), then it is called "a homebrew game". The platform doesn't matter. The technique doesn't matter. The language doesn't matter. The only thing that determines that it is "homebrew", is the fact that it is made by an individual (or a small group of hobbyists) rather than a company, and that it was done at home in his sparetime. And that's it. Plain'n'simple. That's how you define a homebrew game. Nothing illegal about it whatsoever. I'm an old geezer. I grew up with the Amstrad CPC 8-bit computer in the 80s. This computer too had a lot of commercial titles that you could buy. And it also had a lot of homebrew games. People were encouraged to make these homebrew games back then - so a lot of people did! It was easy back in those days, because most of the 8-bit computers came with a built-in programming language called BASIC. As soon as you turned on the computer, it was ready to receive your BASIC instructions. We didn't have the Internet back then, so a lot of these homebrew games were instead spread via magazines. Pages full of BASIC lines that you would then sit and type in yourself. Ah yes, those were the days. The next generation of computers, such as the Amiga, didn't come with a built-in programming language. On these computers you had to load a programming language yourself if you wanted to code anything. But the result was still called a homebrew game. And then we have all the game consoles that doesn't give you any immediate way of loading a programming language onto the machine itself. So you naturally can't develop anything on those consoles. But that simply means you develop it on another platform. It's called cross platform development, and it's done on a lot of platforms. That's all. It is still a homebrew game - and there's still nothing illegal about it. But I understand where the confusion comes from here in the PSX communities. One of the reasons people are confused is probably because you need to jailbreak your PlayStation in order to run (native) homebrew on it. Jailbreaking your console isn't illegal though. But you probably think it is because the majority of people who jailbreaks their console, does it not to run homebrew games, but rather to run pirated software - and THAT is indeed illegal yes. Another cause of the confusion is probably emulators. If you code (or port) an emulator, then it also qualifies as homebrew. It is still you sitting at home coding some software - and it still isn't illegal. The illegal part in relation to developing an emulator, only comes if you include pirated copies of games and/or ROM files with it. THAT is what makes it illegal. But you're absolutely allowed to code and distribute the emulator itself, as long as your users have to supply the ROM files and games for themselves. (Supplying the ROM files and games themselves is also normally perfectly legal - as long as they own the original game(s) as well). It's easy to see how all of this may have confused you and lead you to believe that homebrew is all about (illegal) hacking. But now you at least know better. To summarize: Homebrew is no more illegal than a car: You can use a car to break the law if you absolutely want to - but no one will ever blame any aspect of the car for that.

    Earlier this week Vita hacker and developer TheFlow released Modoru, a downgrade method for the PlayStation Vita (TV). The application that can only be run on consoles with HENkaku and / or H-Encore enabled allows you to go back to the out-of-the-box firmware of your console. So, if your console shipped with firmware 1.69, you can reinstall that firmware version. Afterwards you can easily update to firmware 3.60 by using the HENkaku DNS (212.47.229.76). We can conclude that for now Modoru is mainly intended for users with a Vita on firmware 3.67 or 3.68 who can not use a permanent hack (Ensõ). Most Retail PlayStation Vita firmwares that can be used with Modoru can be downloaded from The ConsoleHax [Custom] Firmware Vault: https://www.consolehax.com/vault/index.php?resources/categories/retail-firmware.27/ This Video Tutorial is made by the one and only @Thibobo all credits go to him!

    Developer has released a homebrew game for the PS4 The game is a platformer, you search for stars whilst collecting coins, the game starts off easy enough and slowly build in difficulty as you progress each level, later level see monsters roaming about, all you can do is avoid them as fighting back is not a possibility, there are also such elements as falling bridges and crumbling rock/grass mounds to deal with as well, here is some gameplay: The game is easy enough, even though i make it look like it is hard, it looks stunning with beautiful backgrounds, there are three stars in each level to find and about twenty levels to complete.

    7heD4RKH4CK has ported belek666's version of TempGBA, a Gameboy Advance Emulator to the PS4, it does not run native on the PS4, but rather runs on top of the PS2 Emulator on the PS4, it runs the same way as last weeks MegaDrive Emulator release. The developer had help from Markus95 and PlayStationHaX Admin @zecoxao , unfortunately i cannot link the download as it contains files that would be considered a CopyRight Violation. UPDATE Markus95 released a version of the emulator without the roms: Source

    @TOXXIC407 has released three updates for his PS4 PKG Store this week, versions 1.3, 1.3.1 and 1.3.1.1 were released, they include various changes and fixes. Sadly the releases also added pirated content to the place the files are hosted, so whilst i think this is a great app, i can no longer link to the site hosting the files, here is the Githib page of the project, you can host your own site or host locally and will be ables to add what you wish. UPDATE I ignorantly assumed that the DLC was real DLC from the PS Store, my appologies to @TOXXIC407, it was late at night and i did not have a chance to test it myself.

    Release: BwE PS4 NOR Validator

    @BwE Years ago I was a repairer myself, but unfortunately I never had a real activity, I'm a self-taught fan of electronics and computers tecnology and what I learned about the consoles has been on the forums since the year 1998, then I learned many things about the new generation consoles thanks to the sharing on psdevwiki and thanks to the suggestions of a guy who in the golden years was part of the PS3 scene and that now I think he is out of the loop, but I never pretended that the devs would forcefully release the results of their work, I hate all the drama that persists nowadays about it. However, I wanted to let you know that I use your validators since your firsts releases, so I take this opportunity to thank you.

    ChendoChap has updated his PS4 application PS4 Save Mounter to version 1.5, this software lets you mount your game saves with Read/Write permission. With PS4 Save Mounter you can make decrypted copies of any game saves, as long as those saves are grabbed on firmware 5.05 and below, you can use other peoples game saves and replace your saves with modified ones, here are the changes in this version. v1.5 Changelog removed process selection (everything mounts through shellui) added function to detect games with saves (shellcode-ish stuff) increased performance due to decreasing amount of getuser calls from (2-5) to 1 extra patch to mount other games save's with write permission extra patches to mount saves foreign to your account id increased performance getting save information overall increased performance due to reducing amount of memory allocations fixed save info formatting (UTF8) embedded ps4debug payload Source/Download

    Vita Save Manager Plus

    This is a fork of vita-savmgr. Sources : here Download : here Changes: About encrypted saves: they are untouched and you can restore them as is, ie no need to start the game. About region change option: Most games use the same save "structure" for any region, but not all. Region change is 100% safe and reversible, unless i/o errors occur If the save does not work, the game uses a slightly different save structure (or your entered ID is wrong). About orphan saves: Saves of games that are not installed in your system. You can backup and restore them. (For eg. games that require a save of the predecessor to unlock stuff)

    @BwE Hi Bro , today I dumped the flash from my ps4 on 4.05, I thought that if you need it for your searches I can send it to you but if so, where can I send it to you? The console works perfectly because I used it very little but your validator gives me 2 warnings, if you were willing to take a look at the file, before solder back the flash I would like to know if the warnings are normal or if it was a mistake in reading, anyway I think I have not made mistakes in the wiring, but here are you the expert EDIT: These are the two warnings!

    Markus95 has released the Mega Drive Emulator PGen for the PS4: This is not a native homebrew, instead it runs inside the PS2 Emulator on the PS4. Adding Rom's is not as easy as it could be, here is a translate guide from the source: Decompile Megadrive-Genesis_ (PS2) .pkg with FAKE_PKG_Generator In the folder Image / recover disc01.iso file Open this disc01.iso file with CDGenPS2 v3 You will find a ROMS file Place ALL your roms in this folder Then create the iso that you rename well disc01.iso Rebuild the Fpkg with the new disc01.iso file including your own roms with the same password (00000000000000000000000000000000). This is to keep the developer safe as adding Roms to the emulator would be a violation of Copyright laws. Source/Download

    The PS Vita at the time of release, was the most powerful handheld gaming console, it had lots going for it such as great games, but it had one tiny problem which was Sony's stupid proprietary memory cards, which were an incredibly stupid price and this i believe was the handhelds biggest problem, Sony noticing that not enough sales were being built up started to care less for the PS Vita, focusing more on the PS Vita. This meant that the PS Vita was basically dead, but thanks to a bunch of hackers/developers known as Team Molecule, the console was given a second chance and after a year we were finally able to bypass Sony's stupid memory card prices by being able to use our own microSD cards by using the internal PSVSD adapter or SD2Vita adapter. Below i will attempt to help guide you through enabling your PS Vita to run Homebrew and backup your own games. Q1.) What do i need in order to run homebrew and backups on my PS Vita? A.) The most important thing you need in order to do this, is a PS Vita on official firmware 3.60. If you are reading this and your PS Vita is on 3.61 or above, go away and find a PS Vita on 3.60 or below as HENkaku will not work on any firmware above 3.60. You can buy brand new non Asian PS Vita's that will be 3.60 or below, all EU and US Vita's are 3.60 or below, however many brand new Japanese Vita's are above 3.60. Q2.) But can't i downgrade? A.) No, if you are 3.61 or above there is no way of downgrading to 3.60. Q3.) I already have a PS Vita and accidentally updated, i can't afford another Vita, is there anything i can do? A.) Yes you can buy a motherboard for your PS Vita, they are cheaper than buying a brand new console, you can check various versions here. You might need to view this guide on how to replace your motherboard. Q4.) I have a PS Vita which is below 3.60, how do i get it on the right firmware in order to use HENkaku? A.) This process is extremely easy, you simply add an IP to your DNS settings and you will be able to update to 3.60, here is a detailed guide from the official HENkaku website, i will detail it below in my own words: Go to Settings. Select 'Network'. Select 'Wi-Fi Settings'. Click on the 'Access Point' you are using. Select 'Advanced Settings'. Click on 'DNS Settings'. Choose Manual. On Primary DNS enter 212.47.229.76. Press 'OK'. Go back to the main settings menu. Select 'System Update' and update via Wi-Fi. You will be promoted to update, ONLY update if you see 3.60 (変革 Compatible) in the line of text giving you your update, if (変革 Compatible) is NOT in that line, DO NOT update and retry your proxy to make sure it is set up correctly, you really don't want to accidentally update to above 3.60. If you are 100% sure 3.60 (変革 Compatible) is there, go ahead and let it do its update things. Once it is updated, go back to the Wi-Fi settings and change the 'DNS Settings' to automatic and select 'OK'. If the above method does not work because the server is not available, you can try updating the manual way: First download this firmware, it is the official 3.60 Firmware. Then follow this guide at wololo.com. That is you ready to install HENkaku. Q5.) So how do i actually install HENkaku? A.) This is easy, simply start up your PS Vita's web browser and visit https://henkaku.xyz, once it is loaded click the install button, this may work straight away or may take several attempts, but it will work, once installed the browser will automatically close and you will have a new application bubble on your home screen. Here is a video guide You can also install HENkaku offline if you need to, here is a video guide on how to do that: Q6.) Should i do anything before i start installing Homebrew? A.) You should go into settings and check the brand new HENkaku settings, i suggest making sure the first three options are ticked, this will help stop any accidental update and will also let you install all homebrew. Make sure the 'spoofed version' in the fourth line is the version number of the very latest PS Vita firmware, this will make the PS Vita think it is on the latest firmware. Next you should go and grab the latest VitaShell, at the time of creating this article it is on version 1.75, you will need to transfer this via FTP. Q7.) How do i transfer homebrew and games to the PS Vita A.) First you will need an FTP client installed on your computer/mobile phone/tablet. Here is a list of FTP clients. I personally use FileZilla, but @BobbyBlunt uses WinSCP, the choice is yours, but all you need is to transfer files over. Hopefully you will have downloaded VitaShell linked above. Initially you will have to use the 'molecularShell' application, once you have it open press the 'select' button and that will bring up an ftp IP Next go to your FTP client and enter the details that molecularShell Once connected, your FTP Client should look like this Transfer the VitaShell .vpk to ux0:, now go back to molecularShell on your Vita, go to the ux0: directory and the .vpk should be at the very bottom of the list, simply press X on it to install, now you can use VitaShell from now on to do all your file transfers, you will also be able to use the application to scan QR codes that will download homebrew directly to your PS Vita and install them for you, without the need of FTP. Q8.) Awesome so now i can start installing Homebrew and games? A.) Yes, but i personally advise you to install Enso. Q9.) WTF is Enso and why do i need it? O.o A.) HENkaku is awesome, but it resets each time your PS Vita is powered off and you need to go through the whole process of reinstalling it again, Enso is the next level of HENkaku, once it is installed HENkaku is permanently installed on your PS Vita and will not reset even is you reboot your Vita, Enso is quite like a CFW for your PS Vita. Q10.) That sounds awesome, so how do i install Enso? A.) Visit this website and click on the big download box, now follow the instructions on question 7 to transfer the .vpk to your Vita, once it is installed run it and follow the simple instructions that are displayed. Here is a video guide: Q11.) Ok so all that is done, can i now install homebrew and where do i get it from? A.) Yes you are now free to install everything as you please, here are some of the best sites to grab files from: VitaDB PlayStationSceneFiles Brewology All these sites let you download the .vpk or scan a QR code to let you directly download the homebrew, you can also check: Wololo As a lot of releases are first posted there. Q12.) Are there any recommended homebrews? A.) Q13.) Hold on i just realised my Sony PS Vita memory card is going to fill up fast, i really don't want to buy another card as they are really expensive, what can i do? A.) You can now use microSD cards with the PS Vita, you have two choices: PSVSD This is an adapter created by @Yifan Lu, it is only for 3G PS Vita's as it replaces the 3G module inside the PS Vita, which means opening up your console, the run that Yifan did is all sold out, but you can buy from these places: AliExpress - Team Molecules xyz has stated that these adapters are not great, however the page has some decent reviews. SphereSolid - At the time of writing they are sold out. SD2Vita This adapter was created/invented by xyz, this by far is the better option, or rather the more user friendly option, there are currently two versions v2 and v3, you should buy v3 but your best options are to import them from China which takes a month, you can buy from EU and US places, they will cost more, perhaps twice as much as they are in China, the cheapest and quickest option is to buy a v2, they are sold everywhere and ship in no time at all, below i will link to places to buy and Twitter accounts of trustworthy people to buy from: v2 Centrino c0d3m4st4 Srident SD2VITA eBay UK eBay US Amazon UK Amazon US AliExpress v3 AliExpress and eBay <--- I have personally bought from each of those links. Srident SD2VITA <---- Trusted seller and is from EU, though charges twice as much as the Chinese sellers of v3 Q14.) So i have my SD2Vita and inserted my mSD into it and inserted the adapter into my Vita, it won't work, why? A.) You need to install a plugin/driver for it to work, you can view this tutorial on Wololo's website or you can watch this video guide Q15.) Ok i have done all that, what if i am stuck on something, can i get live help? A.) Yes you can visit the popular Vita Discord server: PlayStation Homebrew Vita Hacking SilicaServer Q16.) I am on 3.60 and want to use PSN, is that possible? A.) No, you cannot at the moment use PSN whilst using HENkaku Q17.) I need help, where can i find the help from nice people ? A.) You can get help, right here on the forum Q18.) But GregoryRasputin is a dick and i don't like PlayStationHaX, are there other forums i can get help ? A.) Of course, here is a link to many websites, English and non English. Q19.) Can i dump my own games so i can store them away on my PC and go back to them when i want them ? A.) Yes it is possible through an application made by Teem FreeK called Vitamin, you can read about it here Q20.) Are there any cool developers i could follow on Twitter or Github? A.) Yes check this link, it isn't complete yet, but it has some names in it Q21.) I want some technical information, where could i find that? A.) There are two main places filled with information: HENkaku Wiki PS Vita Dev Wiki I can't think of anything else, but when i do i will add it, i hope this F.A.Q/Guide helps someone
