    PlayStationHaX Podcast

    Forums are a somewhat of a niche market, they are not used nor utilized in the same manner that they were ten years ago, i miss the days were forums were filled with intelligent people helping the less educated, i miss members filling forums full of tutorials and help guides, don't get me wrong, it still happens, just not to the same extent that it once did and finally i miss the days when people used to come on a forum and tell me to kill myself or express how they would like to have sexual relations with my mother, there just isn't the heart in forums that once existed, that does not mean i wish to get rid of this forum, it simply means that i must evolve a little and this is why i am introducing podcasts Podcasts are simple audio speeches or presentations that you can listen to via Spreaker where i will be uploading them or download them from there and play them on your phones audio player, you probably wonder why i chose to do Podcast's and not videos, well that is simple, videos require you to look at them, one is tempted to even stare at the screen whilst they are listening something on the screen, listening to a Podcast does not tempt you to look at your screen and you can listen to it on your way to work or when you are out for your evening jog, you can listen to it in bed or the bath, on top of that YouTube is over done and saturated with videos involving the scene and games consoles, scene Podcasts are not something i have really seen done, apart from when the much loved and hated scener Braken did it a long time ago. I plan to do these Podcasts each week and i might even venture into scenes outside the PlayStation scene, i will try to record it on a Saturday so that it is available on Sunday, it will discuss the news and releases that happened throughout the week: Please feel free to leave suggestions or tell me how much it sucks

    First of all, credits to @Joonie, without him none of this would have been possible. Things required: 2 PS4s (one in 5.05 preferably, another in the version you wish to port stuff to, like 4.55) SDK of the older version (don't ask for it, just search a bit) Hexeditor (such as HxD) Fpkg tools (specifically https://www.sendspace.com/file/bqsin5 ) Game to port (Something like God of War or the likes) FTP Payload on 5.05 Filezilla Client First thing we'll do is find how many modules our game has and which they are. So we start our game minimized, go to the ftp payload and start filezilla, then navigate to the pfsmnt folder and to the title id for patch. In the case of God of War, they're libc and libSceFios2. So we'll grab both of these from our SDK (in this case, 4.50 sdk) and place them in the sce_module folder, replacing the ones existing there (from 5.00 SDK). Last but not least we grab the eboot from the ftp and we replace the version binary string (search for ORBI, caps, it should be around this location) Example: https://imgur.com/a/4rZofbG https://imgur.com/a/isZaGw9 And finally, after replacing those strings you can replace the eboot as well and place it under the fpkg creator. This has been tested by @Joonie and works for some games (cases like 5.05 on 4.55 work for the majority of it but cases like 5.05 on 4.05 don't for the majority so you're on your own to test these)

    Happy Birthday PS3

    Twelve whole years ago today the PS3 was released in Japan, that was at least two years before members of the forum such as @DarkElementPL were born, The PS3 does not have the same amount of love from Sony as it did all those years ago, but the scene gives it the love it deserves, you can see such instances in places like PSX-Place, Reddit and of course here at PlayStationHaX. I haven't updated the website in about two years, but that doesn't mean what already is there is not a good read, as it is probably one of the best console histories you will ever read and i will update it when i have time, you can read all about the PS3's life below: PS3History

    Hi Everyone , a Few days ago , A PS4 Programmer/Dev named thedarkprogr teased a PSPHD GUI , a repacking tool for psphd games , which allows users to create their own PSP game F-Pkg . The tool has been released through his GitHub. He stated that this tool is not a PSP emulator for PC in a tweet posted lately after the release As i said , it let you make FPKG by repacking PSP backups ISO/CSO/PBP, It's known that games don't work so keep making the tool up to date and check the PSP compatibility List continuously for working games. Peace!!

    First i want to state that i have zero problem with people selling hacked consoles on eBay, i think that we should be able to sell modded consoles and chipped consoles on eBay or wherever, what i am against is people selling hacked consoles at an inflated price, just because they have a bunch of pirated games included, this causes harm to the scene as can been seen in the case that Sony recently took against a guy from California Blackcloak13 who's real name is Eric David Scales has been taken to court by Sony Interactive Entertainment(SIE), for selling a 'Jailbroken' PS4 loaded with 60+ games for $499, an agent of SIE bought the console in April 2018 found that the harddrive was filled with 60+ pirated games, SIE then bought another PS4 from Blackcloak13 in June 2018, this console was on firmware 5.05 and also had a bunch of pirated games, here is a few quotes from the legal document: You can download the PDF and read more at the source: Sony Sues ‘Jailbroken’ PS4 Seller for Copyright Infringement Thanks Roxanne for the tip, wish you were a member of the forum so i could mention you.

    Hello! This program, a micro version of my PS4 NOR Validator, is designed solely to validate and repair the WiFi/BT module of your PS4. How do I know I need it repaired? Well if your controller does not sync anywhere but the safe mode menu then your module is corrupted. Note: If your controller does not sync in safe mode, this program is not for you! You have a southbridge/usb port issue. I have included a small sample of VALID patches for you to use, but you may have to source more yourself. Just place them in the /Patches/ directory with any file name. If your patch isnt listed and you enjoy risk, my program will allow this. You can patch a mis-matched firmware for your WiFi/BT module. Doing this will wipe c0020001.bin and its header from your PS4's NOR entirely and replace it with whatever you have chosen. I recommend you stick with the correct Torus version, which will be displayed on screen. Slim & Pro models are generally Torus 2. If you hate risk but still want to patch, simply ask around for your matching patch file. Just quote the file size. If you have found a patch that is not on my list, let me know at bwe@betterwayelectronics.com.au and send me a link to it. Feel free to use my EXTRACTOR to verify its validity and ensure proper extracting! I will add any new patches to my program in future revisions. NOTE: My program is designed for Windows 64 - If this is a problem, please upgrade (if you can call it that...) Released 4/9/18 as Version 1.0 https://www.betterwayelectronics.com.au/BwE WiFi-BT Patcher v1.00.rar

    In May of this year(2018) i had to create this thread calling out some fakes/scammers in the PlayStation scene, these clowns were claiming that they had a PS4 Jailbreak on 5.5x and were able to go online with said Jailbreak, they were also trying to convince people to update to this firmware, but they are not the only fakes and that thread was not suitable for other names i wanted to add, so this will combine the old list and add new names from other PS scenes. Original List Created - 17th May 2018: @Whispersintheb1 This is the infamous scene clown Umar, if you have not heard that name before, ask someone on PlayStation Homebrew Discord or you can ask on DarkSoftware Discord, i think @centrino is a big fan of his, so perhaps mention him when asking, or simply just join the server and as "Who is Umar", you will be told all the stupid things he has done, he has trolled a lot and been incredibly annoying, he usually is the butt of everyone's jokes. This guy seems to be the ring leader of the idiot group and the one spamming the fake tweets the most. @84Ciss If you were part of the PS3 scene, you would have unfortunately heard of the lame Team SGK, they took other peoples work such as CFW and put their own name on it. @RSPxAndrew2007x Andrew is a YouTuber who has hosted a video on his channel that claims to be a Jailbreak for 5.53 which also has online access, this is 100% fake, i wrote an article about him here: Scene Warning - Do Not Trust YouTube Videos By @RSPxAndrew2007x Aka Andrew2007 | xAndrew2007x If you are following any of those guys on Twitter, unfollow and block them, also unsubscribe from Andrew as he is making money from scamming you when you watch his fake videos. Here is Umar trying to convince r00tbeer to update to 5.50: Now that firmware 5.55 is released, they are saying the will be releasing a 5.55 Jailbreak with online access. You need to understand that everything they say is a lie, if you are on any firmware below 5.05 and update to 5.5x, you will lose the ability to have a Jailbreak, perhaps permanently, so do not update past 5.05 regardless of what anyone tries to convince you to do, here is a list of of other people who create fake videos: xHARDHeMPuS This idiot has been posting fake KExploit videos for a LONG time, half his Twitter followers are fake and i am sure he has bought a ton of those YouTube subscribers. Added - 26th August 2018: Ben Yousaf aka OFWModz aka ZuKuTo aka Piano aka OFWModzLIVE aka KrewIife aka ZuKuToOfficial aka yasmineyousaf(Skype) aka krewella When you look at this clowns Twitter, you wouldn't think anything shady about it, the only bad thing is the guy seems to be a massive cunt, but that is not a crime in itself, i would not have known about this person had it not been for "name redacted at request", who told me of this idiot going around saying that he is "W" from Team PS3Xploit, here is a screenshot from his Discord server: And here is a screenshot from one of his YouTube videos: I did post a PSA on Twitter warning people to not trust people claiming to be devs from PS3Xploit mentiong the official forum PSX-Place, here is what they replied: Added 19th October 2018 @ktiosz_dev I have known many 15, 16, 17 year old developers and they have been very mature, sadly this person who claims to be a dev is very immature. He keeps claiming he has a PS4 Exploit, when the reality is he has nothing and is just some bored kid looking for attention. PS4 Scene Developer Al Azif is creating a website dedicated to warning people of such scammers, you can read more about it here: https://github.com/FakesExposed/FakesExposed.github.io I have an incomplete list of trusted developers here: But this caused a lot of controversy, with people complaining that some people shouldn't be on it and others complaining that they were not on it.

    Hi Guys, Here is a small update to PS2 Classics Gui (V1.0.0.11) So whats new ? Well i had reports on my github from users who had issues with the Mutli ISO screen (i added a possible fix as i could not reproduce the error). Secondly i added a way for users to get custom configs from @kozarow 's Github this means we can now get new lua's for a single iso from his github and have it applied to the PS2 Classic you are trying to build for. Next I added a simple screen at startup that will ask you if you want to use a custom folder for ps2 classics at boot and then the new settngs for @kozarovv 's patches I also added a new font from the ps4 itself to your computer this is the PS4Icons font it has the ps4 main boot logo , and has ps2 psp ext ext items that are being used inside ps2 classics currently Whats next ? *Well i'm thinking of creating a pastebin or asking @kozarvv if we can use his github to allow us to have a list of working configs for a specific game that we might not currently have (from official pkg's or either from your own tweaking ) this will allow other users to have a directly build working copy of all the files required (extra files) and such. your free to give your thoughts on this in the comments *Also i dont know how usable this will be for anyone currently but im also building a psp classics gui (its currently pretty useless as the psp emulation on the ps4 is trash) but hey whatever Here is some images from the new version of PS2 Classics Here we initialize the location where ps2 classics will work in Next a new how to use screen If you say yes you will see the how to use screen (Not the prettiest screen i have ever built) Else you will see the main screen after the boot logo And here is a screenshot of the settings if anyone has any questions let me know here or on twitter Kind Regards xDPx

    Release: BwE PS4 NOR Statistics

    Hello! Following my this program BwE PS4 NOR Statistics v1.00, another micro version of my PS4 NOR Validator, is designed solely to validate your NOR based on statistics only from Better Way Electronics! Why make this you ask? Entropy and statistics are a well used methodology in the malware analysis field to determine if a binary file is encrypted, and by how much. What is entropy? Entropy is a method for measuring uncertainty in a series of numbers or bytes. In technical terms, entropy measures the level of difficulty or the probability of independently predicting each number in the series. What has this got to do with PS4s? Well the PS4's NOR is almost entirely encrypted and so with a collection of known valid NOR's it is possible to determine the level of entropy that represents a valid NOR and what level of entropy would represent a corrupt NOR. When corruption occurs it will generally wipe out a large chuck of the NOR, cause the NOR to repeat itself or will fill the NOR with junk. All of this will decrease or severely increase the entropy. Seeing as the PS4 firmware is likely to add more or less complexity with each update I have made available a settings file where you can adjust the predicted statistics. Download: BwE_PS4_NOR_Statistics.rar (5.4 MB) Have fun! And yes this is made specifically for other PS4 repairers like myself. Maybe it will be useful for something else one day. Remember the fun we had with the PS3 NOR? NOTE: My program is designed for Windows 64 - If this is a problem then you're computing wrong. Release Date: 5/11/18 Version: 1.0 MD5: BDABAAB45995A3D1E7AE83541E752721 Chiptune: Dubmood - A Tribute to Kootie Loader Art: BwE (Credits to Maniac (Netflix)) This is what a valid NOR looks like: This is what an invalid NOR looks like: Sorry for the copypasta! Enjoy either way!

    What you need: 1. PS4 10xx, 11xx or 12xx series 2. ESP8266 (Not the crazy hardcore wide versions with presoldered headers) 3. A USB extension cable, I used a micro to mini cable. 4. Cables that have header pins (male & female) - This isnt MANDATORY, but it makes it removable. 5. Screw Driver 6. Torx Screw Driver 7. Soldering Iron 8. Lead Solder 9. Flux Paste 10. Mana Level 100+ (Soldering exp) Rip off your BD board! Your ESP will be going underneath. This spot is PERFECT its like Sony envisioned it to be here! See? This stuff is easy to find. Be sure to test fit your ESP8266! Here are the measurements, just in-case you have some wacky weird ESP8266... The large pad is the 5v, the small ones in the corner are ground. If you are unhappy with my choice in points, there are others. You could go chasing it in the board itself, but you'd have to actually disassemble the whole case - my plan was to avoid this. Be sure to put flux paste on the pads and heat them up with the iron prior to applying LEAD solder. This is how long your cable to the BD board should be. Be sure to trim the tinned tips! It could be prettier, but hey! It will be strong. See! Now it looks cool. Now to do the cables for the ESP... I twist the cables, shove them through the VIN and G (Ground) then bend them. I then apply solder from the bottom side (after applying flux). Generally solder will flow to the top side, if it hasn't then just do it yourself. This ensures it will be TIGHTTTT. Tape that shit down! Oh look at THAT! LOVELY! Plug in the USB cable and shove it in that little gap at the front pointing up. PERFECTION! Close everything up and admire your work! OH LOVELYYYYYY

    Hi guys. Now before i get started, i know this post might cause some controversy, so before we start, please make sure you watch or read everything before replying. I can see a lot of people are getting excited over the ability to downgrade their ps4's in the future.... Well, i'm here to tell you why this isn't as great as it is being made out to be. Please feel free to view my YouTube video below if you would just like to listen rather than reading, otherwise you can continue to read below the video! Video: Written info: So, essentially there is speculation of being able to downgrade PS4's to older firmwares. From what i have seen, there are a few legitimate methods in the works, and of course, many fakes too. First and foremost, I must warn people to be careful of any fake downgrade methods which could damage your console or other hardware, because if you end up being one of the poor people who get sucked into it, you're going to have a bad day Secondly, I would to address the legitimate methods which are being speculated and hinted in the scene. Many of you may have heard or fail0verlows recent release of PS4 Aux Hax. If you have not, I suggest you read about them PS4 Aux Hax 1: Intro & Aeolia, PS4 Aux Hax 2: Syscon and PS4 Aux Hax 3: Dualshock4. If you do not understand all that is written in there, this is fine. Essentially, the information they have released will aid developers greatly once it is put into practice by our current scene devs. As you know, Fail0verflow does not usually release completely made hax for end users to use, but they hint to the devs, how they can achieve a very desirable outcome. So you're all asking, why does this matter? Well it matters because essentially, this is the foundations to jailbreak any firmware up to the time of writing this. The methods of downgrading which are currently being hinted, are using Fail0varflows work to a certain degree, and thus implementing the methods used to jailbreak the system. Great right? In other words, when downgrading is made possible for all end users, it will no longer be required as the level of access required is the same level of access required to jailbreak the system..... So the need to downgrade is made redundant. Why downgrade when you can just jailbreak the latest firmware right? Well there are many reasons why dev's may not want it to be possible to jailbreak the latest firmware. This includes the fact that if people are on latest firmware, they may try gain PSN access which will cause a lot of ethical issues, if anyone is actually able to get onto PSN. But this can easily be avoided by releasing jailbreak for firmware just before the latest, that way PSN access is still revoked. Needless to say, PS4 day's are nothing like the PS3 days. A lot has changed, and the requirement to downgrade to get CFW is no more. Depending on the direction the scene takes, there may be a release for downgrading, or there may be future releases of newer jailbreaks implementing the Dualshock4 method Fail0vertflow has talked about in their write-up. Time will tell. Just some food for thought guys. Hope i have explained a bit of the mistery behind the scene for some of the people who are curious. Please feel free to comment your thoughts below. All opinions are welcome Thumbnail:

    The PS Dev Wiki's that comprise of PS3, PS3, PSP and PS Vita developer Wiki's are awesome, yet the family seemed as if it was missing something and that something was Wiki's related to the PS1 and PS2, which is why i have created Wiki's for both those consoles. It will be harder documenting the PS1 and PS2 as the majority of the sites connected to those consoles are long gone and many are not archived properly on Wayback Machine, i am hoping that some people from those scenes will be able to contribute, perhaps some developers such as @bigboss, anyhow here are the links to all the PS Dev Wiki's: PS1 Dev Wiki PS2 Dev Wiki PSP Dev Wiki PS3 Dev Wiki PSVita Dev Wiki PS4 Dev Wiki If you want to be a member of the PS1 and PS2 Wiki's drop a message below or contact me via Discord.

    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...

    On the 11th of December 2018, @zecoxao announced via his Twitter account that there would be a secret method revealed soon, he said multiple times that it was only good for games and that it was basically pointless as it would be patched soon after release. So yesterday, the 29th of December 2018, zecoxao revealed the method on YouTube and opened the gates to an unprecedented amount of teenage boys and grown men crying at him, because this method did not give them the piracy the way they wanted, the amount of attacks and articles zecoxao has received is insane, considering this method isn't his and he was just the messenger, Reddit seems to be the place for attacking him the cowardly way, anyhow here is a video of the secret method: @rmorteza21 next time do me a favour and turn the phone around so that you record horizontally https://twitter.com/notzecoxao/status/1079003064743251968

    A few days ago, I wanted to play some Openbor games on PS4. I did not find so many around and I decided to make a port via iso PS2. Many have been fixed by me to make them work and I decided to share them with you. I do not think I'm going against piracy, they're simple mods of amateur games.

    TOXXIC407 has released a front end for @flatz remote PKG installer: All the downloads are stored on TOXXIC407's server so you do not have to set up your own server, using the front end does seem fast enough, i tried it on my Android Tablet and PC, however i did find that some downloads failed, perhaps hosting them oneself locally might eliminate problems. How It Works? You run @zecoxao 1.8 HEN You Run flatz remote PKG Installer You visit http://tgi-12-2.de/ Enter your PS4's IP address Click on the homebrew you want, then click install.

    The Game Boy Advance Consolizer

    A new modkit has been made by someone named Stephen who blogs about the projects he's involved with. One of his latest is the GBA Consolizer http://stephens-projects.com/projects/gbahdmi/ which makes it possible to play your GBA on your modern HD television with no latency or lag just as if playing on the handheld yourself. At this point you're probably thinking to yourself "hey jerk I connect my GBA to my GameCube with my 'Game Boy Player' adapter and play it on my TV everyday what makes this so special". The Game Boy Player does not hold a candle to this though if you read through the features and see how it's a digital output opposed to analog so stuff does not get screwed up. Also another useful addition to this mod is the addition of a SNES controller port. That way if you do not want the authenticate Game Boy experience with the screen being a fraction of an inch away from the player's eyes because the tin LCD is now replaced with a giant widescreen television you now have the luxury of using a controller with a decent length cord to get a better view. Here are some related videos: Source http://stephens-projects.com/projects/gbahdmi/ via http://retrorgb.com/gba-consolizer-an-hdmi-720p-gba-kit.html

    Update At Bottom Of Article. I am sure most of you remember that Konami at one time was an awesome company, that released some of the worlds best games, then something happened and Konami seemed to turn evil, a highly anticipated sequel to the Silent Hill games got cancelled, Konami had the demo removed from the PS Store and you couldn't redownload it even if it was in your download list, then we found out that Konami were complete scumbags to their employees, we thought this is the lowest they could stoop? According to tweets from well known people in the official gaming scenes, Konami are having a silent patch pushed that disables the P.T demo if you have a playable version on your PS4, so if you are on the most recent firmware and can play P.T, it seems that Konami can send a silent patch to stop you having fun with the demo, here are some tweets and articles: Notice i have tagged the article as a rumour, the Twitter user "Mike Futter" has deleted some of his tweets, so this could all stem from some stupid troll on Reddit being tweeted by Wario64. There is one thing, notice the "lock", this type of lock happens when a game does not have access to the license, this happens on Jailbroken consoles a lot, the game/demo is locked when not in jailbreak mode. Opinions? This is one of the reasons we hack consoles, if all those great devs out there didn't find exploits and such for us to use, we would have no way of preserving or having ways to play preserved titles. [UPDATE] Well it seems that this was just one big troll, nobody has been able to replicate what was posted by this idiot on Reddit, this was either accomplished by editing the param.sfo on a hacked PS4 or someone had a little fun with PhotoShop, either way it is fake and was done to give someone a little pleasure. What i do find alarming, is that "Mike Futter" claims that a friend of his had the demo update, is this dude a liar? Even though this is 99% a fake troll, Konami are still assholes [UPDATE 2] Thanks to MrMario2011 providing me a link to an article, i can now post a quote directly from Konami regarding the demo: Source Source 2 If you aren't already subscribed to MrMario2011, you should do so here: https://www.youtube.com/user/MrMario2011 He makes some awesome gaming/hacking related videos.

    A Reddit user by the name of morgue888 has posted an image and details about an SD Card mod he did on the PS2 Network Adaptor: This mod lets you use an SD card to load backups instead of using a HDD, here are the components he used: Materials/Hardware: Card Reader https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DGNYXQ0/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Converter for Card Reader https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00006B8C2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Card Reader Extension https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00879U4O8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s02?ie=UTF8&psc=1 SD Card https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B013WXK4NY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Useful but not absolutely required if you have another method to format the SD cards: You can connect the card reader to your PC over USB but it reads it as a HDD for proper formatting. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DQJME7Y/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Source

    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
