[Tutorial] How to mount crypt partitions

First, as always, the credits(included in README):

nmount ps4 payload
developed by wildcard

Thanks to Zer0xFF(@Zer0xFF) for ps4sdk.mk linker flags,
and BigBoss(@psxdev) for directory printing from ps4link!

In order to compile for nmount you need to add 2 flags to /ps4sdk/make/ps4sdk.mk

Replace this line:
LinkerFlags = -O3 -Wall -m64 $(LibraryPath) $(Debug)

With this line:
LinkerFlags = -O3 -Wall -m64 $(LibraryPath) $(Debug) -lPs4SystemCall_stub -lPs4SystemCallAdaptive_stub


Now, for the tutorial!

-> PS4 in 1.76

-> Hitodama’s PS4SDK
-> nmount payload

-> elf loader or extreme-modding’s elf loader
-> the table (included in payload):

Partition mounting table

    da0x15.crypt     ????       
    /user/data       /data           nullfs      MNT_FORCE

-> Information about the mount fs type(also included in source)


0. Specify your options in the payload source. fstype is the type of fs you wish your partition to have. some are not valid and will return an error. check table for more information. fspath is the path where you want to mount your partition. finally, from is the location of your crypt partition.
1. Compile the payload. Make sure the flags on your ps4sdk are properly set! (check readme or this post for more information).
2. Load elf loader.
3. Let it stabilize on stage 5.
4. Start the listener and run the payload:

socat - TCP:my.ps4.ip:5052
socat -u FILE:path/to/nmount TCP:my.ps4.ip:5053

Where my.ps4.ip is your local ps4 ip and path/to/nmount is the absolute or relative path to mounting payload
5. You should have your crypt partition mounted.

PS: This does exactly the same thing as tomtomdu’s partition remounter! Be very careful when using this payload! you may softbrick or even brick your device!

[Released] PS4 Firmware 4.50 – PS4

PS4 Firmware 4.50

View File

Sony have released their biggest firmware yet, the firmware code-named Sasuke brings all these awesome features:




External HDD Support
It’s easy to upgrade the HDD that came with your PS4, but if you’re still looking for more storage space on the console, we’ve got you covered. With this update, you have the option to store content to an external HDD. Just plug a USB 3.0 HDD into your PS4, and voilà, you now have more space on the console.


Custom Wallpapers
This update adds the ability to set your favorite in-game screenshot as the background image for PS4’s home screen. Drop-shadows on text, and the option to dim the Function Area, will help keep the system icons and texts on the home screen clearly visible even if the background image you selected is super bright.


Quick Menu Refresh
As you may know, in the last system update we overhauled the PS4 Quick Menu feature (the menu that appears after a long press of the PS button on DualShock 4).

Simplified Notification List
Before this update, the Notifications app had a variety of tabs on the left-hand side, like Game Alerts, Downloads, Uploads, and more. We’ve condensed all of the tabs to a single simplified list, making it easier to see all of your notifications all at-a-glance.

Post on PlayStation Network Activity Feeds
We’re adding the ability to post directly into the Activity Feed, which appears in a variety of places across the console, including What’s New. Under What’s New, you’ll see a new option to post things like text, screenshots, and gifs directly into your Activity Feed. You can also tag games or other users to make sure they don’t miss your post. It’s a great way to show off your greatest triumphs.
Tying into this new feature, Live from PlayStation will show screenshots that users uploaded to PSN as a Public Activity, so you can show off your best gameplay moments not only to your friends, but to users around the globe.

3D Blu-rays on PlayStation VR
If you’re a fan of 3D movies, and you own PlayStation VR, we’ve got good news — this update adds the ability to view 3D movies in stereoscopic 3D directly on the PS VR headset. Grab some popcorn and enjoy!
There are more features included in 4.50, so make sure to keep an eye out for additional info, including launch timing, in the weeks to come.


Improved 2D Images on PS VR
If you’re playing a game in PS VR and you return to the PS4 home screen, you may notice that the resolution looks lower than normal on the TV Social Screen. Following this update, you’ll find that the resolution of the system screen displayed on your TV is significantly better when you’re out of VR mode.
Also, the resolution of Cinematic Mode on PS VR will improve — if your PS VR screen size is set to Small or Medium, the frame rate of content viewed in Cinematic Mode goes up from 90Hz to 120Hz with this update.


Voice Chat for Remote Play
We’re adding voice chat when using Remote Play on Windows PC, Mac or an Xperia device. This is especially useful if you’ve got a gaming session planned with your friends, but you’re away from your system. You can switch your mic on and off via the microphone icon on the Tool Bar of the Remote Play app. 


Off Console Availability
We have a variety of off-console apps and features that make communication with other gamers easier, like the PlayStation App and PS Messages. We’re adding an icon, shaped like a smartphone, which indicates a player is logged into PSN but away from their system.

Boost Mode (for PlayStation 4 Pro only)
PS4 Pro gets a new feature in this update called Boost Mode. This feature has been designed to provide better performance for select legacy titles that have not been patched to take advantage of the PS4 Pro’s faster CPU and its faster and double-sized GPU.

VitaDB – Homebrew Repository By @Rinnegatamante

Multi talented developer Rinnegatamante has created an online repository/database of PS Vita Homebrew and Plugins, here is some information:







What is this?

VitaDB is an online database constantly updated where you can find every single homebrew and plugin ever released for HENkaku/taiHEN.


How it’s made?

VitaDB frontend is completely wrote in JavaScript (AngularJS framework) and HTML. AngularJS technology allows the website to be completely responsive (so, you’ll never see a page reload).
Backend (API) is wrote in PHP.


How it works?

You’ll find on VitaDB two different kind of listers: Homebrew Lister and Plugin Lister.
The Homebrew Lister will show you the totality of our homebrews database allowing the user to directly download such homebrews in .vpk format. If an homebrew requires extra data in ux0:/data folder, a Data Files download will show up to download a .zip archive that can be extracted directly in such folder. Homebrews are split in several categories and the website will allows you to filter between categories and to search a specific set of homebrews in the database.
The Plugin Lister is similar to the homebrew one but doesn’t provide a categorization of the plugins. Plugins will be downloadable in a .zip archive on directly in .suprx/.skprx format.


Who updates the database?

Final goal of the project is to allow users to insert their own homebrews in the database but actually there are some moderators that will update the database when a new homebrew/update will pop out.

VitaShell Design Competition By @theflow0 and @Nzaki0716

I know this is late, but there are still five days left so should be enough time to create a decent theme for the competition.




The creator of VitaShell is holding a competition, where the winner get’s their theme used as the default VitaShell theme, along with a bonus prize from Nzaki0716, here is some information:



I’m currently working on a major VitaShell update which will feature the ability to mount USB Storage Device as Memory Card (ONLY FOR PSTV). Yes, you’ve read it right, you’ll be able to run games and homebrews from your USB Stick.


After one year of development on VitaShell I think it’s time for a new look. So I’m now launching a competition where you guys can submit your themes until the 19.2.2017, then some judges and me (or maybe poll) will pick the best one and this will be used as default theme for the upcoming VitaShell.
You are of course free to design whatever you like, but I highly suggest simplistic themes that give hacker feelings :P
The only obligation is that it must be a brand new theme, not one that has already been released.
There is actually no “price” to win, let’s say it’s more about the pride that thousands of people will use your theme everyday.
Or consider the upcoming VitaShell as a community gift.
