    Win A ESP8266 Wi-Fi Board For PS4

    Here is my submission
  2. @rednekcowboy Nice work man!
  3. Hi Guys. Welcome to the PS4 Hacking/Modding scene and welcome to 2018. Today i will be showing you guys, how to run the PS4 4.05 exploit on any PS4 (brand new out of the box, or which was once activated and used) which is on firmware ,<= 4.05, and how to open the Advanced ★Debug Settings on the ps4 You will need a PC, a PS4 on firmware equal to 4.05 or lower, and a network connection. Now i have a video here showing how to achieve this below, but if you would rather read on how to do this, please scroll down further and i will write the instructions below. Please make sure to follow every step carefully. DISCLAIMER! Please be careful with debug settings as there are options in there which can brick your PS4 if you do not know what you are doing. Please steer clear of IDU mode as that will turn your PS4 into a kiosk. I highly recommend using an Ethernet cable to connect the PS4 to a Router and another Ethernet cable to connect the PC to the same router. I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BRICK OR DAMAGE ANY OF YOUR HARDWARE. So please use care and if you don't know what something is, don't touch it Happy Modding. Video: WRITTEN Tutorial: Ok guys so first off you will want to download these files below as you will need every single one of them to fully follow this tutorial. Downloads ---➣ ps4-exploit-host - https://github.com/Al-Azif/ps4-exploit-host/releases ---➣ Advanced ★DEBUG Settings Payload - https://mega.nz/#!O5hiHRzK!jh6nKnFe_w5jXUnOz_fMwYueZkW1u7tfxZMfX86Q-YE ---➣ Python 3 - https://www.python.org/downloads/ If you need to update to 4.05, please select a link from below and download the 4.05 firmware. ---➣ Firmware Files (GBATemp) - https://gbatemp.net/threads/ps4-firmw... ---➣ Firmware Files (sce.party) - https://sce.party/?page=firmwares Right you have everything now? Good. Make sure you extract all the zip files into their own respected folders, inside a folder with all your ps4 hack files Next you will have to install python. Please follow on screen prompts and install it. Ok so now we have set up the environment we need to run the server on the PC. IF YOU NEED TO UPDATE YOU PS4 AND HAVE DOWNLOADED THE UPDATE FILES, THIS WILL BE THE TIME TO UPDATE. - to update you might need to go into recovery mode if your ps4 has already downloaded a later version of the firmware. - Make a folder on the root of your usb called 'PS4' and inside that make a new folder called 'UPDATE' if you have done so then you can past your 'PS4UPDATE.pup' into the update folder. - from here you will need to figure out how you are going to update, weather it will be from the home menu or recovery. make sure you check what version is showing up on the home menu prior to updating if you will be going that way. Now that you are on firmware 4.05 we can commence Jailbreaking and setting up the exploit. Start up the server - Please take the 'fullDebugSettings405' file you downloaded (or modified) and place it into the payloads folder in the 'ps4-exploit-host' folder - Open a CMD window as admin - cd into the directory where your 'ps4-exploit-host' folder is located - Once you are there you will need to type 'Start.py' and it will start the server - (if you get any errors you might need to make sure ports 80 and 53 are not in use by other applications - Then press 1 and hit enter - (if you get any errors you might need to make sure ports 80 and 53 are not in use by other applications - You should see a message telling you that the server is running and you might get a check box that comes up asking to allow python to access the network, tick both boxes and press 'Allow' - if all is still well and you have no errors, then we are ready to move to the PS4. (NOTE: you sould see your DNS ip displayed on the console) First, you will need to go to network settings on the PS4. You will need to make your settings as such: - IP - 192.168.1.6 (or you can leave it as whatever you want if you will be changing the IP in the payload file) - Subnet mask - 255.255.255.0 - Default gateway - (you need to find out what your routers ip is and put it in) - DNS (This will be displayed on the CMD prompt console when we run the server) - leave DNS 2 as - 0.0.0.0 Make sure to save the settings and do a network test - As long as the PS4 obtains an IP and has internet access then this is fine. PSN will fail. Now that is all set up, we will now launch the exploit. Please head over to the user manuals at the top of settings, open it and observe the CMD console. It should start displaying more information, and ask if you would like to inject the FTP payload (fullDebugSettings405.bin). - Press 1 and hit enter. to inject the payload. Once an Error Pops up on the screen, simply back out with Button, and go back to settings. Scroll down to the bottom and there should be ★Debug Settings. Profit? Hope this helped you guys. Please make sure to ask any questions you may have below and i will do my best to help you. Sooooooo..... If you're still reading this you might have got yourself stuck in IDU mode.... I told you not to do it, Anyways. Thanks to Al Azif for the Method to get out of IDU mode, and thanks to @dev-ps3 for the tip.

    [Tutorial] Advanced ★Debug Settings for PS4 on 4.05

    No worries mate. glad to help

    [Tutorial] Advanced ★Debug Settings for PS4 on 4.05

    XD ps3 debug is a bit different to ps4. sony may have removed official fetures. 5.05 just dropped. i have not updated yet but it will be golden firmware soon
  6. Hi guys. As you might already know, there is a 5.05 jailbreak in the works thanks to Specterdev. What you might not know is that there is an individual who goes by the name of Mathieulh. This developer seems to be sitting on a Kexploit for firmware up to and including 5.53. He has not said too much, but he seems to be a trusted Dev from long ago, so i do not see any reason to doubt his claims. I will quote a few of his tweets below. Don't like reading? Check out the video summary down below! You can take this however you want, but i would not be updating expecting a release for this as there has been nothing officially announced, this is just a bit of hope for anyone who is past 5.05 at this current point in time. As always, it is recommended to stay on the lowest possible firmware while waiting for a jailbreak, or if you have a jailbroken system, it is recommended to stay on your jailbreak until the new one is released, and tested for a few weeks. Stay Classy guys, catch you all next time! Image:

    PS4 5.05 JAILBREAK IMMINENT AND 5.53 JAILBREAK TEASED?

    I agree man. I'm sad there hasn't been that much homebrew on the last few exploits. But we are still advancing and it will be nice to see what this team has to offer

    How to | Install Free MC Boot on most slim PS2

    This tutorial is tested to work with any game! its because we are modifying the actual file that the ps2 boots into and tricking it into loading homebrew, rather tham modifying a file on a game menu. This way has a much higher success rate once you get the timing right
  10. Hi guys. Throwing it back old school with a PS2 Tutorial. Today i will be showing you guys how to install FMCB with ANY ps2 game disc on most slim consoles (not including 9x models - these are untested) Please watch the video below for instructions, otherwise please read below, there will be a written tutorial for more advanced modders who do not need videos. Okay guys so what you will need today ---➣ Phillips screw driver ---➣ Flat head screw driver ---➣ Magnet (not needed but good to hold screws) ---➣ Hobby Knife (not needed but Recommended) ---➣ Memory card ---➣ USB (Formatted to FAT) ---➣ At least 2 burnable DVD discs ---➣ A PS2 game to do the swap with ---➣ Blue Tack or tape of a sort (blue tack recommended) Okay, Firstly you will need to disassemble your ps2. There are 6 screws on the slim console underneath it, the back 2 rubber feet come off, and then just pop off the remaining 4 covers. one of them may be under the warranty seal (cut that crap out... there ain't no more warranty) Once you remove these screws, you must separate the ps2 from the back first at the fatter section (where the power port is), then move to the front where the memory card slot is, and finally move down to the thin end. You will need to tilt the cover up from the fat end in order to separate/gain leverage on the thin end Once you have the lid off, congratulations!!! now we can jam the sensors Please see image below of sensor locations. one is on the power button board and the other is next to the back of the disc drive caddy to the left of it on the main board. You can use either Tape or Bluetack to keep the sensors down, it is recommended you use Bluetack as i found it stuck better and did not come off at all. Now you have set your PS2 up for the swap trick. Congratulations!!!! On to the computer Download my package full of all the files you will need. otherwise you can download these files from sksapps.com ---➣ MY PACKAGE ---➣ Apache1.1 ---➣ Apache3Preview ---➣ COGSWAP ---➣ uLaunchELF_v4.12_CD OR uLaunchELF_v4.12_DVD ---➣ Noobie_Package Download and extract these to a folder where you would like to save them Now Grab a disc you do not care if you damage as we will be using this for the swap Take note of the disc. It is recommended that you use a DVD as the swap disc. this can be seen on the front. it will say "DVD" or "Compact Disc" Insert the game you have chosen into your pc's DVD drive Now open Apache3Preview (DO NOT LET IT UPDATE - it will not function if it does) You will need to click on the drop down menu and select your DVD drive. Once the DVD is loaded up, you will need to click the option to "Create ISO" its the one that looks like a disc with an arrow Wait until ISO is successfully created. Once this is done you will need to open Apache1.1 Press the Browse button in Apache1.1 and select your newly created ISO file You should now be able to see the files inside the ISO Now open windows explorer and go to the DVD drive. Open the directory to view files on disc. It should look the same as Apache1.1 Locate the file that says system.cnf Copy and paste this file anywhere as we only need it for just a moment. If you have a text editor you can open this in your text editor to view contents, otherwise change file type to .txt and open with windows notepad on the first line you should see something like this BOOT2 = cdrom0:\SLES_536.36;1 Now, my one says "SLES_536.36", but your one will most likely be different. take note of the file name. You can now close the explorer window with the Disc open and go back to Apache1.1 Now you should see a file with the same name as the one from the text document. (This is the file we are going to modify) You must now extract your version of Cogswap and rename it to the name of the file on your disc. (for example, i would name my cogswap as "SLES_536.36") Now you must Right Click on the cogswap file we just renamed and press "PROPERTIES" to view file information. You should now be able to view the size of the file in Bytes (Perfect!!) Take note of the size, keep the window open Go back to Apache1.1 and Select the file we are modifying Click on menu option "ISO Tools" and then click "change TOC for selected file" You must modify the size value to the one of cogswap shown in properties. it is show as a byte value. DO NOT MODIFY LBA [make big an bold and red] Click update! Now select the file we are replacing again and go to the same menu like so -- ISO Tools --> Updaate selected file Now browse for the cogswap file we renamed to the one on the disc, select it and open it. This should now be updated in the ISO (Yayyy!!!) Close Apache1.1 as it auto saves to the ISO Now chose a method of your own to burn this ISO to a DVD, i just used the burn option in Apache3Preview. MAKE SURE YOU SELECT SLOWEST BURN SPEED (YOU CAN NOT USE REWRITABLE MEDIA - DVD RW) Press Burn and wait... Congratulations!!! You now have your swap disc We must now create the uLaunchELF_v4.12 disc Decide weather you are using a CD or a DVD to launch uLaunchELF_v4.12 Open the RAR file and either Burn the DVD .ISO to a DVD, or burn the CD .bin file to a CD with a burning tool of choice Now we have uLaunchELF_v4.12 Disc!!!! Last Step for the computer Insert a USB of choice (no need for anything larger than 500mb) You must format this USB to FAT. This can be achieved by right clicking on the USB in explorer and selecting format --> FAT --> Quick --> start (BE WARNED THIS WILL WIPE ALL FILES OFF USB) Now open Noobie_Package and copy "INSTALL" folder and "FREE_MCBOOT.ELF" to your usb That is all for the computer now guys. On to the tricky part Booting Cogswap Start off by inserting the genuine PS2 Disc into drive Please Read this a few times before attempting Congratulations, that was the hardest part!!! Now that you have cogswap open, if you selected burning Ulaunch to a DVD you can remove the Genuine game disc and insert the ulaunch disc If you did not, please open this spoiler Now insert your USB with noobie package on it Now you can press [X] to boot the Ulaunch disc Once loaded press [O] and navigate to "Mass" directory and hit [O] Now you should see "FREE_MCBOOT.ELF" Navigate to this and hit [O] to launch Tadaaaaa, you now have the FreeMC Boot installer open. Make sure you have a memory card inserted Select what you would like to use for your boot method. (Normal or Multi) I selected Multi so i can use the card on other systems Wait until it is finished. This may take a few minutes One it is complete, navigate to "Launch FMCB" and Voula, you should be booted into FMCB Attempt to reboot your console to double check it worked, make sure to remove all discs, you should be greeted with FMCB menu Congratulations you have now successfully installed FMCB without having to pay a cent for any games or swap discs like 007. You can now remove any bluetack, sensor jamers you used and reverse disassembly to reassemble. Let me know if you have any questions! Peace out guys!

    I agree man! anything is better than nothing and yes, people don't know the amount of time that goes into coding because they have never tried, but when people start to try, they realize how hard it really is, and that's when people will appreciate the work. Regardless of a release, even showing it is possible is still something that's better than nothing, and i'm sure if the right people ask him for assistance, he will be happy to help them. But anyways, just thinking out loud.

    I don't know man. i'm not taking sides as i am just reporting on what i have seen. You have probably been round a lot longer than me so i do not doubt your judgement. But what i have seen is that he is apparently a part of this open orbis team working on a CFW. not sure what he has done for the team but seems to be in it.

    How to | Install Free MC Boot on most slim PS2

    Hey mate. It sounds like you might be trying to boot a version which does not work or it has not been burned correctly. which version of ulaunch did you download from the archives?

    No idea why it is detecting a virus. Lots of antivirus have false positives when they have never seen a file before. There might be something in there that one of the antivirus has never seen, it could also be the nature of how the tools work. Apache both connect to internet to download updates, maybe a virus software does not like this. If you do not trust it i would recommend completing the process in a virtual machine. I have tested all on my machine without any issues.
