  1. http://www.psdevwiki.com/ps4/Game_Titles The page has been updated with all the lists and spreadsheets I could find. Please add to it!
  2. Could this be used in conjunction with an old web browser exploit (or yours) for a HEN?
  3. Gotcha, thanks zeco! Yeah, that's what I was thinking, but I figured I'd ask since there was a downgrader update for DEX that doesn't require flashing. Guess it doesn't matter though since it doesn't exist.
  4. Hey people! I had a hypothetical question for the seasoned vets. If someone were to obtain a min praxis 3.56 DECH console (if they exist), would they be able to get CFW on it? I know there is a 3.55 DEX downgrader, but if the min praxis is 3.56, that wouldn't be an option, but for regular consoles a 3.56 min praxis can be flashed with a patched dump. Cheers
  5. Hello! My Blu-Ray drive is broken in my CECH-2504, and I want to remove it since I have no need for it to be fixed. I'm looking into putting an extra 1TB 3.5" HDD that I have into it, but I believe the standard HDD power plug (made for 2.5" HDDs) might not be able to properly power the 3.5" drive, and the devwiki says it may be unsafe, so I'm looking to power it off of the Blu-Ray power line. Does anyone know the pinout of the Blu-Ray or maybe alt points for it? Or do you think there's a better way to tap into the required 12V? Cheers!
  6. Gotcha, thanks for the reply! Things are starting to click a little better as I'm looking at the Keys page on the Devwiki. Do you know of either a lecture, video, or flowchart that may help explaining order and precedence of keys? I see this link is referenced in the wiki, but is dead: http://www.mhlavac.info/wp-content/uploads/downloads/2010/03/lec2.pdf
  7. tl;dr version: Can you downgrade to any OFW firmware above your minimum praxis firmware, regardless of model? So I've been around the end-user scene for a little while now, and I just had a random question pop into my head. I'd like to get a better understanding of the inner workings of downgrading on a conceptual level. Please correct me on anything wrong with the below statements. My understanding of downgrading is that when you patch a backup, it changes the ROS0 and ROS1 (which are the core operating system and a copy of the operating system prior to that one for factory recovering purposes) to both appear to be equal to the minimum praxis firmware version so that it allows you to pass the "Is the firmware a higher version?" check and install 3.55 OFW or a firmware that was signed with the 3.55 private key. Theoretically, a Super Slim with a min praxis of 4.25 could be downgraded to 4.25 OFW (or higher) if a patched dump is flashed to it, and you install the signed 4.25, right? Could SuperSlims or CECH300X's be downgraded to 4.70 to use Pexploit, or to 4.55 to use ODE's without swap disks? I'm assuming there's a catch since I've never heard of anyone doing that. If there is, what is the catch? Cheers!
  8. Hey man, do you know of any good starting points for how to actually work with it, like a series of "hello world" to more advanced tutorials? It seems all of the links for tutorials are dead and not on archive.org. I know a few programming languages, but I'm at a loss with how to get started with this environment. I've got the Windows version of PSDK3v2 set up and I can download the Irisman source and compile and create a PKG out of it; but I have no idea where to get started with the formats, what files I need to create or how to get them working with it. My end-game is to make a CBR Reader, which would involve a basic directory-browsing menu to select the CBR, extracting the single images (pages) out of the CBR, and binding a controller input to change to the next image and maybe have analog stick to scroll and zoom. Alternatively, I could just port a FOSS CBR reader of the same language, but I still don't know how to work in the environment. Sorry for the extremely basic questions; it just seems all the resources are dead and psdevwiki doesn't have the basics for new devs. Cheers!
  9. Hah, good point The box should be called "Brewology Store Olds"
  10. Wall of quoted text incoming! That's odd, WebMan MOD has been removed from Brewology? It looks like it was left over from the original owner (when there was like 3 pages on the wiki). I don't check the links often on pages, since I've put 99% of linked pages on archive.org or are Brewology, so good catch! Most users won't really care where the information came from though, and if they really want to know, they're capable of just Googling it. Like I said, I might link every page to a release page (if it has an active one) for a full features list, but right now internal content is my priority, not external content. It's inevitable unless every page is checked routinely. With ~70 pages, that's pretty time consuming for such rare events (since most of it's Brewology and archive.org), so I just wait for users to report a downed link. The only ones I've seen reported is for downgrader firmwares though, since they seem to get taken down from file host sites often. Oh no, you're fine. It's good to get critical feedback on it. Ugh, you're right. Burned it with fire, and updated it to match the sidebar sites. What about the front page shout-out though? I'll take a look at the rest of your suggestions and see what I can do. Thanks for all the help! Edit: I see on the Cobra page you mentioned "The PSX video problem. When the psx emulator is launched "naturally" by vsh.self, it sets the video mode parameters. This would cause NTSC games work badly on PAL, and viceversa.". It's interesting because I have a user right now with issues playing a PAL game on a NTSC console with Cobra. Edit2: Also, Ilike how you have the page formatted for CFW releases with the different tabs. Any idea if the formatting and tabs work with archive.org? I'll probably link those when I get around to linking release pages.
  11. Ah, I'll give it a try. I was hoping someone would have the VM handy, but that'll do. Thanks!
  12. Again, it's a single person effort and I admitted in the OP that "there may be minor errors". So far, you haven't pointed out any inaccurate information (aside from maybe the Kingsman credit), which I would immediately fix, just areas where more details should be added which I've taken note of. " I think mistake #1 is you think ps3hax.net is a viable top website ... people actually think [PS3HAX] is still a viable source of news and information and it simply is not anymore." I don't support PS3hax or anything; I just used PS3hax as an example because, like you said, many people still use that as their go-to site and it's been down a lot recently, hence the download mirror page. I've only used it as a place for questions/answers because of the large user base that replies relatively quickly. I'm not saying this wiki should become the golden standard that everyone should use. On the contrary, I started it solely for a resource for my subs (/r/ps3homebrew and /r/ps3hacks), and to prevent the thousands of repeat questions that plague scene sites (how many times have you heard "Can I put CFW on my Super Slim?"). So far, it's helped a lot of people out and has brought a lot of traffic to the subs, with a significant decrease in "noob questions" and complaints of dead links to info. I just had asked advice from GregoryRasputin, and he thought it should be front-paged. Edit: Fixed up the PSNpatch page. Honestly it was embarrassing, It didn't even include the CID changing process on it even though the process was on the "Unbanning" tutorial page. Added RAP/EDAT activation, timed trial unlocking, and got rid of that damn Tortuga link.
  13. Thanks for the feedback @STLcardsWS. I realize that information is missing and that some of the credits information may be inaccurate (honestly that was probably the hardest part to track down because there are so many collabs under a single name, people releasing other people's work, and anonymous releases). for releases such as CFW you have no information and tell users to check out those places for info" The firmware page is meant to be a mirror page for if the main release site is down (for example PS3hax has been going down often recently), because I had a lot of people asking for download links, especially for the downgrader firmwares since those links are dead on release posts. I may take your advice and try an incorporate the release link in the future. Do you know of any other websites of developers aside from Rebug and PS3ITA that I could add? The best information and most accurate info here you say? Yea some outdated info with what is that a tortuga-cove link: ??? To be fair, that link was there before I touched it, and I never claimed it was the "best" or "most accurate" But, point taken, I've added this to my todo list to fix up. What more information would you recommend adding on WebMAN? ^ that is funny... Again, I'm prone to have a few errors, especially in the credits page. When I had wrote that, I had looked and only seen posts by him. I just removed that line though. i think its a great foundation but needs some additional details Thanks So far, all I have is the basics of anything useful I could think of for end-users. It's at least at the point where when someone asks "What can I do with CFW?", you can point them to that page and a ton of options are laid out for them. This is the product of ~3.5 months that I've been working on it between 58 hour work weeks, and relaxing time. 65 pages ain't bad given those circumstances. There's many more things that could be added, I just need to know what they are! As if this can't be maintained is the exact moment this becomes exactly what you describe your description and it will be worse as it will be DEAD-END information with very little resources linked. I plan on maintaining it for a long while. I've also created /r/ps4homebrew and it's (basically non-existent) wiki that I'll be building up. Aside from CFW release threads, and the already linked Brewology pages, what resources do you think I should link?
  14. IIRC (with PS3 at least), BD-J allows you to send JAR files to the HDD with no limit on how much space you can take up. I think you could run emulators from a Blu-Ray, have it create save files, wrap the save file in a JAR, and then store it on the HDD so you can have saved games. You might be able to store ROMs on the PS4 HDD as well if wrapped in a JAR file. The one big downfall I think is that there's no audio, and I'm not sure if it'd be possible to restore audio. Not a scene dev, but just some thoughts.
  15. Let me know what you guys think of it! I'm open to feedback, suggestions, and fixing tiny spelling errors. You can reach me here, or on reddit with the handle /u/Derf_Jagged
