It was nearly 7 years ago since we have seen a PS3 Official Firmware Exploited (3.55 being the last), which predates many PS3 models and thus why those later Slim & SuperSlim models could never install Custom Firmware (CFW) and/or Downgrade. However that could all change as a team of three have been developing a new project (4.81 OFW Exploit) called PS3Xploit. The "Unhackable PS3 models" will be a term of the past, but the exploits not quite there yet but the possibility of a HENkaku (vita) style hack is very plausible. Currently the exploit has allowed for access to enable Flash dumps on all consoles, Then Write access to Flash, unhackables (25xx +) will not be able to write but all previous PS3 will so that means Goodbye Hardware Flashers and Hello Software Downgradrs. The team is consisting of psx-place's very own @bguerville, @esc0rtd3w and W form the team behind PS3Xploit.
Developer @Zar is back with a new update to ManaGunZ, so that means there must be alot of new additions and features with this update, and the developer did not disappoint while it might be some time between updates. Each update continues to pack a huge punch and v1.30 is no exception. As with any update there is some maintenance & bug fixes to be cleaned up, but alot of neat things have been added with this update PS2 CONFIG File Management system has been added, PS2 Configs have been huge in improving PS2 Compatibility on the Software Emulator. Check out this psx-place discussion ( with community developer's and scene veterans as they figure out the PS2 Configs for various games and engines..), PS2 BIN/CUE format is now supported s well, Added Remote Control Feature, A welcomed feature in the form a Plugin Manager also appears in this update. Plus a vareity of additional features outlined in the extensive changelog for this recommended homebrew for your PS3 by developer @Zar
We all like a bit of eye candy and customization on our homebrew devices. Well developer 1upus has created a new utility for vita / pstv homebrew community. As this (vpk). You may recall about a year (Oct 2016) when DarkBlack711 (reddit) @atreyu187 (psx-place) detailed methods how to remove Ads and replace with custom entries such as homebrew shortcuts. Since that time we have not seen the process mature much or many tools released around it but now thanks to 1upus there seems to be a user-friendly solution that can be done on the device it self with this homebrew that is an installed vpk for HENkaku (3.60) exploited PS Vita & PlayStation TV devices. Add some custom looks to your Live Area Screen with Quick Launch Installer (v0.2 currently). We hope to see this utility mature, devs like feedback and idea's especially these projects that are early in development..​
The Homebrew Store (Brewology.com) has made a huge announcement today via website owner @monkeymaximus here at the PSX-Place forums, As brewology is now supporting PS Vita / PlayStation TV Homebrew Downloads. If you have a Jailbroken (CFW) PS3 then I am sure you have ran across brewology a time or two finding some PS3 homebrew. The website has an easy to consume layout with plenty of information and source links for additional details, While VitaDB is an excellent resource for homebrew, they do have a big hole in regards to information/Source links about the projects, so certain user's may be able to DL but not always know how to properly use various apps . Our own PSX-Place Download Sections is an advanced library and is great but it also has an issue as it lacks some needed updates (anyone interested to help us?). So hopefully brewology can be to the PS Vita what it was on the PS3, with a bit of help from the community I am sure brewology Vita will be just as great.
PS4 hacker qwertyoruiop has been making light work of the PS4 on firmware 5.00, first he showed a webkit exploit running when he tweeted the screenshot via his twitter feed over the weekend, at the time the hacker was also suggesting he had found several bugs to gain a kernel exploit. Yesterday a simple tweet was made by Qwertyoruiop "ps4 kernel code exec on 5.00 achieved at last!" followed by the screenshot posted today as seen below of the kernel exploit being loaded in the PS4 web-browser. Now this is good news, but i must give a warning about getting too excited as the dev has not released previous exploits. Its remains a mystery to when a PS4 exploit may be released to the public, but we do know there is alot of development going on with the PS4 by some talented guys and at some point will be very beneficial to many. A current exploit is so close but also so far away but nonetheless this progress is exciting to see.
As mentioned a few days ago in PSX-Place's The FEED, VitaHEX Games has a new homebrew for exploited PSTV / VITA that is influenced by the popular Nintendo Switch. SwitchView UI is a homebrew app that allows you to launch HOMEBREW from a Switch like interface as seen in the provided screenshots. This app (powered by Lua Player Plus (lpp)) will only show homebrew (games/apps) stored in "ux0". Perhaps the LiveArea is not your favorite area to launch homebrew then here an option for you, check it out and give the developer some feedback or even idea's on future projects
Famed Vita developer Rinnegatamante has released yet project for your PS Vita (& PSTV) that will inject some classic emulation into your HENkaku exploited devices. MicroCHIP is an emulator for the classic CHIP-8 / SUPERCHIP -8. This emulator is powered by Lua Plus Player (Vita) and provides various features for your Retro Experience​
