We have seen alot of progress with PS4 development lately in the form of backing up some games & even some simple POC that showcases a simple PoC of homebrew abilities., but honestly I am not very excited about it yet. While the exploits/development are progressing well, they are restricted to a low firmware of 1.76 which I am sure most of you are on a firmware that is much higher. We have no downgrade solutions for the PS4 and even if we did, its still a v1.76 firmware and many of the PS4 features are not contained in those early firmwares. You are restricted to a very limited number of PS4 Games that the console can even play, as many games ( a large majority ) are signed with a firmware higher then 1.76. Meaning that they can not be played on a console with a 1.76 based FW, So this takes alot of the appeal the PS4 gives a user in the first place, but can that trade-off be justified in the form of receiving new features an exploited firmware can give?
Welcome Skyrim modders! This thread is a Skyrim Elite Edition modding guide where I share my research, tutorials, and other useful things. Since Elite Electronics is now done it's up to us (the users) to continue a beautiful project. If you are someone who messes around with Fallout/TES games a lot on PS3 then contact me as I am starting a research group of my own (called 5yk3). Right now there are no video guides, but I will get to making those soon. These are my methods and they work for me, so if you know a better way please inform me so I can check it out. Thanks and have a fun time modding. :-p
Rinnegatamante is back with another solution and release for the PS Vita (& PSTV) community with the release of a new plugin called Savedata Decrypter / Redirecter. The idea behind the plugin is to allow user's the ability to re-direct your SaveData to a different storage location, ur0,ux0,uma0 are all now in play for re-directing your saves, but when redirecting the saves also are decrypted which opens the door for various cheats and modifications to be done to the save files. Usuage and additional information can be found in the included release notes of this new plugin for HENkaku (Enso).​
Its here, the anticipated Zombiebound v0.1.0, the homebrew game by VitaHEX games running on the Lua Player Plus Engine that was announced recently. this is a great homebrew game for HENkaku enabled vita's / pstv's devices. Zombiebound is inspired by the Call of Duty Zombies mini games, where the objective is to survive each wave of Zombie invasions that progresses in difficulty as each round or wave passes. The developer has plans for updates of this game, but I personally had an early preview being a patreon for VitaHEX and the game was quite enjoyable in the initial release as I was mowing down zombies to acculturate additional points to purchase the new weapons in true CoD Zombie fashion. Game is a great homebrew and we hope to see some additional updates, the good news there the dev has plans for future updates with a small roadmap of upcoming changes, but also anyone can contribute to the Lua based project with new maps or anything. See all details in the release notes from VitaHEX Games
Recently developer cxziaho released the fontRedirect plugin, but the dev did not stop with just the plugin, developing farther a new app FontInstaller (installable vpk) is introduced for HENkaku which will install the plugin but also contains a useful interface for selecting various fonts stored in ux0:data/font/. However do note there is still some bugs when changing font in some games that will result in a crash. So expect some errors and use that at your own risk, but great to see a new level of customaztion on our exploited PS Vita's & PlayStation TV's.

If you have an exploited PlayStation TV or PS Vita then here is a release from developer Rinnegatamante that is impressive. but we must go back a few days ago where the developer announced Lua Player Plus (lpp) was now capable of playing video's. While adding such a feature to lpp does give the platform a magnitude of possibilities. One such use comes with this latest release of tools called Video Bubbles Creator, with this tool for Windows (64-bit) Systems you can easily take any video file and convert it to a pshv video (PlayStation Homebrew Video) format, which then creates a bubble utilizing lpp new video capabilities by launching the content seamlessly . The tool offers some customization to the bubble appearance, as well some playback options.​
