With the latest achievements regarding Kernel Exploits and other useful things for both System Firmware 5.05 and System Firmware 5.53 together with the older exploits like for System Firmware 4.55 or even for System Firmware 1.76 - you have probably already recognized that compared to the PS3 - a lot of have changed for the PS4 when you wanted to play your backups or to install some Homebrew. Instead of installing a Custom Made Firmware (CFW) from a USB-Device, you will use a bug in the Original System Software (OFW) itself to allow such mentioned things. This method isn't that bad but further investigations from the System itself is very limited compared to a CFW like for the PS3, where you had full access and control about your console by doing things whatever you wanted to do. But this could now change for the PS4 with the interesting Project behind #TeamOrbis called "The Mira Project".
The Mira Project is a set of Framework, Plugins, Tools, Payloads, that will gives you more power to control your jailbroken PS4 console. It is a CFW framework for PS4, something like TaiHEN for PS Vita, It is not as robust we are used to back in PS3 days, so it can not be installed permenentaly through modifyed PUP file like what we used to do in PS3 for example Rebug CFW PUP, but it will gives you the CFW functionality once installed and run. The Mira Project is the result of the hard work from the OpenOrbis team. We believe in quality over quantity releases. There are numerious components to the project and each one will be explained below.
Here is the list of components with a description of what they do:
- Previously known as MiraHEN, this has been expanded into a full expansion custom firmware.
- There are many tools included in the Mira project and they are listed out below:
- This is the libc implementation ported for PS4. It's a pain in the ass to compile, just take the pre-built binaries seriously.
- This is the linker to be used with newlib-ps4 to create Orbis compatible ELF files, or you could use CrazyVoid's elfFixupTool.
- This is the communications library that will be specialized for operation with the Mira firmware.
- PS4 Payload Sender
- A simple Android application to send payloads to your PS4.
Mira offer two types of plugins, one is defualt plugins that will be embedded inside MiraFW it self (file transfer, log server, debugger), and the other type is external modules that can be loaded from internel/external HDD for example PS4 Linux Loader.
- PS4 Linux Loader
- A simple plugin that let you run the Linux kernel from a remote device without webkit.
The users guide is found at USERS.md yamsayin' check it out if you want instructions on how to build, install, and use the firmware once it has been installed on the console with any of the methods described within.
You will need VS2017, with Linux plugin and WSL (Ubuntu on Windows) or real Linux machine or Linux VM at least to be able to build the current project.We will post more details about building process here shortly.
- We want to give a special shout out to these people in no particular order:
- Anonymous Contributors (You know who you are)
So what does this mean for the end-user? Technically speaking, this is still no proper Custom Firmware compared to the PS3. Infact, several developers behind #TeamOrbis already confirmed that after a Reboot from your PS4, you will need to install it again similar to previous - as you would call it "HEN-based" exploits based on Webkit. The structure is similar to previous exploits but it is more a Framework then a (simple) "HEN-Exploit". It will give you even more power and control from your PS4 compared to previous exploits which should make things easier in the future for fully investigating the PS4 System itself.
Several Developers also confirms that this "Framework" would be based on System Firmware 5.05, where the goal is to release them together with the Kernel Exploit simultaneously, where the Kernel Exploit is still needed to run this Framework. This makes things interesting because this would mean that you could do things on your PS4 which gives you more power and control about the System itself while still running on a Original Firmware (OFW).
But the most cool thing to see is that with such amount of Developers behind this project, a even more powerful exploit - or even a proper Custom Firmware - looks very promising for the future, especially when the Developers worked on different projects by their own but combining them now together into one. Some of the above mentioned members are also working for an "Open SDK", which is demanded for developing some useful Homebrew Applications. You see that they are taking this whole Project very seriously.
What do you think about this Project? Does it look promising? You are welcome to discuss it down below.

SEN Enabler v6.2.1 - Includes 4.84 Spoof to regain PSN AccessDeveloper @Evilnat was quick to provide a Spoofing solution for 4.83 (& lower) CFW user's who may be making the wise decision of staying on a lower firmware and not so quick to jump to a 4.84 CFW right away that does not have the various supplemental homebrew's and tools updated for 4.84 yet. If you want to stay on top of those release's be sure to checkout this thread in the forum. The Spoof in SEN Enabler allows for a lower firmware to connect to PSN, but also note that it could be a potential trigger for a PSN ban so be aware of that when spoofing. For more info about SEN Enabler you can always checkout the official release and support thread located here in the psx-place forums.Continue reading
4.84 OFW Released - Beware do not updatePlayStation 3 had an official firmware update released with the drop of system update 4.84. Below i provided a small chart for people on other firmwares and their hacks. Currently it unknown what prompted the update, could of been a simple maintenance update, which what appears to be the case on initial inspections. Could the update have something to do with PS Plus *Buy Games from PlayStation Store* ending on the service? Very well could be but that is speculation at this point. PSX-Place will keep you updated of all the changes this update brings. The update has not patched the recent StoreHaxx release which is not something most will use as its simply an IDPS dumper currently (w/ other potentials possiable). Even on 4.83 and looking to exploit, you may want to wait to update until devs in this thread mainly @bguerville and @esc0rtd3w give the okay.
Checkout this thread for FUTURE 4.84 releated released.
Save The Scene v1.1 (Homebrew Game) released by Lapy05575948Cuban developer Lapy05575948 (aka Lapy Games) following the first homebrew release for the PS4 which was a Flappy Bird Clone called Lapy's Chicken . Now the game creator follows that game up with another in yesterday's release with v1.0 of a new PS4 Homebrew Game titled "Save The Scene" and a quick update of v1.1 followed today (that decreased the difficulty that was set a bit high in v1.0). Under the hood the game is built with Unity 3d and is an original creation by the developer for the PS4 along with a Windows version that has been created.as well. The premise of this game surrounds around an evil entity attacking the scene and you must save some of these devs by stopping the bombs (by selecting the right button before the bomb falls) from exploding on their heads . If you prove your are the "chosen one" you may get a working exploit (in the game world lol). There is some enjoyable design elements to this title that were brought to the game by the developer (Lapy05575948) and Xalgovia. Plus for your listening pleasures in this title we can thank retrogamer74 for the sound affects. Included below is video footage/screenshots of this game in action. This PS4 Homebrew requires an exploited PS4 Console (on 5.05 FW) .Continue reading
