PSX-Place.com is dedicated to bringing you the latest Homebrew, Hacking, Exploits, CFW, Jailbreak & PlayStation Scene News to your fingertips

It has been no secret and quite honestly comes to no surprise by the lack of participation in the development circles around the PS4 and more specifically homebrew development on the console, Don't get me wrong there has been various developer's working their tails off and doing some amazing things on the platform and alot of great documentation on the console, which alot of that documentation can found at places such as the PS4DevWiki, but when has a scene or a community been about a few individuals or groups? It never has and no small groups of people can carry a scene by themselves, Around the scene you see things being stated like "anyone can help contribute" and while that is true due to many things being Open Source from some of developer's working on the PS4, However, what can we expect for a platform (past exploited firmware) that never had that current firmware window (as all other exploited devices typically have at some point)? That has been the longstanding issue for the PS4 Homebrew Community by not having an exploit that originates on the current firmware of that time of release. Even if that window is short
And there it is. After other Console Developers like Nintendo, SEGA or ATARI re-released their older but wonderful and classic Home Consoles in it's new and tiny chassis marketed with some catchy words like "Mini", "Retro" or "Flashback", Sony decided "to jump on the bandwagon" by releasing their own Classic Console in a miniature format - namely the "PlayStation Classic". Announced back in September 2018, the PlayStation Classic is a dedicated version of the Original PlayStation (in short "PS1" or as you would know it as "PSX") providing 20 Classic Video Game Titles built-in. And while reviews from other video gaming journalists showed already that sadly, the PlayStation Classic is a bad example how to re-release a "Retro Console" compared to it's competitors, this Thread will help you with Everything you need to know about the Console itself, it's built-in Video Games and how fast several well-known Developers from other Sony Consoles are already tinkering with it to fix several Problems Sony was too lazy for and to provide additional Features like Emulators and other Homebrew etc.​
Following the release of SEN Enabler v6.1.0 that gave support for 4.83 CFW CEX there was an issue with how the application was handling the Cobra Payload and while it would not interfere with the functionality of SEN Enabler and its feature it was having a side affect of things like PS2 ISO's not working, the developer has done alot of work the past month to resolve the issue with this new update of 6.2.0 that is now available for download (see links below). From here I (STLcardsWS) will allow for Evilnat to take over with all the details pertaining to this update that also include a number of other new additions and fixes.

UPDATE (29th Nov.): A quick clarification - No this won't be a PSVITA successor!

Thanks to the "sharp eyes" from our community member @Naked_Snake1995, this Patent Filing doesn't describe a Cartridge using for a PSVITA successor, where he explaines that this Cartridge is already in use for a total different Sony Product sold in South Korea only. You can find his explanation down below while the Original News is kept for reference only. I (Roxanne) have to apologize personally for any missunderstanding!

Folks, we have to talk. Today, well-known Developer @CelesteBlue released a new Kernel Exploit for System Firmware 4.74. Now you will probably think: "Wait a minute, we already have a Kernel Exploit for System Firmware 5.05. Why I would need one for an older System Firmware?" This is a legitimate question and if you have "exploited" your PS4 using System Firmware 5.05 already, then you won't need to do anything. But you don't have to forget that back in Time, when Sony released newer System Firmwares after Version >4.74, like Version 5.05 for example, they included a "banana skin" for PS4 owners with a broken Blu-ray Drive where their Consoles are refused to get updated by giving them the famous "E-801809A8" Error Code in return. And since those users weren't able to update their PS4's to System Firmware 5.05, they were likely being stuck on Version 4.74 without having any chance to exploit their PS4's at all. But luckily, Developers like @CelesteBlue - together in Collaboration with @SpecterDev and @notzecoxao - didn't forget those users by giving them a Kernel Exploit for System Firmware 4.74, so they can overcome those "security measures" made by Sony and by making their Consoles updatable again, so they can enjoy the latest PS4 Kernel Exploit as well!​
Well, that was fast. After they announced their (delayed) "Progress Report for September", the great Team behind RPCS3 didn't wanted to "leave you out in the rain" again. So here is the "October Progress Report" which shows again how much they are hard-working to make this Emulator better and better by making more PS3 Games compatible with their Emulator. And speaking about PS3 Games, if you watched the latest Progress Reports from the last few months closely, you will have probably recognized that with every new Progress Report, more and more AAA Titles were getting more Support and a better Compatibility from Time to Time, even with supporting a 4K Output Resolution. This month isn't a exception and the Team is proud to announce that "Yakuza Kenzan" is fully playable now. Now you will think: "Wait a Minute - I never heard about "Yakuza Kenzan" ??? That's right, this is one Game of the "Yakuza Series" which was released in Japan only as "Ryū ga Gotoku Kenzan" so it never saw a "Western Release". That's even cooler that such a AAA Game which wasn't available for most of the people are now playable for everyone, even with a higher Resolution as the original PS3 would be able to do so. How "Butt ugly" is this? :P​
