    • PS4 Exploit Host

      What is this?

      This is an easy way for anyone to host their own exploit for the PS4 on their LAN. Features include:
      • Hosts your choice of exploit
      • Sends your choice of payload after a successful exploit
      • Blocks PSN domains from resolving (Stops accidental updates and block telemetry)
      • Serves a specific firmware update to your PS4
      • Works on just about every platform
      If you do not want to host the package yourself you can use my remote DNS. See the Using remote DNS section below.

      PLEASE READ THIS README AND THE FAQ BEFORE POSTING AN ISSUE.

      Requirements
      • If you are not using a binary release you will need Python 3
      • Root privileges on non-Windows machines

      How to download

    • Using remote DNS (Run Nothing Locally)
      1. Make sure the PS4 is on firmware 5.05 or lower (Settings > System > System Information).
        • If your firmware version is >5.05 you are out of luck there is no public exploit available and you cannot downgrade.
      2. On your PS4 go to Settings > Network > Setup Network to setup a network. When you get to DNS Settings select Manual and set the Primary to 165.227.83.145 and the Secondary DNS to 108.61.128.158 or visa-versa.
        • If your firmware version is <5.05 you will get a network update available. This is for 5.05.
        • If you already have an official updated above 5.05 downloaded you must delete it first.
      3. On the PS4, go to Settings > User's Guide and select it. The exploit selection should appear.
        • You can also open browser and the default homepage will be the exploit selection.
      4. If you use Original you will need to use another program to send a payload.

    • How to run (Run Locally)
      1. Download the files (As shown in the "How to download" section above)
      2. Double click the executable (ps4-exploit-host.exe, start.py, etc). If it starts with no errors, note the IP given
        • Alteratively run it from the command line (ps4-exploit-host.exe, ./ps4-exploit-host, python start.py, etc)
        • If you are not root when running on a non-Windows machine you need to use sudo
      3. On your PS4 Settings > Network > Setup Network to setup a network. When you get to DNS Settings select Manual and set the Primary and Secondary DNS to the IP address you noted above.
      4. Make sure the PS4 is on firmware version 5.05 (Settings > System > System Information). If it is not use the jump to the "How to use the Updater" section before continuing
        • If your firmware version is >5.05 you are out of luck there is no public exploit available and you cannot downgrade.
      5. On the PS4, go to Settings > User's Guide and select it. The exploit should run and there should be output on the script window.
      6. If applicable for your exploit the script will prompt you to choose a payload to send. You may send any payload located in the payloads folder.
      7. When done use Ctrl+C to cleanly close the application


      Note: You can edit settings.json to modify the hosts behavior. There is a section below with more info.

    • Running on Raspberry Pi
      While the "How to run" section applies to the Pi as well there are some more complex options people may want to use for the Pi like running without any network whatsoever.
      • To run as a standalone device that you plug directly into your PS4 though ethernet go here (Supports any Pi with a ethernet port)
      • To run as a WiFi access point for your PS4 go here (Officially supports RPi 3 currently, may work on others with WiFi adapter)

    • How to use the built in updater
      If you already have an official updated above 5.05 downloaded you must delete it first.
      1. Follow the "How to run" section until it says to come here
      2. Put the system update in the updates folder as PS4UPDATE_SYSTEM.PUP
        • Optionally put the recovery update in the updates folder as PS4UPDATE_RECOVERY.PUP
          5.05 SYS MD5: F86D4F9D2C049547BD61F942151FFB55
          5.05 REC MD5: C2A602174F6B1D8EF599640CD276924A
      3. Change the "Update" section in settings.json to match your PUP files.
      4. MAKE SURE THE DNS IS SET CORRECTLY!
      5. SEE #3 I'M SO SERIOUS!
      6. There should be a different page on the System Software Update > View Details option on the PS4. It will be obvious!
        • The PS4 is not using the right DNS if you get the standard Sony changelog page. STOP IMMEDIATELY AND RESTART THE ENTIRE PROCESS
      7. Run a system update on your PS4 system.
      8. Return to the "How to run" section

      Modifying settings.json

      • It's probably a good idea to make a backup of the default settings.json just in case. COMING SOON

      Contributing

      • You can check the issue tracker for my to do list and/or bugs. Feel free to send a pull request for whatever. Be sure to report any bugs, include as much information as possible.

      What if a new exploit is released?

      • You should just be able to place the exploit files in the exploit directory. The exploit will automatically add the exploit to the menu.
        • ex. exploits/firmware_version/exploit_name/index.html

      Why do you commit so many little changes, tweaks, etc?
      • I have no self control... it also lets people see the actual development. From barely working chicken scratch to actual code.
