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.

PS4 Meet "The Mira Project" - a (kind-of) CFW for your PS4 by #TeamOrbis

4.85 Flash Writer Released (CFW PS3 Models Only) - Now go from 4.85 OFW to 4.85 HFW to a 4.85 CFWIt looks like the 4.85 landscape is starting to take shape now as developer's around the scene have been updated the homebrew, utilities and tools that require updates (not all things require updates) and now the PS3Xploit Team released one of the missing pieces. The Flash Writer for 4.85 HFW has now arose and now you can make the jump from 4.85 OFW >> 4.85 HFW >> Execute Flash Writer >>> Install a 4.85 CFW. This release (utility) is ONLY for PlayStation 3 models that can install a Custom FirmWare, if your model can not install a CFW then look at PS3HEN as the next best alternative to cfw, which the team has an update around the corner as well (stay tuned for that soon), but back to the Flash Writer, If your are new to the tool that is executed from the PS3 Internet Browser, it simply provides those cfw capable models with the ability to install a Custom Firmware after the tool has done its magic to your console's internal flash. However, you must follow all instructions for a clean installation to avoid any issues during the process on the fully softmod exploit..Continue reading
ManaGunZ v1.36 & v1.37: NEW PS3HEN Support , New Features & 4.85 (CEX) Support by ZarDeveloper @Zar made an update for 4.85 firmware (cex) support for the popular ps3 homebrew ManaGunZ, but also late last month the developer made a huge update, that has added many new features to the popular Game Manager that always comes equipped with plenty of other features for your exploited PS3. Not only is this homebrew for CFW any longer, but since v1.36 ManaGunZ is now both compatible with PS3 Custom FirmWare and also PS3HEN, also zar did not stop there as there has been tons of new additions (seen in the changelogs provided below) and various fixes/optimizations have been brought forward as well in these recent updates that have emerged from developer @Zar. Checkout all the latest details below surrounding ManaGunZ for the PS3.Continue reading
IRISMAN + webMAN MOD - Updated with 4.85 CEX SupportDeveloper @aldostools recently updated two great projects of his with 4.85 firmware (cex) support. When the releases appeared over at brewology.com they were added to the 4.85 Update/CFW thread > here < but i wanted to get something up on the mainpage for the two apps as there are staples in the PS3 library of homebrew fame. For those whom may be new to PS3 homebrew, IRISMAN is a Game Manager (aka Backup Manager) that provides many features, While multiMAN / IRISMAN & ManaGunZ are all excellent Game Manager's they are all unique from each other, while all sharing the essentials. So no choice of the three is a bad one, but all 3 are different, IRISMAN is a fork from an earlier PS3 Homebrew Manager called IRIS Manager by Estwald & D_Skywalk but aldostools has taken the foundation of that project to new levels by adding a TON of functionality,.. Which bring us to Aldostools other project of webMAN MOD which is a fork of deank's original webMAN plugin. deank made a spectacular foundation and down right great plugin, but as the scene advanced developer aldostools stepped in with other devs and formed webMAN MOD fork and since that forked spawned developer aldostools has created one hell of a plugin with tons of functionality and great features. This plugin allow offers more features then all Sony Firmware updates combined and that is even close to being a discussion. These are to great projects to explore if you have not.Continue reading
