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!
You got this same Error code as well when updating to System Firmware 5.05? Don't worry. Now you can thanks to @CelesteBlue, @SpecterDev and @notzecoxao
So similar to the PS3-era - which also had several Customs Firmwares (CFW) for Consoles, with a broken Blu-ray Drive (namely "NoBD CFW" for example) - this release shows that even when you have the same problems with your PS4, you will be now able to enjoy the latest Kernel Exploit by using several Homebrew Releases, which are still getting updated by the "5.05 Kernel Exploit" News Coverage when you click on the "Releases for 5.05" tab. Of course it is recommended to stay then on Firmware 5.05 not only because this Version got all the latest support for new Releases, it will be also necessary to keep staying there since your Blu-ray Drive will be still broken and a new Kernel Exploit for newer System Firmwares will give you the guarantee that your PS4 will still keep running on that newer Firmware even with a broken Blu-ray Drive.

Has another emulation project that many will be excited for as this shapes up, especially after seeing the great progress of d x64's n64 emulation so far to this point. Now ReDream (A Sega Dreamcast Emulator) is being ported to the PS Vita as a libretro core running on RetroArch (Vita), so far its early progress, However, it looks like potential could be untapped from a developer who has some experience with the platform and emulation porting.. So far its rendering of graphics are in the early stages, so stay tuned for more progress reports from the developer..

ManaGunZ v1.38 - 4.86 CFW (CEX) / HEN Support + Picture Viewer + several fixes from developer ZarFollowing the previous update of ManaGunz, homebrew developer and creator @Zar of the project has updated the popular ps3 homebrew to version 1.38, this update provides full 4.86 support (CFW CEX + HEN). Also in this update an added feature for viewing pictures (PictureViewer) in various formats that include DDS / GTF / BMP / WEBP / TIFF / GIM / TGA and other's as well. This update also provides several fixes; now in the file manager within ManaGunZ the scroll bar is now visible, also a fix to a language bug has been provided. See all the changes in this latest update in a popular AIO homebrew manager. multiMAN and IRISMAN are great choices as well for the PS3 but ManaGunZ is a popular choice as well. All 3 apps give a very diiferent approach and unique experience and also exclusive features.
Developer @Zar still have plans for the project and some features in development did not make the cut in this version but could seen possiably in a future update as the developer states with this release here in the psx-place forums that " The features I was working on, like dump BR, are disabled because I didn't finish yet.". So that is something that hopefully we see from this hobbyist developer when time allows. Until then checkout what the developer has brought us in v1.38 below in the included changelogContinue reading
Developer @TheoryWrong talks about "OrbisSWU" - An interesting approach for Downgrading your PS4 ???Remember back in the old days when instead of installing an Kernel/Web-Exploit like nowadays, you asked "how I can install an Custom Firmware (CFW)" or something like "how I can Downgrade my Console"? Of course, todays attempts aren't that bad since you get a similar functionality in terms of running Homebrew for instance, but not quite for 100% compared to the old days. Especially not when we talk about the possibilities of modifying a PlayStation 3 compared to the PlayStation 4 today. In fact, there was a time where everyone wanted to "Downgrade" his/her PS3 from an higher System Firmware (OFW) to bring the functionality of Homebrew back to their PS3. Or can you remember when your Blu-ray Drive wasn't working anymore due to its age or because of an failed Downgrade process so everytime when you wanted to install a newer, higher CFW, it failed with displaying an error message and you had to install those "noBD" CFWs? While the latter one was already achieved for older Firmwares below <4.75 in the past, it will be still interesting to achieve both a Downgrading possibility and a "noBD" support for higher Firmwares on a PS4 as well. The good thing is, well-known Developer @TheoryWrong asked the same question to himself. And it gets even better; he is ready to show his progress so far So lets have a look at it. Continue reading
