After the first announcement for a Kernel Exploit incoming for System Firmware 5.05, Developer @SpecterDev "has been true to one's word" by releasing the announced Kernel Exploit (PS4 Hack) for System Firmware 5.05 (& 5.07). This is some Great News not because of a newer System Firmware is now exploitable, but it could be a giant stride towards great evolution for getting more and more Homebrew Applications available - as already previewed before. Those mentioned "Tools" weren't fully released yet by the time of this writing but a full release should be available in the near future. This Release however also includes several Payloads and other useful Patches, as you can check them down below.

PS4 5.05 / 5.07 Kernel ExploitSummary
- In this project you will find a full implementation of the second "bpf" kernel exploit for the PlayStation 4 on 5.05. It will allow you to run arbitrary code as kernel, to allow jailbreaking and kernel-level modifications to the system. This exploit also contains autolaunching code for Mira and Vortex's HEN payload. Subsequent loads will launch the usual payload launcher. This bug was discovered by qwertyoruiopz, and can be found hosted on his website here.
- The following patches are made by default in the kernel ROP chain:Payloads included
- Disable kernel write protection
- Allow RWX (read-write-execute) memory mapping
- Syscall instruction allowed anywhere
- Dynamic Resolving (sys_dynlib_dlsym) allowed from any process
- Custom system call #11 (kexec()) to execute arbitrary code in kernel mode
- Allow unprivileged users to call setuid(0) successfully. Works as a status check, doubles as a privilege escalation.
- Vortex's HEN (Homebrew Enabler)
Note: The page will crash on successful kernel exploitation, this is normal

PS4 Linux Loader Payload (by valentinbreiz)
- Updated support for the newest System Firmware 5.05 Kernel Exploit that let you run Linux on your PS4.
reactPSPLUS Payload (by Zer0xFF)
- Have a PS Plus Subscription? but can't access your game collection being on a lower firmware and games have reach its expiration for signing into PSN for re-activation, Well, hopefully with this payload it will help you play those games once again. May need a few updates to make all games play as some reports did surface but to early to tell if user error or a issue with the tool that an update will fix.

- Transparent Content Icons / Title Names changed / Location changed for fPKGs / Removed some Icons / Custom User Avatar / Custom Background Music
PS2 Classic GUI (Tool) (by TheDarkProgrammer)

PS4 Exploit Host (by Al-Azif)
- A great solution for hosting the exploit on your own LAN connection, no need to rely on a 3rd party site hosting the exploit this handy utility has alot of great features . UPDATE @eXtreme has created a custom playground based on this release (hosting on his website and adding new visuals (and all payloads from Al-Azif's collection) take a look >>> LINK to PS4Brew 5.05 Playground
PS4 Trainer By TylerM
- Here is a trainer for PS4 that I have been working on and it is not 100% just like PS4 modding isn't. I will NOT be adding GTA or COD to this tool. I hope everyone likes it and finds it helpful.YOU MUST ENABLE MIRA+HEN FIRST TO INJECT THE PAYLOAD It is possible these cheats work for different CUSA's. Just have to try and see. If you make a working .cht file. (Pointers preferred) I will add them. I just need you to provide CUSA and game version

It is designed to be adaptable to new firmwares and entry points and new reverse engineered functions can be integrated into the SDK, by adding headers, function signatures and their names to the list of function stubs. Currently, running user and kernel code on firmwares ~5.05 is supported"

ref00d (plugin) Released - Run Games / Apps that require a higher FW from your ownFollowing the big news from Team Molecule several weeks ago and effectively opening the system wide open, it was only a matter of time before we would start to see other developer's start putting the finding to use and we have seen the FAPS Team (team members listed below) have recently released a new (taiHEN) plugin called ref00d, this plugin is a big deal, as it will allows users/devs to use content that would otherwise require a higher firmware to be played/executed on a lower firmware for your exploited PS Vita or PlayStation TV. Typically not an easy task to reach but thanks to Team Molecule's research and the FAPS Team we now have a ready to use simple plugin solution to remove those firmware restrictions, see additional details about this plugin release in the release notes provided below by the development team.
[Update x2] RetroArch (PS2) Preview (includes 2 cores) - Introducing New Nigthly PS2 ReleasesUpdate (2x): Reports are coming in this PS2 Homebrew is also working on PS3 HAN & PS4 (5.05).
With progress making headway on the upcoming PS4 port of RetroArch from a group of developer's, Another developer (fjtrujy) started progress on a PlayStation 2 (PS2) port several months back (view previous progress) and now has a port that progressed enough for a public soft release, Now available in the new RetroArch PS2 Nighties for anyone interested in downloading and trying out the multi-system emulator on your homebrew capable PS2 hardware. @fjtrujy warns that many things need implemented yet and many pending issue remain and only these early release contains two cores currently 2048 and QuickNES. Which is likely to grow and a good gauge to base what is expected for the PS2 port, Would be to view the PSP as that should be a good baseline of what to expect and the PS2 may be able to handy more then the PSP likely.Continue reading
2018 - Year in Review: "Kernel Exploits, New Cryptographic Failures and a (tiny) new Console" [Poll]2018 is over and it was a very interesting Year, not only for you as a Gamer, but also for PSX-Place. We saw many Releases across all platforms, like several Kernel- and Web Exploits for the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation Vita caught a strong year as well, especially back in December, but also the PS3 was still very popular with many updated Homebrew Releases for System Firmware 4.82 for instance. We also saw some newcomers like the PlayStation Classic, where everyone knows how bad Sony designed it and why we (the Homebrew-Community) has to fix it. But in case you missed something, this Article will give you an overview what happend so far in 2018 for the whole PlayStation-family. And to round things up, there is a small Poll you can find down below where you can vote for your favourite Console of last year. Every Vote is welcome.
But what will 2019 bring to you? It's still early to say but maybe Sony will satisfy the all Gamer who asks for a "PS5". But the PS4 is still a powerful machine don't you think? Maybe we will see a new Kernel Exploit for a higher System Firmware with the hope that it will lead into a proper Homebrew Community. But however the end result will be, we hope that you will stay faithful to our Community, so you won't miss any action in 2019. And speaking of that, we wish everyone a Happy New Year 2019 and may your dreams/wishes come true.Continue reading
