    Developer @LigthingMods has released an update to the PlayStation 4 Homebrew Store App that is currently in the Alpha Stages of development. We have now seen several releases of this homebrew store and the functionality of delivering you a homebrew package (pkg's) works very well."Simply" select and download then boom the app installs the homebrew and is ready to use on your Homebrew Enabled PS4. So the foundation seems solid in terms of the functionality. However you must be warned the User -Interface could use a bit of work but we are sure the developer is aware of this and plans to make further improvements as we embark into the future. One of more annoying quirks you will find in the UI will be with navigation as homebrew is randomly listed and you must navigate pages of listing to find Homebrew. In this update there has been the inclusion of a search feature and in my honest opinion it can be a bit picky (if you do not know the exact name of the homebrew) also a pagejump does allow you to navigate any page on demand, but not the most ideal way of browsing the Homebrew contained in the store. A suggestion to help the browsing of pages would be to add some category listing's and even a newly released section :). Now this update there has been plenty of changes/improvements for those changes lets take a look @ligthingmods take it from here with the release details for this huge update found below, also @MasterTurkey has a video showing a bit of the update also.​

      this could be interesting. I haven't updated my offline cache in a long time, but I might try this out. I liked some of options from your other release like dumping the notification.db. I renamed all of my pkgs to their content ids. I assume that wrongly named installs would be a red flag if/when we can sign in.

      if there is a new exploit, they may not be releasing it for concerns of rampant piracy and cheating. I believe that's the reason cited by the hen developer for not adding external hdd support.

      I've only played my ps4 for about ten hours total over the 5 or so years I've owned it. it's on 5.05 too. however, my account was banned, so I have no interest in continuing to play with my account. the only reason I don't just do a system restore is because without an account you can't export saves via usb.

      also, I believe the ps4 save wizard, to transfer saves from one account to another, requires the latest firmware and possibly access to psn. I think it also needs saves that weren't made from a fake pkg'd game. if you try to export a save that's been made with a fake pkg'd game, it will show up as corrupt. it will also show up as corrupt with a legit save and a fake pkg'd game unless you 0 out the keystone of the package (must make the package modifiable by checking its box in orbis/fake package generator when initially making the package or else you can't 0 out the keystone). I didn't know that at first, so I had to redo my entire collection. now, all saves work.
