PS4 4.05 Kernel Exploit Released!

I’m a few days late to see this (more like a week) – but the good news is a PS4 Kernel exploit has been released by SpectreDev.

This isn’t a walk in the park for n00bs, but is fairly easy for techie folks. Note – There is NO payload (yet) for running Homebrew or Backup ISO’s…this will come in due time.

If you are looking for PS4 4.05 Firmware (you have to be on 4.05 at the time of writing this article), you can find it here:

PS4 Firmware 4.05 PUP (297 MB)
MD5 Checksum (PS4UPDATE_SYSTEM.PUP) = 203c76c97f7be5b881dd0c77c8edf385

Read more about the original exploit info from PSXHAX here:

It’s only a matter of time before PS4 will be wide-open like PS3 – w000t!

PS3 Hack Updates – 4.81.2 Rebug, multiMAN, and More!

The PS3 Scene has been thriving and we have some great new releases out lately! Here are the major releases:

Rebug 4.81.2 REX/D-REX CFW

We have a new 4.81.2 Rebug REX/D-REX out (the BEST PS3 CFW)! This comes with a few of the usual updates (Cobra 7.5, webMAN mod 1.45.09, Rebug Toolbox 2.02.12), and a few new patches (LV2) and minor features. However, the coolest is Target Manager and CCAPI should be working great with the latest D-REX. You can grab it from their site, and see a full list of changes:

Rebug 4.81.2

multiMAN 4.81.02 (DEX Support!)

multiMAN has also now caught up to 4.81 with DEX support !!! There are other cool backup managers out there, but this one is the best. Deank has been in the PS3 scene for many years and has been faithfully updating this great piece of homebrew software. Grab it from brewology:

multiMAN 4.81.02

PSN-Patch 2017.01/A & SEN Enabler 6.0.4

We also have some updates with PSN Spoofers if you don’t want to update to the latest firmware (or clear your history to go online and what not). SEN Enabler gets updated, and PSN Patch is back after a long period of no updates. Grab both from PSX-Place here:

PSN-Patch 2017.01A
SEN Enabler 6.0.4

If you’ve been waiting to upgrade because of compatibility – Now is the time.

Soon we will hopefully have the public PS4 hack released, and we can start seeing this awesome development continue with a more powerful console!

Using Alexa with Kodi – Chrome Launcher with FireTV Fix

I have been working on getting Amazon’s Echo (Alexa) working with my Kodi home theatre. It’s been a very fun project so far using this cool plugin with Kodi and Alexa by rsummer816:

https://github.com/rsummers618/HTPC_Alexa_Skill

It takes some work to get it setup with Amazon’s Developer stuff, but it’s worth it (when it works right…it’s a Beta and going under changes per the dev right now). It will be super awesome when it works all the time, but even the current stability is pretty impressive to folks when it works.

Biggest issue folks run into is “Server can’t communicate with Kodi” or similar error. That’s usually your AUTH key being wrong so make sure (triple check) you entered it in ALL CAPS and 100% accurately like it appears in the Alex App on your phone. Once you have the Alex Service Plugin installed on Kodi, and you have your key entered – RESTART KODI.

In Kodi 16 (Using latest KodiMaster v3 Build) I just searched for Chrome Launcher in my addon repos and installed it. You may have to find the repo to install this if you don’t already have it in your repo sources (Google it!). I left the Chrome Launcher configuration for “Chrome install location” to default (tried to browse to find Chrome but I failed…so the default worked magically after restarting Kodi…lots of trial and error initially for me here!).

The key is to install the GooglePlay version of Netflix and Chrome (Pandora too maybe but I’m still testing that). FireTV (and FireStick should be the same) currently uses an Android version based on Lollipop 5.x…So, I found the compatible ARM Android APK’s to install via sideload. You can sideload apps in several ways, but I recommend adbFire (I use my Mac for this stuff vs Windows).

After sideloading these applications, make sure you RESTART Kodi again (or the whole FireTV/stick if you run in to issues).

If all works right, you’ll see Chrome launch the Netflix link and you’ll have to log in (typing in info was glitchy but keep trying…it works! Check the box to keep you logged in). If you don’t have the GooglePlay version of Netflix installed, it will tell you that you need to install the mobile Netflix App. If you have that installed already, you’ll have to now log in to your account IN the Netflix App (the Amazon Netflix app should be fine still, but the Alexa stuff will use this version).

The tricky part is getting Alexa service to work right. I’ve been creating entries in the utterances for each move/tv show that I’ve added to my library.

Examples:

Tv Shows:
PlayTVIntent play {Rick and Morty|MediaName}
PlayTVIntent play {Rick and Morty|MediaName} Season {SeasonNum}
PlayTVIntent play {Rick and Morty|MediaName} Season {SeasonNum} Episode {EpisodeNum}

Movies:
PlayTVIntent play {Avatar|MediaName}
PlayTVIntent play {Bladerunner|MediaName}
PlayTVIntent play the movie {Avatar|MediaName}
PlayTVIntent play the movie {Bladerunner|MediaName}

KODI TIP: Any app that lets you “Add to Library” (i.e. Specto – Fork and others), will work with this Alexa “local library” function 🙂

If you don’t already have an Amazon Echo/Dot, or FireTV/Fire Stick…please consider purchasing one from these links (It helps support this site and does not cost you anything additional!)

Vitamin for PS Vita released

The gates have opened!!!

Long story short:

Team Freek = TheFloW, Major_Tom, and Mr. Gas.
Some asshat leaked their Vitamin preview and started the scene drama…Major_Tom and Mr.Gas said they are out sadly 🙁However, TheFloW remains with SWEET updates from the official 1.0 release. There are dump compatibility issues with MANY games…1.1 is out which improves the dumping but not really the compatibility. 1.2 is coming out soon (today maybe), and will have MUCH better compatibility.

Vitamin Download:

https://bitbucket.org/TheOfficialFloW/vitamin/downloads

Keep an eye on Reddit’s /r/VitaPiracy and TheFloW’s twitter to get the latest updates…on what is now the most exciting scene activity that we’ve seen in a LONG time.

For those who say this is bad – I don’t think so, because Vita is officially declared dead by Sony. No longer supported ONE month after I purchased mine…so…I think this is a classic console now, and the era for it’s roms is now. No more AAA titles are planned for it, and lemme tell you … From the selection of games out there – It’s clear why the console didn’t make it too far:

  1. No GOOD hacks for it for long time. Previous Rejuvination hack was limited in accessibility. PSP emulator hacks on PSVita are cool…but not native Vita hacks.
  2. LAME set of games for it, unless you love JRPG’s…then it’s the best console in the world for you ;p I bought mine just to play Uncharted (seriously..)

Anyways – Have Phun 🙂

PS Vita 3.60 Root

Finally!

PS Vita 3.60 firmware is hacked.

You can’t run iso’s and other ‘piracy related’ things (yet), but you can run homebrew and other root required (native) PS Vita apps.

More to come in the near future as this opens the floodgates for developers to make whatever they want.

You can find out more info (and install the exploit) from here:

http://henkaku.xyz/

And…the local server was recently released, but only for Windows folks:

https://github.com/meetpatty/HENkaku-webserver

UPDATE: Offline Installer VPK available for Henkaku:

https://github.com/henkaku/offline-installer/releases/download/1.0/offlineInstaller.vpk
(Tested and verified this is working for my Vita. Be exploited already from Henkaku website, then install the offline installer.)

Great News for the PS Vita Scene!
