And from Extreme-Modding.de, to quote: PS4 1.76 – Activate/Deactivate App Test – Entitlement Control Info
Over the last week, Ginsor and I have talked about a method to unlock installed PKGs on a 1.76 Retail PS4 via the Content Manger (Debug Settings). We have tested a lot of stuff but we don’t have managed to run any PKG on my 1.76 PS4 which never was connected to PSN. His 1.76 PS4 has 2 user accounts which has information from PSN in the act.dat file.
It’s not easy but we found a few things. It doesn’t work just to copy a rif (license) from one PS4 to a other one. If your PS4 never was connected to PSN, you will not have the act.dat on your hdd.
Ginsor has rif data information in this file for the ShareFactory PKG so he is able to unlock the App with a rif file from a other PS4 after installing the PKG. The rif is unique for the user account but we have 3 free license files for The Playroom, OMSK and PlayStation Vue. If we rename the .rif/.idx with free the app is unlocked on Retail consoles.
After we have enabled the DevKit Debug Settings the Targed ID is changed and rif files show up in Entitlement Control if you rename the file with fake. Only the fake .rif of these 3 licenses has the function to activate/deactivate the apps via the Content Manager.
Download: PlayStation Vue PKG – OMSK PKG – OMSK Debug PKGCode:freeIP9100-CUSA00001_00.rif for The Playroom – freeUT0016-CUSA00960_00.rif for PlayStation Vue – freeIV0001-NPXS29005_00.rif for OMSK
The Playroom is preinstalled on every 1.76 PS4, you will find the free rif in user\license on hdd and a app.rif which looks like the rif on a PS4 Disc Game.
Ginsor found out that offset 0x660 has no difference in these 3 files. He can launch PlayStation Vue because his PS4 was connected to PSN and on my PS4 the App only can be unlocked but does not run.
Cheers to @gammerfordement for sharing the news in the PSXHAX Shoutbox!
