zecoxao shared a PS4 tutorial on how to bypass Sony PFS (PlayStation File System) protection entirely with other devs... check it out below!
To quote: How to "bypass" pfs protection entirely
- PS4 on 1.76
- Disc game or PSN game activated on the console
- TITLE ID of the Game in question
- http://www.extreme-modding.de/PS4/1.76/Playground/index.html (the FTP Server + Debug Settings part)
- FTP client (filezilla or something like that)
- Brains you can use
1- Go to http://www.extreme-modding.de/PS4/1.76/Playground/index.html and select the FTP Server (big Silver Star)
2- Enable it and minimize the browser
3- Start the game you want to copy/modify pfs content
4- Keep the game running (i believe this is the issue people are having)
5- Start your favourite ftp client
6- Navigate to:
where [TITLE-ID] is the id of the game you're running.Code:/mnt/sandbox/pfsmnt/[TITLE-ID]-app0
7- From there you can dump and modify files at will
I originally wondered if there was a way to do pfs bypass with the app.db so i asked around to see what would people say. Credits to flatz for the original idea.
contains the entire file listing (and also the files) in a big .dat file. You can also use it but you'll need an extractor later.Code:/mnt/sandbox/pfsmnt/[TITLE-ID]-app0-nest
Now the eboot.bin protection is left to "crack". let's see how this plays out.
