Following yesterday's MTX Key Video comes another lackluster demonstration of the MTX Key that supports PlayStation 4 Slim and PS4 Pro on PS4 Firmware 4.72, this time from Firstsing China's YouTube Channel which also offers a plethora of (you guessed it folks) FIDGET SPINNERS!!! :ROFLMAO:

If you've ever wondered how many different ways a Fidget Spinner can be knocked off, check out some of their footage HERE, HERE and HERE. :LOL:

The PS4 MTX Key English Installation / Instruction Manual can be found below via WestinGames, and is essentially the same as the original but with English pictures.

:stop: For those who missed it, the MTX Key clones are based off @freeplex (Twitter) of's device pictured HERE, and as a result of being betrayed by the Chinese cloners he's since contacted Sony to help them patch the security holes... so it would probably be wise not to jump on the PS4 ModChip bandwagon just yet. ;)

After the above steps are completed, connected to the mobile hard disk, you should be able to play the game directly. So that you and your friends can share each other’s games freely. Rumor said that the PS4 can’t get access of the Internet after hacking, the truth is the PS4 MTX KEY chips has been removed.

Internet access method:

After the above steps finished, select the new user here.

And then log in your own PSN account, similarly, you can use this way to share games with your friends. For example, Account A have Game A, account B have Game B, (you can even have account C and D, you only need to log in your own account but you can share the account A,B.C and D’s games.)

The advantages about using this way to share games with your friend is it won’t affects the Internet and if the game gets locked, it will only take less a minute to unlocked it, easy operate, but the only premise is each machine needs to have a PS4 MTX KEY chip.


Nowadays the market has a lot claimed “hacked “PS4 with a not cracked IC in it. This makes the clients can’t download the games they liked, can’t get Internet connection. The perfect way to solve this problem is each console MUST paired with its own PS4 MTX KEY chip, (NO PS4 MTX KEY chip, NO work).

You can download game freely and share accounts to unlock games with your friends, but at the same time the account owner can get back his/her account by using the account security system (please keep in mind about your personal information and your password, it will be using when you need to revive your account), therefore, let’s be each other’s good friend and share games for a better game experience.

This instruction is NOT for commercial use, only for sharing.

:idea: Finally, if you haven't seen it @sanyok111777 left a general synopsis of this MTX Key method HERE that's definitely worth a peek!

I’ll just leave this here before any more people get ripped off by the Chinese folks.

You indeed only need a single chip (yeah just 1 of those units is enough to backup on multiple cons).

It works as a flasher/programmer which backs up the activation info and then mirrors it back into your ps4’s nor. Since, apparently the syscon verification occurs on power cycle, in-circuit flashing does the trick just fine. After this stage has been completed you’re all good to go — you can now desolder the chip and proceed wiring it up to the next victim-> repeat this as many times as you want until it inevitably gets patched.

Apart from making the Chinese sellers rich, the only reason why you would want to get a few of those ‘modchips’ is convenience. If you fudge something up i.e. go-online(—yeah no-online play on this pos)-> forget about it or all your shared games get locked. Anyway, in this case, provided you’ve soldered a chip to each cloned ps4 and the trick still hasn’t been patched (highly unlikely), you simply won’t have to take your consoles apart again to re-solder the chip. Just follow the tutorial and use those 2 buttons —> bingo, no locks again.

Again, the Chinese have no idea what they are talking about they just want to push more units. You can try blocking certain addresses in your router and risk playing online, but just remember Sony ain’t fools. So unless you’re fully aware of what you are doing before you even attempt to do something to your ps4 and invest your hard earned cash into this lame backups technique, consider this:

--Sony have patched several prev. iterations of this trick, in fact this chip is most likely DOA now that the info has been leaked and the steps are out in the wild.
--If you (de)activate too many times or multiple people show up online with the same master profile, this activity will be logged and it will look suspicious. Potentially, both your main psn profile will most likely get flagged and all ps4’s ever associated with it will potentially get banned either.
--In many places backups is also illegal, you can even face legal problems. (My dad, for example, got a 1 year suspended sentence for running a cardsharing server.)

The Chinese, of course, will try their best to keep you in the dark about all this, they don’t want you to know you just need 1 chip for all your consoles. And they want you all hyped up about it and make you believe this trick is a big deal to make more money. It’s just pure marketing talk, while in reality this chip may turn out to be a useless piece of junk before it even arrives at your doorstep.

TL;DR Buy 1 chip and use brain.
It seems you guys are as fool as that still don't know nothing about how this method works
