Earlier this year we got a first look at PlayStation 4 Virtualization by @AlexAltea, and recently he shared on Twitter an experiments in PS4 emulation video from his YouTube Channel demonstrating the Orbital PS4 emulator currently in development. :geek:

Download: orbital-master.zip / GIT

He also tweeted he'll be present at this year's 35C3 event stating the following, to quote: "Flying to #35C3. I'll be around the emulation assembly, otherwise reachable @ 8180 (GSM): mostly CTFing, having tschunks and working on Orbital, my LLE PS4 emulator (sneak peek below). Happy holidays!"

And from the video's description: Experiments in PS4 emulation. Current status:
  • All drivers initialize correctly.
  • VFS is successfully loaded.
  • First userland application, /mini-syscore.elf, is decrypted and launched successfully.
  • Shortly after /SceSysAvControl.elf is launched which successfully handles system events.
  • Simultaneously, mini-syscore detects an issue with the HDD, which is to be expected during first-time boots, and launches /safemode.elf.
  • The system enters Safe Mode successfully, but gets frozen while rendering the safe mode menu.

Orbital #2: Graphical Output

Experiments in PS4 emulation. Current status: After last update, we have reimplemented large parts of the PS4 GPU graphics pipeline using Vulkan and recompiling AMD GCN bytecode into SPIR-V. This finally allows us to "see" the Safe Mode menu, booted from a PS4 5.xx kernel.

At the moment, we receive a CE-343* issue which indicates a PS4 HDD failure. This error is to be expected since we have booted the PS4 kernel without a valid HDD image.

In the future Safe Mode menu will have an important role when booting Orbital for the first role. The procedure to make the emulator work will be similar to the replacement of the HDD in an actual PS4 console.

If default says this is epic, then I guess it's a really good news / development ... I don't understand a word of this Orbital topic :D :coffee:

Id love some information on what kinds of issues outputs different blod flashes. I wonder if this can also be emulated. There are so many hidden beeps that are the results of damaged or missing hardware, I would know, I'm butchering ps4s all the time!
