Earlier this week we saw a PS4 homebrew game port of Roll A Ball / Roll The Ball PKG, and today PlayStation 4 developer @LightningMods returns with a PS4 4.55 Homebrew W.I.P. (work in progress) package via Twitter for other developers to examine and eventually use as a template to build upon when he releases the requested source code. ;)

Download: HW1633-NPXX51898_00-0000000000000000-A0100-V0100.rar (408 MB)

Some screenshots are below, and to quote from his Tweet embedded below: Hello im releasing "4.55 Homebrew W.I.P" Not fully done its a W.I.P but here it is.

Spoiler

:stop: Also below is a PS4 System RW payload for 4.55 ONLY in the form of FTP+RW.bin, however, it comes with a WARNING to use CAUTION if you decide to give the unsandboxed FTP access and re-mount ALL system partitions as RW payload a try.

:alert: It can permanently brick your PS4 so don't use it if you don't know what you're doing and aren't willing to take the risk! :alert:

Download: PS4-System-RW-master.zip / GIT

And from the README.md file for those interested: PS4-System-RW

This Payload gives you Unsandboxed FTP Access and re-mount ALL System Partitions as RW (USE CAUTION) on FW 4.55 ONLY!

Release Features

1. FTP Access (root)
2. Read and Write to the following partitions
  • /system_ex
  • /system_tmp
  • /preinst
  • /preinst2
  • /dev (sometimes works)
  • Some others i might have forgot
3. Optimized for use with a HEN (No Freezing!)

Cheers to 0XD4RK for the heads-up on the news! :beer:
