Tested on IDA 7.0-7.2 and geared towards PS4 scene devs who haven't jumped to GhidraPS4Loader / GhidraOrbisTools yet, today PlayStation 4 developer @SocraticBliss made available on Twitter a PS4 Module Loader for Userland Modules following his recent PS4 Kernel Loader updates. :love:

Download: ps4_module.py / ps4_module_loader-master.zip / GIT

More for developers/reversers, but its used to decompile/disassemble PS4 user module binaries, to get a better understanding of how the PS4 works at a higher level.

This isn't used directly to gain you a jailbreak, but can be a tool to help with that process.

Edit: Feel free to ask any more questions, I'll try to answer them as best as I can.
