We've seen several APK's and Apps for PlayStation 4 payloads before, and today following his PS4 Payload Sender PC client developer @valentinbreiz (Twitter) made available a simple PS4 Payload Sender of his own for Android users followed by a PS4 Payload Sender v1.1 Fatal Crash Fix alongside a PS4 Linux Loader for 5.05 work-in-progress which he states will be ready once he finishes porting the PS4 kexec 5.05 offsets. :D

Download: PS4-Payload-Sender.apk / GIT

From the PS4 Payload Sender for Android

Send payloads to your PS4 from your Android device.

Many thanks to kojo9999 for testing :D

From the PS4 Linux Loader

A simple payload that let you run Linux on your 5.05 PS4

How to build

I use*** to compile it. You also need to compile and place 'kexec.bin' into this folder. Compile kexec with 'make CFLAG='-DPS4_5_05 -DKASLR -DNO_SYMTAB'.

How to use

For now only some PS4 FAT models are supported, see the list here.

You need a FAT32 formatted USB drive plugged in on any PS4's USB port with the following files on the root directory : bzImage and initramfs.cpio.gz. You can download them here.

Then you will need to send the payload (PS4-Linux-Loader.bin) to your PS4. For that go to your PS4 web browser, go to and send the payload to your PS4 using netcat or other.. (You can also use my tool: PS4 Payload Sender).

For 4.05:

For 4.55:

For PS4 Pro:

I've made a redesigned version if anyone interested here it is. (As same apk package name need to uninstall the original one before as I am using my own signature). Will continue to update it if anyone interested. Also asking for permission to publish on the PlayStore.

Download: Ps4-payload-sender-robglez-5-15-2018-8-42-signed.apk (1.36 MB)

Please let me know if there are any issues while trying to install the apk. Will be publising a new one with my own package name. You can check my Twitter robglezDev for feedback and updates also.

@robglez If someone tests yours out with a PS4 let us know and we'll move it to a thread of its own... ideally with a changelog (or if you have a Github, etc) so that people can keep track of what's different between yours and the one from @valentinbreiz (y)

@PSXHAX Alright, will be trying on my PS4 but mine is currently on 4.73 so there isn't much development on that firmware as I know. I will be updating to 5.01 and will test the files when they are released. I will also make a changelog for the next update (with it's own package name), will be translating it in French and Spanish and a Play Store release soon. Thanks for replying I will post an update when everything is ready or a dm message if preferred.

@humamb What app did you used? What Android version? (It is caused by the original code using a onClick on the xml file I might change it if it causes more problems) it can also close if the connection fails.
