Since the release of MakePFS and his PS4 FTP IP Set, PlayStation 4 developer @dbaaz put together his first PS4-PFSPKG-DUMP.bin payload called PS4 PFSPKG Dump that dumps pfs_image and app.pkg to usb0 which can be handy for PS4 4.05 game rippers to dump large files to their external hard drive :D

Download: PS4-PFSPKG-DUMP.bin / GIT

To quote from the README.md: PS4-PFSPKG-DUMP - Dump pfs_image and app.pkg to usb0

How to:
  1. Open the .bin file using a hexeditor and change CUSAXXXXX to the game id of your game.
  2. Open web browser, go to a exploit host page, and minimise the browser using the PS4 home button.
  3. Start the game you wish to dump. Wait until you reach the menus.
  4. Connect your external HDD to your USB0 port (leftmost usb port). Make sure you have at least 100GB free space.
  5. Wait until your PS4 recognizes your HDD. Then, send the payload
PS4-PFSPKG-DUMP v1.1 Changelog:
  • Increased buffer size
  • Use hexedit to change game id
:fire: In other PlayStation 4 hacking news making rounds on Twitter today, developer @CelesteBlue announced that he's working on a PS4 system update blocker without DNS that will be included in PS4-HEN-VTX coming soon for 1.76, 4.05 or any firmware that has a kernel exploit. :notworthy:

This means blocking PS4 updates via Sony URLs to prevent them from downloading so you don't have to go through removing them (if they were downloaded but haven't been installed yet) will be simplified so that even if the .PUP is downloaded, it can't install. :sneaky:

Thanks to @prreis and @TheOneAngel for the heads-up in the PSXHAX Shoutbox earlier today! :beer::beer:

can anyone write a complete guide on the pkg kitchen of vortex and on the fake pkg generator? I followed the guide to the letter but the game got stuck at the start.

You'll have to check your USB led light. If its blinking, it means that the files are still being copied.

Alternatively, you can go to /mnt/usb0 via ftp and check the filesize there :bananaman13:

Tried both Specter's and IDC's exploit, both NTFS and exFAT and neither dump anything. Awesome idea if it would just work for me.

According to source code, server's debug strings where sent to these ip/Ports:
Code:
server.sin_addr.s_addr = IP(192, 168, 1, 41);
server.sin_port = sceNetHtons(9023);
May you need to hex edit values and try to listen...

Messages are:
Code:
debug(sock,"Copying PFS FILE");
debug(sock,"Copying pkg FILE");
debug(sock,"All done");
Hope it helps.

Tonight i will give it a try with some EUR (italian) PS4 games
