Proceeding the PS4 Remote Play Enabler PS4REN v2.0 update and the PS4 Remote Play Without PSN Access PS4REN Guide, this weekend Sinofevil1997 shared a backup archive.dat dump via @zecoxao on Twitter allowing those not already activated to 'hacktivate' their PlayStation 4 console and use features including PS4 Remote Play on 6.72 without PS4REN alongside copying saves without requiring Charlyzards's PS4OfflineAccountActivator (PS4 Offline Account Activator GUI) tool. :fire:

Download: BACKUP.zip (258.76 MB - contains archive.dat)

A brief summary from the Tweets embedded below:
  • so ever since I asked for a ps4 backup, four people volunteered, I've talked with 3 over DM, two offered a backup, but since I only need one backup, the one that is going (and doesn't have important account info from user) is from Sinofevil1997

  • with this backup, users that are not activated can now "hacktivate" their console and use features such as remote play without the need for HEN and also copying saves without the need of charlyzards tool.

  • for those wondering about what to do with the archive.dat shared yesterday by Sinofevil1997, it needs to be in a set of folders like so: PS4/EXPORT/BACKUP/(DATEOFBACKUPHERE)/archive.dat. Then you use backup and restore utility on retail ps4 and select the restore option

  • as a heads up you'll lose ALL data after the restore, so make sure you back it up first, using either ftp, backup and restore utility, or a raw hdd clone

Ps4 remote play app for android requires you to update your ps4 to 7+ firmware version or it wouldn't work. I honestly hope devs will come up with a work around.

Does anyone use remote play on Android with ps4 FW 6.72? Can you share how you got it to work?

Nice!!!!! So what, this is just a way easier method of what we already did a month ago hacktivating? And is this that easy it requires no instructions?

Yep, try Chiaki, but set correctly video bitrate, without it you could see video artifact on screen. 720p max 4000, and 1080p max 8000.
I used it and it works perfect on Linux

@Elem3ntal Let's see what you have to take and create a PS4 folder in capital letters and inside what that looks at the Sony house that ally explains it, but with that it will erase all the hard disk including games

So when will you guys make Remote play full functional? I mean, we can only use it on local network. Whats the point of that? We should be able to connect to our jailbroken ps4 from outside home too. Now that would be really funny
