Following his PS4 HEN 2.1.4 Port, PlayStation 4 homebrew developer @TheDarkprograme made available via Twitter a work-in-progress (WIP) PS4 Tools Homebrew Showcase FPKG for PS4 jailbroken console owners or those who plan to locate one soon to check out. 😃

Download: PS4_Tools_WIP.pkg / GIT / Trello

From the HB_WIP Page, to quote: PS4 Tools Homebrew WIP Showcase

After the poll on twitter where everyone wanted to see what I was making here it is

It features:
  • Save data mounting and copying to usb. (A huge shout out to ChendoChap for this)
  • Reading system info (IDPS, PSID, Username, UserID)
  • Reading of PKG files directory from the console (This is all done using PS4_Tools).
Not included in this release:
  • Mounting of PFS files.
  • The File explorer is not included
  • Trophy Unlocker
How To use :
  • Run my Hen 2.1.4 with save mount patches it can be found here (if you intend to mount saves you need this)
  • Run the homebrew
  • When copying save data to usb make sure you have a directory called SaveData on the root of your usb
Have fun.
:arrow: Also making rounds in the PlayStation 4 scene on Twitter today is a WIP repository via @zecoxao for PS4 Syscon (PS4 Syscon System Controller) research and development:

could it be possible, that copy save to usb only works with original PKG ??
because I tried it , and for me only original PKG is working - not with Fake PKG...

@mukasange - its pointless to change your fan speed on any game console. I've had this discussion many times before. If your system is overheating its because there is a PROBLEM!

Running a fan faster does NOT solve or fix the problem. If your system begins to overheat its likely that the inside and or outside is dirty, running a fan faster will not clean it. Actually running it faster will suck in more dirt and dust compounding the problem.

When thermal paste begins to wear, your system will get hotter causing the fan to run faster to cool off, but this does not make thermal paste regenerate, it still must be changed. Running the fan faster does not stop thermal paste from "breaking down" at best it might prolong it some but nobody on earth can tell you for how long and it will still fail.

In either one (or both) of the cases above, a faster fan speed is a band-aid, its not a solution. Your system will still experience failure and possible permanent damage if either one of those things are not addressed.

There could be other reasons why it would run faster, like ps3 webman mod who for some unknown reason has dynamic fan control turned on by default or it could be that the chip/s just don't deal with heat as good as they did when they were new and require more cooling, but the system will automatically do that.

Running it faster on purpose may add more time to your system's life, but again, nobody can tell you how long that is... a day? a week? a year... five years? Not to mention that a TON of other things can go wrong with your system that have absolutely nothing to with cooling.

@Zoilus i already mention to prevent not to cure the overheating system, unfortunately on ps4 if we use fan speed mod we can't adjust the fan speed like in freestyle dash on xbox360 or ps3 webman mod, it already set it to the max and make annoying sound

another one to prevent the system from overheating is to change it's thermal paste which is true i've already done it every 2 years and my xbox360 and ps3 slim on its perfect condition up to this day


@mukasange what thermal paste do you recommend for the ps4? In September it's 2 years since i bought my ps4 slim. I've played quite a lot on it.

Should I consider changing the thermal paste soon, and do you have any good tutorials on how to do it?

I've not opened my console yet, so I'm a bit reluctant when it comes to disassembling it. Thanks!
