Previously we've seen guides on How to Obtain Your PS4 SFlash alongside some example file dumps, and today developer @zecoxao shared on Twitter SFlash0Unpack which is a script to unpack sflash0 files from PS4 flash dumps for PlayStation 4 scene devs to examine followed by a PS4 SFlash0 Tool by SocraticBliss.

In related news, pearlxcore (Twitter) also made available a PS4 Dump Extractor utilized to extract PlayStation 4 dumps including sflash0 files. :tup:

Below is main.c from Github followed by the makefile, with a Python version of the PS4 Sflash0 Pack Tool from @SocraticBliss (Twitter) on Github for those interested and also a extractor.pl Perl version from BwE! :ninja:

Hey. My program already does this, albeit with improper file names. I guess I can do it differently if this is indeed the proper file structure?

Secondly you're extracting files without taking into account the fact their file sizes aren't always going to be the same? At least that's how I read the code.... This would result in corrupt files being interpreted as complete and valid.
