Homebrew (libOrbis) for 1.76 – WIP Showcase by TheoryWrong & ZeraTron

Developer bigboss aka psxdev has opened the door for the PS4 Homebrew Community and showed a PoC of the first real Homebrew on a 1.76 Retail PS4 😎

ZeraTron finally got it to work with help by TheoryWrong and shared a video of the first useful Homebrew. This text based GUI shows the full PSID/IDPS of the console.

Method: the kernel_hooks Payload use nmount (developed by Wildcard) to mount another folder instead of the original. With libOrbis it’s possible to use this progress to load Homebrew.

    This is very cool progress in the PS4 scene and hopefully lead to nice Homebrew like a System-Temperature App or even a Super Nintendo Emulator.

    Big thanks to all involved sceners, a great beginning 🙂

    The eboot_plugin is the sample and only need an eboot.bin and sce_module folder of a backup to run via khooks from USB. Thanks to ZeraTron for this nice Homebrew, works fine.

    I have created the smallest Backup for Homebrew, it’s only 1,29 MB. Just copy your compiled eboot_plugin to the Backup.
