    Easy on the ps3, seems to be an issue on the ps4...

    I tried EXFAT and FAT32. PKG in root of HDD. Plugged in to left and right front USB ports and I keep getting "no package found message."

    Each time, I launch the exploit by going to the specter. via web browser. Then debug and package installer.

    Can anyone help with this please?

    FW is 4.05, first time on a ps4 trying to install PKG files.

    If its on the external hdd then its a no go, The PS4 system must have system software version 4.50 or later.

    Lol, I completely forgot what firmware version USB support came in. Now, I just formatted my ps4 so going through the setup... I thought it was strange. my fault, I completely forgot. - how do we install them on 4.05?

    Are we able to ftp and place in IE packages folder on the internal HDD like PS3 days. This will aid in bypassing the 4gb limit. Most will be over 4gb

    Lotta bad info here. a jailbroken ps4 can install pkg from both fat32 and exfat usb as long as pkg on root of drive and user has used al azif local host to load specter exploit and then ps4hen integrated payload. I do so in several of the videos on my channel
