Hi Guys,

I did some testing recently on 7.02, on my PS4 Pro 7.02 Kernel Panics mean a reboot, an HD test and back again into the OS.

I updated to an 8TB SSD (SAMSUNG 870 QVO SATA III 2.5" SSD 8TB (MZ-77Q8T0B)), got the same number of KP due to rest mode, but with one very important factor.

Each time I got a KP I had to reinitialize the disk and start from scratch, none of the other options in safe mode would allow me to load the PS4, the only option was reload the firmware and format everything.

Anyone experiencing this issue with SSD? Is the QVO nand the problem, not being able to survive a shutdown or is this a thing with all SSD?

Really confused as to why a fast SSD with large capacity would be SOL after a KP while the mechanical one is loaded in a few minutes with all packages and config intact.

I think I am going to go with an external SSD to store the games and I will test again with a smaller 2 TB for the internal storage to see if that works fine. Otherwise I may just go exclusively with an external source.

Update:

Installed a 860 Samsung 2 tb pro as the internal drive and I tried to force a KP, I noticed the PS4 just boots, not a problem with this model / size.

So the 870 8 TB was either faulty or the PS4 cannot recover from a KP with a large drive. 2 TB seems to work, did not test with 4tb SSD.

Returned the old 870 and got another one as the external extended disk, this should allow me to install the games on there and still be able to boot in the event of a KP.

10 tb total should cover all my needs. To those wondering, this is going to stream a Hyperspin wheel collection of PS4 games in an arcade cabinet :).

@Student123 hyperspin, on PS4? Whut?

Yeah, have a full wheel with art for all the games I will be streaming, Rocketlauncher set to load Chiaki and start a stream automatically with my ps4. PS4 just sits on a 10g router ready to stream whenever I call it via hyperspin :)! Its surprisingly responsive, couldn't detect any lag! Almost feels like it is an emulator like all the others in hyperspin ;).

Did anyone ever figure this out? I just got into jailbreak on 7.55, so I bought the 8tb Samsung QVO and while at first everything seemed fine, anytime I had a kernel panic, it would check the DB, and fail and then require a full re-initialization… this totally sucks. It doesn’t make since. I put a 4tb QVO drive in, and I have no issues, it rebuilds just fine. Just wanted the larger drive in there, but oh well. Stuff it in my PC instead. Does it maybe need a higher firmware to be more stable? And since 7.55 is the highest jailbroken fw, we are screwed until a later date? Just seeing if anyone found out any more concrete thoughts. Thanks.

    And I'm still on Batman: Arkham City. Such a good game. Mr Freeze's boss fight is hard and extensive, we're currently at a point where whoever gets the next strike wins. If I miss I'll lose another 30 mins at least.

    Does anyone happen to know if the gecko code handler will always be in the same location? It would be useful if you could call into it's own subroutines in ASM codes.
    Gift
  • FAST6191 @ FAST6191:
    Are there any codes that modify the handler to do fun extras like there are for DS codes?
    Gift
  • gudenau @ gudenau:
    I don't see why you would need that, Gecko just allows you to do ASM directly instead of needing to make codes to add new code types.

    There is nothing stopping you from doing that though.

  • FAST6191 @ FAST6191:
    I was thinking more if there were (some of the DS stuff allowing I think it was different boolean masks than stock) then it would confirm that.

  • gudenau @ gudenau:
    Some of the later DS stuff was pretty impressive. I do want to figure out how some of the lower level stuff worked one of these days.
