ps4xplorer, homebrew store, maybe orbis ftp unless you want to force read and write over all partitions in filezilla or something, apollo (never tried it on ps3 or 4 though). there's not a whole lot of homebrew really, at least compared with the ps3.
What are your thoughts on the retroarch builds on ps4? I tooled around with installing them a few weeks ago on my cousins console but wasn't incredibly impressed compared to the ps3's retroarch builds.

not sure. they're unofficial builds. there's an official build coming according to retroarch.com, but it hasn't been released. I haven't even tried retroarch on the ps4. it's pretty good on the series x except some cores have issues with certain games like the ps2 and gamecube cores primarily. I was able to run sunshine perfectly on the series x, but windwaker, the music would skip every now and then, but the game seemed to run fine. that was an official build too. from what I understand, no work is being done on gamecube, at least with the series x but it may be with all systems that can handle it. and, ps2 stuff is still in alpha (not sure if the ps4 can handle it or not).

not really tutorials. I know retroarch is on the homebrew store, don't know about the rest, but you need to be online to download dependencies for the homebrew store.

Gotcha. Yea i'm probably going to hold out for that official build and see how things progress. I got things running pretty butter on all my ps3's and most of my emulation needs are covered by that already. One's that aren't I have a decent PC with a solid retroarch build on it for things like n64, saturn, etc.

An error has occurred.

If it's the homebrew browser you're trying to install, you'll need a network connection setup when booting it so it can update. Not sure if that's the problem here or if it's not the right file or something.

that's correct. I think you always need a network connection when using that app or it will give a cdn error upon boot or something. I'm friends with the developer, lightning mods. I'm in his discord channel along with al azif, bucanero, zecoxao, etc. I think I asked him one time regarding the esp, because the person couldn't get online.

I've got a network connection set-up, and I've changed DNS to block SNY as described By Modded Warfares YouTube.

I downloaded the file from pkg-zone where it said to "Download store app here"

- PS4 Temperature
- Homebrew Store
- PS4 Player
- PS4 Xplorer
- Apollo Save Tool
- Consolepedia 3D
- Retro Arch

I'd also recommend Sony's Media Player if you can get it to play music in the background. It always stops with me when I switch to the dashboard.
