    What I thought the real reason they haven't made it available was because they used it as an incentive for you to buy Xperia phones, but Sony Mobile has been doing poorer each year. Now that they've made an official iPhone app it appears they've given up on that idea and Android is probably soon to come as the post suggests.

    On some another note maybe this will finally push the developer of ControllersforAll to fix his tweak to make DS4 working on jailbroken iOS 11+. Or maybe someone else will do it. I think it has had a cash bounty for over a year now on reddit.

    iirc, the button layout can be manipulated in the home menu on older firmware, but I think the layout gets screwed up in giame. I remember trying this once. I think the menu allows for full customization btw. I have a Japanese ps4, so with my American games, the confirm/decline buttons are confusing.

    I actually had x/o swapped mt vita and ostv, but I reverted them back. it can be confusing between playstation and a NIntendo console. then, there's the xbox controllers which I believe have swapped buttons.

    I thought you meant a hack was released for 6.50 and I got excited for a minute....

    I wonder if sony is hesitant to release new firmwares just in case they make another exploitable firmware. :P

    I think there is a exploit they're just sitting on it still, surprised it didn't release with kingdom hearts.

    I'm also waiting on an update. I need to get rid of hacked account. I've already done that on the ps3 and psv/pstv. I would also like to play dragon quest xi, since I bought it for the pc. it runs extremely slow on my px. I should've downloaded it first, but I went to steam. it didn't really seem too intensive. I'll just wait for the switch version. that version is supposed to be superior with orchestral music, and you can play in 16bit.

    I don't think exploit releases are tied to what games need at all.

    It seems more to do with when they find an exploit that has been patched by Sony already in a newer firmware, so it's safe to release it.

    Is button assignment different from button swap?

    I also have an asian ps4...
    Defaults are...
    X=cancel
    O=accept
    But theres already button assignments in the settings am i right?
    But it only works on the XMB. (Still default on user account selection and in-game of some games).

    With this new button swap, does it mean my asian ps4 will work same as eu/us ps4, wherein X=accept and O=cancel anywhere i go in the ps4 (XMB, all the games, user account selection)? Just like a region change? And where can i find this setting for button swap?

    Thanks...

    It's annoying having an asian ps4 and playing an r1 game sometimes. Last game I could remember was yakuza 6 giving me trouble.
    Yes there is another button swap in the settings area where you can change x to accept and o to cancel. It's a huge qol improvement for us owners of ps4 asian ver.

    Does anyone know if there is a recent version of the Android (unofficial) remoteplay app?
    I tried it years ago, but couldn't see one that works with recent android os

    the guy that was modifying the Android version decided to instead make his own called repl4y.
    You can find his updates on twitter -> https://twitter.com/Twist3d89

    The fact that Japan swapped the buttons in the first place is annoying as hell, and completely preventable.

    It did say "This option is available only for specific countries and regions."

    It's like a cultural thing. If anything it's the western version that wound up with them swapped for reasons.

    Now, what the hell is Niconico and why should I care that it can got o 720p now? never even heard of it before. I hope we get a new update soon that everyone is forced to update to before using any online stuff (like Youtube) that allows Garbledyfloop to go up to 1024x768. 8-{
