just got a response from @Leeful:

Code:
This version works on 9.00 if you do not use goldhen or if you do use goldhen you must wait for the PS4 menu to reload after the crash like [URL='https://github.com/illusion0001']@illusion0001[/URL] mentioned.[/code}

There are 2 options:

Option 1: (the best option)
  • Run the kernel exploit but do not load goldhen. Instead just load the ps4debug payload.
  • Open the PS4OfflineAccountActivator.exe,
  • Enter your PS4's IP address,
  • Click 'Connect', Click 'Get Users' ,
  • Activate your profile.

Option 2: (not good but still works)
  • Run the kernel exploit and goldhen.
  • Load the ps4debug payload,
  • Open the PS4OfflineAccountActivator.exe,
  • Enter your PS4's IP address,
  • Click 'Connect', Click 'Get Users'
  • At this stage your PS4 will go to a black screen and the PS4OfflineAccountActivator.exe will crash.
  • Close the PS4OfflineAccountActivator.exe and wait for your PS4 screen to come back with a error screen.
  • Close the error screen and when your PS4 home menu is back open the PS4OfflineAccountActivator.exe again. This time it will work and not crash on the 'Get Users' stage.
If you have used the goldhen option the goldhen settings and debug menu will have dissapeared after the system error so you will need to reboot your PS4, but you should reboot it anyway after you have activated your profile.

No, not with app2usb.
It would only work that way with extended storage, not app2usb.

I dont think there is a solution. You would need to reinstall all the games again.

To play games that are installed on a USB drive on another PS4 the drive needs to be formatted as an Extended Storage drive not an app2usb drive.

It might be possible to plug in an app2usb drive and an extended storage drive and move the games from the apptusb to the extended storage but I dont know if that would work because of how app2usb works.

^^ Just tested it and it worked. it moved a game from my app2usb drive to my extended storage drive on my 9.00 PS4.
To test it I then plugged my extended storage drive into my 6.72 PS4 and the game showed up and worked.

The down side is that the app.pkg for that game is now 0 bytes so it will not work from the app2usb drive anymore, but I was expecting that to happen.

Sorry I am really confused. What do you mean activate the console??? Do you mean that a fresh clean new Ps4 HDD with say 9.0 installed on it wont be able to work because it requires online activation?? Or is it JUST for PSN accounts? Is it possible to make a completely offline account?

As an example, I migrated my PSN and all my saves I care about to my ps5. I want to replace the PS4 HDD and just start from scratch with 9.0 completely offline. Is that possible?

All it is really used for is to enable the option to copy your saves to a USB dive.
This option is usually only available if you have officially connected your profile to PSN.

yep, that's what happened to me. when I tried deploying goldhen again, it said it was already active, so I was forced to restart. I didn't try account activator after that happened. well, actually, I think I did when the screen came back, but I was using it when it was already open, so it didn't work. I don't think I tried closing it, then opening it again.

You can use as many app2usb drives as you want. you can also use an app2usb dive and am extended storage drive at the same time.

If you have 2 app2usb drives plugged in at the same time you must make sure they are mounted to the same usb0 and usb1 every time. There is a setting for this in the app2usb.ini

So it has nothing to do with playing games which request internet connection for saving, am I right?
