I came here to simply say THANK YOU.
It's almost like having a custom firmware where I don't have to load hen every time I restart the console, because previously I had to wait for 2 to 4 minutes before loading hen otherwise kernel panic is a possibility.
However with this exploit I just start the console and load hen instantly and I'm yet to experience any kernel panic. (Knock on wood lol)

No, once it is installed it it should be still there after you restart.
What address does it try and load in the browser after you restart your PS4?

Yes it should remain when you restart your PS4.

When you open your browser does it show a white screen or does it show the 'Frequently Used Pages' page?

If it shows a white screen, leave it for 60 seconds. It should then show a 'Cannot connect to server' screen. Select 'OK' and tell me what it says in the URL bar at the top of the screen.

for people with focus to boot linux on the PS4 .. i added 5 BigPayloads* for boot into Rescue without a USB / HDD or SDD i think is helpful for people with blackscreen to test some other options

the rescue searches for paritions label gentoo or psxitarch so you can use all kernel for every distro for ps4

hope is ok for @Leeful:wub: :O?

how save ps4 webbrowser the Cache? can we cache initramfs.cpio.gz and bzimage and prepare the linux loader to load the bzimage and initramfs from Cache?

Getting hyped for backported 6.50 pkgs.. realized I'll need an updated HEN to install them. Currently have Al-Azif cache installed. Also have a ESP8266 handy. What is the simplest way to install this completely offline? Thanks

The USB method is the most popular and simple way to install.:)

Thanks. Sadly, I don't see an option for BinLoader on my current Al-Azif cache. It came with HEN 1.6, so it's quite old.
It might be named 'Original' in old exploit hosts.
If not, and you have alazifs DNS setup you can go to leeful.github.io/usb

Or, you said you had an ESP, so you can just use the ESP version.:)

@Leeful

Is this PS-Phwoar compatible with lower firmware like 4.05 or 4.55? Can I use "disable/enable update" payload to run on 4.05 or 4.55 console to enable firmware upgrade possibility for it?

Today my friend asked me to upgrade his ps4 to 5.05 (it was 4.55 and running old al azif cached host), I accidentally deleted the old offline cache and ran update firmware from USB but could not because of the disable update payload had been run once before. So I was kinda stuck with 4.55 console but was not able to upgrade it to 5.05 via USB.

So there were 2 options left for me, 1st one was to remove the hard drive and format it on pc then install to ps4 again and run upgrade firmware but profile/saves/trophies would be lost. 2nd was to find an exploit host that supports old payloads for 4.55 ps4 then run "enable update" payload or at least the FTP payload to access HDD and delete the dummy file then proceed to update firmware via USB again. Luckily, I found the "enable update" payload on al azif online host under PS4 section (there was 5.05/PS4/PS4 Legacy) and was able to update its firmware to 5.05 then install PS-Phwoar, he is now very happy with this.

I didn't try your host on that 4.55 console, I should have done first before going to al azif 4.55 section, so I dont have to ask this question :(

@ItsmeAJ No, PS-Phwoar! does not work on 4.55.
You did exactly the right thing.:)
When reading your post I was gonna suggest using FTP to delete the dummy files or using alazif's 4.55 enable updates but you did it already, thats great.:)

@Hayato213 To use Sandisk Connect, download the PC intaller version and copy the 'menu' folder from 'files/exploit/host/menu' to the root of your Sandisk USB.:)

    Not so sure about that - the tendency for "graphics uber alles" tends to lead to very high power consumption

    If you look at what's now portability graphics are catching up to console quality

    The thing is that the IATA rules impose a pretty hard limit of 100Wh on battery sizes for lithium batteries - and it doesn't look like Li is going away soon

    So if you want (say) 4 hours of runtime you need a maximum system-level power consumption of 25W
