oh my this would be awesome to have customs in RB4 on the PS4 - I don't really play keys so that is a moot point for me.

 

Do you need to be on an older firmware ?

 

I haven't actually booted up my PS4 in a long time but I know I am on > 4.05

You can be on any firmware up to and including 4.55 at this time. But, I am still partway through writing the midi converter, and haven't written any converters for .rbsong yet. So it will still be some time before customs are fully working.

thats okay - will wait with eager anticipation !

 

i will have to check tonight to see what firmware i am on though - is there a jailbreak that you need to do first ?

 

sorry haven't kept up to date on the ps4 scene

Yes there is a jailbreak. It's a "temporary" jailbreak in that you have to re-apply it each time you start the console. But, it's as simple as visiting a web page in the internet browser. I'll be writing a complete tutorial once all the tooling I'm working on is ready. Unfortunately, the only way to make custom PKGs (until someone makes an open source tool) is by using leaked SDK tools so I won't be able to provide those. I'm looking into a way to do this without needing to make PKGs, but I have no guarantees on that front.

thanks maxton - unfortunately i am on 5.01 firmware so i guess i might have to look for an older console if i have any hope of customs on ps4.

 

unless of course they come up with a jailbreak for current firmware.

 

appreciate all that you are doing here nonetheless.

There is a private exploit for 5.01 which might get released in the near future, so I would stay on 5.01 if possible.

Why would you say such a pessimistic thing? I can already load custom songs onto my PS4's music library. I put the chances at 99.9%.

Hey Maxton - I been following the scene and it looks like an expolit for 5.01/5.05 may get released soon !

 

Any news on getting customs into RB4 ?

I'm still working on the midi converter. If anyone knows C# and wants to help speed up this process, please feel free to help! All my work can be found at https://github.com/maxton/LibForge

Yes. I will start a new topic when I have something to show for all the work I'm doing. Until then, patience is key :)

Does this mean its a sure thing? Because tbh the song limit kills Rock Band 3 for me, I really wish that wasnt a thing, but glad to know Rock Band 4 doesnt exactly have that issue.

I have a OG PS4 waiting to make my Rock Band 4 customs machine if when this happens.  Good luck!

If you have a decent PC the song limit can be "removed" (Or should I say, modified) with Dolphin. Just a heads up.
