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.

Nice job Maxton!

S/N: forgot how ugly rb4 used to look 😂
