PS4 Firmware 2.00 - Quick Review by SKFU on PlayStation 4 TitleIDs

650°
4w ago - Following Sony's PS4 Firmware 2.00 release and his previous update, today PlayStation 4 hacker SKFU shared a quick review on PS4 Firmware 2.00 discussing the importance of PS4 System TitleIDs.

To quote: It took a while until I found some spare time to check firmware 2.00 for the PlayStation4, but it was worth it!

First I'll show you two funny screenshots from my PS4 (below)

  • I told you the TitleID research is important, didn't I?
  • NPXS20993

So yes, I could finally access the ★Debug Settings on a retail console. But no, we can not use it
Sony learned their lesson and removed the back-end so this is not very useful for us.
Maybe there is a way to unlock it's full potential, but I could not find it, yet.

Here I explained how to start...

Rumor: SKFU Claims DriveClub May Brick Your PS4 Blu-ray Drive, Details

6w ago - Following up on his previous PS4 hacking update, today PlayStation 4 hacker SKFU posted on his blog that DriveClub may brick your PS4 Blu-ray drive with details on the rumor below.

To quote: DRIVECLUB may brick your PS4 Blu-Ray Drive?!

Driveclub is currently facing a lot of problems including a few delays, server-side problems and more. Today a friend from Hong Kong told me about a major bug which he faced due the release day of Driveclub.

Since he is PS+ subscriber, he has access to the free PS+ version of Driveclub. He added it to his download list, waiting for the next time he'd be online.

Meanwhile he also purchased the disc version of Driveclub. Full of "GREATNESS AWAITS" thoughts, he turned on his PS4 and went online.

As the Driveclub PS+ version was already in his download list, it began to download. While the game was downloading, he wanted to use his disc version and pushed it inside the PlayStation 4's Blu-Ray drive.

It seems that no one actually ever tested if a user would do that. The disc drive of my friend stopped working right away. Ejecting and inserting works fine, but the PS4 won't read any...

After we checked the environment of the PS4, we should continue with more detailed analysis where, how and what we can im- & export from the system to actually affect it.

Let's see what our general I/O possibilities are first:

USB

Have you noticed the application "SHAREfactory" on your PS4? One of it's interesting features is to import music files via USB. Vulnerability? Maybe. At least [Register or Login to view links] has all actual patches applied.

SHAREfactory USB music import. Also useful as mediaplayer

Another USB feature is the import and export of screenshots, gameplay videos and savegames. Worth to check I'd say.

HDD

As expected the HDD is encrypted so you can't do much here, yet. But remember the PS3...

Sadly there's no blueprint of the PS4's filesystem as far as I know, so how would we know where we want to go?

We need to collect as many information about the filesystem and it's environment as possible to even be able to determine our possible research targets and vulnerabilities.

For any PlayStation platform there are 3 good and legit ways to go for:

Way 1: Open Source Software & Open Documentation

Any Open Source Software used on the PlayStation4 is listed at [Register or Login to view links].
A quick look through them reveals that many licenses force SONY to distribute copies of the used software which for the PS4 are:
