This hack is life changing for Playstation fans.
I know it has been some time since my last proper post and I know some time has passed since the community started hacking the Playstation Classic, but I have been holding out on trying out anything until a program was released that I felt was a worthwhile (and safe) time sink. I had received the Playstation Classic as a Christmas present from my Dad (and I’ve enjoyed it so far, feel free to check out my thoughts here) but now that I’m able to put more games on it, my enjoyment of the Classic has gone next level. Seriously, every night I’m playing a new game. The work that was put into this program called Autobleem is fantastic (thank you Screemer) and what is great is it runs separate from your Playstation Classic, so it isn’t messing around with the original software. I feel like Neo taking the red pill in The Matrix. I have become “The Hackerman”.
My list of games with FFVII theme
Currently, the build of games I’m running on my Playstation Classic (as you can see above) consists of Brave Fencer Musashi, Chrono Cross, Chrono Trigger, Dino Crisis 1 & 2, Final Fantasy Origins, Final Fantasy IV, V, VI, VII, VIII & IX, Final Fantasy Tactics, Grandia, Lunar Silver Star Story 1 & 2, Xenogears, Resident Evil 2, Mega Man Legends, Legend of Mana, Jersey Devil, Tomba!, Ehrgeiz, Pocket Fighter, Tony Hawk, Vagrant Story, Crash Bandicoot, Crash Team Racing, Spyro the Dragon, Diablo, and Croc 1 & 2. It feels great to play all these favorites of mine again. I know there are builds out there that have 200+ games on them (and I will definitely be adding more to my growing roster since there are some games I’ve never played before) but honestly, the assortment I’m playing right now is overwhelming. Autobleem has custom themes as well, so I’m rocking a Final Fantasy VII one (complete with the menu sounds from the game), as opposed to the standard version. (Update 07/28/19! I’ve since upgraded to the Playstation Anniversary theme which looks amazing, you can check it out and download it here). Even saving your games is exactly like the original Playstation Classic software, with the ability to save each game to its own memory card, as well as having the option to create a save state to continue from where you left off.
So now that I’ve praised it, I guess I should explain what is needed. In order for you to do this, you’ll need a USB that is 2.0 (I’m currently using a 64gb Sandisk Cruzer, which apparently works for everyone that is using the hack). This version of Autobleem is currently the best build (they are continually updating it as well), and I can absolutely see why. Downloading games to my USB and starting up the program is a cinch. It runs exactly like the core version of the Playstation Classic except, you know… it carries an enormous library of games to choose from as opposed to the original 20 that were released on the console. Honestly, the program is fool proof (if I can use it, you can) and I’m going to let Patton Plays explain how to do it. I’ve just recently subscribed to Patton and seriously he is extremely helpful and has made installing the program easy to follow. His video below is the one I followed.
The one thing that I wasn’t aware of is that in order for the games to work (and the program itself), you need to extract them. If you have used Retroarch (which also can be used on the Playstation Classic with this build of Autobleem, but I’ve yet to try that yet) you can just download the games, put them in a folder, and you’re good to go. With this hack, you’ll need to use a program to create a .bin file for each game (I used 7-Zip). This is most likely just standard protocol for this type of thing and I’m just a dumbass, but I’ve never done anything like this before so if you’re in the same boat as me… well now you know what to do.
The cherry on top to this whole endeavor I’ve started is the 8BitDo PS Classic wireless adapter I purchased off of Amazon. This little device will let you play wireless with any PS4 controller and allows use of the left analog stick to play your games. It even has the PS1 gray color which fits nicely with the system. The downside to this is that the analog stick is mapped to the D-pad, so you can’t play a game like Ape Escape that requires both sticks to function properly. Here’s hoping they update the adapter in the future to accommodate us. I’ve emailed 8BitDo to see if this is a possibility, so I’ll be sure to let you know.
If you already own a Playstation Classic this is a great way to get even more hours of enjoyment out of it. If you’re on the fence about purchasing one, I’d have to say only buy it if you’re willing to hack it. While the 20 games included are fine, being able to add your own makes the price of the system almost unbeatable. Now I know there are some home brew systems out there that are great, but the aesthetic of the Playstation Classic combined with Autobleem and the 8BitDo wireless adapter makes the tiny console the perfect choice for me to play these games on. – NVJ

Since the initial announcement by @Octopus (aka oct0xor on Twitter) here’s a summary of what to expect in his 36c3 talk that will be livestreamed in English (YouTube Channel) on Hacking Sony PlayStation 4 (PS4) and PlayStation 3 (PS3) Blu-ray Drives during the 36th annual Chaos Communication Congress at the Saal Borg Lecture Hall in Leipzig Germany on December 28, 2019 at 22:10 +0100 CET (4:10 PM ET – Current Eastern Time).
Below are further details from the 36th Chaos Communication Congress Schedule Fahrplan Events Page, to quote: Lecture: Hacking Sony PlayStation Blu-ray Drives
Xbox 360 video game console had a number of widely known hacks for firmware of its optical disc drives. However, it was never the case with Blu-ray disc drives of Sony PlayStation video game consoles. In fact, up until recently there was no much information available on this subject publicly.
In this presentation, I would like to share my journey of delving deep into internals and security of Sony PlayStation Blu-ray disc drives. As games are distributed within optical media, those embedded devices were intended to contain the best security possible.
I will demonstrate a multiple hardware hacks and several software vulnerabilities that allowed to dump firmware and get code execution on multiple models of Sony PlayStation Blu-ray disc drives.
In this presentation, I will share the following:
1) I will provide in-depth analysis of vulnerabilities and their exploitation to achieve code execution on multiple models of Sony PlayStation Blu-ray disc drives
2) I will discuss problems that I’ve encountered while reverse engineering the firmware and how I solved (some of) them
3) I will talk about security features of Sony PlayStation Blu-ray disc drives
4) I will explain what engineers did right and how achieving code execution on the drive doesn’t lead to full compromise of security
It will definitely be an interesting lecture for PS4 scene developers seeking to learn more about the PlayStation 4 Blu-ray drive security and vulnerabilities, however, end-users are reminded to remain patient for a future PS4 jailbreak exploit. those who can’t wait may want to locate a jailbreakable PS4 5.05 / 5.07 console to enjoy hundreds of PS4 FPKG games already available and cure cabin fever this winter!
PS4 Blu-ray Optical Drive Chip Swap Re-marry by NorthRidgeFix.com
If you really want to play Gran Turismo or Castlevania on the go, Sony’s PlayStation Portable is a great way to do it. But it gets harder and harder to justify carrying around a PSP handheld gaming console when you’ve got an equally powerful Android phone in your pocket already. The PSP had a good 10 years before being discontinued, and your Android can pick up the slack now.
There have been numerous PSP emulators available over the years, such as PPSSPP, but the one I find myself coming back to time and time again is UltraPSP by UltraGameEmulators, which is actually based off of PPSSPP. It’s one of the most stable PSP emulators I’ve used so far, and that’s reason enough to keep coming back. I’ve used it on a Samsung Galaxy S6, HTC 10, Pixel, and LG G5 with no issues. Plus, it’s free.
While UltraPSP is no longer available on the Google Play Store, it can still be sideloaded onto your Android phone or tablet. Just download the latest version from APKPure, make sure “Unknown sources” is enabled on your device, if not already, then install it by tapping on the “Download complete” notification, or from any file manager, and following the prompts. If you’d rather use an emulator available on Google Play, there’s always PPSSPP.
If you have your own ISO files for your own PSP game collection, great! If not, you’ll also need to install an Android app that will extract RAR, 7Z, ZIP, etc. archive file types, such as the free Easy Unrar, Unzip & Zip utility.
Step 1: Download a Game ROM
Once you’ve picked a site, look up a game you’re interested in playing and download it. Technically, you should have a physical copy of the game you want to play, so proceed with caution. Read the prompts carefully, and make sure you select the right download link on the page. Once it starts downloading, you should see the downloading icon in your status bar, and you can keep track of the download’s progress in your notification tray.
Once your file has been downloaded, make sure that the file size in your device matches the one that’s posted on the site. After that’s been verified, proceed to the next step.
Step 2: Extract Your Game File
Once you’ve downloaded the game, you’ll have to extract the RAR, 7Z, ZIP, etc. archive to access the ISO file.
- Open Easy Unrar.
- Scroll down and tap on the Download folder.
- Tap on the archive file for your game to check the box.
- Tap on the “Extract” button.
- On the popup, tap the file again to check it yet again.
- Tap on “Extract” one more time.
Once the folder is done extracting, scroll through the files inside to make sure there are no other files that need to be extracted. If you find another archive file, make sure to extract it as well. Once you see the ISO file, you can exit Easy Unrar.
Step 3: Start the Game
The hard part is out of the way, so now it’s time to play! Open up UltraPSP, tap on the control pad symbol, then select “Games.” Select “the “Home” button, then open your Download folder. Note that you have the option of viewing your selections in a grid or list format.
In the larger green boxes (the folders), tap on the game title that you unzipped—not the actual RAR, ZIP, whatever file. In my case, it’s Monster Hunter Freedom Unite.
If you only had to unzip one archive file, then you should see a cover image of your game title in a folder box. If not, tap on the game folder title again until you see the game’s cover image. Once you see the image, just tap on it to start the game.
Step 4: Play!
Now just sit back and enjoy the fruits of your labor. As you can see below, Monster Hunter Freedom Unite is working perfectly on my device. The controls will be overlaid on top of the game itself, which is how every other video game console emulator works. It takes some getting used to, but you can always pair a PS4 controller with your phone or tablet if you just can’t get the hang of it.
To give you an idea of how well this works, here are a few other games working on other Android devices using the UltraPSP PSP emulator. Not all PSP games will be able to work on UltraPSP, just as they would not be able to work on PPSSPP. Some are just not compatible, so if one doesn’t work, don’t be discouraged—try another.
