Emulator on PS4: Gameboy emulator running on the PS4, source code released
After a stream of releases, developer CTurt just announced he ported Cinoop, his very own gameboy emulator, to the PS4.
Not so long ago, CTurt announced he had gained code execution on the PS4. He then released a simple pong game for the PS4, and also announced he was working on a homebrew loader. With a gameboy emulator released just a few days after these statements, he’s making progress fast, it seems.
CTurt had initially announced he would reverse engineer the graphics library on the PS4 in order to run his homebrew loader. It seems he has taken a shortcut as this is running through a HTML canvas. In other words, the PS4 does the processing job, and the rendering goes through webkit, which means the graphics lib was not used. Impressive nonetheless.
Just like for the Pong game, CTurt is controlling the homebrew through a Nintendo DS, as hackers do not have access to the Dulashock controllers through the hack yet.
Before you all get super excited, keep in mind that this is running through the Webkit exploit on PS4 firmware 1.76. Are you on firmware 1.76 or below? Yeah, I didn’t think so. This is some exciting news, but nothing that directly benefits the end user at this point, or that leads us to some full PS4 Jailbreak. It’s still awesome to see some progress.
