    “running another game might require to change the config file again.”
    “edit config title_id with game/app title_id”

    Shouldn’t this be as simple to fix as a homebrew program to edit the file and have a memory of previously listed ids?

  6. Redirr says:

    Go home morfhous
    No need you

    Honestly dont see the point of this, unless your a MASSIVE games pirate then 2tb internal hard drives are cheap enough.

    If your a pretent “home brew user” then 500gb is plenty.

    dude u’re saying ***, this payload is useless.
    what it does is like the database mod released time ago, it makes u run the game from external hdd, but the ps4 thinks that the game runs from internal.
    therefore it’ll take space in the internal.
    so unless you have 4tb internal u can’t fill a 4tb external.
    it’s useless.

      You’re just misunderstanding how it works, I believe. See CelesteBlue’s answer on twitter, which explains that the app.pkg on the internal drive is just a symlink. https://twitter.com/CelesteBlue123/status/970798687638245376

    • technology says:

      You’re misinterpreting things you don’t understand, mtn. Symbolic links just “fake” a file’s real location and size. A tiny sym-link file (maybe a few bytes or kilobytes in size) can “fake” being a 40GB game, but it’s not really taking up that space. It’s just “pretending to be” that huge file and running it from the actual location. (External drive.)

      • mtnjustme says:

        i understood that it was symlinks, but it takes space and that’s what bothered me (doesn’t matter if the game isn’t there, if it takes space i’m limitted to the max capacity of my internal hard drive).
        however, i was wrong indeed, because it virtually expends your hard drive to compensate for the lost size, something i’ve noticed and few others.
        lets give it an example:
        you have 50 GB / 100 GB internal hard drive, install a game which is 3 GB, now you have 53 GB / 100 GB, when u use the payload it transfers to the external hdd and virtually expends the internal hard drive, makes it become 53 GB / 103 GB, eventhough your internal is 100 GB capacity not 103 GB.
        great work indeed, sorry for misleading, i just didn’t want people to buy external hdd for nothing.

  10. mtnjustme says:

    this is false information, dont get your “4tb” yet.

    • technology says:

      I think you’re the one with false info. You don’t understand how symbolic links work.

      • mtnjustme says:

        i was wrong, quoting my last comment :
        i understood that it was symlinks, but it takes space and that’s what bothered me (doesn’t matter if the game isn’t there, if it takes space i’m limitted to the max capacity of my internal hard drive).
        however, i was wrong indeed, because it virtually expends your hard drive to compensate for the lost size, something i’ve noticed and few others.

  11. Messy says:

    Just move the game back from external to internal instead of fiddling with config files and whatnot, it’ll work. Holygrail just prevents you from launching any game from the external drive but once it’s back in the internal it works fine. It’s probably faster than all this mess.

  12. eXtreme says:

    what is wrong with this scene ? the source is extreme-modding.de and the article is exclusive. please do your research better next time. it’s always the same, people just ignore my site.

    • wololo says:

      I apologize. I checked your site before writing the article but 1) it doesn’t have the source code, 2) has very confusing usage explanation, and 3) your comment on your own site was misleading, saying that the app.pkg still needs to be on the internal drive, which contributes to people’s misunderstanding on what the plugin does. Whichever way I looked, if this is the “source”, it didn’t look like it.

      CelesteBlue, on the other hand, hosts the sources, has tested and explained how the plugin works, provides direct support to people with questions, etc… It made much more sense in this case to point that as the source.

    • xcrap says:

      maybe redesign your site so it doesn’t look like garbage

  13. dablakmark8 says:

    a CFW would be great though for 4.55 .,we can all but dream for now.

  14. purpur says:

    Any hope for 5.05?

  15. Nick says:

    Any good games that need higher firmware?

  16. Haka says:

    I understand Morfhous… In this world everyone can be found… And he doesn’t want to get a bill of a few million dollars from Sony….
    That’s why wololo won’t post any pirate game collection link or write post about “how to hack your ps4 and run illegal pirated games on that”…. Especially if Morfhous is a university student he doesn’t want to risk his studies with the probability of a police report…

      He’s a straight up Pu55y and it’s my job to wreck Pu55i35.

      You better watch your back morpheus, your on borrowed time.

  17. Vahid says:

    Is there a way to activate ps vita remote play in ps4 4.05?

  18. Jax says:

    can you play online? or is online gaming not possible with risk for ban?

  19. Mo Poge says:

    For those of you on 5.05:

    1) Wait just a little longer to see if a kernal exploit is released shortly after Sony pushed 5.50
    2) If the above is taking too long for you, sell (or keep as PSN-enabled machine) your 5.05 and get a 4.55 console and enjoy the hundreds (plus thousands of PS2) games that are <4.55

  20. jansen says:

    dont install this , i cant stream on p o rnhub after installing this tool..before this everyhing fine

  21. Tiber says:

    Guys, if I jailbreak my ps4 with 4.55 , will I still be able to play original disks that were released in 2018? ( which prolly require more than 4.55)for example UFC3
