For those of us who are on firmware 4.55 however, here’s some very good news: developer CrazyVoid has ported the code to firmware 4.55. And yes, because 4.55 is hacked, it is now possible to enjoy what Mira brings to us.
People have been starting to use Mira on their 4.55 firmware, and are reporting about some of the cool stuff you can do with it, at least as a developer. In particular, Mira lets you look at the kernel log of your PS4, which is extremely convenient to trace bugs.
The change in itself is mostly made of specific offset updates. Not sure if CrazyVoid just makes it look simple, or if Mira is done in a way that porting to more firmwares is pretty straightforward. Probably a combination of both 🙂
In parallel, developer ValentinBreiz, known for his work on porting Linux launchers to various firmwares of the PS4, revealed the Open Orbis team are working on a companion app for Mira. The app will let you manage plugins and more directly from your Android phone. That sounds pretty cool (although it probably assumes the PS4 will need to be connected to at least your local network, which personally I am reluctant to do because I’m worried I’ll mess things up and it will end up connecting to the internet). The source of Mira Companion can be found on OpenOrbis team’s github here.
