Release: OpenOrbis Toolchain (PS4 Homebrew SDK) 0.5.2
Scene dev SpecterDev has updated the OpenOrbis Toolchain to version 0.5.2. For those of you joining us into the wonderful world of homebrew for the PS4, have you ever considered making your own games/tools for the PS4? This toolchain is here to help you do that.
What is OpenOrbis Toolchain
The OpenOrbis PS4 toolchain “enables developers to build homebrew without the need of Sony’s official Software Development Kit (SDK). It contains the header files, library stubs, and tools to build applications and libraries for the PS4.”
