Accessing PS5 Game files with Jailbroken PS4, by tecniqueza
Scene member @canaltecniqueza has shared an interesting way to dump the contents of PS5 games, through some PS4/PS5 compatibility trick and with the help of a Jailbroken PS4. There is at this point not much you can do with this practically, but it’s still one more way to dig into PS5 contents. The trick basically consists in mounting an external PS5 drive onto a PS4, then access it via FTP.
Please note that this is unrelated to the recent BD-JB exploit chain.
Tecniqueza has shared an example with Astro’s Playroom.
PS5 Games File Dumps – How To
I’ll explain how I did it!
- get a hd format on ps5 as extended
- move the content to the extended hd
- connect the hd to the ps4 jailbreak
- open ftp and you will see and be able to copy the files
That’s fairly simple as long as you own a Jailbroken PS4.
Tecniqueza mentions that a “reverse” way is also possible, allowing to copy games via FTP to the PS5 external drive, then moving them to PS5’s internal memory. Some reports say that this works, which could be a way for people to backup their PS5 games. Note that the games will (of course) not run if you do not own the proper license for them, so those of you expecting this to lead to any kind of piracy, will be disappointed. Some exceptions exists, such as Demos, or, allegedly, Astro’s playroom, which don’t seem to require a specific license.

We’ll have to wait and see if this leads to anything useful down the line. Stay tuned!
