    Wololo made a quick easy to follow guide to use SKFU’s proxy tool. This will allow you to sniff incoming/outcoming traffic and learn how your PS4 communicates with Sony’s servers. Huge thanks for this one to Wololo and many kudos to SKFU.

    To quote:

    The following guide covers the very basics of how to install and run a proxy server on your local computer to use with your PS4. This allows you to study how the PS4 communicates with Sony’s servers, for various reasons. A proxy lets you block some of the traffic (which has been useful in the past to let users access Netflix on their PS3 even when they didn’t have PSN access), or replace some of the traffic with connections to your own server (useful for being able to connect to the PSN on a lower firmware), or simply because you’d like to know what type of information your console sends to Sony’s servers.

    Charles proxy is probably the most popular proxy around here, but it is commercial software. Thankfully, scene dev SKFU has been creating and updating his own proxy server for windows, and this is the tool I will be showing today. There’s nothing really complex with installing and running SKFU’s pr0xy server, but many people assume it’s difficult and don’t even give it a try. Hopefully this tutorial will prove them wrong.

    SKFU has recently updated his Vita Pr0xy, removing the name Vita and adding a few features, here is a quote from the source:

    Recently I have read Wololo’s article “Best PSP/Vita Homebrew for November 2013” and noticed that my quite old “SKFU’s VITA Pr0xy” is still being used by many people.

    Sadly I kinda’ missed to release an updated version of my proxy software anytime. Thanks to the great feedback for my old proxy, here comes the very new one: “SKFU’s Pr0xy”.

    I did remove the “VITA” from it’s name since it changed a lot after the release of my old proxy server software, I don’t want people to think it is a limited to PSV piece of software. It definitely is not!

    But what it is and what it got:

    • The most user-friendly Windows Pr0xy
    • Keyword filter
    • Filter plugin support (users can create and share plugins)
    • Rules by traffic direction
    • Import & Export of rules
    • Blacklist
    • Raw data modification
    • Fast de-/encode
    • SSL Filter
    • DNS Lookup
    • and a lot more…

    Wololo statement about this CFE:

    In a very short statement on PSPKing.de, famous PSP/Vita Hacker Total_Noob announced he will be releasing an update to his recently published eCFW  – emulator Custom FirmWare, a new term to design a PSP Custom firmware running within the PSP emulator on the PS Vita – later this week.

    Total_Noob said the new release, named CEF 6.60 TN-B, will have bug fixes, improvements, as well as potential new features. The developer is asking the community to provide a comprehensive list of bugs if possible (rather than individual reports) so that he can start working on fixing as much as he can. We do have a thread where you guys can discuss bugs, but if one member of our community could compile this thread into a “clean” list, that would probably be super helpful for him.

    Stay tuned, as more stuff keeps coming almost every hour for this exploit.



    * Possibility to load unsigned homebrews and modules.
    * Possibility to load plugins (NPEZ00176/GAME.TXT, NPEZ00176/POPS.TXT).
    * Possibility to play ISO/CSO with March33 and Sony NP9660 driver.
    * Possibility to get back to TNMenu by holding the START BUTTON for some seconds.
    * “CEF” renames “EBOOT.PBP” to “FBOOT.PBP”.
    * Protects you from removing license files. If these files get removed, you have to download the game from PSN Store again.
    So you may lose “CEF” for Urbanix, if the game already has been removed.

    - Custom Emulator Firmware 6.60 TN-A
    - for PSVita 1.81 with Urbanix Exploit
    - by Total_Noob

    - Instructions
    * At first you go straight to the PSN Store and DOWNLOAD URBANIX AS SOON AS POSSIBLE.
    You’re lucky if you already own this mini/if the mini hasn’t been removed yet.
    YOU CAN GET IT FOR FREE WITH AN EU ACCOUNT: https://www.facebook.com/SonyPlaysta…23711397642076
    else just buy it.

    * Extract the “NPEZ00176″ folder to “PSSAVEDATA” and copy the new savedata to your PSVita with CMA.
    * Launch Urbanix game and after the savedata loading the screen should be flashed WHITE, before it automatically starts “TNMenu 0.1″.

    - About “Custom Emulator Firmware “CEF” 6.60 TN-A”
    Actually it isn’t correct to call it “CEF 6.60 TN-A”, because the kernel is always 6.60, but changes are within the PSVita Firmware. But anyways, it doesn’t matter how the CFW is called.
    -This “CEF” does NOT have anything to configure yet. All configurations of the previous Custom Firmwares are not available, as they are not useful for “CEF”.
    -It DOES NOT support PSX. By emulating 6.60 pops modules I get PSX working, but there is no sound, so better let it be.

    - About “TNMenu 0.1″
    This menu is developed with OSLib. IT IS STILL IN DEVELOPMENT, so it may have some bugs.

    * / to delete a file.
    * X to install a homebrew, or to load a homebrew/game. (by pressing R TRIGGER you load backup in march33 mode, else in sony np9660 mode)
    * Arrows to move.

    Prepare homebrews:
    * Create an ZIP archive of the homebrew, saved as: “FILENAME.ZIP/PSP/GAME/THISISAHOMEBREW/EBOOT.PBP”.
    * “FILENAME.ZIP” can be saved somehow, it just MUST BE UPPER CASE LETTER and the filename can ONLY BE 8 CHARACTERS LONG.
    * Save the archives all in the “NPEZ00176″ folder.

    Install ISO/CSO:
    You cannot copy ISO/CSO with TNMenu yet. In the next version I’ll add this feature.
    * Prepare and install PSPFiler 6.6.
    * Copy ISO/CSO to the “NPEZ00176″ folder, UPPER CASE LETTER, 8 CHARACTERS LONG.
    * Copy/Move the backup file to “ms0:/ISO/” with PSPFiler.
    * Play it from TNMenu.

    - Donation
    If you want to spend me some snacks and drinks, you can donate me: https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/websc…ton_id=8158859
    Thank you

    - Bug reports
    * Can anybody please LEAD A CLEAN thread (best if he is moderator) somewhere on a forum, where users can write their questions, requests, bug reports and etc
    So I have got a better overview than if everybody is mailing me.

    - Some informations
    * This “CEF” IS NOT ripped off from Coldbird’s CFW. If you want to know something, I gave my “CEF” to a very important person from the PSP scene a long time before and this very “trusted”
    person sent my “CEF” to Coldbird. Coldbird naturally reversed my trick of using own modules (f0-kd-systemctrl.prx, etc). Thumbs up to this very important person.
    Anyways it doesn’t matter, I just wanted to tell you

    * The kernel exploit does only exist on Emulator Firmware. That’s why “Tony” released the flash0 dump, doesn’t he?

    * The source code will be released after a new PSVita Firmware release.

    - Credits
    * Dark_AleX, author of Custom Firmware: Thank you master for your impressive work, I always admired you
    * Thanks to the guy who found Urbanix Exploit.
    * Coldbird for “his” kxploit.

    I have confirmed that this works on a US Vita running FW 1.81

    P.s: Possibility maybe got something lost in translation (and no, not me) Maybe is possible instead of Possibility or Chance.

    PlayStation Vita developer SKFU has acknowledged the fact that most download links and mirrors pertaining to his popular homebrew application, PKG xTractor, are broken, unavailable or in the case of Megaupload, seized by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). He’s responded to this by releasing an updated version of the application.

    Few changes have been made which include:

    • Updated crypto lib
    • Content type check added
    • Extended menu

    The application is used for .PKG unpacking & .PKG decryption.

    Note: PKG xTractor is only capable of decrypting .PKG files encrypted with the same key set as the PSP. (Very few .PKG files)

    Wololo’s Blog:

    SKFU updated his tool PS Vita pkg extractor to version 1.01. He did this release mostly because all previous mirrors had disappeared since the megaupload takedown, but there is no “juicy” new feature.

    PS Vita pkg extractor extracts PS Vita .pkg files. It also has some code to decrypt them, but that feature only worked for very early packages, when the encryption key was the same as that of the PSP.
