Introduction

 

Have you ever wanted to get some nice information over the PS4 by some great developers? Well today is your lucky day! PS4 Hacking Presentation was streaming the full review today over the PS4 Hacking, and more consoles being hacked. We're sticking with the PS4 soon, and i'll see if I go over the 3DS soon. So i'll go ahead, and break the whole presentation down, if any of you have feedback or what not. Feel free to post down in the comments down below. Pretty good start for the PS4, and maybe we can see some more stuff later on in the future for 2017! 

Hacker Marcan of Team Fail0verflow has gone over a bunch of things of the Playstation 4 Console, and how they worked on it by reverse-engineering it. Today I bring you the thread that covers most of it from his presentation! Trying to translate his words from the presentation so you can get a deep understanding of it, and learn more about it of course! I wont be going over everything, but it will mostly be everything said by Marcan at the CCC33!

Gentoo Linux Boot - PS4: PC Master Race

Team Fail0verflow introduces the presentation by turning on the Playstation 4 console, and booting up Gentoo Linux on 4.05 Firmware.

PS4's Motherboard

Marcan covers the PS4 Motherboard, and what it is / used in the console. We wont go over the whole presentation, but I will provide the presentation links so you can go check for yourself, and the whole video of him explaining it can be found below as well. So the Motherboard part is just a little small tease for you to learn of off here on NGU! Down below shows exactly what Marcan had to say about the PS4 Motherboard. You can find everything else in the video/presentation link!

Aeloia Southbridge
 

 This is a codename for the PS4's Motherboard. This connects to a bunch of things such as the USB Ports, Hard Disk -- it has SATA.



Liverpool APU
 

 This is the main processor for the PS4 (GPU & CPU) which is done by AMD.



Blu-Ray
 

 The Blu-Ray Drive SATA connected from the Southbridge



Wi-Fi Bluetooth
 

 The eye on the internet is GM III.



How do we attack one of these? Which ones do we attack?

Most of the Internet Interfaces -- are CPU Controlled. The CPU issue commands, and devices replies. Devices can't really do anything so you can't break the memory. You can exploit USB behind a bug in the USB Driver, but we're back to the no code issue. So DDR5, that'd be great, we can just write to our own memory, and basically only the entire thing, but it's a very high speed. It's very exploitable if you're making a secure system. Don't assume they can't own DDR5, because we will, but it's not the path of last resistance, so they're not going to do that.

There's a thing called PCI Express in the middle of the photo shown above of the PS4's Motherboard. PCIE is very fun for hacking even though it might seem intimidating because it's bus mastering that means you can DMA the memory. It's complicated, and most things are complicated to implement properly. It's robust, people think that PC is who do high-speed. It's not, its high-speed, but you don't need matched traces to make it work it will run over wet string; like you can hot-wire PCIE with pieces of wire, and it will work at least at short distances maybe it's not bad as you think. 

It's delayed tolerant so you can take your time to reply, and the drivers are for failed, because nobody writes a PCIE Driver assuming that the devices are evil though of course everyone should because the devices can and will be evil, but nobody does that. 

What is PCIE?

Conclusion

There is a TON more they had gone over with as well. Marcan provided us the slides of his whole presentation for you to go check out, (incase you want to lurk around and learn a few things ). 

 

Furthermore, he also provided us a few informational links for us if we ever needed them which you can find here down below!

He demonstrated himself getting on 4.05 Linux through of course his PS4's Web Browser which you can see for youself with the video i'll provide down below by @MrNiato! Thank you to him for cutting the video for exactly the PS4 Hacking Presentation which shows you Marcan explaining about the whole thing. Now, you might say that is amazing, but don't worry. He wasn't the only one that actually got it running on 4.05. We all know @flat_z do we now? He was also one of the first to boot linux on Day 1 for the PS4 4.05 Update! 

Once again, STEAM was ran on the PS4 Console playing Portal 2 confirming the 3D Drivers working by Marcan! Marcan also showed comparison of PCs / PS4. PS4 is NOT a PC!
