The PS4 hacking community has been eagerly awaiting this moment. These modified PS4 consoles have undergone firmware modifications to allow playing copied games. Typically, PS4 hacks exploit security vulnerabilities in firmware versions 9.0 and below. However, Sony has been proactive in patching these vulnerabilities in subsequent updates, making it nearly impossible to hack or jailbreak PS4 consoles since January 18, 2018.

But after years of anticipation, there’s good news! A new PS4 hack has been officially released for firmware versions 9.0 to 11.0. This development is crucial for PS4 owners who want to unlock the full potential of their systems through hacking.

Hacking enables users to install unofficial apps and games, and make custom modifications not authorized by Sony. However, hacking may void the warranty and carries a high risk of being banned from Sony’s online services, such as the PlayStation Network. Additionally, there may be security risks associated with using unofficial software.

What is GoldHEN for PS4?

GoldHEN is a Homebrew Enabler for the PS4, packed with features. For all intents and purposes, you can think of it as a PS4 Custom Firmware. It offers in particular a remote package installer, an FTP Server, and a binLoader, meaning it’s pretty much the only thing you need to load when you Jailbreak your PS4, to have a lot of options at your disposal.

GoldHEN also supports plugins, cheats and patches, with easy access to online repositories for those game mods.

Download and run GoldHEN for PS4 11.00


GoldHEN 2.4b17 or above is required for PS4 11.00 Compatibility via the PPPwn Exploit.

You can Download GoldHEN 2.4.b17 here (You won’t find it in the “releases” section yet. simply download goldhen.bin from the “source”) This is a temporary link until Sistr0’s official link on ko-fi gets fixed. Alternate link on Mega here.

How to run GoldHEN on PS4 11.00

1. Download TheFlow’s PPPwn.
2. (optional) Make sure you run PPPwn Vanilla at least once
  • This step isn’t required, but in general you should be familiar with how to run PPPwn before attempting top run goldHEN. This will make any troubleshooting easier for you down the road. Instructions on how to run PPPwn are on the project’s github here. Once you’ve managed to run PPPwn “as is” and are confident you understand the process, move on to the next step.
3. Replace PPPwn’s stage2.bin with Sistr0’s special stage2.bin which can be found here. (there are two files in the archive. Pick the one that matches your firmware, and rename it to stage2.bin)
  • Important: this stage2.bin file is required to run GoldHEN, and only works on Firmwares 9.00 and 11.00 at the time of writing. Whether you want to update to Firmware 11.00 at this point is up to you. If you choose to wait, I’m guessing this version of stage2.bin will eventually be ported to more firmwares between 9.00 and 11.00
4. Download goldhen.bin and copy it at the root of a usb stick (do not rename it. Name should be exactly goldhen.bin. If in doubt, check this file)
5. Insert the usb stick in your PS4
6. Run the PPPwn exploit. At this point this should automatically:
  • Run PPPwn stage 1
  • Trigger stage2.bin from Sistr0 which will look for goldhen.bin on your usb stick
  • stage2.bin will copy goldhen.bin from the usb to /data/GoldHEN/payloads/goldhen.bin on your console’s hard drive.
  • GoldHEN should start at that point

For those interested in PS4 hacking, it’s important to note that this should be undertaken by individuals with experience and a strong understanding of technology to avoid potential complications. Additionally, careful consideration of the legal and security consequences is advised before proceeding. This is a personal decision that should be thoroughly weighed.
