Modding[edit | edit source]

P5R is currently moddable on PS4 consoles with HEN-exploitable firmwares (5.05 and 6.72). A fake signed PKG must be installed of either the Japanese (CUSA08644) or Chinese (CUSA17544) release. In the case of 5.05, it must also be backported to that firmware. The English release is currently not dumpable due to requiring a higher firmware, therefore it can't be backported to 6.72 or lower for modding. Note that you need to hold onto the base fPKG of the game on your PC to generate modded update PKGs from.
Using the Dumper payload hosted on most exploit pages that include HEN (such as this one), you can dump the unencrypted contents of the installed PKG to your USB device and transfer to PC for extraction. To extract the CPK files, use this.

Mod Compendium Method[edit | edit source]

Following this guide, you can use the Mod Compendium to generate a custom update PKG for CUSA08644 to be installed on the PS4. Using HEN, you can install the PKG on your PS4 via USB (in the console's Debug Settings) or over the network via a homebrew called Remote Package Installer. The update includes an EBOOT that automatically patches out the intro logos for quick startup.

Manual Method[edit | edit source]

To create an update PKG without using the Mod Compendium (due to technical difficulties or personal preference), you will need:

You can optionally edit the changeinfo.xml file in your update directory before building to include a changelog that will show up on the PS4 (convenient for remembering what mods are installed). The Mod Compendium method automatically fills this out: <![CDATA[YOURCHANGELOGTEXTHERE]]>

  • Create your custom CPK and replace the empty PATCH1R.CPK in the update folder's USRDIR folder. The same requirements apply to the patch CPK as do normally to mod.cpk.
  • Run the command prompt and run gengp4.exe with the only parameter being the path to your update directory, like so: "C:\Path\To\gengp4.exe" "C:\Path\To\CUSA08644-patch"
  • Run the following commands with orbis-pub-cmd.exe in the command prompt also: "C:\Path\To\orbis-pub-cmd.exe" img_create --oformat pkg --tmp_path "C:\Path\To\OutputFolder" "C:\Path\To\CUSA08644-patch.gp4" "C:\Path\To\OutputFolder" "C:\Path\To\CUSA08644-patch" (or use orbis-pub-gen for a GUI). First, open the GP4 in notepad to make sure the path to your original PKG is valid as it is required.
  • A PKG should eventually be generated which you can send to your PS4 for installation. It may take awhile to complete the integrity check since P5R's original PKG is massive. However, it is apparently optional as you can close the program once the CPK is created (and is at its full filesize) without any corruption. This is what the Mod Compendium does automatically to save time.
