I've always wanted to make a PlayStation 4 homebrew. Running my own code, natively, on a advanced and boarded-off system like the PlayStation 4, there's some magic to it. I thought to myself, what's the biggest struggle when it comes to modding/gaming on my jailbroken PS4? Probably the installation of patch files, because Sony doesn't allow us to query to their patch checker servers when not signed into PSN. But what if I own the game? Shouldn't that be something I'm entitled to? Having bugs fixed and added improvements implemented to the software I purchased?

Introducing PlayStation 4 Patch Installer

Patch Installer is a client between ORBISPatches.com and your jailbroken PlayStation 4. It's a plug and play homebrew, with no additional configuration.

The homebrew is able to install any listed patch on ORBISPatches.com, as long as the game is installed on your console. Choose the game in the homebrew menu, and select which version you would like to install. The app will then proceed to download and install the patch while you can sit back and relax. I hope that makes this year a little more easy on you.

What about older versions? Easy. If you've already installed, for example, the latest version of a game, just select a lower version and that'll be installed instead. You've now successfully downgraded your game with just a press of a button!

That's nice and all, but what if I don't want patches? If you prefer to play on base version 1.00 for whatever reason, I've thought of that aswell. There's a Delete Current Patch option for every game at the top of the patch selection menu. That'll allows you to downgrade to base version 1.00 and play with no patches at all.

Visit the official ORBISPatches.com download page to download the latest version of Patch Installer for your console.

A: You're trying to install a retail patch for a fPKG application. Retail and fPKG cannot be paired.

I'll be looking into making the app HEN compatible in the future.
