Today I dumped my hole content of my PS4. (FTP)
As curious as I am started looking in to some files using good old text editor.
boot_stats.txt and Vshlog.0.txt where very funny to see for my ps4 because
I never used my PS4 that much and boot_stats gives a nice report of that.
VshLog.0.txt gives a more detailed over look on the boot times.
Very nice stats
First time I Rebooted my ps4 by VshLog.0.txt
Tue,15 Dec 2015 16:34:26 +0100 [SceSystemStateMgr] shutdown for reboot
Build shows up.
Tue,22 Dec 2015 04:52:26 +0100 [SceSystemStateMgr] Boot up (build#612804, EAP, BG_DAILY_CHECK)
Last entry of my vshlog:
Fri, 10 May 2019 07:36:22 +0200 [SceSystemStateMgr] Boot up (build#1007501, POWER_BUTTON)
I find it strange there is no real information on the file structure of the ps4.
Maybe i remember it wrong but the wiki on ps3 got a lot of more info on that then ps4..
Found a short list on PsdevWiki but they only show the Partitions on the ps4 side.
And the decrypted folders:
Only on for the removable media they cover the file structure a bit.
been exploring the file structure of the PS4 and there are a lot interesting things to look at.
The title_workaround.xml file got my attention…. but no info about this file.
there is also a title_workaround.env and there is also a little bit of info on this for ps4.
- Z80: this .env files are known from cca 3.55? imho
- no idea what is new in 4.70 because i don’t have code/dumps for that firmware, but each fw brings something new
psdevwiki Env File the title_workaround.env is encrypted
The PS4 requests a number of .env files from Sony servers, they use some form of encryption so I am uncertain as to what they contain.
Apparently the ps4 holds a lot of these .env files.
So its not only a PsN feature and something tells me these contain some keys and of course SCEI DNAS Root 01
also the suspend_blacklist_ps4 suspend_ng_list.xml looks interesting…
