Description

GPCS4 is a PS4 emulator which was just started now compatible with Android and iOS.

Was a project created for fun, and for technical research.

The emulator still has many bugs, but having only been in development for a little over two years, the list of titles that make it in-game is a lot bigger than you may expect.

Features

GPCS4 will recompile all the shaders, untiling all the textures and upload all the buffers every frame, making it less efficient.

Kernel ELFs generated from memory dumps will not work since writable segments might have been modified into a state where booting is not possible.

Please generate proper binaries offline by decrypting ELF segments with SAMU on your actual console, not by dumping memory.

This project is not ready for end users. No binaries are provided, so you must build each of the three components (BIOS, GRUB, QEMU) yourself.

Furthermore, configuring the emulator to do something will be hard, as you will need to dump and decrypt the entire PS4 filesystem and sflash, including the kernel.

You might find hints on how to do this in the few scattered .sh files in this repo.

GPCS4 is optimized to use up to 8 cores of a processor but requires at least 4 core processor with SSE-4.2 and AVX.

System requirements

In order to run the application correctly, it is necessary to meet the minimum requirements given in the table below.

OS versionAndroid 9 (or higher)
CPUOcta core 2.0 GHz+
RAM6 GB (8 GB recommended)
Disk space64 MB
The table lists the minimum system requirements for running GPCS4 emulator Android

It is still possible to install the app on devices not mentioned above, but we cannot guarantee its proper functioning.

We recommend backing up the device on which the app will be installed before performing any installation of third-party apps not from the official app Store.

Update

There will be frequent updates which you can grab from the link below.

The last version implements the following new features:

•Implemented Liverpool GC/Starsha

•Implemented IH ringbuffer

•Implemented Command Processor

•Processing SAMU commands (30% completed)

•Vulkan backend for GFX engine

This application is from a third-party developer, so an automatic update won’t be available.

You will need to manually update the app by installing the new version from the APK file; the previous app will be replaced automatically.

All the updates have the latest fixes and optimizations, but their constantly changing nature means that little testing has been done on them and unknown bugs may appear.
