PS4 File Manager (PS4-Xplorer)

by Shaaz (Admin)

PS4-Xplorer is a basic tool of PS4 which can explore, rename, copy, paste, cut and delete files and folders completely on your command. PS4 file manager (PS4-Xplorer) allows you to play wav, ogg audio in the background, so you can perform other file manager functions with background audio. You can have a look txt, ini, bat, png and jpg with and without audio. With the internal hard drive, you can also access the external hard drive of your PS4 console.

PS4 file manager supports both 4.55 and 5.05 firmware. It’s clear that file manager application can be installed in the exploited system. You can create folder, rename file, delete file & folder etc with the help of PS4 file manager. Be careful using file manager if you delete some of the system files. You’ll lose access of your PS4 console until you reinstall the firmware. I have mentioned below some more details and installation introduction.
