The updated RP2040 Advanced Breakout Board is in! This is the v5.4E Passthrough Edition board that will let you connect an authentication device as MagicBoots v1.1 for PS5 play on games that support PS4 fightsticks. 



The RP2040 Advanced Breakout Board runs the GP2040-CE firmware. This firmware can do many things, but it is important to understand some things that it cannot do out of the box:

For native PS4 support you will need appropriate DS4 keys (which neither we nor the GP2040-CE team can provide) or a compatible USB dongle like the MayFlash MagicBoots v1.1

There is no native PS5 support but you can use the dongle from the above point which will allow for play in any games that support legacy PS4 controllers (examples include Street Fighter 6, Mortal Kombat 11, etc)

Neither the RP2040 Advanced Breakout Board or the GP2040-CE firmware is compatible with the Brook UP5 Playstation 5 Add-On.

Due to the open-source nature of the RP2040 Advanced Breakout Board the GP2040-CE firmware is constantly changing and improving. It is highly recommend that you first reach out to the official community. Additionally, you'll want to read the official documentation which are available here: new-window-icon.png
