Enable Offline PS4 Remote Play on Firmware 5.05

This guide will show you how to unlock Remote Play on your 5.05 homebrew enabled (HEN) PS4 without updating or signing into the PSN. Remote play is a great function on the PlayStation 4, allowing you to play your games on a range of popular devices and operating systems such as the PS Vita, Windows, iOS and Android. Remote Play works by streaming the gameplay over your network, this means that it does not heavily rely on the processing power of the device you are streaming to. The Remote Play function is usually locked behind the PlayStation Network; preventing PS4's on firmware 5.05 from being able to use the remote play function as they cannot sign into the PSN without updating.
