When a groundbreaking exploit hits a device, the most successful hacks that launch a scene, are the exploits enabling things such as un-authozired code / homebrew on the device with the latest firmware at the time the exploit goes public. As this is obviously when you have the biggest audience (end-user & developer's), In most cases the manufacture makes a quick update in the days / weeks to come, as Sony wishes to patch the exploit , however by then many people and outside news hubs are educated and well aware to stay on that firmware and as they look and await the firmware update that patches the expoit,
It has been a while since we have had a report about Universal Media Server. The latest build just dropped so I thought I would wrap up of some of the last few updates for the app. Over the past few months UMS has had its fair share of bug and stability fixes but
Scene Contributor zecoxao is a wealth of knowledge in the PlayStation Hacking Communities and this time around an improved process is shared in this new PS4 Tutorial that has been prepared, as @zecoxao shares "How to Read & Write to process memory using roc_rwmem" on a PlayStation 4 Console with v1.76 Firmware Installed .

Well I don't know how true this is but even @Joonie from the Rebug Team Tweeted seems to think this is legit. The "hackers" Chaitin Tech seem to be funded commercially. The event is legit and has been known to showcase hacks before. So this holds some water as even infamous PS3 hacker geohot (not affiliated with the group) who we all recall helped bringing Linux back to the PS3 was at the event on stage while the team demonstrated the hack!! (See included pic). They haven't stated when or if they will release anything at this point but we will have to wait and see I guess.
Guys I am seeing it all over the net, alot of hype over this and that about this exploit or this useless thing people are trying to claim will lead to something. The PlayStation 4 stuff is a hot subject no doubt and we are seeing alot of CLICK BAIT from around the scene on these subject due to amounts of traffic a false claim or story can generate. Intentionally leaving you on cliffhangers /(for future hits) and misleading you to think something big is coming from that source of news they fabricated. When many times it has already been debunk years ago (yes old stuff gets recycled often) or its simply a fake dev that is created with some fake content.
As we wait and see if any kernel exploit arises for use with the HENkaku (3.55 PS4 Port), Things are still moving forward on PS4 firmware 1.76. Which in turn Scene contributor @zecoxao has released a new Tutorial for PlayStation 4 , that will show how you can on PS4 firmware 1.76 "bypass" pfs protections completely.
