    Remember when we talked about that the PS4 is still in search of it's full potential and that the Developers are still hard-working with Exploits and other cool stuff for newer System Firmwares - like @SpecterDev does with System Firmware 5.05 - then you shouldn't be suprised that other great Developers like @Mathieulh are also using their research for exploiting even newer System Firmwares - as he showed it with his little "sneak-peek" for System Firmware 5.53. This would mean that the lastest System Firmware from Sony would be exploitable and Homebrew would be possible - by the current state of reading. --- UPDATE: @mathieulh gains access to a Kernel Exploit on System Firmware 5.55 as well --- Check Down Below for further information!

    Before you wonder, what the hell is he talking about in his tweet with all this confusing crypto messages, it seems that he was able not only to dump the latest System Firmware, but he was also able to decrypt it - which could lead into further investigations for a Kernel Exploit on System Firmware 5.53 - if there isn't already one. But before you get to excited, such research needs some time, not only for developing and making them compatible for your PS4 to install it by your own.

    But there are also good reasons not to publish the exploit right away. One point is that as for previous exploits, a compatible SDK is still missing, which means that there is still nearly no useful Homebrew Applications available for developing and running from the PS4's Operating System - if you don't count installing Linux on your PS4.

    But there is also the fact that if he was able to make System Firmware 5.53 fully exploitable, then this would mean as already mentioned above that we speak here about a Kernel Exploit for the latest System Firmware. There could be some advantages, but also one big disadvantage, namely that Sony could easily fix it in their newest System Firmware. Then the cat-and-mouse Game would begin again from the Start and a new way would be needed to find a new method to exploit even a newer System Firmware released by Sony.

    Small UPDATE: "Sneak-Peak" for a Kernel Exploit on FW 5.55 as well !!!

    @mathieulh gains access to a Kernel Exploit on the newest System Firmware 5.55 as well and shows in a humoristic way that both Sony and other Developers aren't a challenge for him :)
