It appears there is a new release but it can be considered as an "old release" coming to the PS4 Soon, UPDATE: the exploit has been released . A couple months ago we seen Team FailOverflow release the breadcrumbs to exploit v4.05 firmware with the details reveled on there blog ": The First PS4 Kernel Exploit: Adieu" Since that time developer SpecterDev has been on a mission to put the pieces together for a workable jailbreak (not an easy task by any means) on the PS4 (4.05 firmware)., Over the course of the past several months SpecterDev has spent many hours of work to get this exploit stable state usable state for anyone interested. He has done amazing work for the PS4 development community is a vital step forward for the PS4. Now 1.76 is not the only window for the PS4 but also 4.05 provides a new window that is now easier to obtain, but will this be enough to launch the PS4 Homebrew Scene to a new level?
In my personal opinion i think we have another step or two before the PS4 Scene breaksout Personally I am not as excited about this exploit as some are from an end-user perspective, i do not think this will be a "golden firmware" just as i did not believe 1.76 ever was, both exploits have came to late in the PS3 life-cycle. Just as Team Fail0verflow themselves suggested in closing when they first detailed this 4.05 window and i quote "And so we say goodbye to a nice exploit." . As we can be extremely thankful for the contributions from Team fail0verflow we can also gather through comments and actions that they will not be the ones to release an exploit themselves or be the ones to give the fuel to something current, i could be wrong here but this is what I have gathered. So this exploit originating from them i would say does show there is a bit of steam knock off the exploit potential impact for launching a community, I think this is a great step forward but i do not think a 2nd PS4 is needed quite yet, i think there will be more to come as times passes, but that is your choice and i can only offer a different perspective then what others have been given, i would just point to my track record on being correct in many of these situation ;p . This is exciting on many levels but not sure its worth buying a 2nd PS4..?..?..
In this project you will find a full implementation of the "namedobj" kernel exploit for the PlayStation 4 on 4.05. It will allow you to run arbitrary code as kernel, to allow jailbreaking and kernel-level modifications to the system. . This exploit does include a loader that listens for payloads on port 9020 and will execute them upon receival.
You can find fail0verflow's original write-up on the bug here, you can find my technical write-up which dives more into implementation specifics here (this is still in progress and will be published within the next few days).
The following patches are made by default in the kernel ROP chain:
- Disable kernel write protection
- Allow RWX (read-write-execute) memory mapping
- Dynamic Resolving (sys_dynlib_dlsym) allowed from any process
- Custom system call #11 (kexec()) to execute arbitrary code in kernel mode
- Allow unprivileged users to call setuid(0) successfully. Works as a status check, doubles as a privilege escalation.
- This exploit is actually incredibly stable at around 95% in my tests. WebKit very rarely crashes and the same is true with kernel.
- I've built in a patch so the kernel exploit will only run once on the system. You can still make additional patches via payloads.
- A custom syscall is added (#11) to execute any RWX memory in kernel mode, this can be used to execute payloads that want to do fun things like jailbreaking and patching the kernel.
- An SDK is not provided in this release, however a barebones one to get started with may be released at a later date.
- I've released a sample payload here that will make the necessary patches to access the debug menu of the system via settings, jailbreaks, and escapes the sandbox.
I was not alone in this exploit's development, and would like to thank those who helped me along the way below.
Great news for the PS4,this is a great step forward for development but i caution people getting too excited about this and running out to buy a new PS4.
Personally I will get excited when we see a CURRENT FIRMWARE exploited, That will be the start to the Explosion of PS4 Homebrew IMO.
Update: via @Red: Much like ps3xploit I have hosted this files for others to use, in case anyone would like to mess around with this but doesnt feel like hosting the files themselves. http://redthetrainer.com/ps4/

PS4 4.05 Exploit for PS4, Released by SpecterDev..
By STLcardsWS on Dec 27, 2017 at 12:56 AM
ref00d (plugin) Released - Run Games / Apps that require a higher FW from your ownFollowing the big news from Team Molecule several weeks ago and effectively opening the system wide open, it was only a matter of time before we would start to see other developer's start putting the finding to use and we have seen the FAPS Team (team members listed below) have recently released a new (taiHEN) plugin called ref00d, this plugin is a big deal, as it will allows users/devs to use content that would otherwise require a higher firmware to be played/executed on a lower firmware for your exploited PS Vita or PlayStation TV. Typically not an easy task to reach but thanks to Team Molecule's research and the FAPS Team we now have a ready to use simple plugin solution to remove those firmware restrictions, see additional details about this plugin release in the release notes provided below by the development team.
[Update x2] RetroArch (PS2) Preview (includes 2 cores) - Introducing New Nigthly PS2 ReleasesUpdate (2x): Reports are coming in this PS2 Homebrew is also working on PS3 HAN & PS4 (5.05).
With progress making headway on the upcoming PS4 port of RetroArch from a group of developer's, Another developer (fjtrujy) started progress on a PlayStation 2 (PS2) port several months back (view previous progress) and now has a port that progressed enough for a public soft release, Now available in the new RetroArch PS2 Nighties for anyone interested in downloading and trying out the multi-system emulator on your homebrew capable PS2 hardware. @fjtrujy warns that many things need implemented yet and many pending issue remain and only these early release contains two cores currently 2048 and QuickNES. Which is likely to grow and a good gauge to base what is expected for the PS2 port, Would be to view the PSP as that should be a good baseline of what to expect and the PS2 may be able to handy more then the PSP likely.Continue reading
2018 - Year in Review: "Kernel Exploits, New Cryptographic Failures and a (tiny) new Console" [Poll]2018 is over and it was a very interesting Year, not only for you as a Gamer, but also for PSX-Place. We saw many Releases across all platforms, like several Kernel- and Web Exploits for the PlayStation 4, the PlayStation Vita caught a strong year as well, especially back in December, but also the PS3 was still very popular with many updated Homebrew Releases for System Firmware 4.82 for instance. We also saw some newcomers like the PlayStation Classic, where everyone knows how bad Sony designed it and why we (the Homebrew-Community) has to fix it. But in case you missed something, this Article will give you an overview what happend so far in 2018 for the whole PlayStation-family. And to round things up, there is a small Poll you can find down below where you can vote for your favourite Console of last year. Every Vote is welcome.
But what will 2019 bring to you? It's still early to say but maybe Sony will satisfy the all Gamer who asks for a "PS5". But the PS4 is still a powerful machine don't you think? Maybe we will see a new Kernel Exploit for a higher System Firmware with the hope that it will lead into a proper Homebrew Community. But however the end result will be, we hope that you will stay faithful to our Community, so you won't miss any action in 2019. And speaking of that, we wish everyone a Happy New Year 2019 and may your dreams/wishes come true.Continue reading
