    Meanwhile FB also launched its social VR platform. Too bad Sony & FB are less focusing on this, including VR panoramic screenshot where it could be done via PC with Nvidia tools.

    What's more worse when FB is now bombarding everyone with live game feed which I have zero interest of it. It's nothing than spamming other wall posts with their shitty live game feed.

    speaking of ps4, kiiwii told me something interesting earlier today, something I didn't know. he said that this new update 7.00 -- the kernel exploit is 99% from 5.05 is likely to work. the problem since 5.05 was that the webkit, userland exploit had been patched. I'm not sure if that implies the kernel exploit can't be patched or what. though, I find it odd that sony wouldn't patch it, assuming they know how it's done.

    I knew that was something sneaky going on from shony.
    They're kinda masking this up in order to release , you guessed it!
    Another update.
    I think it's time our boys find out what's going on with this.
    Sounds like there's a hole in this fb thing.

    Hey pinky im sure you noticed when they said security feats and all that.

    If theres one thing i agree is with what skinny said.
    The ps4 is a fail.
    Kiwii is on top of his game but even if one day this console gets fully exploited with cfw and all I'll only get it for 2 cents.
    Its shit.
    Apart from that is like you said pinky , he says the 5.05 exploits still working.
    As for me exploit or no exploit i couldnt care less for the ps4.
    I had one, paid gladly for it and for the games and they were shite.
    To play catherine with a tiny addon?
    To play god of war 3 , shadow of the collossus , alien isolation and many more titles with more frame rate?
    What kinda next gen console is that?
    Dirt is no fun.
    The menus are so lazy.
    Sold it.
    And that hype . Damn that hype.
    Its so huge that when you get the actual game...
    Its meh.
    Gimme back my ps3.

    I haven't touched my ps4 for a long time, mostly due to it having a banned account. I'm thinking about formatting and using that save mounter. I asked leeful about it, and he said he's been able to use saves from different systems and different accounts. I think it will work for me, but I don't know if you have to have the export saves thing for your system. to get that, you need to have signed into psn at least once in order to get an account id. that's the folder they're listed under. I think I can do that with my current account, since it has been online, but if I were to make a new account, I wouldn't be able to get an account id without signing in.

    That's what i hate about this next gen thing.
    If its not facebook its google and if its not them now its them console companies trying to get as much info as they can from their users as much as they can to control as much as they can.
    Thats why im staying back.
    A guy just wants to play some games not having to spend time signing into a bloody million accounts all over the bloody net.

    I can't help you with that pinky just because i dont have a ps4 and im not sure how their stuff works. Or they banned your psn account or they banned your console but in that case it would damage other people if you would sell it. No idea.

    Edit: plus they are trying to push everyone into digital only games...
    So that you note.
    Ps4 physical barely have anything in em.
    A disc and some piece of cardboard.
    Long were the days were you would buy a game and having a lot of fun appreciating the manual.
    Just sayin.

    only my ps3 console was banned. the account was on multiple systems, but everything is fixed except the ps4 account. I have a Japanese account too, but I'm going to overhaul the whole thing.

    there's a joke my Chinese teacher once told us about facebook. if you sound out the name phonetically it means "you must die" in Chinese. I don't think the joke is known in China, 'cause I told a Chinese person I met in Los Angeles the joke. it took her a moment to get it.

    There is a userland/webkit for firmwares above the 5.05 kxploit, if that still worked it would be out for everyone. I do know SAMU has been pwned allowing a select few to decrypt any file for use on lower system firmwares.

    It's a very very well known dev from both the early PS3 scene as well as one of the PS4 devs with tons of stuff like this under his belt. That being said he is responsible for a lot of what lead the way in the PS3 scene as well as partially responsible for what we have currently for the PS4.

    So maybe he is still on 5.05 but able to play without firmware restrictions. The homebrew scene on life support I'm sure he hasn't released it or maybe it isn't his or maybe it can be patched. I'm not that in the know but the folks I heard it from aren't script kiddies nor out for E-Peen.

    Some also seem to think maybe if not released for PS4 it may still be possible for the PS5 but that is purely speculation on anyone's part. Eventually all things get exploited and publicly.

    Just look how the Wii Mini was finally hacked this week or the recent DSi CFW, both were dead for years before anything happened. The PS4 does have some pretty good emulator's and a very capable system.

    Just the FW requirements impeed a lot of folks jumping on the bandwagon. If the PS4 scene were to have a current exploit I'm sure it would flourish just like the early PS3 days.

    I didn't realize this (off topic), but Mark Cerny is the lead engineer again for the ps5. he was the lead engineer for the ps4 and the vita, so there may be similarities.
