    Well here is some interesting news in the PS4 world, so maybe running out and finding that Second PS4 on v4.05 might not be the only avenue to exploit the PS4 in the near future. There has been a hacker Volodymyr Pikhur (@vpikhur) who has been holding onto an exploit for over 2 years now and it involves Attacking the PS4 while in REST MODE and seems to be a powerful exploit with alot of potential and its said to be compatible with v5.XX Firmware!!!.The developer held a presentation of this exploit @ RECON BRUSSELS 2018, the information provided is much like fail0verflow presentation's of past hacks where it should point hackers (& Sony) in how the exploit can be achieved and where the vulnerability lies, from here it looks like it will be up to other hackers to build the exploit. If this is indeed supporting latest firmware's then any future updating would not be advised, and will be a great window for the PS4.

      • This presentation will talk about how custom Southbridge silicon, responsibe for background downloads while main SoC is off, didn’t help to secure Playstation 4. It will explain how a chain of exploits combined with hardware attacks will allow code to run in the context of the secure bootloader, extract private keys, and sign a custom kernel.

      Nice, just in time too because I stopped upgrading my system past version 5, I hope this one doesn't stay on private hands, this scene has been incredibly different from the PSP and PS3 scene, while they were full of drama they were also full of people ready to give back.

      guys does the ps4 jailbreak work on all models?
    12. Yugonibblit
    13. amritpalh
      which models will it work on?
    14. DeViL303
      There is a jailbreak that works on all models , but they must be running 4.55 or lower system software.

      This was never released, so we don't know what it works on, but as it exploits rest mode, which is a semi hardware semi software function, it will most likely not work the same on all models, if it ever gets released.

      Whoops! I I misunderstood
    16. Yugonibblit
      Is that because of married hardware?

      I gave really good advice in the psp scene days but it can be dramatic. I do recall being tired of people constantly making totally new threads asking if kingdom hearts birth by sleep would run. I replied something comical involving using a toaster to Homebrew hack it :p we can all be jerks at times but we mean well

      @Half Mile Ride: What was changed are peoples who are no interesting to give us anything because they earning money and/or build portfolio. They are not anyhow emotionally connected to the idea of scene. Look at this like on business: You found 0D, You can sell it and/or at least build fame as pentester...

      believe me - all scenes have a lot of drama. the 360 scene's is behind closed door mostly, but the ps3's is out in the open. ;)
