  4. Brandonheat8 says:

    You were saying about those Christmas hacks wololo, lol we may see some.

  5. Razorbacktrack says:

    Already patched on recent firmwares

      • Definitely says:

        If you know the nature of the hack then it’s very unlikely it was not fixed. Remember the host system is a FreeBSD (and so is the hack). So when it got fixed month ago (almost a year now), Sony likely ported and deployed it instantly.

        • :O says:

          mhmm but likely, maybes and could is not proof. No1 can say definitely yet except for those involved in the hack.

      • cigel says:

        Note that it was about breaking out of a webkit. (browser).
        Information about this exploit circulated a while ago and sony has patched the browser.

        What CTurt has accomplished was breaking further out of web browser code into the kernel.

        Dumping kernel will open path to cooler stuff.
        Also, since PS4 is very close to a normal PC, its code could potentially run on , well, a PC.

    welp, another ps4 is too costly to buy another since i have many online games i want to keep playing.

    heres to hoping i come into some money before a ‘jailbreak’ of the ps4 comes out, theres a ton of games id rather try before committing to spend money on.

  7. Brenza says:

    Awesome work, I can’t wait to see where it’ll lead to 🙂

  8. 8pcd says:

    Nice, hahaha i checked if it`s april 1. hahaha

  9. fvig2001 says:

    So I guess this needs 1.76 right? Does anyone know what firmware the Japanese Dragon Quest Heroes comes with?

  10. lmao says:

    Vita is too awesome 😀

  11. NoPatience says:

    Someone plz hack the vita……..for piracy! :/

  12. APRON-MAN says:

    Exciting news can’t wait to see an article like this for the vita.
    Maybe something will happen with ps4remote play and the vita.

  13. Salar says:

    my dream to see something like this on Vita….

  14. wonre says:

    as I posted already in another CTurt work related thread a few months ago

    you can find ps4 1.70 in european PS4 bundle Last of us, if you can find one still sealed of course.

  15. Ohno says:

    Bufffff here comes again… The death of ps4 before get the best games like psvita…

  16. OldNews? says:

    I bet he’s gonna release nothing and make everybody wait. He is gonna try to get the fame for finding an exploit for the newest firmware for himself and can’t effort the competition looking through the kernel. Happy waiting.

  17. trapstar30 says:

    Good thing I got two ps4 one on 1.76 sitting in the closet waiting for this moment I’m hype this is big even if it’s still in the early stages.

  18. Manuel Eduardo Koegler says:

    Please don’t be patched, please don’t be patched, PLEASE DON’T BE PATCHED!

  19. Daniel_Migo says:

    Well… time to give some use to the 1.76 ps4 one that’s gathering dust….

  20. JoacoARG says:

    I want to know if the web browser of the PS3 can be used as a entry point like the Wii U, PS4, 3DS, or is more “Sandboxed”, anyone know?

  21. Ps4vaccine says:

    Ok this may be possible since the fsw isnt patched and 2 other vulnerabilites has yet to have been identified. This could lead to a future for the ps4 hack scene.

  22. Ps4vaccine says:

    Ok this may be possible since the fsw isnt patched and 2 other vulnerabilites has yet to have been identified. This could lead to a future for the ps4 hack scene. Thus can be hombrew.

  23. Ps4vaccine says:

    Ok this may be possible since the fsw isnt patched and 2 other vulnerabilites has yet to have been identified. This could lead to a future for the ps4 hack scene. Thus can be hombrew and future projects last like working on full backwards compatibility.

  24. RyoX says:

    Great News, Lets hope it arrives before Ps5 😀

  25. Sarge says:

    Well, I guess my PS4 1.76 is going to increase in value!

  26. gobulle says:

    Still in 1.76 😉

  27. TheZixGamer says:

    Exciting times indeed! And just as I finally pick up my PS4 😀 . There’s a lot of potential for what the PS4 scene could bring us on the homebrew/emulation front…. 🙂

  28. Amnesia82 says:
