    Guess I won’t bother with getting a PS4 anytime soon. Yay drama.

    I bought a Ps4 chassis C at 2.51 fw and switched it off waiting for this moment. Finally!

    I delayed my Christmas until Hykem releases his Wiiu exploit. Lonely.

    I’m a developer myself and if such a thing happened to me, irrespective of the logic of doing it, it will be the last thing that community every see of me….
    As much as I’d love an exploit, I’d rather it came with a developer that knows what he’s doing, because he will probably be an important person with the subsequent community development.

    I want to know and Ps4 jailbreak will release or not?

  13. lol

    now everyone can be happy lol

  14. lol

    leaks are good for devs which not in console-hacker’s chain-of-trust who dying to get their hand to code for their lovely consoles.

  15. Danny

    Interesting even to im a advanced programmer ( not a pro ) i’ll study this with the explanation of c turt sorry for my bad english

  16. mike

    can i run pirated games with this?

  17. Jefphar

    “This release probably doesn’t change much who’s going to work on exploiting the PSP in the foreseeable future” I think this is a typo it must be PS4. Must have been PS Vita much better


    Thank you Wololo, you’re great ! Good works I love you.

    Excuse my english, I’me beginner ^^

    exiting news !

  20. percy

    I’m on firmware 3.15, and I think most of us so not so exciting. news.

    • Loki

      Unless you have 2 ps4’s One of which is still in it’s nice clean new box with firmware 1.76…….

    • nope

      Sucks for you, I have two consoles. One on 3.15, one on 1.76. You can have one too, it’s just you missed your window to buy one at a somewhat reasonable price

    • allbits

      That’s an important thing to note. The correlation between hack/development quality and number of users is quite clear to me. I hope that in the future new exploits will surface because many which are active in ps4 hacking actually have a console to work with.

      For me it’s not really economically or joy-givingly justifiable at this time to get a old console at a hefty price.

  21. JB

    And the Jailbreak that is good and that everyone desire… Nothing. Sounds like the ps4 scene never will appear for real. Many people is tired of this.

    • nope

      What are you talking about? With this release the exact opposite thing will happen. Now it can be a community effort from everyone who knows what they’re doing.

  22. tightflubbrtorso

    Well isnt your weewee as hard as a corn lol!

  23. DS_Marine

    Years come and go, leakers always leak.
    One doesn’t just “grab passwords from several well known hackers of the PS4 scene”. Meaning, are all the pro PS4 hackers idiots?
    There isn’t a store where they keep all their passwords togheter right?
    Just sayin’, not shooting the messenger…

    • wololo

      The problem is it only takes 1 person with a weak password to unravel lots of things. In that case, people seem to think the hacker had access to all passwords from thousands of people on psx-place.com and ps3hax.net, and some hackers were in that list. Some of them might have used similar passwords on scene sites and github…

  24. Hito

    My git has a public exploit online since the end of January. It’s just that nobody looked at the right branch / repo 🙂
