    Ps4 jailbreak is the best…..

  2. You don't have to know says:

    You can use fiddler2 proxy. You can set it up in network settings and redirect to any page via fiddler auto-response function. This is the 3rd way. 😉

    It seems that a version 1.76 very few!

  5. games says:

    3.15 when will be ?

  6. Adrian Boner says:

    Ok in a few months we will be able to obtain our lvd keys and get simply get some unsigned goodies btw the sony gave up on its current console owners to make another redesigned console to strengthen its security flaws so there you have it.

  7. Handy says:

    For some reason I was able to just load my browser and run Linux. No need for the User Guide or Router thing. How’s that? Is it because I updated using GTA5?

  8. WTF says:

    Why ? Still can not comprehend why anyone would want to run Linux on a PS4 when it can easily run on any PC.
    The exploit is a big step but until there is a CFW then there will never be full control on the PS4 and yes it should included running backups if so desired. Faster loading and not wearing out your expensive laser.That’s the whole point in hacking the PS4.
    Until then I don’t see the point of this. It’s a waste of time.

      “The exploit is a big step but until there is a CFW then there will never be full control on the PS4”
      Today for the 1.76 FW: Root privilege + full access memory (outside the sandbox) + run unsigned code = Full Control

      • WTF says:

        Full control would be the ability to run PS4 games on. Which it can’t. That why we all brought a PS4. Not to run Linux on. It’s a gaming console FFS. This is useless and has no control

          Hello, I do believe your site might be having internet browser compatibility problems.
          When I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however when opening in Internet
          Explorer, it’s got some overlapping issues. I simply wanted to provide you with a quick heads
          up! Besides that, excellent site!

  9. sam says:

    can you tell me whats the purpose of this ?? can we play pirate games ???

  10. Fimo says:

    Really nice tutorial ! 🙂
    But honestly how many people are concerned and will use it ? … maybe zero !?
    A first step to make and grow the community would be to release a new webkit exploit working on 2.xx FW.

    – The Jailbreak requires 2 exploits: webkit expl 1.76 to run a piece of code + kernel exploit to have root provilege / exit sandbox (declose expl runs on 2.00 FW… 2.57 max?)
    – people who are expecting soon a new kernel exploit on 3.xx are dreaming.

    • Far2great says:

      I recall the first group of people that was able to run linux and played Pokémon said their are many flaws in the system which mean that their are many ways for great possibilities

  11. Fat says:

    But this is only for linux. The difference is that geohot find the master key on the ps3 , here find “only” a exploit to install linux and not the key to run CFW or games. Or is diffence?

  12. Davee says:

    Useless and nonsense what’s the point of this ? I salute the hackers for their work, but stop lying to ourselves we all want a CFW, i’m never gonna install Linux on my console it’s a total waste of time sorry.

  13. D-Ecks says:

    Here is new, much easier way – “magic dns” without any router reconfig or link clicking. See it in my post.

  15. sig says:

    i wonder how to run an emulator from console, i saw someone did it but lost the link on how

  16. Vektast says:

    I want to see a linux on ps4 with deskop gui, because it would be more funny, just like it was in CCC’s failoverflow video.

  17. sig says:

    Useless and nonsense what’s the point of this ? that is useless and nonsense comment, if u dont understand the value of running linux on the console then u for sure are on the wrong site.if u want cfw then u should come back in maybe months or years.

  18. RobMx says:

    I look forward to new information about this post, he is publishing in Brazil to help understand the Portuguese learn. Thank Wololo.

  19. John says:

    I want emulator more than linux. Any emulators for ps1, ps2, fc, sfc, pce, neogeo, n64, dc.. etc that will be great. Ps4 should powerful enough. At least had 8gb ram inside. Does someone knew programming. That maybe can modify code from pc environment to suit ps4. (X86)

  20. Scyther says:

    Are the driver for the linux writen yet?

    Linux on ps4 could be use to do scientific computing if we can use the GPU.

    Anyone has info on the “power” of that linux? (or a link to where I could get these info, I can’t find anything on google

    • Arlette says:

      Nice post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites
      I stumbleupon everyday. It’s always interesting to read articles from other authors and practice a little something from other

  21. Salar says:

    Looking forward to it , a great news for the scene , i hope that the driver with the graphic works fine , i heard about networking issue ( i have a ps4 running on 3.15 🙁 ) i guess getting steam os to work with PS4 will become the next biggest step, but it will require lots of working to be done , for example designing the controller , and the drivers to communicate with the controller , and secound that sony wont come up with a plan to go against valve to hard code something inside the images that wont allow us to run it on PS4. i guess time will tell.
    thanks to everyone in the community for hard working
