    its good to see how fast progress is coming for the ps4.

  3. Keko

    I would like to see some real benchmark running on the linux or ubuntu on PS4, so with this info we could compare it how it could real smote to run on steamos competition x sony ofw.

    Faster than the “first” l-o-s-e-r-s, yeah.

    Exciting times ahead!

  6. Senis

    It’s 1.6ghz. 800mhz figure without a load maybe.

  7. hehe

    i would be very happy if psvita can get hacked soon

    Only 800MHz? What is this the 1990’s?

  9. Abkarino

    @Charles Fasano, it is 800MHz * 8 Cores so in fact it is 6400 MHz or 6.4 GHz cpu now 🙂

    Vita is crying so hard for a little bit of love and attetion. Damn.

  11. Charles Fatso

    800mhz what is this the 20th century?

    Now a question comes to my mind… could someone with Linux on its PS4 analyze how FW updates are being decoded? This would potentially bring the option to decode 3.50 FW and build exploits.

      How would a person do this

      • SmartSmurf

        How? Dump the (encrypted) flash file system, then decrypt using functions within the ofw kernel (sbl stuff afaik), then find the modules responsible for handling fw update. Finally decrypt 3.50 fw update. Release. 😉

    You know what’s sick, there’s someone on ebay selling ps4 update files, 1.76, 3.15, etc. loaded on usb drives to “save you the time downloading the update” or some *** like that for $20. Like really? Dude gets like 4-5 buyers a month too

  18. Ghostman

    Lol even if the PS4 runs at 1.6ghz that still isn’t on par with a good Ivy Bridge CPU xD XD
