    Anyone have info on a new proxy for PS4 on 4.01? I just transferred everything back to my PS4 Pro and I need to activate it, but I can’t sign in yet. Thnx


    if i buy ps4 pro on 3.70 will i be able to update to 4.01 via game disc or it will be fine to stay on 3.70 and wait for the jailbreak of 4.01(i hope jailbreak will work on all firmware <4.01)?

    One big epic fail. Maybe next year.

      Does the Chaitin Tech jailbreak on firmware 4.01 work for the PS4 Slim or PS4 Pro?

      Can a PS4 Pro on firmware 3.7 be upgraded to 4.01?
      What firmware is preinstalled when you buy a PS4 Slim now?
      Can a PS4 Slim be upgraded to firmware 4.01?

    Love first hate!
    Fail0verflow is the first team to JB PS4 using webkit, not Chaitin tech,
    Chinese developers are experts in copying, usually with no credit to original developer.
    Ok no credit, but please stop reporting back to Sony, *** genius!

    Does this mean that 4.05 is still vulnerable to the exploit?

    Maybe those “sitting on 0 day for years” should instead have done something with it.

    Can anyone help me to do Ps4 4.06 version jailbreak?
    I’ll pay the cost.

    wouldn’t it suck if when it was all said and done, they were just telling you not to update to keep psn running smoother for them?
