    This actually looks interesting since they were willing to share it like a community should without sjw, secretive v.i.p. and drama ***. First worthy thing since eons. The only way progress will be made is if every *find* is shared so that everyone can poke at it. The legal stuff doesn’t matter since Sony will patch it easily with the next update/revision like always anyway and people will be locked out of online play and newer firmware games like always. I don’t know why they make such a drama too.

      I’m confused, “4.01 work?”
      Work? Work what exactly?
      (Not being rude but I’m noob)

      What are any of the posters confirming working?

      Just asking what has been achieved…

        what is released is the webkit exploit which allows you to try and install a kernal exploit there is a working kernal exploit which has not been released. This exploit is 0 day and has been confirmed working on all firmwares. Right now we only have a webkit to try and use that exploit up till 4.07. To install the kernal exploit on higher firmwares will require a new webkit exploit to be found. Hope this helps. Basically sit tight. What you are looking for is highest firmware possible that will work with both hacks. Remains to be seen but that might be 4.50….

    looks like 3.11 isn’t part of the upgrade, will wait abit longer before pushing another flash drive update
