    owh ,this seems to complicated for me

  2. andoryuu3 says:

    Thank you for recommending a cross platform tool for this guide. I primarily use macOS, but it’s unavoidable that I need windows from time to time. But the less I need to switch over to windows or run a virtual machine, the better 🙂

    hello guys I’m on the 3.55 now for many years and I would not make the mistake to upgrade to 4.05 and then find myself a news that there is something more huge on ofw less than 4.05, so my questions are:
    1-update and ambitious about this exploit? What can I really do?
    2-can I install the pkg demo games? as ?
    3- I read that there is a fake section saved what is it? can I put a ps4 save for another account on mine? .

    be careful, the new version uses python 3 !

    Thank you for this tutorial 🙂
    With that ps4-exploit-host now I have full FTP access !

    Now I can see the 5.03 downloaded PUP (+ 3 other files) in the “upload” folder.
    I would like than my ps4 stops to ask me if I want to update everytime I boot… some one has a (tested) way to clean it ?
    Delete PS4UPDATE.PUP ? The 4 files ?

    10.255.255.255 is a reserved address and isn’t routable (Normally) so I thought it’d work if the internet was disconnected as it can never resolve even when connected to the WAN. I’ll add a arg to disable that check or figure out what’s going on.

    Thanks for the guide!
    Although, Im having trouble on Ubuntu… By using terminal, it says my port 53 is already being used. (ERROR: Could not start server, is another program on udp:53?)
    Can I use another port for it?
    Thanks in advance!

    • RodPin says:

      PS: By using lsof -i :53, it says systemd-resolve is using this port.
      “COMMAND PID USER FD TYPE DEVICE SIZE/OFF NODE NAME
      systemd-r 789 systemd-resolve 16u IPv4 22649 0t0 UDP localhost:domain “

    • Gumi says:

      1 disable dns in /etc/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.conf (comment out dns) & restart. Maybe I also run: disable sudo systemctl disable systemd-resolved.service – i dont remeber now.
      2 if you want to have internet (dns) forward outgoing tcp&udp port 53 to router ip:53 using iptables rules

      • RodPin says:

        THANKS A LOT!!! Now it’s working!

        I followed this guide “https://askubuntu.com/questions/907246/how-to-disable-systemd-resolved-in-ubuntu”, but you showed me the way. Thanks Gumi.

    What will happen if I run the debug setting payload then update to 5.03 ? will it stay ?

  10. kokaro says:

    Anyone who can confirm if it worked?

  11. Matt Jones says:

    I set the IP address to automatically configure, however when I manually put in the DNS which I receive from the tool (also for some reason the IP I receive from the tool is surrounded by nonsense symbols), it won’t work! It gets the IP and recognizes the network but the internet test fails!

  12. TimeWaster says:

    Are there still ps4 pro bundles out there with a fw below or at max 4.05?

  13. anagia says:

    start.py
    cywing nc -w 200 192.168.1.133 9020 < ftpp.bin
    ftp filezilla
    full access

    to upload payload same way 1 bye one

  14. Mock says:

    Advise for using the ps4-exploit-host-v0.3.1, install the newest Python X64 version if you are on Windows 10. I never got the 2.7 version working, but the newest worked straight away

  17. poiagoboy says:

    I keep on getting told that internet connection failed, anyone else having this issue?

  18. seba says:

    when my ps4 was about to run the exploit went out: V What did I do wrong?

  19. Shadownet says:

    So.. With this method, can I run copied game at my PS4 console ??

  20. Adriani says:

    With PS4 4.05 Kernel Exploit is it possible to play the backups that are being made available? I’m a bit confused, I see some PKG playing videos of games even being initialized.

  21. John Doe says:

    Great tutorial, worked first time

  22. Sam says:

    My debug settings disappear once I restart my console, is this normal?

  23. junior says:

    working 5.05?

  24. john says:

    what can i do with this ?

  25. josh says:

    this tutorial needs an update . the exploit tool is on another version, much newer version and everything is different. the new tool doesnt have start.py file and many other things.

  26. Maverick says:

    Well ive kept my ps4 on 3.11fw and wont be updating to 4.05 just yet ill wait for a full cfw like the ps3

  27. tooretoo42 says:

    thanks for all your tutos !!!
    just for info, there’s no need to change “start.py” in a pure network
    just fill out the default gateway with any ip on your host 🙂

  28. Crispy81 says:

    I cannot get this to work on Windows 10. Tried shutting down running apps.

    “ERROR: Could not start the server, is another program on udp:53?”

    I’d appreciate any suggestions, if anyone got the same issue and managed to sort it.
