    The Specter’s exploit doesn’t have any problem with FTP payload. Just that IDC’s exploit jailbreaks = grands full FTP access

      well FTP Blackbox was the first homebrew along with a backup manager for PS3 however there is nothing to transfer on PS4 for now:)

    Small nitpick, FTP default port is 21 not 20…

    Any way to delete the errors log to prevent sony peeking at them?
    Since debug menu was activated, I’ve got the errors related to it logged in the errors section, this could be a bad thing.

    Just tried this and it scared the living daylights out of me after I sent the payload and my PS4 suddenly turned itself OFF!!!

    Left it a while said a prayer and turned it ON, pheewww…. everything seems to be OK.

    when I send the ftp payload, my PS4 shows “not enough memory space” and I can not get FTP access.

    Would a 4.05 payload alsof work in a 3.55 webkit?

    Is there a tutorial compiling FTP payload?

    Just one note on IDC’s exploit… Unlike Specterdev, IDC’s will hang and not load any confirmation page on your browser, and that’s correct. When your browsr hangs, it will be the time to send the payload.
