    Sad. No 5.xx firmware.

      yup this is just similar to PS3 method back in USB jailbreak days where games for higher FW than 3.41 worked with modified EBOOT:)

      5.05 kernel exploit incoming!

      Within the next few weeks there will be a PS4 5.05 full stack release including tools for homebrew development. Some other tools will be dropped as time goes on. Don’t update your <= 5.05 consoles if you care about homebrew. Hope to see cool…

      good point! Maybe the warez-groups need a non-public 5.05 exploit.

    • Fimo

      If a warez group owns a non public 5.xx exploit:
      – Sony wont be able to find the vuln and patch it
      – That group could release those FPKG for 4.05

    So… what about Vita? highly unlikely if it hasn’t been done on the Vita already.

    This is really great news. however,i dont want to celebrate just yet. can we rip games that are more than 4.05?then repackage them?and how? if we can then i will celebrate 🙂
