    updated to 4.55. waiting for CFW.

    • spok

      i do it otherwise like with PS3 – first CFW at least for 5.x and then i will finally buy latest version of PS4 instead of one year old bundle…

      • nebu_187

        Could become very expensive to buy the ”right firmware” on the moment of a CFW release. Better to buy a PS4 and let it wait on low firmware

        • spok

          yup cause for some reason these “hackers” always release it after half year or more after they anounce it for e-fame 🙁

            Well, most is either for self or public acknowledgement of one’s own abilities… And there is nothing wrong with that, the world’s people want all forms of it. Some, like the majority, like such recognition in cash/wage.

            You, me and all else is second. Those who receive naught but goods shall not give ****. 🙂

    “with some reporting some crashes or having to try the payload a couple times”
    … other people said there is some lag with some games (HZD…)
    I’ll stay on 4.05 untill it will be fixed.

  4. josemi

  5. Durk

    Not sure if I should wait or not. I have a launch PS4 waiting to be used for stuff like this.

  6. ple2man

    I think this is a dangerous device ban. Is there a way to avoid ban while exploiting it?

  7. Oldmanrick

    Finally… !!! you guys are the best!!!

  8. rit

    Holyy Grial!! Yessss. for now to wait for a more stable launch.

  9. Abol

    Someone release the 5.0 exploit ffs

  10. Vincent

    I just got my hands on a PS4 Pro with 4.55. How do I use this exploit, if I can’t launch my browser without signing in to PS Network? Can I sign in to PS network with firmware 4.55?

    @Daniel ROT IN heck!!

  12. Lollypop

    Is there homebrew to come with iT?

  13. Pitatesthe best

    This is such great news for people who don’t want to pay for games anymore. I want to download all PS4 games that were made. Will need to get a bigger hard drive for all this pirating.

  14. Patagero

    Im downgrading to 4.55.

  15. second

  17. Joni

    Wahhho its the same on…..

  18. Vic-20

    Nice thanks to all involved

    Even if they were to release a cfw for the latest version, I would ignore it. I am far too invested in the Playstation ecosystem to risk it. I’d rather they focus on Switch hacking at this point and release something for 4.1, not invested in the ecosystem there, plus I’d rather give the middle finger to Nintendo because their games almost never go on sale or get a price cut.

    On 4.07 here, I feel like using the 4.07 payload if 4.55 is less stable as mentionned.
    I’ll wait a couple of days to see how stable things looks then will go for it for sure !

    Can’t wait for a theme plugin to show up !

  22. TheLastOne

    freaking last, yay!!!!

  23. Nanasemaru94

    Hope the guide is very noob friendly because I never jailbreak the 4.05 (since I’m stuck at ofw 4.50)

  24. King BOB

    Hey guys. Great news. I have a 4.07 PS4 i my cupboard. Whoop Whoop

    Can anyone give an indication to if there is a possibility to earn trophies with these back ups? I used to use a flash drive with my Xbox 360 RGH years ago and I would move from console to console. Could this be possible? has anyone tried it?

  25. Crispy81

    Damn, thought this might work on my 4.73 system, but alas no. Hopefully it won’t be long.

    I want an opinion.. I have found a used ps4 with firmware 4.07. It has some scracthes on top right corner. Probably 35% of the body are scratched. With one controller and 3 cds, those are 1. The last of us 2. Drive Club 3. Far cry 4. The console has no box. The seller want to sell it 210$. Will it worth it if i buy the ps4?

    Sorry for my bad english

  27. tenow

    Had 4.07, updated to 4.55 from softpedia and hacked with DNS method. Running backups flawlessly

  28. lollypop

    Hi everyone, I was able to install one game, but I have a question. It is necessary to do al the process and internet connection to be able to play a installed game (’cause I tried to play online and i couldnt). The are risks to play with the console connected to internet? Like bans or autoupdate?

    I’m very lucky, I order a used PS4 PRO ( model CUH-7016B) from amazon and It’s came with the fw 4.55 :D:D:D Happy!

  31. hosein

  32. hosein
