        Hey I have a crack PS4 v 5.05 and my dns value has become
        And my internet connection does not failed, what to do now

  1. windhazard

    The last pic in the post confirmed his newly acquired kernel exploit on 5.50. That means he currently owns another kexploit to play with in future firmwares, so the patched one should be released anytime soon.

  2. Skypirate

    Blah blah first?

  3. Toto

    And the reason for not releasing patched kernel exploit is… Uh, no reason to hide it anymore right?

    • spok

      yup same old PS4 scene – keep current FW jailbreak private until it is patched and then wait year or so until all new PS4s are updated…

  4. percy

    now that the kexploit is patched in 5.50 there is no point for qwerty to not share it with us 5.05 users, so lets all wait patiently for master qwerty to released it in public. 🙂

    • Smart Man

      Actually this guy gets off on teasing people, so you’re better off waiting for some anon to release anything worthwhile.

  5. Et-Bilu

    esqueçam que nao vai ter desbloqueio 5xx.
    unico desbloqueio sera aternamente 4.55.

  6. dunno

    “This automatically implies that he is in possession of a kernel exploit that apparently works up to firmware 5.05 included”

    Meaning? so 5.05 has a chance to be jailbreakable? in a future

    • whteva

      It has been very strongly hinted at (maybe even explicitly stated) several times, so yes it has a very strong chance of a JB. When that might happen is another question, of course you get the usual “could be a week, could be never” response when you ask.

  7. Tyler Guy

    While he never implicitly stated he would release the patched kernel exploit. It would be pretty ridiculous not to seeing as it will never be useful again in future firmware versions.

    • SocraticBliss

      not if the exploit will affect other devices and is still 0day on them

      • Tyler Guy

        It was patched in Webkit. so anything ever that gets that commit will be patched, its no longer 0day for anything that hasn’t already reached EOL.

  8. kbear

    Yeah the last picture looks a lot like a kexploit because it seems to be doing a lot more after showing the webkit exploit result. I wonder, if he said the OLD kexploit was fixed, maybe he found a new one?

    • Tyler Guy

      Yes his Day0 exlpoit has been patched, as he predicted. Should see a 5.05 release sometime soon. There is literally no reason to keep it under wraps anymore.

  9. Norikoteiko

    The last pic prices that he has a working webkit exploit for 5.50 and that he’s ready to look for a kernel exploit

    In all the time I’ve been on this site I’ve never seen you directly insult your base. “Get it through my hard skull? No problem, ill hop over to another scene site

  11. Dheez

    Comments opposed to wololo calling us stupid apparently get removed. I screenshotted mine so ill post it on Twitter lol. Noone needs to be called stupid, and calling you out gets censored? Lame stuff man. Hopefully you edit the article, you sound condescending

    • Moondemon

      Did it occur to you that he was not directly talking to you but to annoying people who ask the same known stuff over and over again? If you don’t have a hard skull as you imply, maybe you could work on getting a slightly harder skin as to not be offended so easily. Also, I still see your first comment so it obviously was not deleted.

  12. x

    Well thanks for insulting me was a fan of the site for a long time but i guess i am will switch to pshax forever now

  13. Dheez

    Moondemon he makes no clarification there, and i simply stated that it was wrong to do. If you cant handle that feel free to ignore my post. It disappeared and came back, not sure if a glitch or what happened there. Generally one avoids insulting the reader, as it is the reader that generates traffic to the site.

    • Moondemon

      You did not “simply state” it, you acted like a kid who got scolded. Also, I feel like I did “handle your post” just fine, but hey, we know now that you are easily offended so maybe my “handling” of your post was too much for you and you feel the need to tell me not to reply to any comment? Or just not to your comments? Oh well 🙂

  14. kbear

    I’m laughing at these guys complaining and saying they’ll go use some other website, and then staying here for HOURS later, still complaining. Didn’t you leave? lol
