    Yes, I am first. But that’s not a big deal.

    first of all … is it a usb uart module ?
    ifso it could lead to a modchip
    instead a wifi vita dongle dubbed cobra

    I see no point in buying this.

    – extremely low cost hardware: DNS cost 0$ to the user… Better.
    – available worldwide: same as DNS
    – ability to run 24/7: same as DNS
    – self-hosted payloads, no external apps or programs required: same as DNS
    – includes stable payloads, no memory errors or reloads: reloads and memory errors don’t depends by the source, but by the exploits… I got memory errors even with my localhosts (steamlink, pc, phone)…. So same as DNS.
    – completely block all updates: same as DNS
    – no need for custom dns server or settings: oh …. What a big bother insert 12 digits -.-“.
    – easy to program and update via usb: DNS doesn’t need to be programmed or updated
    – very low power consumption: DNS got 0 power consumption.

    So, except for people living in the fourth world without an internet connection, this is basically useless.

      I’m amazed at how clueless you are

    • Gmbox

      I totally agree with you, completely useless.

      Oh so you can host files on a DNS server? Are you talking about the upcoming DNS 2.0? Please elaborate with your immeasurable knowledge about DNS. /s

  9. Erfan

  10. RazorX

    its posible use a Router with Openwrt + apache.?

    • Niet

      I would suggest lighttpd instead of apache, but yeah, you simply need to host a webpage and few KB of Javascript. And on Openwrt you have dnmasq out of the box, so you can hijack Sony URLs and use the “open manual” way to launch the exploit…

    If your a noob to the development scene, would you recommend this, or is it simple to figure out with a little research?

    Looking forward to ESP32 Version

  15. Killa

    Is the PS4 Pro worth it for hacking and Homebrews? or is the Slim enough for this purpose
