    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.

      > self-hosted payloads, no external apps or programs required: same as DNS

      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

    So what about firmware 5.xx

  10. RazorX

    i wonder if you could use this to make a similar setup for something like PS3Xploit

  11. Vitagaming

    Nice article thanks I finally decided to pull the trigger on getting a PS4 Pro with 4.55 guyand can’t wait till gets here next week. I’m super happy and going to order the ESP device after work hopefully their is enough support for the pro out there.

    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?

  14. Gr8n00d1e

    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

    “includes stable payloads, no memory errors or reloading pages.”
    odd I have tried multiple way of hosting the payload used my android\Iphone tried to host locally through my PC and even tried multiple online hosts but all of em gives me a memory error since I updated to 4.55 what makes this device so special that all the other ways of doing it fails in comparison

  20. FirstWorldProblems

    I wonder how many people own a ps4 but not and android/iphone/pc…… first world toys i guess, why, because i can, even though most have several other as simple solutions…..

  21. Stephens

    I have a box full of these, my problem now is that my PS4 is at 4.75 buaaaa

  22. lollypop

    Annoucing dubbed ps4-pcsx3 contributed to the great works

  23. dedark
