    Today PS4 scene is on fire again 🙂
    Good work all devs!

    • spok says:

      only work confirmed is Specter´s but not this frenchie who just gives “hints” same like in PS3 scene – he either releases or better *** 😉

    • lol321 says:

      this guy is full of ***, since like 5 years

  2. Ryan says:

    What about if I am on 5.53-01, is the exploit fixed in this case?

  3. Maz says:

    I hope this one isn’t patched for a little while. 5.05 makes it easy enough for anyone to get hold of and should do for a good while IMO, then hopefully late in the year/early next something new is available.

  4. Messy says:

    “Oh no someone else is getting attention for his 5.05 release! Talk about me instead!!”

    • Richard says:

      This so much.

      People says “hackers owe you nothing,stop complaining and bothering them” and I agree…but then why they brag on twitter “hey guise I have an exploit for xxx I’m the ***” just for then to go “geez guise,I’m not releasing anything >.< stop bothering me on twitter,you hurt my feelings".

      If you don't want to be bothered about your exploit and use it for research purposes only, then DON'T PUBLISH IT ON TWITTER,if you publish it it's because you're going to release a tool for the final user to take advantage of it…that you can brag about as much as you want.

      Seriously,a lot of hackers are attention whores.

  6. Magusar says:

    I hope it works on 5.53-01 I updated it the other day to play online :/

    • azoreseuropa says:

      Seriously ? I dont care about the online.. never was and never will. Online sucks! I love to play offline so I can watch the ending and be proud!

  7. NuclearGhandi says:

    Guys, don’t party just yet.

    That dude doesn’t like to share. If you think qwertyuiop is bad, this guy is WAY worse.

    NO HE DOESN’T

  9. N says:

    Why bother reporting on this? Did you forget what he did in the ps3 scene? Claims he had anexploit and would release it but never did and admitted to having nothing

  10. Mathieulh is a cuck says:

    Mathieulh never changes. Bragged about having a kernel exploit post 3.55 for the PS3 years ago and didn’t release jack ***. Everyone should ignore him

  11. Whadisay says:

    Mathieulh……. um, ya, cause this guy is well known for being a team player.

  12. Mehran says:

    I just need play god of war 4 just this

  13. lien says:

    What did he do?

  14. Zeke says:

    I know why some hackers don’t share, and Wololo makes a good point about holding exploits back for future use. However “do it yourself” is just not a good response. If you’re the kind of hacker who won’t share their work, maybe not make a point of raising awareness of it on social media either? Rather than getting everyone else’s hopes up. It’s the console scene equivalent of a girl being a cocktease and her telling you if you want to achieve the same result you should do it yourself. Not a perfect metaphor but yeah, that’s what I take away from it.

  15. Rasdf says:

    @wololo, >Mathieulh, known for his contributions to the PSP and PS3 scenes,

    You know he is known for his drama and his attention whoring. He is so full of ***, you even wrote about the kakaroto issue.

  16. Sgdje says:

    He is lier

  17. Axido says:

    Good thing my Pro is on 5.05 and activated. Because it’s unlikely that anyone will ever benefit from those news… even if he’s actually saying the truth.

  18. ayn says:

    This guy never released exploit that he claims to have. Only after it’s leaked/release by others where he’ll claim credit. Don’t give him the attention.

  19. DarkSeeker says:

    This guy never release anything. He is what you call an attention ***. In fact, he probably doesn’t have any exploit, he is lying.

  20. qwertyoruiopz says:

    No he deosn’t

  21. Not Axido says:

    Why do these hackers seem to think keeping their hacks private is the issue? Didn’t the Switch exploit show that is clearly not the case? The community just doesn’t want to hear about your achievements until you actually have something to show. You wouldn’t publish a paper without evidence and sources to back up your work so why on earth would you think its okay to go out to the community and basically say, “Hey, I got the latest and greatest exploit, no I don’t have a reason to tell you this information right now, I just wanted you all to know that I could do it, and I want you to like me because of it.”

    • Bela lugosi says:

      Same here, I’m really disappointed in wololo to give this guy attention. He is just talk, he doesn’t have the collective thinking of sharing what he finds and make the community grow.

    • 25 says:

      Because he’s lying for attention, he did this before years ago and people seem to have forgot.

    • abesd says:

      Becuse Nin don’t go wild with lawsuits like Sony does.

      Nobody wants to be under arrest for useful explloits.

      So only outdated exploits with little to no impact on ps3 piracy scene are allowed.

  22. ConsolesareBetter says:

    Let’s not forget the time he conned people out of money to buy a dev unit and then did F all with it.

    • mathieulh says:

      I never did such a thing, stop spreading lies. In fact I never asked for a single donation in my life.

      • Begbie says:

        Remember when you tweeted Sony directly with which offsets to look for with people on JB’d PS3 playing online ya snitch? Or when FailOverflow kept claiming you were a fraud who took credit for other people’s work?

  23. ayn says:

    Because Sony sued Goehot. These guys don’t want to get on Sony’s bad side but they also want the fame so they don’t release things anonymously. Look at some of the biggest achievements of the PS3 scene after Geohot got sued, lv0 key is released anonymously. The PSV jailbreak was leaked anonymously. The Nintendo Switch bootrom hack was leaked anonymously. Fail0verflow would’ve never released the hack even after they disclosed to Nintendo. We can’t expect these devs to release these hacks publically (due to the possiblity of getting sued) but they also want fame which excluded the possiblity of them releasing it anonymously.

  24. mathieulh says:

    Look. it’s real. However, there will be a price. $14.99 through paypal for code to unlock.

    • Andrea says:

      Ok, when I can buy your product?

    • dsasa says:

    • bel3atar says:

    • FreakAlcehmist says:

      At least your seance of humor is still kicking.

  25. bel3atar says:

    am I the only waking making a difference beween “hinting he likely has access to a 5.53 Kernel exploit” and “states he has a 5.53 Kernel exploit”?
    English isn’t my first language though

  27. Hunter128 says:

    really sick of all the advertisers and blaggers bragging i got this cfw,kernel,kexploit if you had anything and really cared about opensource freedoms and free of console you would be sharing i think this is all *** and am currently tripping the ps4 board and am going to find all the access i can and publish it as i find it so others can build and help i started in the mid to late 80s and find millenial generation fame cravers and they have no love of freedom of knowledge when i first started in math (AKA)Coding if you have something publish it if not fock off and go and blow smoke up you own *** newbs
