    Why do people use the term “soon” on here for release dates? I know they don’t want to give exact release dates in case they miss it for some reason or another but “soon” has become more of a meme than anything…

    • TehCupcakes

      That’s kind of the point. People say “soon” because it is a meme.

      See here:
      http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/soon
      http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/subcultures/valve (Specifically, “Valve Time”)

      Valve became notorious for saying something is coming “soon” and then it didn’t come until much later. The hacking scene can relate to this well, as exploits showed off do not necessarily materialize into a release as soon as people expect (or ever, sometimes.)

    • Jack Attack

      Soon rarely goes beyond a month unless something major and unforeseen happens. So, it seems perfectly fine to use it when it’s mostly accurate.

      It’s either soon or later because it’s people leaking information before the devs are ready to talk about since most would rather wait until they’re actually ready to release. So, a leak happens and then they have to respond.

      Because they actually have to develop the exploits in their own time for free, they aren’t inclined to give themselves a deadline publicly.

    there’s no reason not to update to 5.05 now then right, especially if you want to be able to play the new god of war?

      currently i will not even buy a PS4 until this “JB” is out along with proofs and list of “jailbreakable” PS4 barcodes and not just bundles…

    Would a 5.05 exploit work as well on a system running 5.07?
    I got my PS4 a few days ago, and I’m interested in Jailbreaking it, however, I’ve searched up the 5.07 version, but I can’t seem to find any info on it. So would a 5.05 exploit be compatible with a 5.07 system?

      No you need to be <- 5.05 for the exploit

      • Spurdo

        Darn. Would a downgrade from 5.07 to 5.05 be possible? I’ve read that downgrades from 5.55 to 4.55 are impossible, but since 5.07 is some weird test version, would a downgrade be possible?

        (woops, i posted the same comment twice)

        • zzhead

          I think not. But with a little luck 5.07 will be exploitable just as 5.05 it’s very unlikely sony patched the yet unreleased exploit in 5.07 since they did not know about it at all, probably.

          • Spurdo

            Probably, I don’t think anyone is actively working on a 5.07 exploit though, since the version is rare and unheard of. Hopefully a 5.05 exploit could work just as well, considering the fact that a 5.07 system ain’t that far off from 5.05.

    I hear ticking time
