ESP8266 support updated for 5.05 PS4 Jailbreak
If you don’t know yet what the ESP8266 is yet, check out my article on that cool device here. Long story short, it’s a $5 wifi-enabled device that lets you run the PS4 exploit locally. It works great to run webkit exploits for your favorite console, in particular if you don’t want to keep the console online.
Multiple developers are maintaining some pretty useful binaries for the device in order to let us run the latest exploits on our PS4.
Today, with the release of the PS4 5.05 exploit, we’re seeing a few great updates for the device. C0d3m4st4 has updated his binaries of the ESP8266 (ESP8266ExploitHost) to support exploit 5.05. RetroGamer_74 also has updated his github with support for 5.05.
Specific tools are required to flash the binaries to the ESP8266 device, and I won’t go into details here (the readme files give some direction). Once properly flashed, the ESP8266 will act as a “fake” Wifi router (to which you will need to connect the PS4) which only serves the PS4 exploit.
