    Hi, just some quick questions: 1. Will installing this void my PS4’s warranty?
    2. And secondly, suppose after installation of this exploit, I decided to go back and install Official firmware again and sign in to sign in to PSN, will my PS4/PSN account get banned since the system was previously hacked/installed with a modded firmware?

    At last.
    But unfortunately I am at 5.5.
    I think I will wait for a year.

    • Vittorio

      Yeah, I’m at 5.5 and it sucks.. ): I’ll wait for a concrete way for downgrade..

      • Ala

        No way for a downgrade because sony ps4 mother board burns the circuit that is running the previous update and opens a new lightbulbs everytime u install an update the previous one get blown and turn to the next one.

  10. jb

    just waiting to get home to try this!!! This will be my first PS4 exploit, do you need to re-run the exploit (setting up the server etc.) everytime you reboot?

  11. Leonardo Lima

  13. MidoriAkuma07

    is there a way to host the 5.05 exploit offline like in an android phone? similar to 4.55?

    • wololo

      Yes. Android, or esp8266, or al-azif’s tool, or your own server,… that part doesn’t change.


    Awesome guys .. I got it running but after I install a pkg and run it I cant get past the start game screen

    God of War Pro I bought new at Wal Mart $400 plus tax,
    was on 4.72, (or was it 4.73) but the God of War game requires update to 5.05 to play

    Tried to install JB.
    Updated to 5.05 by USB-Stick -> everything OK

    Now the problem. To get connected to the JB Websites i need to connect to my Internet.

    But whenever i connect, i immediately get a notofication, that PS4 starts updating the System Software (although i have unchecked all boxes in “Automatic Downloads”!). Tried it 2 times and i immediately cut down the Internetconnection after notification to prevent PS4 from Update.

    Is there anything i can do to solve my problem?

    Would be nice if you guys could share your knowledge.


    PS: I didnt have a earlier JB on my PS4.

  19. Quester123

    I would like to write sth about safety on hscked consoles. I dumped the Ps3, Ps4 and Ps Vita and I‘m very experienced. People use safety tools which are out of time which enlarge the ban risk.
