Thanks to the payloads being updated, Al Azif states that “most use cases” of hacked PlayStation 4 consoles will be covered meaning that when jailbroken, FW 6.72 will give a similar degree of usability as FW 5.05 in some areas together with the ability to play many more games!
The list of payloads being updated to work with FW 6.72
The payloads that have been updated to work with FW 6.72 and which are available for download include:
App2USB – originally developed by ‘stooged’
Backup – originally developed by ‘stooged’
Disable Updates – by Al Azif
Among the payloads ported, we find FTP which is infinitely useful as it lets you copy stuff to your console wirelessly!
Disc Dumper – originally developed by ‘xvortex’
This allows you to dump PS4 disc & PSN games
Enable Browser – by Al Azif
Enable Updates – by Al Azif
Fan Threshold – by Al Azif
FTP – originally developed by ‘xvortex’
Allows you to copy stuff over a LAN
History Blocker – originally developed by ‘stooged’
Kernel Dumper – originally developed by ‘eversion’
Restore – originally developed by ‘stooged’
RIF Renamer – by Al Azif
Kernel Clock – by Al Azif, this needs two missing offsets to work
It is important to state that the payloads haven’t been tested so some may not work properly when a FW 6.72 jailbreak is released.
On a concluding note, it is important to remember that there is no jailbreak for FW 6.72 yet despite it being fully exploited (usermode [Webkit] + kernel exploits are available). As a result, if your PlayStation 4 is currently on FW 5.05, it is recommended to stay there if you care about your PlayStation 4 being hacked.
If you want to see SpecterDev working on his upcoming PlayStation 4 jailbreak while also learning something about exploiting the console in the process, you may check out his Twitch channel on which he frequently does live streams.
I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.
