    Guess I won’t bother with getting a PS4 anytime soon. Yay drama.

  2. blackjack4it says:

    I bought a Ps4 chassis C at 2.51 fw and switched it off waiting for this moment. Finally!

  3. Rolenzo says:

    I delayed my Christmas until Hykem releases his Wiiu exploit. Lonely.

    I’m a developer myself and if such a thing happened to me, irrespective of the logic of doing it, it will be the last thing that community every see of me….
    As much as I’d love an exploit, I’d rather it came with a developer that knows what he’s doing, because he will probably be an important person with the subsequent community development.

  5. Joao paulo says:

    I want to know and Ps4 jailbreak will release or not?

  6. A says:

    Probably not first

    I found this ?

  8. Cturt says:

    9/11 Leak was an inside job.

  9. KronosXLI says:

    “This release probably doesn’t change much who’s going to work on exploiting the PSP in the foreseeable future.” – Damn, you people are way too slow. lol

  10. mr first says:

    First!! I like to thank myself, my laptop and my isp for getting me this far to receive the first trophy

  11. mr first says:

    First, I like to firstly thank myself, my laptop for lettng me view this site and my isp for giving me speeds fast enough to post here and get the first trophy

  12. yourdad says:

    Another drama…. Exploit found.. Then not interested.. Then leaked.. … Some more exploit. blah blah… Ya, april fool is coming up

  13. lol says:

    now everyone can be happy lol

  14. lol says:

    leaks are good for devs which not in console-hacker’s chain-of-trust who dying to get their hand to code for their lovely consoles.

  15. Danny says:

    Interesting even to im a advanced programmer ( not a pro ) i’ll study this with the explanation of c turt sorry for my bad english

  16. mike says:

    can i run pirated games with this?

  17. Jefphar says:

    “This release probably doesn’t change much who’s going to work on exploiting the PSP in the foreseeable future” I think this is a typo it must be PS4. Must have been PS Vita much better

  18. GREAFOX says:

    Thank you Wololo, you’re great ! Good works I love you.

    Excuse my english, I’me beginner ^^

  19. meysam25 says:

    exiting news !

  20. percy says:

    I’m on firmware 3.15, and I think most of us so not so exciting. news.

    • Loki says:

      Unless you have 2 ps4’s One of which is still in it’s nice clean new box with firmware 1.76…….

    • nope says:

      Sucks for you, I have two consoles. One on 3.15, one on 1.76. You can have one too, it’s just you missed your window to buy one at a somewhat reasonable price

    • allbits says:

      That’s an important thing to note. The correlation between hack/development quality and number of users is quite clear to me. I hope that in the future new exploits will surface because many which are active in ps4 hacking actually have a console to work with.

      For me it’s not really economically or joy-givingly justifiable at this time to get a old console at a hefty price.

  21. JB says:

    And the Jailbreak that is good and that everyone desire… Nothing. Sounds like the ps4 scene never will appear for real. Many people is tired of this.

    • nope says:

      What are you talking about? With this release the exact opposite thing will happen. Now it can be a community effort from everyone who knows what they’re doing.

      • JB says:

        I hope you right. Is about time to appear something good for the end users.

        • allbits says:

          What? About time? Sorry but (not sorry) who the heck are you to demand this? This is mainly by and for enthusiast.

  22. tightflubbrtorso says:

    Well isnt your weewee as hard as a corn lol!

  23. DS_Marine says:

    Years come and go, leakers always leak.
    One doesn’t just “grab passwords from several well known hackers of the PS4 scene”. Meaning, are all the pro PS4 hackers idiots?
    There isn’t a store where they keep all their passwords togheter right?
    Just sayin’, not shooting the messenger…

    • wololo says:

      The problem is it only takes 1 person with a weak password to unravel lots of things. In that case, people seem to think the hacker had access to all passwords from thousands of people on psx-place.com and ps3hax.net, and some hackers were in that list. Some of them might have used similar passwords on scene sites and github…

  24. Hito says:

    My git has a public exploit online since the end of January. It’s just that nobody looked at the right branch / repo 🙂

    […] PS4 Hacking scene has made significant progress so far in 2016 (sometimes in a painful way), and it is in theory possible to run native hacks as well as Linux on your PS4 today, assuming […]
