    Awww yissss, let the games begin

  2. Chara Chan says:

    ps4 version of henkaku lol

  3. jhiean says:

    tested and it works on 3.15 OFW

  4. The Z says:

    This is great that means we can now steal and pirate PS4 games. Yay!!!

    • facepalm says:

      You need a facepalm, this means nothing yet, you have a long wait still if all u care about is pirating ps4 games lol

    • Guilherme says:

      you can steal ps4 games since release. Pirating is not stealing though, and it’s still not possible, sry bout that

  5. alex says:

    please work on 4.50 :((((( external hard drive and boost mode ((((

  6. Ondskan says:

    Works on 3.50

  7. 666 says:

    been waiting for this for some time now, i might have a poke at GTA:V at some point in the future

  8. Beanzy says:

    Works on 4.07 🙂

  9. Iroquois Pliskin says:

    Does this work for the PS4 Pro too with the appropriate FW?

  10. Salar says:

    No Worry there , it will surely release and there will be new exploit for 4.50 after wards , because the ability to mount hard drive and etc will some how temper with the hackers mood to try to digg more on the current latest firmware , for now we dont know anything about the tools or other stuff but we have to wait and give it more time , perhaps some thing new will come or not , who knows
    all i can do is thanking everyable body in the scene doing something for people or for their own good , research is research

  11. anonym says:

    This is fake, wololo you decided too soon, this exploit not going anywhere, just another useless exploit…Psxhax is officially death.

    • Iroquois Pliskin says:

      Why has Wololo been reporting on false exploits as of lately?

      • Sweeper says:

        … first of all its not an exploit from fakers(pshax) so shut your mounth ^^
        second.. If you don’t know about “what is this exploit exactly doing” Shut your mouth >.< !

        for resentful idiots…

    • Saul Martinez says:

      This isn’t fake. Luca is known for hacking, he even released jailbreaks for iOS when nobody else could. Go to his Twitter and you’ll see that he’s a genius and deserves the fame.

  12. bill says:

    Fake. Basically reading address space off stack.

  13. Seanp2500 says:

    looked slightly different for me. Not sure why people assuming fake same tactic as wii u and switch and vita hacks…

  14. muja says:

    ps4 4.01 not soppurt?please

  15. Dade says:

    How do you test this? when I go to the internet browser on my ps4 pro with fw 4.00 it tells me to update my system software. Have tried using PsProxy, but doesnt work?

    • dbaaz says:

      If you go to settings and access the user guide, you can access the web browser, but you cannot type any url’s in the address bar. But, if you can find a link on the Sony website that leads to Google (Hint: google+ link), you can search for this website and access it.

      • PlaGeRaN says:

        Thank you for the tip, I’m going to test this tonight. Just wasn’t sure what would happen once I’m online.
        I just hope I don’t sit with the same issue here.

        Tip to all: Disable Automatic Updates in your settings if you need to go online, or the next time you power up your device will be updated.

      • warfaren says:

        You can set up your own DNS server that redirects the Sony online manual page to any other server, too. That will definitely work (I use that system myself) even if there is no links that will take you outside the manual.

      • Dade says:

        Tried that… It doesn’t work. Was removed my Sony.

  16. Ant says:

    Makes no difference… this is just userland, I have a PS4 on fw 1.76. For a year now, no progress has been made

    • Saul Martinez says:

      No progress has been made because barely any devs have 1.76 consoles. They also cost like $700 which you can buy 2 ps4s with. He also has a kernel exploit not sure if he has read/write though.

  17. Muja says:

    Message exploit succeed my ps4 of 4.01,a working?

  18. Goloho says:

    This news brings me makes me very happy.

  19. Lee says:

    Does this work for PS4 Pro? I still have mine sitting in the shelf with 3.70

  20. Tembelisimo says:

    and how can i check on 4.00fw? when when i start the browser, it asking me for update…

    • Bill says:

      go in through support pages. Click on google login. On bottom of page is google help. Click that to get in to google search.

      • Roelof says:

        I tried that…looks like it was removed. When i click on support, those links dont pop up anymore

  21. Fimo says:

    As exciting as all the wekbit exploits on 2.xx & 3.xx
    Sadly the hardest part is the kernel exploit and only the Chaitin Team and Marcan from FOF know how to do it.

    PS: their kernel exploit has been patched on 4.07, so any webkit exploits working on FW > 4.07 may be useless.

    • Fate says:

      Oh No! Im o 4.07 So cant it be solved ? 🙁

      • Fimo says:

        you’re sc***

      • Fimo says:

        Nobody really knows.
        We could learn a lot with Chaitin in only 2 weeks (13-14 april)… wait 🙂
        The last public Sony PS4 jailbreak was targeting to version 1.76, which has been released more than two years. As more mitigation is introduced, PS4 jailbreaking is much more challenging. In GeekPWN 2016, I have demonstrated booting a Linux system on latest PS4 console by exploiting multiple vulnerabilities through webkit to kernel. In this talk, I’d like to share some technique details about PS4 hacking.

  22. Bob says:

    Before anyone gets too hyped this exact thing already happened with 3.55, it’s even stated in the article. Nothing came from that and I don’t see why it would be different this time

    • XD says:

      Not much different, this release just made it for sony to sell more console only… Finally people still look at the console box sit at the corner for year by year..

  23. Reymon says:

    this time will be different cause we have fate!

  24. Tom says:

    another useless false hope.

  25. bill says:

    bill says:
    linux loader

  26. Deadsh0t says:

    *The ps4 3.55 also has a exploit but hasnt been fully hacked *
    Yeah lel thats because it is dropped and noone is researching the full potential of rop code execution

  27. multiverse says:

    ofc this comes out a day after my stupid brother updates my ps4 to 4.55 *** it

  28. DJPlace says:

    damn i want to play roms on my PS4 one word i got to say sony.


  29. Tu_Matador says:

    I do not have the session started on my ps4, so I can not prove the exploit, you *** ***

  30. marty says:

    Let’s load up ps4-kexec and launch Linux!!

  31. Nomad says:

    I want to jailbreak my PS4 to get unlimited money in GTA, but I find a huge money glitch recently and updated to 4.50, damn!

  32. Fimo says:

    The folowing kexploit (= 4.06 Jailbreak) has even been confirmed by Cturt

  33. Bob says:

    4.07 and above is non-exploitable.

  34. Kris says:

    I’ve been following for the last few months. I updated to 4.50 anyway. I figured this time around I’d use ps+ and try playing online…
