    • spok says:

      nobody cares about Vita but if PS4 will not be pwned when 5.00 will go live then only option is to keep the PS3 and wait for PS5 hack 🙁

  2. lollypop says:

  3. lollypop says:

  4. Cypherous says:

    So, something not news worthy happened?

    • nope says:

      It’s news worthy in that we might have another chance at a release. Unless this new team is the old team under a new name we will never get anything from them. This new team might be demonstrating a POC of something already known, but maybe this team will release something. The other team is all but guaranteed to not release it.

      B-But Sony is so good at security… there are only several exploits…

  5. lollypop says:

    i have a 3.55 ps4 can i see this 4.05 linux poc ?

    NDAs don’t last forever.

    • Cypherous says:

      Actually some do, they will have signed a contract with sony not to release anything, not sure they want to serve jail time for it 😛

      • anon-san says:

        are you dense? the fact that they signed an NDA doesn’t mean Sony holds them prisoner forever now. it means there was some exchange of money in order for them not to spill some damaging exploits.

        • Cypherous says:

          And they will be contractually required to never release it, which they can agree to and sony can demand it, NDA’s don’t have a default maximum length, if its written that you can never disclose it then you can’t disclose it

        • typical Sony says:

          Known Sony they would have made sure it covered forever…i mean come on this is Sony we are talking about lol

  7. ps4 says:

    ps4 CFW please. not Linux!

    • nope says:

      Be grateful for what you get. Could be like the Xbox1 hacking scene where they don’t have anything. Linux could lead to an eventual full CFW.

    • -_- says:

      go make a CFW and contribute to the scene otherwise don’t request anything and be happy with whatever you get (for free)

    Sometimes, the info we get must be taken as is, “literally”; at other times we must interpret it and read between the lines.

  10. lollypop says:

    can somebody compile me this 3.55-4.05 linux poc plz ?
    in nodejs

    • warfaren says:

      It requires a kernel exploit to run, which is not released to the public. The only public kernel exploit is for 1.76 at the moment.

    • lol says:

      Do people really just read one sentence of articles then scroll down for links….

  11. mten says:

    Can we have a PS4 news about hacking and not be totally disappointed afterwards?

  12. Vitagaming says:

    I can’t believe they burned an exploit using henkaku, Who cares about linux if only a few devs get to keep it to themselves. Meh

    Ps3 in 2006—> Ps3 Hack in 2010
    Ps4 in 2013—> Ps4 hack in 2017????

    This really isn’t news in the least. Sorry to say for those who claim it is, but this junk is on a firmware that’s been patched over already. If everyone thinking this is news thinks this will lead to something bigger than please keep your heads up in cloud 9 and keep dreaming. This won’t promote homebrew on later firmware versions, and never will. Quit fooling yourselves. Sure it’s great linux is running on the ps4 on some obsolete firmware, but it doesn’t mean anything to the firmware version we’re at now.

    PS4 CFW will be released on december 2025.mark my words
