    Sad. No 5.xx firmware.

      yup this is just similar to PS3 method back in USB jailbreak days where games for higher FW than 3.41 worked with modified EBOOT:)

      5.05 kernel exploit incoming!

      Within the next few weeks there will be a PS4 5.05 full stack release including tools for homebrew development. Some other tools will be dropped as time goes on. Don’t update your <= 5.05 consoles if you care about homebrew. Hope to see cool…

    how to dump games with out install

    • sosofah says:

      good point! Maybe the warez-groups need a non-public 5.05 exploit.

    • Fimo says:

      If a warez group owns a non public 5.xx exploit:
      – Sony wont be able to find the vuln and patch it
      – That group could release those FPKG for 4.05

    So… what about Vita? highly unlikely if it hasn’t been done on the Vita already.

  9. FFTW says:

    This is really great news. however,i dont want to celebrate just yet. can we rip games that are more than 4.05?then repackage them?and how? if we can then i will celebrate 🙂

  10. ple2man says:
