    Guess we didnt have to wait until march 17th then XD
    seems like we should expect a full 4.55 Jailbreak before the end of this month lol.
    a list of bundles with 4.55 or less would be very nice btw 🙂

    This is the first time in a long time (outside of the PSVita) that I’ve been able to witness the growth of a game console scene. And I have to say, it is a very beautiful and exciting thing.

    I can only hope it will blossom into something as beautiful as HENkaku/TaiHEN/Ensō!

  16. Ravenheart says:

    Is there any kexploit still waiting to drop for us 4.7x users?

    • fluk3 says:

      @Mathieulh on twitter said 4.05, 4.55, 5.01 and 5.05 in that order are the firmwares to stay on if
      you want to hack your ps4 anytime soon. Also, this guy who released the 5.01-5.05 webkit exploit
      is a god! Even if it was unused it started hype for the scene.

    • K2808 says:

      On which Firmware are you? Im on official 5.05 Firmware. You mean you have 5.50 beta`?

  17. Nubiola says:

    Now i m working on a kernel exploit for 5.05 , i expect sony to patch it on 5.50(sure), that s why Alexzzz2007 lunch it before sony relese it.

    • K2808 says:

      I stay on 5.05. Can we be sure that next to the entry point we get a working kernel exploit for 5.05 OFW ?

  18. Startropic1 says:

    Could one use the 5.x usermode exploit to downgrade to 4.55?

  19. kunglao says:

    I have tried the exploit on 5.50, and it still works (kinda).
    The exploit itself still works but when I click on Dump libkernel it says “Not enough free RAM” every time, though dumping libSceWebKit2 works just fine

  20. Funny Videos says:

    Excellent website. Lots of helpful information here. I am sending it to several buddies ans also sharing in delicious. And obviously, thank you to your sweat!

  21. Wolf says:

    Sorry, i have forgotten one think, Sony (for me) are idiots, i realy buy my Games on PSN but Sony Block the peoples who buy the Games on psn …. what a idiot you can be when the only way (If you have a Homebre) that you can only Download Games illegal why Sony Blocks my buying? I have buy for PS4 maybe 400 Games in psn only and If i don’t make a Update or use homebrew i cant Never buy legal Games ? Sorry, but i think that no court will judge me or Arrest me If i us Games illegal why Sony have Block me….. a homebrew is not illegal in EU…..

    • Nadia says:

      Dear friend.
      Do you mean that after you jailbroke your PS4, you were banned after buying a legal copy of a game?
      Getting banned from psn (console or account) is the only thing that users might take into consideration before they try jailbreaking their PS4, at least now since it’s still fresh and there are no mods to prevent you from getting banned. Is that right?
      Ps. I’m not against jailbreak, just thinking…

  22. Carl says:

    So, basically I should avoid updating my ps4 for a year or more, in the off chance someone decides to figure out how to jailbreak 5.05.
