    i love and hate seeing stuff like this given my ps4 is on 5.01 lol

    So thats why my ps4 didint load hen, when i intendet to.. they removed 4.05 payloads… i am not updating to 4.55, because there is no major difference in my opinion…. by the way, good that things are moving on.

  3. Imconfused says:

    So should the scene boycott this because its a mod-chip that could make some one else money, should we demand a software solution? Why cant they use an existing product available to the public, like a $10 arm dev board? I am not even sure why this needs new hardware developed other than to make this proprietary? How is this different from what team Executor is doing for the switch?

    PS. I do think this is awesome, and many thanks to the dev for the hard work this takes to pull off. But I am curious why there is so much hate on the switch side and no criticism at all for the PS4 side?

      I think ,that you don’t need to boycott nothing. Just build your own software hack and you are good to go.And if you can’t, stop complaining

      “…he intends to open source all of the information once done.” nuff said. Granted I don’t know if team executor has made any announcements about opening up their work, but I personally don’t see any reason to hate a dev for making $$$ out of making processes more convenient.

      He’s not taking away anything, only providing a simpler option… of course, that is assuming that he does go through with actually opening up the code.

      I don’t know how you read this article but it says, that this will be 100% open source solution. When this will release, you will be able to build your own modchip. And this is only for Al-Azif’s version, other versions readily available for esp8266, which is indeed a $10 developer board.

    • blahblah says:

      It’s not a new hardware. It’s a software for existing ESP8266 boards that are broadly available for a few bucks AND the article clearly says that the code will be open sourced.

    • rhodderz says:

      Your missing the “open source all of the information once done” part which executor dont do and also 0day stuff that can affect others. There is a wololo post about it on here

    4.73 needs some love….

  5. ano says:

    Please use “modchip” with quotes like Al-azif did.
    This is not a real modchip.

  6. rhodderz says:

    Trying to work out what his “secret feature is” which i think might be a rubber ducky style where you press the button and it enumerates controller input to “autoload” the exloit

  7. Relys says:

    If it supports Bluetooth it’s probably based in the ESP32, not the ESP8266.

  8. 5u770n says:

    i already have SD card support on my esp8266 exploit server 🙂
    Looking forward to seeing this project though, i was planning on porting it all to esp32 but think i’ll hang back now

  9. The next time I read a blog, I hope that it doesnt disappoint me as much as this one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read, but I actually thought youd have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you werent too busy looking for attention.
