    anyone got a link to working 5.05 pup download?
    darksoftware = page of html jibberish = clicking download link does nothing

  2. adol says:

    Hi, just some quick questions: 1. Will installing this void my PS4’s warranty?
    2. And secondly, suppose after installation of this exploit, I decided to go back and install Official firmware again and sign in to sign in to PSN, will my PS4/PSN account get banned since the system was previously hacked/installed with a modded firmware?

  3. Javed says:

    At last.
    But unfortunately I am at 5.5.
    I think I will wait for a year.

    • Vittorio says:

      Yeah, I’m at 5.5 and it sucks.. ): I’ll wait for a concrete way for downgrade..

      • Ala says:

        No way for a downgrade because sony ps4 mother board burns the circuit that is running the previous update and opens a new lightbulbs everytime u install an update the previous one get blown and turn to the next one.

  10. jb says:

    just waiting to get home to try this!!! This will be my first PS4 exploit, do you need to re-run the exploit (setting up the server etc.) everytime you reboot?

  11. Leonardo Lima says:

  13. MidoriAkuma07 says:

    is there a way to host the 5.05 exploit offline like in an android phone? similar to 4.55?

    • wololo says:

      Yes. Android, or esp8266, or al-azif’s tool, or your own server,… that part doesn’t change.

  14. CAPSBOY says:

    God of War Pro I bought new at Wal Mart $400 plus tax,
    was on 4.72, (or was it 4.73) but the God of War game requires update to 5.05 to play

  17. Steve says:

    Tried to install JB.
    Updated to 5.05 by USB-Stick -> everything OK

    Now the problem. To get connected to the JB Websites i need to connect to my Internet.

    But whenever i connect, i immediately get a notofication, that PS4 starts updating the System Software (although i have unchecked all boxes in “Automatic Downloads”!). Tried it 2 times and i immediately cut down the Internetconnection after notification to prevent PS4 from Update.

    Is there anything i can do to solve my problem?

    Would be nice if you guys could share your knowledge.


    PS: I didnt have a earlier JB on my PS4.

  19. Quester123 says:

    I would like to write sth about safety on hscked consoles. I dumped the Ps3, Ps4 and Ps Vita and I‘m very experienced. People use safety tools which are out of time which enlarge the ban risk.
