The new year has just begun in the vast majority of the world and to start 2020, we have some good news for PlayStation 4 owners. In this article, we’ll be looking at the release of a WebKit exploit by Fire30 for the console which supports FW 6.00-6.72.
PS4 News: Fire30 releases WebKit exploit for PlayStation 4 FW 6.00 to 6.72
Yet another WebKit exploit has dropped for the PlayStation 4, this time by Fire30
Compared to most other hacking scenes, the PlayStation 4 scene doesn’t see nearly as much love partly due to the scarcity of hacking solutions for newer firmwares and the low amount of interest in developing homebrew for it even though we got a RetroArch port for it a few days ago. However, from time to time, something on the ‘hacking new firmwares’-front comes up and this time, we have a WebKit exploit by Fire30.
As a result, it’s important to keep in mind that this exploit will not suffice for a full hacking solution but it does give some hope for future PlayStation 4 hacking developments as some interest is still there.
The usual words of advice stay relevant here – Stay on the lowest firmware possible on your PlayStation 4 as that’s how you’ll get the best chance of a hacking solution/jailbreak!
