I'm a girl that's liked technology from day 1. Mostly interested in the PSVita/PSP scene but I've always modded my stuff when it's possible, that is :)Contact me via DM at @KawaiiAuroraA on Twitter if you have any questions/concerns about my articles or if you have any article requests.

    YAhooo Early Xmas To All of Us Genius

    • spok says:

      Xmas would be a proper CFW or latest 8.xx Hen so we could finally try PSN even with a risk of ban same like it was possible with PS3 while PS5 is out now

  2. Sky says:

    Nice, *open my PS4*, *see firmware 7.52*
    Guess I will wait some more.

    • Bel says:

      stop crying, if you wanted cfw then you wouldn’t update

      • Spec says:

        you’re aware some of us have friends, yeah? that we play games with? and maybe don’t have the privilege of multiple systems?
        7.52 isn’t exactly new either, mate.

        • Sky says:

          My Pro is on 7.52, I have a slim that is on 5.05 so I am good. Anyone can afford a second ps4 really they are cheap.

  3. Jajabinx says:

    Serious question here. Should I stay on 5.05 or should I now finally update? If games can get back ported, I might stay where I am… Anyone can advise?

    • umutpasha says:

      6.72 is so stable believe me also netflix and youtube working aaaand you doesnt need an internet connection for exploit the ps4

    • poiagoboy says:

      If you want the most compatibility still 5.05 is still best but 6.72 has gotten a lot more stable. Hopping to 7.02 right now is just too soon though unless you’re a dev.

    Question, I’ve lived in a cave wrt to PS4 homebrew
    1. is Al-Azif (hosted using an RPi) + cache still a viable method?
    2. are the online methods with DNS change susceptible to detection & ban? (Not that I linked a PSN account or wtv it is called now)

    • ivorysoul says:

      I wouldn’t bother with any online methods. Connect the ps4 to your local wifi network/ wired but put the dns server settings on the ps4 to 127.0.0.1. (stops outside local network contact) Then you can host the exploit on pretty much any http server on your local network. Heck, you can even use a simple http server from the Play Store on an Android phone.

  5. Bunicu Gicu says:

    Hi awfuldance, to use al azif’s payloads go to network connection and edit the dns settings then go to User’s Guide and cache all.
    Since it’s not the latest firmware version, they have no clue if you’re jailbroken or not so they won’t ban you.

  6. Marcelo says:

    I’m on 5.05.

    Is 6.72 stable? Can I update I play “backups” without resinstall everything?

    Is it possible to run backups on 7.02 yet?

  10. Charles Fasano says:

    I still have a brand new PS4 Pro on its launch firmware of 3.70 in my closet.

  11. ProtoCas8 says:

    Amazing progress, this is what it all about. Bye $ony

  12. PS4 says:

    I can’t find a conclusive evidence whether it’s ok to upgrade from 5.55 to 7.02? Backporting is an unnecessary chore and not working on all games.
    What is 7.02s jailbreak rate? It was posted here that success rate of the early hack was something like 1 in 30 tries, Has it been improved further or this is still the case?
    Where can I find 100% compatible 7.02 pup with correct hash?

  13. Lee says:

    found one here:
    https://drivers.softpedia.com/get/gaming-consoles/Sony/Sony-PlayStation-4-Firmware-7-02.shtml#download

    it was the third mirror that worked ok for me

    found an md5 checksum:
    352103a9c78fef4dd4ffd2d317544cec

    which seems to be correct as well
