    It turns out that my plasma TV breaking half way through last year wasn’t so bad after all, because I haven’t turned my PS4 Pro on since so it’s bound to be below 7.55!

    Thought TheFlow was done with releasing public exploit for ps4

    • MrHappy says:

      He disclosed it on Sony’s bounty platform. It will probably trickle down to end-users on older firmware, but he’s not exactly releasing it for us. I applaud him for profiting off his skills, and disclosing exploits for Sony could land him a comfy security job some day.

    I try to find a site to Download the 7.51 but, nothing. Somebody can help ?

    I only want the PS4 hack to use dlc for my original Street Fighter V game because it tries to force me to be signed on to use in game currency in the first place and that makes me angry because I would have to update to the latest firmware. I think it’s a dirty rotten trick. I’m also interested in emulators. I have a legal right to backup my games.
