This fault injection attack on AMD CPUs Could be super relevant for a PS5 hack

    First !!!

    Yeah, ok, but today we don’t have any Custom Firmware for PS4 and xBox One..

      because you dont need it especially on an abox one you can already run 3rd party windows programs on a xb1 out of box

        The reasoning behind there not being ps4 CFW is most certainly not because “we don’t need it”. As soon as its possible it will be released because not everyone like you wants to run an exploit every time they boot up their ps4 or keep it permanently in sleep mode 😉

    These types of attacks potentially leaves the chips firmware venerable, which in turn can be exploited. Anybody interested in the non pre-school explanation of these exploits should check out the white paper called “Shaping the Glitch:
    Optimizing Voltage Fault Injection Attacks”

    1st this may or may not lead to a JB.
    2nd don’t expect a custom firmware to ever come out of this those days like the PS3 and the PS Vita are long gone Sony now has a lot more mitigations in place to prevent that it’s the same reason why there is no custom firmware on the PS4.
    3rd if a this does allow a JB it’s likely going to need a chip and some soldering like the RGH on the Xbox360 likely need to have HEN injected during device bootup.

      This. I have hacked 3ds, vita ,switch, ps3, ps4, wiiu, and gave up hacking the ps5 and actually pay for my games now. Reason being the bounty one program and how the ps4 was never hacked fully. Also improved Sony security. I may be wrong but i am not waiting who knows how long for something that may or may not happen.
