      Wow. Damn thing hasn’t even been out for a year. And they crack it wide open, Guess that solidifies my decision to buy one. Sit it up and wait for the CUSTOM FIRMWARE….. HA HA HA. Take that SONY.

      • Bardolino says:

        Nah.
        Besides encryption keys, there are likely signing keys (assymetric) so one cannot create custom FW the way it was on PS3

    Not Fisrtus

    Holy moly, it’s PS3 all over again.

    PS4 Protection >>>>>>> PS5 lol

    References an 8 year old article about “Jailbroken consoles are not worth it anymore “. I’m pretty sure my hacked/jailbroken Switch was definitely worth it. Overclocking, changing game graphics settings, emulation, and a *** ton more.

    Homebrew isn’t dead lol.

    I really would like use my ps5 as a desktop with Linux.

      It’s apparently already been done. Chinese govt were rumored to have arrested a giant crypto mining operation. (Since apparently their gov outlawed all mining farms there) where they were alluding the govt because they weren’t using ASICS or gpu’s to mine. They actually were mining with thousands of used PS4’s all clustered in Linux and apparently there were a couple ps5’s spotted. As far as I know that’s not confirmed tho. But I do know you can mine ether on consoles since ps3

    This is awesome! But i really would like to see an exploit on ps4 8.xx 9xx.
    So I can test and develop my own homebrew 😉

    will use same method on ps4 to bring cfw only then when enough games are out on ps5 year or so then consider it being released my call…

  9. Bl4ck says:

    Whelp, the PS5 is doomed.

    • TurboSnail says:

      Can’t they just release new firmware update to fix it?

      • ShadyDemoness says:

        If FALilOverFlow doesn’t disclose the exploit here same as with the ps4 exploit theire holding back, how will Sony know what to fix.

        They’re holding back probably because they want to see if Sony knows of those vulnerabilities and if they fix them. So theyre waiting for a few updates to pass by and look if any of them patches the vulnerability.

        • Adraxis says:

          The flow will report to Sony for the bounty and they will patch it. Fail overflow may be doing the same.

    Wow

    nice, i guess

    Nice done by Team fail0verflow.
    Impressive work to make ARM run on a x86 Core
    CVE-2021-26333

    • A says:

      Huh? Arm on x86 core? Where are you getting that from? The ps5 isn’t ARM…. and neither was the ps4. People are terming the system setup incorrectly with the ps5…. it’s actually an AMD apu technically on a 7nm process with some expanded memory capabilities . Totally not ARM my friend. Or x86….

      • theUnkown says:

        U are right, ps5 isn´t ARM. Fail0verflow managed to make some kown ARM code run on the PS4 and PS5.
        In my point of view they spend a lot of time to compile that code for Gonzalo.
        So its a impressive work.
        Have a look @ CVE-2021-26333

        • Maav says:

          Did you really look at the vulnerability you’re referencing?

          That’s an information disclosure exploit/memory leak on AMD drivers for Windows (amdpsp.sys)…

  13. Jeff Winger says:

    So is it time to go grab me a ps5 and leave it untouched for a year or two until we see a functional exploit and payload or nah?, cuz I’m thinking if this news is legit then there will be a huge price spike for both new and used ps5’s, plus assuming the chip shortage isn’t coming to an end anytime soon which will make ps5s even harder to get, right??.

  14. cyberpunk 2077 says:

    blah blah I hope taht consoles ps5 and xsx will be never crfacked

  15. momo says:

    Wonder if you could jb the PS5 and then install Linux to play Steam games via Proton. With the GPU prices these days PS5PC would be a pretty decent price/performance machine.

    You think that would be possible?

  16. lechu says:

    Should I update my ps4 to FW 9.0 or stay 8.52?
