Heads up: Samsung 980 Pro 2TB is $179.99 on Amazon. $189.99 with heatsink. (One of the most recommended SSDs for PS5)

    Eh, not worth at this point. I’ll wait until it’s worthwhile and there’s a ESP8266 solution.

    Good tutorial! Thanks!

    Why this method seems so complicated and difficult. Please Wololo make it more simple so that we (non-geeks) could understand how to enable the debug settings

    • wololo says:

      The tutorial looks a bit daunting but in practice this is *not* complicated (just very detailed?) if you give it a try. I give a lot of steps that help you verify that you’re doing it correctly every step of the way. In practice, If I had to summarize it more succinctly, it would be: 1) find a way to connect your PS5 to the internet, 2)run the hack on your computer 3)make sure your PS5 is using the fakeDNS 4) display the PS5 manual.

      That being said, if doing it yourself is too complicated, instead use one of the public hosts I provide at the top of the article. You’ll still need to do some DNS trickery for the manual to load one of these urls (and if doing that is beyond your skillset, let me tell you that running the exploit is not for you at the moment, you will get nothing useful out of it)

    So is this for 4.50 as well or is 4.03 the Golden goose?

    • wololo says:

      Both will be ok eventually I feel. Better to stay on 4.03 if that’s what you have. It seems some hackers have 4.03 and therefore publish things for that firmware. I would bet their work will be ported to 4.50 fairly quickly.

        Okay cool. Unfortunately I’m on 4.5 and was just hoping it would be good. I’ll take your words as better than nothing. Thanks for the reply.
