    interesting…looks promising…but how much of the game actually plays?

      Once you get it to load, show the menu, and get into the game, unless the developers themselves added some tricks, I’d assume it’s playable to completion… I might be wrong

    I hope Christmas comes early this year

    Cool Hey Seanp thank you for all the ps4 contribution. Not sure why the license theory was retracted because it was already proven that ps5 backups can run only if the game was previously purchased on that system anyways that’s amazing. I’m glad I got a hackable ps5 recently I can only imagine how difficult it’s about to be

    Time to update the ps5 to the latest firmware?

    I bought my horizon bundle ps5 in June 2022 thinking I’d get the 4.51 however I opened it up last week and was i disappointed it’s 5.00. Any chance in near future for JB for 5.00?

    • wololo says:

      There’s growing hope TheFlow will have something for newer firmwares, yes.

      I assume a way to dump PS4 (on the PS5) and PS5 games is in the works? Really going to dump all my PS4 content on my 4.50 PS5 since I can’t do it on my PS4 since it’s not primary.

      Each day is bringing new progress. Keep it up.

    What firmware version are we talking about here?

  8. stalfos says:

    so… anyone happens to know what fw is most likely to ship with new ps5’s nowadays?

  9. George says:

    Is there a website which gives details on minimum firmware required? I’m on 4.0.2 and realize not many of my games can run now.

  10. Where is Firstus says:

    Christmas come early ?!?

    Any idea which firmware ships on the Ps5 “slim”?
    If they are below 7.61 would be awesome coz I think something may also come from the Fl0w’s latest Bd-Jb revelation.

    706 days of waiting and there’s still no jailbreak for 9.03 ps4. The scene developers are useless sellouts to Sony.

    Interesting. Guess we have to wait for confirmation from LM himself, anything else is Chinese whispers But I do hear the 16TB external drive calling me and it’s getting a bit louder.

    Hello guys.
    So, i get this – “Your firmware is not supported” – when i try to go to ” ” .
    I am on 4.50, i can use etahen via other sources (such as but not via pgk-zone. Why is this happening and how can i resolve it? Thx a lot

    Merey liye merey liye. Feed me PS5 backups, native PS3 & PS Vita emulation

  15. doubtfully excited says:

    If you hack the ps5 and do not properly set up DNS, will Sony ban your account or, worse, brick your console? That would be EXPENSIVE!
