PS5 Jailbreak: Official tools and news for PS5 Jailbreak, latest updates directly from the PS5 hacking scene. You just got yourself a new PS5, and are looking for a PS5 Jailbreak / PS5 Custom Firmware solution? Then bookmark this page, as it will be kept up to date with the latest, greatest, and simplest solutions available for PlayStation 5 CFW.
PS5 Jailbreak – the current status
PS5 up to Firmware 4.51 can be partially hacked through a Kernel exploit. While this would traditionally be enough for a Jailbreak on older generation consoles, this isn’t what one can call a “Jailbreak” for the PS5. Currently, people on firmware 4.51 or below can enjoy limited access to the PS5’s internals through the IPV6 exploit (details below).
For PS5 Firmware up to 7.20 (23.01-07.20.00), the Mast1c0re Exploit is an exploit that leverages a bug in PS2 remakes (such as Okage: shadow King), and that runs on the PS5. In theory this works on all firmwares up to 7.20 included (the latest firmware at the time of writing). That exploit isn’t a Kernel exploit and doesn’t constitute a Jailbreak, but lets you run PS2 Iso and PS2 Homebrew on the PS5. Details here.
Again, no complete “Jailbreak” has been publicly released for the PS5, and in particular running pirated PS5 or PS4 games isn’t possible on the console at the moment. Any site claiming they can allow you to do so might be scamming you, so proceed with caution.
PS5 3.00 to 4.51 Kernel Exploit
(supports firmwares 3.00, 3.10, 3.20, 3.21, 4.00, 4.01, 4.02, 4.03, 4.50, 4.51)
Late 2022, a Kernel exploit was released for the PS5. PS5s on firmware 4.51 or lower are vulnerable to a combination of a usermode exploit and a kernel exploit that gives arbitrary read/write access on the console. Although considered not a full jailbreak, this is the most access we’ve had to the console internals so far. You can check it out (and us it if you’re one of the lucky owners of a 4.03/4.50/4.51 PS5) below. The exploit was confirmed to work from firmwares 3.00 to 4.51 included.

PS5 BD-JB exploit and Webkit Exploit
Please note that when we refer to the 3.00-4.51 exploit above, we often talk about the BD-JB or Webkit versions of the exploit. This is because there are two entry points to access the PS5 hack, one vulnerability in the BluRay player and one in Webkit respectively. Some tools or releases might work for one implementation and not the other. Which version of the exploit is generally up to you, although people on a Digital PS5 have no choice but to use the Webkit version.
