    The Holy Grail of PS4 hacking, discovered by CTurt some time ago but never released, has been leaked today. Known as the BADIRET exploit, it gives full access to the PS4 hardware. It was designed to work for firmware version 1.76 originally, but sources say it -may- work up to 2.01 with a different entrypoint.

    (If I have my facts straight, the common webkit exploit was patched after 1.76, but the BADIRET exploit was not patched until after 2.01)

    Currently, not much can be done with this, although Team fail0verflow does have an interesting Linux loader that is open source and seems to be fairly functional at this time, the only thing they don't supply is the hack (BADIRET) to load it with.

    On a side note, be prepared to drop some MAJOR cash on one of these old firmware PS4's. Maybe you will have some luck here:

    (Editor's Note: I have a 1.71 PS4 that I will update and personally test this on once I get back from my mini-vacation!)

    My PS4 is still on 1.74, not because I was intentionally keeping it there, but haven't had the time. Would resulting things likely work with that firmware version? If not is it like the PS3 where I could do an offline update to 1.76?

    Yes, you can offline update with a USB stick.

    Everyone: Please cut the chatter on IOSU exploit, this isn't the place for the will it/won't it discussion >_>

    If I remember correctly, The Last of Us requires 1.76 and comes with it on disc... the bundle... probably?

    Ok thanks. I heard people say it might but the game actually having it on disc makes me kind of sure it might have it.

    Why would anyone waste thier time with this when a android box can install kodi risk free without your psn account getting comprised? (additionally it can do more than just kodi) On top of that a android box will be way more cheaper than paying for a lower firmware ps4.

    This just prooves how useless the homebrew scene is in its current state.

    The ps4 can run full blown linux. That means retro emulators with multiple bluetooth and usb based support, ultra portable for taking to friends houses too!
