    Not sure what versions the WebKit exploit works on. BADIRET should work for all previous firmware up to 2.01. You should be able to update to 1.76 with a GTA V disk or with the firmware PUP (http://www.ps3devwiki.com/ps4/1.760.000) on a USB stick.

    I purchased a console on 1.76 firmware for $400 a few months ago. Kernel code exec is the first step in opening up the system for further exploitation. This will lead to a better understanding of the internal operating system and the crypto engine and help drive new exploit development for future versions. In other words, this is very important, just not for script kiddies. ;P

    Hey, I ended up buying the Grand Theft Auto V/ The Last of Us Remastered Bundle new for $369.99 on ebay a few months ago (right when Cturt announced the exploit). Not sure how much the Knack bundle is??? I would deferentially recommend looking around on eBay/Amazon and directly messaging the sellers for more info. You might even be able to find a used one on older firmware! :o I would personally look for consoles that don't include any cables or games (just the console) as it is more likely to have been sitting collecting dust some ware. Like when I was hunting down an older Wii U I searched for ones without the Gamepad and directly messaged the seller to confirm firmware version.

    Based on the name of the exploit it is a very interesting exploit.

    Why? Because they make you realize how underpowered consoles are? :)
