sorry mate, forgot.

Every time a member uses that excuse, somewhere a baby kitten dies.

DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY POOR BABY KITTENS HAVE DIED UP TO THIS POINT? DO YOU? :angry:

Err... sorry, I got carried away somehow. Regardless, I still don't believe you, since you were totally able to put a question mark into the OP.

More likely, decrypting the pkg's that need 4.05+ and patching out the required firmware, like you can on the PS3.

Is a spoofer possible? Because ever since, I'm subscribed with PSN. And my subscription is active for 2 more years so I'm really having 2nd thoughts if I should sell my current ps4 (latest firm) and buy a pre 4.07 one.

If a spoofer is indeed possible then that means I can play all my legit games online on a 4.05 and at the same time use homebrews right?

Unlike PS3 or 3ds, ps4 has meaningful updates which extend the sony api available both in the system and online. For example: 4.07 patches a part of the current hen workflow (I don't remember if it was the user or the kernel part, but I do believe it's the latter), 4.50 adds game installation to USB and 4.55 adds pro mode to deliver special graphic settings to ps4 pro.

Without these functions, syscalls, and underlying code base properly implemented the games simply will crash. Even if we force a game >4.05 to install (which is completely possible with the game's unencrypted files) it will just plainly crash into a ball of fire trying to run.

So, unless we manually implement those changes (via decrypting an update and installing) and then "spoof" (right down changing the version everywhere) there's a chance of that working. As I put it, it sounds more and more like updating to me.

Long story short: Wait for releases in newer versions. Maybe there's a chance of installing some sort of patch for the update code to ignore signatures so we could install "cfw"-esque updates of the system. I highly doubt it though.

    And If you get a part that might be defective you'd need to wait longer and spend more

    USB is fine, but shouldn't it be replaced with bulky, hard to use cables and all sorts of proprietary male-female connector port shapes?

    It's so frustrating to have one simple cable that you can plug in upside down for everything!!!

    USB4 can do up to 40gbps I'd welcome it

    From a Linus video it's essentially just a type c with an advanced chip

    40Gbps is just going to result in even more more lazy developers writing sub-optimal, lazy code.

    How? That transfer speed is insane

    That's like saying fast transfers is going to be the downfall of gaming

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Then when devs that actually do take their time makes people cry over them taking their time and having to wait even longer
    +2
  • Shape @ Shape:
    Very astute observations, but you failed to take into account people like me who prefer devs to take their time despite longer waits and really, really dislike the suboptimal approaches many studios are taking with game development in this day and age. Catering to the customers with impatient impulses for instant-gratification is a super-profitable business strategy in the short term, sure, but it is an untenable business strategy in the longer term simply because you cannot guarantee you can produce a quality game in that timespan repeatedly. Therefore, you will have to abuse your workforce or partake in other inethical practices in order to compete in the marketplace and remain profitable.

  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    Not really a fail the general public just doesn't know how to wait I don't see what faster transfer speeds have to do with that
    +2
  • K3N1 @ K3N1:
    That's why GTA games are so great because they have that 5-10 year wait and most new sports games are updated roasters they can't really do much improvement with them because not much their is to improve but on the other hand you get a new cod game every year and it makes millions per year so why stop the cash flow if people are dumb enough to buy every new game peryear
