    I'm beginning to think that there will never be an exploit above 5.05, at least not until the PS5 comes out. This gen sucks as far as hacking capabilities... except for the Switch, of course.

    There is plenty of 5.05 systems out there, and a developer doesn't have to release an exploit because the general public demand it, it is up to the developer, just look at the Xbox one they don't even have a kernel level exploit.

    Why waste your time waiting for an exploit when its never going to happen. There's been no exploit released in nearly six months. The "Secret Method" was just a PSN loophole & exploiting video apps looks like a userland exploit rather than a full exploit. Even scene releases have slowely dried up.

    Well you are always welcome to come up with your own exploit than complaining about what other come up with.

    Why the Devs don't release a 6.20 exploit or a 5.55 exploit in future? in 2020 come out the PS5 and all the PS4 sell the console

    "Devs dont release it" because its not iser firendly, its a poc or kernel level execution at best, and its not being developed for release either.

    Rather than finding new exploit, i would need a way to play new games on old update, the Vita just got this method using plugin called reF00D, and before that from rePatch (but that need someone with hacked system on high FW to decrypt the game then patch the game to works on low FW).

    Q: Possible?
    Answer: Everything is possible in the PS4 community. the fact that it is not public does not mean it does not exist. What you ask is certainly possible (from a good resource), but so far there will be no public or more info .. and finally I write a wisdom that goes on the Internet: "Patience brings roses."... and one more thing: in my opinion PS5 will not mean PS4 will be sold and people will no longer be interested in homebrew, ps4 can be another 6 years. If you do not like that it's not all public right then leave the community or create something of your own or find better friends(for shatzi). :)

    I wasn't fussing, I was just curious. I agree with you that just bc a PS5 is released the PS4 will still be actively worked on. I'm still rocking an RGH XBOX 360 :) - LOVE IT!!!

    To be fair, Xbox One has just as much if not more homebrew via devmode then a hacked PS4, it also can do Kodi natively, and emulators via its browser, combine that with developers being able to make legit apps through UWP and constantly offering games and discounts via either gold, or gamepass, there isn't a huge demand for xbox exploits.

    That said, from what I read it does look like the ps4 video apps exploit should at least be able trigger kexploit, it probably just less compatible and user freindly then the browser so hasn't been utilized as much, this is probably a good thing as sony patches the browser entry more it can be a fall back for developers for more recent firmware.

    PS4 does draw a lot more attention than the Xbox one, it seem like no one wants to hack the Xbox one, even Nintendo switch is beating the Xbox one to the punch.

    Besides the xbox likely being way more difficult to exploit, they have been way ahead of the curve when it comes to developer services, getting a native kodi app is a huge step in homebrew going mainstream, something that Sony's huge footprint in the movie, and media player industry will likely not ever allow.

    This is from d4rk aisen, he hasn’t shown anything useful yet, I’m personally not convinced he’s legit... yet.

    @aos10 that relies on someone with higher exploit, having physical/PSN titles to dump, and SDK modules being matching and portable back down to 5.05. Too many ifs, and too much reliance on one person to pirate everything for the (5.05) masses.

    Best option (imho) would be to crack PFS, one way would be to reverse Orbis-Pub-Gen to see if the fingerprint generated is truly random and truly 64^32*32 possibilities.

    Cross your fingers for another Sony fail there.

    PSC = keys on console
    PS3 = random fail
    PSV = AAAAAAAAAA
    PS4 = ?
