    JaiCrab, a Spanish developer, has recently released a tool for the Raspberry Pi that could possibly read/write to the PS4's flash memory!

    EDIT:Looks like we have the first dev to dump the PS4 Flash memory! Though he took quite a few steps, and it definitely wasn't so user-friendly...

    I've seen RasPi's done weirder things.

    Interesting none the less.

    but keep in mind that just because we can do this, it does not mean that we can hack the ps4 so simply, we can dump and write the 3ds's nand, but we cannot (yet) use this to hack it etc :)

    ohh wait, n0 g43mz t0 b4ckup ;O;

    This is only the beginning, once they have the flash dumped and decripted they can have an idea of how to do something to run homebrew and the like, but since the PS4 is almost a standard PC I don't think they'll be interested on homebrew.

    It's always funny to me how fast this stuff happens.
