    And that would be sad. I can wait for a safe time to publish it, but keeping it forever secret would be very sad.

    But Chaitin weren't the only ones to know about that exploit. They pissed off quite a few people who had been sitting on the exploit when they gave it to Sony.

    Makes me question why other groups/teams haven't released it themselves.

    Maybe they're afraid of Sony's lawyers?

    So the PS4 is pretty much never going to be exploited because of legal issues?

    This is how internet rumours start.

    Nobody said that the exploit won't be released, nobody said people are afraid of getting sued by Sony. This is an assumption from one person which is already being accepted as fact.

    As always, the lack of info and the will to know produces assumptions (wrong ones usually by the lack of info) to keep the train going towards our goal (or not).

    I dealt with the fact that it probably wouldn't get released for a long time, and I've got games to play so whatever

    Not many ppl on the ps4 hacking scene are attention whores like geohot is/was. It's easy to sue someone who publicly disclose 0day exploit and put his name on it.

    Very true, Marcan stated if he was afraid of Sony he would leak the exploit to some private 3rd party site.

    Hiya, i'm new to the PS4 Hacking & Homebrew Scene, I have a few questions

    A) Is it possible to play Backups and/or homebrew on the PS4 AFTER jailbreaking and what other features are there?
    B) Which versions is it possible to Jailbreak the PS4
    C) Whether you can still play online after jailbreaking
    D) Can this be done on the PS4 Pro yet?

    Not necessarily, but that's what laws are for. All legal issues that could arise from publicizing exploits are speculation at this point. But if the laws are effective, and Sony's lawyers are efficient, they honestly should do all that they can to prevent piracy.
    1. No
    2. None
    3. No

    Kernel level unsigned code execution in v1.76 doesn't count as jailbreak?

    Still, the "jail" is technically broken. Or is it?

    Wiki

    Technically, "jailbreaking" is a term associated with iOS.
    Many people (especially ill informed) have started to associate it with general hacking and exploiting.

    "HOW 2 JAILBREAK WII U" "How do i jailbreak xbox" etc etc.

    Same can be said for people who say "kernal instead of kernel"
    But that's just nitpicking.

    But yes, There's a kernel exploit on 1.76 which allows us to run Linux.
    However, there's no backup tool or ANY modification of the game OS publicly known.
    So, again, running linux is useless for people who want to pirate.
    All they care about is running pirated games and not the interesting security side (or the homebrew side)
