    $10 grand is a lot of money for most people. heck, I'd probably have done the same.

    yes, the only two I care about that I know of for 7.5x are ghost of tsushima and the last of us 2. I'd like ys memories of celceta too, but I don't know what firmware that requires.

    I remember someone installing Windows 10 and running Steam games on the system, but couldn't tell you how well those games, if any at all, ran.

    you can run ps3 and wii u games as well, but those are through linux I believe, which I've never installed on either ps3 or ps4.

    And ppl are white knight mad b/c he wanted some money? Jeez.... Atleast he leaves an exploit for the community to play with and not use the "In Private" bullshit like the other devs. We should be thanking him for what we have now.

    not sure. I think they use emulators through linux. I believe I've heard wii u games run well, not sure about ps3 games.

    I understand what @CanIHazWarez is saying but from my personal experience this is a great thing that the Fl0w did disclose this information because there is hope of the PS4 being fully exploitable at the EOL. I had first hand experience with a jailbroken PS4 before I had sold it 3 years ago (5.05) it was a pain to get the games and it was more easier just buying them since they are dirt cheap.

    Also FYI it is NOT easy to find a exploitable PS4 for cheap because a good percantage of people update their systems to the latest firmware. When you do go on ebay you have to shellout $300+ on old equipment the only good thing is hope you can find a new PS4 inside the box from GameStop that has 7.55 FW. (if you are lucky)

    probably not for several days or a couple weeks. I think that's about how long 7.02 took, and that thing is very unstable too.

    That's because it's usually a very old firmware by the time they release the exploit, but this time it is not that old and should be very easy to find a cheap system for the next few weeks at least.

    I bought one cheap and sat on it for a couple of months until the exploit came out, if you must wait and then want it straight away then I guess you pay a premium.

    To be very honest with you if a new system from GameStop is on 7.55 or below I rather buy new versus used... but again idk what firmware is on the new ones at GameStop or Walmart. 7.55 is pretty old the only people who would have that are people who missed out on 5.05, or 6.72. I would be very interested in getting a new one if it is on low firmware.

    Funny thing I actually bought one for $325 3 years ago but at the time I couldn't get the games for it or understood it was locked on 5.05 so I had sold it. I sometimes regret doing it but at the time the scene was moving so slow and it was on 5.05 firmware for a while. I wouldn't buying one again considering 7.55 firmware has alot of games on it. Most my jailbroken devices I buy on ebay and I never had a problem with it however it depends on the person that had the item before you.

    Both of my CFW switches came from ebay in top condition.

    Good for those who are on 7.55 FW.

    Some sites saying this might work on 8.0 or might be patched.
