    sony thought the ps3 was unhackable, even saying so before release, so they were caught unprepared.

    Hard to be mad when he's given so much life to otherwise pointless systems. But does feel a little sell out ISH, but then again you gotta get paid so it is what it is.
    TV console hacks haven't been the same since PS3 & 360, latest consoles aren't nearly as fun without a hack

    one of the biggest fuck ups by sony was not authenticating what device is downloading their content. granted you need the license, but there are apps that provide that. this is even true with the ps4. you can get their god links with a proxy, same with ps3, vita, and psp. I wonder if you can with the ps5? I mean even nintendo fixed that with the switch.

    Where can I find past update files? The official PS site only has the latest one.

    ...why? They're public update files, which are 100% fine to link here.

    I mean if we are going to be honest most people who do jailbreak/mod their system do it to pirate games. Piracy is probably one of the main reasons why people jailbreak I mean sure homebrew and etc..etc.. but most people are not going to give up playing online just to play games from 20 years ago or use some apps when they can use apps on other devices that can give better performance. I get what you are saying but I also get what the other guy is saying too, I agree with the other guy more what he gave to Sony is worth more than $10,000. I'm pretty sure SXOS made more than $10,000.

    YES I do agree with you of some people feel entitled for a jailbreak but I prefer that you charge me for the jailbreak and get the job done efficiently. (Some people will hate me for this) But none of the scenes were efficient when it came to releasing jailbreaks because of the ongoing cat and mouse game they played. I rather receive a jailbreak at EOL knowing that it will be efficient versus getting the jailbreak at mid life of a system just to be locked out of future games or online. Half these guys release a jailbreak for their 5 minutes of fame but that jailbreak could have been effective at the EOL. I mean constantly jumping from CFW to CFW is NOT EFFICIENT.

    At EOL everyone wins because Sony/Nintendo has moved on to the newer console and they are not even making the older console. You wouldn't be under pressure (I mean they will be upset) but not as upset but again that's my 2 cents. The Flow could have teamed up with SXOS (same guys who made Trueblue dongle in the PS3 scene) and could have easily made $250K. Sony is a billion dollar company they gave him table scraps when that jailbreak is much more.

    Some people will disagree for paying for jailbreaks but I digress pay people for their time because if not they will just take the table scraps from a company. The Fl0w was IN NEED of those $10,000 and he took it. Most these guys work for free so to him it's $10,000 more in his pocket versus the 10,000 people complaining to him and not even giving him a dollar so I understand both sides.

    I haven't read your full post but most games I've pirated over the years I wouldn't of bought anyway even for £1, and because I got to try some games free, I ended up buying em or later releases of said franchise. Dude who you were replying to seems a real bitch, hate squeaky clean fools like that. Priorities fucked up for getting the most out of the system you bought eediot

    There are some sites out there that are sticklers when it comes to sharing firmware updates since they're copyright protected. I remember this being a thing with the PSP. There were some forums back in the day that had zero tolerance for sharing these files, and I guess that same principle has carried on, even though Sony makes the files publicly available. Think of it like how you can't share SXOS here since it contains Nintendo code. That's their line of thinking.

    Are the recovery files for when you want to restore your PS4?
    I'm planning to upgrade my HDD to a bigger one later this year but I want to stay in 7.51.
