    Renowned for his work in the PSVita scene, TheFlow has extended his contribution into the PS4 scene. Last night, he announced a new kernel exploit he found on the PS4 firmware 7.02. He further mentions that this vulnerability can be combined with a Webkit exploit for firmwares up to 6.72; hinting at the potential Jailbreak.


    This exploit has, however, been patched in the PS4's 7.50 FW since TheFlow himself worked with Sony's HackerOne bounty program to expose this issue. For those looking for more technical details around the exploit, head to the HackerOne page right here to learn more.

    Wait, what, this is huge news.

    This could potentially make every game playable as the console is coming to EOL.

    Hopefully. TLOU2 is said to be 7.5, so maybe there's a way to workaround that if ever

    I don't see that happening, well not loads anyway. I imagine 99% of retail units will be below that firmware

    Still needs a webkit tho so its not really a full 7.02 release yet. The fact that Flow left the ps4 scene worries me alittle

    TheFlow would retire after this right?

    That is correct
    Because of the toxic scene and kids demanding stuff for free from him

    Big companies don't need to worry about piracy, just wait until the scene destroys itself :/

    I've lost interest in the exploit after waiting all these years.
    Besides, most of my time I spend it on Dreams so I can't just stop updating.

    So 6.72 is the "latest" hackable PS4. When was that roughly?
