    There seems to be multiple guides up right now...so Was wondering what's the guide to use for the time being?

    I can use Windows 10 or Android.

    PS4 is on 1.76 right now so haven't done update yet

    Kinda weird how quiet temp is about the exploit, normally its the most active when something like this hits.

    I guess research elsewhere for now. There are some good tube vids.

    Your going to want to take a look here, this is where you'll get all the info you need :)
    4.05 seems the place to be for now.

    It's because we are not allowed to link to downloads on this site. So we are stuck with that crappy hax site. What point is upgrading your 1.76 ofw if you cant play any of the previously installed games. The old exploit required games to be 'cracked'. So once you upgrade, you have to re-download all your games (or at least the missing files). So if we have nowhere to share here, most people go where the links are. Uploads must be good, valid dumps, dumped by an exploited system for them to work. That makes it a bit of a unique situation. Most of the time, you can just have a plain ole hackformation forum with no downloads, like this wonderful forum. But since there are no where to download games, people seem to be using the place with download links as the main forum. Uploads are starting to appear on private trackers, but there is just not enough stuff out there, so people go the place with both things at once.

    Just my two cents.

    (by the way, expressing your opinions at that crappy hax site is a bannable offense - it's a shitty place. If I posted something like this post above over there, I would be IP banned, account banned, registrations closed, links to the sub-forums changed, and that one mod crying and throwing a fit)

    I guess I'll wait for a better exploit then since I'm in no hurry. Main thing is just want to play some of my games without the disc being in there and playing like ps1/2 games

    It's because the exploit is so simple that you don't really need a guide just change a dns in your PS4 wifi setting then click on settings - user guide - vortexhen and thats it you enabled debug settings where you have an option in game to install PKG and since hen is enabled the PKG will run

    Watch modded warfare videos in YouTube he makes things clear and simple

    I agree to an extent but it's not like links were allowed for any of the other recent homebrew scenes so I'm wondering what exactly is different this time round. The only thing I can think of is that maybe none of the main PS4 devs use this site so there's no hype train or scene drama to participate in.

    Yea majority of the devs announce on twitter and share via github, and many discussions are done on discord.

    I agree, this site is pretty quiet with PS4 related topics, would be nice to see more!

    It may be simple to some, but to most its a minefield of trial and error so some basic tutorials would definitely be great!

    I actually updated my PS4 to 4.05 today, formatted it (to start fresh), and grabbed a slew of exploit files from hax and wololo.

    The first issue is that the browser doesnt work... I read you need to connect to same network your laptop is on and upload the permawebbrowser4.05.bin to resolve this, however I really want to stay offline and keep it a completely closed system... is that possible?

    I tested the FigaroCool server, but didnt get anywhere useful: guessing I need to connect my PS4 to the internet (I havent yet, but I have turned off any and all autoupdates etc on PS4 side)

    I dug out my Ez Share wifi SD card aswell and attempted to self host: but again browser doesnt work and loading the user guide loads the main ez share page but cant be redirected....

    My next option is my android phone with hotspot control and ps4serve.... however the payload is not the permawebbrowser one... can I host these html and payload bins with @Kafluke server for the wii u?

    Any advice would be appreciated here :)

    Thank you in advance!

    I use the ezshare card too. It works well for most games but obviously the ones that require a fix need you connected to your PC to FTP over the files.

    You could always disable your internet at the router level while you send the browser unlock payload over from PC.
