    Not sure if this is official, but we have not seen any proof yet so don't over hype yourself. If any of you are wondering what SAMU can do if we decrypt SAMU we can run external/internal iSO so piracy is a thing. Although Hydrogen has stated it was decrypted, but not as we want it. They also claim that they decrypted the SAMU, but not enough to get the keys. Hope for the best! :grog:

    All the rumors are saying Christmas time is when a PS4 piracy method will be released. My 1.76 phat PS4 is ready to be blessed with free games.

    What exactly does SAMU mean? It's a dumb question but I'm curious.

    EDIT: Wow it really was a dumb question. I guess I should read before I post *facepalm*

    To quote https://cturt.github.io/ps4-2.html - "Furthermore, encryption on the PS4 is handled by a separate processor, called SAMU, which is very locked down. Even with a kernel exploit, the SAMU processor is one of the few areas which we don't have complete control over. Although we can interact with it to decrypt almost everything, it is impossible to extract any keys so that decryption could be done externally."

    Thanks for giving me more information. So if someone were to get control over the SAMU, could they decrypt saves too and edit them? Like the PS3 and Bruteforce?

    Just to clarify, is this only for 1.75/1.76? Or can we hope to not rely on downgrade so more people in 3.5X / 4.01 can enjoy it?

    1.76 for now. SAMU is changed each firmware so most likely they did 1.76.

    I would assume so, I'm not sure though.

    Interesting, but I'm on latest FW, lol, so very little hopes for anything coming this way.
