PS4 version 7.55 gets Mira custom firmware and jailbreak update

ps4.PNG

The PS4 homebrew scene can enjoy not one but two new releases thanks to a team of modders including sleirsgoevy and AlAzif. Released at the same time are the Mira custom firmware compatible with PS4s on firmware 7.55 and an updated jailbreak also for PS4s on version 7.55. The exploit and payloads are also compatible with versions 7.50 and 7.51.


However, they are still early releases with the exploit reportedly taking several tries before successfully running it. But you can expect some fixes in the days to come.

Even the 7.02 exploit is temperamental, I probably will update eventually to 7.5x but only when there's a game I really want to play.

Staying on 5.05 would have been cool, rest mode always seemed to work etc, but backporting can't fix everything:
Some games really do need newer functionality, for example I saw posted on another site:
Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme vs. Maxiboost On backport 5.05 ok, but game use sceSaveDataSetupSaveDataMemory2, 5.05 can't save
Mobile Suit Gundam Extreme vs. Maxiboost save file size is 10mb and 36mb (replay data), 5.05 save file size limit is 8mb max


I expect the only way to get a nice stable hack is through a different exploit which is a shame, I hope I'm wrong about that though!

Wait a minute... custom firmware?
Is this new for PS4? Does it mean higher chance of working than 6.72 that I’m currently running?

ahhh thanks. I thought they released an actual custom firmware similar to PS3.

that's probably never going to happen unfortunately. we don't have very many keys.

from what I understand, we can install games currently, but we can't play them, so I wouldn't update yet. plus, it's supposed to be prone to kernel panics and has low reliability just like 7.02.
