Sold that second PS5 few months ago, not like I really need something larger than 50 inches, not like I need money, I have money, I spent 1k on the 4TB SSD lol, and so far no issue with those battery lol.

"So far" does not mean that it is not a serious fire hazard. Go look at the user images on Amazon alone. That thing could destroy all that nice stuff you own in an instant. A fire only takes one time. Just a heads up. Why would you not rather be safe than sorry?

Edit: I forgot to mention that Amazon refunded mine, as it was WAY overly hot to the touch on more than one occasion. I didn't even have to send it back to them. I broke it so no one else could find it and use it, then tossed it in the trash. I replaced it with the "Pro" version of the Energizer charger. Works great. :) https://www.amazon.com/Energizer-Rechargeable-Auto-Safety-Over-charge-Protection/dp/B00IM3P8GS

I still have mine in the box from Black Friday (a week or two after launch date?)

is this hackable?
More than likely yes. The boards were actually made as far back as June/July 2021. At least mine is. - My primary is a day 1 which is up to date and this one is just sat waiting for the day. - The user land part is released, just got to wait for the kernel exploit..

I know this thread is a few months old but it's seems like the best place for me to mention this (and I didn't want to start a brand new thread). Just wanted to mention that I was able to buy a PS5 from Walmart 3 days ago and just got it today and the firmware that was on it was 4.03. So the allegedly hackable firmware is still being shipped with new consoles being bought now. Hope this helps anyone out trying to get their hands on a 4.03 console. Good luck out there.

I’ll check my Walmart CFI-115A today and see the firmware as well.

I'm done with the PayStation with them blocking PSN subscriptions because they want to make a few extra bucks on PS Now. My PayStation 5 is going offline until it can be hacked.

theres basically no exploit available to the public yet so not much you can do even with a low firmware
RIght, I'm aware, but I also know of vulnerable firmwares such as 4.03. That's the only reason because I have a new PS5 still in its box and was wondering if its exploitable.

Here is an article showing that the PS5 is exploitable and at the time of that post was on the latest firmware.

https://wololo.net/2021/11/08/ps5-k...gs-menu-on-retail-console-no-plan-to-release/

And then another post talking about the current status of a PS5 jailbreak.

https://wololo.net/2022/04/12/ps5-jailbreak-the-status-in-2022-2/

But in conclusion, this is what they have to say, "There are some rays of hope for those of us on firmware 4.03 or below, and in particular people can play (and dig for kernel exploits) with the ROP toolchain, but at the moment this all looks very thin. There is certainly no indication of a kernel exploit release any time soon."

Me personally, I already have an up to date PS5 and now that I have a PS5 on 4.03 that i bought from Wal-mart, I am just going to keep it in the box in the hopes that one day the exploit gets released or that someone else discovers and releases it knowing that that could be years down the road. Again, this is just what I am doing and have no other insights other than what I've read online. Hope this helps.
