    GeekPWN, a security convention for "nerds", had an interesting surprise today when 2 Chinese hackers showcased a possible 4.01 KSploit as shown in the Youtube video above (bear with it, it's a little goofy in the beginning, but you can skip to around the 2 minute mark for the actual demonstration). As of right now, there has been NO additional information shared by these hackers that show whether this is truly a legitimate hack.

    The only reason I'm creating this thread is because it was shown at a legitimate convention where other well-known individuals such as GeoHot is attending.

    Could this be a true-blue 4.01 jailbreak? For now, no one can say. Hopefully we get some additional information soon regarding whether this exploit is truly legit, or just an elaborate scam.

    Oh well... i am a risk-taker.

    Updated to latest firmware.

    *shrugs* Let's hope it's real.

    EDIT: We need subtitles for that video.

    The answer is simply no. From what we have seen with the PS4 we would need about 3 or 4 more years to make a good one. Hopefully this is real, but I have my doubts.

    The URL only goes to a page with their video. I've already tried the URL myself :P


    Based on what, exactly? We've already had one exploit for 1.76, it's more than likely there's another.

    I am talking fully developed PS4 jailbreak. If they released a jailbreak with SteamOS, backup managers, and PS1/PS2/PS3 compatibles I would be fine. I don't really care for cheating online. I have two PS4 one for online and other for CFW.

    1.76 can already run a full Linux distro, it's "there". At this point, drivers are really the only thing holding the 1.76 back in terms of playing actual Steam games/use SteamOS.

    You're not going to see at least PS3 compatibility with any hacked PS4 period unless Sony releases a native emulator period, and the same is likely true for PS2 unless someone tries porting over PCSX2.

    I'll just wait and see. Maybe it turns out to be a true hack and i am happy, or it turns out to be fake and i will be mad, but we shall see.

    Well I can understand if u get mad trust me before I got two PS4 systems I was literally looking at the update button ready to give in. I never did just saved up for a second console and now I can play online! Good luck though hopefully it turns out to be official. ^_^

    I can wait ; P

    Hope for CFW. Dongle means we have to buy and the point of CFW is to NOT buy. :)

    but how a sort of web hack already available on previous firmware could lead to this ???
