    Wasn't interested in the Hacking my PS4 until after this update. Worth not updating my console?
    Sounds like people are making progress on 4.50+.

    Stay on lower FW as much as possible as you can. Only the developer will say you can go ahead or not. We have a 2.57 since 2 years now. And we refused to update it. :)

    Hey guys, it seems like Im finally hitting the PS4 train.
    I'll be buying Slim, so I was wondering should I be careful which FW is it on?
    And should I update? (is it possible to access PSN store without updating ?)

    Unless you want homebrew and cheats, PS3 games are so cheap nowdays it's not even worth the wait. I paid like 5 dollars for Ni No Kuni and 2 dollars for Twisted Metal lol.

    Oh yes, it is even worth the wait.. Maybe not for you, netovsk. :)

    It will be SO worth waiting for!

    In general lower the firmware the better of course. Qwertyoruiop seems to think he can break (or has broken) 4.55 but he might not even release.

    I'm still on 4.50 on the main PS4, and have a spare 1.52 fw system sitting new in box... just waiting for some homebrew goodness.

    Not really. Install Linux, and do some GTA mods? I think that's about it... nothing I'm really interested in the moment.

    Holy crap just realized I misread this is PS4 hax not PS3, which I thought a new exploit has been discovered for.

    My bad, totally worth it.

    Personally I doubt he will ever release, but then I'm not too sure why he tweets about it constantly. It's not really "security research" if you never disclose to anyone else. No point disclosing to Sony after they have already patched it.

    I'm still wondering this too, I'm on 3.11 but since the exploits were discovered on 4.55 I want to update so I can download some games.
