    I've never jailbroke my ps4 before, so I wanted to see if there was a way to do so before going through with the next update (If my ps4's firmware is too high, it's whatever). After some quick searching, I saw several websites claiming to have some files for version 8.03. When I downloaded them, the .PUP file was password protected until I completed a survey for them. What's up with that?

    Click-bait. No jailbreak exists above 7.55.

    Definitely a scam to either get you to sit through ads to generate them revenue, or get you to download a virus. This used to be super common back in the early 3DS CFW days, too. Never trust those things.

    They get paid for you competing the survey, they know you will be desperate to do it because nobody else has a jailbreak.

    However if you complete the survey then you don't get a jailbreak, if you did then it would quickly be hosted everywhere without having to complete a survey. They would know this would and wouldn't even bother if the jailbreak was real as only one person would answer the survey.

    Any site that hides "jailbreaks" behind surveys is fake.
    Please spread the word to others, don't fall for scam sites like that
