Hacker Confirms PlayStation 4 Jailbreak

by - 5 years ago


The PlayStation 4 has been on the market for a while now, and since release, you can bet that hackers, modders and more have been tinkering with the hardware and software of the latest Sony console to find a way to run unauthorised software. From homebrew software to piracy, breaking the protection on a console is a huge deal, one that Sony aren’t going to be too fond of, but one that a lot of people are no doubt eager to explore regardless. Naturally, the legalities of such a thing aren’t in the favour of those who do such things.

CTurt, who previously revealed a working PS4 kernel exploit, allowing the running of homebrew content, has now revealed the that PlayStation 4 can be jailbroken using kernel exploits. According to CTurt, the jailbreak allows dumping of the system ram and other processes, which opens the door for custom firmware and software modding. Of course, there’s still a few other security hurdles to get by, but it’s a foot in the door, so to speak.

What happens next remains to be seen, but no doubt will be hearing of further updates on this in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.

    Don’t you mean foot out the door? Just saying at the moment jail (isn’t that inside)?

    I Still remember about 6 months after the PS4 initially launched, there was a very well known ‘hacker’ (for some reason I think his name is GeoHot?) that jailbroke the PS4 and upload it to pastebin, but he was forced to remove it or Sony would have a lawsuit against him.

    But seeing as it’s almost the middle of this console generation it looks like the perfect time for a jailbreak release XD
