Sony PS4 Hacking is a cottage industry lately, and while jailbreaking iPhones and iPads was once a huge task invented by hackers, the PS4 jailbreak is equally attractive to those who are able to pick up the latest consoles and hacking from Sony. it's for bits.
With every new release of PS4 software, Sony closes more and more security holes, making it harder to hack. That's what makes it so interesting, and now a new proof-concept for the 5.0 5.0 PS4 hack is available, showing the fun is still far from over.
Shared via GitHub, new proof of concept is now available and is based around WebKit exploits. ReadMe for PoC mentions that this program really works on PS4 version 5.01 software and it can also work on others, even though it has not been confirmed yet.
Based on :
- PegaSwitch (Copyright 2017 ReSwitched Team)
- 4.0x is exploited by qwertyoruiopz
This exploit supports 5.01 (maybe others)!
While this may not be something that average jailbreak enthusiasts use, it could potentially give others a starting point to make the jailbreak more user friendly. The installation and use of this particular PoC is described in the same ReadMe, although we do not expect many "normal" users to try it out first.
- Install the latest version of node from nodejs.org
- Cloning this repository
- Run npm install
- Run npm start
Hacking PS4 continues to prove popular among those who have previously handed over its performance to iOS, and while Sony has so far prevented its widespread jailbreaking console, as well as piracy that is just as vast, stopping hackers from stirring - and that's good news indeed.
