May be the way to spoof the 1.76 firmware in the future... ;)
There are two problems I think:

1. The current exploit runs after the system boots, so although the system won't care if files are modified after triggering the exploit, as soon as you reboot it will brick (assuming it checks that as part of pre-boot verification). To get around this, you either need to load into a separate firmware (see emunand), temporarily patch the version number in memory and hope nothing reloads it, or find an exploit that actually triggers during the boot process.

2. There is more to the version number than just a number. While most of the firmware updates are BS, some do add new APIs and features that newer games rely on. Even if a game boots with thinking the firmware is newer, it will crash as soon as it tries to use something that's not actually in 1.76.

I don't think we will see a "Jailbreak" or a "cfw" this year.Maybe 2017. Best solution for now is if you have the money you can buy a second ps4 3.55 and below

If you don't have and want to buy just go for pro version. There is no proof/promises,only rumors about a kernel exploit.

Yes Kraken i think that, Fix FiX FIX.... You can search the difference in these three words, but if you don't cross good the 'Fix' in the 'Problem' might also make a problem in the problem... So here there are many way to resolve a problem and one is resolve the problem in the question.

One of these so all the system (PS4) make it a problem but between the Kernel 'FiX' (with small stable steps) we can finally resuming a balance of a stable Game run.... too over time of 1000000 YEAR.... :devilish::devilish::devilish: The solution may be a CFW !!! YES QUOTE YOUR POST !!!:D:D:eek:

PS: I was tired.... I remember that (BUILT-IN): the SYSTEM is followed by RULES and the RULES are followed by DATABASES so the THOUGHT is followed by IDEAS and the IDEAS are followed by IMAGINATION or CREATIVITY....
