Hi all,
I've been reading news in this site since January 2016...sometime a news seems to me very promising sometime less.... Is there someone that can sum up whether or no ps4 will be jailbroken ? If so, by when? which firmware? Which features?

I've frozen my ps4 more than one year ago , waiting for a jailbreak, but I haven't heard any news since then.

Thanks,

I merged your post in the ongoing Sticky for this topic... besides the PS4 Dlclose Exploit (through 1.76), the Chaitin Tech PS4 Exploit (through 4.05) and the PS4 Pro 0Day Exploit (through 3.70, possibly higher) it's pretty much as you guessed... a waiting game.

There's always a chance something more will be revealed by Fail0verflow at CCC 2016 but I wouldn't bet on it... as always, time will tell.
Okay so here is what I know. I know for a fact that there is cfw around for the ps4. No its not public and it may not ever be.

With the people that make this stuff there are reasons that they may want to keep it out of the public eye. For one is that it doesn't really show Sony what they are doing, there fore Sony can't patch it later. And it also allows them to play with it and not worry about Sony messing with it.

Okay moving on, so what I know. There is cfw for the ps4. The biggest question is what firmware is it on, we'll the ones that I have seen is on 1.76 and I haven't seen anything higher. From what I have heard is that they are close to getting it to work on higher but nothing has been shown to me about it.

On the higher firmware 3.50 I have seen a backup loader type of program working on one and it does load backups. Only some games work and some don't. It doesn't play online and it doesn't allow updates for the games. For higher firmware 3.50, they are working on things to work on higher firmware. But nothing has come out so far for higher firmware.

Okay so what do I have here at the house? I do have copies of the 1.76 cfw here, I haven't tried it on my systems but I was thinking about giving it a try. I have 2 systems that are on 1.76 or lower. Next the big question is when will it come out? I don't know the answer to this one at all. Please don't PM me and ask to have me send it to you.

One thing is that it won't happen, when I get this to test, I have to promise them that I won't release it to others and I have and never will release things to others. In all the years of messing around with systems and other things I have never release things and I will never release them, so please don't ask. Next is that I had to ask if I could post this up and tell what was out and about.

So to sum it up on what I know for sure. I have seen cfw on a ps4 running at firmware 1.76 and I have a copy of the firmware to try if I want to. The problem is that I don't if it will brick the system and I don't know of a way to unbrick the system as if yet. I have seen pictures of loaders working on a ps4 running on firmware 3.50. I have talked to hackers / friends that have been working on the setting systems and know that there are things that they are working on with firmware higher than 3.50.

As of right now lol, this is all that I can say. Once more is known I will post up, if it's okay with the people that work on this stuff. Again I didn't make the cfw or the loaders for this. I can't release it and I won't so please don't ask. I will ask about maybe posting a video or pictures of this stuff working. Maybe a video once I get the balls to try it on my brand new ps4 still in the box.

This is what I know, if more people know more than please add this. I know that a lot of stuff is being done with the new systems and it will come out at some point. I know that the Xbox one is being worked on and they are close. The wii u has been hacked and something like cfw is around for that. that is hearsay I have not seen it. and the ps4 is getting there fast, so sit back and relax, things will be coming out soon for all this stuff. thanks all

Thanks for the detailed update @racer0018 I know you're putting a lot on the line opening up about stuff that isn't ever intended to be passed around! (y)

And yeah, I'm sure people like Chaitin Tech and other groups have PS4 jailbreaks and private CFW... so you don't have to convince me they exist. ;)

Of course being private they don't really factor into the public PS4 hacking scene... it's great to know they are possible though and I'm sure sooner or later someone will release something for the rest of the scene :)

I have that CFW too, it bricked my system, so i had to unbrick it by connecting my Nintendo 3DS, not the new one, the old one, then i had to insert a PS3 Jig into that and press XYZ and what do you know it was unbricked, i am now playing Uncharted 5 on my Xbox Scorpion
