Proceeding the PS4 NoBD 4.74 to 5.05 Method, PS4HEN v2.1.2 and PS-Phwoar! Host Menu v1.2 updates enabling Backported Games to work without spoofing the Target ID to Devkit PlayStation 4 scene developer @Al Azif announced on Twitter that following the recent PS4 5.03 Offsets he updated his Github repository with PS4 OFW 5.03 Port forks of JKPatch and PS4HEN v2.1.2 which will allow those stuck on PS4 System Software 5.03 to update to a Jailbroken PS4 5.05 console once the upgrader work is done. šŸ„°

From the JKPatch Jailbreak Kernel Patches


  • Jailbreak
  • Sandbox escape
  • Enable UART
  • RPC server
  • RPC client in C#
I use the standard fake pkg keys, created by flatz.

General Notes

:alert: Only for 5.03 Jailbroken PlayStation 4 consoles!

The main jkpatch payload utilizes a port of CTurt's payload ***. Change the Makefile to have LIBPS4 point to the ps4-payload-*** directory on your machine. I could have it referenced from the home directory but meh...
# change this to point to your ps4-payload-*** directory
LIBPS4 := /home/John/ps4-payload-***/libPS4
If you decide to edit the resolve code in the kernel payload, make sure you do not mess with...
void resolve(uint64_t kernbase);
... as it is called from crt0.s. And changing this will produce errors.

See other branches for other kernel support. I will support latest publicly exploited firmware on main branch.

RPC Quickstart

See either Example.cs or look at the RPC documentation.

You can read/write memory, call functions, read/write kernel memory, and even load elfs.

Here is a cool example of an elf loaded into COD Ghosts (forge mod made by me!) You can download the source code to the forge mod here. Have fun!

Thank you to ChendoChap, idc, zecoxao, hitodama,, and anyone else I forgot!

PS4HEN v2.1.2 & JKPatch 5.03 Ports for Updating to 5.05 PS4 Firmware.jpg



It needs verification on the BD drive, I believe, so 5.3 is the most recent firmware a ps4 with a broken / missing BD drive can update to - I've been told... Don't wanna buy a second ps4 with broken disc drive just to test that out, though
