Treat this squarely as rumour at this point, but we have potentially huge breaking news coming from a post to pastebin from hacker/group RECKZ0R of a working jailbreak for the ps4 as well as a leak of the full SDK (software development kit). RECKZ0R claims he used an exploit discovered by Brazilian hacker x-s4nd3r (who also leaked the SDK) to create the jailbreak and provides a full tutorial of how to apply the jailbreak (link below) – the drama comes from the fact that the mirrors of both the sdk and jailbreak files were immediately shut down.
What does this mean for you? “Jailbreaking” essentially allows a user to run unsanctioned code in the form of home-brew programs and tweaks (XBMC is probably the best known example of this) and also potentially paves the way for game piracy.
We’ll keep on top of this and let you know of any developments!
UPDATE: It appears Sony has contacted RECKZ0R via Twitter DM with various threats – again, could be an elaborate ruse but the plot thickens!
I have been away for a while, so my question to you is; did you miss me? I am aware that ya’ll were all thirsty for a cup of a fine Reckz0r release, so here I am…with a fine fuckin’ glass of a RECKZ0R release, yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! (did that sound sarcastic?)Before I get off started ridiculing Sony, I’d like to pay homage to Sir George Hotz, who looked into the eyes of Sony and made them ejaculate as they bowed down in fear. Very artistic of you, Geohotz.Now that, George Hotz has resigned from engaging in all types of sexual activities with an computer, and as all fans of PlayStation are crying for the comeback of GeoHotz..I’d let you all know, you don’t need that lil fuckin’ faggot. You really don’t.Well, alright….LET’S GET STARTED ALREADY!As you all know, PS4 runs Orbis OS, that is highly based on FreeBSD (which is a opensource operating system), and as the PS4 is closely identical to a PC, I guess you all knew that PS4 and the Xbox One will probably end up getting pwned soon, and now..its time.NOTE: I did not find this vulnerability within PS4, nor did I write the exploit, while I was browsing thru an Brazilian console-hacking forum known as condinh0 (I am sure you all know this if you hang out at TOR). A person named x-s4nd3r released the devkit of PS4, as well as the exploit within 5 days of PS4 release. Although most of you don’t know how to apply that jailbreak on the PS4, I am making this tutorial to sort this shit out for you.
