PlayStation 4 jailbreak is here, confirms hacker on Twitter

PlayStation 4 jailbreak is a success, claims hacker CTurt on Twitter

A Twitter account with no profile photo and just over 2,000 followers called 'Cturt' has confirmed a Sony PlayStation 4 jailbreak success recently, telling the public that the "PS4 kernel exploit [is] finally working! Thanks to everyone involved!"




This jailbreak is said to enable a few interesting and helpful features, with CTurt explaining that this new breakthrough will enable users to "successfully dump RAM from other processes (like SceShellUI) using ptrace," further explaining that he will next be working on patching RAM.


While there is no posted guide, links or information as to how users can complete the same process on their consoles, there is a GitHub page of the same name, linked in the Twitter, where this information may surface in the near future. This news is exciting for developers looking at making custom firmware for the PlayStation 4, further opening up many other coding possibilities for community advancement of this device.
