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.
